Catherine's house is in an amazing location - very isolated but beautiful. She was very helpful and easygoing, even telling us to help ourselves to some of her lovely homegrown produce. The setting is really idyllic - a place to switch off and enjoy nature. She made sure there were clean sheets on the bed and kindly gave us an extra bed so that we would have space for our daughter. Although I don't usually mind a compost toilet, this one didn't smell great! So if you are someone who cares more about cleanliness than atmosphere, or cant handle the compost toilet this may not be the place for you.

I loved the quirkiness of the house and that it is set in such a beautiful rural area with so many great walks. Catherine is a really genuine accommodating hostess and it was a pleasure to get to know her.

Great secluded place surrounded by green countryside and hills, but just a ten minute drive to Ballydehob and plenty of amazing West Cork sights nearby. Unique, remote and peaceful. The bed was very comfortable, the place was clean and warm.

Catherine's is a wild and wonderful place to stay - you'll certainly blow the cobwebs from your head! Lovely scenery and walking nearby, and handy for lots of great hikes. We loved how easy it was being in her house - we felt really at home. Thanks, Catherine, for letting us get on with our stuff, and being available for a bit of craic!

Catherine's place is situated in the countryside and she gives great directions on how to get there *just trust it!* Catherine is very friendly, open and kind. We enjoyed the overall eco-experience.

We had a great, relaxing stay at Catherine's house. She lives in a very beautiful location, ideal for exploring the Beara ring. We were welcomed into the community even though we only spent a few days there.

Catherine made me feel very welcome with her calm and gentle presence at all times. It was lovely to be invited to join in with the Monday evening meditation group which i found very inspiring. The guest bed was comfy and the sheets were clean with a pleasant homely aroma. There was plenty of hot water for a morning shower and the porridge was so tasty . Catherine's house definitely has a healing quality about it and feels so cosy especially with the log burner alight. I enjoyed my stay.

I am a relatively easy-going host (I think!). I have traveled a lot in the past, but less so recently and so now I enjoy learning about other places from people passing through. My interests are music, earth spirituality, environment, people, politics and the state of the world in general.
I like healthy, mostly organic food. Breakfast is a self-service affair, unless you want to join me for porridge. Generally the options are muesli, toast, eggs, tea, coffee and juice. If you enjoy cooking and want to make something more exotic, please let me know and I will get the ingredients. Also, I don't drink milk, so if you need it, please let me know in advance.
