Set on the edge of one of the few old growth oak forests in Ireland, this architect-designed home with a very large guest room, offers 4-star amenities. Only 5 minutes from Glengarriff village, it's well located to explore West Cork, particularly the Beara peninsula, and south Kerry. Super Host 2014-2016.


Enjoy Bed & Breakfast in a luxurious home in the Glengarriff Nature Reserve's old growth oak forest. Right on the boundary of the reserve, this home offers spectacular views, fabulous off-road walking trails, and is central to exploring West Cork and the Wild Atlantic Way.

This recently built, architect-designed home is a private retreat in one of West Cork's most beautiful spots. A private large bedroom with an American king sized bed and an adjacent, private bathroom looks out over the surrounding forest and mountains.

Enjoy access to the rest of the house that has an open-plan living room/dining room with floor-to-ceiling windows that let in spectacular views from every direction and a fireplace and jazz and classical music CDs for the evenings. A cozy library/television room has internet connection, WiFi, and a large collection of DVDs. The energy-efficient light-filled house, filled with books and contemporary Irish art, is very privately situated on 4 acres of wild meadows and woodlands.

Breakfast is tea or coffee, juice, bread or toast, jam, cheese, yoghurt, and cereal.

This is a large house for you to enjoy, with plenty of privacy and an accomodating host when you need it.

The house overlooks what was formerly Lord Bantry's hunting estate, now a 250 acre forest reserve that offers over 60 kilometers of walking trails just out the door, yet the house is only 5 minutes drive (35 minute walk) from Glengarriff village with great pubs and dining. It is on the Beara Way, the long distance walking trail of the Beara Penninsula. This is a very beautiful and quiet place to be, to enjoy fresh air, bird song, spring water, a garden and terrace, and the plants and animals of the forest. It's a part of Ireland that few see, truly a magical place.

Glengarriff is a charming village on a small harbour north of Bantry. Surrounded by stunning mountains and old oak forests, its romantic position on the water has attracted visitors since the early days of tourism in Ireland. There are great pubs and restaurants, craft shops, an art gallery, a small grocery store with post office and a hairdressers and pharmacy in the village. Garnish Island (Illnacullen) in Glengarriff harbour is a world-famous garden. It is a walker's paradise, and a good base to use to explore West Cork and Kerry.

Located at the gateway to the Beara penninsula, this is one of the most rugged and beautiful parts of Ireland. Enjoying a moderate climate most of the year, it's paradise for travellers who want to take their time to discover why West Cork is one of the best places in Europe to enjoy exceptional landscape, friendly people, good walking, and good food. The house is equidistant to Bantry town and Kenmare, both lovely market towns with good shopping, restaurants and entertainment that are 20-30 minutes away. There are several golf courses within easy reach of the house, and boating and fishing in Glengarriff harbour and Bantry Bay.

There is public bus service (Bus Eireann) from Cork to Glengarriff year round. Walking time to/from Glengarriff village is about 35 minutes each way. Biking in the area is fabulous.

Catherine's house is gorgeous, clean and comfortable with outstanding views. It's located in the heart of hiking territory. I can't praise her house and hospitality highly enough.

My wife and I stayed here for the long Aug. bank holiday weekend. The housing, serenity, and location exceeded our expectations - which were high given the description and previous guest reports. As reported in other reviews, Catherine has created a peaceful and contemporary abode very close to Glengarriff, but far enough down a wooded road to feel removed from the hustle and bustle of town. We appreciated the large, well-appointed bedroom and luxurious bathroom, as well as the wonderful breakfast each morning. Although we didn't get a chance to walk in the local woods (right out the front door, basically) because of the rain, we chose instead to spend a half day on Ilnacullin and the ferry landing in the center of town was a five minute drive from the house - so very convenient. We would echo the previous recommendations that this is place to lodge if you are looking for quiet reflection and relaxation close to Gengarriff. Thank you Catherine for such a lovely bank holiday!

You cannot imagine what a magical place Catherines home is. Words cannot do justice, it must be experienced. We were surrounded by rolling moss hills, dense forrest and a trickling stream. This was just the scenery, Catherine's emmaculate home was a gift in itself. A bright, oversized bedroom, a kitchen stocked for our use and a bold media room. We loved talking with Catherine over dinner about life in Ireland, local folklore and the mystical side of things. We could not have been happier. Thank you Catherine, if you're ever in California, we would love to see you.

Catherine's home was just as beautiful as I imagined. She is an art lover, and this space epitomizes that (man-made and natural art). The location cannot be beat if you are seeking serenity and wonder amidst breathtaking hills carpeted with 50 shades of green. The bedroom is just the rarest treat - it is so spacious and light filled. Not only the bedroom, but the entire house itself is clean and uncluttered - which I personally appreciate very much. Catherine was kind and helpful with my questions. (She even supplied me with a box and mailing label so that I could ship things!) The unfolding of Catherine's story and personality was a joy to discover. I did not stay nearly long enough, but the few conversations I was lucky to have with her revealed someone of initiative, caring and creativity. Most precious of all - through a seeming 'tangent' in our last conversation, Catherine gifted me with potent inspiration to take away with me on my pilgrimage. My deepest thanks, Catherine!

Host Catherine was great, we had much in common and enjoyed talking about art, artist and galleries. She was vey helpful with information, direction and travel advice. Room was large and the setting very private.

Catherine's house in the forest was nothing short of fabulous. The views were amazing and the house was spectacular! We used it as a base for a couple days of bike riding in the region (the primary purpose of our visit) and it was perfect. It was off the beaten path enough so that it felt like we were secluded. The *only* downside was that it would have been a bit of a trek to walk into the little town... so the designated driver between the two of us couldn't have more than a beer with dinner (since we stuck to driving into town after our long rides), but it was a small downside to being in such a fabulous location. The breakfast Catherine left out for us every morning was a much welcome addition! And Sara the Boston Terrier was the BEST. Highly recommended if you're looking for a less-touristy alternative to Kenmare, and for a lovely Irish countryside getaway.
