"Myself, my daughter and 2 young children loved every moment of our stay at The Old School. We arrived in the evening as the sun broke through the clouds showing us the spectacular views of Ballyheigue Bay. The house was gleaming, fresh wild flowers on the table. The fire was set and ready to be lit all thanks to Mary - the local caretaker - who was ready to help if called upon. Outside the patio and lawn in the full southfacing sun gave ample room for the toddler to play safely. Nothing to dislike about this place"
