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.

Such a peaceful stay in a beautiful setting. We took long walks every morning and almost never saw another soul. But we were still a short drive to the town, which had everything we needed.

Wonderful place to stay - the scenery is stunning in the area and a very short walk down to the rocks for a picnic and exploring. Wish we could have spent more time. Gilly was very accommodating with our date falling during a time where no other nights were possible. Sadly, we never got to meet her or try her private dining offerings as she was out of town when we were there, but the restaurant that she recommended serving her produce was very close and incredibly charming - one of the very best restaurants we went to during our week in Ireland. We did not make a reservation due to road tripping uncertainties coming from the Ring of Kerry that day, and I definitely recommend doing so. Monk's Lane was very busy and fully booked for the night, but the host was able to squeeze us into their 2 bar seats. Overall the accommodations were very lovely, and we very much appreciated the little coal burning stove and fresh eggs, and attention to recycling and compost. Thank you!

Just home from a very relaxing stay in the coach house. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, stunning views, lovely garden, well stocked kitchen, fast Wi-Fi and comfortable bed!

The coach house was charming and perfect for the 3 of us. Very easy and short walk to a spectacular beach. It was wonderful to sit outside in such tranquil surroundings, sipping an early morning coffee and hearing nothing but an occasional cow or sheep from across a field. We obviously enjoyed our stay and recommend it to others.

Absolutely perfect spot - cozy, stunning, and easy all at the same time. We stayed in the cottage for two nights. It is tucked into a charming spot on a hill near a cliff-lined beach, surrounded by small farms. Off the beaten path, and yet easy to get to (about 3 hours from Dublin). Gilly cooked dinner one night and breakfast for us - she is an amazing cook and it is a treat to dine without leaving your cottage (definitely recommended). It was also easy to get to nice restaurants in neighboring villages (Gilly and Richard's recommendations are great). The cottage is cozy and clean, check in was easy (they met us in the driveway), Gilly and Richard are both friendly and responsive but also give you plenty of space. Gilly graciously also showed us the way to a walk along the cliffs that was absolutely spectacular. We couldn't have asked for more!
