Boreen Cottage is located on the coastal road between the busy market town of Skibbereen and the charming village of Castletownshend along the #Wild Atlantic Way.

A much loved family summer retreat for over 25 years, this south facing house enjoys panoramic views of the Atlantic ocean. There is a very large garden and a patio area that gets the sun for most of the day until early evening (when it's shining!).

Dee was a fantastic hostess and her glorious cottage in a glorious spot was a joy to visit. West Cork is a fantastically beautiful area and Boreen Cottage is a fine addition. I have no hesitation in recommending both. We were, of course blessed with one of the best July weather…
