About this listing
Peace and tranquility abound here. Nestled amongst an old famine workhouse and centuries old mills this is an area rich in folklore and history. A great location from which to explore West Cork and the Beara peninsula and only a twenty minute walk into Bantry Town. We do a great breakfast too, you can choose from Belgian Waffles, Poached eggs with balsamic roasted tomatoes or a really delicious porridge. Or on the odd occasion I may send you out on a kayak to catch your own!
Donemark Falls is a detached house, in a secluded setting. From the grounds you can take in views of a waterfall, salmon pools and the ruins of an old mill. During the summer months this is a busy spot for salmon leaping up the falls.
A barbecue is available for use should you catch yourself a fish and there is plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening.
Steeped in history, legend has it that this was the landing place for the very first inhabitants of Ireland. It was also home to a tannery, brewery, mill and a work house during the Irish Famine.
You will have access to our lounge area which has a wood stove, tea/coffee station, boardgames, a small library and a miniature pool table. A continental breakfast is included in the rate and can be served outdoors if the weather allows.
Interaction with guests
You may interact as much or as little as you wish. I live here myself so will be on hand most of the time for advice or suggestions on local attractions.
Donemark Falls is a detached house and in a very private setting. It is located at the end of a small lane off the Wild Atlantic Way. The garden has seating areas where you can enjoy the peace and tranquility of the falls and watching the wildlife it attracts.
