Holiday Rental House
A completely renovated farmhouse with panoramic views, located right next to the sea on the scenic Sheep's Head peninsula. Wateredge House enjoys extensive sea views, both from indoors and from the well-equipped terrace where the sunsets, especially, are breathtaking. The house is located on the seaward side of the Wild Atlantic Way where it first touches the sea on its journey round the Sheep's Head peninsula. You can enjoy catching some of West Cork's finest fish from the rocks at the bottom of the back garden. Formerly a farmhouse and National School, Wateredge House has been completely renovated and now provides three double bedrooms and one single bedroom. It is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The sitting room has an open fire, satellite television and a DVD player.

Formerly a farmhouse and National School, Wateredge House has been completely renovated and now provides three double bedrooms and one single bedroom. It is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The sitting room has an open fire, satellite television and a DVD player. The kitchen, if you can tear yourself away from the spectacular view, has a washing machine, electric cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave. The house also has oil-fired central heating. Ahakista, with its famous Tin Pub and the bar and restaurant at Arundels by the Pier, is about an hour and a half's walk or a little over a ten-minute drive away. A steep road a short way to the west of the house rises swiftly to 600 feet on its way to Durrus, which offers a range of places to eat and drink. Wateredge House is just 5 miles from the historic town of Bantry. Bantry has some of the finest restaurants in Cork, fishing trips, bicycle hire, 18 and 9 hole golf course, children's playground, leisure centre and many more activities. Some of the amazing local attractions close by are Bantry House and its beautiful gardens, Sheep's Head Way (45 miles of marked trail), boat trip to Whiddy Island, boat trip to Garnish island and exotic gardens. There are many scenic and beautiful local mountain walks / hiking trails around this peninsula that are a must see and do during your stay. More

How to get there
Your best option is to rent a car/own a car especially to see what West Cork has to offer. From Cork Airport it will take you approximately 1 hour and 15minutes driving. Another option would be to get the Citylink bus into Cork City and then the Cork to Bantry Bus (No 236), then a taxi to the house. From the train station you can get a bus into the city, hop on the Cork to Bantry bus (No 236) at the bus station and when you arrive in Bantry get a taxi to the house.
