From the moment we arrived at Boolakennedy, the magic and relaxation began. Just what we all need. The bungalow was over and above our expectations, we were blown away by it. The three bedrooms and bathrooms were all fitted out to a fabulous standard, felt like staying in a 5-star hotel. The log fire and breath-taking views of the Knockmealdown Mountains was the icing on the cake.
Paul popped his head in on several occasions to check all was well and deliver logs, a really nice person who has clearly worked very
hard to build this haven of tranquillity for lucky guests to enjoy. Lovely local pubs to dine in – couldn’t fault the place. Also, Cahir Castle, Cork and the Titanic experience are close by and well worth visiting. We will definitely be returning next year or sooner if we can fit it in.
