"Lovely cottage & great location"
Beach Combers Cottage is situated in a beautiful setting in Templetown overlooking the sea. We were a party of 5, my husband & I, our two boys (8 & 11) and my father who has limited mobility. We located the cottage on google maps and used these directions to find the property but had previously received directions from the owner, Harry. It took just over an hour from Dublin ferry port to the cottage. We met Harry a couple of times when he checked that we had everything we needed and he was very friendly and informative.
We found the cottage to be fully equipped and the layout was ideal for our family. We used many of the kitchen facilities as we had a number of home cooked meals and made use of the dishwasher, washer and tumble dryer. We ate regularly at the dining table in the kitchen/diner and its a shame that you can't look directly out to sea from the table as the view is obscured by some very hardy plants/bushes located along the cliff top fencing, but these are essential to protect the property from the high winds that we experienced.
At the end of the property there is a gate that leads down to the beach, initially rocky but then sandy further along the coast. We had some very pleasant walks along the beach and circled back to the cottage along the lanes.
We also visited the Titanic Museum in Belfast and Dun A Ri Forest Park , Kingscourt, both of which allowed access for my dad in his mobility scooter.
We had a lovely week and hope to go back to Ireland again in the future.
