“Regina and Paul's place was the accommodation highlight of my trip: I simply needed a place to crash on route to Cork, but their place gave me the emotional nourishment I didn't know I needed amidst a long road trip. The place is cozy and stylish, reminding me of little California cabins I've stayed at. Regina greeted me, having already started a fire in the little fireplace located in the private unit. It's a small space, but the space is really well utilized. It felt like a regular sized apartment. It's a mini kitchen, but they had everything I needed: Regina had carefully stocked the mini fridge with milk, butter, yoghurt, and jam for my stay, along with some fresh soda bread for me to enjoy in the morning. I was here mid-November, and it was one of the few properly heated places I've stayed at! It's very quiet at night, so I was TOASTY in bed listening to the rain on the roof. It's the kind of place you can really relax at. I regret not having allocated more time to spend here: I would have loved to get to know the hosts more. 'Tis my only regret :)”

Firville Lodge is an old timber gate lodge which has recently been refurbished. It is located on the outskirts of Macroom town just off the N22. This beautiful building has an open plan downstairs with bathroom tucked away in the corner and has two bedrooms upstairs. Firville Lodge is perfectly located in the middle of the Lee Valley with easy access to Cork City (40km), Killarney (45km) and on the doorstep of the scenic West Cork.
“Firville Lodge is a wonderful place. The bedrooms are upstairs and the living area and bathroom downstairs. It's modern. Una showed us how all the appliances worked. She was very welcoming. Firville Lodge is convenient to Blarney, Cork & Cobh. Breakfast groceries were in the frig & perfect. A hidden gem in the area is the Toy Soldier Factory. We would highly recommend Firville Lodge.”
