In the very southern reaches of the island of Ireland is the county of Cork and this is where travellers will find the wonderful town of Rosscarbery. Situated on the edge of an estuary leading out into Rosscarbery Bay, a holiday in the town is guaranteed to leave you feeling totally relaxed and re-energised for going home. A Rosscarbery holiday rental cottage lends a hand to a sleepy, quirky and traditional Irish way of life and comes equipped with all of the amenities you need to complete your fantastic trip.
The best thing about a Rosscarbery holiday is that there is plenty to see and do in the town as well as in the immediate area. There are several wonderful beaches on the outskirts of Rosscarbery which can become very crowded during the warm summer months. But they do provide plenty of opportunity to enjoy activities such as swimming, fishing, sailing and surfing. Other activities available on a Rosscarbery holiday include hiking, walking, mountain biking, tennis, horse riding and golf.
No Rosscarbery holiday would be complete without a visit to the renowned town of Blarney which is approximately 43 miles to the north-east of the town. Blarney is most famous for The Blarney Stone which is situated in the beautiful Blarney Castle. The legend states that if you kiss the Blarney Stone you will be blessed with “the gift of the gab”. Blarney does have some other worthwhile sights, including the unique town square which is not made of stone, concrete or stones, but of grass!
