Holiday home
Ocean View is a charming holiday property full of character. This semi-detached cottage is located six miles from Skibbereen in rural Cork. The accommodation is well equipped and cosy, with a warm and welcoming wood burner in the sitting room, a large kitchen with dining area, and a delightful "viewing spot" across the sea to Heir Island at the top of the garden. Skibbereen offers plenty for all the family to do, including the Heritage Centre, West Cork Arts Centre, a golf course and an indoor sports centre. The harbour town of Baltimore is within reach for water sports, dolphin and whale watching and fascinating shipwrecks.

You'll be guaranteed a warm welcome by the inhabitants of the town of Skibbereen. Located at the heart of some of Ireland's most stunning scenery, the town prides itself on its wonderful local produce, and its bustling weekly country and farmers markets showcase the delicious local fare. Sandy beaches, secluded coves, rivers, lakes, hills and forests are all within easy reach and there are incredible dolphin and whale watching opportunities available. This unspoilt area of West Cork also offers the West Cork Arts Centre and Skibbereen Heritage Centre, a superb 18-hole golf course and an indoor sports centre with a fully equipped gym. The picturesque destinations of Leap and Rosscarbery overlooking the ruggedly beautiful West Cork coastline are easy to reach, as are Ballydehob, Schull and Bantry.

What a stunning part of Ireland, never seen the sea so blue on our many coastal drives.. My stay was comfortable and great value for money. Norreen the lady who owns Ocean View ensured we were will informed of our visit down south to Cork and where to go, she has been very kind, welcome and friendly. We gave her two lovely dogs treats as a thank you gesture before we left. Was glad to have been able to bring my own little dogs too.

This was our second time staying at Ocean View. It was very good and comfortable. The owner was very welcoming, way beyond anyone's expectations. A lovely friendly host, and always there if you needed her.

We were very late arriving from Rosslare to Skibbereen. It being very dark we phoned the owner for directions. She did more than this, she came to Skibbereen and guided us the 8 kilometres to our cottage. The following day she helped us to find our way to and from the main road to our cottage. She allowed us to take our two large dogs, off the lead, around her beautiful gardens. The property was at all times warm, comfortable and cosy. Our landlady was always helpful when we needed information

The cottage was much better than we expected - the photograph of it doesn't do it justice. Everything you could need was supplied. The proprietor was very nice and friendly, and although she lives beside the cottage, was unobtrusive. The location was perfect - out in the country. And although a few miles from the nearest town, it is quite central in the South West, so within a reasonable distance to all the tourist areas in either direction. The cottage is also at the end of a lane, has a large garden (well kept) and yard, and so is safe for children and dogs. It is also an ideal spot for leisure cycling as the wee country roads are definitely not busy. We really had a great time at Ocean View.
