Really lovely remote hideaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in eco house. The house was interesting and cosy. The pool looked fantastic but was freezing so we didn't get as much use of it as we had hoped! The location is beautiful with stunning views. We loved exploring the surrounding areas of durrus, schull and bantry and returning to our beautiful bolthole.

What a beautiful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect place to base our Holiday from. The location was jaw dropping and the Swimming Pool although not the warmest was used everyday by our 2 teenage boys and myself. The house itself was quirky and the facilities were all there. The whole experience was flawless and I would highly recommend staying here.

Absolutely Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, just wow. The Eco-House surpassed our expectations. The house was beautiful, clean, gorgeous, and satisfied the needs of our family of four very nicely. It is important to know that it is very out of the way, and you have to drive pretty far for excursions or even a grocery store! But the house had all the touches of home and we loved it. The notebook with daily excursion recommendations was priceless, we felt like real locals! The pub at the bottom of the hill had some of the best food we had the entire trip. The views were picture postcard perfect. We highly recommend Eco-House for families or a romantic getaway.
