Beautiful base in Ireland's Copper Coast. Perfect location to take advantage of the lovely scenery, hiking, water sports and horse riding. Also great If you want to just relax, unwind & commune with nature.
Beautifully renovated little house/apartment in the quaint village of Annestown in the sunny south east of Ireland. If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing retreat to commune with nature and explore the meandering coastline this is the ideal place to come. Breathtaking cliff walks and lots of hidden beaches to explore. Sea & river kayaking available nearby as well as surf lessons, horse riding & mountain bike tours. The apartment is across the road from the beach in the village. The building itself is quite old but was recently renovated and features stone walls, high ceilings and lots of sunlight. It has its own little courtyard out front. The courtyard separates the apartment from a 300 year old thatched house. The sleepy villages of Annestown is a cluster of little houses and a church a few hundred meters from the beach. There is no shop or pub but both can be obtained in the nearby villages of Dunhill and Fenor where there are lovely Irish pubs with music and food. There is a stunning nature walk along a little boreen by the River Anne to Dunhill Castle. Great historical sites nearby and the ruins of the old Copper Mines in Bonmahon. A few kilometres away is the fishing harbor of Boatstrand which is also a great place for swimming. Annestown is a also a popular surf spot.
The Copper Coast was declared a European Geopark in 2001 and a UNESCO Global Geopark in 2004.

There is no public transport that goes to Annestown. There is a bus that goes along the Copper Coast and it stops in Dunhill which is 4km away.
Please turn off the heat when leaving the house.
Failte was a very lovely host! Although we never met in person, since she was away over sea, she cared from remote, giving us all necessary directions and made us feel welcome even before we arrived. We've met her mother, a very kind person, too, at her place to greet us the next day and tell us about local oppurtunities, like an irish music evening in the pub next village. The cosy apartment is small but very comfortable in a scenic setting with the lovely beach in close vicinity. Thank you very much for this wonderful experience!
Mary Sue was away during our stay but her mother greeted us and made us feel very welcome. The apartment is very comfortable and well equipped. It is located in a quiet seaside village. The nearby beach and cliffs are stunning. Highly recommend this apartment.
Mary Sue was away during our stay, but she had provided us with very clear instructions and useful information about the cottage. Her mother Anne came by to check that everything was ok. Though the cottage is a bit on the small side for two females with gigantic suitcases, it's equipped with all the mod cons, and very comfortable. Also, it was fantastic to have the Annestown beach almost at our doorstep. All in all, this is a great place to quietly relax and rejuvenate oneself.
Great location. comfortable, private cottage. Good value. Host quick to respond to enquiries. A great stay.
We enjoyed our stay in this compact cottage in Annestown. We had been on a self-drive tour of all of Ireland for about 2 weeks and just wanted a day or two of not driving. The cottage and its environs were perfect for this and exactly as advertised. It didn't hurt that the sun came out either! The beach and cliff walks are quite stunning. We found the cottage to be well equipped, bright, comfortable, and quiet. Mary Sue was away but coordinated everything with her mother, Anne, who left no stone unturned to welcome us and make sure we had a pleasant stay. Guests should note that Annestown has only spotty mobile phone coverage and if you need to phone for directions, do so before leaving Tramore. On the other hand, there is only one thatched roof home in Annestown, on the main road, and the cottage is directly behind it (away from the sea).
Excellent!! Five-stars!! Beautiful place and a sweet cottage with 3 rooms (living room & kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom). Comfortable and quiet. Loved the skylights! I fell in love with Annestown and the sweet cottage. Her mother checked on us as well as her friend to be sure we had all the necessities and knew how to get around. Short walk to beach and Dunhill Castle.

I am a nature enthusiast, artist and mother. Love meeting people from different places and swapping stories. Have trotted around the globe for a bit and have a great love for West Africa, but am quite content here in Ireland too. Can't beat the weather.
