  • "Thank you for a lovely stay at the chocolate box, everything was as described in the listing and we had a great time."

    It was a perfect location for exploring West Cork and a very cosy cottage to return to when the rain started.

  • "Our 8 night stay in 'The Chocolate Box ' was interesting."

    I telephoned the owner on our day of arrival to be informed that we would not be able to access the premises until 4pm and not 3pm as was stated in our contract. The written directions, provided by Sykes, were useless. Over the phone I asked the owner for directions to the property. Her directions, at best, were esoteric, confused and unhelpful. We are proprietors of self catering flats and had we offered a similar service we would certainly have been expecting complaints

  • "Impossible to find the cottage as directions to it were dire ."

    We almost gave up. The directions need to be improved Cottage was ok apart from being rather basic but had everything we needed. Had a great wood burner which was for our one cold night

    The cottage was brilliant apart from the steps down to one of the bedrooms which we were not told about it wouldn't have mattered but my brother uses a walker so it was abit awkward and we were told it was all on one level but apart from that the place was fantastic and the host were lovely people

The property

Ballydehob 4.4 miles.

This cottage in Lissaclarig East is the perfect place for a family getaway.

With a woodburning stove to curl up beside and off-road parking for when you want to explore the local area, this family-friendly abode is a great base for exploring County Cork.

Step inside and locate the galley kitchen/diner, which has an electric oven, hob, a microwave, and a washing machine, which makes it very practical for a self-catered stay.

The space also has dining seating, so you can eat your food fresh from the oven as you relax in the dining area.

If the weather is warm, carry the conversation outside onto the small lawn where outdoor seating offers alfresco dining.

As the evening cools, retire inside and choose between two bedrooms, the first bedroom is a spacious double room containing ample storage for keeping your possessions and the second contains twin beds, ideal for kids.

Each bedroom has a shower room adjacent for your convenience so in the morning you can have a quick wash before joining your guests in the kitchen/diner for a brew.

Venture into Ballydehob, a quaint village home to a number of great restaurants and bars.

Budds Restaurant is a local favourite, serving up traditional Irish fare.

Le Petit Bistro is a great option for a romantic dinner, offering French-inspired cuisine.

Ballydehob is also home to Hudsons Wholefoods, a great place to stock up on supplies for your trip.

If you're looking for a place to learn about the heritage of Ireland, Skibbereen is the perfect spot.

The Skibbereen Heritage Centre is a great place to start, where you can explore the history of this town and its people.

St Patrick's Cathedral is also worth a visit, and if you're feeling hungry, be sure to check out An Chistin Beag for some delicious traditional Irish food.

further afield, you can visit Barleycove is a beautiful sandy beach on the west coast of Ireland.

It's a great spot for swimming, sunbathing, and surfing.

There are also a number of interesting historical attractions nearby, including Dunlough Fort (a medieval castle) and Coosacuslaun Bay (a Bronze Age burial site).

For a traditional setting in County Cork, consider The Chocolate Box.
