We had a wonderful stay at Hillside Cottage. It was cozy and comortable, and perfect for the three of us (myself, my sister and my niece). We checked out all the pubs and bar food in Ballycotton during our two weeks there and found every one of them to be excellent. The cliff walk was spectacular, and not to be missed. Also be sure to go visit the Lifeboat Shop. At the end of the day we loved going "home" to a cup of tea made in our own kitchen and warming our toes by the fireplace.
I have nothin but good things to say about this place. Just beautiful!
4 of us came to Ireland for a wedding which was held in the church pretty much next door. It was perfect for everything we needed it for. Very comfortable and cosy. We will be coming back very soon!
We have stayed at Hillside Cottage before and will be booking again for next year. The cottage was spotless again and there is absolutely everything that could be needed. We are avid cooks and love the well kitted out kitchen and the BBQ is a bonus. We were unable to make use of it this year as the weather was inclement and the fish were not being caught but we did enjoy the lovely quiet sunshine in the mornings, in the garden with our coffee and no more noise than the BUMBLEBEEs buzzing in the floral borders. We didnt need the heating this year and only used the lounge fire in the evenings. We cant recommend this cottage enough for a great bolthole for exploring the area. There is plenty of linen and bedding stored if needed. Just a note - There is a short cut from the chapel next door down to the main street. We went to the local at the bottom of the road to the left (Schooner ?) and had the most amazing meal. It was huge though - be warned. The village store has everything. We recommend the Clonikilty Sausages and Black pudding.We highly recommend this cottage. Ruth, Walter and Rita.
A great place to stay, fantastic views and very comfortable. Great value.
