  • "Stunning house, huge and with a lot of character."

    Spotless and equipped literally with everything you need. We even found a slow cooker, which we love. The view of the sea and the mountains is priceless. Waking up every morning and enjoy the fresh air of the mountains marvellously mixed with the fresh air coming from the sea is pure heaven. Waterville is very near, with broad choice of restaurants, coffe shops, etc. The host was kind and attentive. Most of all we appreciated the privacy, an important aspect to us when we go on holiday. We knew that the host was available for any need though. The only area of improvement is related to beds, which are a bit small, but other than that everything was simply perfect.

  • "Amazing location, well equipped and comfortable house that has been decorated with care."

    We particularly liked the friendly cows in the fields opposite! Beaches to die for. Also an incredible ring fort just up the road. Would benefit from a laminated ‘welcome folder’ explaining how house worked eg. wifi code, disposal of rubbish, recommended beaches & restaurants & tours to nearby islands but this is just a suggestion!

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and would’ve loved to have stayed longer."

    The house was warm, and comfortable. We had everything we needed in the house for our group of 4 adults and 6 children. Fiona was friendly, helpful and hospitable. There were lots of places not open due to the pandemic, but we found everything we needed in nearby Waterville and Cahersiveen. There were also plenty of beautiful beaches and places to go for walks and drives within a close distance. There are so many nearby restaurants in Waterville, so we look forward to returning and trying them out when they are allowed to reopen.

  • "Perfect for relaxing."

    We were 2 families with 4 early 20 year old ‘children’. The house was fabulous in size allowing everyone to have their own space when needed. The kitchen had everything and more that was required, plenty of towels and tea towels. It had 2 fridges, one was under-counter, the other a fridge/freezer. There is another small fridge out in the garage. The cooker is an ‘aga’ style. All bedrooms had either twin or double beds. Two of them - one upstairs and one downstairs have en-suites. The lounge is very comfortable with a tv that has Netflix, and a cd/radio player too. The views are amazing and it is so peaceful yet 5 minutes sees you on the N70, the main road to e.g. Killarney one way or Kenmare the other. Wish I had been able to stay longer.

    Good communication from Sykes and the owner. Out first time in Ireland and the whole experience was fantastic! Cottage was fabulous with stunning views over Ballinskelligs Bay and the surrounding mountains. Thank you Sykes.

  • "The accommodation had everything we needed and more."

    The weather of course was superb and the scenery and setting was just incredible. We couldn't have asked for more.

  • "I am in the travel industry and have traveled a lot in Europe."

    The house was very spacious with amazing views - one of the best we've experienced in all of Europe. The only main issue we had was finding it when we first arrived. Directions weren't as clear as they could be. The beds were on the small side (which is what we've encountered everywhere else in Ireland) but we had a comfortable stay. The owner and local housekeeper were quick to respond to our calls and texts. We enjoyed our stay here and were sad to leave! Hope to be back some day.

  • "Everything was perfect!"

    I'm not sure why is it listed for 8 adults only as it would be perfectly fine for 10 (there are 10 comfortable beds: 8 double beds, 2 twin of a regular size) or even 12 if needed (two large comfortable couches). But there could be slightly bigger table in the dinning area with more chairs. We loved it, nothing is missing there, communication with the owner was nice and easy, the place is just amazing. I would recommand Carraig Oisin to my best friends!
