A LITTLE GEM IN THE HEART OF THE BEARA PENINSULA!

  • 5 of 5
Myself and my partner have stayed in Strandhill a few times now, at different times of year, and we both absolutely love it! The house is modern, spacious and extremely comfortable with breathtaking sea views. It has all the facilities and equipment you would need and is always spotless on our arrival. The surrounding area has fabulous walks, cycle tracks and little secluded piers and coves to stumble upon. The nearby villages of Allihies and Castletownbere are great for food and drink, particularly the Olde Bakery in Castletownbere and O'Neill's pub in Allihies. If you are a seafood lover you will not be disappointed in any of the restaurants in this part of West Cork, where the fish is freshly caught daily! Allihies also has a beautiful sandy beach with clear blue water for a summer swim. Strandhill is a fantastic retreat in the heart of West Cork and would be ideal for either a romantic getaway or a fun family holiday. I would highly recommend it for anyone wanting to experience the stunning beauty and warm hospitality of the Beara Peninsula.

...ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS WE'VE HAD !

...One of the best holidays we've had !
  • 5 of 5
What can I say......... fantastic, superb, amazing, our stay is one of the best holidays we've had. "Strandhill" and the area has left an incredible footprint on us, relaxing in such a fantastically situated house, with views that we never tired of getting lost in...... it was all we could do some days to make the effort to go out. The rugged beauty of the area was totally stunning, we explored so much around the Penninsula.
We felt instantly at home, everyone we met was so friendly and willing to help as well as the contact with the owner.
I am so very glad that we found this beautiful property and hope that you continue to make it available for holiday makers to enjoy and of course we do plan to return :)
