Lis-ardagh Cottages

Union Hall 0.5 miles. Situated next to the owners’ home and B&B and just half a mile from the picturesque village of Union Hall in west Cork are these two charming stone-built cottages. Each of these cottages has been lovingly decorated throughout and offer guests a welcoming and comfortable stay in this part of County Cork. Set in the owners’ grounds, guests can enjoy the well-manicured gardens before an alfresco dinner on the patio during sunny evenings. With a variety of flexible accommodation across these two cottages, they can cater for plenty of different party types, and there’s plenty to see and do in the region - you will be spoilt for choice! Why not enjoy a relaxed afternoon lunch in the harbour village of Glandore and watch the yachts and sailing boats drift in and out of Glandore Bay? Nearby, the vibrant, bustling market town of Skibbereen is waiting to be explored. Here you can visit the Heritage Centre, browse the weekly farmers’ market or sample a traditional Irish music session in one of the friendly pubs. Further afield the bright lights of Cork City await with a plethora of museums, shops, bars and restaurants to suit all tastes. For a truly relaxing and cultural break, these lovely cottages will certainly not disappoint.

The property

The cottage offers comfortable accommodation with thoughtful touches throughout, making it a homely base for small groups exploring the wonderful west of Ireland. The kitchen has a sociable dining area, and along with the sitting room, opens directly onto the patio area. Two bright bedrooms complete the accommodation, while outside, guests are welcome to enjoy the well-tended gardens or relax on the patio with a coffee before setting off on an adventure. The secluded little fishing village of Union Hall can be easily reached, where you can enjoy watersports on the quiet waters, uncover the area’s history with crumbling castle ruins scattered nearby, or wander along the bay, past the pretty pastel houses that line the harbour. Cross the causeway and head to Glandore, a popular port for sailing enthusiasts, where you can enjoy a refreshing drink or a fresh seafood delight in one of the bars set along the seafront. The market town of Skibbereen is just over ten minutes’ drive away where you can tour the town, perusing the charming shops set along the colourful high street. The cultural city of Cork can be reached in just over an hour’s drive, where you’ll find plenty of things to interest everyone, from galleries to the English Market where you’re certain to pick up some traditional Irish fare to take back to the cottage, or stop for a bite before heading home. This lovely little cottage is a wonderful retreat to return to after a busy day in beautiful County Cork. Note: This cottage is next to Ref. 920483, together they sleep 10.
