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.

Today the we have what the Irish call a 'soft' day. This means a slightly misty drizzle off and on, with cloud cover most of the day. The fog coming in from the ocean is up in the hills but doesn't obstruct the driving. We decide to take the long way around to Tahilla (just outside of Kenmare). This means that we are traveling the little 'fingers' …

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. The deserts all looked like they'd be on a menu anywhere in the ...

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 ...
... what... it's just like... oh... riding a bike! You always remember how to do it. So off we set, confidently headed towards the National Park. I know I sound like a broken record but really, you are just going to have to look at the pictures. The bike track is around the middle lake of the National Park and takes you to Muckross Abbey and House on the way. We also stopped to hike one of the paths through the rainforest and checked out ...
... crazy. Sometimes we were driving on the main road where there were no road markings and only room for one car (in a two car lane) and you would have to pull over to let the other car through! A big truck came at us and we kinda side swiped overhanging bushes on the stonehedge. Haha I think we both got a cardiac workout today! Gina is quite a good driver though! We then stopped in Sneem, a quaint little town and set off to find Staigue Fort, a round ...
