The local area : The rugged and unspoiled Beara Penninsula in South West Cork is often described as one of the most untamed and beautiful parts of Ireland. 'Domhain Eile' provides an opportunity to experience this lovely part of Ireland . This is a fantastic house with superb facilities , stunning views and in a unique and special part of Ireland .
The house is 1.5 miles from the fishing port of Castletownbere (well served with supermarket, restaurants and pubs) and is on the famous Beara Walking and Cycling Trail. There are a couple of good restaurants in Castletownbere - The Olde Bakery and Cottage Heights serving a selection of fresh local fish but with a varied menu. A bit further away in Glengarriff there are several restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual bar food. Kenmare is famous for it's gastronomic delights and is teeming with superb restaurants.
Local life: Although it is a small town, Castletownbere is the largest white fish port in Ireland and is a bustling workin
Golfing: There are three golf course's in the immediate area (caveat - the author is not herself a golfer!) There is Bantry Bay Golf Club which is open to visitors and is a Christy O'Connor Junior designed course and I am told there are stunning views across the bay at many of the holes. There is another golf course at Glengarriff which is a 9 hole park land course with terrific views across Glengarrif Harbour. The Club President is none other than the former film actress Maureen O'Hara who lives locally. There is a links course in Castletownbere itself and at least 2 other courses within 20 km of Glengarriff. Enjoy your golf!
Capacity: Although 'Domhain Eile' is advertised as a house for 8 people there is capacity for up to 10 persons so the house could suit two families. There is an extra table in the Lounge area which will seat 4 persons and the dining room table will seat 8. There is comfy seating throughout the house to include an example of the 'Beara Chair' and footstool which can be used outside if the weather permits. This is a great house for children - they will love exploring it and will have lots of room to play indoors and outdoors.

Guestbook comments from the owner
The house was very nice - big , perfect, awesome ! Our favourite place was a rock pool. Gleninchaquin Park was wonderful. So too was swimming in the Atlantic. We loved the Cable car ride over to Dursey Island. Allihies Beach and Garinish Loopwalk were also great fun. And we saw dophins from Dursey. Thank you very much Cora for the lovely holiday.
