Dunmanus Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description

A Superb Stone Built Cottage - Amazing views - sleeps 6/8 3 Beds 2 Bathrooms

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Huge Kitchen and 3 reception rooms.

Our beautiful house at Drishane is situated 6 miles from Schull on the Mizen Peninsula in an elevated position with wonderful views over Dunmanus Bay. High speed Internet and printer with office looking over the Atalntic ocean. From the kitchen window you can watch Dolphins and Seals feeding for the mackerel which abound in the water here. It is a cottage style, stone built house in a half acre garden. Running through the garden is a stream with a small waterfall and pool with a bridge to a little spinney – ideal for the children to play. You can walk to a private beach within 150 mts where you can swim fish and sunbathe

The location is well placed to access Schull, Ballydehob (5 miles), and Baltimore (12 miles) on the Roaring Water Bay side of the peninsula as well as Bantry (7 miles), Glengariff (12 miles) and beyond the Dunmanus side, all of which have many excellent pubs and restaurants. The village of Durrus is 5 miles away with pubs great food and live music plus a mini-market filled with local produce. The surrounding countryside is stunning in all directions both beautiful and craggy and is excellent for hill walking and cycling. There are first class golf courses in Bantry, Glengariff and Skibbereen plus amazing long beautiful sandy beaches around Crookhaven and Barley Cove.

Many of our friends and family who have stayed describe the setting as idyllic but all without doubt maintain it is the best view they have ever experienced anywhere on earth. Surrounded by the mountains and sea washed by the gulf stream waters makes the location and amazing scenery one of those rare places where you can almost touch the peace and serenity. It is truly an unforgettable cottage in the most wonderful of locations – writer’s poets and artists are inspired here - as you open the door and step inside you feel like you have been transposed into another world where you can lose your cares and find tranquility!

Following many years of happy holidays in Ireland with our children we decided that there could be no better place to invest our savings in a holiday cottage. We have been coming here for the last 12 years and so many friends and family say they think it the most idyllic place on earth. We know if you stay here you will leave relaxed refreshed and with the happiest of memories.

Gillian Seago purchased this cottage in 2000

This area of Ireland is undoubtedly considered the most coveted -surrounded by hills mountains lakes streams and of course the great Atlantic Ocean itself. The water is warm and literally so close you could hit a cricket ball into the sea ... the views are never ending. It is hard to describe the natural beauty and wildlife that abound in the area. For the fishermen you can catch your mackerel for breakfast and be cooking it 5 minutes later on the Aga. Sandy beaches abound and the local people are so warm and friendly - it is a super place to be!

The views from the panoramic Kitchen window will astound you - in the mornings and often late afternoons Dolphins can be seen swimming and playing. Sitting by the stream in the evening with the barbecue gently smoking away you can watch the breathtaking sunsets as you look out across the ocean. Inside the house is so warm and comfortable even on those less sunny days there is a unique quality and pleasure that our home has. The smell of the open peat fire the Aga with the kettle always hissing away on the boil takes you back to times when time seems endless and happy with all the excitement of the days to come. Holidays here are truly amazing.

Best place we stayed in Ireland

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 28, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
We stayed at this beautiful place in November. Great view, warm house with a roaring fire place- such a picture perfect place. Besides the wonderful house which is evident on the photos, this place is ideally located- 10 minutes from Durrus- not too secluded but gives enough privacy off the road, very convenient to explore both Mizen Head and Sheep's Head peninsulas.

Another great bonus is their caretaker/neighbor George and Mary. Just a wonderful couple. I might forget the castles and monuments but will never forget those rainy afternoon teas we shared (make sure you get Mary's recipe of the Porter cake she makes with Guinness.)

The owners are well loved by the locals (which you wouldn't know before renting via websites like this) which added to the enjoyment of our stay.

All in all, it was the best place we stayed in Ireland.
Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you to stay in our home. We were very lucky to find this house some 13 years ago partially built and being able to have the house exactly as we wanted it. We are very lucky with our neighbours George and Mary - it would have been difficult to monitor the house with us living in England, without their invaluable help - they make everything possible. We have only been letting the house this year and they have facilitated smooth turnovers between renters. It is a beautiful house and as you say, very conveniently situated. I'm so glad you enjoyed the house as much as we do.

Beautiful and welcoming Cottage

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jul 8, 2013
  • Stayed: Jul 2013
This cottage was adorable. Very homey, breathtaking view and very comfortable, house was very clean inside and out. We stayed for a long weekend for my husband’s birthday and we did not want to leave. Gillian and George (owners) were a pleasure to deal with as well as George and Mary (caregivers). We will defiantly be returning. Highly recommend.

Holiday Bliss

  • Submitted: Apr 30, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2012
We stayed in this wonderful house 3 years ago with our 2 children and now have just booked again for this year. This house is in a magical setting with the chance to walk to the secluded beach which is private and perfect for the children with rock pools soft sand and sheltered water.

We promised to leave a review then but overlooked doing it - now as we look forward to this years visit we want to put that right and say how nice Gillian (the owner) is and how special they made us feel in their home and supporting our every request.

Birthday Treat

  • Submitted: Apr 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
We came here for my Birthday as 2 years ago I proposed to my wife in Crookhaven a few miles from this special cottage.

I was up early one morning making our breakfast and saw about 100 Dolphins swim into view right in front of the Kitchen window - the owners have thought of everything and provide a set of binoculars and we spent nearly two hours watching them - it is an unbelievable experience and in such an exclusive setting.

The house is warm cosy so well furnished - fast Internet and even a cell phone provided there's a housekeeper nearby and it is a just so all round perfect for a romantic holiday or if you have children
