Definately recommend people to stay at this place! Absolutely amazing value and a top experience! Des and Heidi are fantastic hosts, lovely people who made sure we had all that we needed. The place is clean, warm and very inviting. We used the outdoor hot tub which was really the highlight for us as it was such a nice way to relax outdoors even on a rainy afternoon. Skibereen is only a couple minutes drive away and we had nice food there and plenty to keep us entertained! This has been our favourite air bnb location and we will be back! Thanks :)

We have been living in West Cork close to the bustling town of Skibbereen, for the best part of 30 years.
We love sharing our experience of living in such a beautiful part of Ireland.
Des is a musician who plays anything from folk, irish traditional and some more modern music. We both love the outdoors and enjoy walking and cayaking.
We are happy to point our guests to all the local beauty spots and can advise you on where to walk, eat or hear some music in one of the many local pubs.
