The property

Located near the village of Ballymacoda in East Cork, is this delightful mid- terrace cottage. The cottage overlooks the sandy beach at Ring and was previously the residence of the coastguard. Boasting glorious sea views across the bay towards Youghal, this cosy well-decorated cottage has been comfortably furnished and is ideal for couples or small groups looking for a relaxing break away. On the ground floor there is a well-equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar and a pleasant sitting room with dining area and cosy multi-fuel stove, the perfect place to curl up with a good book after a busy day out. Upstairs are three comfy bedrooms ensuring a good night’s sleep for everyone. The charming front garden at the cottage is perfect to breathe in the fresh sea air and relax in the sunshine. A mussel farm lies in the neighbouring bay and you may even get to sample some of them, if you ask the farmers nicely. The small village of Ballymacoda offers a shop and a pub and is a great base from which to explore East Cork and the South East of Ireland. Nearby is the seaside town of Youghal with its selection of traditional pubs and restaurants, sandy beaches and golf course.
