Kilcoe Cottage

Farmhouse -
2 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Ballydehob, County Cork
Kilcoe Cottage is a five star, spacious, luxurious, self catering holiday home away from home in a peaceful location just 3 miles east of the quaint village of Ballydehob and seven miles west of the bustling market town of Skibbereen. Sitting adjacent to our 1850s farmhouse on nearly two acres it has glorious rural views which are interspersed with glimpses of Roaring Water Bay, especially from the Hot Tub.
With the Mizen Head (Irelands southernmost point) and Lough Hyne (nature reserve and tidal lake) within easy driving distance and the fishing villages of Schull and Baltimore just a stones throw away there are a myriad of things to see and do. West Cork is famous for its food and hospitality.

There are numerous pubs, cafes and restaurants to choose from or if you prefer to eat in, catering is available here at the cottage on request...
