Seal Cottage is a Traditional Thatched Cottage with its own private beach on the North West Coast of Ireland.
The property sits right on the shore front, enjoying spectacular Sea Views.
The cottage was lovely and we were lucky enough to meet the man who had built it 20 years ago! Loved the turf fire and the great view of the bay - and the seals. A heads up - the sea only comes up to the edge of the garden at monthly high tides. Again, we were fortunate to be there for the autumn equinox and it was a surprise to return to the cottage after being out for the day on our 4th day to discover that the tide had finally come in! Prior to that, we only saw seaweed...
The whole experience was great for our first time on AirBnB. The hosts were helpful with information in advance on the cottage location etc. with good directions and handy hints given. The cottage was clean, well kept and presented, with a welcome package of goodies - we felt at home straight away, every time we looked for something that we needed, it was there. Although the weather wasn't the best (not host's fault) it did not take away from the stay as cosy nights in by the turf fire were then possible. The cottage was in a wonderful peaceful and idyllic setting, the feeling of getting away from it all but yet close to shops and restaurants, local amenities etc. Great beaches, sites and wonderful drives very close. I wish it was ours and we will be back so that we can pretend that it is.
