2 Bathrooms, 4 bedrooms, sleeping 8 people

Welcome to Ard na Farraige our holiday home in beautiful Ballinglanna, Clonakilty, West Cork. The house is on an elevated site only a few yards from the sea-shore. At the edge of the village, it benefits from extra privacy and has most spectacular views over Clonakilty Bay and the Atlantic Ocean.

In Ring village take the first turn right by the water.

Continue on to a T-junction. Turn right. At next junction veer left. Continue on that road for 1.5 miles until you reach the holiday village by the sea. Ard na Farraige (No. 18) is at the far end.

The caretaker’s house is a pale orange cottage at the descent to Ballinglanna. (‘Pump Cottage’). Our caretaker is always on hand to give assistance.

Birdwatching around Clonakilty Bay can be very rewarding. It provides easy access and viewing all around both estuaries and lagoons Sea watching can be done from the house (Ard na Farraige ), from Dunmore and from Virgin Mary's Bank on Inchadoney Island.

COMMENTS FROM OWNER GUESTBOOK

The best testament to the attractiveness of the house is the fact that our guests return year after year, some even twice in one year. David & Christine Streets: 'Who would believe that this has been our seventh visit to your excellent house? This visit has been one of quiet reflection and rest which is what we wanted to do... Thank you again... We enjoyed ourselves very much indeed. We will be back.' - July 2005. 'Twice within three months of last visit to Ballinglanna must be a record... There must be something in the Irish air that brings us back... Thank you again for the use of your house. Just to laze around and read was enjoyable and the weather has been kind too. Thank you Peggy for being around when required.' - Oct 2005. The Desmond Family: 'Where do we begin? A beautiful house, a great location... well equipped... homely. Things we have seen: dolphins, seals, otters and too many other things to mention. A wonderful holiday, totally relaxing, an incredible part of the world'.

OUTSTANDING IN EVERY WAY!

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely loved my stay at Ard na Faraige. The house is very well laid out and has all the comforts of home. The views and the scenery are spectacular. This is a wonderul place to relax and unwind. I spent every morning sitting out on the patio listening to the waves while enjoying my breakfast--a perfect way to start the day!

Once you learn the roads, Clonakilty is a short drive. This lovely town has good markets where you can find local goods, and several restaurants, pubs and plenty of window shopping. The SuperValu right at the Clonakilty roundabout has lovely fresh bread and other bakery items, as well as local produce and cheese. The Lettercollum Kitchen Project on Connolly St. is also worth a visit. If you enjoy traditional music, An Teach Beag is a delightful find in Clonakilty, which has trad music on Friday and Saturday nights. It is located in an alley behind the O'Donovan Hotel.

I enjoyed my stay here so much that I cannot wait to return. I now understand why this house has so many repeat visitors. It is a fabulous spot and the house is really nice. It was very clean and comfortable and the internet worked well. You can't go wrong here. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Dear Marybeth,

Thank you for your unsolicited review. Am so glad you enjoyed your stay at Ard na Farraige. I felt confident you would love the place once you saw it. You are not alone in wanting to return.
At least five families who stayed with us in 2013 are promising to come back again in 2014.
That speaks for itself.

Again, many thanks

Margaret

JUST DELIGHTFUL

  • 5 of 5
We just clocked up out 14th visit & have already secured the same week for 2014!
Glorious wether all week made the holiday even better. The bungalow has undergone a complete refurbishment with the bedrooms particularly tasteful.
I see bookings to this beautiful location are on the increase, that is no surprise to me.
Although the large bungalow is more than ideal for two families, its the stunning location that is the real winner, with Clonakilty close by.
The only issue we have, is where are we going to put all the people who want to come next year!! Just delightful!!! Roll on May 2014!!

PARADISE IN THE EMERALD ISLE

  • 5 of 5
We first visited Ard Na Farraige way back in 1999 & come May 31st this year, we've knotched up our 13th booking.
The scenery is absolutely stunning & when you drive into Ballinglanna through the rolling Irish countryside, you get a glimpse of the coast & we feel we've "arrived home"!!!
We used to come in October, the weather was very mixed but there is something about the place, even when it was stormy, coal fire on, it was so cosy!
The bungalow itself has four bedrooms & all the comforts & essentials you would expect of a good holiday property.
The owners update or modernise something every year, last year we aquired internet connection,very handy.
But as good as the accomodation is, the area is the real winner, absolutley stunning scenery, beaches, fantastic towns & villages, from Clon to Kinsale, everything is there for the holiday maker.
Inchydoney is one of the best beaches you'll ever come across, it reminds me of Woolacombe, Devon but is usually very sparcely populated.
We often visit the same haunts, pubs, cafes & places but never get bored. There is always something different.
Places to visit regards food are too numerous to mention but the local pub, the Grange, is about one & a half miles away, a must for lunch time & for a Guiness or three at night.
O'Donovans is a favourite in Clon, for lunch & excellent evening meals & of course that Stout!
Betty Bronsnons,(Clon, Pearse Street), was our favourite cafe but closed last year, we only hope it re-opens for more excellent soup, snacks etc. If it dosen't, that's just a small negative on what is an excellent town & a gold mine for touring round for meals & shops! Just keep looking & trying different venues, I've yet to have a bad experience eating out in Cork!!!!
If you want to go further a field, again there is not enough space to list all the places.
Dingle & Kerry, particularly Kilarney are all a super day out. Literally anywhere along the coast is stunning!!
Back to the house after a day out & relax with a cuppa or a glass of vino, the view stunning as you look into the expansive Atlantic, you may just be lucky & spot dolphins!! We did for the first time last year, just delightful!
Any problems you may encounter, easily sorted by the legend that is Peggy, the house keeper. If you do decide to stay here, you will not be disappointed!!

Ballinglanna Village is about five miles from Clonakilty a town designated West Cork's Heritage Town by Fáilte Ireland and a visit to the town soon shows why. You feel at home here among the attractive traditional shop fronts and hand-painted signs in English and Irish. At Ard na Farraige we have compiled a dossier of places to visit and things to do in and around Clonakilty. Our guests have also recorded their activities and experiences for your guidance. This is a ideal holiday destination and a base from which to tour West Cork a region blessed with some of Ireland's most spectacular scenery.

Clonakilty is the Beach Centre of West Cork with the Blue Flag Beaches of Inchydoney, Owenahincha and the Warren close-by and many smaller coves to be explored, some within walking distance of the house.

Cobh, Kinsale. Schull, Baltimore, Skibbereen and Bantry, are all within striking distance. The Sheep's Head and Beara Peninsulas and the Ring of Kerry make exciting day trips.

Other Activities: pitch and putt, canoeing and paddle-boating

Golf: Within 10 minutes you can be at Lisselan Golf Course (voted one of the top ten golf courses in The British Isles), a 15 minute drive takes you to Dunmore (9 hole) Golf Course or 20 mins to Bandon Golf Course (18 hole). Green Fees at all these courses are very reasonable.
