Situated near to Castletownbere it is an ideal base from which to explore the scenic Beara peninsula .It's a ten minute drive from the Buddhist centre at gurrannes and a twenty minute drive from dursey and ailihes.
“Declan’s house is a real gem with a lovely interior and great views. It’s tucked away only a couple of kilometres from Castletownbere and is located right on the coast beside Puxley castle and Dunboy Forest. The walk down by the old castle runs and along the coast is lovely - peaceful and secluded. Declan himself was on hand with some great tips recommendations and was a great host. We really enjoyed our stay!”
Traditional meets modern, fully renovated Farm Cottage. Spacious loft bedroom with cozy reading area. Tons of natural light, dramatic mountain and valley views, built from locally cultivated trees and field stone. Custom made local cabinetry. Furnishings sourced from Irish artisan tradespeople. This is a unique holiday getaway that is the ideal space to unwind after a day of hiking, an afternoon of meditation at the local Buddist center or a night enjoying the local trad scene!
“Our stay was lovely! We loved the fireplace and beautiful view. Our hosts were so welcoming and inviting. I felt comfortable asking for whatever I needed. The instructions to find the cottage were confusing, but when we stopped to ask directions, we were delighted to receive a warm welcome to our arrival. Four nights was the perfect amount of time.”
If you love the ocean, you will love this place. It is very quite and private within walking distance to Castletownbere. It has a private automatic gate and the property has a slipway to the sea. Beautiful area to go canoeing. Seals can be seen from time to time. You can watch the fishing boats coming and going.
“Really want to keep this a secret. Lol. Truly one of the most spectacular and peaceful locations I have ever been to, and I have travelled worldwide. Beautiful home with above and beyond everything you will ever need. The hosts have taken such great care to ensure perfect hospitality and special touches around their home. I stayed here for 3 days on a trip with my 83 yrs young mother and we both agreed this was a piece of heaven on earth and could happily have stayed indefinitely. The stunning views out over the water, the seals in the bay, the fishing boats going out, always something to see. Karels wife even left a vase of beautiful roses and a card for my mother, her birthday. We will be back again for a longer duration that is for sure. Will never forget this paradise, including how happy my mother was to stay here. Thank you.”
