Ireland Cottage Vacation Rentals 3 bedroom Self Catering Holiday Home in Dunmanway County Cork.
Our property is a traditional 18th century Irish farmhouse set in the heart of West Cork's picturesque, unspoiled countryside.
Its central location and proximity to Cork City and Airport make it a perfect base for exploring the West Cork region, or as a destination in itself for those seeking an authentic, first-hand experience of a working Irish farm, where life moves in harmony with the seasons, as it has done for generations.
The Farm Cottage 3 bedroom
This cottage is the largest rental property on the farm, combining many traditional elements of the original 18th century building with modern amenities.
With two double bedrooms (one en-suite) and one twin bedroom, the Farmhouse can comfortably sleep six people, making it an ideal option for families or groups of friends.
Entering via the sunny front conservatory, guests are welcomed into an elegant living room with feature fireplace, ideal for socialising, or for quiet evenings curled up with a book. Adjacent to the living room is a large family/dining room with television. The family room leads in to a separate large, fully-equipped kitchen with several unique features including mahogany cabinets and a fantastic Stanley range cooker. Upstairs, guests will find the two generously proportioned double bedrooms as well as a twin room.
Only 50 minutes' drive from Cork International Airport, Dunmanway is geographically ideally situated to visit and experience the many hills, upland habitats, lakes and coastline of the Southwest Coast, renowned worldwide as a hot spot for sightings of rare birds. Whale watching is another rewarding activity, with frequent sightings of fin whales, basking sharks, pilot whales, minke whales, and other species.
Guests can enjoy fishing for species including Atlantic Salmon, Brown Trout and Sea Trout, excellent hiking, game shooting in season, horse-riding, pitch and putt and kayaking. There are also many historical sites in the local area including the birthplace of Sam Maguire.

We were made feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. The cottage was lovely and the stove was already lighting when we arrived making it nice and warm. The kitchen area was perfect and the bed was very comfortable. We both had a great stay and would hope to return some day.
Due to the delayed arrival of my flight into Cork I was obliged to change my original travel plans. Instead of travelling directly to Castletown Berehaven I decided to make a stopover on route. It was an inspired choice. It was an effortless 50 minute drive from the airport. Signposted the Farm, it is located off the Cork to Dunmanway road. It was well marked off the R587/R585/N22 road making it easy to find, even on a dark, cold, wet winters evening. Arriving in the heart of the countryside and encountering very little traffic was just what the doctor ordered following a few long stressful days. Arriving to the warmth and the wonderful homely smell of a wood stove, my very spacious self contained unit was sheer bliss. My hostess, Abina was most welcoming ensuring that I had everything I needed and that my electric blanket was switched on, which resulted in the most welcome peaceful night's rest. A welcome pack was provided which included fruit, biscuits and a few other bits and pieces that I fail to recall. Bottled water was provided for beside my bed - even though Abina assured me that the tap water was perfectly safe to drink. There was also coffee and tea provided including a carton of fresh milk in the fridge should I require it. Having to catch up on a few emails before I retired I was delighted to find that the WiFi coverage was excellent much to my surprise. I wish to highly recommend this accommodation to holidaymakers who like peace and quite and to all frazzled weary travellers. Tim told me that the family have being receiving guest since the early seventies and it certainly shows. It is thank to this level of such genuine unassuming service that earned Ireland the title of 'a hundred thousand welcomes'. For me it proved to be a real find, extraordinarily good value and I will certainly return
