Great location to get away from it all. Cottage, grounds and location are excellent and Kathleen and Tony couldn't be more accommodating in ensuring we had everything for an excellent holiday. We will be back.

“Picture postcard perfect.”
Reviewed 25 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Imagine a picture post card perfect cottage: roses around the door, views over the bay, beautiful countryside, this is Heron's Cove Cottage Ballydehob. Add to that all the necessary conveniences for a comfortable 21st century stay and you have what must be one of the best holiday cottages in West Cork.
Our time was too short, but we will return.
Thanks Kathleen and Tony for the kind welcome.

“Lovely cottage on the water amazing views!”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The cottage was perfect! Kathleen the owner met us in town and showed us the way.
She was so kind to leave us a welcome basket of goodies and lots of info of the area. The cottage had everything you needed and decorated beautifully. The views from the cottage were amazing. So quiet and peaceful. Great central location to travel and see south of Ireland. And come home everyday to a a cozy bed. Lots of wonderful hiking trails. Great place to stay to explore beautiful southern Ireland.
Thanks again Kathleen and Tony!

“Where time seems to stand still and the seals wave you hello”
Reviewed 12 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

After an amazing week at herons cove last year, we couldn't help but return to this magic place. There is love in every corner of the cottage and we enjoyed it very much to watch the seals on the rocks in the bay right from the window. Sitting in the sun, watching the water coming in and out of the bay - for us, there is no place more peaceful and more worth to stay at than herons cove.
Kathleen and Tony are the most lovely hosts, always looking for us to feel comfortable and to have enough things to do around in beautiful west cork.
The cottage itself - again - was clean and comfortable, well equipped and the perfect home away. As we cannot help but return to Ireland more and more ever since we've been there for the first time, it will definitely be herons cove again in the future.
Thanks to Kathleen and Tony and all the best for you!

“A memorable stay at Herons Cove Cottage”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We recently spent a marvellous week at the charming Herons Cove Cottage.This very attractive cottage overlooks Roaringwater Bay & the garden runs down to the waters edge.The owner,Kathleen,couldn't have been more helpful & met us in the village to lead us down the meandering road to the cottage & even had left us a "welcome hamper"!The cottage itself is really most attractive & very well equipped.We were a group of 3 adults & 2 children & there was plenty of room for all & it was well equipped.Outside there was a choice of different seating areas with wonderful views over Roaringwater Bay & a pathway leading down to the waters edge where the children discovered a swing & a hammock!
I would readily recommend Herons Cove Cottage for your stay in West Cork.
