The Province of Munster region

County Cork is full of truly breathtaking natural beauty. With unspoilt beaches, historic castles, and modern visitor attractions, there’s plenty for all ages to absorb and there is always plenty to see and do in County Cork.

The County Cork region

County Cork is one of Irelands largest counties, is home to the second largest city, and has both spectacular coastline and lovely countryside in abundance, Cork is World renowned for its beautiful coastline. Moving in-land, and you are soon in the hills with great walks and climbs; the heights offer spectacular views over the southern Irish landscapeand interesting villages offering everything from heitage ,history ,golf , wonderful beaches , and the best pubs and restaurants that you will find anywhere in Ireland.


Mallow is centrally located for everything from historic buildings and stately homes and gardens to activities like golfing, fishing, walking, mountain biking, pony-trekking and horse riding. The town has an excellent tourist office and information centre, genealogy centre, two historic castles, and great bus, rail and road links.

It boasts two weekly food markets for those wishing to avail of the best of local produce, fresh from the producers. And within striking distance of the town are two excellent activity centre's that offer everything from fishing lessons, to archery, kayaking to Zorbing and Zip lining! There's a choice of equestrian centre's and for those of us preferring less challenging activities there's everything from Liscarrol Donkey Sanctuary, Cork Racecourse Mallow and Doneraile Park. Of course during the summer months there's road bowling on Sunday afternoon's and on Sunday evenings there's the wonderful old tradition of dancing at the crossroads at Laharn. All this and so much more to do!

Local amenities include golf ( Mallow, Fermoy and Doneraile within 12klm), angling at the farm, horse riding, walking - Ballyhoura Mountain walks - the Ballyhoura Bears welcome our guests on their weekly walks and heritage sites. Killavullen farmers market is a must for our guests. Stay with us and go Mountain Biking on the Ballyhoura Mountain BikeTrails 10 minutes from our cottages.

Walk the bank of the Blackwater River at the farm where nature can be experienced at it's best, enjoy the wide variety of plants on the hedge rows, count the many birds you will see, robin, swallow, trush and yellow hammer to name a few, sit by the river and watch the ducks and swans swim by and if you are lucky the shy otter may peep from under the over hanging bank. At dusk enjoy the flight of the bats.

Stroll from Sand Cottage along the country road to Bridgetown Priory which was founded by Alexander Fitz Hugh Roche in the early 13th century. Its buildings are placed around the usual quadrangle. The church is on the north side, and is divided into two parts, with the eastern section having 13th century lancet windows and a good 15th century tomb niche. Considerable portions of the domestic buildings remain including a covered passage beside the cloister on the east side and a fine refectory with 13th century lancet with windows on the first floor of the southern range of buildings.
