From the owner

Kilcoe Cottage is a five star, spacious, luxurious, self catering holiday home away from home in a peaceful location just 3 miles east of the quaint village of Ballydehob and seven miles west of the bustling market town of Skibbereen. Sitting adjacent to our 1850s farmhouse on nearly two acres it has glorious rural views which are interspersed with glimpses of Roaring Water Bay, especially from the Hot Tub.

With the Mizen Head (Irelands southernmost point) and Lough Hyne (nature reserve and tidal lake) within easy driving distance and the fishing villages of Schull and Baltimore just a stones throw away there are a myriad of things to see and do. West Cork is famous for its food and hospitality.

There are numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from or if you prefer to eat in, catering is available here at the cottage on request. Sharon is a Ballymaloe trained cook and has been cooking professionally for nearly twenty years. We also offer cooking classes for weekends or longer.

Watersports available in the area include sailing, surfing, kayaking and diving. There is music in the local pubs, local festivals throughout the year including the Ballydehob International Jazz festival on the May bank holiday weekend and many theatre productions in all the towns and villages around.

Further details

We provide a welcome pack with all the basics and a few extras. A car is highly recommended as public transport is not well serviced. Catering is available in all forms: full board, B&B, freezer and fridge filling, baked goods etc. We have two large labrador/collie dogs that you can borrow for your walk. They are very child friendly. We also have two goats lucky and Dorey and of course two boys aged 10 and 12. Our house is adjacent to yours but is well screened off and your garden is not overlooked from any angle except by the cows next door!

Further details indoors

The house is on three levels, living area downstairs, master half a flight up and the other bedroom half a flight up again. Both double beds are 6ft pillowtop split super-kings and can be used as four singles. The sofa bed is a full sized single and is in the second bedroom (we do have a second sofa bed if required) The bedrooms are each about 350 sq ft and the bathrooms are very spacious.
The seating area has really comfortable couches including a corner unit with chaise for your feet. There is a Seseo coffee machine, (sachets provided) and we provide a welcome basket with all the basic essentials and a few treats. All linens are Egyptian cotton, there are two bath towels for each person, hand towels and bathmats in every bathroom, towels for the hot tub and spares just in case. There is a downstairs WC, and a hall entrance area with a bench seat, storage and shoe basket. The kitchen has a breakfast/cocktail bar underneath which are the large capacity washing machine and tumble dryer.

Further details outdoors

Outside there is a large private garden with terrace area, lawn, pond, veggie garden and eight person hot tub. The surroundings are rocky and between that and the pond we don't recommend the property to families with very small children. There is a large gas Weber BBQ and lots of very comfortable garden furniture in four areas, plus two adirondack chairs and two wooden steamer loungers. A new sunken garden area will be ready for summer 2013. Views from the hot tub are past the palm tree across the countryside to Roaring water bay in the distance. There is access to the sea via two picturesque piers and one pebble beach within a ten minute walk. Kilcoe Castle is at the end of the road. There is parking for three cars+.
