Farmhouse, 2 miles outside Glengarriff, right in the middle of the Nature reserve. A paradise for Hill-walkers or a romantic Getaway. Recharge your batteries in this unique House and it's peaceful surroundings.

This lovely Farmhouse has 2 Bedrooms upstairs. The first room has a double-bed and an en-suit shower and toilet. The second room has twin-beds. There is also a separate bathroom and a comfy bright reading-space upstairs.
The downstairs area is open plan with a dining area, comfy seating in front of the wood-burning stove and a fully equipped kitchen. The accommodation we offer is for self-catering, however, I can provide you with fresh eggs and home-baked bread, if you wish!

Our 5 acres of land invite you to ramble, visit our goats and miniature pony in their fields. Go for a swim in our natural pond,climb up to the top to enjoy the vast views or have a game of table tennis or darts in our games room.

We (my husband and I and our two girls,aged 8 and 10) are living in the main house. We are always at hand, if you have any questions or need advice or a friendly chat, but we also respect your privacy!

Up a very steep and windy 'boreen' (basic road), we have 2 sets of friendly neighbours. Close enough for help and friendship, but far enough for privacy. We are the last house on the road!

A car is pretty much a necessity. We are a good 2 miles from Glengarriff village, a pleasant 45 min walk through the woods. Cycling is fun around here, but you will ,meet some serious hills! Public transport is limited to the bus,which passes through the village 3-4 times a day in both directions.

We charge for electricity by reading the meter in the house. We charge 50 c per unit. You cook with gas, heat with wood, and the water gets heated via our solar tubes. The cost for electricity is therefore usually quite low! We also sell wood at cost price.

We enjoyed the seclusion of being in the woods, the fires at night and the walks around the area. Enjoyed the animals, chickens, geese and especially the very friendly dogs, Lady and Biko.

The accommodation and the view is worth the drive on the steep and windy road! Ideal for children, they think that the 2 dogs (Lady & Biko) was the best thing of our holidays. Lovely getaway and accommodation and very friendly host, even fresh eggs were supplied!

Perfect for a country getaway in beautiful and private setting. House is absolutely wonderful and equipped with everything one could need for a week in Cork. Location is perfect as a base to explore West Cork and Killarney. Antje couldn't have been a nicer host and was fantastic to have around. The dogs are a brilliant and energetic addition also. Would 100% stay again. All in all a fantastic experience.

We are lucky to have met such kind and generous people as Antje, Kevin and their daughters who welcomed us in their nice and comfortable house in the woods. A memorable trip for our daughters who played with dogs, cats, goats... And the sun was there too ! Thank you so much. Merci !

Antje, her husband and her two lovely dogs made us feel very welcome in their woodland house. The house itself was cosy, well-equipped and a comfortable size for four people. We had a minor issue with low water pressure (perhaps understandable for its remote setting?), but overall a very enjoyable stay. The local town of Glengarriff is also very nice with some great places to eat. Thank you once again for your gracious and friendly hospitality!

Great welcome from Antje, Kevin and the friendliest dogs in Ireland! Comfortable house, stunning location, welcoming hosts, delicious eggs and brown bread...what more could one ask for! Ah yes, a little more sunshine would have been nice but Antje has promised to order that for next time!
