My cottage is suitable for people that want to enjoy the peace and quite of the country side but not completely isolated as it is quite close to the picturesque villages of Schull and Ballydehob.
kitchen and living space are open plan with three bedrooms adjacent.
My cottage is unique because it has panoramic views of all of roaring water bay which includes the islands of Cape Clear, Sherkin, Castle and Horse island to name a few. it also gives guests the unique view of the atlantic ocean in its calmest and its wildest days with huge waves breaking over the fastnet rock to the western end of Cape Clear. This cottage comfortably fits 6 people can accommodate more if needs be.
Guests will have access to all of the cottage and the large garden outside but also I live and work on my farm which surrounds the cottage guests can come and help out with the milking and any other work they may feel they would like to do to make there stay more enjoyable. local amenities are quite close the old Ballydehob Schull walk trail is only 5 minutes walk from the cottage which will take guest back to the late 18th century when it was then used for horse drawn carriages and people walking to and from the towns. The trail also takes you to Derreennatra pier which is lovely for a swim and take photo of while sitting up the large Monteray pine tree which is over a 170 years old..
Interaction with Guests
Yes I would love to get to know my guests either through working with on the farm or socialising in the local pub. But this is entirely up to my guests if they want to take a rest and completely switch off from the outside world that is there choice. I will be around as much as possible I live just down the road and will be tending to animals up and around the cottage most days.
Michael was a great host. I would recommend this cottage to anyone who has a chance to go. He provided us with spot on directions so we wouldn't get lost. The view from the cottage was breathtaking. The place was clean and welcoming. The best part of the stay would have to be getting to milk the cows and feed the 2 day old baby cows. Michael was very friendly and open to showing us what he does on a daily basis. Couldn't have asked for a better host.
I would highly recommend a stay in Michael's cottage. He is an excellent host; having the cottage prepared immaculately for us on arrival with the heating on and the fire set for lighting. He is an absolute gent!
The accommodation itself is excellent; spacious, homely, picturesque.
The location is excellent for anyone looking for a break in West Cork; a short distance from both Schull and Ballydehob. The view from the front of the cottage is beautiful.
Thanks Michael, we'll be back!!
My mother, my partner, and I spent 3 nights at Corr an Droma and it was the highlight of our 10 day trip to Ireland. The cottage is well appointed with everything you could need. Bed are very comfortable. The setting is absolutely amazing. The cottage sits on a hill overlooking the bay. At night, you can see the rotating light from the lighthouse that sits out on a small island in the water. The cottage is a short 5 min drive to the town of Schull where you have your choice of two grocery shops and several bars / restaurants. We used the cottage as our home base and took several short trips. I would HIGHLY recommend checking out Healy pass on the Beara Peninsula (mountain pass with gorgeous views and sheep everywhere!!). Michael was very friendly and made it a point to meet us and offer suggestions for what to see / what to do. We hope to be back again soon!!! Excellent. A++++++
We had a very nice time in Michael's cottage.
The house is very comfortable with an amazing view on the bay.
I hope I'll have the opportunity to come back sometime.
We could not have been happier with our stay at Michael's house. The house itself and the view were gorgeous, and Michael was a pleasure to work with. I would love to stay here again sometime!
Michael and Peter the dog were very welcoming. The information he gave us was very helpful.
The house is very well equipped, cosy and pet friendly. We wanted for nothing.
The location and views are fantastic. There are great walking trails next to the house. The town of Schull is only 7 mins by car, but we walked most of the time.
We will definitely be returning to Corr an Droma.
Absolutely amazing time! We got to decorate a tree and enjoy the relaxed irish countryside. It was perfect.
