The cottage was clean, done up well and modern. It had everything we needed to make our stay in Ireland relaxing and enjoyable. The setting was perfect - quiet yet within reach of all the amenities we needed. We are definitely considering returning again.

We stayed here in July with our Golden Retriever in July and we loved it. Cottage is right on the pier of Knightstown, and only 30 meters walk from the hotel and other amenities. The cottage has everything you require, its fantastic, it even has Wifi which I was impressed with for self catering. would highly recommend and will definitely be back!

Watch House is conveniently located in Knightstown and is a good place to stay and explore Valentia Island. The house has everything you need but is a bit smaller than the pictures reflect.
