About This Listing
Beautiful large one bedroom cottage set on an acre of landscaped gardens, close to gourmet restaurants, terrific live music and breath taking scenery, near the water, golf course, amazing marked hill walking trails on The Sheeps Head Way
We are fortunate to be located just off the N71 in a quiet rural location with the fields surrounding the cottage most of the year full with cattle and sheep while at the same time we are within a few minutes drive to all local amenities getting the best of both worlds.
Country Daze is equipped with full cooking facilities,
a microwave, wine rack, TV with DVD player etc.
We are always adding to the DVD collection and the book shelf so that if you should finish your book another is at hand, we encourage people to swap their books if they so desire.
For those of you that would like to plan your vacation in advance there is so much to do from guided hill walks to sailing courses, cookery courses to just great dining you have so many choices to make.
For the keen golfer we are delighted to have an 18 hole golf course designed by Christy O'Connor jnr just 4km from the property with breath taking views it is simply amazing, within an hours drive in either direction there are several more great courses on offer also.
Our own house is adjacent from the property and we are generally around most evenings to assist in any planning for the following day or a lift into town if you did not want to take the car.
We have a minimum stay of two days from October to April, if you need anymore information we would gladly assist if you drop us an email.

Terrific location to visit and see what The Sheep's Head has to offer. Challenging cycle routes and well marked hill walking trails while at all times watching the changing landscape.
Really recommend you hire a car

What a place! We stayed at Sheila’s place for a weekend and it was wonderful. The house is ideally located, only 5 min from Bantry and just beside the national road.
Sheila was really kind. She patiently answered all our questions and even left some food for us.
The apartment offers everything that you need and even more. It is really clean, tidy and comfortable. It was nice to arrive in the evening and just chill out.
The place is perfect for couples that are looking to relax in a quiet area but also want plenty of activities to do and things to see.
I recommend it 100%! Thanks a million Sheila! I hope to come back soon!
The photos don't do the place justice, its beautiful. The house is finished to an excellent degree, with nice big tiles, high ceiling, lots of windows, and a big comfy bed. Its only a few minutes away from Bantry town, but the silence is deafening and the stars are mind-blowing. Luckily, we got some nice weather while we were there.
We highly recommend this to anyone exploring West Cork, or in need of a quiet getaway to the countryside.
Sheila is a great host too, who obviously takes her hospitality seriously, providing us with fresh milk, eggs, bacon and sausages. Thanks Sheila!
Sheila was the perfect host and was very informative. The Accommodation exceeded our expectations and she had everything you could possibly need. Photos don't really do this place justice. It was a lot bigger and everything appears new and finished to a high standard.
There was a personalised message for us on arrival which was a lovely touch with all the info and local events for the weekend of our stay in the surrounding areas. Another surprise was there was full fry up supplies in the fridge. Sheila also offered to drive us into town which was very nice of her but we decided to stay in and have drinks instead.
Would highly recommend this place and we might even stay @ Country Daze in the future as we really did enjoy our stay here.
About the Host, Sheila
We are a very active family that loves the outdoor life, I like to cycle most of the year and hill walk our local hills during the Summer months seeing something different on each peak.
We like meeting people and would like all our guests to enjoy what we have on our doorstep while staying with us.
Great views, great instructors
Beautiful historic house with a hundred step climb that commands superior views of the bay and gardens, the coffee shop has delicious chocolate cake also!!
Tasty local cheese made just a few kilometers away
Amazing cookery courses on from one day to full weeks
Any person that golfs must play this course, don't get distracted by the views
Great day out on the sea and you might even be lucky to have a school of dolphins follow you
