Property Details

* Cot and high chair available ON REQUEST (only one of each available).

* Free WiFi available.

Skibbereen has a multitude of restaurants and pubs to choose from, as well as shops, a sports centre and an arts centre. There is plenty of nightlife to keep you entertained, including traditional bars with traditional music - both impromptu sessions and booked famous names.

There is much to keep holidaymakers entranced for a week or two:

* walking, and in particular the Knockonagh Forest walk (a couple of miles from Skibbereen), from which you can admire the beautiful Lough Hyne, Europe's largest sea-water lake and Ireland's first marine nature reserve. The lake has an incredible array of marine life, much of which is found only in Mediterranean waters: the lough - for reasons yet undiscovered - is some 3 degrees C warmer than the sea. You can learn more from a visit to the Lough Hyne Interpretative Centre at Skibbereen Heritage Centre.

* enjoying the scenery. As well as that already mentioned, there is much to see: beautiful countryside, sandy beaches, secluded coves, fast-flowing rivers, lakes, hills and forests. Enjoy it all by foot, bicycle or car.

* visiting surrounding fishing villages, Sherkin Island and Cape Clear. Glandore on one side of the estuary and Union Hall on the other are both quaint, with great pubs and restaurants, many with sea views by which to enjoy a meal or drink.

* learning about the history of the famine at Abbetstrewery, where some 10,000 victims of the Irish Famine are thought to be buried. An unimaginable 1.5 million Irish people died, avoidably, in the famine in 1846 and 1847. (The Famine Trail starts at Skibbereen Town Square - follow numbered plaques.) And conversely ...

* eating. Cork lives up to is title of 'gourmet capital of Ireland', and you won't have to travel far to find a great choice of restaurants that serve a wide range of food, including traditional Irish flavours.* marvelling at two of the most breathtaking gardens of West Cork: Lissard is 40 acres of woodlands, wildflower meadows and lakes, created and maintained in order to educate visitors on the beauty, philosophy and intricacies of Irish nature. Creagh Gardens is 20 acres of landscaped grounds, which slope down to a sea-estuary; it has woodland glades, a millpond with many tender and rare plants, and a traditional walled and organic kitchen garden with domestic fowl.

* indulging in some of the many leisure facilities, including an 18-hole golf course; fishing for salmon and sea-trout, or coarse fishing in the lakes of Shepperton, surrounded by glorious and peaceful countryside.

* being more energetic by playing (at Skibbereen sports centre) tennis, badminton, indoor bowls, soccer, table-tennis, or racquetball - and then relaxing in the sauna. Scuba diving,
sailing and watersports are available at Baltimore.

If you enjoy festivals, there are plenty to take your pick from here:

* The Welcome Home Festival is held at the end of July/ beginning of August. For over 30 years the festival has ""welcomed home"" emigrants from Skibbereen. This is a week of fun, music, street theatre and exhibitions; there is also a grand festival parade.

* Skibbereen's Ilen Street Vintage Day Festival is held on Ireland's October Bank Holiday Weekend (the last weekend in October). This is a celebration of Skibbereen in bygone days. Everyone is encouraged to dress in old-fashioned clothes and there are events such as butter making and wheat threshing. Music is a big part of the weekend, and non-veggies will enjoy the roasting of a whole pig. A highlight is the pig race, which takes place in Ilen Street.

* ""Scribble in Skibb"" - the Skibbereen Cartoon Festival - has been going for four years. It takes place in the West Cork Arts Centre and in many pubs in town during November, and attracts cartoonists from all over the world.
