About maria archer

I am from Ireland and from Dublin. I love cooking having family and friends around. I fell in love with Baltimore village the first time I stepped into it. The house was the only house I looked at and decided straight away that it was the only one that I wanted to see. It has a lovely warm feel that tells of a happy house that has many happy times and memories.

maria archer purchased this chateau / country house in 1996

Why maria archer chose County Cork

The location is ideal - it is quiet and peaceful, coffee on the terrace looking out at the sea and the boats is just perfect. It is a short walk to the village which has great restaurants and pubs, a playground. Great walks to the beacon. The house itself is really comfortable and perfect for relaxing, the kitchen is ideal for family dinners and entertaining. The garden at the back of the house has lots of herbs for cooking. An outside sink for cleaning fish etc. and a wetroom bathroom - ideal for sailors. The garden is perfect for children playing and bar b ques. It is probably the prettiest garden in the area and full of flowers to be picked for the house all year round.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The two sitting rooms allow for everyone to have space, whether it is grandparents, friends visiting or children playing. The open fire whether needed for warmth just adds a great relaxing, ambiance and we light it all year round. the views are just food for the soul and ideal for a mental break as well as a physical. It is quiet and tucked in nicely in the cove.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Myself and my boyfriend booked the weekend for our 1 year anniversary. First off the house was so cute, and the fire was lit when we arrived. The village was a short walk and we got a pizza from the Jolie Brise the first night, the pizza was amazing! I would recommend stopping off in Skibbereen to pick up groceries and alcohol as there is just a small convenience store in Baltimore. Overall the weekend was superb and a real gem of a house! We have already booked to come back in the summer :-)

Loved the kitchen and the grand tablewhere we all gathered

  • 4 of 5

I really loved the house. It was perfect for my family. I wish the second bathroom was easier to get to but other than that it was fabulous! We could walk to town and the Beacon!

A nice quiet location in the cove with beautiful views of the sea and just a short stroll to the village which has nice pubs and we had a fabulous meal in the Mews restaurant.

The house is lovely , warm, charming and everything you needed was provided. Looking forward to our next visit.

What a fabulous house and location! The house is beautiful and so coay.

  • 5 of 5

The house is so welcoming, as soon as we arrived we lit the fire and felt immediately at home. It has everything that we needed and more. The views as we sat at the kitchen table out to the garden and the sea was beautiful. We enjoyed the welcome bottle of wine and were warm and cosy. We loved the nautical theme and the beautiful flowers that greater us in the garden and in the house. It was s fabulous weekend and we didn't want to leave! We will be back.

A spacious yet extremely cosy cottage set in a lovely quiet cove in Baltimore. The nautical themed pictures and decorations add to the atmosphere of this homely property. There is no shortage of quality kitchen utensils, everything that you need and more is there. there is a comprehensive collection of books and music. Although there is plenty to see in the area there is also plenty of entertainment at the property to keep you occupied if needed. My family would gladly return to this lovely comfortable cottage.

beautiful, relaxing and traditional

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 6 who stayed in this lovely traditional cottage style property. The owner met us there and made us very welcome even though we were a little early she welcomed us in for a drink while she finished off cleaning. The property is a traditional Irish cottage with all amenities to hand. It must be true the Irish like their food as the kitchen had every single conceivable utensil to hand. The downstairs living rooms are extremely cosy with open log fire which makes it all the more homely. Plenty of room upstairs as well along with a bathroom. There is a further shower room and toilet area to the rear which is very handy for washing down when coming in from a day out on the water. Full Wifi which worked very well. We hired a boat down at the harbour (easy walk of about 300yds) and went over to see the islands and a multitude of wildlife including Whales and seals. The little village has a few pubs with good beer and excellent food one or two have music on some nights and there is a shop which sells most of the day to day needs. Everybody was very friendly. Overhaul a fabulous relaxing break with beautiful picturesque surroundings. Highly recommended.

Baltimore is famous for water activities, walking, scenic views, great food. Good for families and adults. Close to local town and local activities. Great fish. Great for exploring - lough Hyne and Skerkin Island. Sherkin is recommended for a trip over, lunch, fabulous beach. The area is great for a complete mental rest, where people are friendly in good form and welcoming. Easy to make friends, great for kids and adults to go to sailing school, diving, fishing and taking a trip on a rib. Sherkin is well known for bird watching. You can make it as busy or a quiet as you wish. Make friends or just chill in your own company.

Baltimore in West Cork is midway between the busy tourist destinations of Dingle and Kinsale. Baltimore is an historic maritime village which is renowned for its restaurants, harbour and water based activities. It is the gateway to the islands of Roaringway Bay which include the enchanting islands of Cape Clear, Sherkin and Heir, all reached by ferry from the pier. Baltimore boasts many festivals running from April to October, covering traditional music, heritage, seafood, historic sailing boats, angling, art, storytelling and walking. For water sports enthusiasts there is sailing, kayaking, snorkelling, diving, power boating, angling and ferries to the islands. The seas of Baltimore are one of the best places for whale watching in Europe and has a year round population of dolphins and seals. Located 9km away is the18 hole golf course of Skibbereen which is set against the backdrop of the internationally known Lough Hyne.
