  • “The Sanctuary is gorgeous.”

    The house is beautiful and enormous. It's very remote so excellent for a getaway. It sits on a huge garden with a play area for the kids and a lovely patio area for dining out. It's all very picturesque. ...

    The house is beautiful and enormous. It's very remote so excellent for a getaway. It sits on a huge garden with a play area for the kids and a lovely patio area for dining out. It's all very picturesque. We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was provided: Towels, sheets, cot etc. Lots of stuff in the kitchen and loads of space for dining or cooking. The beds were lovely and comfortable and the house was very easy to heat as the evenings were getting cold (Early Oct). We will definitely be staying again.

The property

Killavullen 2.6 miles.

This detached holiday home is a lovely bungalow that sleeps six people and is situated near to the village of Killavullen, County Cork, nine miles from the market town of Mallow.

This three bed bungalow provides a modern haven in the Killavullen countryside.

Set in 15 acres of land, it’s the ideal property for both couples or a family looking to get away from it all for a while.

There is a large kitchen with electric oven and dining area that comfortably seats everyone, a utility room with washing machine and dryer and a sitting room complete with open fire, two sofas and a TV with Sky.

There’s also a bathroom with hand-held shower and three bedrooms, two of which are doubles and one is a single with an additional fold-out single bed, as well as an en-suite.

Completing the property is a large open-plan storage/children's play area in the converted loft space.

There is also access to 15 acres of land, complete with a seating area, and its very own stream to complement relaxing afternoons sat outside.

There is also ample off-road parking for a number of vehicles.

Killavullen is fairly remote, set away from the hustle and bustle of city life, but there is a small shop for emergency supplies and a pub to be found in the centre of the village.

However, you're only a fifteen-minute car journey from the town of Mallow, which is home to a number of traditional Irish pubs, as well as two castles and a number of priories all of which hold a lot of historical importance to the area.

If you’re willing to travel a bit further afield, you can visit Ireland’s third city, Cork, just a 40-minute drive away, where you’ll find an opera house, various pubs and restaurants, plus many other attractions.

This bungalow set deep in the Cork countryside is the ideal destination for that relaxing country getaway.

You’re surrounded by tranquility, yet still have all the conveniences of modern life available to you, and have one of the biggest and most thriving cities in Ireland less than an hour's drive away.

About the location


Mallow 6.6 miles; Cork 21miles.

Killavullen, meaning "the Church of the Mill" is a village situated on the River Blackwater, in County Cork. The village is located just south of the N72 road, is 6miles east of Mallow and 20 miles north of Cork city. The village is home a pub and a small shop, as well as a church which dates back to 1839. A short drive away is the market town of Mallow, the largest town along the stunning Blackwater Valley, offering bars, restaurants, shops and a Spa House. The old Mallow castle is set in the middle of the town, with the new castle situated behind, with white fallow deer in the grounds. The area is a haven for walkers, fishermen, golfers and horse riders, and close by is the Folk Park in Boherbue, and the Doneraile Wildlife Park, both well worth exploring. The Blarney Stone, the town of Killarney, and Cork City are also essential to visit whilst staying in this area. With so much to see and do, this part of Ireland is superb at any time of year.
