I stayed here in the spring of 2014 and absolutely loved it. I was looking to spend a week by myself, writing and reading and going for long walks, and Green Lodge was the perfect place for a DIY retreat. I didn't rent a car, just took a taxi from Bantry, and that worked out fine (I did WANT to feel like I was in the middle of nowhere!) The owners are lovely and I felt like I got really good value for my euros. The cottages would be great for a family holiday as well.
Cons: Not the place to go if you want pub life
