This excellent detached bungalow is set on the Beara Peninsula, next to the owner's home, and boasts incredible views. Situated three miles from Eyeries in County Cork, in tranquil countryside, this is an ideal retreat, perfect for those looking to get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life. This single-storey property has a warming solid fuel stove, ideal for relaxing in front of after a busy day, before retiring to one of the four comfy bedrooms to dream of what adventures are still to come. There is also a kitchen that is well equipped, great for preparing tasty meals to enjoy in the dining area, whilst taking in the views of the stunning mountain scenery. When the sun is shining, guests can make good use of the conservatory, or, alternatively, can enjoy an alfresco meal, perhaps a sizzling barbecue, along with a cold drink. The delightful town of Eyeries is close by and is ideal for getting to know the locals in the traditional pubs. Walkers will love exploring the well-known Beara Way that passes nearby to Eyeries. There are two joining points in the village, so why not pull on your walking boots and enjoy? The town of Kenmare is also within easy reach and is full of charisma and charm, with restaurants to sample and farmers' markets to enjoy.
