Property Features

Plenty of room for all the family

Built in the mid 1980’s, the original house was reconfigured by the current owners in the mid 1990’s to create an open living, dining and kitchen area. Most recently the home was extended, retrofitted and completely renovated.

The open plan living area at the centre of the house comprises a stylish kitchen with, dining and seating areas in a cottage style – enhanced with bold colours of coral and cobalt – and a cheery open fireplace.

The fully serviced kitchen corner is bounded by an island yet encompassed in the living space.

You are never far from the breathtaking Bantry Bay vistas that are so much part of this home, with French doors opening onto the front terrace.

Pocket doors link through to a dazzling garden room at the southern end of the cottage, again with double doors out to the ocean views, and a barbecue patio just beyond.

In the generous sitting room at the opposite end, full height windows, with remote controlled drapes, offer an even more picture-perfect view of the bay.
With contemporary wood burning stove, leather swivel recliners, and a substantial TV coupled to a premium sound bar, this is the quintessential chill out room.

Bedrooms

Sleeps up to 8 guests.

There are three cosy bedrooms on the ground floor – two twin rooms and a double. You have a choice of two matching side-by-side bathrooms; with either bath or shower.

Upstairs, the spacious master bedroom takes advantage of that wonderful view thanks to three VELUX CABRIO windows, which ingeniously convert to glazed balconies. It comes with ensuite bathroom with shower.

The broad landing at the top of the stairs serves as a useful study/work area.

Outside

An extended stone dormer cottage, on approximately 3 acres of mostly lawned gardens that run down to the sea. This cottage is on a narrow winding roadway, and accessed via electric gates. The sweeping gardens run right down to the secluded shoreline – a mixture of pebbly beach and rocky pools.

This is ideal for launching kayaks and small fishing boats, not to mention your early morning dip! There are a number of sunny outdoor seating areas and a casual swing & slide patch for youngsters.

ACTIVITIES

The Locality

The cottage lies on the shores of Adrigole Harbour, an inlet of Bantry Bay on the Beara peninsula.
To the rear of the house, the Caha Mountain range runs down the spine of Beara, and Hungry Hill is the highest of its peaks. The panorama at the top is of course staggering, but the route is a bit all-terrain and needs fine weather.
It is down this mountain that the Mare’s Tail Waterfall – some say Irelands highest – tumbles and cascades – about an hour’s walk to it from the house.

Castletownbere is a 15 minute drive westward and has a large well stocked supermarket. It is Irelands largest white fish port, and a resulting mixture of nationalities is evident with a sizeable Spanish influence.
The Port is sheltered by Bere Island, itself with many ancient archaeological sites. The Island was used as a military base by the British Royal Navy until 1938, due to its strategic position and the depth of the sound.
The Ring of Beara road twists its way around this rugged headland, exposing colourful hamlets in its path. Narrow, but with minimal traffic, it is a splendid tour, and the views are spectacular. For Cyclists or Walkers the Beara Way offers a safer route.
At the tip of the peninsula a spur off the loop road continues to Ballaghboy. From here you can catch Irelands only cable car for the ten minute ride to Dursey Island. The rickety car carries six passengers (or the equivalent in sheep) about 250m above infamous Dursey Sound, where strong tides make travelling by boat hazardous.

With magnificent views stretching from the Skelligs to Mizen Head, only a handful of inhabitants brave this wild and windy island. Dolphins, whales and innocent basking sharks are frequently seen in the surrounding seas.
You probably already passed through the charming village of Glengarrif with its choice of gardens, restaurants and pubs – it’s 20 minutes East of the house.
West Cork is blessed with an exceptionally warm and wet micro-climate. The Gulf Stream ocean-current ensures that summer sea temperatures are about 17 C, approximately the same as Long Beach California. Here you can find palm trees, luxuriant sub-tropical vegetation and exotic flowers growing in abundance.
The tiny Garnish Island, just off Glengarrif demonstrates this in a series of gardens flush with rhododendrons, azaleas and other surprising plants.
Don’t miss the twisting Tim Healy Pass. This zigzag road that links the North and South of the peninsula is worth it for the spectacular scenery.
For a period during the 19th century copper mining was a major industry in the area, and much evidence still exists in the small town of Allihies where there is an interesting museum.
