About Gilly Murphy
I own a small holding in West Cork which I farm organically. I have two cottages on the land which I rent out.
Why Gilly Murphy chose County Cork
Dunworley is somewhere that we used to visit a lot, being the most beautiful beach in Ireland! The property used to be the famous organic restaurant, Dunworley Cottage Restaurant, where we we would often eat. When it came on the market we fell in love and moved here with our family to start out own organic small holding. We couldn't resist having the most breathtaking vistas on our doorstep!
What makes this Cottage unique
You can have a delicious gourmet dinner cooked by a professional chef. Incomparable walks on the Seven Heads Peninsula (on the Wild Atlantic Way) with incredible views.

Wonderful coastal cottage
Wonderful cottage and hosts! We stayed here for 2 weeks in October and loved every minute. We look forward to returning one day soon.
We loved this cottage.
The views from every window were amazingly picturesque. It was quaint but had every convenience.
Perfect. Can't wait to return!
This was our first trip to Ireland, and I chose this cottage on a whim. It was absolutely perfect! We stayed nearly a month at Dunworley Cottage with our two small boys in April. I can't say enough about the cottage, Gilly and Richard and the surrounding area! The cottage itself is warm and cosy, very spacious and comfortable for our family of four. Our boys spent hours playing in the bright rooms and outside in the yard. Daily walks to the beach and headlands were among our favorite activities, there were days we never bothered to get in the car. Clonakilty is a short drive away, and found everything we needed and more. We took lots of day trips around West Cork, but found Dunworley to be our favorite place to come back to. Richard and Gilly are lovely, we truly enjoyed our time as their neighbors. The farmers' markets in the area are incredible, but we bought most of our produce and eggs directly from Gilly. We ordered dinner the first night -- superb!
The surrounding countryside is stunning, so much to see by foot! We are already scheming for our next trip to this cottage....
Peaceful, gorgeous views, had everything we needed, didn't want to leave!!
We loved our stay at the cottage. It was well equipped with everything we could possibly need including a few nice treats from Gilly & Richard. They were very warm and friendly without being overwhelming. Gave great advice on day trips and grocery shopping. Lots of sweet dogs which made my daughter happy and she's still talking about them. Plenty of room and comfy beds. We slept peacefully listening to the rain at night and not a drop came through with the windows all open. Nicely decorated and clean. The views were stunning and we really enjoy walking the area. We stayed at several top notch places during our trip but this honestly was our favourite, my daughter and I both cried to have to leave (the men weren't as sentimental though!). I would highly recommend it, and hope to return one day myself.
Great Family Vacation
This clean, spacious, and well-stocked vacation retreat was just perfect for our family vacation. Our hosts, Gilly and Richard were extremely informative, helpful and accommodating. The meal Gilly made for us was one of the most memorable we had during our trip to Ireland. Day trips to Kinsale and Clonakilty were great. The beach was a short walk with breathtaking views. A great place to swim in the surf or explore the caves during low tide. The only downside was that it was not within walking distance to town, which meant that we were always driving everywhere. Overall, we highly recommend the cottage - you won't be disappointed!
West Cottage - Dunworley at it's finest
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the West Cottage. The proximity to the ocean and beautiful surroundings were extremely relaxing. My husband, son, niece and some local cousins stayed on with us at various times during our 1 1/2 week stay. The cottage was roomy & accomodating for 7 people with no problem. I highly recommend this cottage for those seeking a getaway and a hideaway, that is full of beauty, good company and fresh air.
