About this listing
Set in secluded gardens just five min walk to town centre, with its cafes, shops and music pubs. Clonakilty Bay sweeps out to the stunning Inchidoney beach and sits at the gateway to glorious West Cork with its rugged mountains and Atlantic coastline.
Our apartment is unique in that it is set in a peaceful garden setting yet is only 5/10 mins walk down the hill into the centre of Clonakilty, a buzzing small town with many great cafes, pubs, hotels, art centre, music sessions etc.
your apartment is totally self contained, set in our large back garden which we are happy to share with you, sea views from the front garden are stunning.
Interaction with Guests
myself and husband Tom and son Fergus live in the main house, how much we interact with guests is your call. If you want a quiet, uninterrupted stay we will show you around apartment and leave you to it, however our door is always open and am more than happy to share local knowledge, directions, etc.
Clonakilty is a vibrant small coastal town with a long standing music tradition. There is live music in most pubs throughout the Summer, and in 3/4 regular venues during the Winter months. There's a great farmer's market every Fri. with delicious local produce, buskers and great coffee !
There are regular buses from Cork city, these travel through Clon. and continue further West to Skibereen, Schull and Golleen. There is guest parking on site. From Cork airport drive West, through Bandon to Clonakilty. Drive to town centre, at Astna Square head right up McCurtain Hill. Continue up this hill, you will pass the Garda station on your right, carry on up hill until you see a sign on the left for Kilty Cycle Repairs , just after this on the left you will see a row of cottages we are the first one on the left, painted cream with red doors and windows. Our driveway is steep.
pets allowed, mutual respect a good policy I think.
Beautiful well equipped cottage. It was perfect for my stay in West Cork. Highly recommended! Brigid and Tom were very gracious hosts.
Bridgid and Tom are wonderful hosts with a cute and comfortable cottage. Tom greeted me when I arrived, and I met Brigid the next morning.
The cottage is exactly as described and a fine place to stay in Clonakilty. I sat a while in their garden reading on that sunny afternoon, thoroughly enjoying the warmth and comfort.
Fresh milk, butter, and bread were provided, as well as cereals and tea. It made for a nice light breakfast. Tom got up in the rain to help me back into traffic. I'm most grateful for that!
You can walk to town in about 15 minutes, but a car is nice if you want to visit Inchydoney, as the roads are narrow and might be dangerous to walk.
Stop in the shops, chat with the proprietors, everyone in Ireland seems to love a good talk.
This place was great. A little hard to find but we rang tom and he met us on the road. Very nice man, very helpful. The house was clean and very well equipped. As 3 friends staying the only thing is we had to put a towel on the bathroom door as was see through glass but other than that it was a perfect two night stay.
We stayed here for a wedding in Inchadoney, it was perfect, very convenient for visiting Clonakilty and Inchadoney. We stayed for two nights and the apartment was extremely comfortable and good value. Would definitely recommend. The wifi and breakfast supplies were the icing on the cake.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in Brigids kleinem Cottage. Unser erster Urlaub mit unserem einjährigem Sohn. Brigid hat uns sogar noch ein Babybett organisiert, vielen lieben Dank nochmal dafür :-). Das Cottage hatte alles was wir brauchten und war von der Größe optimal für unsere kleine Familie. Als Ausgangspunkt für Tagesausflüge wirklich großartig. Wir würden jederzeit wiederkommen.
Great apartment. Staid with my wife and 2yo boy and it was perfect. My young fellah especially liked the secret garden tucked away at the back of the property. Accommodation itself was warm, cozy and clean with all the essentials provided. No TV, but decent wifi so all good.
Good location. Nice place. Brigid is really friendly. Perfect for short stay.
