Homely four bedroom cottage overlooking the beautiful Dunmanus Bay. A destination for all seasons - cuddle up beside an open fire in winter, or in fairer weather enjoy award winning scenic walking routes the length of the peninsula.
Rosskerrig Holiday House is set in the idyllic surrounds of West Cork, on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula overlooking the beautiful Dunmanus Bay, between Ahakista and Kilcrohane villages. The charming house has a south facing aspect which allows for the best views of the picturesque countryside, across Dunmanus Bay to the Mizen Peninsula.
The property includes three double rooms, two of which are ensuite, and a twin room. The property has central heating, as well an open fire (lovely for those brisk winters nights!) in the spacious living room, and a separate large kitchen / dining room with all mod-cons.
A warm welcome awaits in any of the local bars and restaurants, with food options available (happy to provide some local recommendations) to suit all budgets. In a addition to the many walking and cycling routes for which the peninsula is famous, other local leisure activities include, swimming, fishing, kayaking, sailing and cookery classes to name but a few...
In addition to the many local sights and activities, the property is also an excellent stop-off point on the Wild Atlantic Way - a 2,500km tourism trail (driving route) along the west coast of Ireland, from Cork to Donegal, which takes in some of the countries most breath taking scenery.
It's peaceful, tranquil with endless fresh air!

Had a great time in Ahakista. The hosts were great and the house was exactly what we needed. Highly recommended.
This was a beautiful home that truly left us with a country experience. Michael was there when we arrived and quickly made us a reservation at the closest restaurant since we had been traveling for a very long time. The home was immaculate with more bathrooms and bedrooms than we even needed. I thoroughly enjoyed the cows that were within feeding distance of the home and very friendly! We would highly suggest driving to Sheep's Head for the day an enjoy the amazing scenery!
Mary and Michael are lovely hosts - they looked well after us. The house is in a great location and has fabulous views. Very well equipped, clean and spacious house, nice and modern inside. If you want that 'West Cork feel' - its a great place to stay! We had a couple of great days and we would recommend it!
