This is a small apartment with 2 single beds, ideal for somewhere to lay your head and get a bite to eat, not any good for hanging out in all day !! Great for sleeping and to use as a base while visiting the wonderful South of Ireland.
Welcome to my gorgeous apartment on the side of a 16th century Farmhouse overlooking Cork Harbour. Cork Harbour is a natural harbour and river estuary at the mouth of the River Lee in County Cork, Ireland. It is one of several which lay claim to the title of "second largest natural harbour" in the world by navigational area.
It is also just 3 miles away from historic Cobh. The town of Cobh in East Cork is located on Great Island, one of three islands in Cork Harbour. The other two islands are Fota and Little Island and all three are now joined by roads and bridges.
Cove as in the 'Cove of Cork' was the original name for Cobh but this changed to Queenstown in 1849 after a visit by Queen Victoria. After the foundation of the Irish Free State in 1922, the town reverted back to the current name of Cobh.
In the town square of Cobh, there is a memorial to the victims of The Lusitania, many of whom are buried in the local cemetery. The ship was sunk off Kinsale by a German submarine in 1915 and led to the United States of America joining World War 1.
Another unhappy association is with the Titanic, 'the safest liner in the world'. Queenstown was her last port of call on her fateful maiden voyage.
The harbour at Cobh has played a huge role throughout Irish history but never as important as during the Famine Years of (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). The Queenstown Story at the Cobh Heritage Centre tells us just how big a role Cobh played.
We are also just 1 mile away from sleepy East ferry marina of Marlogue.
Zugang für Gäste
Free to roam around a working tillage farm, with some hens, ducks and one pig. great views of the harbour, super on good days when the sun shines, not so good on wet windy or foggy days.

Roads around here are very narrow, so take great care when driving around.. Once you see the grass appearing in the middle of the road there is a good chance that it will come to an end or get so narrow it will be difficult to drive !
