“off the beaten track country escape”
Reviewed 28 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Wow, what a view. We were very lucky with the weather during our stay, and every day could just sit up on the top of our mountain, with the sheep, and take in the vista. The cottages have been very carefully brought back to life, so that they are now a haven for nature lovers, walkers, cyclists, and anyone who wants to escape from the world. interesting un-made up road to get to the cottages but any car can make it as long as you take things slowly. Great accommodation that suited our family get together, and close to the beach and some lovely bars and restaurants.

“One-of-a-Kind Experience”
Reviewed 27 June 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This interesting and peaceful and peace-filled and beautiful spot on an Irish hillside overlooking sea and mountains is a one-of-a-kind retreat. We felt as if we had dropped into a hobbit house (for full-sized travelers), soon to be sent on a mystical journey through space and time. If you want to experience "real Ireland" courtesy of a host who will most obligingly assist on any and all fronts, this is definitely the place for you. Peter supplied wonderful directions, maps, encouragement and information about the area and was warm and accommodating on every front imaginable. Sheep wandering close at hand and birds and views and plentiful cozy fires and quiet and a wonderful library compliment your stay. You need a good driver and a sturdy car to navigate the entrance to the cottages, but those challenges are part of the fun.

Thank you. Barralach does indeed lend itself particularly well to large family get-togethers. The generous open fire, the very large dining table, and accommodation in three separate cottages provide the perfect environment.
