Interaction with guests
Happy to be with guests as our schedule allows and happy to help guests out in planning trips and occasional accompaniment if requested or suitable. We're a busy family but have always been very welcoming and love meeting new people. We have lots of friends too and if guests want to be part of our daily lives, they're very welcome to do so.
Quiet suburban neighbourhood with families and retired people. Pretty typical of small towns in Ireland but with a twist because we're a coastal community. Town is pretty, very navigable on foot, with variety for eating establishments, pubs, local shops, fresh air and very picturesque. Check out for more information. Whether you're interested in history, nature, the sea or walks - or even the local buzz and hospitality - you'll enjoy your time here. We'll always try to help you out with planning your trip if that's what you want.
Local taxi service to/from town centre costs Euro 5 per trip, regardless of how many people. Pleasant walk to town centre but need to be careful so use of hi-visibility vest is recommended. We supply these. Bus service (Bus Eireann No. 236) to & from Cork city, more frequent in summer months. Ferry to Whiddy island (lovely walks). Town has c. 3,000 people, so is small and very friendly. Car parking in town (free) on street and car parks. Fridays are very busy due to market - best day to be here really! Loads of places to drive to every day - Beara, Sheeps' Head, Mizen Peninsulas to name but 3 destinations - you could take a day trip every day and return as late as you like.
Other things to note
We have a cat and dog who do not roam the house - they stay in certain areas only and are never allowed near the bedrooms. We have a separate door to all the bedrooms. Ample car parking at the front of the house.
We are a non-smoking household and do not allow smoking in or near the house. No eating in the bedroom. No late night partying or no additional guests. This is a quiet neighbourhood and the space offers tranquility so we want to maintain this.

We are a family with 2 teenage children, living in West Cork for 16 years, for quality of life reasons. My husband is a Physical Therapist and I am a Development Professional. We are very involved in voluntary and community activity in the area and are involved in Airbnb because we can meet a wide variety of people. We love having company and we want our children to be aware of a wider world which they someday will explore as we have done ourselves in the past
