This was perfect in every way. We were provided with everything we needed and more. It was warm and comfortable in a stunning location with a pleasant owner. It is a fabulous area for days out and restaurants. The Jacuzzi and ornate garden were a bonus. We can definitely recommend and will book again.

Birch Tree Cottage is an amazingly beautiful and comfortable house with views to die for. The attention to details was more than we expected. The owners were friendly and helpful.

The cottage was one of the best we've stayed in. A beautiful location and a wonderful cottage. Everything you could want was provided and it worked brilliantly for us as two couples staying there. The garden was an absolute delight. The cottage was brilliantly located being within 10 minutes walk (5 minutes cycle ride) from town, yet feeling as though you were in the country and with amazing views.

I have to say that this is the best. The owners did so much for us and are so warm, friendly and helpful, I can not wish for anything more. I am already looking to see when I can return! All is perfect with the house and it is all to a high standard. Out 10 I would give 11/10! or higher. All was perfect.

The cottage is perfect; all furniture, house and garden are in an excellent condition. The owner is very friendly. For the next stay in the South West of Ireland there is no alternative to Birch Tree Cottage.

The holiday was amazing, made 100% better by the owners friendliness and helpfulness. We had an amazing time and enjoyed every minute of being at Birch Tree Cottage. Would recommend to anyone. The property is wonderful, everything is immaculate and wonderful. The views of the local area were breathtaking.

Really fantastic cottage to stay in. Immaculate inside and out. About half a mile from the fishing village. Beautiful views of the mountains in front and back. It was a long drive from the ferry port of Rosslare, but well worth it when you arrived. The village is on the Ring of Beara, so there is lots to see. Don't miss the only cable car in Ireland. You can pay to go in it to Dursey Island. Its the only cable car to go over open sea. Overall we had a fantastic week staying in this cottage.

This place is the most amazing place l have ever stayed at. The cottage/house is as good if not better than the pictures on website. We arrived and found,fruit bread milk tea etc etc etc there for us. Warm and spotlessly clean. Kitchen with every conceivable thing you would need. Washing facilities,so don't go taking piles of clothes,it's easy in washing machine with indoor drying area as well as outdoor. Tv s everywhere. DVDs player in fact if you can find anything that the owner hasn't catered for you're a better man than me Gungadin. I called Betty for directions for collecting the keys,what a lovely friendly lady she is. Nothing was to much bother for her and her family. Well now l have been spoils,so l am going to find it very hard to follow a place like this. Thank you so much Betty for everything,we loved your house and we will be back.

We were more than happy with every aspect of this "cottage" location, amenities, more than you could ask for , the owner had thought of every detail. Clean comfortable and wonderful to return to after a day exploring the magical coast of West Cork, the Ring of Beara is breath-taking and a wow around every bend.... Evenings spent in the town were pretty good to !! Everyone so friendly.

This holiday cottage was great. Excellent location, detached from immediate neighbours, peaceful, 1km from heart of town - far enough out to be quiet, close enough to walk into town (and back, after a meal!). Everything was spotlessly clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped. Plenty of hot water for multiple baths if needed (easy to work heating / hot water controls). There was plenty of space and seating for people to spread out (the lounge, the conservatory, and settee in dining room). This also allowed for people who like different ambient temperatures - warmer in the conservatory, cooler in the sitting room. Beautiful garden. Use of garage, very useful for bikes or other equipment. Owners very welcoming and friendly. The town itself has some good places to eat, and Supavalu store has all the basics and more, and good walking and cycling locally.
