The Old Post Office is just wonderful in every way! From mountain views behind the house, to the coast at the front. The house is the perfect size for a large family with plenty of space. The ping pong table was a massive hit with everyone and the disco lights were loved by the younger family members.
With 7 bedrooms spread over both ends of the house there was no issue sleeping 14 adults and 1 toddler. The Kitchen is the perfect size for so many.
The scenery on the entire peninsula is breath-taking. Walking shoes and scenic drives are an absolute must.
The Urhan Inn was a massive hit and only a short walk from the post office. The owners and locals were absolutely lovely and joined in the sing song on our last night.
Cannot recommend this house, and the location, enough!
We were a party of 16 in total. Ages ranged from 12 to 86. Everyone loved the house, plenty of room to spread out. Well equipped kitchen. The dining hall (with table tennis table and wood burning stove) was a huge hit. Definitely need a car, although the local pub is a 2 minute walk. We did day trips to Garnish Island, via Glengarriff - Kenmare (very rainy, wet day) - hiked up the waterfall at Gleninchaquinn (fantastic scenery). Tried to go to Dursey Island via 'only cable car in Ireland' but arrived too late for crossing (note to self: always check timetables!), visited Buddhist meditation centre on beautiful sunny day. Fabulous location, scenery, lovely little coffee shop, very peaceful, very 'chilled' on departure.
Daniel and Mary (owners of The Old Post Office) always responded to queries very promptly via email and if we had any questions, Iain and Eimear (owners of the pub) were on hand to help. All in all, a great holiday, love to visit again.
We recently returned (early June) from a week's holiday and the Old Post Office was an excellent property that catered for all the family. We were able to enjoy our time both at the house with all of the facilities available as well as in the surrounding area. It had amazing views and the locals were very accommodating. We would definitely book this house again in the future. In fact we could only rate this property higher if there was a Guinness tap directly from the pub down the road into the house!!
What a delightful house! It certainly had everything we needed to feel at home. The kids were completely delighted with the table tennis, basketball & movie projector. The surrounding area was beautiful with lovely walks & picturesque little villages on either side within a short driving distance. We sad to leave & wish we could have stayed longer! Perfect for any families getting together thanks so much Daniel & Mary for letting us stay in your beautiful home.
