“A little bit of heaven in Durrus”

I have been holidaying in Durrus for 46 years and have stayed in many properties up and down the bay but this has been one of my favourites. I live in a small modern house in Dublin so It was lovely to stay in a house that had such character. If I could own a property in Durrus this would be at the top of my list.

The gardens are fabulous and when you were sitting in the enclosed garden you could be anywhere. I used to say I was going back to my Italian garden..

I was really surprised that the house was so close to the village (never rented in the village before) but we felt as if we were in our own little world.

Emer - who is the caretaker was so welcoming and helpful.

I want this one next year.

“Old cottage in great location with some slightly eccentric features”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Great base for visiting the wonderful Sheep's Head and Mizen peninsulas on a quite road a stones throw from the centre of the charming Durrus village

“Magical!”

My partner and I stayed in Millrace with three children aged from 13 to 5 and all of us loved the cottage from the moment we arrived. It was bigger than we expected inside, and the books, curios, wonderful weeping willow tree out front and large private courtyard out back all added to the sense of magic. The large gas oven took a little getting used to, but having a helpful local contact on hand to help show us the ropes meant we got the hang of it easily enough.

The cottage was much closer to Durrus than expected - literally a two minute stroll to a wonderful cafe (handy for brunch) and several pubs with great food for when we'd spent a hard day exploring or lounging on the beach. Yet it was quiet all the same, apart from the sound of the rushing stream nearby. Durrus is a relatively sleepy little village most of the time.

Millrace Cottage is a perfect base to explore the Sheep's Head, Mizen Head and Beara peninsulas - where crafts, beaches and wonderful food are in ample supply. The heatwave we were fortunate enough to have during our stay only added to the enjoyment.
