There is an excellent restaurant in the village, and 3 pubs, offering traditional music during the summer season and on Bank Holiday Week-ends.

This picturesque village is steeped in history and has its own mine Museam giving details of the mining era that was in the area. There is also a large well equipped children's playground that is easily supervised, while Mums & Dads relax and sample the sights etc. alongside.

Sandy beach nearby Closeby is the Cable Car to Dursey Island, the only one of its kind to cross water in Western Europe.

  • Staying with Jerry and Ger was awesome! We got to see an area of Ireland that we had not yet experienced since we were venturing off from a school-led trip. Jerry showed us all of the great areas and told us what to visit and what we could skip. The house was very spacious and we had ample room to lounge around in. Both hosts were very accommodating and it was truly a personal experience that we would not have received if we had chosen a hostel or hotel, not to mention the historical beauty of the home and the central location. Thanks again! And we really miss hanging out with the ever-friendly Nelson :)

  • Great hosts! Nice dog. Thanks for picking us up at the bus and dropping us off Again! House was beautiful, old. For the light sleepers under us good to know. One tip would be putting water cooker + tea in room as kitchen was not for guests to use. Regards from Glengarif. Nathalie

    Response from Jerry:

    Sorry Nathalie about not been able to cook your own meals in Kitchen but this is a B&B rather than a hostel and it would be totally impractical as well as dangerous to install a cooker in the bedroom

  • Technically, we have not yet stayed at Jerry's place, but I know it will be a wonderful experience. Our recent holiday plans were thwarted by severe weather, and Jerry so kindly offered to let us rebook at no charge even though the cancellation occurred on the day we were due to arrive. Five starts for human kindness. We are looking forward to finally making our trip to Jerry's house soon!

    Response from Jerry:

    Champagne on ice . The same thing happened to me in France last year (Airline strike ) and the lovely host (Laurie) contacted me a year later asking me when we were going to come and stay ... That and this is the difference between hotels and Airbnb.. look forward to meeting you . Jerry & Ger

  • Had a fantastically comfortable stay in a beautiful home. The breakfast was delicious (and enormous) and our hosts were hospitable and helpful. Five stars!

  • Ger and Jerry were wonderful hosts to stay with. The highlight was their wonderful breakfast provided every morning - really fantastic and delicious. The room was spacious, warm and very comfortable. The house is within 15 minutes walking distance of the City Centre. Nelson the dog is adorable!

  • Très agréable séjour passer dans cet appartement, fin octobre.
    Hyper bien situé, porte d'entrée juste en face la sortie du RER local qui vous amène en 10 mnt de l'aéroport, ou 30mnt à Malaga . Très calme, une chambre mais deux salle d'eau. Un des deux matelas est peut être à changer.

  • Jerry & Ger (and Nelson) were wonderful to stay with. Their home is beautiful and spacious and our room had it's own very nice bathroom with a tub (not too common on our trip through Ireland). J &G were very engaged hosts and we really enjoyed their company. Their breakfasts were amazing... one day we had fresh scones (still warm!) from a bakery a few doors down. Staying with them was a great experience, highly recommended.

  • Jerry & Jer are a great couple to stay with in Cork. They made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home. The bedroom is a good size & very comfortable. Our breakfast was excellent. We would highly recommend for a stay in Cork
