The House at Libeen is situated 6 miles from Schull on the Mizen Peninsula in an elevated position with wonderful views from all windows over Dunmanus Bay, the Sheeps Head Peninsula, and Mount Gabriel.
It is a cottage style, stone built house in an acre garden which is totally enclosed by old stone walls where wild fuchsia grows in profusion.
The house is light, spacious, and furnished to a very high standard. It is well equipped, and can sleep 6 plus a baby very comfortably. 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 on the Dunmanus Bay side, all of which have many excellent pubs and gourmet restaurants. The countryside around is beautiful and rugged and is good for hill walking and cycling. There are excellent golf courses in Bantry, Glengariff and Skibbereen plus lovely sandy beaches around Crookhaven and Barley Cove.....and the good news is: We do NOT charge extra for cleaning or utilities, plus wireless broadband is provided free.
Hill Walkers Paradise: Our house is situated in immediate proximity to The South Durrus and Mount Corrin Trail. There are fabulous views along this trail of Dunmanus Bay, Roaring Water Bay and the Mizen Peninsula - a must for those who like walking.

Maison, chaleureuse et cocoon.
Magnificent house, warm and cocoon.
Séjour très agréable avec trois enfants. West Cork est vraiment une région magnifique. Le jardin et ses lapins sont magiques. La maison est très confortable et très bien équipée, même si parfois le temps irlandais est humide, la maison est chaude et cosy. On est très content de notre séjour irlandais.
Very pleasant stay with three children. West Cork is really a magnificent region. The garden and its rabbits are magic. The house is very comfortable and very well equipped, even if sometimes the Irish weather is wet, the house is hot and cosy. We are very satisfied with our Irish stay.
Merci Jeanne - we are so pleased you enjoyed our house and Ireland. Best wishes to you and yours. Ernie and Catherine.
Outstanding home and location
My wife and I plus two friends stayed here for a week. What a place! The house is very good indeed - spacious, beautifully furnished and decorated, with everything you need (including excellent wifi). The location is stunning, with great 360 degree views.
Within an hour's drive there is so much to see and do. Lovely little towns like Schull and Baltimore and a plethora of places to eat and drink.
This property has it all. A beautiful home which feels far from the madding crowd but within easy reach of things to see and do.
We really appreciate you taking the time to post your review. Ernie and I hope it will inform others of what a beautiful part of the world west cork is. Happy Hollidays!!!
Americans in Ireland
This property is gorgeous, clean, comfortable, well appointed, and sits perfectly in its surroundings. My wife and I, her daughter, son in-law, granddaughter, and my wife's best friend stayed 10 days at the Libeen house. We had the best time. The Mizzen peninsula is beautiful, peaceful, and full of breath-taking hikes and nearby villages on the water that are dreamy, clean and colorful. We found everyone to be happy, friendly and helpful. Once at Libeen House, you won't want to leave!
Thanks Terry and family. We are so pleased you enjoyed our house and Ireland. Cathy and Ernie Pusey
We spent an amazing 2 weeks in this stunning house in Libeen.
The views of Dunmanus Bay are excellent, the setting is stunning and its location is also very good, with the nearest town with everything you need (shop, pubs, post office etc.) only a 5 minute drive away.
The house itself is obviously very well maintained and has all the facilities you'll need. The rooms were big, bright and tastefully furnished and decorated, and the conservatory was great for watching the sun go down over the bay.
I cannot recommend this place enough. I'd love to go back.
Thanks Andrew for your review. We are so glad you,like us, enjoy the house and it's beautiful surrounding countryside. We hope you will find time to visit again soon.
Best Wishes Ernie and Catherine.
very pleasant cottage in an excellence environment
Thank you Rene and family for your comments. We hope you will return one day soon.
Wonderful, peaceful and relaxing :-)
We spent 2 wonderful weeks in Catherine's and Ernie's House in Libeen. The pictures on the website show really what you get and even more! Nothing missed, neither the charming luxury of the house nor the fantastic environment. It's a wonderful, spacious house, furnished with everything you need. We didn't miss a thing!
We are so glad you enjoyed our house and ireland.
The Mizen Peninsula is at Ireland's most south-westerly point and is a rugged and beautiful area with many islands off the coastline, which can be discovered via ferries from Schull and Baltimore. There are many ancient sites with stone rings, castles and wedge tombs as well as mountains, sandy beaches and rocky coves.
Dolphins, Minke whales and seals are regularly sighted from the cliffs around the Mizen. If fresh fish is your fancy, there are many options: Boats can be hired in Schull to catch your own Mackerel or Pollack - we have found the waters around Schull to be teeming with these fish in Summer. Alternatively a wide range of locally caught prawns, lobsters and other fish can be bought direct from the fishermen as they land them at a number of local harbours.
Other Activities: sea kayaking
