I restored this cottage from 2003 with love and every ounce of my soul has been poured into bringing it to a cosy retreat perfect for two or a small family or 4 close friends. Take time to Hike, Bike, Read, Write, Draw, Think, Play, Live &make Love. There is a large extension which is another house which can be rented separately or together if you have a larger group. Thick stone walls means there is excellent sound proofing. You would not notice the guests next door unless you meet them.
“Two of us stayed at Sheila's place for three nights. We had a real great time. The house waa perfect for us, cozy and warm with a fireplace and lovely kitchen. We didn't even feel the storm Brendan while hiding behind thick walls of this house. The location is amazing, so much to do nearby. We had lovely chats with Sheila and got lots of tips for the best ways to explore the beautiful Sheeps head and nearby area. Definitely will be back!”
Our warm and welcoming cottage, boasts an original inglenook fireplace with solid fuel burning stove and exposed stone. The walls are at least one meter thick and the cottage predates the Irish famine.
“If you're looking for a quiet getaway from the city or just to disconnect for a while then this is your place. A cosy cottage with everything you need situated in an isolated part of West Cork, but with lots of things to do and see closeby such as a swim in Lough Hyne, a hike to the top of Knockomagh Wood, the Beacon at Baltimore and exploring the Crookhaven/Mizen peninsula. Aisling & Donagh were on hand for anything we needed, not that we did as the cottage has everything you could want to make your stay cosy from the super-comfortable bed to the open stove in the living room. Would highly recommend this cottage as a getaway for a couple or a small group of friends, we loved our stay!”

“An excellent place to stay! The treehouse is firm but extremely cozy with a stunning view and a quite atmosphere. It was spotless clean and relaxing. Richard is a superb host and provided great privacy and lovely breakfast. =) The experience it unique and we can't recommend it enough.”
