The Property

Leap 3.5 miles. A contemporary semi-detached cottage located next to the owners’ own home, in the townland of Cashel, close to the pretty village of Leap in west County Cork. This stylish Leap cottage has been tastefully furnished and lovingly decorated throughout to offer an ideal rural break for a couple looking for a romantic retreat in one of Cork's most unspoilt regions. This bright and airy cottage near Leap boasts a spacious double bedroom with the added bonus of an en-suite shower room with walk-in shower. The fitted kitchen comes well-equipped and after a delicious meal together you can snuggle up in front of the woodburning stove in the sitting area to plan your adventures that are still to come. Step outside from your Leap cottage to enjoy the view of the rolling hills and fields that stretch as far as the eye can see. With a wealth of attractions within easy reach, the village of Leap is an excellent location for your Cork getaway. The village has quaint shops and pubs and is surrounded by unspoilt scenery and landscapes, plus take a trip to Glandore, a picturesque sailing village with pretty cafes and eateries overlooking the harbour.

About the location

LEAP, COUNTY CORK

Skibbereen 6 miles; Clonakilty 14 miles.

The pretty village of Leap is located in West Cork between the towns of Skibbereen and Clonakilty. It is home to a fine all-weather harness racing track, tennis court and playground, as well as an excellent selection of shops, pubs, and dining facilities. The surrounding area is recognised as having some of Ireland's most beautiful scenery with sandy beaches, secluded coves, fast-flowing rivers, lakes, hills and forests, all easily accessible for walkers, cyclists and drivers. Further afield but still within driving distance is the lively market town of Kinsale - renowned as the “gourmet capital of Ireland” and famous for its food, friendliness and traditional flavour. There are many festivals throughout West Cork during the year which should not be missed, and with dolphin and whale watching opportunities along the coast, this is an ideal location for discovering this unspoilt part of Ireland.
