    “We had a very good week at Brook cottage which had all the equipment and facilities we needed plus they accepted a well behaved dog.”

    We would recommend it and would stay here again. ...

    We would recommend it and would stay here again. We were rather nervous about the front door blowing shut and locking us out and had to be very mindful of the key (which is no bad thing) but when loading/unloading the car it would be helpful to be able to put it on the latch. We were very surprised at the poor quality of the coat hangers ! That might sound picky but they really were awful and we had to bend many of the wire ones back into shape in order to hang our clothes and the plastic ones generally seemed more sized to children's clothing so we hope they heed the feedback and provide some better ones - it let the rest of the cottage down. Otherwise we really enjoyed the cottage and its 'wilderness garden' and it was handy for everything. In Courtmacsherry we can recommend the Lifeboat Inn for meals and also fresh fish and chips from The Lobster's Tale. Further afield round the estuary the Pink Elephant at Kilbrittain provides meals with the most stunning views. We food shopped at the brilliant Scally's in Clonakilty - best supermarket in the world ! Lovely area - lovely people.

The property

This bright and airy, homely, detached cottage is set just outside Courtmacsherry in County Cork.

Overlooking the charming little seaside village, this Courtmacsherry cottage is a wonderful base for friends and families exploring this area of Ireland.

This Cork cottage features upside down accommodation with two bedrooms and a family bathroom on the ground floor, and upstairs, an open plan living area with a kitchen, a dining area and a sitting area.

In the summer there are three different outdoors areas to choose to relax in, a first floor balcony to the front of this Courtmacsherry cottage enjoying views of boats moored in the bay, a rear decked area, and a patio with a stream where you can enjoy alfresco dining.

A short walk away from this delightful Cork cottage, Courtmacsherry has a delightful selection of shops and pubs, and a beach ideal for surfing and swimming when the weather is warm.

Why not enjoy a romantic stroll hand in hand along the shoreline on starry nights?

This Courtmacsherry cottage is nestled between Old Head and the Seven Heads Peninsula, ever popular with anglers and birdwatchers, and of course a haven for walkers and cyclists due to its beautiful scenery.

Visit the town of Clonakilty, an easy drive away, alive with delicious gourmet restaurants and cafes, live traditional Irish music, and the Michael Collins Museum.

Spend your days exploring the many attractions this area has to offer including Timoleauge Abbey, the Galley Head Lighthouse Station, and the marvellous collection of golf courses dotted across this wonderful county, including the Old Head Golf Links at Kinsale.

There are so many wonderful Blue Flag beaches snaked along this stretch of coastline that when the sun is shining, you’ll be stuck for choice but Inchydoney is one of the most family friendly beaches in West Cork.

A fabulous base for a fun-filled family holiday exploring County Cork, all year round!
