                                                          Comfortable cottage in good location

                                                          Jo E.Cheshire, UK

                                                          Spring Well Cottage was the perfect holiday home for the two of us, perched in a picturesque ideal for exploring the area.

                                                          The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and very 'easy' to live in. The kitchen was well equipped with plates and cups etc and cooking items and the cooker was efficient, a bonus was the dishwasher. The wifi was perfectly usuabke for emails and social media use and a DVD player was available, I would suggest that you take some of your own favourite films, the collection at the cottage was not a kRge as some other places we had stopped.

                                                          We have stopped in the area on numerous occasions so knew what to expect from local amenities, but we were sunrises at how well placed the footage was for access to local pubs,cafes and restaurants the nearest being only 15 minutes drive away.

                                                          Communication with the owner and caretaker was very good and reassuring to know that someone was on hand if there were any problems, of which we had none.

                                                          The peace and quiet and the fantastic vista made this the perfect place, whilst not being totally isolated either.

                                                          We plan to return and holiday at Springwell sometime soon.

                                                          Great property with great views

                                                          A clean and neat property away from it all, with great views.


                                                          Siobhan G.

                                                          Fantastic place. Stunning views. Close to fantastic hidden beach and many walks. A week is not long enough.

                                                          House was modern clean with all mod cons.

                                                          Would highly recommend it. Very good value.

                                                          We thought we were in paradise! it was THAT good.

                                                          We stayed in Springwell Cottage for Christmas - and all I can say is WOW!!! The Manager, Margaret, told me the cottage had been completely refurbished and was just being opened up again for bookings - it is beautiful!! The views from the cottage is over the Atlantic Ocean and they are stunning. The photos on the website just do not do this place justice - its twice as good.

                                                          The cottage has everything we needed for this to be a memorable holiday and we will definitely be back to this part of Ireland.

                                                          New Year in Ireland

                                                          Janet M.

                                                          What can I say. We wanted a get away from it all New Year and we certainly got that and more. We found this on the website and liked what we saw but when we arrived it was totally overwhelming. The cottage has just gone through a total refurbishment and is amazing. It had everything we needed and was so comfortable.The views from the windows was stunning. Have to say Margaret (the Manager) was so friendly and helpful. We loved the log burner and we were just happy to relax in the cosy surroundings. We have booked to go back in the summer to explore this beautiful part of Ireland.

                                                          Thank you for your review!! We have just reopened this cottage after its total refurbishment and its nice to know all the hard work has been appreciated!! We look forward to seeing you both again in the summer.


                                                          Wunderschöner erholsamer Urlaub

                                                          Annegret K.

                                                          Der Aufenthalt im Springwell Cottage hat uns sehr gefallen - der Blick aus dem Fenster auf den Kenmare River und die dahinterliegenden Berge gleich am frühen Morgen, über den Tag und abends war immer wieder schön.

                                                          Das Ferienhaus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man für knapp 3 Urlaubswochen benötigt - sogar mit Waschmaschine, Backofen, Mikrowelle, WLAN, ...

                                                          Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen. Die Menschen waren alle sehr nett, die Städte luden zum Bummeln ein, die Gegend zum Wandern - auch wenn nicht jeder Wanderweg deutlich ausgeschildert war, hat es sehr viel Spaß gemacht, z. B. den Hungry Hill zu erklimmen, ... und an den Linksverkehr haben wir uns auch relativ schnell gewöhnt.

                                                          Vielen Dank, dass wir in diesem wunderbaren Ferienhaus wohnen durften.

                                                          We had a nice time in Ireland in the Springwell Cottage. Beara Peninsula is beautiful. I hope we have the chance to come back to Ireland soon. Thank you for all.
