  • "Firstly I'm sorry because I wrote a review for Achill View thinking I was reviewing Upper Haven."

    Sorry! All I can say is that both cottages were wonderful - the comment about heating/hot water instructions was meant for Upper Haven. We recommend both 100% - they were both superb - we will go back.

    Roy and Jan Thank you so much for the great review and also for leaving the house so squeaky clean..you can come back anytime..Cathy. Property Owner

  • "We had a fantastic holiday at Upper Haven my husband just had surgery two weeks previous and his mobility was limited but the house was brilliant easy access and easy to move around in just what we needed."

    it had the most spectacular view and was lovely watching the sun set in the evening. Our hosts Paul and Cathy where very friendly and helpful. There is so much to see and do on the berra peninsula we will definitely be back to upper Haven for another break and would recommend without hesitation to everyone to go and stay at Upper Haven and experience the beauty and relaxation that it has to offer.

    The Beara peninsula is wonderful but you need to have a decent car to go on the smaller roads

  • "Our whole family had a wonderful holiday in Upper Haven, the photos of the house and of the views do not do justice to this lovely home in such an amazing location."

    Cathy, Paul and their daughter Fiona couldn't have been more helpful, especially helping us find a trustworthy mechanic when we had car trouble. We hope to return soon with my elderly parents for another relaxing stay.

    This beautiful house is a home away from home. It has everything you need for a family holiday, and the views are simply amazing, surrounded by the amazing changing colours of Autumn, really nice friendly neighbours and the locals are so kind and helpful. A great place for some amazing walks and the sunsets were out of this world. We would definitely stay here again.

    The cottage was more than adequate with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths with showers. Cathy snd her husband were extremly helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. With such a roomy house and beautiful view of Kenmare Bay and convenient access to Castletownbere we can recommend Upper Haven cottage to anyone wishing to explore the West Cork and Kerry area, from Bantry to Kenmare in quiet comfort. Thanks to the Hartnetts. Richard & Denise H.

The property

Enveloped by verdant fields backed by rolling hills and with access to the lovely town of Eyeries close by, is Upper Haven.

This delightful bungalow offers families, friends and couples the chance to get away-from-it-all and discover peace and tranquility, with views towards the sea and plenty of space to relax inside.

Set within the wonderful region of County Cork in Ireland, you have secluded beaches, watersports activities and fabulous walking country all within easy reach.

The well-equipped kitchen is fitted in a country cottage fashion, with a dining table and seating, so you can take the weight off you feet as you prepare a delicious meal for the family.

There is also a shower room and utility housing laundry facilities, just off from here.

As well as the shower room, you have a bathroom, ideal for when all you crave is a hot soak in the tub, on return from a long trek over The Beara Way.

Down the corridor is a bright and airy living room with dual aspect and a woodburning stove set within a lovely surround, adding warmth to those cold winter evenings.

If nothing takes your fancy on TV, you can simply chat about the day you've had over a cup of tea.

Or if you want some quiet time to yourself, move through to the extra dining area in the hall and take in the magnificent views across a patchwork of fields.

Slide open the glass doors on a balmy afternoon and read your favourite book outside, enjoying the natural surroundings with a cold drink.

You have four bedrooms to choose from at the end of the day including three doubles and a twin, perfect for larger groups.

Outside is the garden, with fields at the back where sheep like to graze.

You are welcome to bring along your four-legged friends for a holiday of their own, but be mindful that the garden is not enclosed.
