Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

County Cork is situated in the South West of Ireland. It is the largest of all the Irish counties and is located within Munster. The capital of Cork is Cork City (population 28,639). Attractions of the county include the Blarney Stone in Blarney Castle, the port of Cobh (departing port of the Titanic) and point of emigration for many fleeing the famine; sailing and fishing at Kinsale; fishing on the Blackwater River; Fota Island wild life park; and many golf courses.

West Cork is more rugged than the rich farmlands in the east of Cork. There is a magnificent coastline of rugged natural beauty with many rocky headlands and sandy coves, also long sandy beaches and dozens of small islands including the Island of Cape Clear which remains a Gaeltacht area (Irish language speaking) approximately 8 miles out to sea from Schull - particularly popular with bird watchers in Spring and Autumn. The Fastnet Rock and lighthouse is also located 3 miles southwest of Cape Clear. Good golf clubs abound (Cork City, Fota Island, Bandon, Skibbereen, Bantry Bay, Old Head of Kinsale).

Schull

Schull is one of the loveliest villages in West Cork, Ireland. It is set in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty with outcrops of granite rock juxtaposed with rolling grassy hillsides full of gorse and wild flowers. The highest point in West Cork is Mount Gabriel which rises directly behind Schull from which there are magnificent views over Schull Harbour, beyond to all the islands in Roaring Water Bay, beyond to Baltimore and out to Cape Clear and the Fastnet Rock. Schull is almost as far southwest as you can be in Ireland - just 10 miles or so from the most south-westerly point of Ireland at Mizen Head. The climate is extremely mild with prevailing southwesterly winds and the benign effects of the Gulf Stream. The air is marvellously clear and clean.

Schull boasts a large safe and welcoming harbour, with many islands off-shore (including Sherkin Island, Hare Island and Cape Clear) and the Atlantic Ocean beyond providing an excellent base for water sports especially sailing which is particularly popular during "Calves Week" - a week of regattas held each year usually in the first week of August. There is also golf, tennis, pony trekking, a planetarium, fine restaurants, several welcoming pubs (often with music), a weekly Country Market and a peninsula rich in archaeology and fauna. It is wonderful area for walking and cycling and excellent for holidays whatever the time of year. Most times of the year Schull is very quiet but it becomes a thronging and bustling town partcularly in late July/Aug and at Easter, Christmas and New Year.

Local boat hire (sailing/wind-sailing/fishing/kayak); scuba diving school; boat trips to Cape Clear (including whale watching) and to the Fastnet Rock.

Nearby golfclubs: Skibbereen; Bantry Bay; and Glengarriff - c 30-45 mins away by car.

Popular beaches - Ballyrizode, Toormore Bay, Crookhaven, Barley Cove.

Popular nearby attractions - Bantry House and Gardens; Skibbereen Heritage Centre; Mizen Head lighthouse and visitor centre; Lough Hyne; Cape Clear island; whale watching; Fastnet Rock boat trips

Generally a great place to relax and unwind.

“Perfection”

Reviewed 2 May 2017

Cannot say enough about this house. It was perfect. We had adults and 4 kids with us. Location was amazing,view from the house amazing and the house itself was spotless,cosy,and great facilities. I would 100% recommend anyone to visit. It's so close to everything and schull itself is a beautiful place to visit. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

“Do it, Do it, Do it.”

Reviewed 7 Aug 2013

OK, so after literally weeks of on-line hunting for the perfect family vacation with 4 young children (ages 7-14), I contacted an Irish friend who recommended SW Ireland in general and Schull in particular. As my wife's and my own ancestry are from County Cork- it seemed to fit. Being the savvy Trip Advisor type, I looked for favorable family reviews for a self catering house suitable for 6, in a small town, close to the water and beaches, within walking distance to the pubs and restaurants with lots to hold the fascination for the kids and yet places for QT for Mom and Dad. I found 11 Costal Cottage and seemed to fit the bill, so we booked with high expectations. Happy to say the place delivered and then some! The house is not detached but I thought and rightfully so, that there would be other vacationers with kids occupying the row and sure enough, all four found Irish mates to play with and make the vacation not only fun, but a cultural experience as well. All our neighbors were regulars from Dublin or the north... some visiting for over a decade which is probably enough of an endorsement right there. But the house has all the amenities and is location 4 meters from the harbor cannot be beat. Slept better than I have in years. The town is perfect- we went fishing, exploring outer islands, fed seals off the landing out back, visited the planetarium, went horse trekking, visited the cinema in Bantry, and hit the fantastic beach at Barely Cove, and took day trip to Blarney and Jamesons distillery. My wife and I very much enjoyed the cuisine which we found incredibly diverse and enjoyable for such a remote spot. From Tapas to French Seafood, Pub fare to Chinese- you can try a different and comely restaurant every night and not visit the same one twice. I know, we did. Only regret is booking just a week (vice two like all our neighbors). The value is there. Note: I booked the place not realizing there was no standing wifi or TV. The owner worked with me to address the WIFI issue and the lack of Sat TV turned out to be a welcome benefit as it absolutely forced the kids outside. There is a TY/DVD stereo and rentals in town, but we had fantastic weather so only watched 1 movie. Otherwise it was bistro, explore/fish/hike/beach etc, read, then dinner, then meet neighbors at Hacketts for a Pint. In a word- Perfect...
