About this listing
In West Cork is the busy market town of Bantry located on The Wild Atlantic Way. Four miles away is the ancient townland of Derreenkealig in the unspoilt Mealagh Valley where this self contained, self-catering apartment is available in my house.
The apartment is in the upstairs of my house and is completely self contained. There is a well equipped kitchen and comfortable sitting area. There are two bedrooms - a double and a single, though an additional single bed for a child can be added to the single room. The building is safe and secure and well protected against fire.
Guests have access to the apartment as well as a children's play area (at own risk) and patio, secret garden and generous green space in front of the house.
Interaction with guests
Very happy to provide advice and information about local walks, horse riding, Whiddy Island trips. Owner is resident here for 30 years.
This is an area of great natural beauty. The mountain views and walks hereabouts are very special. There are a number of ancient monuments nearby and it is a place of peace and tranquility. Also, however, there are some charming pubs as well as some superb restaurants in town. Lake and sea fishing, golf, horse and pony tracking too.
The house is four miles from town. Although taxis are available in Bantry, to get the most of this area, a car is necessary. Cork City and Airport an hour and three quarters. Regular bus line to Bantry from Cork. Train link to Cork from Dublin. Ryanair and Aer Lingus from London, Amsterdam, Paris, etc.
