About This Listing
Large cottage style house with sea view, rolling hills, beautiful garden on a quiet country road. One double guest room with king size bed to let with ensuite bathroom. It is just a 1km walk to Clonakilty town, which has restaurants and lively pubs and is well known for live music sessions. The house is 1 km from the pretty fishing village of Ring which hosts two small pubs. Deasy's award-winning seafood restaurant is a fifteen minute walk down the hill or 3 minutes on my bike! Clonakilty is a five minute drive from beautiful Inchadonney beach, which has a surfing school. Check out the many coves that surround the area. Horse trekking is available locally. It takes about 50 minutes to the house from Cork airport by car, perfect for a chilled break. Happy travelling to you all.

Helen made a big effort to make me feel welcome. She was very attentive and helpful. Really enjoyed my stay there. And the bed is probably the mist comfortable I have ever slept in!
Forget Rick Steves. Get your recommendations from Helen. She was a charming and gracious host and made us feel welcome and comfortable in her home. She had numbers for all the local restaurants and tourist sites and made sure they were open and could accommodate us. The home is up a steep narrow lane, so if you drive, be sure you are up for it. However, the views are worth it.
I couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience in Clonakilty. Helen is a warm welcoming host, who greeted me with tea on arrival! The ensuite room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the shower powerful. Helen left me to discover the area myself but did give valuable tips on restaurants and must see sights in the area. If I am ever in Clonakilty again I will gladly stay here.
This is a beautiful cottage just outside Clonakilty, very comfortable, clean and cosy.
Helen is was very welcoming and helpful, made us tea and biscuits when we arrived, left lots of nice breakfast things for us and was available to point us in the right direction if we needed.
This is a really lovely AirBnB experience, highly recommended.
Helen is a gifted hostess. She is very welcoming, immediately puts her guests at ease, and is very helpful and thoughtful in suggesting ways for her guests to enjoy their time in Clonakilty.
There is lots to see and do there. The landscape is wonderful, particularly the beach and the bay which is teeming with bird life .
The views are truly spectacular .
We will certainly return as soon as time permits and Helen' s house is so comfortable and homely there is no need to consider any other.
Helens cottage is really nice, spacious, quiet. Out of Clonakilty. The room was very spacious and comfortable. I slept wonderful. From here you can make nice trips along the coast, seeing different beaches and relax.
I can highly recommended to choose Helen’s house for a stay in this area.
I felt very comfortable.
All the best Helen
About the Host, Helen
I dabble in photography, paint when I have time and travel as much as I can. My place would ideal for anyone travelling on their own or a couple, looking for a nice home away from home. My house has a large garden, you get a glimpse of the sea from a distance. It's near Clonakilty town but tucked away on a hillside.
Happiness is not a destination it is a way of life !
