Absolutely no surprises. It was most comfortable and well stocked with everything to make our stay as pleasant as possible. I wish I could come up with one unpleasant experience while we were in Tragumna but I am at a loss. We were even wished a fond goodbye by the Atlantic Ocean on our last morning as we drove by the beach wall as a huge wave crashed over the car on our way back to Dublin. Breda made the rental process proceed without a hitch gave warning of the approaching storm on our last night.
The Lovely View, that's what An Radharc Alainn means in English and the house lives up to it. Lovely light hardwood floors throughout the house and a mix of modern and more rustic furniture. The view of Rosscarbery is stunning, especially at night as you can see the lights reflected on the water. If you're wanting to stay with kids, there's a minigolf course that's right next to it.
The airflow in the house is good so it was able to stay a very pleasant temperature even when it got into the 20s outside by just opening windows.
There are things you should know if you're booking this. 1) You will not be super close to a big city or attraction. Instead you're near a cute little square and the lovely town of Clonakilty and also pleasant Skibereen(although I prefer Clonakilty. 2)There is a working farm so at times there can be the smell from it. I didn't notice it too often but there were times we could see cows from the living room.
I stayed part of the time with my brother and when we called about issues they were addressed fairly rapidly. We were given directions and some food was left for us when we got there, which proved a godsend for the next day as we were both wiped out from being up over 24 hrs. When we got there she explained how to turn on the heating, how the hot water worked, and showed us where everything in the home was.
So boils down to, if you're looking for a beautiful home and a lovely slow time, this place is great. It's slow and the worst you'll hear is the laughter of kids and parents playing minigolf.
Oh and the tub was such I could lay down comfortably in it and not have to scrunch to fit, and I'm 6'! So that's lovely.
