Poor mobile phone coverage is definitely the price one pays for living on the Bandon River estuary which is why Tearmann has an active landline! That said there are hot spots where you can get service (outside back and front doors, on balconies etc)
Might be good idea for those planning to visit this year to download Viber.
We refer to Tearmann on this site as not being suitable for children. We love having them but stress vigilance... stone steps, rivers and toddlers make us fainthearted!
Many thanks for a beautiful review, delighted that you enjoyed it.
