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 is a beautiful & immaculately kept home set in a stunning location. It was everything the photos promised. We really appreciated the communication from Mary, made us feel very welcome. Every facility is in place for guests, the house is perfectly set up for families and the enclosed grounds meant we could relax while our dog pottered about. Beyond the amazing views of Bantry Bay this is a great location for exploring the south west generally. The shop in Durrus will cater for most needs and Bantry is only a few minutes further if required. Definitely recommended!

The meadows is a truly magical experience, myself and my partner spent 3 nights here and it was pure bliss. If you're looking to get away from it all and relax I would recommended Mary's beautiful home. We spent our time going for hikes, having a Jacuzzi and lounging in front of the fire. The view from the main bedroom is breathtaking! Waking up to that view each morning is such a treat. Unfortunately we never met Mary but her friend Angela was on hand if we required anything and Mary was so each to contact and quick to reply. Already looking forward to staying again.

It was a very relaxing week for us. Now I have exams and I used this week to enjoy Ireland and relax. You can also do lovely walks around the area ;) The house is fully equiped and has more than basic equipment. The house is bright and open and we loved the kitchen. We loved the view over the bay, especially waking up to that view was great :) Thank you very much :)

This house is so so lovely. Spacious, clean, stunning big main bedroom. Great open plan kitchen, dining and second living room. We were a group of 8 (we also used the study as a double), and there was plenty of room for us all to potter about, and use the kitchen and living areas. Gorgeous views from lots of windows. You defo need a car to explore the wider area, and to go to any pubs/restaurants; but there are walks you can take just beside the house. I really loved this house, Mary was brilliant with all communication - and the place was spotless. Highly recommend!

You can't get much further away from it all than this - 35 minutes drive from Bantry, right out near the tip of the Sheep's Head peninsula, is this haven of peace. One of the the best-equipped kitchens we have encountered in a holiday rental. Falling asleep at night with the stars, and the lights of Castletown-Berehaven across the water. Waking up in the mornings and watching the dawn slowly light up the Beara Peninsula. The location on the listing (shown near Bantry) is incorrect, it should be: "W, but make sure you don't enter those coordinates into a GPS until after you get to Durrus or you could be subjected to 20km or so of very rural Irish roads!
