The property

With the water’s edge only a short walk away and the seaside destination of Allihies just 6.5 miles away, this wonderfully romantic semi-detached holiday cottage is idyllic. Situated on the Beara Peninsula and next to the owner’s home, this West Cork cottage has been lovingly decorated to provide guests with a comfortable and stylish base in a quiet and peaceful area. This Allihies cottage boasts two charming and immaculately-presented bedrooms, along with a small, fitted kitchen and dining area where wonderful culinary delights can be prepared and enjoyed. There is also a cosy and welcoming sitting room; the perfect place for retiring to after your meal to relax in front of the warming fire and discuss what is still to come on your Irish adventure! Set in this stunning area of Cork, with so much natural beauty on offer, this Allihies cottage also benefits from a shared front lawn and patio, with a raised area, and a rear, shared patio with furniture where guests can sit and relax in the evening sun whilst also taking in the wonderfully wild views. Just 200 yards from your Cork cottage is the water’s edge, meaning that for those who are fans of kayaking or fishing, this cottage is the perfect base. Allihies and the whole of the Beara Peninsula offers white sandy beaches, rugged seascapes and rolling mountains just waiting to be discovered by all outdoor enthusiasts. Meandering across the mountains is the Healy Pass; a path that can be enjoyed on foot, by car or by bike and offers spectacular views along the way and is something not to be missed. The charming and quaint villages of Kenmare and Glengarriff are both within a short drive and offer many delicious eateries, pubs and shops. From the Glengarriff harbour you can enjoy a boat trip to the gardens at Garnish Island and Kenmare can offer many traditional music sessions. It doesn’t matter if you’re after a holiday of relaxation and romance or peace and quiet on the sandy beaches, or perhaps even an action-packed break, this Allihies cottage is the perfect base to keep everyone happy.
