We stayed in the Artist’s Studio for a week and it was one of the best weeks we’ve ever had. Julie and Alessandro were perfect hosts.
We have visited West Cork numerous times over the years, but this is by far the best place we have stayed. If you want peace, tranquility & amazing views this is the place for you. The studio itself was full of character and tastefully furnished with quality fittings. Beautiful bed linen in one of the most comfortable beds we have slept in.
Can't imagine staying anywhere else when we next visit West Cork!!
We had an excellent time in the Artist’s studio, it was so well laid out and the attention to detail was amazing. We loved having breakfast in the sun room and the views from the bedroom are breathtaking.
Without doubt this was a 5-star property and we will be back every year!!
Lovely studio for 2 adults on the fantastic Sheeps Head peninsula near to Bantry in West Cork. Spectacular setting with excellent views. The studio is furnished in a rustic style to a very high standard. The kitchen is basic compared to the adjacent cottage, but is adequate. A wood/peat burning stove provides extra heat on cold evenings. A well lit sitting room with lovely daybed provides a comfortable daytime retreat. There are plenty of lovely walks in the area, and much to see within driving distance. Very helpful owner.
We are not long back from one of the most relaxing trips we have ever been on. We honeymooned on mainland Europe last summer and so decided to explore Ireland this year.
This beautiful studio fits in with this stunning part of Ireland. It was well-equipped, tastefully decorated and very homely. The views from the bedroom window are something else. A couple of nights we opened the French doors just to gaze at the moon.
The pool was a very welcome addition on warm days.
- day trips to kinsale and the ring of beara
- afternoon trips to Bantry house, the sheeps head lighthouse and the Heron gallery run by annabel and lisa langrish
- evening trips to Gougane Barra, Glengariff and Arundels in ahakista
We're just sorry that we didn't have time to explore all of the galleries, walks and restaurants.
The locals were very friendly and the food was great. We didn't want to go home!
