Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday home in Bantry Bay - Toormore House

Personal, warm atmosphere, secluded sandbeach, fireplaces, library, gardens

The house is in the most south-western part of Ireland, close to the village of Schull. It is right in front of the Atlantic Ocean with views of the world famous Fastnet Lighthouse, as well as a 4000 year old stone tomb. Across the house, there is an intimate sand beach. The house is cosy and comfortable. It has two floors and features open fires, handmade oak and pine furniture, black natural stone slabs and Persian carpets. Under floor heating, bathrooms en suite, reading room, open fire sitting area and conservatory offer space and comfort to relax. The house has several rooms but is ideal for two people. There is a living room with wooden beam ceiling, open fire and a natural stonewall, a meditation room with a massage bed, a master bedroom with en-suite bath and a guest bedroom. The large handmade pitch-pine kitchen, glass conservatories, fireplaces and reading area are also charming. You have ocean view from every room. CD, DVD and book library are available. No kids.

Private and authentic Atmosphere: This house has a very special personal and charming touch and atmosphere. The owner is using it himself on a regular basis and it is very different from a typical holiday rental cottage. Everything is real and authentic. You will find handmade furniture, Persian Carpets, very expensive HiFi system, huge library with books in several languages, art, several hundred CDs and DVDs. The owner is traveling quite a bit and the house is full with little things from all over the word. There is a little video a guest made, you can watch it at youtube if you search for 'Toormore'

Remote and quiet: The house is very remote. In front of the house is a garden with palm trees, fuchsia, escalinoa. The Gulfstream creates a very mild climate and we never have snow. This allows a very sumptuous vegatation. Every room has ocean view and you can see the famous 'Fastnet' lighthouse. A sheltered intimate sand beach is in front of the house. From the guestroom and the meditation room upstairs you can see the 'Standing Stones'. At night, you only hear the waves of the ocean. And sometimes a fox. In fact, the fox as well as Likker and Honey, our cats, might even pay you a visit.

How it all began: Over 15 years ago the owner, an international working artist came to work on an art project in the Southwest of Ireland. Finding peace and serenity and a refined lifestyle which can only be found in a few places on earth, he built his dream house in a very special location. The house is on an elevated piece of land and overlooks the Atlantic, a stone tomb und the bay. Quite an unique combination of endless blue, space and a feeling of longing to be far away --created by the ocean-- yet at the same time the feeling of being at home, protected and sheltered --created by the bay and the cliffs-- had a very strong impact on him and he fell in love immediately. In Toormore he found a place where one can still discover secret places, be enchanted by the grace of thousand year old forests and explore ancient castles and stone circles. Here where people still take the time to chat, it is possible to withdraw from the hectic modern life and to relax, be creative or even find oneself.

At the end of the world, facing the Atlantic Ocean, very cozy. Not a typical holiday rental home as the owner is using the house himself. Filled with art, music, movies and books ... a real 'home away from home'.

Lovely home in a great location

  • 5 out of 5
The photos depict a lovely home but they show only a small piece of the beauty of this property. The house is just perfect with its stucco and stone walls highlighted by Mediterranean colors. We felt like we were home the moment we walked in.

The kitchen has everything you will need and all of the rooms are beautifully appointed with wonderful art and sculpture. An extensive collection of books, CDs and videos will keep you entertained. We built a fire in the living room fireplace most evenings, even though the temperature in the house was always perfect. And every morning we ate breakfast on the patio with a view of the Atlantic.

Toormore is a quiet and peaceful town and the house is nestled in the hills. Schull is about 9 km away with grocery store, several pubs, and shops. We explored the area with trips to Mizen Head, Whiddy Island (take ferry from Bantry Bay), Balleydehob, Cork, and Kinsale.

The owner of the house was delightful to deal with and the local manager was wonderful. She brought us firewood, answered our email questions, and was very gracious when our drive to Tormore from the east coast of Ireland took longer than expected, causing us to arrive an hour later than planned.

We spent a delightful week in the house - a highlight of our two week visit to Ireland. Not only would we highly recommend the house, we are already talking about when we might return!

A delightful and peaceful property

  • 5 out of 5
The property was very well presented with comfortable and quality furniture and fittings. The location was absolutely quiet and peaceful but shops, pubs and restaurants could be found a short drive away. The caretakers were very helpful and friendly without being intrusive. Constant sunshine in the week of our stay obviously contributed to a pleasant holiday but even if it had been raining the house was well equipped with books, CDs, internet and satellite TV so there would have been plenty to do if stuck indoors. We were very satisfied with all aspects of the rental and would unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone who wants a relaxing and peaceful break.

A charming house on the irish coast

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderfull time in this country house, with large windows on the ocean. It is also well equiped and nicely furnished. The rooms are really cosy and confortable. The whole place has a great atmosphere. The nearest village, Skull, is lovely and you will find a lot of nice shops in the main street.
There are many things to see in the area, and many places to have a walk, like Barley Cove, for instance.
Denise was very nice to us and very helpful.

Honeymoon Escape

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I just stayed here for our honeymoon and fell in love with the house and the surrounding area. We wanted an escape for the week and found it with this amazing home away from home. We were able to settle in and have a place to come back to each day after our adventures. The home had everything we needed and felt so cozy. The day it rained we stayed in and read books, and it didn't feel like we were missing out by staying inside. We cooked in the beautiful kitchen and watched movies from the fun collection. We felt more like we moved to Ireland rather than being on vacation. We miss being there every day and hope to make it back in the near future!

Another Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 out of 5
John and I enjoyed another wonderful stay at Toormore House. The weather couldn't have been better - sunshine every day, calm seas, and a great view of Fastnet Rock from the house. The house was great as we remembered - such a soothing and restful place. We were able to disconnect from the daily grind and really relax. We look forward to coming back again soon!

Beautiful House Right on the Ocean

  • 5 out of 5
The house is lovely. Everything was great. It looks exactly like the pictures on the website, only better. Denise was wonderful. We really didn't need much, but we knew that she was only a phone call away. We had a great time!

The house is located at the sunny South West Coast of Ireland, the most demanded area of Ireland. Cork airport is 50 miles away; the next little town (Schull) is 4 miles away. It is surrounded by unspoiled nature on several acres of own coastal land, right on the Atlantic Ocean. All you see from the windows is the sky and the blue of the water and the Fastnet Lighthouse. Because of the Gulf stream, the climate is mild (palm trees in front of the house) and most of the year is perfect for being outside. Because this area is highly sought after by tourists (a sailor’s paradise) the coastal towns are bursting with charming pubs, first class restaurants, little shops and activities. In short: If you want to withdraw and nourish your soul, be surrounded by cosy fireplaces, art, paintings, books, music and movies, handmade furniture, Persian carpets, gardens with palm trees, smell and feel nothing but the Ocean without seeing other houses around you, this is the perfect place.

Golf: There are several golf courses. Bantry and Skibbereen are closest to the house. Kinsale Golf Club is an 1.5 hour drive away.
