Holiday Rental House
The Fish House, somewhere you can relax… and call home, is a pretty stone cottage (redecorated, carpetted and equipped in spring 2010) and has a beautiful country feel to it. Think Liscannor flag stonefloors, elm worktops, painted tongue and groove panelling, limewashed walls, irish country furniture and you’re nearly there. Add an eclectic mix of Morrocan wall hangings, Scottish orkney chairs, hurricane lamps, books and paintings, and we hope we’ve created somewhere you can really enjoy! Glance out the windows when the tide is high and it's like being on a boat with views of the water in most directions.

It's a place to watch wildlife go by or while away the hours with a good book. More

About the neighbourhood
Naturally enough given the proximity to the water – sailing, surfing, kayaking, diving are all a great way to pass the time here – courses for these can be taken locally. One special mention has to be night time kayaking – an absolutely wonderful experience for all abilities. Or take a more gentle approach on a coastal boat trip and watch dolphins and whales playing alongside as you take in the scenery. Golfing, fishing, horse riding, walking, archaeological trips, even dirt and quad biking make it onto the list! Pampering (well who says this has to be all about action!) – West Cork offers an amazing range of alternative therapy opportunities from yoga to belly dancing, tai chi to reiki, homeopathy to osteopathy, indian massage to seaweed treatments. Go home glowing! Food is a big thing ...
