Fantastic vacation site

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at this wonderful cottage in what we thought was the most scenic part of Ireland. The views from the cottage are breath-taking and we enjoyed being on the northern side of the Dingle peninsula, which is less "touristy". Cloghane is a nifty little village a short 5-minute ride away where we ate dinner a couple of times at O'Connor's pub/restaurant; the food was delicious. (If you attend the local ceilidh in Cloghane, come prepared to sing a song!) We also had a great meal in nearby Stradbally (Tomasins); a little farther away, in Castlegregory, are several great restaurants we enjoyed and a Spar for grocery shopping. We also enjoyed renting bikes at Castlegregory, although I would be a little leery of biking on roads in other parts of Ireland.

We needed every bit of our 2 weeks to savor the Dingle peninsula. We hiked twice behind the cottage through sheep pastures to one of many loughs (lakes), again out at Brandon Point, and along multiple beaches. Tralee (40 min drive) is the capital of Kerry (nice museum) and the rose capitol of Ireland; we enjoyed a Siamsa Tire performance of Irish song and dance there. In that direction also is Killarney National Park and the Muckross estate. Or, you can go south through the Conor Pass (an adventure all by itself) to the town of Dingle (touristy) and out along the Slea Head drive. We picnicked there, went to the Blasket Island Information Center and, on a different day, took the boat to Great Blasket Island, which was fascinating.

Scorid Cottage itself is very comfortable and Veronica was very hospitable, greeting us with fresh scones and jam. We took one of the downstairs bedrooms (there are 2) with its own bath. We also used the tub in the upstairs bath, which has two additional bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped.

An Irish custom that requires some forethought is that electricity is expensive and oil and electricity is metered and charged at the end of the rental period (this was true for other rentals, as well). We were conservative in our usage and it only cost us about 15 euros per week; a large group who indulge themselves in lots of hot water or heat can expect a much higher tab.

Overall, we had a wonderful time at Scorid Cottage and would highly recommend it. The cows and sheep right next door were a bonus. A regret is that we were too late in the year for the lambs.

Scorid cottage review

  • 5 of 5

This was my third stay at scorid cottage. The location as a fishing base is ideal, every type of fishing a very short drive away.The cottage is very spacious clean and has everything you need. Veronica will welcome you with scones and is a short walk away should a problem arise. Can't wait untill my next visit.

Lovely Ireland

  • 5 of 5

Deceptively large cottage in a beautiful part of Ireland. Small niggles were very quickly sorted. Plenty of space inside and outside with wonderful views from the lounge. Could not ask for more at this price. Highly recommended.

wonderful holiday at Scorid Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a great holiday Veronica at Scorid Cottage, we had a wonderful time staying with you.

The cottage was just as we expected, clean modern and views to die for. Veronica welcomed us with some home made scones, was available if we needed any help, but left us to our own devices to enjoy the peace and quite of the surrounding country side.

We honestly did not want to leave and hope to visit again one day.

Anne and Nigel.

Comfy Cottage in a Gorgeous Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 8 adults and 1 infant greatly enjoyed our 4-night stay at this cottage. We had plenty of space for our group, with large bedrooms and enough bathrooms plus living space and kitchen. All of it was well-equipped, clean, well-maintained, and comfortable. The setting is absolutely fabulous, with views out to the mountains and down to the ocean and fields of sheep all around. It's easy to explore the Dingle Peninsula from here, as well as Killarney National Park and other sites in southwest Ireland. The owner was friendly, accommodating, easy to work with, and overall just lovely, providing us with a few food items to get us started, including some delicious homemade scones with jam. I'd highly recommend the property and would love to return one day.
