The Stables

Superb
Really nice house in lovely setting. Upstairs sitting room is spacious and bright. Really well maintained property which is spotlessly clean. Has everything you could require including cooker, microwave, washing machine and dryer. Owners are really nice and helpful also. Highly recommend staying here.

Wonderful!
We really enjoyed staying at Abbey Farm Holiday Home. Our vacation rental was called The Stable. It was very nice. It was perfect for us. We were visiting family in the Skibbereen area for several days. The Stable gave us plenty of space to relax, fix our breakfast in the full kitchen, watch television or read in the living room. We were able to do laundry, which worked out perfect since our stay fell during the middle of our trip. Our rental was very clean, comfortable and the owners were very friendly and accommodating. We cannot wait to come back to Ireland and when we do we will definitely stay at Abbey Farm Holiday. Thank you again Mary!

Perfect Family Holiday House
So close to Skibbereen town centre, really accessible to main roads for exploring the area. Mary and Aidan are amazing hosts and really have such a great way with their guests. The Stable was perfectly equipped for our family needs and was an ideal home from home for our young children. Will be recommending to family and friends and I'm sure we will be back for another visit!

Peaceful, well equipped upside down house
Wonderful location in the south west of Ireland. Great accommodation in this upside down house which adds greatly to its appeal. The living space is upstairs so very easy to look out over the countryside. Both Mary and Aidan made us very welcome and also gave us many tips on where else we should go to benefit our stay in this peaceful area. Thank you.

Ideal for families
This was our third stay at abbey farm. Each time is better than the last. Our 4 and 6 year old love visiting the animals and feeding the new calves. Accomodation is spacious, in perfect order and its just really relaxing. Close to loads of lovely tourist spots. Mary and aidan are the best of hosts. Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Almost perfect
Abbey Farm is the ideal mix of country and town--it's a working dairy farm but only minutes from Skibbereen. The hosts are friendly and helpful, and willing to answer questions. The place was spotlessly clean, and comfortably equipped. I need to add that anyone planning to stay here must like cows--it's an active dairy operation, which I found fascinating but which might not be to everyone's taste. I had only one mild criticism: the kitchen is not fully stocked. I think the addition of a few staples would help anyone who is arriving from a distance and hasn't had time to shop for supplies. A few other items like a teapot and some mugs would be nice as well. But overall I enjoyed my stay. I could envision an extended family booking the adjoining rental units, which would accommodate a large number.

Sheila, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and it was lovely meeting and talking with you. I hope your house furnishing for your new home went well. There are mugs and a china tea set supplied in the kitchen and usually a teapot as well. I will check the teapot as it may have been broken and not replaced. Hope to see you back in Skibbereen again.
