Bantry, County Cork
Laharandota was thoroughly and thoughtfully restored in 2008 from an existing farm complex built from local stone. Comprising a detached cottage, garage/outbuilding with utilities, an old stone loft/barn (The Studio) and a green house, the property enjoys spectacular views over Dunmanus Bay and the West Cork countryside. Many original features have been retained to create a unique and peaceful atmosphere which compliments the surrounding land and sea. This beautiful detached cottage and barn are nestled on the hillside, surrounded by a large, mature garden with wonderful sea views.

Inside the Cottage there are three bedrooms (with king, twin and single beds),family bathroom and en suite shower room to the master bedroom upstairs. Downstairs there's a large open-plan kitchen/living room with open fire, leather sofa and armchair an...

The Rayburn adds to the charm...

This is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in one of the most beautiful places. Everything is thought of in the cottage- beautifully comfy beds with White Company bedding, amazing art around the cottage, a lovely turf open fire and a homely Rayburn to cook on. Julie went out of her way to look after us- we...
