TravelPod Member ReviewsTahilla Cove Country House Sneem
This place is on a pretty cove away from all the hustle and bustle of Kinsale. The solitude is wonderful. The country house is a little older, but the rooms are very large. We had a balcony overlooking the cove. The hosts are very friendly and their meals are very good. They have a drawing room where guests can gather after a meal to chat. The grounds are very well manicured.

Now, what I like about the Irish, is that they're not stingy with their servings of mashed potatoes. Yuuuummmm. First cauli we've seen since leaving our vege garden too. A superb meal.

Over the ferry to West Cork. We stopped at a Centre c-store for build-your-own sandwiches which we ate at tables in the store.
We arrived at Bantry fairly early so decided to drive the Beara Peninsula. Down at the end we took the cable car ride over to Dursey Island and back. Then we headed for Sneem.
Dinner was in a hotel pub and quite tasty although the staff was extremely busy and we had to hunt them down and ask ...
... then made the journey to the Blarney Castle where we got to enjoy the feat of climbing to the top of the castle and my dad was the only one to kiss the stone, we were all a bit to chicken when we saw how high up we were. Going through the gardens of the castle was also really cool because there are a lot of plants that are considered poisonous that you wouldn't even think would ...
... and Ashley telling me that I am not here to stay in my shell and that I need to experience all that I can. Plus one of my professors went so I did too, I did not want to look like a punk. In the end it was worth it. I have some of the best photos from the beach. Now I have to just conquer facing other realities of trying new experiences. Those that know me understand what I ...
