Located in a peaceful setting overlooking the sea. It felt like a home rather than a rental property. We loved that it was close to the village but very private. We had a very happy stay.

About the neighbourhood
Schull is one of the loveliest villages in West Cork, Ireland. It is set in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty with outcrops of granite rock juxtaposed with rolling grassy hillsides full of gorse and wild flowers. The highest point in West Cork is Mount Gabriel which rises directly behind Schull from which there are magnificent views over Schull Harbour, beyond to all the islands in Roaring Water Bay, beyond to Baltimore and out to Cape Clear and the Fastnet Rock. Schull is almost as far southwest as you can be in Ireland - just 10 miles or so from the most south-westerly point of Ireland at Mizen Head. The climate is extremely mild with prevailing southwesterly winds and the benign effects of the Gulf Stream. The air is marvellously clear and clean. Schull boasts a lar...
How to get there
90 minutes drive time from Cork Airport. Lots of car rental availability at the airport. From Cork head west on the N71. Journey time about 1 hr 30 minutes. More precise details from Cork Airport: drive out of airport exit (past petrol station on left) and turn right at the roundabout and follow the R600 (Kinsale Road). At Fivemilebridge take the Right fork (R613) which will be signposted as taking you to the N71. Turn left onto the N71 heading WEST to Bandon. You will pass through a number of towns - Innishannon, Bandon (take the bypass road by turning left as you near the town), Balinascarty, Clonakilty (there is another bypass), Rosscarberry, Leap and Skibbereen (another bypass at a new roundabout - second exit at about two o'clock avoids the town)). You will now pick up sign posts ...
