  • "A warm welcome from the owner, and a lovely warm, clean cottage in a beautiful location."

  • "We managed to find the cottage in the end - it's well tucked away (though that was great - just what we wanted)."

    The owner and her dog are both extremely welcoming; the accommodation is clean and comfortable, and we had free access to the huge, lovely garden. It's in a beautiful part of Ireland and well placed for access to Skibbereen, Bantry and the stunning coastline.

For those sunny Irish afternoons there is also a unique viewing spot across the sea to Heir Island at the top of the garden.

With Skibbereen's sandy beaches, colourful shops and pubs just 6 miles away, there is plenty to do for all the family, including the Heritage Centre, fascinating West Cork Arts Centre, a superb golf course and an indoor sports centre.

Heir Island is within easy reach via a 5 minute boat journey from the nearby Cunnamore Point and offers a unique day out with breathtaking landscapes, walking, cycling and the celebrated Island Cottage restaurant.

Slightly further via boat or road is the harbour town of Baltimore, extremely popular for water sports, dolphin and whale watching and its many shipwrecks.
