    “Beautifully presented and equipped house with a wonderful mature garden that leads your eyes to spectacular views up green hills and on to the mountains.”

    The owners provide clear instructions on all the technical aspects of the house with illustrations - we loved this attention to detail. The linen is high quality and the towels are plentiful and fluffy. The beds are comfortable and the whole house really works well.

    The owners provide clear instructions on all the technical aspects of the house with illustrations - we loved this attention to detail. The linen is high quality and the towels are plentiful and fluffy. The beds are comfortable and the whole house really works well. We stayed for two weeks and liked it so much we came back for another four weeks while ewe waited for our own house purchase to complete. The TV features all the streamers and a great package of terrestrial programming and the wifi was fast enough for us to run Zoom and Teams meetings while streaming Netflix. The house is well located with three pubs, a cafe and convenience store within 2 minutes walk with a number of beautiful scenic walks accessible from the village. Highly recommend this house for couples or families.

The property

Enjoying rural views in Durrus, County Cork is 1 The Courtyard, a fabulous, three-bedroom home.

Within walking distance to a hub of local amenities, whilst featuring a delightful, mature garden, possible to hear the neighbouring river from, 1 The Courtyard offers a well-equipped base for six guests, also inviting a well-behaved, four-legged friend.

Be welcomed by off-road parking, before heading into your new abode, firstly reaching the handy utility room.

Store your muddy boots and coats before heading into the spacious kitchen, where you'll find all the appliances for a self-catered stay.

Prepare delicious meals in this space, to be enjoyed in the dining room, or head outdoors and through the garden, where you can enjoy an alfresco affair, enveloped by pretty blooms of Wisteria and mature shrubs.

Cosy up in the sitting room by lighting the solid-fuel stove, or watch the sun go down from the sunroom, before heading upstairs to catch some rest from one of the well-appointed bedrooms; select between two double bedrooms with en-suite showers, and a triple bunk room.

All are also serviced by a bathroom with an indulgent Jacuzzi bath, where you can soak after a day of exploring.

Once you're ready to tour the area, head into the village to stock up on the essentials, dine out and enjoy a tipple, with three inviting pubs to select from.

Beachgoers will enjoy the stunning landscapes of Shanvallybeg Beach and Ballyrisode Beach, both reachable by car, whilst history buffs will relish in the chance to explore Dunmanus Castle.

Upon the Wild Atlantic Way, take in the coastal views from Colla Pier, with the Colla Trail Head to follow for a clifftop vantage point.

Travelling north up to Glengariff, practise your swing at Glengarriff Golf Club (Club Gailf Gleann Garbh), or wildlife spot from Glengarriff Blue Pool (Linn Snámha Ghleann Garbh), before returning home for supper.

All of this awaits, and more, at 1 The Courtyard.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of €350.

About the location

DURRUS, COUNTY CORK

Bantry 10 miles; Glengariff 17 miles; Skibereen 16 miles.

Durrus is a village located at the head of Dunmanus Bay on what is called the Friendly Cove, on one of the most unspoilt coasts in Ireland, in West Cork, six miles from Bantry in County Cork. The village is the gateway to the Sheep's Head and Mizen Head peninsulas, a haven for walkers, hikers and cyclists, showcasing some of the most beautiful and spectacular scenery that Ireland has to offer. Durrus has recently been announced as a key staging post on the new Wild Atlantic Way driving route which will help tourists to explore the Irish coastline from the Inishowen peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in County Cork. There are a number of public gardens established in the area, including Cois Abhann and Kilvarock. Durrus also benefits from a good selection of pubs, restaurants and cafes offering excellent food and traditional music through the year. Bantry is just a 20 minute drive away, and is a town of sweeping sea views and varied colourful buildings. It is home to a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants ideal for dining out or for experiencing local Irish music and culture. Bantry House is well worth a visit, sitting in an elevated position above the town and being home to a rich collection of tapestries, furniture and art, while there are also beautiful gardens to explore, which have been restored and are open to the public.
