The space

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.

Guest access

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.

The neighborhood

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.

We loved Edel's place! It's the perfect getaway in a gorgeous location on the ocean. You can tell that Edel and her family put a lot of time and effort into making this the perfect cottage for themselves, and for lucky visitors like us. No phone, no TV, no internet. Just that stunning view to continually amaze you, regardless the weather. And unlike many properties listed on Airbnb, you know you are privileged to stay in someone's personal place for a while. Everything was super clean and well organized, and worked as expected. All went smoothly, but Edel was also available and responsive throughout our stay. She left very detailed information on how everything worked, and this certainly made things easy for us. Although we loved this place, guests should know that it's a bit off the beaten path, and requires a car and some Irish driving skill to reach. Nevertheless, it's perfectly situated to explore the West Cork countryside, with beautiful towns like Kinsale and Clonakilty a stone's throw away. I certainly hope to return one day. Thanks Edel.

Fantastic house, amazing host, very organised with great comms back and forth. Pub across the road is awesome and beach on your front door what more could you want. Extremely peaceful week and the sky was chock full of stars. Thanks for everything Edel.

This was our second time at this lovely place at the Atlantic. We felt like returning home. Everything was as perfectly organised as during our first stay. Communication with Edel was easy, and we got all the information we might have needed. Hope we'll come again third time.

Edel had thought of everything - she was in touch at regular intervals leading up to the stay, provided excellent info' in relation to directions, access and dealing with appliances etc. The setting is wonderful - one of the best views in the world without a doubt. The house is charming, it's a beautiful light filled property, beautifully furnished and decorated, looking right over the Atlantic Ocean and the garden is a lovely mixture of wild and cultivated. Not having a TV is a great bonus and Edel has some excellent board games, jigsaws etc. for all ages. The kitchen is well stocked for big family meals and everything was in good working order. Edel had left lots of information about what was happening locally, where to eat, visit, shop etc. which was very useful. I had a lovely relaxing time. Thanks Edel!

Everything good about this fabulous property has already been said. It was clean, comfortable & in a marvelous position overlooking the bay. A car is a must as there are no shops within walking distance, however, charming Ballinspittle, Timoleague & Courtmacsherry are a short drive away & you're only 20 minutes away from glorious Kinsale. The Pink Elephant Restaurant, which is directly across the road is perfect for those nights when you want to leave the car at home. Suffice to say we loved our time in West Cork so much that we have already booked this property again for 2017!!!
