Property Description:

A unique and historical 19th Century stone property of character to rent, situated on the West Cork coast, 6 miles south west of Clonakilty (voted most popular vacation town in Ireland), 3 miles from Rosscarbery and adjacent to a mile long sandy beach (surfers paradise) and Kilkern Lake to the eastern gable (viewed from the Master bedroom). Recently renovated, the old stone cottage offers superb accommodation in the midst of spectacular scenery, 2 km from the Galley Head lighthouse.

Formerly, a hunting lodge owned by Lord and Lady Carbery of nearby Castlefreke Estate, the cottage was used for parties and week-end retreats by the nobility.
The current owners have extended and sensitively modernised the old stone dwelling, carefully conserving all the original features i.e., sash windows, high ceilings, doors etc. This superior self catering cottage has lots of living space. In addition to the exquisite master bedroom with views of Kilkern Lake, there are 3 more tastefully furnished bedrooms, a reception room, large sitting/dining room, modern kitchen, large conservatory/breakfast room seating 8, and utility /boot room. The property is gated with lots of parking space and a large garden to the rear. Two bedrooms are ensuite with power showers and the main bathroom has a jacuzzi bath with an integrated power shower. There is also a security alarm.
This is a dream vacation rental property in County Cork, Ireland, one of the few unspoiled areas left in the world where the rugged cliffs and coastline, stunning seascapes, and twisting roads are dominated by the Gothic spectre of Castlefreke Castle. Nothing has changed in recent years. At night, the local lighthouse lights up the night sky and the rumble of crashing waves can be heard hitting the beach. The cottage is one hour from Cork Airport and ferries. Visit www.ladycarberyslakecottage.com.

Cottage rental includes use of two bicycles. World renowned golf courses in the area include The Old Head, Kinsale as well as courses in Bandon, Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Bantry and Killarney; all within driving distance.
There are sailing schools at nearby Glandore and Baltimore,and ferries to Sherkin and cape Clear Islands. Other coastal amenities include Deep Sea Angling, and whale watching boat trips including freshwater scuba-diving at Lough Hyne Nature Reserve, Horse-riding and Trekking Centers, Surfing and Walking Trails.
Local country pubs include Dan Toms and Fishers Cross.
Nearby towns boast excellent restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets.
