    “Cottage was in a beautiful coastal setting, very peaceful and was welcoming and cosy.”

    A great place to get away from it all and would definitely come back again and recommend to others.

The property

Courtmacsherry 3 miles.

This charming, coastal detached cottage is situated on the tip of Quarry Point, a tiny peninsula, close to the quaint village of Courtmacsherry in West Cork.

Boasting what can only be described as ‘out of this world’ views as far as the eye can see towards Kinsale’s Old Head and Lighthouse, this seaside cottage is the perfect choice for friends or small families looking for a scenic break, with an almost-deserted beach right on your doorstep.

The owners' have retained the seaside theme throughout, but have also lovingly furnished this cottage to provide you with quality and comfort during your Ireland holiday.

With a homely fitted kitchen, fully equipped for all your culinary masterpieces, and a cosy sitting area with an open fire for added warmth and comfort, you will be sure to relax and unwind.

Just off the sitting area is a bright and comfortable sun room, which is sure to be the most popular room of the cottage due to its superb views.

Three quirky bedrooms complete the accommodation, one of which is situated on the first floor mezzanine overlooking the sitting area.

Just a stone’s throw from your front door is the beach at Blind Strand and remains almost deserted so you can take a stroll with your loved one, go for a swim or simply chill out with your book.

The fishing village of Courtmacsherry is only a short drive away, a paradise for anglers with excellent fishing opportunities.

From Courtmacsherry, the popular towns of Kinsale and Clonakilty are within easy reach, bursting with charm and culture along with gourmet cuisine and welcoming traditional pubs.

Golf, sailing and watersports are just some of the attractions here in West Cork so come and discover this fantastic region for yourself!

About the location


Seven Heads 4 miles; Kinsale 17 miles.

The picturesque seaside village of Courtmacsherry lies between the Old Head of Kinsale and The Seven Heads Peninsula on the West Cork coast. The sheltered harbour provides lovely views over the bay, and the old smugglers’ cottages, which date back to the 18th century. The harbour and bay are a favoured spot for anglers, with seabass and flounder fishing available. Hike the 100m to the top of the Coolim Cliffs and take in the panoramic view of Barry's Point, Old Head, Seven Heads, and Dunworley Bay, a beach ideal for surfing, or try one of Courtmacsherry's restaurants and pubs. Take a trip up the Seven Heads Peninsula, ideal for walking and birdwatching, or enjoy a round of golf at the Old Head of Kinsale and Bandon Golf Club. A great location all year round.

Note: This property is suitable for children aged four years and over due to the spiral staircase to first floor and mezzanine level.
