We had a wonderful stay at Blarney Stone cottages. Ros accommodated my booking blunder and took us in. Warm ,very comfortable with everything that opens and shuts. Woke up to frost on the sheep ! Great place for a family or group of friends to get away from it all. Our favorite stay in 2 weeks of road tripping.
