Tahilla Cove Country House
Travel Blogs from Sneem
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' …
... I decided it could be from a flash hotel anywhere, until I spotted Pan Seared Breast of Skeaghnore Duck with Roasted Summer Fruits and Chilli Jus, served with, of course, mashed potato. 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 ...

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.

... minutes and was only halfway there. I had decided I didn't want to be that far out. I went back to the first place thinking maybe they had just popped out for a quick errand, but still no one was home. So I walked up the road to the next nearest place.

... The excitement was beaming out of her and we thought not to tear her away from this experience. She made introductions all around and we settled in to a nearby table to also take the opportunity to fully experience the Irish conviviality.

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.
