Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi James,



Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I was away for a few days.



We had a ball at Skellig Cottage. The weather was shocking so we got great use out of the house. The layout was fabulous. Everything was spotlessly clean and anything we needed was there. We even made use of the barbeque (in very extreme conditions).



We enjoyed it so much we were thinking of heading back there again for New Years Eve, if its available.

Thanks again for everything James. I'll be in touch re New Years Eve at a later stage.

Our beautiful Holiday at Skellig Bay Cottage in Waterville

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at Skellig Bay Cottage. The house is very generously cut and very nicely furnished. The view is fantastic. We felt very comfortable.

Amazing place. Beautiful and spacious house in a spot with ever changing views over the bay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen area is huge and the views from the windows are really amazing. Its a 180 degrees view of the bay with ever changing vistas. No matter what the wheather is.

We found it hard to leave the place after only one week.

The house is well equipped, with several sitting areas. Only remark on the downside is that some kitchen appliances start to show some tear and wear.

Nice surpise was the availability of a Nespresso coffee maker with a milk frother for a real cappuccino. So bring the cups of your own liking for a perfect coffee ;)

Quiet cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples from Australia enjoying a 3 week stay in Ireland. The cottage accommodated us well but we would not call it a luxury seaside cottage. The kitchen facilities were very good and we really appreciated the new coffee maker. The only thing that could be added to the kitchen is a couple of containers with lids. The milk etc in the fridge was much appreciated. Both of the en suite bathrooms are very small and restrictive and the showers lack a soap container and there is only a towel rail for the hand towel and washer. Perhaps some towel hooks in the bedrooms would assist with this problem. We dined out on most evenings and on the last night we went to the Smugglers Inn Restaurant (near the Golf Course) and we had the best meal of our 2 months holiday - would really recommend this to other guests. They even have an Early Bird Menu offer which is extremely good value - get there by 6.30 pm.
