The property

This is a charming, semi-detached cottage set near the market town of Skibbereen, West Cork and benefiting from beautiful views over Tragumna beach. With traditional style throughout, this cottage near Skibbereen is full of character and is a wonderful base in this desirable part of Cork for a seaside break for couples or small families. Still benefiting from the original features of this traditional building, there are two well-presented bedrooms and a bright and airy open plan living area with a fitted kitchen for preparing your delicious evening meals, a dining area for enjoying your meal together with your group and a sitting area with a warming open fire, perfect for relaxing in after enjoying your well-prepared meal. Guests to this Cork cottage can enjoy wonderful views over the sea from the front, lawned area which is shared with neighbouring cottages. This is a lovely spot for sitting of an evening and listening to the sounds of the crashing waves in the bay below or for the children to play during the day. Why not enjoy the ten minute stroll and venture down to Tragumna beach and enjoy a picnic? Alternatively, why not enjoy one of the many walking routes that are nearby and offer fantastic views. A variety of shops, pubs and restaurants can be found, just a short drive away in the colourful town of Skibbereen and there are also many interesting attractions to visit, including the West Cork Arts Centre and the Skibbereen Heritage Centre. A short drive will also bring you to the attractive harbour village of Glandore where visitors can take the weight off and relax outside a seafront pub, admiring the boats on the water. Hiking, pedal boating, watersports and many more activities can be easily sought in this fantastic area so guests can have fun finding their new hobby. Whatever it is that you decide to do on your Skibbereen holiday, you'll be sure to have a wonderful time, whatever the time of year.
