This snug, grass-roofed eco-cabin offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy a warm Irish welcome, mountain walks on the Beara Way or snorkling through nearby reefs. Sample local cheeses, lamb, fish and seafood or stoke up the wood-burning stove, have a glass of wine and and savour the peace and tranquility!

Stedet
This remote and peaceful location offers an opportunity to unwind, enjoy an unspoiled and breath-takingly beautiful environment and recharge your batteries!

There is a comfy double bed (197cm x 154cm / 6ft 5.5in x 5ft), a pull out sofa bed in the living area, and a child-sized floor bed or baby cot on request, so we can comfortably accommodatecouples, 2-3 friends and small families, and solo travellers.

A five to ten minute stroll takes you to a local swimming spot, fishing point, pre-Christian archaeological remains, picturesque ruins or cliff views.

You may see seals, dolphins, diving gannets or, if you are lucky, the local otters. It is an ideal place to kick back and relax. In bad weather you can play cards or board games or just sway in the hammock seat in front of the fire, listen to music and daydream...

If you fancy a dip we can lend you wet suits, snorkel masks, goggles and flippers and show you some lovely accessible swimming spots where you can take the plunge. It's so close that we provide dressing gowns and plastic shoes so you can just go down in your swim suit, dry off afterwards and pop back to the cabin for a hot shower.

Whether you prefer a gentle ramble, walk or hike, we can recommend nearby hill and coastal walks and signposted loop routes on the adjacent Beara Way. There are even hats and scarves and jackets to borrow if you didn't come prepared, as well as wellington boots of various sizes.

If the weather isn't in your favour or you prefer to lounge around we have a library of books, cds, radio, cards and games to keep you amused in front of the fire. Clear nights are great for star-gazing as the area has very little light pollution.

We are avid foodies, and can recommend where you can get the best local free range hen and duck eggs, fish, seafood, lamb and local Mileens Cheese directly from the cheese makers, as well as shops where you can find organic, wholefoods and vegetarian or vegan fare. Fear not if you are a coffee-drinker, as there is a cafetiere (French press).

The kitchen is very well equipped, with full-sized oven, grill, stove, toaster and hand blender. You should be able to cook anything you want and if you need anything we can probably lend it to you. There are 'Arrival/Survival' Supplies for your convenience (some tea, coffee, sugar, condiments (oil, vinegar etc), herbs and spices). Nearest shops are about a ten minute drive away.

If you prefer to eat out we can direct you to a range of cafes and restaurants to suit every taste and pocket. Most are a ten or twenty minute drive away.

We are on the Wild Atlantic Way, the Beara Way Waking Route, the Ring of Beara, the Beara Cycling Route and near some designated Shore Fishing Points. There are Art Galleries, a Sculpture Garden and a Tibetan Buddhist Retreat Centre within a 30 minute drive. Guided meditation is available at the Dzogchen Beara Centre daily.

The area is famous for its neolithic, megalithic and Bronze Age sites, such as Stone Circles, Ogham Stones, Dolmens, Wedge Tombs, Ring Forts and Souterrains and your host be hired to take you on a guided tour (half or full day) by pre-arrangement. If you prefer to go it alone, Kilcatherine's fifth century Graveyard with its pre-christian 'cat's head' and the famous 'Hag of Beara' are only about 10-15 minutes stroll away.

Lessons in conversational English (as a second language) can also be arranged at any level as your host is a qualified ESOL teacher. Introduction to Irish (Gaelic) is also possible for those interested.

Gjestetilgang
The Cabin and its immediate surroundings is a private space for guests and will not be shared with anyone. Both guests and hosts can use a simple red flag/green flag system to indicate how much social interaction they are/are not open to at any given time. (This works very well!)

Guests can park behind the main house and access the Cabin directly.

There is a small garden area with a raised patio/viewing spot complete with picnic table for the exclusive use of Cabin guests . The table converts to a comfortable bench which can be used to view the stunning starscape on a dark and cloudless night or just watch the moon rise and set over the ocean - we even provide a warm blanket to keep you cosy while star-gazing.

Guests have direct access through a small gate to the shoreline and swimming spot.

There is WiFi internet access (which can occasionally be intermittent depending on the weather - see Other Things to Note below), and we can facilitate you with landline access by pre-arrangement if necessary.

We are happy to do laundry (washing/drying) for guests free of charge, although we encourage a small donation to the RNLI box (Royal National Lifeboat Institution) whose local volunteer crew has saved many lives in this coastal area.

Andre ting det er verdt å merke seg
1) 'Arrival/Survival Supplies' (Tea, coffee, sugar, condiments) are provided to guests on arrival to keep them going until they can shop for supplies. (NB The closest local shop is 9km away and there is no local transport"!) Kindling and wood for the wood-burning stove is provided free of charge and additional fuel in the form of turf briquettes are available for purchase at cost.

2) Guest Pets are welcome, but please see also under House Rules below)

3) WiFi is available. However, it comes from a mast transmitter on a mountain across the bay. Occasionally, in bad weather, (high winds or thick fog) internet access can be intermittent. Basically, if you really need guaranteed constant connectivity, the Cabin is not for you! (On the other hand, it's a good chance to 'go dark' and really enjoy being present in this wonderful place!) Up to each guest to decide.

4) There is a double bed (standard bed with mattress). If you don't wish to share a bed, or if there are three of you, you should note that the other bed is a small double sofa bed, (but pretty comfortable) which is folded out in the living space at night. We have another child-sized bed and a travel cot which can be erected in the bedroom beside the double bed if necessary so that a child/baby can be put to sleep while the parents stay up.

5) Although the location itself is remote and our nearest neighbours are over 1km away, you should be aware that we (your hosts) live just behind the cabin. (Hence the need for our red flag/green flag system!)

However, you have part of the garden (a viewing platform with a bench/picnic table) for your exclusive use, and all the cabin windows face the sea to the west and south, not towards the house. (Look at the aerial picture - the cabin is towards the sea on the right). So it feels quite private.

6) Lessons in English (as a foreign language) are available by arrangement for a reasonable fee. Introduction to Irish/Gaelic may also be available.

7) Hikers on the Beara Way Walking Route please note, we may sometimes be able to provide a drop-off, pick-up service by arrangement for petrol costs .

8) This is Ireland - (in)famous for having four seasons in every day. The weather is very changeable and it is wise to bring good hiking boots, waterproof clothing, and a hat and scarf, even in summer. NB Wearing easily removable layers is the key!

That said, hikers and bikers can rest assured that there are clothes-drying facilities in the cabin and there access to a washing machine on a donation basis. We also have drier for damp articles. (You can borrow from our selection of visitor wellies if things get really muddy!)

9) Although the local swimming spot is very popular and (mostly) safe this is the Atlantic Ocean - it can be treacherous. Always ask locals for advice before you swim. There can be strong currents, underwater rocks or an undertow. Freak waves after storms are not uncommon. We are happy to take you swimming and give you tips on how to stay safe when near the shore.

10) This is a wooden building with a grass roof and we live in the wilds of the countryside - so be prepared for some spiders and other small insects to enter the Cabin at some stage during your stay. (It's unavoidable - a bit like traffic noise in a city!) We feel it's preferable to have a few spiders' webs than the many insects they remove! They do not bite and we have no poisonous insects (or snakes of any kind) in Ireland.
This snug, grass-roofed eco-cabin offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean. Enjoy a warm Irish welcome, mountain walks on the Beara Way or snorkling through nearby reefs. Sample local cheeses, lamb, fish and seafood or stoke up the wood-burning stove, have a glass of wine and and savour the peace and tranquility!

Gortagarriff, Kilcatherine, Eyeries, Beara, County Cork, Irland

The wild and rugged landscape, spectacular, star-studded night sky and beautiful sunsets need to be seen to be believed. West Cork is truly a place apart.

You can sample local delicacies such as Mileens cheese, water buffalo burgers, free-range hen and duck eggs and pork sausages and the nearby town, Castletownbere, is Ireland's biggest white-fishing port.

There are regular music and set-dancing sessions at local pubs and there are art galleries and even a sculpture garden to visit. There is a ferry to Bere Island and Dursey Island, at the tip of the Beara Peninsula boasts Ireland's only Cable Car. But sometimes mooching around and exploring the teeming wildlife on the shoreline and in the rockpools is enough to keep you going.

Your hosts can tell you more and you can look at our visitor's book for ideas on things to see and do.

Chatty, polylingual, intercultural communication trainer who loves to eat! Travel addict. Enjoy swimming, hiking, dogs, kids, beachcombing, flea-markets, playing pool, food foraging, theatre, cooking, movies - there's not much I'm not interested in. As a host I am happy to recommend you interesting stuff to do or, (if I'm free), accompany you for a walk or a swim off the dock nearby. If you prefer to explore on your own, or enjoy the peace and quiet in the hammock with a good book - outdoors if it's sunny or snuggled up in front of the fire if it's stormy - then I'm quite happy to give you plenty of privacy. Live 2km from nearest other house and 10km from nearest settlement on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean in West Cork, Ireland where I beach-comb and forage for wild food obsessively. Very peaceful but it's nice to go somewhere there are other people from time to time. As a guest I don't need any babysitting, very able to entertain myself but like to mingle too. Am very happy to do my own thing if the host needs peace and quiet.

Thanks to a simple system of red flags and green flags both the nearby hosts and the guests can indicate how much interaction they are open to at any given time!
This allows for guests and hosts to get to know one another if they like. Alternatively, guests working on a creative project or who are on a personal retreat may prefer to be afforded total peace and privacy. But if they prefer the hosts can share their wealth of local knowledge and suggestions about things to see and do. It can differ from day to day so the Flag System allows both parties to respect each others peace and privacy - a balancing act appreciated by both sides!

Usually, we are happy to have guests join us when we are walking the dog, swimming, fishing, beach-combing or collecting driftwood for the stove. It's a great way to get to know the area and the locals.

I am an experienced CELTA teacher of English as a foreign language, so can offer English lessons tailored to your needs for an additional fee, or even an introduction to Irish (Gaelic) if requested.

I am also available, by pre-arrangement for half or full-day trips to explore the surrounding Bronze Age sites for which the area is renowned.
