Beautiful coastal farmhouse in West Cork, Ireland

A beautiful converted farmhouse on the sought-after West Cork coast. Swimming in a gorgeous cove is just a five minute walk away.

The farmhouse has a kitchen diner with range cooker, a cosy separate sitting room with TV and woodburner and a separate room overlooking the garden. There is a downstairs bathroom. Upstairs there are four double bedrooms and a bathroom.

There is also a separate self-contained stable annex with sitting room/kitchen plus one double bedroom and a bathroom.

There is a friendly black and white cat who will need feeding please.

I`m looking to swap this between January and April 2023 (would be good to find somewhere to stay for approx 3 months) and in return would like to find a house in the UK countryside where I can bring my dog. Something on a lovely beach would also be fantastic

About the location

The house is on the beautiful West Cork coastline, within a five minute walk of a lovely cove perfect for swimming and boating. There are stunning views out to the 100 Carberry Isles, including Cape Clear and Sherkin islands. Views also to Fastnet Lighthouse.

The house is also perfectly located between the villages of Ballydehob and Schull – the first is famous for its live music, fantastic pubs and one-star Michelin restaurant, while the second is a beautiful seaside village with a great selection of local shops.

The house is situated on one of the Fastnet Trail loops, perfect for walking and hiking. The market towns of Bantry and Skibbereen are within a 20 minute drive.
