“A blissful rural escape”
Reviewed 3 May 2012 for a stay in March 2012
person found this review helpful

We flew into Cork and hired a car travelling out on to the peninsula SW of Cork. We were very impressed with this spacious property. The house is one of only a few houses at Toe Head with an uninterrupted view of the sea which gave us several fab sunsets and it has a very large garden. It is very quiet and peaceful and not too far to Castletownshend and Skibbereen where you can stock up on food and other essentials or find places to eat and buy souvenirs. It is well equipped and even has a dishwasher so no washing up after dinner. My partner, who is a keen fisherman managed to catch mackerel and pollock off the rocks at Toe Head which we barbequed - delicious. We also loved the organic country market in the town of Schull which is on every Sunday. Great if you love country walks, running, self-catering, pretty local beaches and seclusion. All in all a very relaxing stay!
