Official tourism website for Cork, Ireland

We, Sharon and Mark, came home to Ireland, to settle in this lovely place, having spent ten years at sea, sailing around the world whilst cosseting other people’s guests on their magnificent yachts. We dreamt of welcoming our own guests here as well as bringing up our two boys on dry land but never far from the sea.

When planning the conversion, to a spacious holiday home, of the old stone barn, situated near our 1859 West Cork “longhouse”, comfort and attention to detail were the paramount criteria. Six years later our dreams for this have come to fruition and we are ready to welcome our guests.

Having spent so many years waking to see, from the water, exotic locations such as Bora Bora, Newport R.I, The Galapagos Islands or Auckland Harbour, we are content to wake now to the sights, sounds and smells of the Irish countryside. We are inviting you to come and share with us our laid-back, friendly and restorative West Cork lifestyle.
