    We hired this cottage through Sykes cottages for one week starting June 29th 2019. Easy to find after visiting Blarney castle and gardens, the cottage is the old gatehouse at the beginning of a long drive that leads up to the main Cannaway House. Very friendly welcome in collecting the keys at the house, the proprietor then came down to the lodge and showed us the 'in's and out's' and also the invitation to come up to the main house and have full use fo the games room and enjoy a drink form the bar, this we did. Delightful open plan dining/sitting and kitchen area, very large bedrooms all en suite and the appropriate facilities. Perfect location, quiet, fantastic views of the countryside and easy to traverse local lanes and short drive to main routes. We used local eateries/shops in Macroom(5 miles), Coachford(2 miles), and this was our base for exploring County Cork and Kerry and a trip up to Ennis and the Irish Open golf at Lahinch. Wonderful Irish cottage and hospitality, thank you to all concerned.

About the location


Macroom 4.4 miles; Cork 19 miles; Killarney 33 miles.

Carrigadrohid is a village in County Cork and is placed on the north bank of the River Lee. The village is home to a shop and pub and also to Carrigadrohid Castle built in the 15th century by the MacCarthys of Muskerry. Nearby is the small market town of Macroom nestled in the picturesque valley of the Sullane River and is dominated by the walls of Macroom Castle. This bustling town offers a choice of shops, restaurants and pubs, three hotels and still holds a twice weekly street market. One of Macroom's best kept secrets, Castle Demesne, is set amidst hundreds of acres of mystical woodland, awash with secluded riverside walks and stunning, panoramic views of the town, while three miles from Macroom lie western Europe's only extensive remains of Alluvial Forest. Carrigaphooca Castle, stood on an outcrop of rock, high above the trees is worth a visit, while the fabulous cities of Cork and Killarney are within easy touring distance, as are the stunning beaches of West Cork.
