Waterfall lodge is an old stone built cottage, full of old world charm, with all the mod cons. It is on the Sheeps Head Penninsula, with both mountain and sea views. And with your own waterfall right beside the house, you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity it brings. A 5 minute walk down the mountain brings you to a roadside beach where you can watch the sun go down. Whether its a romantic getaway or a few days of mindfulness, you won't be disappointed. A place once visited, never forgotten!

The space
Our cottage is very cosy, with oil heating. Wooden logs are provided for the log burning stove. The water is purified spring well water, which is nice to drink, and bath/shower in.
The bathroom is set up like a Spa. Bathrobes are provided. There is an array of different bath salts, infused with different healing ingredients free to use. So whether it's muscular relief, stress relief, detox or just relaxation you require, there is a jar of salts for everything. Also fresh organic seaweed is available to soak in.
Full satellite channels are available, including Sky sports, and Netflix. Sorry ladies, but consider this an opportunity to have some pampering Spa time for yourself! Indulge in a salt bath, with the bathroom window open, the sound of the waterfall, the clean sea air flowing in, and a good book . And if there's something missing, a glass of wine brought upstairs by your other half!
Winter weekends are a great way to have a mind and body detox, stay cosy, surrounded by the elements of the wild west! I highly recommend this.

Guest access
You have access to the whole house. There is a large bathroom and large bedroom upstairs. Downstairs is open plan, with a modern kitchen, dining and living, and 2 sofas. Outside there is plenty of parking, with a large patio to the back, garden chairs, table and an elevated large garden, with a natural pond, filling with a fresh mountain stream, where you can dip your toes, and have a moment of mindfulness. There's a hammock to relax in, while listening to the sound of the waterfall.
A wicker drinks cooling basket is available for sunset evenings on the sea shore.

Other things to note
Our cottage is located on the Sheep's Head Peninsula, which is home to world renowned walking and cycling routes. It is a peaceful and unspoilt, with some of the most beautiful scenery in all of Ireland.
Ahakista is an hours walk to the other side of the peninsula, where you can enjoy The Heron Gallery, where Annabels café serves her own home grown food and home baking. You can tour her inspirational garden and art store.
Arundel's bar on the pier is also a great place to have a drink and a bite to eat.
Durrus and Kilcrohane are other villages on the peninsula worth visiting.
Don’t forget the lighthouse walk at the end of the peninsula. Spectacular!
