Cullen is a lovely fishing village, a nice peaceful place to relax with beautiful views over Cullen Bay. Our holiday cottage was well equipped, very comfortable and convenient for the local shops (especially theice cream shop). The nearby beach is very clean and never seemed busy or packed when the sun was shining. The owner of the cottage called uRead mores as we left home, to wish us a good holiday which was a nice touch. I would recommend Cullen and this cottage to friends and family Hide
