Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

County Cork is located in the South West of Ireland and it is the largest of all the Irish counties and in many ways the most varied.

Rich farmlands and river valleys contrast with the wild sandstone hills of the west, and above all there is the beautiful Atlantic coastline with its great bays and secret coves, distributed with rocky headlands and long soft golden sands.

For more information about the cottage and the locality please download a copy of our own comprehensive guide to the area from our own website (see link on 'contacts' page).

“Wonderful second visit!”

Reviewed 5 Sep 2016

We stayed at Crab cottage three years ago and vowed we would come back as we loved it so much. We were not disappointed on our second visit. The cottage was as well equipped, comfortable and clean as we remembered. Luckily we had a week of really great weather, so we were able to really enjoy the outdoor areas and had many a game in the garden. We explored some new areas around Cork, but still found time to do lots of walking around the cottage and crabbing at Mill Cove (find the pier at the far side if you can), we caught 38 crabs in one 90 minute session and our small boys were absolutely ecstatic! Crab cottage has everything a family needs for a great break away in one of my favourite parts of the world, and we will be back again. In fact I really didn't want to come home!

“The perfect west Ireland retreat”

Reviewed 18 Jul 2016

Fantastic cottage for a get away from it all holiday. Very well equipped, quality soft furnishing and white goods - very much a home from home where you can relax in solitude. Very remote but enjoyed this can highly recommend to those who enjoy peace and tranquility.

“Hidden jewel in the pride of Ireland”

Reviewed 2 May 2014

Crab Cottage is my dream hideaway. Just a short drive from the village of Rosscarbery it is a stone's throw from an inlet beach but a million miles from the hustle and bustle of real life. Cottage is a little bit of a white lie - a beautifully restored and extended home with three ample bedrooms and a wonderful living room kitchen space that gave us four plenty of room. The facilities are way above what you expect and it adds a touch of luxury. West Cork is beautiful, untouched and pristine. GO!

“A wonderfull relaxing break”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2011

We stayed at Crab Cottage in September 2010. The house is perched high up overlooking an unspoilt valley with great views all around, including of the sea. Although secluded, the house is surprisingly near to the village of Rosscarbery although the roads are pretty narrow and bumpy! Inside, Crab Cottage is very clean, comfortable, well decorated and really well equipped – a welcome change from our other Ireland experiences. When deciding where to go / what to see & do, we just followed the owners’ own tips (the “Not so rough guide”) which we downloaded from their own website – really brilliant! We had a lovely week plus no rain at all! Would recommend.
