5/5 Excellent

We had a fabulous stay at Rock Cottages!!
I would highly recommend a stay at the “Stables “ at Rock Cottages near Schull! So peaceful , beautiful gardens and accommodation is so cute.. my sister and I stayed with my two dogs end of July 2019 and our hosts Jacqueline and Jonathan were so welcoming and friendly calling to give us free range eggs and freshly caught mackerel and checking that everything was ok with accommodation. We also really loved all the farm animals... Elsa and Saffron were so nice and really placid dogs.. and as for Barnie an Bonnie the donkey - what characters... we also got to feed the hens and geese which was great fun. Again loved our time there and will definitely return again !!

4/5 Good

Really enjoyed our stay in this gorgeous area!!
Great location, v central to Mizen Head, Crookhaven areas as well as Schull direction. Loved feeding the donkeys and the little walk way to the hill view.

5/5 Excellent

A warm and cozy place to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing. Great hospitality!
Jonathan and Jacqueline were perfect hosts. We had everything we needed and more. We enjoyed meandering around the property, and the view from the hill is amazing! We also enjoyed the pups Elsa & Saffron. They were adorable, and very welcoming. We would come back in a heartbeat! Mavis & Terry Floberg. Vancouver, BC Canada

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful accommodation in a great location with a lot of lovely animals
We stayed at the stables in july. It was a lovely accommodation in a great location. Unfortunately there were some very rainy days in this time, but it didn't really matter, because we felt like home and could read a good book at this time. There is a nice little way to walk directly behind the cottage. We had a lot of fun with the lovely animals. The donkeys loved their carrots, and the dogs and a cat visited us very often. Jackie and Jonathan are very friendly hosts. Excursions in the surrounding areas one shouldn't miss are Mizen Head, Sheep's Head and even Barleycove Beach.
