House is large and spacious with plenty of room for 6 people. However the layout is not conventional and being of old brick construction feels cold and damp. I would say that some element of heating is therefore required unless really hot. We used the...More

Thank you for the review which we shall take into consideration. I am sorry that you felt the house was cold, it has been an unusually cold summer which would have affected things. I hope the fire cheered things up.

About the neighbourhood
Mill Race House is in the outskirts of the delightful and small village of Durrus. The town has real Irish charm to it with a selection of pubs and restaurants and a local shop where you can collect all necessities. We would be delighted to recommend local bars and shops to renters. Durrus is also located in the heart of the countryside and right along the coastline so there are plenty of outdoor activities to be done without getting into a car.
