The property

Enjoying breath-taking, panoramic views over Dunmanas Bay in Ahakista near Kilcrohane, County Cork is Whispering Pines, a fabulous, five-bedroom home.

Resting upon the Sheep's Head Peninsula, enveloped by coastal vistas and nature-filled walking and cycling trails, Whispering Pines offers a large abode for a family of ten, looking for a rural escape with their furry companion.

Benefit from a sweeping, private driveway, before unloading your belongings and heading indoors.

Make your way into the spacious kitchen/diner, complete with state-of-the-art appliances to ease your self-catered stay, and a dining table for ten guests, perfect for formal mealtimes.

If you'd prefer an alfresco affair, take advantage of the tranquil, outdoor space encompassing the home, where you can light the barbecue and bask in your surroundings as the sun shines over West Cork.

On cooler evenings, light the stove in the sitting room and cosy up ready for a film night upon the Smart TV, before sloping off to sleep in one of five, well-appointed bedrooms; select between two king-size rooms, one benefitting from an en-suite, and three twin bedrooms.

Refresh in either of the bathrooms, both complete with a bath and a shower, before enjoying your morning coffee in the sunroom, taking in your stunning location.

Once you're ready to explore, travel on foot to the Arundels Bar by the Pier for a bite to eat, whilst further amenities lie in Kilcrohane.

Outdoor enthusiasts will relish in the chance to follow the Sheep’s Head Way trail, kayak, or horse ride across the countryside, whilst creative members of your group will enjoy visiting the Heron’s Gallery and Gardens, home to local pottery crafts.

About the location


Bantry 15 miles.

The lively and vibrant village of Kilcrohane is located south west of Durrus as you head towards the end of the Sheep's Head Peninsula, in County Cork. The village takes its name from the Church of St. Crohan founded in the 8th century. The crystal clear waters at the coast of Kilcrohane are exceptional, and provide a great place to swim and explore all of the hidden caves dotted about, while those who prefer to stay on land can enjoy the Sheep’s Head Way and traverse some of its 60 miles of trails. As well as fantastic land and sea scenery, Kilcrohane also has a wonderful traditional music scene, and plays host to the music festival Ceoil on the Coast each year, so no matter what you’re looking for on your Irish getaway, Kilcrohane has something for everyone!
