I live and work in London but I know and love Ireland from my childhood. It has always been a special place for me and I am glad to still have this house to make this connection with the country strong.

Mill Race House purchased this cottage in 1990

This was my grandmothers house and it is very dear to me, I am renting it so that it stays in the family. I hope that it brings as much joy to you as much as it does me.

The magnificent thing about this house is you feel completely closed of from the world and totally at piece, however you are mere metres from the lively little town of Durrus. It is very comfortable and has a warm feel to it and there are plenty of great bars nearby so if you fancy ducking out of the quiet life it is easily done!

WONDERFUL !

  • 5 out of 5
We loved our stay in Mill Race house ! It was like stepping back from our hectic lives for a brief magical spell. Our host Harry could not have been more efficient or helpful ! The satellite navigation co ordinates on the directions saved us , arriving unruffled and without 'divorce type ' rows on the way! We found the house charming,well equipped and comfortable. Situated at the edge of Durrus, it felt like being in the country ,yet it was just a 3 minute walk to the shops and ,more importantly the pubs ! We staggered back quite happily from 'the local',without having to get behind the wheel of the car ! The countryside is beautiful ,undulating and by the sea ,with lots of little coves and beaches to explore. Bantry is nearby and has great music as well as Bantry house and gardens.Our visit was too short and we would love to go back and stay for longer next time.

Great house, loved being on the edge of the village which is charming and so are the people. Bantry is a great town, delicious local food and we loved the market on Friday. Beautiful beaches and scenery so will definitely be coming back.

The small town of Durrus has to offer restaurants, bars, scenic walks in local countryside, Irish charm and hospitality, live music, and the many bays within a ten to twenty minute walk.

You are a ten minute drive from Bantry which can offer sea fishing, golf, a wider selection of bars, music and restaurants. There is also a charming market in the market square and many historical sights such as Bantry House.

There are further attractions throughout the county such as Blarney castle and the famous Blarney Stone. The English Market in Cork city and the many museums within the Capitol. The fantastic live music in Clonakility and it's market. Kinsale town has a wide variety of excellent restaurants and the harbour port has a number of entertaining distractions.
