The property

This welcoming semi-detached cottage is part of an old farmstead of three cottages, next to the owner’s cottage situated between the popular fishing village of Baltimore and Lough Hyne in West Cork. An ideal base for a romantic getaway, this delightful cottage provides cosy accommodation for exploring the area. Upon entering this holiday home you will find an open plan living area with a cathedral style ceiling and a small kitchen, dining area and a sitting area from where you can enjoy the sea views through the full height windows. Also on the ground floor is a bathroom, and the only room upstairs is a galleried double bedroom. On a fine day, why not relax in the garden where you can enjoy the sea views towards the islands of the Roaring Water Bay and Mizen Head? There are walks, both country and coastal from the cottage, and close by the town of Baltimore, which boasts coastal scenery. Attractions in the area include regular ferries to Sherkin Island and Cape Clear, Lough Hyne, Ireland’s first marine nature reserve, the Wild Atlantic Way and the market town of Skibbereen, Clonakilty and Bantry, plus activities to enjoy consist of deep sea fishing, kayaking and whale watching. A charming cottage with plenty to see and do in the area.
