  • "Great location, excellent for dogs, quirky accommodation and property is south facing."

    Lovely to sit out in the front garden with view of water but some hedging is now overgrown and obstructing a better view. Everything inside the cottage functioned. The place just needs a bit more TLC, to bring it back to prime condition....

  • "A gorgeous cottage off the beaten track literally but just off the main road."

    Scull is 11km and Goleen is 5km. The house is so well appointed and so comfortable. Some holiday homes can be very clinical but Mudflat is so homey. Our doggies loved it One very small thing is that the mobile signal inside the house is very poor but given the location and the view it's only a very small thing. The Owners are next door and they're lovely. We're looking forward to coming back.

  • "Great little cottage near a lovely, quiet beach."

    Very clean. All the comforts of home. Well situated - lots of walkways, beaches and other attractions to visit nearby and bring the dog (if travelling with your four legged friend). Owners live nearby and are very friendly but not intrusive. Excellent option for anyone looking to get away for a bit. Eimear & Cathal

  • "My friend and I really enjoyed our recent stay at Mudflat Cottage."

    The owners Dan and Francoise were very welcoming and made us and our dogs feel at home. The cottage is very quaint, clean and has everything one would need for a self catering holiday. The only downside was that the phone coverage and wifi is very weak but in my case that contributed to my holiday, being totally able to switch off. The location of the cottage down a lane is ideal for dogs, no passing traffic and plenty of space to explore. Highly recommend this cottage ...

  • "Excellent location, only a few miles from Mizen Head."

    Beautiful views in every direction. House was very clean, beds were comfortable. The owners live next door, and they (and their dog and cat) are very friendly, and at the same time, they leave us alone to enjoy our holiday. Very peaceful and relaxing. Shopping: there are some small shops at Goleen, Schull and Ballydehob, but if you're looking for Aldi, Lidl, or Supervalu, go to Bantry (16 miles away) or Skibbereen (20 miles away). Bantry doesn't Aldi, but it has the other two supermarkets.

  • "Had a lovely, lovely stay at Mudflat."

    The cottage was extremely cosy with a roaring fire and spotlessly clean. Our hosts were lovely - gave us a very nice welcome and lots of privacy - invited me up for a New Year’s drink which was lovely. Will be glad to stay here again

  • "It’s an old fashioned and basic cottage with charm and it’s is in an isolated peaceful location."

    The owner was very helpful with local information and maps and allowed us to use his home grown lettuce. We had a large boat and he arranged a friend to store the trailer. You wake to the sound of curlews and if you are lucky with the weather as we were the garden is nice for meals and relaxation. We had a brilliant week of sailing and exploring.

  • "Very warm welcome from Dan, who was readily available to advise about the various options available to us to maximise our enjoyment of West Cork."

    Whilst we thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and will return, the lack of road signage throughout the region needs to be addressed at a national tourism level. We would highly recommend the Mudflat, Goleen, property which was very well presented and very clean.

  • "Myself and my husband and two boys (aged 8 & 11 years) had a fantastic holiday in the Mudflat."

    The house was cozy and very charming. It was very private with wonderful views. It is a haven for nature lovers. The owners were extremely kind and helpful and did everything they could to enhance our stay. Our Yorkshire terrier pup absolutely loved it also. She very quickly thought of the house as her own! The owners were great with her. The nearby beach is fabulous and there is plenty of places to visit that are only a short drive away such as Mizen head, Three Castle head, Barley cove. There are also lots of lovely restaurants and pubs. I would give this holiday ten out of ten for enjoyment. We had a fabulous time and would definitely recommend it to others :) We will be back.

  • "The photos don't do this property justice at all."

    It is just delightful, as are the owners. They were friendly and welcoming and made sure everything was fine for us without intruding on our privacy at all. The cottage is situated down a little lane with no passing traffic. Safe for dogs (who are made very welcome) and children. It is homely and has everything you need to make for a very relaxing holiday. We would recommend this property to anyone. We were sad to leave.

The property

Goleen 3.5 miles.

This stone-built detached cottage is set down a country lane overlooking the inlet leading to the Green Flag, sandy beach of Ballyrisode, a 3 minutes drive away, and is close to the rural village of Goleen on the Mizen Peninsula of West Cork.

Quaint and cosy throughout, this cottage offers a homely and comfortable place to enjoy and explore this stunning part of Ireland.

The cottage boasts a traditional layout with a fitted kitchen and dining area, and an inviting sitting room which is complemented by an open fire for extra comfort during your stay.

Upstairs, two welcoming bedrooms complete the accommodation.

The front of the cottage offers a secluded garden where the children can play safely and you can sit out and relax with a refreshing drink.

Just a few minutes' drive away is the Green Coast sandy beach at Ballyrisode, so why not take a picnic and spend the whole day here?

The village of Goleen is home to a selection of pubs, a local shop and café.

Why not visit Ireland’s most south-westerly point at Mizen Head, home to the historic signal station, maritime museum and heritage centre.

The charming harbour village of Schull, just a fifteen minute drive away, is home to a wider selection of shops and pubs and is a wonderful place to spend a lazy afternoon browsing the local market, purchasing interesting books and perhaps trying a spot of sailing.

This region of Ireland is rich in marine life, glorious coastal scenery and charming Irish culture.

The cuisine is second to none, with fresh seafood at the heart of most eateries where you can indulge in delicious local produce.

Speckled with pretty harbours, secluded inlets and bays, West Cork is a wonderful choice for your Wild Atlantic Way road trip.

Why not discover it on bike or try a spot of island hopping and wash it all down with a pint of Guinness in a cosy pub.

A truly magical part of Ireland where you won’t be disappointed.
