The property

Courtmacsherry 3 miles. For a real away-from-it-all experience, look no further than Lighthouse View. This detached cottage perches at the very tip of Quarry Point, a tiny peninsula of land jutting out into the ocean just a few miles from the quaint village of Courtmacsherry in County Cork. This coastal cottage offers fabulous views over ever-changing waters, towards Kinsale’s Old Head and lighthouse, and families will love exploring the near-deserted beach which is right on your doorstep. The coastal theme is retained throughout the interior of the cottage, which offers comfortable and welcoming accommodation. From the well-equipped kitchen to the sitting area with open fire, the sun room with woodburner to the three restful bedrooms, one tucked away on a mezzanine overlooking the sitting area, Lighthouse View is sure to please when it welcomes you home after a day out exploring the region. Perhaps you have explored Courtmacsherry and enjoyed some of the great angling on offer. Or maybe you took full advantage of the traditional pubs and gourmet cuisine of Kinsale and Clonakilty. A day spent on Blind Strand, just next to the cottage, is sure to be on the cards during your stay, while golf, sailing and watersports can also be enjoyed during your time at Lighthouse View. However you have spent your time here in West Cork, there can be no better spot to return to than this comfy retreat, to settle down in front of the woodburner in the sun room and watch the evening sun glinting off the ocean waves far off into the horizon.
