STUNNING WATERFRONT LOCATION WITH PANORAMIC OCEAN VIEWS AND PRIVATE PIER

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday bungalow in Mizen Head - The Log Cabin

3 bedrooms (with toilet and wash facilities), 1 full bathroom, sleeps 7-9

This new to the rental market “Log Cabin” home is located on the seashore at Spanish Cove and less than 1 mile from Goleen Village, West Cork, Ireland.

The house consists of 3 double bedrooms each with toilet and wash facilities. There is a large open plan dining/sitting area with galley kitchen and fireplace, utility room with fold down double bed, bathroom (electric shower) with toilet and hot-press, conservatory fronting on to the sea, balcony with outdoor dining area and garden extending right down to the sea. Complimentary coal is provided for the fire. Oil fired central heating is available. Usage of oil is measured and charged at cost. There is a walkway down to a private pier also part of the property.

From the front of the house looking left is Goleen harbour, straight ahead is Cape Clear and to the right is the Fastnet Rock. Further to the right (south) is the Crookhaven lighthouse and entrance to Crookhaven Harbour and Village.Further south around the corner is Barleycove beach and the Mizen Head. Mizen Head is Ireland’s most south-westerly point.

THE CORK REGION.

Home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland.

Goleen.

Goleen village was built in the nineteenth century at a crossroads where cattle fairs were regularly held. The wide road winds through the village, where all the houses were originally built as shops. To the left of the village is the hidden harbour from which the village takes its name. “Goilin” (little inlet) is easily recognisable once you venture down the lane beside O’Meara’s pub. Although a good portion of the harbour area dries at low tide, giving a great feeding for a variety of wildlife including foxes and pheasants, there is a deepwater quay at the entrance to accommodate fishing boats, pleasure boats and yachts.

Crookhaven.

Crookhaven harbour is as picturesque today as it was useful in its heyday, being a large and sheltered harbour. You pass the old Roadstone Quarry on the side of the mountain, which provided metalling for the roads of Wales until 1939. There are numerous Bronze Age field monuments scattered through the hills surrounding Crookhaven. (The Ordnance Survey Discovery Series map 88 will indicate the whereabouts for you.) The village of Crookhaven has a distinguished history as the last port of call for ships journeying to and from America. Over the centuries ships stocked up with provisions here before tackling the Atlantic Ocean. All the shipping lines had agents located here to tell the ships in which port their cargo had been sold. At the beginning of the 20th century it was said that you could cross the harbour on the decks of the boats moored there. At that time 700 people lived and worked in the village against the 40 permanent residents who reside here today. Marconi came here to try to send his first radio message across the Atlantic and he fitted the first telegraphic equipment to the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse to communicate with the passing ships.

Mizen Head.

The Mizen Peninsula at Ireland’s most south-westerly point is world renowned for the beauty of its rugged landscape and ancient heritage. A tour of the Mizen Ring gives you a chance to immerse yourself in the various strands that make the Mizen unique, from geology, flora, birds and fauna to the influence of man and his history on the landscape. Well worth a visit. Another gem of the Mizen Peninsula is Three Castles Head, where the three castles which are three Tower Houses with curtain walling. Built in the 15th century on the site of a Bronze Age Promontory Fort, the Castles stand sentinel beside a cliff top lake.

Barleycove.

Barleycove is a large sand beach backed by sand dunes. Reputedly the sand dunes were thrown up in the tidal wave which swept Europe after the earthquake in Lisbon in 1755. Today the dunes have been partially eroded but are protected, like much of the coastal land around this area, as European designated “Special Areas of Conservation”. The road goes to the east of the beach across a causeway bisecting Lisagriffin Lakes and at the T junction you turn left for the Mizen.

GOLEEN CABIN- JUST AMAZING AND MAGICAL PLACE

  • 5 out of 5
We spent the month of May at this cabin. It had three bedrooms, an open concept space for the livingroom, dining and kitchen. Everything you would need except groceries is in the cabin. You can purchase groceries in Schull, a short distance away and is a pleasure to visit. Milk, bread and small essentials are available in Goleen which is just down the road.

The hosts Nora and Sean are very gracious hosts. They met us on arrival at the cabin. They showed us around their home. They had butter, bread, biscuits and wine for us.

All of this is just the essentials of a vacation. It is the view that makes this place magical.
The lot had direct access to view the ocean as you are on cliffs, it also has a pier that you can access. It has three tiers of patio. One wood with table and chairs then under that two stone covered with patio chairs and then a third walking area.

My husband and I stayed the whole month but our children flew in for two weeks stay. The day we drove to the cottage with them, we immediately took them to see the ocean view and up popped a seal. They snapped a picture. Magical!

The Fastnet Rock Lighthouse is visible from the living room window and its light can be seen at night. The conservatory, dining, living room and third bedroom have views of the ocean. The side yard is grass and there is plenty of parking.

Barley Cove Beach is just a few miles away and Mizenhead is close by.

We visited in May so we expected weather typical of Ireland but I believe this was a cool spring. We needed to have the heat on at least once a day most days.

This is a magical place where ocean life can be observed, peace and quiet found and an experience never forgotten.

Thank you, Sean and Nora. It was a blessing not forgotten.

AMAZING!! WE LOVED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS PROPERTY.

  • 5 out of 5
Everything was just as described. We caught fish the first night from the dock, and ate them. Delicious. The lobster fishermen put the pots out right off the shore, we bought lobster, stone crab claws, crabs right from the fishermen. Cooked them right in the cabin, with lots of drawn fresh Irish butter. We hiked and saw all the sights from this southwesterly point from the Mizen head, (put their café, on your list for a lunch spot) Barley Cove, Three Castlehead as far north as Killarney and as far east as Skibberreen. We were there an entire month and did not have enough time and we explored everyday. Absolutely beautiful. Seals were on the rocks, and mussels were in abundance. Everyday was a God given masterpiece of sunrises and sunsets, once in a while a fog or mist would roll in but even that is beautiful, from the conservatory. We had sweater weather the entire time and we are from Florida. Our friends could not believe our son swam at Barley Cove Beach on October 5th, but it was beautiful. We were there 30 days and brought home over 400 pictures, Sheep, Cattle, rolling green pastures right down to the ocean. Every rock bluff is unique. We do not know how we will ever see all the counties of Ireland if the others are as gorgeous as County Cork. The cabin was a blessing, it is cozy and the setting is spectacular. Everything you will need is provided, along with maps, brochures, umbrellas, (which we did not need). etc. Sean and Nora are lovely and helpful every step of the way. We did stay at Cork international Hotel before the flight out as it left at 7am, we wish we stayed there one night upon arrival as driving on the left for two hours after a 15 hour flight was a bit much. The rental car company even delivered us to the hotel when we returned the car. Our trip was absolutely delightful. We are ready to return to Ireland in the spring.

VERY ATTRACTIVE HOUSE ON SUPERB LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We had a brilliant holiday in this private location over the water. The views you simply can't get enough of, change by the hour. It has it's own private pier where it was wonderful to sit and drift off to the swish and gurgle of the swell, Grounds are well kept and attractively laid out Brought our own 6m RIB but didn't feel the need to go out that often here, unlike other places where we just had to escape the tedium using the boat 2 no matter how bad the weather was. The house has a really nice feel to it which adds greatly to the whole experience. We rented a villa with a car in Tahiti last year for a month.. the whole thing was so bad that ( despite the embarrased efforts of the owners) we paid to have our tickets changed and came home 2 weeks early. This could not happen here. We are booking for next. year.

HEAVEN ON EARTH

  • 5 out of 5
Actually, 5* is an insufficient rating for this property. A new category needs to be devised to indicate the pure perfection under which it falls. It is as I say heaven on earth.

Pictures cannot do this property justice. Perched directly on the coastline with 180 degree uninterrupted sea views, it is truly amazing. Sun rises directly in front of the deck. I rose every morning at 6.30 am just to appreciate the calm and glory and stunning beauty of the day.

The house itself is stocked with EVERY possible thing you could need. Sean and Nora greeted us upon our arrival and waved us off on our departure and where so truly hospitable in opening what is in essence their own private holiday home. They were accommodating to such a degree that they managed to organize the most fantastic weather Ireland has experienced in over 40 years. We had seven days of blue, cloudless, sun drenched days in this paradise.

I could fill screens on the beauty and divineness of this property but let me assure you that should be clever and wise enough to select this property as your holiday destination, you will enjoy the stay of your life. Happy vacation time.

ERHOLUNG PUR!

  • 5 out of 5
Im Mai 2013 verbrachten wir (Pärchen) eine Woche im Haus von Nora und Sean.
Die Kommunikation im Voraus hat prima geklappt, alle offenen Fragen wurden beantwortet!
Bei Ankunft wurden wir sehr herzlich empfangen (einschließlich einer Flasche Wein und ein paar Kleinigkeiten fürs erste Frühstück waren auch im Kühlschrank zu finden). Uns wurden die wichtigsten Dinge gezeigt und erklärt, weitere Details waren einem Ordner zu entnehmen (Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, Ausflugsziele etc.). Die Nebenkosten werden extra abgerechnet – ordnungsgerecht lt. Zählerstände.
Das Haus war perfekt ausgestattet. Es gab nichts was wir hätten vermissen können (Waschmaschine einschl. Waschmittel, Trockner, Wäschespinne, Bügelbrett und Bügeleisen…bis hin zur Spülmaschine (einschl. Tabs), Gasgrill auf der Terrasse, Gartenmöbel + Auflagen, TV+DVD+Musikanlage mit Anschluss für I-POD, Fernglas um die Seehunde zu beobachten…)
Bis zum nächsten Strand sind es etwa 10 Km. Es ist wohl möglich vom Grundstück aus ins Wasser zu gelangen, jedoch ist dies nicht sehr komfortabel.
Im Ort gibt es Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Supermarkt, Gemüsehändler, Metzger) und auch ein Restaurant, bis zur nächst größeren Stadt sind es etwa 30 Min. per Auto (Bantry).
Wenn man ein Plätzchen zum Entspannen sucht, einfach nur Ruhe möchte und das alles mit Meerblick dann ist man hier genau richtig aufgehoben!!!
Wir würden uns jederzeit wieder hier einbuchen.

Mizen Head.

The property is five miles from Mizen Head, the most south-westerly point in Ireland. In addition to the fog signal station located there, which is open to visitors, you will find a fascinating interpretive centre. Access to the original lighthouse keepers’ dwellings, is over the famous footbridge which spans a sea gorge at a height of 45 metres. Completed in 1909 and rebuilt in 2011, the bridge was the first reinforced concrete bridge in Ireland.

Swimming. About 3 miles away you will find the large expanse of Barley cove beach washed by the Atlantic Ocean where the breakers often attract surfers. Other more secluded beaches are also in the area.
