    “Gorgeous Accommodations with all the Comforts of Home”
    The El Dorado is a large, very spacious modern home. There are 5 good sized bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, large kitchen, 2 family rooms and a sunroom with all the comforts of home. It is situated within walking distance to Drinagh (market, etc). It is conveniently located to Dunmanway and Clonakilty and not to far from Bantry and Cork. The owners are extremely accommodating. I recommend most highly!

About the location


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.
