This newly converted stone cottage was originally a 17th century stable block where Lord Bandon kept his horses. Nearby are the “Old Coachhouses”. Set in the grounds of Rock Cottage Country House.
The conversion, completed in late 2016, is to the highest standard with a fully fitted kitchen, open plan living room with dining area. Separate bedroom with a modern en suite shower room & WC.
This sensitive conversion offers all modern conveniences on the inside, but preserving its historic character on the outside. It is situated in the walled courtyard/garden of a Georgian hunting lodge dating back to 1826. The property stands on 17 acres of garden, paddocks and heather covered hills. A short walk leads onto a hill, where the stunning views over Dunmanus Bay and the rugged landscape unfold and where a bench allows the visitor to sit and enjoy the magical sunsets. The setting of the entire property is unique and utterly charming. Tranquility is guaranteed, but it is also close to everything the area has to offer.

Fabulous location for our four day trip exploring West Cork. The stables was everything we could have hoped for and was a perfect ‘home’ for our short stay. Rock Cottage is so peaceful and is a wonderful way to escape from reality for a few days. Jacqueline and Johnathan were wonderful hosts and were super welcoming, however, the best welcome was saved for our 5 year old daughter from the two beautiful resident dogs, they truly made our daughters holiday – and to top it off she was able to feed the donkeys each morning. Words can’t really do this place justice, and we look forward to returning and getting away from it all once more.
