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. The town's museum houses a fascinating anthology of folklore material together with one of the finest collections of the West Cork hooded cloak. 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.

Previous visitors' comments about The Stepping Stone:
The Stepping Stone is a bright, spacious, modern house with a warm atmosphere. There was plenty of room in the big kitchen/diner to cook and entertain. Would love to stay there again. We met the owners who are lovely people, they brought us eggs during our stay.
