Utterly peaceful location hidden within cul-de-sac and private street, surrounded only by farms. Both hill walking and the seaside are right on your doorstep. Beautiful towns such as Schull, Skibereen and Bantry are all within driving distance. The most beautiful beach in West Cork (Barley Cove) is not far away with the small dreamy bays also in close proximity. The rocky coast can be reached by foot where dolphins, sea otters, seals, Northern gannets, whales and basking sharks can be sighted.
Skyfall Cottage is situated next to the lodge, which is occupied by the proprietors. Living/ dining room with satellite TV (Irish and German programmes), big kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, fridge with freezer, dishwasher, food processor, toaster, kitchen scales, cutlery and all necessary kitchen utensils.

NEWLY RENOVATED: Kitchen, bathroom, 2 bedrooms, hall and dining/living room. Parking directly in front of the house. Stoney beaches and coast, bay and the castle are all well within walking distance!
Our diet here is completely gluten-free and we offer our guests gluten-free products on request. These include bread, rolls, cake, flour etc. directly from us. Fruit, vegetables, eggs etc. from the farm are entirely organic. We catch all of our fish ourselves and our autumn apples are from our very own harvest. We offer guiding to those who would like to go fishing as well as equipment (in each a case there will be a charge).
You will be living in the countryside, close to bays and the sea in complete tranquillity.
Country life: seeking breakfast eggs yourself, spending time with animals and listening to the poultry ...
Anglers: valuable tips and equipment for fellow sufferers and favorable guiding from the landlord (rock fishing, sea fishing of boat and coast, also fly and spin fishing for brown trout, rainbows, sea trout and salmon) from the landlord.
Golfers: do not come too short, e.g. Bantry Golf Club
We are more than happy to give any advice or information to our guests at any time. Fishing (salt- and freshwater), golfing, sailing, paddling, surfing, hill walking or simply relaxing in the garden are just some of the activities you can enjoy here. Especially fishing for salmon and sea trout in 5 productive rivers is worth mentioning: as we fish here ourselves, guiding can be organized as well as obtaining the necessary licenses. Guests should be comfortable with animals. We currently have 2 horses/ ponies, rooster and chickens and a dog... wireless internet, password at the house.
