"Peaceful & Spacious, With Amazing Views....."

We stayed at Orchard Cottage with extended family. It is an amazingly spacious house, which gave plenty of room for the kids to play, without it feeling too busy. It is off the main road, which provided that extra bit of security, and peacefulness. The local pub is only a short walk, and the shop and hotel a few minutes drive away.

The cottage had a dvd player with a selection of dvd's, and also plenty of books to read. Also a selection of bikes for the kids. The owner Des was very welcoming, and attended to any requests immediately.

I would recommend if travelling with any small children to bring a stair gate, as the stairs are slightly steep with bare wood, also to remember to bring cot linen and blankets. Also pack some baby / toddler plastic feeding utensils etc, There is a high chair provided.

We brought a badminton net, and had lots of fun on the lawn playing with the kids. The grass was cut during our stay, so was lovely to play on. We were sorry we didnt pack a kiddies paddleing pool, this too would have been great fun for the kids. There is a lovely private green area to play these games, which is in view of the kitchen / living area, and is securely tucked away from the road.

The beach is lovely with a little cafe, with complementary wifi, and a local market on Sundays in the cafe area.

I could go on and on about the surrounding areas, which are all worth a visit. The fishing village of Portmagee, Valentia Island and Waterville to name a few. Orchard Cottage is perfect for families, you would definitely need a car, but we found we spent alot of time at the Cottage anyhow !!

We had a wonderful stay in Ballinskelligs, and look forward to returning again in the future.
