Wonderful hospitality in a nice village

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 adults, 1 child) stayed here for 6 nights in August 2016. We were delighted with the accommodation; very clean, very well supplied. The village is nice...good supply of handy restaurants, and Rosscarbery is in a good location to visit lots of sights in SW Cork, and Nora gave us suggestions for places to vist as well. Any issues we had with the apartment were very promptly dealt with by Nora. And when our son was unwell on the last day, she was able to extend our stay for another day while he recovered, which was a huge relief for us, and for which we are very thankful to Nora and the owner. So, great location, wonderful hospitality....we could come back here in a heartbeat! Thank you Nora!

Great Place in a Quaint Town

  • 5 of 5

We just spent two nights here, but the apartment was nice and quaint and Nora was excellent! We were able to get the place last minute and Nora was kind enough to make sure it was ready and even have time to provide us with some homemade scones. We wish we could have stayed another day or two to enjoy the area more. Most of the reviews I see mention how wonderful Nora is and that is completely true. She takes great care of her guests with excellent recommendations on what to see close by.

Wonderful apartment and hostess

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four adults stayed in the apartment for five days. We couldn't have asked for a better place for a home base to go to the Ring of Kerry, Clonakilty and Kinsale. We also took in the beaches around Rosscarbery and the Galley Head Lighthouse for fabulous views.

Nora provided a comfortable living space, scones and tea on arrival and wonderful conversation as well as many helpful suggestions. We highly recommend this apartment.

No surprises, excellent owner service

  • 5 of 5

This was the first VRBO experience for we three older Canadian travelers and it was totally positive. We concur with all the positive comments of other travelers about the property and the area. The owner, Nora, could not have been more helpful and easy to deal with. She lives and works just down the street. Our impression is that you could not find a more honest and forthright individual. It is good to be able to deal directly with the owner. The apartment is just as shown in the photographs. It is up a short flight of stairs, something not really obvious in the photos. There are a couple of things we should have known which are no reflection on the property: It can rain an awful lot in Ireland, so if you are a walker, be prepared. We did hit a bad week in that regard but still enjoyed a number of lovely walks around the lagoon and on either side of the estuary out to the ocean. For us North American drivers, the N71 through Rosscarbery was easy enough to drive, but secondary roads were a bit nerve-wracking at first. Beyond the challenge left-side driving, the secondary roads are very narrow (by our standards) allowing little to no room for passing, occasionally with ominous stone walls on the left side of the car. Even on the N71, day-trips take longer than you might expect. Ireland is lovely; stunning when the sun comes out.

Great location, well equipped, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We last stayed at this apartment 7 years ago.

We love Rosscarbery and the location of this apartment could not be more central. Although a car is recommended to visit the many beautiful spots in the Rosscarbery area, being in the town square the apartment is literally two minutes walk from restaurants, bars and shops!

Nora gave us a very warm welcome back with freshly baked scones, jam, etc., waiting for us on arrival.

The apartment is well equipped - especially the kitchen which, though compact, is well designed and has all you could want if you prefer to cook for yourselves rather than venture out.

We had a great time and would happily recommend this apartment.
