Wish we were still there.

"We felt at home the moment we arrived. Greeted by hosts and were given a tour with lots of information. The property is clean, modern and well equipped. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and include swings and kayaks. Well situated to explore the cork area, we were able to take day trips each day and return in plenty of time to have dinner at the villa or walk over to the pub just around the corner. Westerly is more beautiful than the photos show and we highly recommend for a large group."

We recommend Westerly House strongly.

"We were a family group of nine celebrating a golden wedding anniversary. Westerly House is sited on the waters edge at the top of a sea inlet. The uninterrupted views are outstanding. The gardens are extensive, landscaped, and well maintained. There is a pontoon where one can just sit out or if feeling energetic launch kayaks which are provided for guests use. The house itself is furnished to the highest standard featuring a very well equipped kitchen and dining area with a most attractive table that seated all nine of us easily.The bedrooms all have sea views and wonderful on suite bathrooms. The beds are very comfortable. The lounge is big with a large panoramic views of the inlet and islands. There is an out door hot tub which the younger ones used frequently and thoroughly enjoyed. There is a friendly pub and supermarket within walking distance and an upmarket though rather expensive deli almost opposite.We had a memorable week and yes, it wasn't cheap, but you get what you pay for and the view of the family was that it was well worth it. We recommend Westerly House strongly."
