West Cork is such a magical place to visit and I was so looking forward to spending a week in Schull. I wasn’t disappointed. There was a beautiful sea/harbour view from one side of the house and a glimpse of the lovely Mount Gabriel on the other side - you could not have asked for a more beautiful location. I travelled up from Cork city on the bus with my elderly father and we were lucky enough to enjoy a beautiful sunny week. To wake up and have breakfast sitting outside looking at the sea was a perfect start every day. The house was very comfortable with lots of interesting artistic touches to catch your attention. We had everything we needed for self-catering and Schull has a number of shops and places to eat and drink and some interesting craft shops to browse in – all within walking distance. There was always something different to do or see every day – sailing, walking, secret swimming areas, visits to the Planetarium, ruins of an old church and a standing stone to visit. You could always take the ferry to Cape Clear or just sit and relax with a glass of wine and a good book. Overall it was a lovely relaxing experience. Thank you for sharing your lovely house.
this is a lovely house in a really beautiful location, its about 5 yards from the water and has amazing harbour views, we were very lucky with the weather which made the place seem unbeatable. its about a 5 minute walk into the small town of Schull which has a few nice pubs and a couple of OK restaurants. the house itself is really well kited out and has everything you need for self catering, internet works fine, all good. we were 2 families, 4 adults and 2 kids, and the house was spacious enough for us all,
Located in a peaceful setting overlooking the sea. It felt like a home rather than a rental property. We loved that it was close to the village but very private. We had a very happy stay.
We had 11 Coastguard booked for 4 nights for our annual fishing trip and the accommodation was perfect , the location is especially superb. Everything we needed was on hand and Mary was very helpful.
Coastguard Cottages is just a great centre for a holiday in or around Schull. This is the second time we have stayed in this exact house - so speak for itself. Lovely place, great views, beautiful area. What more can you ask for? I'd recommend it to all. We'll be booking again next year!
