Comfortable and traditional 150 year old country cottage with Irish stone front.

The space
The house itself is over 150 years old but was purchased 9 years ago and renovated by myself with most items of furniture hand crafted to maintain that authentic country cottage feel. The stone seen at the front of the cottage comes from a family quarry in Valentia Island, Co. Kerry. Most other materials used in renovation the cottage were reclaimed and sourced locally.
The cottage is on a old farm with traditional outhouses and on 1.5 acres with apple and chestnut trees. There is a large chestnut tree with potbelly stove, swing and seating ideal for summertime relaxation and gatherings.

Guest access
*The cottage is located in a very peaceful and tranquil area with a choice of four beaches within two miles.
*Five minutes from main motorway
*7 minutes from Youghal town
*4 mins from Italian restaurant
*4 mins from local village with shop and pubs.
*5 mins from local woods with various walking/biking routes.

Other things to note
The entire house is available but the sleeping arrangements are as follows , one guest bedroom is a king size bed with electric blanket , it’s completely private , while the other room is a mezzanine, which means that it’s not completely private , as you can see from the photos it’s upstairs and looks down on the living space , the ceiling height is low , you can stand up , but obviously one couple will have better sleeping conditions than the others , hope you all have a nice stay

I'm 43 and have traveled and worked in many countries throughout the world. I decided to settle near my home town of Youghal to be near family and friends and to allow me to be involved in local sport i.e. Hurling & Football. I'm Forever interested in travel and meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. I also have a great love and interest in music from many different genres i.e. dance music, folk, rock, trad. I also like to get to as many festivals at home and abroad as possible. I've been vegetation for 25 years and have a great respect for animals, that said I do not push my opinions on others and my home is open to veggies and meat eaters alike. Having traveled myself for so many years I understand the needs of fellow travelers and this why I've decided to open my home to Airbnb. Hope you can tell from my profile and photographs that my home and hosting is intended to be authentic, traditional, rustic, friendly, warming and inviting.
