About this listing

We have refurbished this fabulous old building in Urhan using local craftsmen. The building was originally a national school for many years from 1884. It then became a post office and shop for over 40 years. There are fabulous views of the sea at the front and views of the mountains at the rear of the property. It is very close to the Urhan Pub (less than 100 metres) so you can wander down for a pint of Guinness or a glass of wine and take in the breath-taking views of Coulagh bay.

Please limit number of guests to 14 people maximum unless agreed in writing beforehand with Daniel and Mary. We don't want to overcrowd the house and ask you to respect the maximum numbers to maintain the comfort and space afforded by the property.
Dogs are welcome in The Old Post Office but please can you try to keep them out of the bedrooms as well as upstairs. It makes cleaning up for next guests a lot easier if dogs don't go in bedrooms or upstairs.
A few other things if possible before you leave. Please make sure woodburners or fires have died down and are closed. Don’t forget to check dryer and washer for any of your clothes
Many thanks. Daniel and Mary

Fabulous house! Great trip to garinish island and dogs were welicome on the boat and in the amazing gardens. Travelled to barley cove beach and have a super day swimming! Dogs were welcome! I loved the walk to Eyeries from the house and had a drink in O'Shea bar. Got a 7 seater taxi back to the house booked at the shop! Locals were very welcoming! Love to go back x

The Old Post Office was more than perfect place to stay for 4 nights with 7 people (4 adults and 3 teenagers). I just wish we had stayed there longer! Rooms were nice and spacious. We enjoed the views to the Sea on front side and the mountains on the back side. Teenagers loved to play ping pong. Thank you for letting us stay in your place. Hopefully we can return some day.

Great house, fully equipped, everything you need is there. Location is perfect for walking in the Beara Penninsula. We are a group of 7 hill walkers and we would highly recommend the Old Post Office as a holiday location.

We had such a lovely stay at the Old Post Office. The house is amazing and was perfect for our family holiday with 5 adults, 2 toddlers and 9 month old. In agreement with previous reviewers the house is even better than the pictures portray! Mary and Daniel were always very quick to answer any queries prior to arrival and Iain was great during our stay. We loved the pints at the Urhan Inn next door (and pool and darts!). The Beara Peninsula is a beautiful place to visit and we have made lots of lovely memories. We'll definitely be back to the Old Post Office again.

Absolutely fantastic accommodation! We were already impressed by the sitting room and kitchen before we were completely blown away by the back room - a huge open space with amazing light from large windows. It was hard to leave the house to go exploring West Cork but we just about managed. I would not have counted the trip as a waste if we didn't leave it at all! I hope to visit again, amazing place.

Daniel and Mary's place is really worth it. We stayed for 2 nights in May 2017 and enjoyed every minute of it. The house is gorgeous and very roomy. The village is friendly and the view from the house is ocean view on one side and a sheepy hill on the other. There is a great walk you can take through the hills near the house that takes you to the next town (Allihies). I would whole-heartedly recommend this house.

If I could give this place a 10 out of 5 I would! Seriously an incredible house! The house was so clean, airy and wonderful, we could not have asked for a better accommodation. Check in was so simple, just walk over to the local pub (less than 30 seconds away) and grab the key from the super friendly bartender! The house has so much room, it was great for our large party. We used the house for a base as we were exploring the area and were so very happy to come back to rest in such a lovely, picturesque location. We had some VIP guests with us that I was hoping to impress, and this place went above and beyond! There are PLENTY of showers and toilettes to accommodate everyone, and if you are into cooking, this kitchen will make you super happy. Thanks again to Daniel and Mary, as well as Iain for putting us up and making everything so easy. This was a WONDERFUL experience! For someone like me, who AirBNB's a lot, this was by far my favourite experience! I most DEFINITLY will be back with my family soon!!!! The pictures online do not do this place justice! And don’t forget to check out the disco lights!!
