Where is it?


Located 3 minutes from the main Cork/Killarney road the house is a ideal base for touring and exploring Ireland. Cork city is a 45 minute drive and so is Killarney. The house overlooks the Lee valley with Macroom town (3km) to the left and all the way into Co. Kerry to the right. Macroom is a lovely market town with good choice of shops and restaurants and of-course a good pint! to share with nice local people. Macroom has an indoor swimming pool and cinema/theatre. On some afternoons when you walk through the garden you will hear the sound of the fiddle drifting in from our neighbour who is one of the best Irish musicians, although he'll never say so. Or you can take a walk to the river where in summer my kids swim and hang out. The Kerryway hiking trail starts within 10 minutes drive from the house and trout/ salmon fishing can be done in a 10 minute walk. The scenic routes of West Cork / Kerry are within easy reach by car.Cork city can be reached by car or bus and is a 30 minute drive. Cork is a lovely bustling city with lots of sightseeing, shopping and culture.The house offers an easy family atmosphere where a family with young or older children can relax and enjoy country living within easy access to the local restaurants/pubs and shops.
