“A home away from home in beautiful West Cork with room for disabled equipment”
Reviewed 25 October 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We really enjoyed our holiday, in The Haggart. This year was our 3rd visit and we’ll definitely be back again. Our hosts were very welcoming, friendly and helpful in every way. The environment was quiet, relaxing and homely. The cottage was clean, comfortable and spacious, with plenty of room to manoeuvre the wheelchair and a hoist. It is an ideal location for exploring beautiful West Cork.

“Peaceful, beautiful cottage”
Reviewed 18 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is a great find. Part of small group of holiday homes converted from old farm buildings (this being a newly constructed cottage) on a working farm just a mile from the town of Skibbereen.

The owners Mary and Aidan are very friendly and helpful. The cottage itself is very spacious and spotless, provided with everything you need for a self catering trip.

Skibbereen is a great base to explore West Cork and beyond - Tragumna beach only 10 minutes drive away and plenty of other beaches further afield - we would recommend Barleycove Beach near Mizen Head about 45 mins away, probably one of the most beautiful beaches in Ireland that I've seen. Plenty of bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets in Skibbereen itself.

Thanks Mary and Aidan for a great stay!

“Peaceful and Idyllic”
Reviewed 7 July 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We really enjoyed our stay. The haggart is lovely, a very high standard of accommodation and excellent value. It has fantastic views and is situated in a lovely location but still no distance from Skibbereen and surrounding areas. Convenient base for a relaxing and quiet holiday. We felt very welcome. I was sad to leave such a lovely place.
