This lovely old house is set up a long metalled road above the owner's own house.. It has a wonderfully remote and private feel about it and the view from the living room and bedroom windows is very beautiful. The horizon is a ridge ridge leading the the Sugarloaf Mountain. Following the Beara Way to the col of this ridge before the descent to Adrigole and bearing east to the summit is a worthy mountain day out. The Beara Way passes behind the house and can take you down to the lovely little town of Glengarriff or up and onto a number of circular hill walks. The area is stunning, peaceful, and central to exploring the south west from Killarney to Skibbereen, from Mizzen Head to Bray Head! The great jutting peninsulas of the south west are a feast of rock, ocean and wildlife. You can kayak, ride, walk, climb and visit numerous local attractions.
The owner of the house is a lovely local gentleman and we were privileged to become acquainted with him. His house was a gem, practical, easy to be in, spacious and warm. The cuckoos (it was May) Ravens, sheep and donkeys were our company during the beautiful sunsets. Thank you Mr C. Ian and Sally, Cornwall.
