"Amazing Location and even better host"

Amazing place, spotless with all mod cons. Loved the open fire, the table tennis and pool. The host was a great source of local information and was super helpful. Best holiday rental i've been in. Thanks Esther

"This apartment has everything you might need during your stay."

Could not find fault with anything. It's a superb place to stay with lots of little extras e.g. spare t-lights, coal & kindling for the lovely open fire, washing up liquid, dish washer tablets etc & even a beautifully decorated Christmas tree to greet us on our arrival :- )

"Difficult to fault, an excellent country location for exploring West cork"

Having spent a week here back in the summer and being an expert on accommodation of all types within the area, when I needed a place to call home for a couple of months, there was no other option but to make myself comfortable here. Esther is a very generous lady who has equipped this wing of her house to a very high standard and rather than making it like a usual holiday home, Red Dog is much more like staying in someone's immaculately clean and comfortable home. My Parsons Russell stayed too and we spent glorious hours on the close by beach and at the snug and friendly local pub.
I don't normally review the really good places as I want to be able to use them again without finding them booked full, in this instance I have just built a house in this extremely beautiful part of Ireland and thus am happy to recommend most highly this accommodation and am sure that all visitors will be more than happy with their stay.

It was such a pleasure to have you here and I am very pleased that on both your visits you enjoyed the space so much.
