Holiday Rental House
This property is an unusual type of house, built as an octagonal one room living space, it has recently been completely renovated and a big bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and a bathroom with toilet and power-shower have been added. The original house contains a large modern kitchen, a big bright eating area and a comfortable place where you can sit and relax on a couch in front of the fireplace. in the centre of the building is the chimney with a new stove that can warm up the whole place even in winter and lets you feel at home anytime. This place would be ideal for 2 - 3 adults, with one big double bed in the bedroom, and the couch (easy to be converted into a 4ft sofa bed). From the main door and the bedroom you have access to the outdoor sitting area and the garden.

Sorry, no pets in the cottage The Neighbourhood Decide to stay here ! you will enjoy your privacy in this place, yet Bantry is only 5 km away, a lovely irish town with well known Bantry House, many festivals during the year, a big market every Friday, pubs, restaurants, a ferry to Whiddy Island and more. Getting Around From here you can make daytrips to the beautiful, yet not well known Beara Peninsula, or you choose the Sheeps Head route with its well known public walking ways, the Mizen Head with its lighthouse and nearby gorgeous sand strand at Barley Cove. KInsale, Skibbereen, Baltimore and Schull are smaller or bigger towns near or at the sea well worth a visit. You also might decide to travel to Glengarriff with the gardens on Garnish Island, or a bit farther to the town of Kenmare or visit Killarney and its lakes. From all trips you can come home anytime and enjoy your beautiful cottage. Rent a bike If you wish, 2 bicycles are available to explore this beautiful area Horses and riding A special note for horse lovers: we own and breed horses, our daughter is an experienced riding instructor and well schooled horses and ponies are available for a hack in the beautiful Mealagh Valley or for a lesson indoors or outdoors, for beginners or advanced riders, More

The cottage is close enough to small towns that you can get everything you need but far enough away that you get the peace and tranquillity you are looking for! The owners are so kind and helpful and their property is absolutely beautiful!!! Of Ireland...More

Just a few minutes by car outside Bantry, Urs and Rosie's cottage is bright and modern but cosy and cute, with windows looking out onto their property from all angles. There are no great vistas, but each window frames bright foliage, and the peace and...More

We had a great stay in this lovely cottage. Regardless the endless rain, the views were great, and the house warm, after getting the fire going! Urs and Rosie did a great job, the house has everything you'd need, if you can live without WiFi....More

Rural, peaceful location, narrow lanes, but easy access to Bantry and district. Well equipped for a couple. Friendly helpful hosts. We really enjoyed the comfortable and surprising accommodation of this unique design and would certainly revisit and recommend.
