The property

This fabulous, detached Leap cottage is situated in Drinagh, 6 miles from Leap, County Cork. Thoughtfully furnished and decorated to a very high standard, this Leap cottage offers guests comfortable, contemporary accommodation just perfect for families and friends. Surrounded by rolling countryside, this Leap cottage is great for relaxing and unwinding at the end of a busy day, but being close to the popular towns of Dunmanway and Skibbereen, there is plenty to keep everybody occupied. The wonderfully large kitchen in this Leap cottage makes a fantastic place for everybody to gather together while cooking something tasty for tea, and after, the cosy sitting rooms beckon you in with warming fires and comfy sofas, the ideal way to end a magical day. Enjoy a relaxed late breakfast al fresco in the morning sun, overlooking the surrounding countryside, before embarking on another fun-filled day in Ireland.
