The property

This stone-built detached cottage is set down a country lane overlooking the inlet leading to the Green Flag, sandy beach of Ballyrisode, a 3 minutes drive away, and is close to the rural village of Goleen on the Mizen Peninsula of West Cork. This comfortable and cosy cottage is a fantastic place to stay for guests looking to enjoy exploring this beautiful part of Ireland. With a traditional layout made up of a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with an open fire, this quaint cottage is an ideal homely base. Completing the accommodation are two first floor bedrooms. Why not sit out in the front, secluded garden and enjoy a relaxing glass of wine while the children play safely? Nearby there is a selection of pubs, a café and a local shop in the village of Goleen. A little further afield you can find the most south-westerly point of Ireland at Mizen Head, where you can visit the historic signal station, heritage centre and maritime museum. Just a fifteen minute drive away is the harbour village of Schull, home to a selection of shops and pubs. This charming village is the perfect place to spend some time shopping the local market, browsing the interesting books and maybe lazing away the afternoon on a sailboat. With glorious coastal scenery and rich marine life, this region of Ireland is full of culture and the local, fresh seafood at the heart of most eateries is second to none. Why not get on your bike and discover the Wild Atlantic Way, dotted with beautiful harbours and secluded inlets and bays? Then you can go island hopping, before finishing your day in a cosy pub with a pint of Guinness. This is a magical part of Ireland that won’t disappoint!
