A country cottage near Glengarriff, near Bantry Bay, South-west Ireland, set in 5 acres of dramatic landscape on the Beara Peninsula. Sleeps 4 with 2 bedrooms. The cottage is situated within the warming Gulf Stream that comes down Ireland’s west coast. Only 90 minutes drive from Cork airport or ferry terminal, Lough Avaul is an ideal holiday location for those who want peace and quiet. It is also accessible from Kerry Airport by driving over the Caha Mountains.
Overlooking Seal Harbour and itself overlooked by the Cahas, The Cottage is conveniently situated 3 miles from the friendly small town of Glengarriff, with its shops, pubs and restaurants. There is a trout lake (Upper Lough Avaul) within 500 metres of the cottage. It is only a short walk down the hill to nearby Seal Harbour, where a rocky headland stretches out to the ocean, and bathing is possible from rocks. Seals can sometimes be seen. The weather is pleasant throughout the region and there are many sandy beaches nearby for summer bathing.
Our family has owned this holiday home for over 20 years. Over the years we have enjoyed many visits to Glengarriff and now we return with our children who love exploring the Irish coast.
The cottage has wonderful views and it benefits from the warming jet stream. The sea air is so refreshing, we all sleep so soundly. My favourite place to visit is Garnish Islands, the gardens are beautiful and you normally see seals sunning themselves on the rocks.
The property has sea views and close to local attractions near Glengarriff, including Garnish Island, Seal Harbour, Barley Lake, the Healy Pass, the LoughAvual lake and Golf courses. Ideal for walkers, fishing, golf, boating. The nearby town of Bantry has excellent restaurants, an attractive harbour and is steeped in history. The location of the house gives ideal access to the whole of the Bera Peninsular and the ring of Kerry.
