The property

This delightful former farmhouse is situated in a quiet, peaceful position, 5 miles from Glengarriff, in County Cork. Situated on the Beara Peninsula, this cork cottage is only a mile from a small sandy beach, and provides good quality, character accommodation. With beds on both the ground and first floors, this Cork cottage is great for the whole family, and the wonderful solid fuel stove makes the living area a cosy, homelyheart of the house. This Cork cottage's elevated position means that guests can enjoy stunning views across Bantry Bay from the conservatory or the patio, so why not sit back with a drink and watch the world go by? Wander down to the small sandy beach and enjoy a picnic lunch, a splash in the sea or a spot of sunbathing; take a trip into Glengarriff and browse the shops or simply curl up with a good book in front of the solid fuel stove. This Cork cottage is a wonderfully peaceful retreat, all year round.
