Enjoy the star gazing and the tranquil evenings. Park up outside of your lovely new home-from-home, taking a moment to soak in your tranquil setting before heading indoors. Once inside, be greeted by an array of well-appointed living spaces, including a fully-equipped kitchen complete with every appliance you’ll need to rustle up a hearty, home-cooked dinner, a dining area with table and ample seating, and two sitting areas each housing a TV, seating, and a solid-fuel stove and open fireplace, respectively. When the sun has set, be sure to refresh with an indulgent bath or a rejuvenating shower, before you finally hunker down to catch a well-earned rest in one of the three double bedrooms, one of which is located on the ground-floor and is accompanied by it’s very own en-suite. If you can tear yourself from your peaceful new lodgings, set out to explore what your local region has to offer. A brief car trip into the village of Leap will bring you to Centra Leap, where you can stock up on homely essentials; The Harbour Bar where you can tuck into a tasty pub lunch; amble through the serene landscape of Leap Community Garden; and even catch a live performance at Connolly's of Leap. Further afield, those searching for activity can delight with a walk through Rineen Woods, whilst those who prefer something more relaxing can pay a visit to the ancient site of the Drombeg Stone Circle, both spots just a short drive from Leap. Heading west by car, you can find the Skibbereen Heritage Centre and the Skibbereen Golf Club; to the north, the Waterfall Alpaca Farm and the historic sites of Castledonovan and the Clodagh Standing Stones; and to the east, the lush, golden stretch of Inchydoney Beach.

About the location LEAP, COUNTY CORK Skibbereen 6 miles; Clonakilty 14 miles. The pretty village of Leap is located in West Cork between the towns of Skibbereen and Clonakilty. It is home to a tennis court and playground, as well as an excellent selection of shops, pubs, and dining facilities. The surrounding area is recognised as having some of Ireland's most beautiful scenery with sandy beaches, secluded coves, fast-flowing rivers, lakes, hills and forests, all easily accessible for walkers, cyclists and drivers. Further afield but still within driving distance is the lively market town of Kinsale - renowned as the “gourmet capital of Ireland” and famous for its food, friendliness and traditional flavour. There are many festivals throughout West Cork during the year which should not be missed, and with dolphin and whale watching opportunities along the coast, this is an ideal location for discovering this unspoilt part of Ireland.
