Meenvane House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Right on the harbour, the house faces south across beautiful Roaring Water Bay, spacious, bright and fully equipped for comfort. All rooms have views of the bay, the islands and ruggedly beautiful Cape Clear. Our private boat mooring can be available to guests by prior arrangement.

You can relax and observe the vibrant maritime life of the harbour from our sheltered garden with its BBQ area, from which steps lead down to a smaller garden bordering the pretty stream that runs along the property.

The heart of the village - with its varied shops, restaurants and traditional pubs, several with live music - is just a two-minute walk from the house,

Schull has long been associated with food production of the highest quality. (Check out the lively Schull Country Market on Sundays). The area offers a range of summer leisure, sporting and cultural activities: sailing, boating, diving, angling, arts events, music festivals and many diverse excursion options on both land

Location de rêve

  • 5 of 5

We spend a wonderful week at Riverside, all was perfect: a very lovely house, beautiful and very comfortable with a pleasant garden, in a friendly welcoming town.

Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de notre séjour à Riverside: nous avons été accueillis par des personnes très très sympathiques, dans une maison superbe, spacieuse, bien agencée, très agréable et idéalement située. Elle offre également un point de vue superbe sur le port de Schull.

Spent a fantastic (and unbelievably sunny) week at this lovely property. Perfect location in the heart of a very nice little town and ideal for exploring the local area. Great house, good size rooms containing everything you'd need. Very friendly and helpful owner. Definitely recommend this property to anyone.

Just what we were looking for! 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a delightful week at this house in Schull. The home has a fabulous location overlooking the Schull Harbour. There are great views from every room in the house and the backyard. The home itself is lovely. It is well appointed, extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The house is located in the charming town of Schull with the pier, pubs, park and restaurants all within walking distance. The surrounding areas are some of the most scenic and unspoiled in Ireland. We didn't want to leave and will certainly return. We highly recommend this property!

Charming Waterfront Property

  • 4 of 5

This is a delightful house 3 bed house with comfortable accommodation and very much a feeling of someones ''home'. The location is very convenient to the village, the waterfront, the playground and tennis courts so much so that we hardly moved our car which remained in the secure court yard belonging to the house. The rush of the river beside the house is both soothing and disguises any late night noises which one might hear at the busy times of the year. The garden to the house is charming, with a nice patio area and BBQ which can be used when the sun shines . Also a good supply of essential herbs which are always useful - tarragon, rosemary, sage, chives and some thyme just under the bay window.

Schull is located on the Mizen Peninsula in picturesque West Cork, in the southwest of Ireland. Thanks to the gulf stream, the climate is particularly mild with palm trees and eucalyptus trees growing here. This beautiful fishing village, its harbour looking out to Roaring Water Bay, is world famous among the sailing community. The village offers all types of recreational, cultural and sporting activities. There is a book shop, a traditional bio-store and even a small chocolate manufacturer as well as craft and design shops, nice restaurants and cafés and, of course the famous small pubs. In addition to West Cork’s renowned scenery and wildlife, there are some spectacularly beautiful beaches within easy reach.
