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.

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 ...
... capture amazing views like that on film!), and the wind was almost blowing us off the top, it was so strong! The next stop was at a beach called Inch Beach. Because it was such a great day, the beach was absolutely packed! But not just with people... Everyone drives their cars onto the beach and parks them like it was a carpark! Our driver told us how his friend has a tractor, and he just sits on the beach and waits for the tide to come in, then when ...
... back to car to get my purse, saying to Elaine as I opened the door, “I know it’s a tourist trap but I can’t resist!”
Caitlin and I both picked up lambs, or what we thought were lambs. Caitlin was actually holding a fawn. The little white lamb was so fluffy and slow moving I thought it must be really young. “How old is this little guy?” I asked the man.
“Three days.” He said. I ...
