This property is situate on a truly awesome and very unique setting, perched about 200 feet above sea level and with panoramic views of Bantry Bay and the Atlantic ocean. Located on the famed Sheep's Head peninsula, which received the European Destination of Excellence (EDEN) award in 2009. The house is also nestled at the foot of Mount Seefin on the Goat's path walking and cycling route. Relax in the grounds, which comprise over one acre of landscaped gardens, or go walking or cycling the quaint country roads on this wonderful peninsula. The local pier is within a mile of the property. Ideal base for touring West Cork & Kerry and must be seen to be appreciated!

Landscaping: Spectacular location with over an acre of manicured grounds, incorporating private sun bathing areas and natural stone seats at the front of the garden which overlook Bantry bay and the Atlantic ocean. A new outdoor room was constructed in the winter of 2011, affording the visitor a cosy, sheltered, secluded and private area with panoramic views. Watch the lighthouse flash from across the bay or view the amazing white horses on the Atlantic ocean during winter gales. Enjoy the newly planted herbatious border in another part of the garden or picnic on the splendid rockery at the rear of the house with views to the Atlantic Ocean to the west.

Aspect: Ar Neamh Beag is situated on an elevated position overlooking Bantry Bay on the North side of the Sheep's head peninsula which is situate between the Mizen head to the south and the Beara peninsula to the north. On the other side of the bay opposite the house, a lighthouse at Roancarrigmore can be observed flashing every night. This is located near Adrigole on the road into Castletownbere.?

Views: Castletownbere itself sits ensconced neatly behind Bare island which is the island/ landmass to the left as you gaze across the bay from Ar Neamh Beag. The distance across Bantry bay is circa 4.5 miles (7.2km).?

Mountain: Apart from fronting onto the sea, Ar Neamh Beag is also nestled at the foot of a small mountain called Seefin-mountain, which measures 345 meters above sea level.?
