The property

Settled in a peaceful location in Ballmacoda, County Cork is this characterful, single-storey cottage, Kevin’s Cottage.

Benefitting from off-road parking, all ground-floor accommodation and a spacious garden, Kevin’s Cottage welcomes up to five guests guests, perfect for a family or group of friends seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Upon entering, be impressed by the well-adorned open-plan living space, housing a well-equipped kitchen with all the necessary appliances guaranteed to ease your self-catered stay, a dining space and sitting area with woodburning stove and Smart TV, so you can enjoy all your home comforts.

Allow the budding chef to rustle up a tasty homecooked meal before venturing outside to delight in an alfresco affair, toasting to a wonderful getaway over a cold glass of fizz; pass the time planning your itinerary or stargaze the evening away prior to treating yourself to a warm shower and completing your evening routine.

When sleep calls, choose between two charming king-size bedrooms, one with the extra option of a trundle bed, each neatly-presented with plenty of storage to house your personal belongings, the perfect spot to unwind and drift off.

In the morning, embark on a picturesque stroll along Barry’s Cove Walk, boasting magnificent views of the expansive coastline and Capel Island and Knockadoon.

Pay a visit to Ring Strand which is only a short 5 minute stroll from the cottage, where you can while away the days relaxing upon the sandy trails, paddling the shores, or getting lost in a good book, before refuelling with some traditional fish and chips at The Chippy Cottage.

There is also a fish and chip van at Knockadoon Pier called the Lobster Pot which is very popular with visitors after completing the Knockadoon Cliff Walk or with kids after jumping in off the pier.

if you prefer something more sophisticated, head to the seaside resort town of Youghal, home to several fantastic restaurants including Table 8 Bistro and Clancy’s Bar and Restaurant.

Further afield, discover Ballyannan Castle, Ballyannan Woods – Midleton Forest and Fota Wildlife Park, in addition to the popular city of Cork, where you can uncover the delights of Cork Opera House, Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral and Cork City Gaol, guaranteeing a fascinating day out.

However you choose to fill your days here in Ireland, do it from the superb base of Kevin’s Cottage.
