    This was our second stay at Harkaway Cottage. The premises are beautifully-kept, the accommodation ground-floor with spacious and easily accessible rooms including walk-in shower making this an ideal retreat for anyone with limited mobility. There is a shared garden with outdoors seating and a laundry room so you can be self-sufficient throughout your stay. The owner is always on hand and ready to help. An ideal base for exploring southwest Ireland: Cork City within an hour’s drive and the Cork Racing Course Mallow even closer. Mallow, just ten minutes’ drive from Harkaway, has excellent shopping facilities, both local stores and supermarkets including the excellent Dunnes Stores in the Market Place. The location is rural but not isolated. A perfect combination and a perfect cottage.

    Beautiful cottage surrounded by roses. Park of a courtyard of cottages with shared gardens. Laundry room and games room within the courtyard. Cottage was superbly equipped and immaculately clean. Everything you could possibly want for a stay. Bathrooms en suite and lovely, lots of towels provided. Could not fault the cottage. Owner left us home made scones, jam, butter, milk, biscuits - where on earth would you get this? Nothing was too much trouble. She even helped organise transport for my husband to golf - I was working during the day when we were there :( but he had a ball! Central location to Killarney and Cork (which is why we chose it as I was working in both venues). Lovely village nearby at Castletownroche. Car is required. Highly recommend.
