    “The house was small but perfectly ...”
    The house was small but perfectly formed as they say. A little gem of a place with lovely sea views at the end of a private garden, so peaceful and relaxing. There was also a small cove beach literally on your doorstep. It was a great base for touring in between Youghal and Ballycotton.

The property

Ballymacoda 2.5 miles.

This cosy mid-terrace cottage is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac, overlooking the sandy beach at Ring, near the village of Ballymacoda in East Cork.

Previously the residence of the coastguard, this cottage boasts panoramic sea views out across the bay towards Youghal.

This charming cottage has been lovingly decorated and furnished to provide comfort and quality for couples or small groups looking for a peaceful getaway.

The ground floor comprises a well-equipped fitted kitchen with a breakfast bar and there is also an inviting sitting room with a dining area which is complemented by a multi-fuel stove, so you can curl up with a glass of wine after an invigorating day at the beach.

Three cosy bedrooms complete the accommodation at this coastguard cottage, where guests are guaranteed a good night’s rest.

To the front of the cottage, you can find a quaint garden where you can relax in the sunshine and soak up the sea air.

In the neighbouring bay is a mussel farm and, if you ask the farmers nicely, you might get to sample some!

The village of Ballymacoda is home to a shop and pub and is a truly wonderful base to explore East Cork and the South East of Ireland.

Why not visit the famous seaside town of Youghal, home to beaches, golf, traditional pubs and delicious restaurants?

The heritage village of Ardmore in County Waterford is a short drive away and a superb place to spend a day with the children.
