Guest Reviews


    • “Coming back to Mollie's Cottage after sightseeing was great as it was so comfortable and cosy to stay in and the owners really welcomed us when we arrived. Both myself and partner would definitely come back to Mollie's Cottage.”

    Mr Smiley, Carrickfergus, August 2015

    • “The property was very compact but we still were comfortable with two adults in the party and a lively dog. The hosts couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating - incredibly friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. It was situated within 5 minutes walk of village shops and pubs, the property is an excellent base for touring the area. Highly recommended!”

    Mr Hardie, Eastleigh, May 2015

    • “I cannot recommend Mollies Cottage highly enough! My sister and I were bowled away by the hospitality and kindness of the owners. If you want a stress free holiday, fantastic scenery, good location for reaching all places and good authentic Irish music, this is the holiday for you. We immediately connected with the hosts and made firm friends with the locals.”

    Ms Newnham, Portsmouth, May 2015

    • “I especially liked the fact that the cottage was "pet friendly" and we were able to bring our dog. The owners of the cottage were excellent hosts - very friendly and helpful. The cottage was in a beautiful location in West Cork just several hundred metres from the beach and an ideal base for visiting Killarney, Bantry, Cobh and Kinsale.”

    Miss Cohen, Belfast, May 2015

    • “Extremely warm & attentive owners and perfect if you have a dog. Close to a great beach, good restaurants and bars. A really relaxed and calm place to visit and you feel the owners want you to really enjoy your stay.”

    Dr McElroy, Belfast, September 2014

    • “Lots of positives from this holiday. Rosscarberry is a good base from which to explore Co. Cork, and this part of Ireland is beautiful with amazing scenery, lots of things to see and do, and very friendly locals. We were very lucky with the weather so could take advantage of the many lovely beaches within a few miles of the cottage. Our favourite pub in Rosscarberry was Nolan's in the town square, but there were two others also, along with restaurants, a takeaway, and a range of shops. Worth visiting are Drombeg stone circle, Sherkin Island, Mizen Head (via a scenic drive), Blarney Castle, Fota wildlife park, Cork City (loads of pubs!), and one of the many pony trekking centres around Bantry. There are also lots of walks available for all levels of ability. The cottage itself was lovely and cosy, with all facilities available, including a utility room for emergency washing, drying and extra storage if needed. The cottage owners were most friendly and helpful, and made sure that we were welcome and comfortable throughout our stay. All in all, thoroughly recommended!”

    Mrs Creagh, Ipswich, June 2014

About the location


Clonakilty 8 miles; Skibbereen 13 miles.

Situated at the head of a tidal inlet about a mile inland from the sea and located between Skibbereen and Clonakilty, Rosscarbery makes for an ideal holiday destination. Dating back to the 6th century, this sleepy country town was once one of the major European cities and famed as a centre of learning, having previously been a university town. Nowadays it is home to a much smaller population and benefits from a lovely laid back and relaxed atmosphere. There are quaint little shops and good Irish pubs as well as a number of quality restaurants to tempt your taste buds. The town itself is in close proximity to three fine beaches, the nearest of which, Warren Beach holds the prestigious Blue Flag status. Those who enjoy watersports are well catered for and there are great opportunities for walking, cycling and golf nearby.
