The setting of this house is really what makes it! It is on St Finan's Bay, gorgeous beach, crashing waves, in the dark sky reserve, just incredible location and views. The cottage is on an old farm, no close neighbors, great fenced yard, good parking. Ann was so helpful with recommendations, everything we needed in the house, even dropped off games for our young kids, the bookshelves are loaded with good reading options. The cottage itself is quite dated, nothing fancy, heated with peat. It's about 20 mins to several main towns, and 2 mins to the chocolate factory. If you value the seclusion peacefulness of this location over fancy, then this is the place for you, and you can't beat the price.

Beautiful landscape and a short stroll to the beach, ideal location if you want to get away from the fast lane! 15 mins from portmagee by car where we booked a landing tour on Skellig Micheal which was one of the highlights of our 2 day trip aided by the weather. Roads are very narrow but well worth it for the views ..if you drive carefully!!Ruins of the Glen church which is close by also worth a visit. Did not spend much time in the cottage as we were out and about.

We have been in St Finians bay many times in the past and were very happy to discover this cottage being advertised on Airbnb. Located right next to the beach, away from pubs and shops, is something that we like the most. Perfect for swimming, hiking, walking and star gazing! The cottage gave us really good vibes. You don't even have to go outside to see the amazing view. We could stare at the waves all day and never had enough - very calming and relaxing experience. Then when it is getting too dark to see the view, you can still enjoy the sounds of the ocean while relaxing in front of the stove. The place is also very comfortable with its spacious rooms, large bathroom with walk-in shower and kitchen with all the equipment one would need. Ann is a great host, very careing and attentive to details.

I had a lovely time in Ann house with my husband and friends. First of all the location is fab, close to the Finbar beach, lovely view from kitchen and living room. We enjoy beach and location so much. Cottage really big, well equipped kitchen, chimney. The Glen is a great place, close to nature far enough from crowded turist spots. Lots of fantastic places to visit around. I love to stay in this house for a month ☺
