We had an absolutely wonderful time in the property. The views from the long house were exceptional and all the bedrooms are lovely and cosy! Would definitely recommend!
The accommodation perfectly meets the expectations raised by the pictures on the Internet.
The apartments are located on Rock Island at the entrance to Crookhaven harbour. You can experience the wind and surf directly and enjoy the view of Fastnet Rock from the terrace outside.
Mizen Head, Garinish Island and other sights can be explored from there.
It was just great and we would like to come back again soon.
An hidden gem
Amazing property, with amazing views - thank you!
My family of five had an incredible week at the lighthouse. We easily found activities and day trips in this area of Cork that we loved, as well as friendly people and some great food, but we all looked forward to returning to the lighthouse each afternoon. My husband found everything he needed in the kitchen to cook most nights, and the house was full of board games and books. We found that almost all activities are exciting and relaxing when undertaken in a glass room overlooking the ocean! The area around the house had so many stunning views and places to explore, and the many wildflowers were just gorgeous. After a week’s stay, none of us were ready to leave, and my six-year-old has hatched a few schemes to get back that involve ponies.
A few things to know: you do absolutely need a car, and we (Americans used to roomy cars, roomy roads, and driving on the right) found the roads challenging in general and the long narrow lane lined with rock walls to reach the house really difficult. We had the hang of it by the end of the week, but kept a policy of only leaving and returning once each day, with 4-5 minutes of silence in the car so the driver could give full attention to getting us in or out and we could all hope that we wouldn’t meet a car going the opposite direction (which luckily, we didn’t). It was beyond worth it to stay in such an amazing place but definitely a consideration for planning. Also, there are a number of businesses that only take cash, and the closest ATM is in Schull. In terms of safety, after establishing some ground rules, we felt like the setup was perfect for our 6, 9, and 12-year-olds to enjoy, but it would have been tough to relax with, say, a strong-willed, climbing 4-year-old.
Our stay at the lighthouse made for an unforgettable family trip. We feel so lucky to have been there.
Special and beautiful place, amazing location and house, unforgettable family holiday!!
This house and it’s stunning location blew us away!! It’s bright, warm , cosy and spacious ,a beautiful piece of architecture,not to mention the fabulous views!! It was like being on a ship, surrounded by the ocean and the soothing sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks below.Everything you could need was there!A fantastic location with great beaches and villages near by, locals so friendly. Had the most delicious and fresh crab sandwiches in Crookhaven in O Sullivan’s bar!Overall an unforgettable few days with family ,so much so we booked our next visit the day we got home!!If anyone is thinking of booking ?just do it and go !you will not be disappointed!
We spent a really enjoyable break over Christmas with my sisters family and parents who live on the other side of the harbour who joined us for Christmas celebrations. Thank you for the Christmas decorations you added.
The accommodation split over the two lighthouse keepers cottages suited us very well as our older independent children had their own space. The location is stunning, the views inspirational and the house is cosy, stylish and was very well equipped for our needs, even the walled single lane track from the main road revealed a stunning view at every turn.
Plenty to do here in winter. Who wouldn't enjoy relaxing, playing board games, reading, walking (Brow Head, Barleycove beach, Three Castles Head pier, the old mountain road to Goleen) watching the wild life and whiling away time in pubs.
We all wished we could have had more time at the lighthouse but even so, our short stay was very recuperative.
A car is a must.
Thank you for letting us stay.
