About the property

Park-like garden with swimming-pond (450 sq. meters), sauna, patio, conservatory

If you like to relax and switch off completely, my holiday resort will be just the ideal place for you.

It is nearby the sea and approx. 1.4 km from Goleen. The Irish cottage, originally built in 1826 and completely renovated in 1996, is embedded in a gorgeous, 9000 sq. meters park-like garden with palm trees, roses, hydrangeas and rhododendrons. It is a true paradise not only for adults but also for children. From the small stone igloo on top of a hill (at the end of the garden), you will enjoy the most spectacular view of the country-side, the sea and the Fasnet Rock.

The house (200 sq. meters) has been completely renovated and refurbished and is fully equipped with everything you need: spacious living and dining rooms, cosy bedrooms, kitchen utilities and an international library. The modern and environmentally friendly solar heating with floor heating keeps you nice and warm all year round. And in winter you may enjoy a glass of Irish whisky in front of the two open fire places.

On the spacious, tiled patio you find a large stone table, chairs for 8 people and several deck-chairs. From there you overlook the 450 sq. swimming-pond with a wooden platform to sun-bathe.

On cooler days, you may enjoy some time in the sauna which accommodates 4 people. From the relaxing room adjoining the sauna you overlook the garden and the pond.

About Jochen Bischoff

On my first visit to Ireland I fell immediately in love with this country and its wonderful openhearted people. As a logical consequence I soon decided to look for a property to acquire.

In 1996 I bought this wonderful peace of land with its cottage. I had it very carefully renovated and extended to around 200 square meters of living space. Now I spend more than half the year here myself.

Jochen Bischoff purchased this chateau / country house in 1996

Why Jochen Bischoff chose County Cork

Due to its unique location above Goleen with sea view.

A stunningly beautiful venue with excellent caretaker !

  • 5 of 5

Our family found this beautiful Irish Country home to be beautifully appointed, with all amenities. It was very private, surrounded by absolutely gorgeous gardens. The house was in an excellent state of upkeep. We would definitely like to return in the future. Thank you so much Mr. Jochen Bischoff.

A stunning home in a beautiful part of Ireland.

  • 5 of 5

We have returned from a fantastic family holiday in this amazing location. A most beautiful house with amazing gardens and of course the biggest hit, the swimming pond. Extremely friendly owner and really nice local care takers of the house. This house will be very hard to beat and we will definitely return. The only problem we had was that a week was too short!

Thank you so much for this amazing experience.

Gavin & Family.

Ein irisches Schmuckstück

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zum ersten Mal in Irland. Im Majo-House haben wir uns auf Anhieb wie zuhause gefühlt. Im Vorfeld der Reise gab es genaue Angaben zur Anfahrt und zur Ausstattung. Wir sind dann bei der Ankunft sehr herzlich und zuvorkommend von den „Caretakern“ begrüßt worden. Das großzügige Haus, der grandiose Garten und der unglaubliche Ausblick aufs Meer haben uns und die 4 Teenager sofort gefangen genommen. Viele schöne Rückzugsorte im Wintergarten, im Kaminzimmer, im Wohnzimmer oder im parkähnlichen Garten sorgten für Gemütlichkeit. Das Gemeinsame fand dann am Esstisch, in der Küche, auf der Terrasse oder am See statt.

Majo-House ist ein sehr persönliches Feriendomizil. Wir fühlten uns wie gern gesehene Gäste, die die Besonderheit des Hauses, des Gartens, der Westküste und des ganzes Landes geboten bekamen.

Der Gastgeber hat viele Tipps und Informationen zusammengestellt, die die Urlaubstage viel zu schnell vergehen ließen. Die Caretaker standen jederzeit zur Verfügung und unterstützten bei allen Fragen. Zusammen mit den Pubs, der irischen Musik, der unglaublichen Küstenlandschaft der Westküste und dem Meer trug der Aufenthalt in diesem Haus zu einem traumhaften Urlaubserlebnis bei.
