"Simply magnificent! Filled with warmth and friendliness both lodge and landlord's"

Oh what a stunning lodge inside and out...filled with the power of nature. Easy access to the wonderful surrounding tourist attractions. Yet in the quiet of country side you a simple phonecall away from your surroundings by calling the great cab services. Jean-Luke and Ina amazingly friendly and helpful. The lodge is layed out simple yet beautiful and have the warm homely feeling to it. You can eat out or simply cook away in the lodge. Whatever your holiday fancy the Blue school house allows for it all.

"Everything you could need for a relaxing vacation!"

We have very happy memories of our stay at the Blue School Studio in Clonakilty. I stayed there with my husband and 18 month old son for a week. It was a perfect location for day trips. The owners had thought of everything we could've needed. The studio is beautiful, clean and well organized and the kitchen is perfectly equipped. If we hadn't taken day trips every day, we would've been happy just hanging out in the studio. We would love to visit again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

"Lovely studio in beautiful Cork countryside"

Very close to Clonakilty and Rosscarbery in Cork. The food in the area was amazing. great fish and chips at Fishy Fishy cafe Kinsale (recommended by our hosts), market at Schull was great. Lovely countryside. Easy drive to Cork, Kinsale, Ring of Kerry. We really enjoyed a day trip to Dingle. (also very good fish and chips) We found the back lanes really interesting too and managed not to get too lost (a sat nav was very helpful).. The studio is very close to where Michael Collins was born. Nicely appointed and very comfortable. The surrounding countryside is lovely in all directions. There is a small stone circle near Rosscarbery which you get to through a paddock. Glandore and Unionhall are well worth looking at. Absolutely picturesque. We enjoyed the food at the Lettercollum Kitchen Project shop in Clonakilty where we were given lots of great touring ideas from the people in the shop, both behind the counter and in the queue. Finding the studio at night was difficult, but would be much easier with sat nav location.

"Perfect for two"

We stayed at The Blue School's studio cottage during September 2012 and we will certainly be back. The cottage is situated just outside Clonakilty and was in the ideal location for us; a quiet retreat away from the bustle of the centre but close enough to visit the town daily just to explore or pick up supplies. The apartment is furnished in a rustic style giving it a cosy, homely feel. The cottage was perfect for two and very well equipped, the owners had thought of everything. We wanted a place where we could cook proper meals and found the house had everything we needed to do this (often holiday rentals don’t!). The cottage was clean, warm and private but it was nice to know that Ina and Jean Luc were just next door should we need them. Clonakilty is a faultless holiday location with the most beautiful beaches, endless possibilities for walking and outdoor activities not to mention plenty of lovely pubs (many with live music) and restaurants to choose from at the end of the day. We loved the house and the location...can’t wait to return!
