The neighborhood


Dunworley is on the breathtaking Seven Heads Peninsula, part of the Wild Atlantic Way route.

A sandy tidal beach lies just a moment's walk away and offers a tranquil swim, a rugged coastline climb, or just a wander around the beach.

The walks along our headland are absolutely incredible, with a 17th century watch tower, a secluded cove and a salt tower among it's delights.

The surrounding countryside is dotted with small colourful towns and villages, which provide a range of food from irish pub grub to high restaurant quality standard.

Clonakilty, the home of Michael Collins, is just seven miles from the cottage and has a wide variety of delicious restaurants and, in particular, a traditional Irish pub where many renowned bands play, De Barra's.
There is also the spoiling Incheydoney Spa with an indoor sea water pool and a thalassic health spa.

Bandon and Lisselan offer great golf clubs - Bandon (18 holes) and Lisselan (six holes).

Bandon also offers fishing on the sea trout and salmon river, day passes are available from Michael O'Reagan.
Kilcoleman fishery is well worth the day. Contact David Lamb.

You can follow the Wild Atlantic Way from Dunworley to Kinsale which well worth the trip and a stunning drive.

Be it during the day for some sightseeing (from 17th century forts to rugged walks along the headlands Kinsale is a haven for tourists) or by night for an uplifting irish experience, lively pubs host some excellent bands.

Courtmacsherry is another beautiful harbour town, just 5 miles away and has sailing, riding, sea fishing, and windsurfing facilities along the beautiful strand.

Barryroe Co-Op is the nearest shop, 2.5 miles away.

And the nearest pub is 1.5 miles away.

Gilly's place is everything you would expect of a quaint coastal cottage. It's very cozy and clean, and just a short walk down to the beach. Upon arriving Gilly gave us fresh radishes from her garden. We had a perfect stay. I could not recommend this place highly enough!

This is a stunning location just a short walk from the sea. Crashing waves on large rocks and pastoral beauty everywhere else you look! It is very quiet except for an occasional dog barking or cow mooing. Cottage was charming and comfortable with delightful feather pillows and comfy duvets. Gilly fixed an exquisite dinner for us, accommodating my very difficult diet, that was beautiful as well as tasty! This is a good place to rest and reflect. It won't soon be forgotten!

The cottage was a perfect rural getaway in the quiet Irish countryside, a five minute walk from a beautiful stony beach. The amenities were modest but sufficient.

Gilly's Dunworley cottage was the perfect retreat for my family's holiday. The cottage is located in the rolling hills of west cork Ireland. Steps down the road is the most beautiful beach, Dunworley. Also not far, is the beach town Kinsale. We took a lovely scenic drive there, enjoyed the shops and cafes. Our stay was quiet, relaxing and exactly what we expected Ireland to be. I highly recommend having Gilly prepare breakfast and dinner for you. The meals were fresh and exceptional. Overall our stay was exactly what we were looking for while visiting Ireland. We hope to be back soon!
