What a great house in a beautiful setting, overlooking Clonakilty bay.The house was exactly as described. We had driven a long way and had a great welcome from Pat the owner,who provided us with milk,bread,butter and biscuits,which were very much appreciated.He went out of his way to help us and readily provided a cot and high chair.We have been coming to holiday in the area over a number of years and this house will definitely go to the top of our property list! A wonderful find!
We have fallen in love with this house and its excellent views of the coastline and countryside. We cannot recommend staying there more highly.
This was our 8th consecutive year to stay in the house as it is ideally positioned to take in the expanse and wonder of the ocean which has to be seen to be believed. The property is always well presented, clean, comfortable and relaxing with all the modern conveniences. The greatest surprise awaits when arriving at the bottom of the hill in Ballinglanna to witness the view ahead which is just magical. It is only fair to share with others this wonderful scenic and unspoiled area. We can only strongly recommend the location, view and this property which complements all so well
Our favourite restaurants are The Sugan & Mio's in Clonakilty and Deasys in Ring but there is much more to experience here and in West Cork. Once you have been here you will undoubtedly return
This house was an excellent find for us. We went down to Ballinglanna (only 7km outside Clonakilty, and 4 Euro to there in a taxi!) for a joint birthday party and had a great time. The house was very clean, had all of the amenities we could ever need, and the owner/caretaker were very courteous and helpful. There was a lovely beach only 5 minutes walk from the house and the views were spectacular. I'd highly recommend this property to anyone.
Other Activities: Music Festival and Car rally weekends, etc.
