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.

This place is beyond beautiful, the scenery, location, and cottage all beautiful. West Cork is a gem, and Dunworley shines.
Our hosts were full of great ideas for us as well as wonderful breakfast. Our cottage and landscape were even better than described.
We have a lovely time staying here in August. The cottage is absolutely beautiful. Gilly has provided everything one could possibly need in the cottage. it is a few yards from the beach. The views are fabulous. You do need a car as the nearest shop or pub is in Butlerstown. Overall, the peace and tranquillity was heaven!
Windswept coastline, absolutely beautiful. The two houses we rented were clean, neat and ruggedly fabulous. The coast is right down the narrow lane that leads to the house. We had breakfasts from our host 4 days during our stay - all delicious and all 6 of us got to enjoy visiting while the whole meal was brought to us. Gilley and Richard are kind and accomodating - We had never driven on the left before nor gone into the outlying countryside of Ireland. It is a challenge to find the cottage but we did it and got better and better as the days went by. Our Irish friends were impressed with the natural feel of the house and the thoughtful restoration.
Had an absolutely wonderful experience at Dunworley! To sum it up: a gorgeous, unique cottage with everything we could have needed, friendly and helpful hosts who went out of their way to make us feel welcome, and peaceful, soothing scenery and countryside all around us. And Gilly's food was divine! We'll be back!
We had the absolute best time staying in the Gilly's coach house! Gilly and Richard were the perfect hosts. They gave us plenty of space but were also completely available to answer questions, make suggestions, and share their love for magic of West Cork. Gilly's cooking is phenomenal!!! All of her ingredients are straight from her garden or a neighbor's farm. My biggest regret from the trip was not asking her to cook for us more. The coach house itself is both cozy and spacious. The coal burning stove keeps it nice and warm and the lofted bed was very comfortable. The surrounding landscapes are breathtaking. In short, we found exactly what we were looking for at Dunworly cottage and returned to the states relaxed, happy, and very well-fed.
Gilly and Richard were great hosts! They were very welcoming, gave us suggestions for nice walks near the coach house, and were always available if we needed anything. They also made us an excellent Irish breakfast our first morning at the coach house.
The house itself was very clean and we enjoyed reading and relaxing out on the front patio and on the big couch in the main room. It's a quick walk to Dunworley beach, which provides excellent views of the ocean and coastline. And nearby Clonakilty is an awesome town. Great food, relaxing cafes, and plenty of history.
I'd highly recommend staying here!
