    “Croi Cottage proved to be a great place to stay for exploring West Cork.”

    Close to a quiet beach near Toe Head yet only a few miles from Skibbereen it was ideal for our needs. Vicky

The property

Situated on the outskirts of the coastal village of Castletownshend in County Cork, is this detached, white stone cottage.

Croi Cottage offers a superb base for a group of friends or two couples looking to explore this remote and coastal area of Ireland.

The property has been extensively renovated into a stylish holiday home, with a light decor and modern furnishings, while still retaining its lovely period features, such as the exposed beams.

The open-plan living room has plenty of seating, with a delightful multi-fuel stove to keep you warm during those chilly winter months, whilst the dining area offers a quiet space for you to enjoy a game night or read a good book.

The kitchen has been equipped with everything you could need to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal for the whole group.

There are two king-size bedrooms on the first floor, both well-presented, with plenty of quality furniture to store your personal items.

The family shower room rests on the ground floor for easy access, with high-quality fixtures and fittings for your comfort.

Outside has a lawned garden and patio area with furniture, so you can take a refreshing beverage out of a morning, while your pets run freely in the enclosed space.

If you don't fancy cooking, then discover a small selection of local pubs and restaurants within easy reach, serving traditional Irish food and ale.

The area has at least four beaches to choose from, the nearest one being a 3 minute walk from the cottage.

The Warren Gallery opened in 2003 and showcases displays from local artists - for those interested in arts and culture, this is a must-see attraction during your visit.

The expansive coastline offers a number of local beaches to explore, not forgetting the nearby lakes for a variety of watersports.

If its history you're looking for, the visit Drishane House, dating back nearly 250 years and set in stunning country gardens, and housing a magnificent museum holding collections based on the Irish novelist Edith Somerville, showing many of her letters, drawings and photographs.

Croi Cottage is the ultimate location for a group of friends to relax and unwind.
