Beautiful large one bedroom cottage set on an acre of landscaped gardens five minutes drive to gourmet restaurants, terrific live music and breath taking scenery, what more could one ask for!!

The cottage is nestled in a tranquil location in the coastal town of Bantry Bay.

There are many award winning restaurants to choose from and beautiful boutique shops to entice you also.

The cottage is situated in an ideal location to enjoy many places of interest especially The Sheep's Head Peninsula which has been designated as a European Destination of Excellence.

The County Cork region

West Cork is a beautiful, peaceful area on the South West Coast of Ireland, here you will find great restaurants, amazing scenery, fabulous coastal walks and chatty locals full of stories.

Bantry is fortunate to having the stately home of Bantry House and Gardens overlooking its beautiful waters, the house and gardens are open to the public and well worth a visit, if your really lucky with your timing you could even take in a classical music concert and some delicious food in their tea rooms.

Whiddy Island is just off the shores of Bantry Bay, it can be reached by ferry which travels on the hour from the pier, Whiddy Island is steeped in history, you'll even get a pint there after your days walking and maybe the locals might even be singing!!

So much more to do ...... all you need is the time to do it !!!

"Beautiful Bantry!"

What a gem this place is! Just a few miles outside of Bantry Bay, this was a fabulous place to relax and take in the surroundings. We were welcomed by Walter the owners labrador, and he was always there to greet us on our return each day with a wag of his tail!! The welcome from Sheila could not have been warmer, with plenty of supplies in the fridge for a slap up breakfast and loads of local info. She even drove us into the town so that we could enjoy a pint of guinness or three!
My husband and I both really enjoyed our stay here and we wouldn't heditate to recommend to anyone looking to stay in this area. We are already talking about a return visit.

Walter is getting too use to the extra loving he's receiving!!. It was my pleasure having ye stay, pity I couldn't be around those extra few days for the trips to town. Delighted ye enjoyed what Bantry has to offer.

Warmest regards

"Great accommodation."

Stayed in the house for a week. It was lovely and very comfortable. Quiet location a few minutes drive from Bantry town. Perfect location for walking trips around the Sheeps Head peninsula. Owner was very welcoming and a mine of information. Would definitely recommend it.

Thanks so much for your kind words, I do try to provide as much information so that everybody knows whats happening for the week in the area.

I agree, we have terrific hill walking on our door step!!
