About this listing
House in West Cork directly on the Wild Atlantic Way, with spectacular views of the ocean, 2-min walk from a sandy beach, the bay is ideal for water sports, 15-min drive to further beaches and picturesque town of Kinsale, 40 min from Cork airport
The unique location of the house 50 metres from the sea provides perfect peace and breathtaking views. The main living area and kitchen overlook the Atlantic.
Guests have access to the whole house.
Interaction with Guests
We do not live in the house, but are always contactable via telephone and email, preferably by email.
Our housekeeper Catherine will meet you and hand over the keys to you, and show you the house and how things work.
Fantastic walks on the beaches in the area, you can start right from the end of our garden. The path leads you along the coast to the long and sandy beach at Harbour View.
The area is also wonderful for bird-watching, and dolphin and porpoise-watching at certain times of the year.
You can really get away from it all in our peaceful house, yet you are only a short drive away from the pretty towns of Kinsale and Clonakilty.
We are lucky enough to have The Pink Elephant Bar and Restaurant directly opposite our drive, so you can enjoy excellent cuisine without having to drive anywhere.

The perfect retreat for our family. House was well equipped for all our needs and the location is just superb with so many options of places to see and things to do all within a 20/30 min drive. Stunning views from the house. Excellent communications from the host from initial inquiry through to departure. We will be back!
As should now be obvious from the previous comments Edel's house is absolutely wonderful with everything anyone needs, family or not, with amazing views and great tips from Edel for walks and activities in the area. Very highly recommended. Need one say more! We will hopefully come back soon.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days in Edel's beautiful home by the sea. The weather wasn't great the first couple of days but once the sun shone the view was just spectacular. We travelled with our 4 and 7 year olds who loved the kids room with bunk beds and toys. The kitchen was really well equipped for cooking and there's a lovely restaurant/bar (The Pink Elephant) at the end of the drive if you want to eat out. The house is so homely and warm, tastefully decorated and beautifully positioned - we will definitely return. Edel was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish - thanks Edel!
Stunning views, a beautifully refurbished house, great beaches nearby, a pub/restaurant across the road and a friendly and flexible host, what more could you want? Thanks again Edel for a great holiday, we'd love to come back!
Maison idéalement située, face à la mer, juste à descendre au fond du jardin, et vous êtes comme au paradis "marin" !!! Vraiment superbe, tout a été à la hauteur de nos attentes. La maison est très cosy, un vrai nid pour amoureux du calme et du cocooning, très bel agencement des pièces, une vue du salon et de la chambre principale à couper le souffle ! Dîner en amoureux sur la table du salon, en regardant la mer, vraiment superbe, inoubliables moments de doux bonheur !!! L'environnement de la maison est superbe, tout est fait pour que le séjour soit génial ! MERCI Edel !!!
Notre séjour dans la maison d'Edel était très agréable. La maison est spacieuse, propre, calme et agréable avec une vue magnifique. Les photos de l'annonce sont en dessous de la réalité, car quand on arrive c'est l'émerveillement et de plus, tout est prévu dans la maison pour que l'on se sente comme chez soi. Notre seul regret est de n'avoir pas pu rencontrer notre hôte car nos échanges de mail étaient très sympathiques, mais nous avions prévu beaucoup de visites et nous ne voulions pas la déranger. Venant de France nous regrettons déjà de ne pas pouvoir y retourner pour d'autres vacances.
We had a fantastic stay at Edel's cottage. Everything went really smoothly, she even organised a travel cot the baby. The views out the to ocean are stunning and we loved the feel of the house, very relaxing. We could walk down to the end of the garden and down onto the rocks which was nice, and the nearest beach is a 2min walk away. All in all it was really a great little holiday, would do it all again !!!!
