Tigh na Carraig (which means the Stone House) is at the edge of Goleen village. A pretty, unspoiled village in West Cork. There is a small picturesque harbour, a couple of bars, an excellent sea food restaurant, antique shop and grocery shops. A popular two bedroom cottage has everything needed for a comfortable holiday, located on a quiet lane off the main road to the Blue Flag beaches and has lovely views of the surrounding hillsides. Built of stone it is light and airy a popular property for a couple. The open plan living areas make the house compact yet spacious and the price is attractive for this sought after area. There is an

open fire in the sitting room and the remaining rooms have electric convection/storage heating. It is private, yet not remote and neighbours are near by. The walk to the village is pleasant and there is nothing better than taking a stroll to the little harbour to watch the lobster boats landing their catches and return via one of the bars for a glass of stout - or two

The County Cork region

Goleen is the most western village of the Mizen peninsula, which has been described as 'A place apart.' not merely by location

but also character. The long, rugged peninsula that jabs out into the wild Atlantic pointing towards America is an unsung

gem, a corner of Ireland that is less publicised and less famous. It is a holiday area chosen by those in the know. Magical

names, Knocknaphuca, Ballyrisode, Heron's Cove, Mizen Head, describe the high hills, low mountains, rivers, streams,

hidden valleys, soaring cliffs and sandy beaches surrounded by the irrepressible ocean which is never far from view.


An ideal holiday destination, walker, swimmer, horseman, sailor, painter, golfer, writer, birdwatcher, or professional relaxer,

this is a place that will make you happy. The weather is variable, but rarely cold. Unpredictability is its true description and

sometimes all seasons can be experienced in the course of a day. Spring and Autumn can be kinder than summer in some

years. It can sometimes be swathed in sea mists, or bathed in glorious sunshine. The wind can be spectacular and

on a galey day, it is well worth watching the Atlantic whipping up a storm at the Mizen Head. We do rain particularly well

and the Gulf stream still has influence and makes us the happy recipients of pockets of lush vegetation and areas with microclimates. Spring time presents every corner with daffodils which give way to an unending procession of blooms and blossoms almost all year around. The clear bright air is a gift for photographers and painters and wild life abounds.

Between all the three Mizen villages every kind of service and amenity is available. Reasonable roads take you on to

major routeways, so although life is on the extreme edge a short drive will take you to all sorts of interesting activities and

places. Even in the height of summer the peninsula remains refreshingly uncrowded.
