  • "A lovely cottage, really peaceful and charming in a quiet location."

    We thoroughly enjoyed a restful time at Sugarbush cottage. Communication with the key holder was easy and efficient. The man working on the building next door was a delight…. If you walked all of Ireland you wouldn’t meet a nicer and more gifted man. This isn’t a place for internet or phone coverage…. But that was ultimately a gift. Would love to go back k to Sugarbush cottage again sometime. Thanks for everything.

  • "We absolutely loved the cottage."

    The view of the hills and the bay, the lambs in the pasture... The sun room was our favorite family area. A lovely country retreat, no too far from some lovely walks and drives.

  • "The caretaker was very friendly, the view was lovely, but the cottage was so untidy , if you took a shower, you got only hot or icey drops!"

  • "The cottage is very well located looking east across a low area with hills behind, but the dramatic, rocky landscape of the western end of the peninsula starts just uphill from the house."

    There is also a very pleasant quiet, pebbly beach just 5 minutes' walk down a small road beside the house where our dog and I could swim happily even on rainy days. The sunroom is a real asset as the view east is an endless source of interest and it makes a bright, relaxed communal space.

  • "It's unbelievable that as an Irish person living in Ireland that I have to book ..."

    It's unbelievable that as an Irish person living in Ireland that I have to book a house in County Cork in Ireland though an English website, and any phone enquiries I had to make were to an English number, this is the last time I will use Hogan's Irish Cottages, and it's just for that reason I wonder if I wanted to book a holiday in an English cottage would I have to contact an Irish website, I doubt it While I was there I got contact details of local home owners who have properties to rent, so in the future I will look locally or go Airbnb

  • "Fantastic place to visit, beautiful view of the coast and mountains from the porch."

    Greatly recommended for any type of trip, if you're looking to get away from the usual bore. Pretty secluded location makes this a perfect getaway.

Be sure to check out the Beara Peninsula’s majestic scenery, where towering mountains trail down to meet the sea and stunning beaches.

There are wonderful walks to be enjoyed, and you’ll also find the opportunity to trek through the ancient, mysterious landscape on horseback, spotting old relics on the way, or why not visit one of the local art and craft galleries to pick up a treasured keepsake of this beautiful area?
