Great Location, Great View, Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to begin your day and to end it. The view never disappoints and the house is very comfortable and well furnished. The bathrooms are all very modern and clean(also plenty of hot water), the kitchen is modern and easy to use. We enjoyed sitting outside and watching the weather change moment by moment. The house is situated about 15 minutes from Clonakilty. This is a wonderful Irish village, Fun to walk around, good places to eat and good shopping. The Irish people never disappoint. We had a great time.

Mezmorizing view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a mini family reunion at Sea Spray November 19th - 24th before we set out to explore the northern part of the Republic of Ireland. We experienced the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets over the Ballinglana Cove. We were actually surprised by the number we got to enjoy as we expected much more rain that we got.

The home has a great layout with comfortable furniture, and once we figured out the hot water booster so that we all had hot water for showers we all were happy campers.

The only thing I would suggest for future guests of Sea Spray is to be sure to arrive your first day while there is sun light. The address was not on Google maps, and we got a little lost trying to find it in the dark. Otherwise ourstay was wonderful!

Thank you Doris for sharing your preserves and other goodies. We also left some firewood and other goodies for your next guests.

We will always remember our time in Clonakilty and Sea Spray.

Forever your friends in Sweet Home Alabama, USA

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

180 degree view of the sea with a beautiful view of the coastline. We never got tired of the view and were sad to leave. The house is beautifully furnished. Everything you could need in the kitchen. Comfortable beds. Doris, the hostess, is very responsive. A great base for exploring County Cork but we were always ready to get home and soak in the view.

Sweet memories of Sea Spray

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week out in Ballinglanna Cove at Sea Spray. The view is tremendous and the house is nicely decorated and comfortable. It's in a quiet, relaxing spot and the location near Clonakilty is ideal for making a few day trips around West Cork. However, we could have just sat and stared out at the view all week with a cup of tea and not moved. Terrific walks around the neighborhood. We'd definitely recommend Monk's Lane for a lovely dinner over in Timoleague. Oak Fire Pizza in Clonakilty is some of the best pizza I've had in Ireland. If you like horse/pony trekking, the stables next to the hotel in Courtmacsherry are very accommodating, no matter what your skill level. We'd highly recommend this property for a great getaway.

Our stay at Sea Spray was nothing less than perfect. This home on Clonakilty Bay gave us a waterfront retreat that would be the perfect in any part of the world but just happens to be in West Cork Ireland. We had coffee every morning out on the veranda enjoying the peace and tranquility only the ebb and flow of the sea can provide. It was with Sea Spray’s breathtaking views that we would plan our day of exploration of Cork, Kinsale, Mizen …to name a few. All while knowing we would return to recap our adventures of the day with a glass of wine back out on the veranda as the sun went down.

Sea Spray’s location is ideal. You feel like you are far far away from city life, yet in truth you are within a few miles and a few minutes to the perfectly quaint town of Clonakilty. We enjoyed the shopping and dining in Clonakilty, but the people are truly what make the experience so nice.

While staying at Sea Spray, we learned a great deal about the Passive Haus concept used to rebuild/remodel this home. For anyone suffering from allergies or asthma the air quality in this house is perfect. We were able to admire and appreciate the high quality materials used to rebuild this home to the Passive Haus standard all while finding it very comfortable and truly easy to enjoy.

We would highly recommend this home and experience to anyone.

Wunderschönes Haus mit traumhaftem Meerblick

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Haus samt seiner exponierten Lage am Atlantik ist wirklich ein Highlight. Wir (4 Erwachsene) hatten drei sehr schöne Wochen in Irland, woran auch das Haus einen sehr großen Anteil hatte.

Das Haus ist sehr gut und zudem auch hochwertig ausgestattet.

Die Terrasse ist ebenfalls mit vielen verschiedenen Sitz- und Liegemöbeln ausgestattet, sodass jeder ein wunderschönes Plätzchen für sich findet, um die grandiose Aussicht zu genießen.

Frau Knoebel ist eine sehr nette Vermieterin, die sich um die Gäste kümmert, dieses aber ganz unaufdringlich tut. Wir hätten Sie jederzeit kontaktieren können.

Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen und werden selber auch auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

Clonakilty is the ideal destination from which the regions of West Cork and Kerry can be explored. These are the undisputed scenically the most beautiful parts of Ireland. Clonakilty is the 'beach center' of Ireland with countless sandy beaches, bays and harbors that need to be explored. The famous 'Ring of Kerry' is a trip that you do not want to miss. The natural charm of the surrounding countryside is impressive and memorable. The nature reserve for birds is a particular feature and 201 different species have been recorded around Clonakilty.
