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.

Guard tower teeters on the headland flanked either side by the rough Atlantic. 15 minute walk from coach house
Gilly provided such detailed directions that guided us from Cork to the cottage. She was quick with communication and extemely helpful upon arrival. She showed us how to light the fire, where the compost bin is located, towels, etc... The cottage has beautiful surroundings to explore, we just wished we would have had more time!
Starting with the warmest of welcomes, my son & I couldn't have wished for a better holiday. The coach house is adorable with such wonderful vistas, friendly dogs and cows too....... Now, Dunworley Bay was something else. Thanks to Gilly, we had an amazing walk to the tower & along the cliffs, together with the other guests ....... and the dogs came too... whoops... Nearly forgot the delicious dinner on our first night. We so wished we could have stayed longer......but will be back.
Our stay was perfect and relaxing. The little house is a great spot to enjoy the sea and quiet life away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Gilly was a great hostess and we wish we could have stayed longer.
Imagine the most perfect Irish vacation cottage in the most ideal location and then imagine some more! Gilly's sweet getaway is delightful in every way, from the enthusiastic welcome, to the friendly dogs and nearby cows, the doves cooing in the dovecote and the easy walk to the superb beach. Just getting there is an adventure in itself! We enjoyed the local towns nearby and it was a great base from which to explore West Cork's many great attractions. The cottage is warm and well appointed and the bed is very comfortable. We were able to have our morning coffee in our pj's; it is quite private. We recommend this cottage with enthusiasm!
Fantastic escape, off the beaten track! Gilly is a great host, friendly, with good communication & amazing cooking. The Coach house is gorgeous, comfortable & functional, with everything you need, in a lovely location. Our pre-ordered meal awaiting us our first night was simply delectable! Highly recommend a stay!!
Gilly and Richard were welcoming and the cottage was cozy especially with the wood stove. Lots of friendly pets around and close walk to the coastline.
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 !
