    We came here mid December and it is now Febuary 2nd and we are still here. A friendly and warm welcome from Mr Willson. The cottage is nice and clean and set back from any traffic so it's very peacefull and we found our selfs laying in on a . Mr Wilson also welcomed our cats who love it here. We would recommend this to anyone wanting a peacefull Irish get away. Also check out the local pubs, O Donavan and the Gailic bar up in Drinargh. O Donavan may look abit rough on the outside but like they say, do not judge a book by its cover as its a nice friendly pub inside. The local are very nice to. There's loads of places to go and visit in the area so your never stuck with nowt to do.

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.
