Just a few reviews from visitors to Ahakista Escape …

We had a fantastic stay over the New Year, this is the 4th cottage we have stayed in around Cork and this one is definitely worth a return visit.
Nothing is lacking, everything you could possibly want is available and much more, so comfortable we had to drag the kids and ourselves out every day. The hot tub has a lot to answer for! Wifi, Satellite Television what more could you ask for?

We enjoyed days out around the Sheep’s Head Peninsula, ventured into Bantry, Glengarriff and spent the New Year with friends on nearby Bere Island (well worth a visit).Good local places to eat were the Gateway in Durrus, the Brick Oven in Bantry and breakfast at the Cottage Bar in Glengariff.
Hope to return soon.

We stayed in Ahakista in June this year for a week or so after doing the Cork Marathon. The place really exceeded our expectations? Ciaran was very helpful and made us feel very welcome. The property is finished to a very high standard and has loads of space inside and out to chill out and take in the views.
It’s located on a quiet lane with elevated views of the sea from the main property, the deck and the hot tub. It has everything you need for self catering including a gas barbecue. The 2 pubs are within reasonable walking distance – one does good food, the other just drinks but has a big lawn by the sea for the kids to run around – we tended to drive down and leave the car, it took us about half an hour to dawdle back.
The beds were comfy and the hot tub was a real treat. The DVD came in handy for the kids when we decided to have a pyjama day due to heavy rain. All in all I would recommend the place highly and would definitely return. We returned home thoroughly relaxed with happy memories of our stay.

Ahakista Escape was fabulous! It was an extremely modern and comfortable place to stay. The Peninsula is beautiful for hiking and biking, and the Bantry music festival is wonderful, as well. Ciaran is a great host and is attentive to making your stay go smoothly

My kids and I had a great trip. I highly recommend staying here!
