Irish Independent article:

Sheep’s Head
We’re pretty confident that West Cork is not only one of the most impressive destinations in Ireland but in Europe and the Sheep’s Head Peninsula offers a stunning drive to take in the sights between Bantry Bay and Dunmanus Bay. Leaving and finishing in Bantry, out the road to Durrus and the road to Kilcrohane allows you to take in the hairpin bends around craggy outcrops of rock and to the sea with some sunning sheer cliffs. You can stop the car and follow the Sheep’s Head Way by foot along 89 km of trail with a low difficulty rating and some unforgettable scenery.

The Wild Atlantic Way is the world's longest defined coastal touring route. It's inspiring, renewing, relaxing and invigorating. It's yours to experience however you choose.

This place was so beautiful it inspired me to write a poem - (when I woke up the first morning, the rainbow was amazing) Thank you for sharing the Meadows Family walks, our cherished times Truly an Irish blessing I pray others, may one day find Dearly loved the Stunning vista just above The deep blue sea My first morning awakened To a rainbow, just in front of me "The Meadows" offers one a pot of gold And of course a cuppa of tea .... Bring your soul, your heart, your mind And rest your time here, with Thee.

Thank you so much Sandra - I think it is absolutely amazing that you found the place so inspiring you wrote a poem! And, what a lovely poem. I am so happy and thrilled with that. Would it be ok with you if I had it printed and framed and put your name on the bottom - and put it up in The Meadows for other guests to see? It is a wonderful thing to have. So delighted you enjoyed The Meadows so much Sandra - hopefully we will see you back again some day! Kindest regards Mary

Absolutely gorgeous location, and Mary's house is beautiful,designed to capture the wonderful views offered across Bantry bay. Make sure to spend at least one day at the house to enjoy the house and views, and capture some amazing sunsets. We spent a week with family from the U.K., explored the sheep's head peninsula and beyond. The weather was glorious, allowing us to swim almost every day. Recommend doing at least one of the longer walks on the sheep's head to fully understand the beauty of the area. In the locality for food I'd recommend food in Akhista, but make sure to reserve a table. We'll be back!!!

The house is luxurious. Make sure to read the guidebook for the house. Important to know that it is 20drive from Bantry so you definitely need a car. Also, it's important to drive slowly as the roads are narrow! The people are really friendly. It would be difficult to find another place that would surpass the fresh air and ambience of this place.

I really loved staying at Mary's place! I've been travelling all over Ireland for the past two and a half months and stayed at 9 other places and Mary's is by far my favourite house! It's very welcoming and charming. It's very clean and tidy with all the ammendties. And the view is spectacular! There are walks you can go on. We took the Poets Way one day and it was lovely! There a a couple of towns near by, about 15 minutes away, where you can by some groceries. Big thumbs up! Alice

Wow! Mary's place is even better than the pictures! We booked for a family birthday / reunion and it was perfect. The house is really well equipment with kitchen utensils and lots of books / TV / wifi / dishwasher / washing machine. The views just make this place and we spent a lot of time relaxing at the house because it was lovely. The location is pretty remote but you can easily get to places if you have a car. Mary's communication was great before and during our stay. I can highly recommend staying here whilst in this beautiful corner of the world. Thank you Mary :)

The Meadows is a fantastic place. We stayed there with five adults and a baby and had a wonderful time there. The house is really big, so that everyone has enough space for himself. The rooms were very clean and furnished with love. We liked the open ground floor and loved the kitchen, which is fully equiped and has more than the basic things you need. The view from the house over the landscape is breathtaking and such a great start into the day. We enjoyed every day there and recommend Mary´s house to everyone who is looking for a quiet and peaceful place to discover the south of Ireland. There are lots of trails and lops (sheaps head) for hikers and those who wants to get an impression of the surrounding. We never met Mary, but she was very anxious to our well-being and gave us lots of information about how to reach the house, which was very helpful. Her friend Angela came over to look if we everything is okay or if we need something and gave us some recommendations to do in the area (Bantry, lighthouse). So everything was perfect!
