Set in the picturesque valley of the curiously named River Sheep, Primrose cottage is located on the main road, while also nestled into a hill of green leafy Cork countryside. The cottage is south facing and is flooded with light in the summer, cosy and sheltered in the winter. This old house has thick walls and has many quirky nooks and crannies typical of a cottage of that era.

Please note WiFi is not strong.

Dogs are very welcome :)

Ideally located in the picturesque valley of the curiously-named River Sheep and only 25 minutes’ drive from Cork Airport, Primrose Cottage offers a unique combination of rustic charm and urban convenience. Nestling cosily in green leafy countryside it is a 20 minute drive from Cork city centre while the nearest pub – the award winning “Blairs Inn” which incorporates a well-regarded restaurant – is only a minute away across the road.

Built in the 1870's, the cottage has thick walls and all the quirky nooks and crannies you might expect in a cottage of that era. There are 2 bedrooms (a double and a single) upstairs while downstairs there are 2 small sitting rooms, a dining room, and a kitchen. It is south facing under a sheltered hill so it’s flooded with light in the summer, cosy and sheltered in the winter.

Nearby attractions include Blarney Castle, Blarney House & gardens (10 minutes drive), water skiing facility (15 minutes drives), international angling competitions in Coachford (15 minutes) and the National Rowing Centre (10 minutes). A little further afield is Cork City with its annual Jazz Festival, Film Festival, Midsummer Arts Festival, The Marquee concert venue, Páirc Uí Chaoimh GAA and concert venue, the world-famous English Market and much more besides. Cork is also a university city - University College Cork (UCC), Cork Institute of Technology (CIT) and Cork University Hospital (CUH) are all only 20mins away. Ballincollig town and park is less than 15 minutes away, as is the N40/N22 motorway - offering easy access west (Killarney, West Cork, Kerry), east (Waterford, Wexford, Cobh, etc.), North (Limerick, Dublin, etc.), and South (Kinsale, Innishannon, etc.) – is less than 20 minutes away.
