Ninorc is a 19th century farmhouse that has been faithfully restored and modernised to bring it up to 21st century standards. The house is on a working farm and your host Brian lives on this farm with his family.

The house has 4 bedrooms upstairs (one ensuite) and one bedroom downstairs (which can function as an additional living room). In addition, there are two bathrooms, both of which have power showers (one upstairs and one downstairs). There is a modern kitchen with all the appliances you would expect as well as crockery and cutlery. There is conservatory dining room off the kitchen, which opens to a patio. There is a main living room for relaxing with a wood fired stove and TV. Wifi internet is also provided. Outside, there are two substantial gardens and splendid views of the lush West Cork countryside.

The house is just 5 minutes drive from the busy market town on Bantry, which is also a fishing port. Bantry has a major supermarket and other shops and services located in the centre of the town. Fridays see a well established artisan food market with produce from the surrounds on sale (check out the Gubeen cheeses & salamis or the wonderful Baking Emporium breads and cakes). There are five restaurants in the town, ranging from the award winning Fish Kitchen to bistros such as The Brick Oven and Tractors. There are a number of cafes, including the fantastic Organico as well as Floury Hands and de Barras.

Bantry has plentiful night life, especially during the summer and weekends, notably in the Anchor Bar, Ma Murphys and the The Mariner (live music venue). Bantry is home to Bantry House and Gardens, which is an Anglo-Irish mansion and garden of international fame. There is an 18 hole Golf course in Bantry and a 9 hole in the nearby village of Glengarriff. As a port the town provides access to the bay for those interested in sailing, angling or just those interested in touring the bay and islands.

The house is located very conveniently for touring the three peninsulae (the Mizen peninsula, the Sheeps Head peninsula and the Beara peninsula) that are located in this part of south west Ireland. Each of these peninsula has it's own character and are filled with small villages, wonderful walks and cosy bars and restaurants. On the Mizen peninsula is the lovely village of Schull, which has many and varied restaurants as well as daily ferries to the Irish speaking island of Cape Clear. The house is 20 minutes drive from the lively town of Skibberren and 30 minutes from the busy Baltimore (home to lovely pizza and oysters in La Jolie Brise).

Cork City is an hour away by car and is the main air access point for this area through the airport. The nearest ferry terminal with access to the UK is Rosslare in Wexford. There is a summer ferry service to and from France in Cork City.
