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.
Large living room with stove
Docking station for music, TV, internet

Back kitchen for indoor sleeping dog
There is very little public transport. A bus goes through the town to Cork City and to West Cork a few times a day.
Check out time is flexible depending on incoming (website hidden) smoking in the house but you can smoke in the garden.
I had such a wonderful visit! I was looking for somewhere quiet and comfortable near the coast to sit back and relax for a few days, and this was absolutely perfect! A gorgeous home with a beautiful property and view, and only about 1km walk to town. The room was spacious with a comfortable bed and ensuite. Helen was a wonderful host, with breakfast every morning, and she kept me supplied with all the coffee and biscuits I needed to survive some work I was doing. She offered many excellent suggestions for hikes, places to eat, pubs, music, etc. She was an excellent, genuine host and had so much to offer. There was absolutely nothing missing from my stay! Next time I need a home-away-from-home vacation, I will definitely try to return here!
Clean and comfortable room, a very nice and quiet place 1 km from the centre of Clonakilty. Helen gave us a lot of very good trip and restaurant advices and - most important - a warm sense of humour every day. Thanks a lot, Helen!
thank you very much for the stay in your beautiful home. It was a pleasure to have a host like you. Everything was perfect! You have a really cosy place and we enjoyed it so much. All the information you gave us was very helpful to explore Clonakilty and the sourrounding area. And the restaurants in your town are the best ones we had in Ireland!
Thanks from the Mende family, Bremen, Germany
Helen was a great host and made us feel and at home with her. Helen was very friendly and a pleasure to be around. Her place is close to town either by a brief walk or short cab ride and is great for exploring Clonakilty.
Very welcoming and relaxed place. Great location, walking easily to Clonakilty and the place is really clean, tidy and a very nice breakfast

Wir haben uns bei Helen sehr wohl gefühlt. Ihre herzliche Art reißt mit und für die erste Aibnb hat uns dass sehr geholfen. Gemütlicher und gepflegter Haushalt. Helen hat unser schlechtes Englisch charmant überspielt ;-). Immer wieder gerne.
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 !
