Rock Cottage Country House – A selection of self catering cottages set in one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland on The Wild Atlantic Way

Rock Cottage was everything described in the listing and so much more. The cottage is superbly maintained and an incredibly comfortable place to return to at day’s end or for that to just spend the day recharging. The cottage is comfortably and well furnished and the 17 acres of farm land are a delight to explore. The property is well located to provide easy access to the Mizen Peninsula, Sheep Heads and Beara Peninsula. Jackie is a delightful host. Her personal warmth and enthusiasm for her property are evident throughout. My visit to this remote and beautiful area of Ireland was definitely enhanced by staying at Rock Cottage.

A peaceful spot in one of Ireland”s most unique and beautiful locations


Learn more about our extensive private grounds. With animals to befriend and ruins to explore.

We are very “doggy friendly” and we are getting more and more guests with their pets, mostly dogs of course. We are unique in the area as we have so much land for you to take your dogs for walks as well as our own dogs for them to socialise with. We provide dog beds if required and will be installing a “doggy shower” very soon.
Note – limit of 1 large dog or two small dogs and please refer to the Rates page as there is a daily charge per dog.


Rock Cottage proved to be exactly what we were looking for, and more! The owners Jackie and Jonathan, made us feel very welcome to their idyllic piece of West Cork as well as allowing us the opportunity to meet their growing menagerie including donkey’s, ducks, chickens and cat. While the cottage offers all you need for home cooking, it is also within a short drive of a variety of decent restaurants serving great food, Blair’s Cove House and The Herons Cove in Goleen to name a couple. If you are looking for a peaceful escape, complete darkness at night and waking to birdsong, look no further. My wife and I agreed this has to be our best Holiday Cottage experience to date, in arguably the most beautiful part of County Cork.
