  • "Great rural property ideally suited to visiting county Cork."

    All the facilities needed to use as a base. Bernadette was absolutely lovely and very welcoming and will definitely stay again when visiting Cork. Place was really clean on arrival, beds comfortable, bathrooms clean with great showers and plenty of hot water. Heating excellent after a long day out and about. Plus plenty of parking. Lastly easy to find if you use the Eire code provided as it is really rural. Thank you very much Bernadette

  • "Comfortable cottage in a beautiful location."

    The owner was very friendly too. Covid restrictions meant if our party were all double jabbed we didn’t need to swab or isolate which was a massive positive. Traveller locator form was the only other documentation we required. I would highly recommend a visit. Ireland is stunning and the people so friendly.

    The cottage was very comfortable and spacious. Lovely sandy beaches within a couple of minutes drive. Beehive Cottage was the perfect location to explore Cork including a trip to Fota Wildlife Park, Kinsale and Spike Island. Also the surf lessons on Inchydoney Beach are highly recommended. We will definitely be back to stay at Beehive Cottage again.

  • "This was a perfect holiday and would highly recommend this accommodation."

    Beehive cottage is perfectly situated in beautiful countryside and coastline - and the cottage itself is fully equipped, very warm and cosy, and clean throughout. Bernadette is a lovely and welcoming host and makes you feel at home. There is lots to see and do nearby, and if the weather isn’t great the cottage has plenty of space to relax in. An excellent location and a perfect place to stay add up to a great holiday at Beehive cottage - thank you!

    Bernie Fielding made us most welcome and was so helpful in giving us information about places to see. She was on hand if we needed anything. The cottage is also very near to Cork City which is both lively and stylish in equal measures.

  • "Great welcome by the owner, really clean large house."

    Excellent facilities. Gorgeous rose garden, large bedrooms, lots of storage Located very near to Ballinspittle and 15 minute drive from Kinsale. Large TV, comfortable clean beds, perfect for families. We had older kids but there was everything a family with young children would need. Fresh flowers and packet of biscuits laid out. The owners respected our privacy but were there when we forgot a key. Perfect hostess. Good value for money

  • "Although a little way from the nearest facilities it was lovely and quiet yet a great base for a holiday on the Cork coast."

    The facilities were fine and there was everything we needed for our stay. The house is very spacious and the gardens are lovely - although we did not sit out in the seating area as we were out and about so much. The sheepdog and his herd of cats was a lovely welcoming committee when we got back from a day touring. One suggestion we have is to provide an information pack explaining where everything is (e.g. local shops and facilities such as supermarkets etc.) and how everything works e.g.. the heating system and recycling / rubbish disposal- we worked them out (the smart TV was the biggest challenge) but written information would have helped. We would certainly recommend this cottage as it was comfortable and great value for money.

  • "This was a fantastic clean and spacious holiday cottage."

    It is in a beautifully unspoilt area with beaches about a 5 minute drive away and lovely towns within easy reach to explore and shop. Further afield are whale and dolphin searching trips. The only downside is the listing says that power is included in rent. This isn't the case. There was some money in the meter at arrival but we needed to top up with 2 euro coins at least once a day. Not too much of a problem and wouldn't stop us from renting again but needs to be known.
