Liked the all round excellence.

We loved Everything, we love West Cork. The area where this house is located, Tragumna has a blue flag beach and has beautiful countryside around it; there is a great mix of beaches and beautiful countryside locally. We will go back to stay in this area again! The house itself has lots of rooms and space and is very well laid out as a holiday home. The owner of the house is a lovely gentleman, who is a genuinely warm, welcoming and friendly/down to earth person. He lives in the area and knows it well and can tell you anything you need/want to know. This is our third time as a family to holiday in West Cork and this was our favourite holiday so far out of the 3. We are already looking to book again for next year!

We arrived to be greeted by the owner, he was friendly and informative, eplained the workings of the house and told us about the area. The house was comfortable and very clean. There was a little welcome pack much appreciated after a long journey. The area is amazing and very central for exploring.

The Lookout was very cosy, we had a day of bad weather but didn't mind as the fire made it warm and comfortable. The garden would be nice for children, although we didn't have any with us! Skibbereen Owner met us on arrival and was very helpful, he couldn't have been friendlier.

I would highly recommend this house! Everything that is needed daily is provided, it's nicely decorated, clean and the owner is great. The sea view is lovely and it is very peaceful. This is the place to be for rest and enjoyment of the landscape. In one word, BRILLIANT!
