“Lovely cottage in beautiful area with welcoming hosts.”

We had a great week staying at Molly Cottage, which was comfortable and well appointed and in a lovely setting with views down to the coast and with the more rugged backdrop of Mount Gabriel inland.

Set in beautiful West Cork, there is plenty to do and we enjoyed some fabulous walks and enjoyable sea trips. Local pubs and amenities excellent. A great place just to chill out.

Hosts Robin and Helen very helpful and welcoming.

“Very Relaxing”

We had a wonderfully relaxing time in Schull. Molly Cottage is an ideal base from which to explore West Cork. The cottage is well equipped and a peaceful haven to return to each day. The views from the cottage are stunning and Robin and his family couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. Our daughter (8) especially loved playing with their dog and seeing the other animals.

Schull is beautiful and perfect for those that like water sports or hiking. There are plenty of things to do for all ages including; exploring the beaches, visiting the local islands, whale watching and visiting the neighbouring villages.

There are loads of lovely restaurants in the area, we can strongly recommend the Paradise Crepes in Schull and the Church Restaurant in Skibbereen. The decor in the latter is stunning, the food is also lovely.

We look forward to returning very soon.

“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 10 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I´ve stayed for 11 days with my wife and my son and we´ll have no doubt that in case we come back to schull we´ll go again to this house.
Absolutely beautiful, clean, confortable and precious gardens.
Great atmosphere of peace and relax. And the house and surroundings are even better than in the photographs.
Thank you Robin and family for letting us share a piece of your paradise.

“Perfect cottage for relaxing holiday”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We spent eight days in Molly Cottage, enjoyed every one, and wished to stay much longer.
The cottage is well equipped, comfortable and very clean. It is absolutely everything you require on holiday. Having a morning coffee in a private garden, surrounded by a beautiful countryside, listening only to the birds and bees....can you ask for more?
But, there was more.....Sea safari, Cape Clear , Sheep's Head, Mizen Head, Baltimore Beacon, Lough Hyne etc. We even managed to see dolphins! What a wonderful experience! The cottage makes an excellent base camp for exploring the area.
Thank you Robin, thank you Ireland, we will be back.!
