    • “Owner very friendly and approachable, home was better than the pictures on the website. Its a bit isolated nearest village is 3 miles away. Cannot find anything bad to say. All in all, well worth the money!”

    • “A breathtaking view from a comfy cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The owner was very helpful, providing maps and tips on places to visit. There was some fresh fruit, grown on site, in the fridge and an offer to help ourselves to more. There was also wood cut for the first fire, with lots more outside. The cottage was comfortable and provided everything we needed. The surrounding area was great for after supper walks with great views no matter which direction you looked. It wasn't very hard to find either. After the first drive out there, following the owner, we never got lost. The property would work well for anyone. And there was lots of outside space to enjoy in the yard for kids.”

About the location


Cork 21 miles.

The small market town of Macroom nestles in the picturesque valley of the Sullane River and is dominated by the walls of Macroom Castle. This bustling town offers a choice of shops, restaurants and pubs, three hotels and still holds a twice weekly street market. One of Macroom's best kept secrets, Castle Demesne, is set amidst 100s of acres of mystical woodland, awash with secluded riverside walks and stunning, panoramic views of the town, while three miles from Macroom lie western Europe's only extensive remains of Alluvial Forest. Carrigaphooca Castle, stood on an outcrop of rock, high above the trees is worth a visit, while the fabulous cities of Cork and Killarney are within easy touring distance, as are the stunning beaches of West Cork.
