About the property

Sleeps 8. 5 bedroom farmhouse in Kilkern

Beautiful farmhouse, modernised yet retaining traditional character, just a few minutes drive from sandy beaches. Kilkern is the perfect base for a family holiday in idyllic West Cork, one of the most beautiful regions of Ireland. Great fishing, golfing, walking, surfing. This farmhouse has been in the owners family for more than one hundred years and has been thoughtfully updated to form the perfect family holiday home.

Situated in grounds of more than an acre incorporating ancient ruined outbuildings, a viewpoint offering stunning sea views, lawned areas and a large decked area(enclosed for child safety), Kilkern is the sort of place you may not wish to leave. But if you have the desire to explore there are sandy beaches just a few minutes drive away, the picturesque award winning village of Rathbarry a mile away, the vibrant Clonakilty(home to much music and excellent restaurants) 5 miles away, and woodland and lakeside walks practically on the doorstep.

Kilkern is as ideal for family holidays as it is for friends and couples to get away for a relaxing break.

Make this country house your home base for a week's fishing, be it sea, lake or river (Argideen, Ilen, Bandon).

Or perhaps golfing is more your thing : try the Lisselan Estate, Dunmore Golf Club, Skibereen Golf Club, Bandon Golf Club, Old Head of Kinsale Golf Club or Farrangalway Golf Courses, to name but the nearest courses.

Idyllic and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. There was four adults and four children and never felt that there wasn't adequate room. Our children range in age from 18months to 8yrs and it was safe and child friendly. The bathrooms are very modern and clean. Would have no problem recommending the property.

wonderful location, comfortable spacious property

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 8 spanning 3 generations. The layout of the rooms was ideal as there was a lot of living space for is all to be together. Equally we had room for privacy.

The kitchen was excellent, well equipped. We loved the three high quality bathrooms.

The location is beautiful. It was our first visit to Ireland, we will definitely be returning!
