Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday cottage in Ireland - The Cottage

5 bedroom cottage overlooking Dunmanus bay

The Cottage is part of the Blairscove estate. Though secluded in its own 1.5 acre garden it is just steps away from the well known restaurant. On the ground floor the house has a double and a twin bedroom with a large shared bathroom and separate toilet. The living area consists of a very generous open plan living / dining / kitchen area as well as a small conservatory. The whole downstairs is wheelchair friendly with extra wide doors, no door sills and plenty of space to maneuver.

The upstairs features a large landing which doubles as additional play area as well as two single rooms with their own shower room and a large double room with its own small bathroom. The house is perfect for two families allowing each their own space.

The house and garden overlook Dunmanus bay and steps lead down to the stony fore shore. Adjacent is a large playing field ideal for family ball games.

The Cottage is very family friendly and a cot and high chair are provided.

Pets are considerd.

A memorial week in The Cottage - Blairscove West

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4, 2 adults, 2 children age 9 & 10 and the daughter of a french friend age 11, my parents and our family dog stayed in the cottage last week. We had a super time.The house was very well equipped and in perfect order - clean tidy and well looked after with excellent attention to detail. The setting is amazing, views that are unforgetable. A large grass lawn for the kids & dog to chase around on. Down to the private pebbly beach to look for interesting shells and stones. The view from the breakfast room onto the garden and the view from the sitting room to the bay were beautiful. We had a very relaxing time in The Cottage, and indeed have booked for the same week next year. That's something we have never done before in 13 years of being together! The restaurant in Blairscove (across the aforementioned grass is excellent. West Cork is a real foodie place but out best meal by far was in Blairscove. Many thanks to Sabine, Phillipe & Cathy and the rest of the team for a superb time.

Ein guter Ort.

  • 5 of 5

Seit zehn Jahren verbringen wir in jedem Sommer wunderbare Tage im Blairs Cove Cottage. Schon die Lage des Hauses ist gut gewählt. – Vor Wind und Wetter geschützt und doch so nah an der Dunmanus Bay, etwas abseits vom Haus der liebenswerten Gastgeber, von den Appartements und dem Blairs Cove Restaurant und doch nicht zu einsam gelegen – gibt uns sofort das Gefühl des Geborgenseins.

Das Haus selbst bietet mit der geschickten großzügigen Raumaufteilung genug Möglichkeiten, mit Freunden zu kochen, zu speisen, zu plaudern, aber es gibt auch genug Platz, um sich mal zurückzuziehen. Der Blick über die Wiese durch die Bäume auf die Dunmanus Bay ist phantastisch. Die Einrichtung ist bequem und komfortabel und mit viel Geschmack ausgesucht.

Wir haben in all den Jahren mit unseren Freunden sehr schöne Tage und Abende an diesem Ort verbracht.

Die Umgebung hier in West Cork ist immer aufs Neue atemberaubend schön. Ob man den Sheeps Head Way erwandert, ob man sich wieder darin versucht, den Bantry Bay Golf Course zu besiegen, und dabei immer wieder von der Schönheit des Platzes überwältigt wird, ob man die Garteninsel vor Glengarriff bewundert: „Water and Ground in their extremity“ steht in Stein gehauen an einem der vielen Aussichtspunkte auf dem Sheeps Head Way.

2010 sind wir wieder da.
