  • "We had a short but wonderful stay in Raheen."

    Very clean, comfortable, plenty of room, nice views. Everything you need is present and even more. Our host, Jane-Ann is lovely and very generous and hospitable. She made us a lot of food because we arrived later in the evening with a good bottle of wine. The neighborhood is quiet, very nice with lovely villages around. We Dutch hated the small Irish roads and fast drivers but that's how it is. In summary a place that we very much can recommondate.

  • "A clean, comfortable and well equiped bungalow well situated for visiting West Cork with plenty to do and see in the area and not too further afield."

    Our host was very friendly and welcoming with sandwiches and cake on our arrival with goodies in the fridge too. The property has an open fire and with plenty of blocks available it was very cosy in the evenings. I would highly recommend this accommodation for your holiday.

  • "Our hostess was really amazing."

    We were provided with a meal in the oven when we arrived after a long journey, and two others in the freezer and also a food and drinks hamper which exceeded all our expectations. There was also a fire burning. Throughout our stay she was unobtrusively supportive and also left scones and cake on 4 occassions for us. Amazing hospitality which made our stay very memorable.

  • "We had a very comfortable stay here."

    The welcome from Jane Anne was second to none. A beautiful fire burning in the grate, beautiful sandwiches in the fridge also scones, wine, beer, and lots of goodies. Jane Anne went over and above even giving us a goodie bag to bring home as we didn't have time to have tea and scones with her before we left. We would definitely recommend this holiday cottage

  • "Etant une PMR j'avais demandé la hauteur du seuil de la porte principale et celle de la véranda, on m'a dit 3 à 5 cm et en fair c"était 15 et 18 cm, ce qui m'a occasionné quelques soucis."

    En dehors de cela cette location est parfaite, magnifique véranda au toit en bois cheminée très bien aussi. La propriétaire est très chaleureuse et fournit un pack de bienvenue généreux avec un plus : une assiette de mini sandwichs au jambon, très agréable attention après la route. Beaucoup de petites villes à proximité et les péninsules et si c'est pour la période d'Halloween, ne manquez pas le village de Peal très joliment décoré pour cette fête. Je recommende vivement cette location.

  • "The welcome was really outstanding."

    There was a full tea on the table which included sandwiches, scones and cake and there was a bottle of wine in the fridge in addition to milk and butter. Jane Anne was very attentive and very welcoming. The conservatory was very comfortable and from the windows there was a full panorama of sloping fields in which lived 90 cows. The view was amazing and kept us fascinated for a week with the daily routine of the cows and the farm opposite. We loved the cottage and the area and had a full week doing the "Wild Atlantic Way" from Glengarriff to Tramore... This completed our mission to do the whole route from north to south over four weeks in four years. If we were to return anywhere it would be to Raheen.
