Bay House, Durrus, Bantry, is situated in a spectacular location at the very head of Dunmanus Bay, with stunning and uninterrupted south facing views.
Durrus village sits at the head of the Mizen and Sheep's Heads peninsula - a great base for exploring West Cork & Ireland's "Wild Atlantic Way".
There are numerous marked walks on both peninsulas to suit all of all abilities. You can find out more information on these walks by looking at; www.thesheepsheadway.ie, irishtrails.ie, www.activeme.ie and www.discoverireland.ie/walking.
The house is spacious and very well equipped. It has five beautifully appointed bedrooms, consisting of three double bedrooms rooms all looking out over the bay (each with a king-size bed), one has an en-suite bathroom with bath, power shower and WC.
There are two twin bedrooms (located at the rear of the house) and two further bathrooms, each with a separate bath, a power shower and WC.
All bed linen is pure cotton and all of the bedding and pillows are of top quality. We provide bath towels, hand towels and face cloths for all guests. Beach towels are also provided for each guest.
For the younger members of the family, there is a travel cot, a high chair, a "Stocke" dining chair and a baby bath.
The living area consists of a generous open plan sitting room/dining room & kitchen.
There is an American style fridge/freezer with ice machine, a blu ray 5.1 surround sound system, a 46" LED flat screen TV, an iPOD docking station, leather sofas, dining table, with benches & chairs to seat 10 and a log burner with glass at the sides as well as the front.
Wifi is free of charge and covers all areas of the house.
There is a separate utility room with a washing machine/tumble dryer, a dishwasher, a microwave and an additional fridge/freezer.
The sun porch doubles as a children's playroom. Here they will find numerous toys and books for many age groups. There are also plenty of jigsaw puzzles and games to be found in the top of the cloak cupboard - and for the parents and grandparents too!
All of the living and sleeping accommodation is on one level. This is ideal when there are different generations of families. It can also be very useful to those who find it difficult with stairs and different ground levels.
There is a large table with benches on the outside terrace. In the wooden shed you will find a charcoal barbecue with tools and the plastic buckets & spades for the beach. There is also ample room in here to store your walking boots, wetsuits, body boards, dinghy and any other paraphernalia that goes with a wonderful holiday in West Cork.
In front of the house is almost an acre of lawn with direct access to a shingle and slate beach. Don't forget to fetch the buckets & spades from the shed for crab catching! .
Bay House is at the end of a private lane - this may be unsuitable for some sports cars.
Whether you are enjoying a break with family & friends in West Cork, a golfing trip to one of the many beautiful golf courses in Ireland or a painting holiday with some of the most spectacular scenery on our doorstep, Bay House is the perfect place for you!
