Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Clonakilty

Coach House, 1 Bedroom + 1 Single be, 1 Shower, (Sleeps 2-3)

This cosy Coach House has a mezzanine double bedroom overlooking a lovely, alcove-lit, sitting room with a wood burning stove.

A moments walk from the breathtaking Dunworley Beach.

The perfect couple's (or small family) nest on the Wild Atlantic Way!

The coach house sleeps 2/3 people but extra accommodation is available in our other cottage. Please see below for more information on this.

THE LAY OF THE LAND:

A romantic mezzanine double bedroom with a king size sleigh bed overlooks a lovely, alcove-lit, sitting room with a wood burning stove.

Beside the charming sitting room area is the kitchen.

Through the next door is the bathroom, complete with a big glass-doored shower.

Outside your charming split coach house doors is a terrace with outdoor garden furniture.

Down a few steps is a beautiful sunken garden.

The duvets & pillows are all feather & down.

For those who can’t totally embrace the seclusion of wild West Cork, we have WIFI set up in the coach house free of charge so you can keep in touch with the outside world!

To make booking restaurants etc. easier we also provide you with a free landline to call other landlines in UK & Ireland, free of charge :)

OPTIONAL CATERING:

** (advance booking for this is essential) **

Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner are all available, just ask Gilly for more information & pricing!

We use our own organically minded, fresh produce from our garden & locally sourced meat to create some utterly delicious food.

All allergies & dietary requirements can be catered to.

Or, if you'd just prefer dinner, a delicious 3 course meal with locally reared meat & vegetables plucked straight from our organically minded garden is €30 per person.

We can serve food in the comfort of the Coach House.

You can save a fortune on restaurant-priced wine by drinking your own bottles at dinner!

For sample menus, photos & reviews check our FB page by searching for Dunworley Cottage.

EXTRA ACCOMMODATION:

For extra accommodation we also have a cottage which sleeps between 7 - 10 people (VRBO Listing 42425). This can be booked at an extra cost.

THE AREA:

Dunworley is on the breathtaking Seven Heads Peninsula, part of the Wild Atlantic Way route.

A sandy tidal beach lies just a moment's walk away and offers a tranquil swim, a rugged coastline climb, or just a wander around the beach.

The walks along our headland are absolutely incredible, with a 17th century watch tower, a secluded cove and a salt tower among it's delights.

The surrounding countryside is dotted with small colourful towns and villages, which provide a range of food from irish pub grub to high restaurant quality standard.

Clonakilty, the home of Michael Collins, is just seven miles from the cottage and has a wide variety of delicious restaurants and, in particular, a traditional Irish pub where many renowned bands play, De Barra's.

There is also the spoiling Incheydoney Spa with an indoor sea water pool and a thalassic health spa.

Bandon and Lisselan offer great golf clubs - Bandon (18 holes) and Lisselan (six holes).

Bandon also offers fishing on the sea trout and salmon river, day passes are available.

Kilcoleman fishery is well worth the day.

You can follow the Wild Atlantic Way from Dunworley to Kinsale for a stunning drive.

Be it during the day for some sightseeing (from 17th century forts to rugged walks along the headlands Kinsale is a haven for tourists) or by night for an uplifting irish experience, lively pubs host some excellent bands.

Courtmacsherry is another beautiful harbour town, just 5 miles away and has sailing, riding, sea fishing, and windsurfing facilities along the beautiful strand.

Barryroe Co-Op is the nearest shop, 2.5 miles away.

And the nearest pub is 1.5 miles away.

About Gilly Murphy

I own a small holding in West Cork which I farm organically.

I have two cottages on the land which I rent out.

Why Gilly Murphy chose Clonakilty

Dunworley is somewhere that we used to visit a lot, being the most beautiful beach in Ireland! The property used to be the famous organic restaurant, Dunworley Cottage Restaurant, where we we would often eat.

When it came on the market we fell in love and moved here with our family to start out own organic small holding.

We couldn't resist having the most breathtaking vistas on our doorstep!

What makes this cottage unique

You can have a delicious gourmet dinner cooked by a professional chef.

Incomparable walks on the Seven Heads Peninsula (on the Wild Atlantic Way) with incredible views.

Best Views..and Relaxation ever!!

  • 5 out of 5
My boyfriend and I stay in the Coach house for almost two weeks and had the best time there... Wonderful hosts and accomadations..It felt just like being at home each day. Lots of things to do and its not far from bars and attractions around Ireland. We really enjoyed sitting by the fire each night and just soaking in our surroundings. The dogs would follow us down to the beach and they ended up being our own little tour guides down there..lol. We will for sure be back in the future.Thanks again

Awesome Honeymoon Location

  • 5 out of 5
I know I'm about a year late, but I was just reminiscing about our honeymoon in August/September of 2013. We were looking for a little Irish culture, not to stay in a hotel in town. We found the cottage to be exactly as it was listed. A quaint stone cottage away from it all. Although we did a lot of driving around to other locations during our 10 day visit, this place was awesome to come "home" to. The location, a short walk from a beautiful beach was remarkable as well. We couldn't have asked for a better time. Thank you Gilly and Richard for a very pleasant stay.

ruined honeymoon

  • 1 out of 5
We arrived for our honeymoonon a monday evening. Soon as i walked through the door my heart sank. The cottage is run down wasnt cleaned(not to my standards). There were spider webs all over the bathroom, the whole cottage was full of flies and bugs crawling inside the bedsheets. By wednesday i had decided to leave but was convinced to give it a few more days reluctantly i did but by friday morning i had all i could take and we left with no other accomidations. The owners of the cottage were sweet and very welcoming. But it feels like we were visiting a third world country.. We will never return to ireland our honeymoon was ruined from this experience

Owner's Response: When Tammy and her sweet husband arrived, she was in tears about missing her 10 year old boy,who remained in Canada,with her mother.She wanted to fly back to Canada after 2 days.Her husband (who has been her partner for years) was sweet,kind,patient and gentle,dealing with her mood swings and fluctuating emotions.Her behaviour seemed irrational and hormonal.
I got the impression that Tammy does not like the country and would have been far happier staying in an hotel in a city.
My coach house is clean ,well maintained,comfortable , well equipped and very reasonably priced.The solid mahogany king sized bed is extremely comfortable,with new goose down duvets and pillows,the sheets are cotton (perhaps she prefers synthetic)
The towels are fluffy and new.
Most people who stay in it LOVE it !

Really special

  • 5 out of 5
We feel so lucky to have found this place. It's a special getaway in a very unique part of Ireland. Honestly one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to. Now that I'm living in a city it was just incredible to be able to live for a few days in a spot like this in this with animals around and in this adorable cottage. We instantly felt like it was ours. Richard and Gilly wonderful. We wished we had seen more of them. Also the vegetables straight from the garden a really big bonus, and taste so different to our usual supermarket veg. We are going to book again asap for the summer. I hope its going to become an annual treat!

This place is a slice of Heaven! It is an extremely comfortable, clean and cosy cottage only minutes from the stunning Dunworly Beach and W Cork coastline. The owners could not have been more helpful and advised me of several lovely spots to visit. Clonakilty, the neighbouring town is full of life, artists and wonderful pubs. I highly recommend this property to all and look forward to visiting it myself again soon.

Very Sweet Coach House

  • 5 out of 5
We arrived at this very sweet coach house in time to catch the most stunning sunset across the bay the house is situated above and back from. When we confirmed our booking we found out that the owner, Gilly, is an avid market gardener and cook. She very generously provided us with the most delicious home cooked meal upon our arrival and lots of fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden for the rest of our stay.We were delighted to take away with us some of the yummy jams and marmalade which Gilly makes. The house was cosy and the stove was lit for our arrival which was a welcoming touch. The owners couldn't have been more helpful with suggestions about where to visit and showed us where to go for stunning walks in the area - when the tide was low the beach walk was beautiful and covered several bays. The accommodation is charming, the bed was very comfortable & warm with a lovely duvet and electric blanket. We found everything we needed including WiFi. It was great to get away from the hustle & bustle of normal life to stay in a very peaceful place, off the beaten track. Would have loved to have stayed longer.
