Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. This is a perfect holiday hideaway cottage, in a superb location on a small headland overlooking a small beach, yet the nearest town is only 15 minutes away. I don’t think it could be improved upon. The lack of a TV is a positive benefit! Sept 2012.
  2. Lovely position, on it’s own a few yards from small cove/beach. Beautiful views, very quiet and private, our dogs loved it, very dog friendly!! Great pubs and restaurants locally, (although none within walking distance) had a week of wonderful food. Fresh fish particularly recommended at Union Hall, Castletownshend and Glandore. Only complaint was hot water system couldn’t really cope, impossible to have more than 4" of hot water in the bath before it ran out ! June 2011.
  3. This property is ideal for those who wish to truly get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. It sits on high ground over looking a lough and what is almost a private beach. There is ample opportunity for nature walks around the area, but car owners be aware of narrow roads with lots of potholes and uneven surfaces. Sept 2010.
  4. Lovely cottage in a beautiful location. Aug 2010.
  5. Good location, very peaceful. Cottage cosy but well appointed. July 2010.
  6. Property was clean and a great location. Outside space was good for kids and dog. July 2010.
  7. Drishane Cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Peaceful location, homely feel and excellent views! We will certainly be returning in the future! Feb 2010.
  8. Clean, cosy and well equipped. Lovely location. Dec 2009.
  9. Peace and quiet. Nov 2009.
  10. Very quiet and out of the way, nice views. July 2009.
  11. The accommodation was basic but clean, comfortable and quite adequate. Suits the nature of the cottage and quite in keeping with the feel of the property. July 2009.
  12. A fabulous cottage in a dream remote location. July 2008.
  13. The cottage is in a beautiful location standing alone at the top of a hill with great views of the sea. Sept 2008.
  14. The cottage was very relaxing, scenery wonderful, surrounding area beautiful. We had a really lovely, peaceful holiday. June 2008.
  15. Lovely spot, friendly and just simply a joy to be there. Dec 2007.
  16. Mary the housekeeper... an absolute gem! Sept 2007.
  17. An excellent holiday overall. Arriving was rather confusing as the property was on a beach with three other houses. It was not clear where Drishane was once we arrived at the beach. Otherwise we found the property well equipped and very comfortable. The owner must have thought of everything. We hope to book it again. Sept 2007.
  18. A perfectly situated cottage, with wonderful cliff top walks right on your door step. The views and the wildlife are incredible whatever the weather. May 2007.
  19. We loved the fact that it said that does on the tin! it was spot on in description being secluded exactly what we wanted. Dec 2007.
