Cottage
Eagle Hill Cottage is a traditional stone cottage to rent close to Castletownbere town on the Beara Peninsula in the heart of West Cork. The house is completely refurbished to a very high standard, set in the Beara Peninsula, along the Wild Atlantic Way in South West Cork. This self catering holiday home sits among the Caha Mountains with its own private road, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life yet only 3 km from the fishing village of Castletownbere. The cottage is close to the Cork and Kerry border so it is the ideal base for trips to the bustling towns of Kenmare, Killarney, Glengarriff etc. Some of the best, walking, cycling and driving tours in Ireland are in this area – Beara Peninsula, Sheeps Head Peninsula, the Dingle peninsula and of course the Ring of Kerry.

This house is available to rent from as little as two nights. Boasting 3 double bedrooms (one with a bunk bed also) it has all the mod cons and facilities that a guest would want, yet keeping its charm and character. With spectacular views of Bere Island and Bantry Bay, it is a good base for touring and seeing all the sights or just to relax. The patio is the ideal setting for relaxing with a glass of wine while enjoying the uninterrupted views of Berehaven Harbour and the unspoilt scenery. Imagine relaxing in front of the log fire after your day (with logs supplied).

Ireland at its VERY best!
We wanted a traditional cottage, tucked away in a remote spot with not another human being in sight. And what did we get? Eagle Hill Cottage. An old but beautifully renovated cottage with wonderful amenities (including a snooker room!!) - the most perfectly located holiday ‘home’ we have ever stayed in – with unbelievable views of lush countryside and sparkling sea – and to crown it all, the totally miraculously gorgeous sunny weather (and I should know as I’m Irish, born and bred). Coming ‘home’ after a very busy and tiring day visiting key beauty spots it was so welcoming to just to sit back with a glass of wine in front of a roaring open log fire and. So did we enjoy ourselves? YES! From the very moment that we arrived, up to the last minute that we drove away for the final time – and then we hated it! (because we were leaving of course!) Thank you to Anne Marie and Mick for letting us share your very special place. Jeff and Sue (September 2020)

Schitterende locatie met prachtig uitzicht
Locatie is schitterend, gelegen aan de Beara way wandelroute. Inrichting is wat verouderd maar is verder prima! Houdt er wel rekening mee dat het huisje donker en klam is. Zeker als je wat langer blijft. Bij donder en nat weer is dat niet fijn.

Thank you for your comments. This is the first time any guest has complained of the house being dark. This cottage is over a hundred years old with small windows at the front. As a lot of the ground floor is open plan I think compensates for this. The majority of our guests have loved staying at the cottage with its charm and decor and cosy feel. Maybe a more modern built house might suit you in the future. We are very happy with the cottage and so are our guests which is testament of the many repeat guests that return regularly to the cottage.

Excellent Get Away Cottage
Have to say that we really had a great break away in Eagle Cottage. Despite the very stormy weather we encountered the cottage was so well equipped and cosy, we especially loved the log fire that we used extensively. A real breakaway location, a very well renovated cottage so a great combination of old and new but still retaining character as well. AnneMaire was a fantastic host, very welcoming, went through everything and supplied great local information. So would highly recommend the cottage for a breakaway.

Komfortables Cottage mit super Ausblick
Die Lage des Cottage ist einmalig. Wunderschön gelegen, einsam in der Natur mit tollem Ausblick auf die Bantry-Bucht. Das Cottage selbst ist sehr gemütlich, geräumig und hochwertig ausgestattet. Es war für uns das beste Haus, das wir bisher in Irland gemietet hatten und wir sind nun das dritte Jahr in Folge auf dieser Insel. Die Eigentümer Anne Marie und Mick sind sehr nett und bemüht, alle Wünsche zu erfüllen. Wir bekamen extra zusätzliches Holz für den Kaminofen und ein Lämmchen streicheln zu dürfen, wurde auch gleich ermöglicht. Im Schuppen nebenan kann man sich mit Billardspielen üben. Wir können dieses Cottage nur bestens weiter empfehlen und werden sicher auch selbst wieder dorthin gehen.

Beautiful cottage in a beautiful area.
This is the second time I've stayed in this cottage in the last 6 months. Both times the owners were accommodating, and made everything very easy. It is well stocked and they are accessible if you have any needs. Only a couple minutes drive to the lovely little town ( which has nearly everything you could need). the Views are spectacular. I could not recommend this place enough. I will certainly be staying again sometime in the future.

home from home
due to being let down by another property, we found ,by providence, this rental and am so glad we did. The house is about 5 mins by car from Castletownbere and is half a kilometre off the main road .It has a view to die for and is really comfortable,indeed a home from home. We will be back,,,,,,
