  • "We all had a lovely time in Corr an Droma and would happily stay there for ever!"

    The views are to die for, the house itself is remote enough to be interesting but close enough to two centres of 'life' to be comfortable. There were good places to eat and to shop - and Bantry and Skibbereen are close if you really have a yen to see a supermarket! Cork the nearest bit city is a drive away - but only an hour or so if one was in the mood for crowds and city life. In short, we all loved it - aged from 78 to 11 - and would all happily return tomorrow - if work and school did not make it impossible! I highly recommend the place - it is lovely - but don't expect luxury - luxury is not part of the rural idyll and if you want it, then go stay in an hotel!

  • "We loved our stay in Corr An Droma, the cottage is really cosy and welcoming."

    Micheal is a great host and available to answer any queries should you have any. Beds are very comfortable and the kitchen has everything you need. However the views are spectacular, it is such a stunning location, you can see the Fastnet Lighthouse and Cape Clear and Sherkin Islands. Schull Harbour you can get the Ferry out to the Fastnet lighthouse and Cape Clear, we highly recommend you should do the trip if you get the opportunity. Corr An Droma is a wonderful cottage, and we will definitely return. Stunning location!

  • "Michael and Sheila are great hosts."

    The house is equipped with all mod cons and comfortable beds. The cottage is very secluded and surrounded by beautiful walking trails, one of which takes you down to a lovely pier. It is also well situated to enjoy all the shops, pubs and restaurants on offer in both Schull and Ballydehob. There is also a nice deck to take in the stunning sea views. For a quiet retreat away from it all, this is the place.

  • "Had a lovely stay here last week 10-18 Sept 2022 with my dogs and mum."

    A tranquil spot and the cottage is gorgeous. We had a bit of trouble finding it as Google maps sent us on a circuit close by several times and in the end we checked with owner. Cottage was v clean, comfortable and well stocked. Would have liked instructions left regarding tv, internet and cooker and downstairs shower was too hot to use. Reported to owner who popped by a couple of times for a nice chat. We loved the clear views and the cows coming by to say hi. Blessed with the weather and found it easy to access lots of West Cork sights from here. Loved using the patio with a glass of wine in eves whilst cooking dinner. An ideal base for a family or group of friends or for folk wanting a restful, peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle. Hosts Shiela and Michael were very helpful as was the lovely housekeeper. We really enjoyed our stay fully.

  • "Corr an Droma has potential to offer an excellent holiday, being in a beautiful location."

    However the cottage is not represented by the photos on the website, which are presumably some years old. The cottage is in a state of disrepair and appears to have been neglected as regards maintenance and cleanliness. There were broken fittings (e.g. radiator, shower tap, shower door, lamp, bin etc.), bare ceiling light bulbs, no TV signal, no WiFi code in evidence, no basin in kitchen, no rail in one wardrobe, loose ungrouted tiles in shower tray etc. etc. The standard of hygiene was very poor, and the only tea towel supplied was dirty along with very dirty looking sponges and wash up brushes and dust on floors and other surfaces. There were also a lot of corners, shelves etc. that had miscellaneous items seemingly not seen by whoever cleans the property. The solid fuel stove had used teabags and partly burned plastic wrappers in it. This is by no means a comprehensive list....but suffice it to say a very disappointing holiday, made worse by the non-appearance of the cottage owner, who we rang shortly after our arrival and who said he'd meet us the following day...we heard nothing from him after our initial phonecall and left a voicemail the following day and had no subsequent response!

  • "Lovely location, nice hosts, friendly neighbours."

    Although the house was comfortable, we found the furniture and fittings wanting. I mentioned to the hostess, that the upstairs beds were in need of new mattresses. The house has the potential to be top-notch, but is badly is need of regular and competent TLC. If the necessary improvements were made, we would have no difficulty recommending this house to others. A return visit is, however, not in the planning.

  • "The cottage was unbelievably wonderful in every aspect."

    The large open plan kitchen/living room was great, facilities in the kitchen were excellent. The views, which the web site images do not show how good they are were out of this world. Looking across Roaring Water Bay over to several islands including Castle Island and Clear Island over towards Baltimore and of course the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse (flashing away at night) will never be forgotten. Really easy distances to several wonderfully coloured towns of wgich Schull was one of the best. If Michelin starts were ever given for holiday accommodations, this would certainly have one!

A lovely detached property with breathtaking views across to the Atlantic Ocean, located close to the village of Schull in County Cork.

Situated at the end of a quiet country lane, this Schull cottage is the perfect choice for a tranquil holiday surrounded by serene countryside and some truly stunning views.

This Schull cottage has three bedrooms including a ground floor double complete with an en-suite.

Furnished in a characteristic and homely style, this Schull cottage has a welcoming open plan living area with a multi-fuel stove as well as an additional sitting room with a sofa bed.

The elevated position makes the most of uninterrupted and panoramic views of the ocean and islands that dot the coastline in this unspoilt landscape.
