All Modern in Traditional Setting

Rock Cottage is a converted stable building with 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.

Suitability: pets considered, children welcome,
wheelchair inaccessible, Long-term Renters welcome

Rock cottage has given us such feelings of happiness! We have been using AirBnB quite a lot in the last 5 years and Jackie and Jonathan’s cottage will have a special place in our memory as one of the best places we stayed at! The cottage is comfortable, warm and everything has been very well thought through. There is everything one might wish to enjoy a peaceful holiday in a beautiful environment. Everything has been perfect and Mizen Head is gorgeous. Lots of great places to eat delicious seafood in the area and the landscapes are of astounding beauty! Highly recommended!

HomeAway Booking – 18 Dec 2015
We were delighted to spend over a week at Jackie and Jonathan’s cottage near Schull, West Cork, at Christmas time 2015. From the moment we drove up the driveway and spotted numerous sheep and the fairy-tale-like rolling terrain in front of their house, we knew we were in for a treat. It was so nice having the owners in residence on the property. We always think it is a major plus having the owners on-site, but it is a rarity. The cottage was such a welcoming place to come home to after our times away from it. We also enjoyed our times relaxing there. The fireplace was used every night. (The owners graciously and promptly refilled the firewood basket for us every morning).

Jackie was so helpful pre-trip and during trip. Pre-trip she provided names of restaurants that might be open during the holiday period. We felt well looked after by our hosts. They took time to chat with us and make sure all was well, checking in by email and offering tips about pubs with music, etc. This type of individualized service is priceless. We would highly recommend the cottage to anyone.
