The café loft is a bijou cosy bright room with breath-taking views over the surrounding pasture and mountians. It is furnished with a futon (fold out double bed) with dimmable reading lights above. There are 2 windows which let in lots of light. It has a soft fully fitted carpet, electric heater, Satellite T.V. and DVD player with a selection of DVD's to watch. There is free Wi-Fi and access to the café kitchen and seating area after closing hours. Please note that it is self-catering.
The café loft is a private room above the Coomarkane Visitor Centre Café. It is accessed by a pull down loft ladder with handles for grip and sturdy foot placements. Children should be supervised when using the ladder when the loft hatch is open.
Below the loft is the café kitchen which is well equipped with filtered hot and cold water, fridge, microwave, oven, kettle etc. There is seating in the café with a large table. A short walk from the café is the shower room/ Eco toilet.
Next to the café is the studio/workshop where art produced here can be viewed. There is a river on the land with a decked picnic area, hammocks to lie in and a small holding set on 2 acres,with organic vegetable garden, chickens, ducks, a goat, cats and a pig.
The Café is on a walking route called the Beara-Breifne Way, so access to the walk is on our doorstep. We are also 0.5 km to the Glengarriff Nature Reserve with beautiful forest and river walks and cycling routes, bikes can be hired locally.
Access to the café kitchen is available after 5pm and before 10am. There is access to café seating and tables, bathroom and grounds at all times during your stay.

We are a creative, friendly couple who love to meet new people, through travelling or by greeting guests to our little piece of heaven in the Coomarkane Valley.
The valley is situated 5 KM from Glengarriff village. The narrow road winds through the Glengarriff Nature Reserve, where Ireland's original and oldest forestation grows, with lots of native animals to be spotted from frogs to dear.The valley we live in is ideally situated for hill walkers, cyclists and nature lovers.
