Traditional style stone cottage on an elevated one acre site with sensational, extraordinary unrestricted southward views over Dunmanus Bay and set in the most sought after area of Dunbeacon near Durrus, South West Cork.
The cottage is located on Mizen Head Peninsula. It's light and spacious and furnished to a very high standard. It was designed to maximise the spectacular views of Dunmanus Bay, Mount Gabriel, Sheep's Head Peninsula and beautiful countryside.
The accommodation includes an open plan living room with kitchen and sun room. Wood burning stove, three large luxurious bedrooms, stylishly traditional with master bedroom including en suite bathroom. Family bathroom and utility room. The many features incorporate double glazed windows, natural pine wood finishes, slate floors, and newly installed oil fired central heating.
Superb peaceful location near Durrus, yet only ten minutes from popular villages of Schull, Ballydehob, Goleen. Twenty minutes approximately from market towns of Bantry, Glengariff, Skibereen and Baltimore.
Sandy beaches at Barley Cove and Crookhaven, fishing, golf, walking and cycling routes in abundance with the popular South Durrus and Mount Corrin Trail nearby. Several rustic pubs for hearty grub and gourmet dining available locally.
"This cottage was excellent, both inside and out, with a wonderful location and views and a very helpful, friendly caretaker. Cannot praise it highly enough and would definitely recommend it for a peaceful and relaxing break and good value for money."
We would be awarding our stay 5 stars were it not for several maintenance issues that we encountered.
The cottage is well built and has great views of Dunmanus Bay.
However lack of attention to preventative maintenance by the owner meant that we had to deal with several issues, the most serious of which was the potentially defective oil-fired central heating system. Thanks to Anna, the very helpful and positive housekeeper, these were mostly dealt with quite quickly.
Note that the charges for electricity and fuel oil are quite a lot higher than their cost to the landlord and could add up quickly, if the weather is not cooperating. To be fair, in our case, the landlord agreed to reduce what we owed by more than half.
The prepay WIFI system costs can mount up, and requires access to an Irish Freephone number, which our US cell phones could not call. However, the local store in Durrus will let you use their phone to make a prepayment.
Great location - in a lovely landscape with great views - off a very quite road, close to Durrus, and within easy striking distance to Ballydehob and Skull or the Sheep's Head. Pretty standard Irish holiday home: clean and well maintained, just as shown on Trip Advisor really.
We spent a week in Dunmanus view and we wished we could have stay longer.Very comfortable and big common rooms so we could all spend time together easily.Views from the house are amazing, we had to force ourselvs to get around to other places as we were just very happy to be in the house and it's beautiful outsides.
The house feels like a real home from home, spacious yet cosy. The house is very welcoming and had an individual personal touches.
Highly recommend for those who want to get away from the city hassle for a while.
The kitchen is well equipped , the views from the house are truly amazing, house location is spot on and a landlord is on the ball!
Cottage was really well maintained and furnished, very clean and had everything we needed. Lovely welcome from Anna who explained everything. There are so many lovely walks, drives, beaches, restaurants and pubs fairly nearby - too many to mention. The instructions to take rubbish and recycling to Bantry was unhelpful. Something more guest friendly would have been appreciated.
The house is very pleasant and clean
The guest woman is very kind
The landscape is magnifical
