About our home

The house was originally an old coastguard residence. Its over 100 years old and still has the character of its original form but has been fully modernized as recently as 2012.

It has a magical garden broken into a number of different little areas with private access to the pebble beach below. In the garden are apple trees, a 60 year old fig tree, wild alpine strawberries, an amazing selection of roses and the greenhouse even boasts a grape vine that bears fruit in the late summer.

There's an outhouse out back with a little workstation - fully equipped with lobster pots, crab pots, fishing lines, wetsuits and everything else you'll need for some nautical adventures.

It is situated in the heart of the beautiful little village of Glandore in west cork - a 50 minute drive from Cork airport.

Across the road is one of the most special little pubs of west cork - Caseys bar - been in the same family for over two hundred years and seems to retain the lovely frequency of many a good night had.

The local surrounds boast some of Ireland's best scenery, famous eateries and much much more.
