Riverview Apartment Self-Catering

Apartment situated in the heart of Skibbereen recognised as the capital of beautiful West Cork and the most central point for touring the entire South West of Ireland. 

The apartment is on floor two (served by stairs and lift) of this architect-designed apartment block built-in 2007. It consists of two bedrooms, one single and one double room and with comfortable sleeping accommodation also provided on a bed settee. There is a fully equipped Kitchenette with full electric Cooking facilities on hob, oven, grill, microwave oven and toaster. Also provided are a waffle maker and a George Foreman Sandwich Maker. A spacious Dining / Living room with Satellite/Terrestrial HD TV with a large selection of HD quality channels. Free high-speed 4G broadband is also supplied (with conditions) throughout the apartment.

Riverview Apartment is located just off the main Street of Skibbereen and free parking is generally available in the courtyard, on a rare occasion when it is not available in the courtyard, you can generally find spaces on the lane behind the apartment block. There is also time-limited free parking available always in the Public Car Park the entrance to which is just 100 metres away directly across the Main Street beside the renowned Uillinn West Cork Art Centre. Also within the car park is a second car park with unlimited stay belonging to Fields Supervalu Supermarket. All car parking areas mentioned are protected by CCTV. The town is noted for having some of the best quality restaurants in West Cork, serving a wide range of local artisan produce. There are numerous eateries, pubs/bars and the famous West Cork Hotel all within a couple of minutes walk from Riverview Apartment.

The area is also recognised as the ideal location for touring West Cork generally but in particular for its proximity (4.5) miles from Skibbereen) to Lough Hyne, Irelands first Nature Reserve, a beautiful inland sea lake unique in Northern Europe where you can swim, kayak or go walking safely on the roads or on forest paths to the top of Knockomagh from where you have spectacular views of West Cork coastline from Old Head of Kinsale to the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse and beyond to the Kerry mountains. Bring a packed lunch if you go to Lough Hyne as there are no commercial outlets allowed in this area to help preserve its unique beauty. Travel on to Baltimore (5 miles more) where you can eat and drink and enjoy this lovely fishing village or travel on the ferries to Sherkin and Cape Clear Island. The inexpensive ferries travel throughout the year. You can also join yacht hire groups and whale watching trips from Baltimore or Union Hall port. Other really beautiful places to visit within a short driving distance of Skibbereen are Castletownshend and Union Hall where War of the Buttons were filmed, Glandore, Schull, Barley Cove & Crookhaven where scenes for "The Last Jedi" were filmed on the Brow Head. Travel a little further to Bantry Bay, Glengarriff and on to Kenmare and Killarney which is less than a two-hour drive through spectacular scenery with mountain and coastal vistas around every bend.

Self-Catering Reviews

July 2019
Frank, the owner of the apartment, was extremely understanding when our arrival was delayed into the late night. He was very obliging and very kind in his response to any of our requests. You can't really beat the location if you're looking to explore West Cork. Everything you need is readily available and the apartment is super-comfortable.
