Baltimore is a magical village with lots of walks, great trips out to the islands, great food and great entertainment. The village is a sailing village so has a lot of holiday makers and is safe and secure for teenagers. The village is very pretty with breath taking views, when you drive through you start to come down and to just relax into the villages easy ways.
There is public transport to villages, to Cork and to Dublin. There is parking outside the house and it is possible to get a taxi from the airport to the house which would take just over an hour.

We enjoyed one if the best family holidays ever in Maria's home. Maria couldn't have been nicer to deal with and was super friendly. Her home was spotless and had absolutely everything we needed. Apart from being one of the most beautiful homes in Baltimore it is also situated in easily the best location In Baltimore. Absolutely perfect for family with kids with the cove right outside the door. Can't wait to visit again.
We loved this cottage and Baltimore so much, we stayed 3 months! We cannot recommend it highly enough. First, I will start with the cottage itself! Perfectly situated right on the cove, with direct access to the sea, and easy walk to the pubs and shops in Baltimore itself. The cottage has 4 bedrooms, although we only used 2, very comfortable beds and big rooms. As we were there in winter, we spent most of our time in the very warm and cozy snug, which is attached to the dining/kitchen area. The house is decorated with a nautical theme reflecting much of the history of the area. Great views from many rooms in the house.
Now on to Baltimore itself. We loved the village. The people were so friendly and welcoming, and we got to know a number of the characters during our stay. There are 5 bars in the area, 3 in Baltimore itself and 2 on the outskirts. We would go to Caseys every Saturday night for the craic, really miss that! Wonderful place, wonderful cottage, loved every moment there, we will definitely be back!
This house exceeded our expectations in every way, and our host was very accommodating and responsive to emails and questions. We had six adults, and the house was roomy enough for everyone to be comfortable. What sets this house apart is its location. Baltimore is a beautiful village on the water, and from this house we walked up to the Beacon, we walked to the ferry and went over to Clear Island for the day, we walked to Casey's of Baltimore and had dinner, we walked to Jacob's bar, we took a bus to Skibbereen, and we took day trips to the Ring of Kerry. It was a very comfortable house, inside and out. Everything we needed was there. We loved sitting outside at the large table and looking at the beautiful view. We would go back in a heartbeat and would recommend this house and host to anyone!
"Charming" is exactly what Maria's home is, and then some. I spent a week by myself while working at a local fish smokery, to be joined by my wife, three kids and parents for another 3 days. The house was perfect, in an incredible location directly across from the harbor. Well stocked kitchen for cooking at home, bright window light.....just an overall great experience. Maria was very easy to work with and was always an email/call away. I would highly recommend. Oh, and eat at Glebe's cafe' up the street, great people and great food!
