About Jacqueline Sarsfield

I am a fun loving individual who loves travelling and meeting new people. My particular passion are the animals here at Rock Cottage and the beautiful unspoilt landscape. My interests are walking, photography & cooking. I love to go walking around this part of Ireland and exploring all the beautiful sites. My passion is to go to the local farmers' markets and cook with locally grown produce.

Jacqueline Sarsfield purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Jacqueline Sarsfield chose Schull

I spent much of my childhood here in Ireland having been born in Dublin. I moved full time to Ireland in 2014 from London.

What makes this chalet unique

Having rented Rock Cottage for over a year, I decided to purchase this beautiful place and continue with this well established holiday accommodation business. The gardens, paddocks and surrounding hillsides are stunning, particularly the 360 degree view from the top of the garden overlooking Dunmanus Bay, The Sheeps Head and on the other side the hills and Mt Gabriel.

My wife and I stayed in the Rock Cottage chalet for a leg of our honeymoon across Ireland, and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay here any more. As others have stated, the setting is extremely tranquil and quiet, and you can even see the ocean from the hill atop the property! We so enjoyed exploring the area, including the nearby Mizen Head Peninsula and the lovely towns of Schull, Goleen, Crookhaven. We also took a ferry out to a nearby island for a day hike - all of these activities are minutes away. Best of all, Jackie and Jonathan were extremely kind, helpful, and accommodating hosts, and we would absolutely love to stay with them again in the future. We honestly can't say enough good things about our stay at Rock Cottage. Thank you again for everything, Jackie and Jonathan!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

This nice little cottage is very well located and has got everything you need for amazing holidays.

There are beautiful paths around the area, with stunning views.

As well you'll find some great attractions, like the mizen head and the Barley Cove Beach.

Even on bad weather days you can perfectly relax or play with all the animals on the property.

We really miss the two adorable donkeys, Barnie and Bambie and the cats and dogs.

Jacqueline and Jonathan are very friendly and helpful.

We definitely want to visit them again.

Thank you very much for such a beautiful holiday.

Best regards

Perfect Place to Stay, ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough positive things about the chalet and hosts. The setting was peaceful. The property is a tucked away and there is no car noise, which is exactly what we wanted coming from a city. The bed is VERY comfortable. The whole arrangement afforded us the best nights sleep my wife and I have had in ages. Kitchen has everything needed and is stocked with some essential items like cooking oil, salt, pepper, tea bags, etc. The hosts are wonderful and shared some farm fresh duck eggs. Not a far drive to explore the peninsula. Make sure you go to Three Castle Head and do the little hike up to the top overlooking the castle and water. Breathtaking. Anyhow, no regrets booking this property. This made our first trip to Ireland very memorable.

Rock Cottage Country House is located near Dunmanus Bay on the Mizen Peninsula on the Wild Atlantic Way in West Cork. Rock Cottage is set in a stunning coastal landscape surrounded by farm animals. Stunning views of the Atlantic and its beautiful sunsets can be seen from the top of the garden. The property is within easy access of Schull, only ten minutes drive away. Schull offers many good restaurants, bars with music as well as good shopping. It is also within easy driving distance of the Mizen head, Ireland's most southwesterly point which offers beautiful views of the wild Atlantic. The area also benefits from several sandy beaches including one of the largest and most beautiful sandy beaches in Ireland, Barley Cove. We can offer deep sea fishing trips as well as fly fishing (booking by prior arrangement). Other activities include golf, swimming, tennis, and cycling. There are many trails for walking and hiking, particularly on the Sheeps Head where you can hike through miles of breathtakingly beautiful landscape. or if you prefer water sports, golf or maybe whale watching or cruises to the islands , all available locally. The area set on the Wild Atlantic Way has charming little towns and villages with festivals, country markets and music in the evenings in the local pubs. Only a few miles from here you could indulge in some serious pampering and visit the Natural Therapy Centre for a seaweed bath or an Indian Head massage and lots more.

The Good Things cafe cookery school provides excellent cooking classes.
