Description

The Blue Gate, Ardagh, Church Cross, Skibereen, West Cork.Set in the magical landscape of West Cork in the town land of Church Cross, the Blue Gate Cottage nestles snugly into a mostly organic farming community.(Madeline McKeever of brown Envelope Seeds is a close neighbour) But yet the cottage also faces the sea and has stunning views towards Ringaroga Island, Baltimore Bay and Sherkin Island.A scenic 1 mile(1.6km) walk through undulating landscape will take you to Turk Head pier known as a cusheen(little pier) where local fishermen access the rich fishing grounds around some of West Cork's 100 islands. 1 mile in the other direction from the house will bring you to Minihan's pub and like the cusheen, it's a little pub which packs a mighty punch, where on certain nights you can while away a couple of hours listening to traditional music and singing. On a summers evening it's a good recommendation to start here for pre dinner drinks-it has one of the best views from

On a summers evening it's a good recommendation to start here for pre dinner drinks-it has one of the best views from its beer garden of Kilcoe castle(belonging to the actor Jeremy Irons) then head to Cunnamore Pier for the 8 o clock ferry to Heir Island for John Desmond and Ellmarie Fenton's Island Cottage restaurant. This unique restaurant is open mid- June to mid-September and highly advisable to book well in advance to avoid disappointment.At the time of writing this, Island Cottage restaurant has just announced extended opening times for Saturday and Sunday late lunch in April, May and June. Another restaurant which will be open for the summer season is The Custom House run by Ian Parr and Sue Holland who are returning from France.It is also highly recommended. West Cork has a wealth of artisan food producers, artists and crafts people all with easy reach of The Blue Gate Cottage.At the end of an event packed day the cottage offers a comfortable retreat with every modern convenience to make for a truly enjoyable getaway.
