Five comfortable bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities, including a wet room-style shower room, offer excellent sleeping accommodation. The highlight of this Waterville cottage is undoubtedly the panoramic sea and mountain views, which stretch all the way to the Skellig Islands, and can be enjoyed from within the cottage, but are best experienced from the sunny patio area.
