This delightful, stone-built, detached cottage enjoys an elevated position overlooking the sea, in a small hamlet 5 miles from Allihies, County Cork. Bright, light and airy, this Cork cottage is only 500 metres from the sea, so after a fun day in the water, it is only a short stroll back to your Cork cottage for a cosy evening and an early night in a comfy bed.
