We give it ten out of ten

"We would highly recommend Cottage 25 at Barley Cove in West Cork. We stayed there for a week in June with family and kids and we loved it. Just a 2 minute walk from the beach, safe play area for the kids and very relaxing surroundings...we will definitely be returning customers and give it 10/10."

25 barley cove cottage

"Stayed here in August 2016 with wife and 3 kids under 12, what a place! The location is fabulous with a fantastic beach and a small hotel in the complex with bar and food right at your doorstep. The cottage we stayed in was great too, it had everything we needed and was well looked after, I spoke with the owner who was happy to share her knowledge of the area with us and was very accommodating (THANK YOU). Between the cottage, the beach, the hotel, mizen head, the beautiful scenery and the friendly people we had a great holiday and would highly recommend barley cove and will definitely stay there again."

"What a perfect place to stay. It has all the amenities we needed with a small baby of 8 months. The house was in perfect condition and was very clean. It is right beside the hotel but far enough away that there was no noise at night. The walk to the Mizen head each morning at 10am was the highlight for us as the coffee shop opens up there at 10.30. Looking forward to our stay again next year!!!!"

Loved our stay in Barley Cove Courtyard Cottage 25

"We had a wonderful week in Barleycove. The cottage was perfect. We chilled there very comfortably and it was the perfect base to walk to the beach (which we did twice each day) and to visit Mizen Head, Goleen, Bantry... We'll definitely be back ;)"

We will definitely be back

"We stayed in the cottages from 8-15 August 2015 and had an absolutely fantastic time. The house was perfect, clean, spacious, well maintained, had everything that we needed. The location is perfect right beside the beach and with the hotel on your doorstep for great food and fabulous views of the beach. We had the perfect week weather-wise, which always helps, but found the location a great place to base yourself for travelling around West Cork. I cannot recommend the accommodation and location highly enough and we will definitely be back."
