From the owner

Luxury on the Wild Atlantic Way, West Cork.

Originally built in 1771 for Colonel George Sandes the house was famously the home for 30 years of Noel Redding, bass guitarist for The Jimi Hendrix Experience and Clonakilty music hero. Over the last number of years it has been lovingly renovated and restored to its former glory and with many reminders of its illustrious past still on view.

Dunowen House is in the unspoilt village of Ardfield, with secluded Sands Cove private beach 5 minutes walk from the door and close to magnificent Galley Head lighthouse. The bustling market town of Clonakilty is only 5km away, with Kinsale a 45 minute drive to the east and Bantry the same distance to the west.

Dunowen is perfectly located to explore all that magnificent West Cork has to offer including the Wild Atlantic Way, golfing, surfing, fishing, whale watching, birdwatching, horse riding, sailing, wind surfing and kayaking.

With over 5000 sq ft of living space the property offers 3 reception rooms, a fully fitted kitchen/dining area and a music/entertainment room. Upstairs there are 6 large bedrooms all with stunning en-suite bathrooms which will comfortably sleep 18 people but will also suit smaller groups.Bedroom 1 - 1 king 2 singlesBedroom 2 - 1 king (the bridal suite !!)Bedroom 3 - 1 superking 4 poster bedBedroom 4 - 1 king 1 singleBedroom 5 - 1 double 1 single (in annex)Bedroom 6 - 1 king 1 single.

Cots are also available on request.Weekend rates are available (except for June July and August)And if you really want to spoil yourselves and take the "self" out of self-catering and let us cook lunch or dinner - or to give you lessons on how to do so !!
