About our home

Lovingly renovated and extended, this is a beautiful old cottage, with plenty of space, and places to hide! People get lost in our house because of its twists and turns and three staircases, as well as its creative response to cherishing the old part of the house whilst making places to see the stunning views of the sea and surrounding countryside. The old part of the cottage has an 8 ft fireplace and large wood burning stove, the guest bedroom (originally the sleeping loft) & dining room, also with a wood burning stove and piano, plus large dining table, which can seat 8. There is a large kitchen overlooking the sea, with oil-fired stove, and over-kitchen mezzanine. The main bedroom has its own bathroom, and leads into the sunset room, which has its own large deck overlooking the sea. This room also has a double futon which folds into a sofa. There are two other bedrooms on the ground floor, one has a single bed with another that pulls out and pops up, the other has a single bed. We have a large garden, two decks and a patio all with wide views of the sea, Ballycotton Island and its lighthouse.

Where is it?


This is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our cottage is on the coast road on the Knockadoon peninsula in East Cork. We face south into the wide Ballycotton Bay. A path goes down from the cottage to the beach, and there is access to miles of sandy beach close by. We are surrounded by dairy farms, so often have cows close by, and the days are measured by the farmer's calls for milking. We are five miles from Ballymaloe House and Cookery School, which are fabulous, and have award winning food, and cookery courses. We are also twenty minutes from both the maritime town of Youghal, and the market town of Midleton with its wonderful Saturday farmer's market. We are 25 miles from Cork City, which has a wide array of excellent places to eat, theatres, galleries and museums. Cork Airport is just south of the city, and a quick hop of 45 mins to our door.
