The house is located in Cregg West Cork 4 kilometers from Glandore village and harbour. Drumbeg Stone Circle is a short walk away. Local activities include sailing, fishing, walking, kayaking and swimming, In the West Cork area there is deep sea fishing, whale watching and sea cruising.
The village and harbour of Glandore are busy with sail training courses during the day in summertime with local pubs and hotels serving quality locally sourced food. Fresh fish is caught locally and is available in all the restaurants. Union Hall and Rosscarbery are local shopping villages.
The house is ideally located for touring other scenic towns in West Cork such as Baltimore, Schull, Ballydehob and Skibbereen.
Tralong beach and pier is a short walk from the house. The beach is sheltered and quiet at all times.
The house was recently constructed and has internet and electric central heating. There are 3 bedrooms, Kitchen, Living Room, Sunroom and a basement for storage. Wood burners are also fitted in the living room and sunroom. A large landscaped garden with a south facing elevated deck is also available.
You will need your own transport. The house is not suitable for young children.
Just go there and relax! The house is amazing, furnished with so much taste and love for detail. The pictures can't live up to the welcoming feeling you get there. The area is just beautiful, you'll need a car though to get there since it's quite remote. By car you can reach stunning beaches (Warren beach, Long Strand) and beautiful villages (Glandore, Union Hall, Roscarbery) in just 10 to 15 minutes. Just a short walk from the house is Tralong beach and in the other direction Drombeg Stone Circle.
There are so many things you can do in the area, we tried some surfing, walked up Galley Head to see some stunning cliffs but the house is just perfect to relax, take a time out and watch some cows from the terrace!
Paul was a perfect host and gave us lots of information about the area and things to do.
Bottom line stunning house, great host!
A gorgeous, obviously much-loved house in the beautiful West Cork countryside - spacious, urbane, welcoming. What really sets it apart is that it is an architectural and esthetic delight - modern, clean lines, natural materials, huge windows, spacious deck, unexpected design details, high quality finishings throughout. An architectural and esthetic delight (what better vacation home to stay in than one designed and built by an architect for his own use?). Space creates mood, and we found the house to be deeply relaxing, even on a rainy day doing nothing. Drumbeg stone circle is a 15-minute walk away, otherwise not much around except for beautiful countryside. Groceries, restaurant etc available a short (10 minute) drive away. Paul and Joan were very welcoming and gracious. Would happily stay again.
Paul & Joan have a really beautiful house in possibly one of the most beautiful parts of West Cork. The weather while we were there was not very good so we were fortunate the house is so spacious and comfortable.
We will definately be back.
Siamo una famiglia Italiana con 2 figli, abbiamo affittato la casa per una settimana in agosto. La casa è articolata su due piani con un ottima soluzione architettonica, è confortevole, spaziosa, luminosa , dotata di belle vetrate da cui si ammira il panorama verde delle colline circostanti (nelle belle giornate è visibile l'oceano) è arredata con gusto, all'esterno una bella terrazza ed un giardino. Posto ideale per una vacanza tranquilla o dedicata agli sport acquatici (vela, canoa ecc.) che si possono praticare nella baia Glandore o nelle baie delle località vicine dove l'acqua è mai agitata. Indispensabile la muta. I padroni di casa sono gentilissimi.
