The property

Dunmanway 3.5 miles.

An excellent detached house next to the owner’s home just a short drive from Dunmanway in the heart of West Cork.

Well finished and offering wonderful views from the garden, this property will make a fantastic escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

With a double and a family room upstairs, on the ground floor you have the family bathroom and a good sized, well-equipped kitchen and dining area where everyone can be together while the food is cooking and the next day’s activities are being planned.

Or if you would like the night off, the owner can cater for you by prior arrangement.

After your tasty meal, kick back and relax in the sitting room in front of the woodburning stove, or head out to the garden with a well-earned drink and take in the views of the County Cork landscape while enjoying the summer sun.

The town of Dunmanway is close at hand for your basic needs and has some great activities such as horse riding, golf, kayaking and wonderful scenery which provides great cycle routes and walks.

If you wish to travel a bit further, the Wild Atlantic Way is close at hand for some truly spectacular views.

Or head to Skibbereen, Clonakilty or the city of Cork for a day of shopping and sampling the local culture, pubs and restaurants.

A fantastic holiday destination for anyone looking for an Irish retreat.
