Folan’s Cottage is a beautiful architecturally designed holiday home that was rebuilt from two ruined stone cottage and completed in 2010.

The beauty of this area is just breathtaking. The house is right beside a beautiful beach which is almost always deserted because there is no road access. It is safe for swimming and ideal for sand castles and shrimping in local rock pools. There are numerous coastal and hill walks in the immediate area and we are close to the Twelve Bens mountains which have some of the best hiking terrain in the country.
You'll need your own car.
Turf is included, final cleaning is included. Electricity and phone calls are charged extra.
The Cottage was lovely and set in stunning surrounds. We spent Christmas week here, cooked up lots of feasts, went on walks and had the open fire on most of the time. Simon and his housekeeper were both great. I recommend to stay here in any season.
