  • "This house is set in a beautiful rural setting, yet close to all you could need."

    The house is so comfortable, cozy and clean to a level I've not experienced in any rental before. The host was so welcoming and helpful! Looking forward to visiting again.

  • "What made the experience extra special was the lady Eleanor who owed the house."

    She was so welcoming and checked to see we were ok. Left in freshly baked scones too.

  • "Caola Nua was lovely, very quiet,very roomy, and beautiful views over Dunmanus Bay."

    There were only the two of us, my husband and myself, but even for six, there would have been plenty of room. Eleanor, the owner, is a lovely lady, very helpful, and her little dog was a frequent visitor during our stay. By the end of our twelve day holiday we felt really at home there, and were sorry to leave. i am a keen photographer, and the Sheep's Head Peninsula was full of stunning views, absolutely perfect for me! The area was very quiet at this time of year, but I understand, even in the summer, it never gets too busy.

  • "We enjoyed a fabulous week staying Caola Nua situated in a beautiful location overlooking the sea."

    The house was spacious and every window took advantage of the beautiful views which we couldn’t get enough of. The owner of the house is a lovely lady who made us feel very welcome, she left a home made apple pie and scones with jam to greet us on our arrival. We had daily visits from her little dog who was great company. We couldn’t fault the house or the area and would recommend it to anyone who wants a complete switch off from the world, you can’t help but relax here, we will definitely be back.

  • "Eleanor made us very welcome & greeted us with scones & an apple pie."

    The cottage was in an excellent location with beautiful views across the bay. The loop walks on the Sheepshead peninsula were well signed and gave plenty of options.

  • "The best thing was the owner's warm welcome."

    She even baked us an Apple pie and scones, and was waiting for us on our arrival. The cottage was in a fabulous location with great sea views and an excellent restaurant nearby as well as a village shop and pub. We appreciated the outside seating and the lovely sun room. Inside everything was immaculate and spacious. We would recommend the area for walking and cycling and for visiting places like Bantry, Ballydehob, and Glengariff. Overall, it was excellent value.

    The locals were very friendly and helpful. It was also a very convenient base for travelling farther out to visit landmarks and larger towns. All in all it was a very relaxing and pleasant environment, complemented by the helpfulness of our host.

About the location


Bantry 15 miles.

The lively and vibrant village of Kilcrohane is located south west of Durrus as you head towards the end of the Sheep's Head Peninsula, in County Cork. The village takes its name from the Church of St. Crohan founded in the 8th century. The crystal clear waters at the coast of Kilcrohane are exceptional, and provide a great place to swim and explore all of the hidden caves dotted about, while those who prefer to stay on land can enjoy the Sheep’s Head Way and traverse some of its 60 miles of trails. As well as fantastic land and sea scenery, Kilcrohane also has a wonderful traditional music scene, and plays host to the music festival Ceoil on the Coast each year, so no matter what you’re looking for on your Irish getaway, Kilcrohane has something for everyone!
