This Victorian cottage is a unique piece of history in a beautiful and relaxed seaside village. Come and relax by the fireside, in the cosiest of settings, that will be sure to help your pulse drop and set your mind at ease. The cottage dates back over 300 years and has all the character and charm to prove it.
Stunning coastal walks are equally as impressive in the lonely Autumn and Winter gales as they are in the busy Summer months.

Can't say enough great things about this place! We stayed in Mark's cottage for three nights, and they were by far our favorite part of the trip. As others have pointed out, the cottage is a short 2 minute walk to a beautiful and quiet beach, a pub, and restaurant that overlooks the ocean. Although we opted to dine out at the restaurant and pub for our dinners (to take a break from our usual daily cooking), Mark's garden would provide ample produce for those looking to cook at home. Myrtleville provided a great home base for day trips to Carrauntoohil (for hiking), Killarney, and Blarney Castle, while allowing us to relax and unwind in the evenings. We would absolutely recommended (and have!) this location to those traveling to Ireland. Thanks Mark!

When booking I loved to look of the quirky cottage but on arrival was shocked as the cottage was filthy, quirky does not have to mean dirty the cottage is old but I live in a very old oast house however again old doesn't have to mean dirty. The windows need cleaning the bushes and brambles need cutting g back and itneed a good airing as these is a dirty, old cooking musty smell. Such a shame as it could be lovely if only it was kept better.

Response from Mark:
Hi Kirsty, I'm a little shocked at your review. You mentioned the filth of the floors in your feedback, the floors get hoovered and mopped before guests arrive. It is not filthy. You did arrive 2 days after your husband and child so perhaps it wasn't spotless upon your arrival. It is impossible to get that floor to shine as it has taken the battering of over 300 years of occupation. However I will keep your comments in mind and get those windows cleaned a little more often. As for the airing and odours, it has never been an issue. You also mentioned the price in your private feedback. This is important as you booked for four and only three of you stayed. I found this out just before you arrived and I altered the reservation and sent you the updated cost to accept. You didn't accept it and so paid 25% more than was necessary as a result. This is something that I only noticed today after reading your feedback. The bushes and brambles are important forage for my bees, the honey I left for you came from the garden. I am sorry that the cottage didn't measure up to your expectations Kirsty. All the best, Mark

We were so looking forward to our stay at Mark's house, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The huge, spacious house, plentiful garden and nearby places to visit were fantastic. Mark was generous and accommodating, and had even baked us fresh bread on arrival, which was a luxury! Good location to explore nearby coastal towns including Kinsale, as well as Cork. Thanks!

Very unique experience. Mark and Tom were awesome host, loved hearing about their daily adventures. Surfing, diving, fishing etc. We traveled with a 3 year old and an infant, stayed 2 weeks and it was an enjoyable experience. This town was exactly what we were looking for, non touristy, peaceful, good people, good food and a beautiful beach. Marks place gave us well needed family time, we felt safe and the house was cozy. Thanks again for opening up your home to us.

Staying at Mark's home was a blast! His beautiful cottage is full of lovely interior details and vintage treasures. When we arrived, he awaited us with freshly baked scones, delicious bread and eggs by his own little chicken. We loved spending time at the cottage, the evenings were especially great, spending them at the fireplace in the living room. During the day we strolled to the beach or ate at Bunnyconnellan's nearby. It was a wonderful stay!

This is a magic place. The farmhouse is old and steeped in charm, and Mark a friendly and generous host who opens his home to you. Fresh flowers, eggs, fruit, and tomatoes from the farm awaited us inside. The place is so mindfully put together ~ from the aesthetics of the rustic furnishing to the way the art is arranged, to the beautiful CD Mark left in the stereo upstairs. It is a total experience to stay here among the wild garden, chickens, and meandering paths that take you to lovely nooks in the garden and grounds where you can sit with your coffee and a journal or book, or just reflect. If you are looking for a hotel-like, impersonal Air BnB experience where you never meet your host and check in with a lock box, this place is not for you. This feels to me what the true spirit of Air BnB should be: staying as a guest in someone's home, but with the privacy of your own space. The pub is a short walk down the hill, and overlooks the sea. Rarely do I return to the same place, but if I find myself in Ireland again, I believe I would seek the refuge of this lovely place again.

I love hosting and travelling with Airbnb:)

These days its more hosting than travelling and its always nice to see my home through the eyes of my guests. They help me to keep things fresh and inspire me to always try new ideas around the home and the garden.
