The property

This delightful detached cottage lies just a ten-minute walk from the harbour town of Castletownbere on the Beara Peninsula, a slender finger of land that juts out into the wild Atlantic Ocean in County Cork.

This immaculate Castletownbere cottage has been decorated and furnished to a high standard throughout to offer not just quality and comfort, but a home-away-from-home for you and your loved ones during your West Cork holiday.

Boasting four well-presented bedrooms, this family-friendly cottage in Castletownbere has a stylish fitted kitchen with dining area, which offers a spacious and social spot to enjoy wining and dining with your nearest and dearest.

After a long day roaming and discovering the sights of the Beara Peninsula you can relax and unwind by the stove in the cosy sitting room, or in the comfortable conservatory which offers pleasant views across the manicured garden to the front.

Step outside your Beara cottage to find a wonderful garden with a patio area where you can enjoy an alfresco lunch or simply use this space to sit and soak up the peace and quiet.

Situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, the small town of Castletownbere is home to a delightful harbour and is Ireland’s premier whitefish port offering a plethora of mouth-watering seafood eateries to whet your appetite.

Boat trips to Bear Island, canoeing, swimming at the sandy beaches, sailing and kayaking are just some of the water activities available in Castletownbere, or if you'd rather explore on foot, the Beara Way walking route and Ring of Beara route offer some spectacular trails taking in breathtaking and unspoilt scenery.
