                                                            Great location, lovely to be able to walk on farm.

                                                            Good base for trips around West Cork.

                                                            Spacious, light, views westwards.

                                                            On a working farm, with nice walking amongst goats and pigs. And onto moorland with further views over adjacent hills.

                                                            Wonderful Cottage. Owners and Scenery


                                                            We loved staying in this cottage. It was great being greeted by goats and dogs in the morning. The cottage was super warm, spacious and comfy. Wifi would be good so we did not need to interrupt the owners to use theirs in their house. The views were beautiful even in winter, as the yellow gorse splashed colour on the surrounding hills. Many thanks Walter & Josephine.

                                                            Loughbeg Farm Lowertown.

                                                            Maria W.

                                                            We had a very comfortable and peaceful stay. The weather was great and the views from the cottage were superb.

                                                            Anyone who wanted a quiet and peaceful stay, this was an ideal cottage. Plenty to do and sea within a reasonable distance

                                                            with the nearest town about a 10 minutes drive away.

                                                            The cottage was clean and tidy and had everything that you needed for your stay.

                                                            Walter and Josephene were perfect hosts.

                                                            We had visits from their pets, the goats and the pig. The cows greeted us every morning over the fence.

                                                            The local pub in Schull was great and the food was super.

                                                            A Fantastic Stay!

                                                            Elke S.

                                                            this is one of the reviews that you don't really want to be doing because you want to keep the secret of the place to yourself! But Josephine and Walter really deserve to have the word gotten out about their place, so here goes:

                                                            We spent a week at the holiday rental in July, with our 2 girls (6 and 8). The house is very comfortable and also beautiful, with wonderful views and all set up for a family of 4, including tons of board games which my 8 year old loved.

                                                            My 6 year old loved "helping" at the farm - mainly carrying the (slightly terrified) ducklings from one cage to the other. In the evenings, we would have a family walk with the resident billy goat, and the kids both were so charmed with it they insisted they'd rather have a goat than a dog. There are paths on the property that lead to some nice ocean views, through the goat pasture, and it's great fun for the kids. There's also a playground, and there were 2 nice dogs, which is a plus with my kids.

                                                            In short, we liked it so much we would love to return. The town of Schull is nearby, where they have a fun farmer's market and a bunch of restaurants and boutiques that make for fun strolling. Barleycove beach is a short rive away. For smaller children, there is another great beach even closer than Barleycove.

                                                            thanks for a great stay!
