It was lovely to meet you both and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your feedback regarding the photos. In the 'Guest Interaction' section on our Airbnb page we do mention that we are adjacent to the property and photo number 20 shows the closeness of the properties. However, to follow up on your feedback I will change the order of the pictures to show the closeness more clearly. Thank you for your stay and we hope to see you again in the future.

The cottage was gorgeous and very clean. It is in a great location for walking. No taxi service meant we couldn't go out for drinks, in case that is what you are looking for. Our hosts were very helpful and lovely, and we'd definitely stay here again :)

Our stay at the cottage was great. It's surrounded by picturesque rolling hills, trees and yet is only 5 minute drive from the town of Dunmanway. The garden to the cottage is magical with beautiful flowers and a wonderful Gunnera. The cottage has everything you could want for, tv, wifi, massive bed, wonderful little wood burning stove and good bathroom. We only met Jackie but she was so warm and welcoming, it really was a pleasure to stay. Would definitely stay again and recommend it to friends. Thank you!

What a lovely stay! The experience was far and above what we expected. The cottage was spotless with lots of great personal touches. I couldn't think of anything else we needed for our stay, Liney and Jackie thought of everything. We had cosy nights in by the stove and fun days out in the locality. Dunmanway is a great location from where to explore Cork. Myrtle the cat visited too! All in all we had a wonderful time and we left feeling a little more rejuvenated :)

Liney's delightful cottage was exactly the medicine we needed and a respite from city life. It was central to all locations in west Cork and served as a beautiful place to explore from. The cottage is a treasure and I would definitely recommend it to a friend and visit again.

This cottage is in a great and secluded location and you can start hiking right from the front door. If you want a cosy cottage that is well equipped then this is where to go. We didn't get to meet Liney but we got to meet her sister, Libby, who was very welcoming and lovely to chat to. We were lucky with the weather but, even if it rained all day, you could spend the day relaxing in the cottage and unwinding in front of the fire. Thanks for having us!
