A Shining Example

  • 5 of 5

Basically for our first trip to Ireland this cottage exceeded our expectations. On arrival the owners greeted us with a welcoming bottle of red and a fresh-baked artisan loaf. And things only got better. The cottage was a delight. Beautifully furnished and comfortable. If the proof of really great accommodation lies in the ability to feel truly relaxed by doing nothing and just admiring the view, then this is just the cottage. Would I recommend it to friends? Naturally. But it was so good, I'd prefer to keep it a secret! A truly memorable holiday.

Stunning views says it all! Tremendous place. 5 stars

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely fantastic place. We had a great time. The place has stunning views just under the lighthouse. It's like being on a boat. We even saw Alex Thompson on his Hugo boss boat go out. The place is spotlessly clean and well equipped.

The view of the Celtic sea was amazing. We enjoyed watching the sea and the ships. The property was nicely renovated with everything we needed. The neighborhood and lighthouse were very interesting. The neighbors were lovely

Spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of November at the lighthouse cottage at Roches Point. It's hard to describe how beautiful our time there was. From the moment we walked into the courtyard and looked into the house to see the gorgeous Irish Sea, we felt like we were in a fantasy. The view from every single room is just fantastic. The cottage is completely updated - modern kitchen fully stocked with with everything someone who loves to cook could want or need. Beautiful bathrooms with heated floors. Cozy living room with a fireplace and views into Cobh Harbor. Lovely neighbors who were helpful and sweet. And Malcolm was fantastic as well very responsive with every inquiry we had before and during our stay. This is a magical place and if you ever have a chance to get to this part of the world, I recommend without reservation the beautiful lighthouse at Roches Point!!!
