    “Superb This was a late booking to visit family in the local area.”

    The pictures do not do this lovely cottage justice. There are three large bedrooms (very comfy) and a fantastic bathroom upstairs, loads of hanging and storage areas in the rooms and in the under eaves areas. The open plan kitchen/diner and lounge is both large and comfortable.

    The pictures do not do this lovely cottage justice. There are three large bedrooms (very comfy) and a fantastic bathroom upstairs, loads of hanging and storage areas in the rooms and in the under eaves areas. The open plan kitchen/diner and lounge is both large and comfortable. The kitchen includes everything you will need, modern, loads of worktop for the keen chefs out there, large fridge and completely separate freezer. Separate utility area houses the washing machine and leads to a very large second bathroom with walk in shower/wet room and toilet. Outside there is plenty of space for chilling out with rattan style furniture and benches and a large covered area at the rear of the cottage for washing (i left my bike under there). Wifi was good speed which was a bonus as I had to work remotely whilst there. To enter the property there is an electronic gate and gravel drive which all felt grand. We spent a week here and Claire was available to help with any queries but otherwise left us to do our own thing. I can honestly say that we would go back tomorrow if we could, great location for exploring the area, close to Bantry for shops, petrol etc. You will not be disappointed

The property

This pretty detached cottage is set next to the owner’s property, 1.5 miles from the village of Kealkill in West Cork.

Being an easy drive from the popular seaside town of Bantry in West Cork, this is an ideal property from which to explore all that the South West of Ireland has to offer.

This attractive cottage boasts a large open plan living area enabling everyone to be together to plan the day’s activities and ensures even the chef of the party can join in with discussing the highlights of the day whilst preparing a scrumptious evening meal.

The comfortable sitting room with its solid fuel stove is perfect for warming your toes after a busy day out or curling up and watching a film together.

Upstairs the three comfortable bedrooms ensure a good night’s sleep.

Outside, with the sun shining, you can sit with a refreshing drink as the children enjoy running off their excess energy on the lawn.

The nearby village of Kealkill has everything for your basic needs and Bantry, with its range of shops, pubs and restaurants, is just a short drive away.

Why not visit the farmers’ market held weekly in Bantry and sample some of the wonderful local produce on offer.

The nearby golf club has a USGA standard designed course by Christy O'Connor Junior and Eddie Hackett which is perfect for practising your swing on.

With spectacular scenery and the Wild Atlantic Way nearby, you’ll be spoilt for choice.

A little further afield are Kenmare, Skibbereen and the Beara Peninsula and even the Ring of Kerry is waiting to be discovered.

This countryside cottage is perfect for a peaceful holiday.
