Set at the heart of the quaint village of Ardgroom on the Beara Peninsula, lies this newly renovated and tastefully-decorated, four-bedroom holiday home, Shoemaker's Rest.
With superb access to a nearby pub and shop/deli, great on-site facilities, stunning countryside and river views, and well-presented, vibrant interiors, this property welcomes eight guests and one, small well-behaved dog for a relaxing, self-catered stay in southern Ireland.
Inside, make the most of your new home-from-home by setting up shop in the home's fully-equipped kitchen, where you'll find all the utensils and appliances you'll require to rustle up a delicious, home-cooked meal for the whole group to savour around the dining table, before you all settle down on the sofa to enjoy a film on the sleek, wall-mounted Smart TV whilst you're kept warm by a centrepiece woodburning stove.
When sleep calls, treat yourself to an indulgent bath before retiring to one of four, plush bedrooms, including an inviting king-size with accompanying en-suite shower - the perfect spot to refresh and unwind after a long, fun-filled day.
When you've finished your morning coffee on the rear patio whilst soaking in your surrounding scenic landscapes, explore your local area by strolling down to Harrington's Shop to stock up on essentials including a fully stocked off licence or take-away ready meals made by local artisan food producers if you don't fancy cooking one evening, before stopping for a pint at The Village inn, which also serves food in the summertime and is just a short walk from your dwelling.
