The property

Eyeries 1.3 miles. A charming and inviting detached cottage that boasts spectacular sea views, located close to the village of Eyeries, County Cork. Furnished in a contemporary style, this Eyeries cottage features warm and homely accommodation that won’t fail to delight. You’ll feel right at home as soon as you walk through the door of this Eyeries cottage and see the spacious living area, complete with a stunning double-sided multi-fuel stove in a stone fireplace. There is also a second cosy sitting room with its own open fire, so relaxation is guaranteed in this peaceful haven. There are three comfy bedrooms in this Eyeries cottage including a king-size double with its own en-suite Jacuzzi bath; what luxury! Both other bedrooms also feature en-suite facilities, making this the ideal home for any group looking to make special memories in a unique area of Ireland. Outside this Eyeries cottage is a large garden which rises to the rear and allows you to take in the breathtaking views across the Atlantic. The children can play safely whilst you soak up the enchanting surroundings with the soundtrack of the sea as a wonderful accompaniment. The colourful village of Eyeries is just a short distance away, with shops and traditional pubs that regularly feature Irish music. Take a stroll on the famous Beara Way, which passes to the front of this holiday home for scenery that will linger long in the memory. A trip to the expansive beach in Allihies, and to Castletownbeare to sample the fresh seafood in one of the superb restaurants is well worth it. Visit Dursey Island, accessible from Ireland’s only cable car, or just wander the miles of rugged coastline that surround your home-away-from-home. Further afield, day trips to Kenmare, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry are a must, plus across the bay, an area of south west Kerry has been designated as a dark skies reserve. This is an Eyeries cottage that you will want to return to again and again.

    • “Nice place, could use some updates”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We stayed at the house over the weekend of Oct 16-18. House is a really nice house and worked out well for our needs. There were some VERY simple things that easily could be corrected. 1. Internet password was nowhere to be found. I had to call the office to ask for it and was told a person would call me back with it. 1 hour later, no call so I had to call again to FINALLY get the correct one. Why not just put it on the fridge??? 2. TV in main living area would not work. We had to disconnect everything and then reconnect it to finally get it working. 3. TV’s in master bedroom and 2 rooms with twin beds were outdated tube type TV’s. The TV in the master, if it fell on a child, it would seriously harm them. 4. The TV in the master bedroom was a waste as there is NO CABLE BOX and therefore never worked. 5. The TV in the “Arial” room had a cable box, but only 1 channel worked. 6. We bought hamburger and hot dogs to use the grill that is provided and guess what! NO GAS. 7. The couch and loveseat in the main living area was so uncomfortable that no one wanted to sit on it. Very lumpy and springy. 8. No lights in the pool for swimming after dark. 9. Wash dishes while you are NOT home. This thing was LOUD!!! These were not things that ruined our stay; just bumps in the road that we feel could be easily corrected if the owner wanted to. Otherwise, it served a purpose but we will go back to other options next time.”

    Ms Bokowski, Rossendale, October 2015

    • “Whole cottage was spotlessly clean and views were stunning especially from the master bedroom. Beautiful and peaceful area to stay and everyone in Ireland were very welcoming. Great sized cottage, we would highly recommend this cottage to anyone and would love to stay again in the future.”

    Miss Martin, Milford Haven, September 2015

    • “The location was beautiful and the house was perfect for a relaxing break. Having all bedrooms en-suite was very convenient and the layout of the property was perfect even with a small baby.”

    Mrs Dooley, Clonard, September 2014

    • “Owner and key holder were extremely helpful, welcoming and accommodating. Very peaceful and picturesque part of Ireland. Sea Haven is a beautiful house and the children loved exploring in the garden. The view from the house looking out on the coastline was beautiful.”

    Mrs Brunton, Barrow-in-Furness, August 2014

    Mr Spoorenberg, Eindhoven, June 2014

This Cork village offers a true insight into Irish village life, with quaint fishermen cottages, and traditional pubs offering a warm Irish welcome.
