The space
The Piggery is arranged over two floors: the lower floor has a comfortable living and eating area, separate kitchen and adjacent shower room, while upstairs is a large and light-filled sleeping and living area with a double bed and a single bed which doubles as a day bed. It's ideally suited for one person, a couple or a couple with an additional person.
The Piggery is deliberately low-tech - there is an excellent wi-fi connection throughout the property but no other audio-visual equipment - we encourage guests to bring their own devices if they want to.

Where you’ll be

Skibbereen, County Cork, Ireland

The Piggery is set in the grounds of a historic property one mile outside the market town of Skibbereen. The property owners host the annual West Cork History Festival in August.

A car is essential to get to the property and to get around West Cork, although you can walk into Skibbereen itself - it takes about 20 minutes.

Skibbereen has a range of amenities including supermarkets, independent food shops, excellent cafes & restaurants, chemists, gift shops and bookshops as well as an Arts Centre.

The Piggery's surroundings are rural and peaceful, with the coast close by - the nearest beach is a 10 minute drive away. Beautiful Lough Hyne s 15 minutes away.

The Piggery is within 20 minutes drive of the towns of Baltimore, Ballydehob, Schull and Clonalkilty, all well worth a visit. It is also close to the Wild Atlantic Way.
