Interaction with Guests
We interact s much or as little as guests would like.
We keep to ourselves, but are also available to show you the lovely walks up the headland, bring you around the organically minded garden etc if you're interested!
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.
You need a car in Ireland!

We do not accept pets because some guests may be allergic.
The cottage is suitable for 3 people only,we ask that our guests respect that and do not have parties.
We had a lovely, relaxing stay in the Coach House. We were greeted with a fire and some eggs from the farm. The bed was really comfortable. It would be hard to find a better place to unwind for the weekend !
A great welcome - eggs and salad provided. Fire was lit for our arrival. This cottage is a little haven from the world with an interesting Eastern influence. Gilly was close by if needed but left us to our own devices.
We had a fantastic 3 day weekend at Gilly's beautiful cottage in Dunworley. The cottage itself is very quaint and cosy, with a very comfortable double bed upstairs and a warm coal fire to sit by in the evenings (putting the electric blanket on for us was a nice touch on a windy night..!). The kitchen was well set up and Gilly very kindly gave us some fresh eggs and salad straight from her garden when we were cooking some of the local fish.
Cycling along the coastline to Clonakilty was a great way to spend the day but the local beaches were ideal for a quiet walk too. It's a beautiful area and I would highly recommend staying here. I will certainly be recommending Gilly's cottage to my friends!
We had a wonderful weekend at the cottage. The setting was beautiful and Gilly was a great host. Would definitely recommend it!
We had a wonderful time at Gilly’s coach house. It’s in a perfect location right next to a lovely beach. Gilly had the fire lighting for our arrival and lovely freshly-picked garden salad and a bowl of dirty-shelled hens eggs left out for us too. The house is really cosy and beautifully restored – we really recommend this place for a perfect getaway by the sea.
Very enjoyable stay and a picturesque location. The cottage is a bit of utter tranquillity in the world and you couldn't ask for better scenery. The eggs and leaves were very welcome and utterly delicious. Easy to find if you put dunworly beach into Google maps but you may find yourself being taken down the bothairíns! Perfect for a birthday weekend as in our case or a romantic trip away.
