Ocean’s End sits snuggly between the light houses of the Old Head of Kinsale to the east and the Galley Head to the west, making it the ideal base to explore the unadulterated splendour of the West Cork coastline and its myriad of sandy swimming beaches.
The cottage was recently fully refurbished from its modest beginnings as a family farmhouse dating back over 200 years. Original thick walls and intimate low ceilings are a subtle reminder of the earlier cottage. The old blends seamlessly with the modern stylish interior, cottage-styled with a home-makers detailing and skill combined with exquisite craftsmanship throughout. 
Downstairs has an open plan living space where a contemporary galley style kitchen leads to a comfy lounge with a welcoming wood burning stove and a sumptuous shabby-chic sofa. From here one can choose to dine in the light filled south facing sunroom or opt for al fresco dining on the adjacent paved terrace via a panoramic sliding patio door. Across the hall is a cosy living room with another wood burning stove and a generous corner sofa for relaxing after an enjoyable day spent immersed in the surrounding countryside. The rear of the ground floor has a boot room with guest WC, utility room with a Sheila maid clothes dryer and a shower specially for those sandy toes!  
Upstairs has two generous double bedrooms both ensuite, two single bedrooms and a family bathroom. Enjoy a relaxing soak in the bath while taking in the uninterrupted views of rolling pastureland leading onwards to the Atlantic Ocean. 
Outside the house is surrounded by a private garden with a wonderful outdoor seating area boasting a log burning fire and a sheltered garden room with a charcoal BBQ and pizza oven. There is plenty of private and safe car parking space.     
As the cottage is located adjacent to a national milk quality award winning farm, early morning milking excursions can be arranged, affording you a wonderful opportunity to deeply connect with nature and immerse yourself in the best of what West Cork farm life has to offer. Your reward - a bottle of fresh creamy milk straight from the cow to enjoy with a well-earned breakfast. Don’t forget to pack your wellingtons!

What’s on offer in the area:

The nearest grocery shopping is the Eurospar supermarket in Barryroe, less than 10 minutes away by car. Here you will find everything you need for your stay. The busy market town of Clonakilty is a 20-minute drive away. Known for its charm and friendliness as well as its historic people and buildings, not forgetting of course its famous blackpudding, this town has much to offer its visitors from quirky shops and cafes to live music sessions in the many local pubs.
Seven Heads walk, over 42km of interesting and varied territory with breath-taking and rugged scenery around the peninsula, incorporating historical sites, sandy beaches, extensive rich farmland, and abundant bird life. This trial is great for birding, hiking, and running, such is the seclusion of this area, it is unlikely you will encounter many others while exploring.
Divided up into utterly enjoyable strolls and hikes strategically finishing at local eateries and small cosy pubs to relax and regale your day. Or bring your own picnic filled with local artisan produce from the nearby markets and immerse your senses in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes as you soak up the unique beauty of your surrounds.
The rocky coastline reveals a plethora of hidden coves and sandy beaches just waiting to be explored. Dunworley, 2km away, is a real local gem, perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and kayaking and a surfer’s dream when the southwesterly winds whip up impressive swells. Children will love exploring the many rock pools filling their buckets with a myriad of marine life. Blindstrand and Broadstrand beaches, both hidden secrets and a short 10 mins drive from the cottage, offer safe wild water swimming all year round. The beautiful Blue Flag beach at Inchydoney Island, about half an hour from the cottage, is family friendly and very popular amongst surfers.
The picturesque fishing village of Courtmacsherry in a short 5km trip along the meandering coastal route. This village comes alive during the summer months and visitors will be spoilt for nautical adventures from sea angling and inshore fishing, (courtmacsherryangling.ie), to whale and dolphin watching tours, (atlanticwhaleandwildlifetours.com), as well as an array of water sports and skills courses, (geckoadventures.ie).
