Excellent all round holiday accommodation and base for West Cork. Plenty of room for all of our family requirements and luggage. Able to totally relax because of the nature of the accommodation, would certainly stay there again.

El Dorado was a fantastic place for our family to home base for our West Cork week in Ireland. The vacation home was more than we could have expected in all regards. We will look forward to returning there in 4 years on our next trip.

The El Dorado is a large, very spacious modern home. There are 5 good sized bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, large kitchen, 2 family rooms and a sunroom with all the comforts of home. It is situated within walking distance to Drinagh (market, etc). It is conveniently located to Dunmanway and Clonakilty and not to far from Bantry and Cork. The owners are extremely accommodating. I recommend most highly!
