    “I stayed at Ballyvoreen for 3 weeks in October / November for some quiet solitude time and had a lovely stay.”

    What this listing fails to tell you though, is that there is also a farmhouse on the same grounds. Midway through my stay, a family came to stay in the farmhouse for a week, which I was not expecting. This wasn’t particularly problematic, but I would’ve liked to have known in advance.

    What this listing fails to tell you though, is that there is also a farmhouse on the same grounds. Midway through my stay, a family came to stay in the farmhouse for a week, which I was not expecting. This wasn’t particularly problematic, but I would’ve liked to have known in advance. The cottage itself is very warm and comfortable and while I could have done with a bit more kitchenware for cooking, the place had everything I needed. The twin tub was a bit cumbersome for washing laundry, but I managed and if you are staying for a short time, you probably won’t need it. Jim (who was looking after the place during my stay) was very friendly and helpful with anything I needed. I didn’t have a vehicle, so getting around was more difficult, but not impossible. It meant I stayed local and found some beautiful walks in the immediate locality and got to know some of the neighbours! Have a good pair of boots and wellies to hand if that’s what you want to do. All in all a place I would recommend to stay.

The property

This lovely holiday cottage boasts sea views and a view of Galley Head Lighthouse, 2.5 miles from the harbour village of Glandore, on the south coast of Ireland in County Cork.

This property is an ideal base to getaway from everyday life and is perfect for a family or small group of friends who wish to explore this part of the Emerald Isle.

Set all on the ground floor, this holiday home has a double bedroom, a bunk bedroom and a bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC.

There’s also an open plan living area with a kitchen, perfect for rustling up a picnic, a dining area and a sitting area with a cosy solid fuel stove, a great place to relax after a busy day.

On a sunny day, why not open the patio doors and sit in the lawned garden whilst sipping on a cold drink?

The quiet village of Glandore is nearby and is home to a small harbour and a selection of pubs.

Close by is the Drombeg stone circle and Coppingers Court or you wish to head to Tralong Beach and Mill Cove.

A little further afield is the town of Skibbereen with its beautiful sandy beaches, and within reach are Cork city, Kinsale, Baltimore and you can kiss the Blarney Stone.

A charming cottage with plenty to see and do in the area.

About the location

GLANDORE, COUNTY CORK

Union Hall 2 miles; Rosscarbery 5 miles; Skibbereen 8 miles; Cork Airport 33 miles.

Situated in West Cork, in an area of stunning coastal scenery, Glandore (Gaelic translation - Harbour of the Oaks), is acclaimed as one of the prettiest villages in Ireland, and occupies a superb setting at the head of a spectacular natural wooded harbour. The area has a mild year-round climate, generated by the Gulf Stream ocean current. Glandore has pubs and three restaurants, whilst the nearby fishing village of Union Hall provides further amenities and a large fishing fleet; boats arrive daily with fresh catches of seafood, which can be enjoyed in all the local restaurants. Both Glandore and Union Hall have delightful, sheltered harbours with year-round water activities including sailing, sea angling, whale watching and rowing regattas. Golf can be enjoyed at Skibbereen, Clonakilty and Bantry, while sandy Blue Flag beaches can be found at Inchydoney, Rosscarbery and Tragumna.
