“We found the location of the ...”We found the location of the property absolutely beautiful. We were surrounded by stunning countryside and overlooking a lake - a walker's paradise. And having access to the lane way and land behind the property was excellent for walking our dogs. We particularly enjoyed the nearby beach of Derrynane - the water was so clear for swimming and snorkeling and there are lots of rock pools for the children to explore.
