The Space

Built in 1928, this traditional farm workers' cottage is set in an acre of ground, just 2 miles from the stunningly beautiful 'Redbarn' beach. The cottage comprises a simple dwelling with a combined living room and kitchen furnished with traditional hand made dresser and cupboards made by a local crafts man, Brian Coffee. The crockery is handmade from Stephen Pearce pottery. We have a patio for outside dining and an orchard for eating apples, plums, pears and mulberries yummmmm! we have a stereo system with an ipod dock and a small television. We love to cook, so the kitchen is well appointed with saucepans and cooking utensils. There is a small double bed room, a bedroom with twin beds and a single bedroom (which would be most suited to a child) that has to be walked through to go to the shower room. You will love sitting in our cosy living room with the cast-iron stove.
Our caretaker, Tania lives not far away and is always on hand to help with any problem and can provide useful local knowledge. she is the daughter in law of Tony Fitzgerald who who died in march of 2015.
Our cottage is in peaceful countryside, safe for children and within easy reach of Cork city, Kinsale , and Blarney castle with it's famous stone!
