Charming 1 bedroom apartment set in a quiet but beautiful location close to Blarney & Cork.
Peaceful, laid back and relaxing would best describe your stay.

The space

A lovely (self catering) apartment adjacent to owners home set on private grounds surrounded by picturesque countryside in the Berrings town land.

Guest access

This delightful apartment is adjacent to the owners residence situated on a working cattle and tillage farm. It is located in Berrings which is 15 kms from Cork City and 9kms from Blarney. A relaxing setting boasting wonderful countryside views in a mature garden which is shared with the owners’ home for your enjoyment. An open fire is to be enjoyed on those chilly nights.

The apartment features a double bedroom, sitting room with a sofa bed which can comfortably sleep 4 people. It has a bathroom with a shower and a separate fitted kitchen with good electric oven, fridge/freezer and microwave.

A very well cared for holiday home perfect for single, couples or family holiday makers wanting a sample of country life.

Closest to Berrings is Blarney which is just 8kms from Cork City, set in beautiful wooded countryside, it is an ideal base to visit the many wonderful sights of Cork and Kerry. Steeped in history and magical charm, Blarney village offers the visitor a host of wonderful things to do and places to discover.

One of the finest things that impresses the first time visitor is the well preserved village square. Blarney is one of the few villages in Ireland which has such a fine amenity, and today it continues to be a focal point of village life. In Tudor style, Blarney village has developed around the square which is owned and carefully maintained by Blarney Castle Estate.

Some great sights to visit include the legendary Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle. For many of the visitors to Blarney, their first priority is to kiss the famous Blarney Stone high up on the Castle battlements. Tradition holds that those who kiss the Blarney Stone will be endowed with the gift of eloquence - "the gift of the gab", as the locals call it.
"There is a stone that whoever kisses never misses to grow eloquent, he may clamber to a lady's chamber or become a member of parliament".

Shopping is a pleasure in the village where there are a number of excellent outlets, including the world famous Blarney Woollen Mills. Established in 1824, the outlet has become one of the largest craft shops in Ireland and is renowned for its quality produce. Blarney in olden days had been the site of thirteen mills with the production of linen, plour, paper, bleaching, dying and iron production, due to the natural layout of Blarney with the River Martin flowing into the Blarney River and this in turn flowing into the Shournagh River which proceeds to flow into the River Lee at Carrigrohane, near Cork City.

Blarney offers a superb variety of recreational pursuits to suit all ages. The golfer has several excellent eighteen hole courses to choose from; two within five miles of the village. There is a network of quiet country lanes for the walking enthusiast. Locally, you can fish for salmon, wild brown trout or coarse fish. There are several sports and leisure centres for fitness buffs located in the area, which offer everything from swimming to gymnasium facilities. For families there's a delightful woodland farm which features a meandering nature trail offering a mixture of fun, education and relaxation.

The apartment is adjacent to the owners residence and as this is a working farm.

Betty was simply awesome! First of all she picked us up from a nearby pub so we had no troubles finding the house. Then she had buns, fruits and fresh eggs from their farm waiting for us. As the house is in a very rural area it is definitly important to have your own car! When ever we needed advise, Betty and her lovely husband were more than helpful. They really are the perfect hosts! On the last evening they even prepared some irish coffee for us! The house (or better the part of the house that you live in) consists of one bedroom with a shower, one bathroom, a living room with a fireplace (here you find a couch that easily fits 2 persons) and a kitchen. Although we travelled a lot we enjoyed our glass of wine or whiskey in front of the fire! All in all I can only recommend this apartment very highly and I hope that we meet both of them again. Thank you for the wonderful time!

We were made to feel not only very welcome but also relaxed and at ease in Betty's home. The accommodation was more than we expected and that little piece of heaven, coming up the drive, was evident. We were able to relax and read' come and go as we wanted and could keep our bicycles in the shed! The location was ideal for us,' we had travelled by car, so we could decide what we fancied doing on the day. We would recommend it highly.

Our stay at Lane Farm was perfect. If you want to experience country living in Ireland this is for you. Betty and Owen are great hosts and know so helpful. The house was well equipped and very clean. It was such a treat to have the fire set every night for a relaxing evening. We can't wait to return on another trip to Ireland.

Betty and Owen were very welcoming and helpful. The house was well decorated, modern and with excellent facilities. Any small query was immediately sorted and me and my family felt very relaxed in their company-including their dog Rex!! We would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful, quiet escape in the gorgeous hills of Ireland's countryside and just a short drive to the picturesque Blarney castle and square and the historic Cork City center. Highly recommend for not only a relaxing stay but also a great jumping point for sightseeing and day trips. As an added bonus, the roads are lovely for jogging and Rex, the dog, is adorable.

Betty's place was absolutely wonderful. Great size, very clean and had everything we needed. We loved the quiet and peaceful location, great to relax and unwind but well located for exploring the surrounding area of cork and kerry. Betty was a great host, very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend staying here.
