Portmagee Seaside Cottages is a family run business. The family is made up of Elizabeth and James and our children Paul (living and working in London and New York), Aisling (living and working in Australia) and Roisin (living and working in Cork). We also have a farm with pedigree Charolais cows and ducks. We have very good local knowledge of all that is going on, we can recommend nice places to visit and know all the local boat and activity operators. In our spare time (which can be limited!) we are avid walkers. We would be happy to advise our guests on walking routes in the locality and time permitting might also be available to lead our guests on a walk.
