  • "It was lovely and well kept."

    The weather was also incredible while we were there and we were able to enjoy the sunshine on the green valley and hills

  • "We thought the cottage was lovely, very comfortable, peaceful and quiet and it was ideally located for our purposes in touring the area."

    The hosts Abina and Tim were exceptional and added so much to our overall experience. Their hospitality, friendliness and knowledge of the area made our stay an experience we shall find hard to equal

  • "The owners (Tim and Abina) are two of the loveliest people you’d ever meet."

    They are super friendly, and will make sure you have everything you need. For example, the fire was blazing when we arrived after dark on our first night and the table was set ready for a meal. They also have a wealth of knowledge of the area which they are happy to share including lots of brochures for the local towns available in the porch for use during your stay. The cottage is in a great location for exploring as it’s quiet and remote with great views but is a close 5 minute drive to town with plenty of shops, pubs etc. It’s well equipped in the kitchen for self catering and the bed was comfortable. The owner needs to set the boiler for the radiators but there’s a fireplace for additional heating or drying wet clothes. A good traditional Irish farm stay.

  • "We had a wonderful week."

    Lovely welcome from Abina and Tim. The cottage was comfortable, well equipped and delightful. Set in the countryside within easy distance of so many nearby sights. We went to Blarney Castle, Gougane Barra, a stunningly beautiful national park, Kilmichael ambush site, Union Hall, Glandore and Rineen on the coast, kayaking around some amazing scenery, Brandon and Dunmanway, where there was great history to discover. The Methodist Church in Dunmanway is now occupied by the historical society and has a superb collection of local historical artifacts and information. Vivianne and Tim were very helpful. We spent a few fascinating hours there discovering the real history of the area. St Mary's Church in Dunmanway has recently gained 8 new church bells, we were taken up to the belfry and allowed to ring tunes. Locals have knitted a copy of the Sam MacGuire cup for the All Ireland GAA competition and it sits on the window ledge in pride of place. The churchyard is where Sam MacGuire is buried. The last Friday of the month in the Greyhound bar in Dunmanway, locals come together to sing their Irish songs. A true delight. All in all a superb holiday and would completely recommend.

The property

Dunmanway 3.3 miles.

Waterfall House is a delightful, end-terrace, single-storey cottage nestled on the outskirts of Dunmanway, County Cork.

The cottage offers far-reaching views of the surrounding countryside, off-road parking, and is pet-friendly, making an ideal base for a romantic getaway for two in Ireland.

A small porch with seating welcomes you in before stepping into the beautifully furnished, open-plan living space with a combination of traditional and quirky décor.

The sitting area is a relaxing spot where you can start the woodburning stove, choose a book or DVD from the selection, and sink into the armchairs.

Set the table for four, whilst your other half prepares a home-cooked meal in the well-equipped kitchen complete with an electric oven and hob and a drinks tray ready for an afternoon tipple.

Guests also have access to a shared laundry room and a front garden with outdoor seating to enjoy the lovely rural views.

When it's time to rest, there is a double bedroom with a wall-mounted TV, storage space, and an en-suite bathroom.

Start your holiday by exploring the market town of Dunmanway where you'll find a selection of traditional Irish pubs including The Southern Bar, supermarkets, and a variety of shops, cafés, and boutiques.

Walkers will find their paradise in the nearby Nowen Hill Forest Recreational Area with the ruins of Castledonovan and the Clodagh Standing Stones both nearby.

Head south to the town of Skibbereen, home to the West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen Golf Club, farmers markets, and Skibbereen Heritage Centre to discover the area's rich history.

Or perhaps take a scenic drive to the city of Cork where you'll find The English Market, Cork City Gaol, and the Crawford Art Gallery.
