The property

Located next to the owner’s holiday home is this delightful, semi-detached house, with the town of Skibbereen just six miles away. Well-furnished and tastefully-decorated throughout, this property is a great base for a family or group of friends to spend some time exploring the south west coast of Ireland, the perfect place to get away from it all. The property features two comfortable bedrooms on the first floor, along with a family shower room, proving plenty of space for your family holiday. The ground floor has a comfortable sitting room, the ideal place to curl up with a good book after enjoying a meal cooked in the well-equipped kitchen. The dining room boasts a warming solid fuel stove, so gather around the table at the end of a busy day and share your favourite memories. To the front of the property, sunny evenings can be spent having a family barbecue, enjoying the far-reaching countryside views. The town of Skibbereen is just a short drive from the cottage, where you can delve into Irish culture and sample the variety of pubs, restaurants and gift shops. Skibbereen is in a great location to explore the rugged scenery of the Wild Atlantic Way, taking one of the many varied coastal walks and enjoying the panoramic views on offer. West Cork offers a variety of activities in the area to suit all ages! Enjoy toured deep-sea angling from the port of Schull which caters for the amateur and experienced fisher. There is also an opportunity to go on moonlit kayaking or experience the some of the most rewarding snorkelling and diving in Ireland. With walking and cycling from the doorstep, and the bustling city of Cork a day trip away, there’s something for everyone. This cosy cottage is a fitting choice to explore this exciting region.
