The property

This wonderful terraced holiday apartment is located on Rock Island, in between the villages of Crookhaven and Goleen in West County Cork, and offers superb views over the sea. Converted from a coastguard station, this is one of several apartments in this location, and with accommodation over three floors it makes an ideal County Cork holiday base for a large group of family members or friends to enjoy a superb Irish getaway. The light and airy open plan living area in this Crookhaven holiday apartment will delight guests. You can cook up a treat in the attractive, well equipped kitchen whilst chatting to the rest of your party at the handily located dining table, or in the comfortable sitting area. After dinner, relax and unwind in front of the cosy open fire in your Crookhaven cottage, or for those warmer evenings, take advantage of the convenient patio doors and enjoy an alfresco drink whilst taking in the magical views over the bay. The sea air will get you in the mood for a day at the beach, and with a Blue Flag beach just a mile from your Crookhaven cottage at Barley Cove, you won't have to go far to satisfy your desire! Swim in the sea or sunbathe on the golden sands, or, if you fancy some sightseeing you'll be spoilt for choice with Mizen Head, Dunlough Castle and Skibbereen within easy reach. After a day of fun return to your Crookhaven holiday home and choose from one of the three comfortable bedrooms for a good night's sleep. Accessed by a quirky spiral staircase, the second floor family room offers a spacious area in which to rest and enjoy more beautiful coastal scenery. A great Crookhaven apartment, ideal for a coastal cottage holiday for all the family.
