We arrived at the property at about 8PM on October 14th. We thought that the key was hanging by the back door as that is part of the information sent to us. Or we could call Rosarie, the housekeeper, for help getting in. There was no key and Rosarie didn’t answer either phone number. We called 4 times. It is a remote location and was the proverbial dark & stormy night and we couldn’t find our way back out to the nearest town until morning. We slept in our car. In the morning we made our way to town and I received a message from my husband, here in the US, that the key was in a different location. We went back to the house and got in only to find that the electricity mostly wasn’t working. The overhead lights came on but nothing that plugged in worked. So, no refrigerator, washer/dryer, TV, charging ability or WiFi or electric heater. We called the housekeeper again, this time she answered, we explained the situation, she arrived about an hour later and reset a breaker but it wouldn’t stay reset. She messed with it and it seemed to be on. My sister was quite cold and went to bed. A few minutes after the housekeeper left the breaker went out again. I wanted to leave as I didn’t feel safe but by the time the housekeeper had arrived and gotten things to look like it was working it was getting later in the day and my sister was afraid of getting lost again so we stayed the night in the house. I reset & reset the breaker until I was able to email the owner that we were leaving in the morning. Also the water started out clear but then turned brown - it wouldn’t clear up. I did let it run awhile.

If that sounds like your idea of a good time - go for it.

The owners did refund our money.

Resposta do proprietário: To set the record straight, my instructions for arrival, have never said that there is a key hanging outside the back door. That would be foolish of me, certainly. My instructions have always said, “When you arrive in Ireland, please call the housekeeper for access instructions.” These travelers did not think to call her during the day, they waited until 10pm. She had fallen asleep waiting for the call. She picked up the message and couldn’t decipher it. The woman spoke too fast as her phone was running out of batteries. My housekeeper called me and I then tried to call the # left. It was the wrong #. I called the contact # provided to Homeaway, and that was an answering machine at a business in California. Not helpful contact info! I left messages there, on their email, and on the Homeaway app. Our cottage is very clearly mapped out on the Homeaway site. My instructions to all renters include info about heating the cottage. Clearly stating that peat briquettes must be purchased. I do not charge for heat or electrics. The house heats up fine and maintains that warm mass, once the stoves are going. This is a hands on, traditional Irish cottage. The electrician was called. They never gave him a chance to show up. He did get to the bottom of it, it was the electric heater, being turned on full blast and tripping the fuse box. This can happen to anyone, in any house. As to the water. There had been a lot of heavy rain the week before. This stirs up the peat in our well. It always runs clear after maybe 10 mins. We have had it tested, and it is fine. The neighbors there love our water and comment on it. It tastes wonderful. One can always purchase water at the store. I feel that this traveler did not read my instructions very carefully nor choose a cottage and location that suited their abilities and interest. They did not treat my housekeeper kindly. One should always come to a new country with a sense of humor, wonder, and patience. We continue to feel lucky and blessed by our experiences in Ireland and the wonderful people we have come to know there.

Remote idyllic location in a quaint and well appointed cottage

  • 5 de 5

We felt at home immediately in the cottage. Between the beautiful paintings and simple but well thought out accommodation we had everything we needed. The first night we turned on the TV but found out it did not work and we were fine with that. Instead we turned to the books that the owners have in a bookshelf upstairs. We positioned 2 wingback chairs (with lovely pattern and colored covers) in front of a window in the living area and looked out at the sea and read books. The wireless worked well and we stayed connected throughout the stay.

The area of the cottage is remote yet glorious. If you want to go to pubs and be in a town setting this is not the location for you. If you want a vacation with plenty of natural beauty, cozy and homey environment, peace and quiet then this is highly recommended. After a short period we were able to light the Stanley and keep it going well. I so miss the smell of the peat fire and the warmth of the heat going through the house radiators. Susan states in the cottage information binder that she uses the briquets. Briquets come in logs that are lashed together with green binding and can be bought at most small grocery stores in area towns. You can buy a bag of kindling wood to start the fire and for 2-3 Euro you can purchase a small box of fire starters which you only need a small piece of to help start the fire. We kept a fire going at a "simmer" stage one

grey and overcast day so we could have a meal simmering in the cast iron dutch oven on the top of the Stanley. For us, using the Stanley gave us a unique, sense of place experience. We felt Irish, not just because we have Irish blood but because this is how the Irish live. Yes you could have central heating in the cottage which the owners may add someday but right now the cottage can be cozy with 50 degree fahrenheit, driving rain and wind outside. The inside of the house is simple but elegant with wonderful splashes of color and texture. The gardens and birds outside are delightful, one morning we took photos of a visiting hare outside in the garden.

You can take walks from the cottage and we highly recommend going to Dursey Island and crossing with the cable car. We also recommend when you do this to walk out but the road and return by the path vs the opposite. We had lots of rain this September with cool and damp temps. This did not keep us back and when it rained all day we decided to go to Midleton and tour the Jameson distillery.

Beautiful place but some inconveniences

  • 3 de 5

We spent two weeks at Dove Hollow Cottage, mostly enjoyable mainly due to the character and location of the house, which is indeed quite special on the Beara Peninsula, as praised in many other reviews. However we also found some shortcomings, for which reason we would choose another accomodation on a future visit to this region: due to modest inside temperatures the house obviously generally needs heating in the evenings, even in high summer (we were there in August). As may not be evident from the object description on this website: There is no modern central heating in place. Instead you need to fire up an old kitchen stove with wood or peat to get some general warmth into the house. At first we found this romantic, after some days a little inconvenient, because you also need to clean the stove every day. The burning material is not provided for by the landlords, meaning you have to obtain this on your own (you can buy it at two groceries stores in the next village). Another downside to us, was that the location of the house is a little far off and there are no facilities whatsoever nearby. To go to the next village by car took us about twenty minutes, to got to the next little town took about forty minutes (driving carefully, which we recommend in Ireland due to mostly narrow and winding roads). As a consequence it is for example not possible to have drinks at the village pub and then just do a small walk home. So you are more or less confined to intensive car usage when you want to enjoy gastronomy in the area and social life in pubs. But if you mainly want your quiet and be close to nature and don't mind a litte inconvenience on the technical side, we can recommend Dove Hollow Cottage for its outstanding location, its solitude and the beautiful natural surroundings in sight from every window of the house. Finally a clarification has to be made to the object description on the amenities section: while there is a TV-apparatus in the house to watch DVDs, the TV is actually not receiving TV-programmes, so there is no regular TV-reception. A free-of-additional-charge wifi however is present, which we found quite convenient for checks on the internet.

Gîte superbe. Équipement complet. Cadre fantastique. Pour les personnes cherchant le calme, je recommande cette location, car les voisins proches sont les vaches et les moutons !!

Parallèlement, j'avoue que j'aurai dû choisir une location plus proche des résidents locaux car nous n'avons pas eu de rapport avec les irlandais et je le regrette un peu car, pour une première visite en Irlande, j'aurai aimé découvrir leur façon de vivre et être conseillée sur ce qu'il fallait ou ne fallait pas faire, mais c'est une erreur de ma part en voulant trouver une location au calme !!

Sinon, la propriétaire réponds rapidement aux demandes et le gîte est vraiment superbe, je recommande donc cette location.

Beautiful Cottage on the Kenmare River

  • 4 de 5

We enjoyed our stay at this remote cottage on the Beara Peninsula. The view from the cottage was spectacular. The area, in our opinion, is the most beautiful scenery in Ireland. We made daily road trips exploring all three peninsulas in the Southwest region. If you have physical issues, the stairway upstairs is a small challenge. Make sure you ask Rosaria, the housekeeper, how to operate the hot water for the shower. The only issue we had was how remote the cottage was. Day trips to the Dingle Peninsula, Ring of Kerry and Cork is doable. We decided to leave a few days early and drive to Ennis and found a motel to have a more central location to see the Cliffs of Moher and the West Coast scenery. The directions to the cottage could be more clearly defined.

Breathtaking Cottage Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean

  • 5 de 5

A few things come to mind as we are driving in. Where are we headed, why are there so few houses are we on the right road? All of a sudden, we arrive at the Stone Cottage and immediately our collective breath is taken away. What a spectacular view, what an amazing cottage, what a relaxing patio that overlooks the wild Atlantic. I’m glad we arrived when it was daylight to take in the absolute beauty of the Beara peninsula. After spending several awestruck minutes looking out from the patio we entered the cottage and even though the pictures on the website are great it does not prepare one for the warmth and charm of this amazing place. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped with a dining table that you will need to draw straws for to see who will have the seat with the view of the ocean. There is a completely modern and functional bathroom on the first floor and a very cozy living room as well with another great view of the ocean. Upstairs are two cozy bedrooms, the master which has a view of the ocean from a skylight in the gently sloping roof of the cottage. We spent most of our days touring the ring of Beara and other parts of county Cork (make sure you drive around the Ring of Beara as the views are spectacular). However the best part of our day was coming back to our cozy cottage by the sea where we would make dinner and then sit outside on the patio overlooking the ocean. We both felt so at peace here and understand why Sue loves this place so much. As the week came to a close it was really difficult to say goodbye to the Stone Cottage but we had an amazing and very memorable trip that will stay in our hearts and minds for a long time or at least until we get the chance to come back. Finally Sue has done a great job with the owner’s manual so look there if you have any questions. She was really helpful before we left and answered a number of questions we had about the cottage and things to do in the area including visiting a great pub called Teddy O’Sullivans where we met some of Sue’s friends who could not have been nicer. I’m sure there is more to say, but I will close by telling you to take a chance on this amazing cottage for your next vacation, a place you will never forget and one you will likely long to return to again and again.
