Holiday Rental House
Westerly House is a very special property. Recently it has been lovingly restored to its former glory and it is now a bright, welcoming and beautifully furnished home - perfect for a large family get together or for a vacation with friends. It is possibly one of the only vacation homes in Ireland with kayaks provided for guests use (small fee). This home is literally set on the shores of Bantry Bay yet is perfectly positioned to be a great base for exploring the entire West Cork region. We look forward to welcoming you....
