Goleen House Rental Photos and Description
Terrific family house, close to village and beaches
A brilliant house for a family holiday within easy access of the seaside and sandy beaches. Simply furnished with pinewood floors the house is light and airy and set in its own grounds just a a five minute walk from the village. Private but not remote the house has a good view across to the village and the spire of the local church. The garden is a natural rockery interspersed with shrubs and grassy areas. Well off the road and gated it is safe for small children. The decor is modern but the atmosphere is that of a cottage. A good central heating system and open fires makes it a great choice for a winter break. The village is lively in the high season but slips back into a wonderful West Cork tranquillity in the Spring and Autumn. Not much happens in the winter except the tide comes in and the tide goes out - many people find that is just what they want in this busy 21st century.
