I restored this cottage from 2003 with love and every ounce of my soul has been poured into bringing it to a cosy retreat perfect for two or a small family or 4 close friends. Take time to Hike, Bike, Read, Write, Draw, Think, Play, Live &make Love. There is a large extension which is another house which can be rented separately or together if you have a larger group. Thick stone walls means there is excellent sound proofing. You would not notice the guests next door unless you meet them.

Sheila was a great host, very friendly and helpful. She met us at the property to show us around and gave us tips on places to visit and where to go to get groceries and logs etc. A very cosy cottage that had everything we needed for a great stay. If your after a home from home in a really peaceful location, this is the place for you.

We had a lovely stay in Sheila's cottage. An idyllic setting surrounded by vivid green farmland, mountains in back and a stunning view of the water from the front. We arrived in a veil of mist, but for the remainder of our stay, we had gorgeous weather. It was perfect for the 4 of us, including two children. I loved the skylights in the upstairs bedrooms and bathroom. It was truly peaceful after our busy drive down from Dublin, and good place to set out to see Bantry, the surrounding Cork countryside and even to Kerry. I recommend going to the adorable Heron Gallery and Cafe, down the road from the cottage in Ahakista.

Wonderful peaceful house in a beatiful location. In the middle of nowhere but perfect Wifi so we stayed connected (very important for a 15 year old). Pubs at a walking distance and nothing but friendly people around!

We enjoyed our stay at Sheila very much! The cottage is very cosy, rustic, full of history - if you don't mind a bit of dust you are in for a perfect stay. The surroundings are marvellous (Sheila recommended a loop walk to us - the view is breathtaking). Also, the location of the cottage on the peninsula makes it the perfect base for little trips to Sheep's Head, Killarney or Mizen Head. Thanks Sheila, we felt at home :)

Fantastic Location for walks and peace of mind! You cans actually start several walks directly from Sheila's house. The 2Km "seefin Loop Walk" is highly recommended. Not the easiest one, but what a beauty!

Hello! I'm a new mum and a teacher of Technical Drawing and Wood work. I've worked hard and put every penny I've earned towards the renovation of my cottage and the building of the Wild Atlantic Way View, It has taken ten years of every weekend and summer holiday of working/diy on my property, It has been a labour of love and I am very proud of it.

I like sea swimming, hill walking, dancing all sorts including Irish Set dancing, Salsa and Swing dancing.

I've had all kinds of house guests over the years: WWOOFers, Helpex-ers, Family and lots Friends. Now I'll add the airbnb guests to the long list of happy visitors. I lead guided hillwalks on the Sheeps Head Way.

When I was 22 I backpacked around the world, for about 2 years. Then I returned to Ireland a began my studies as a Woodwork and Technical drawing teacher.

I speak English, Irish, French,
