This property is in a secluded, private, rural setting on a spectacular headland, at mouth of Glandore Harbour. There are stunning views on all sides.
The house is open plan with a living room, kitchen, dining area, utility, WC and en suite master bedroom on the ground floor. Two further en suite bedrooms and a viewing balcony are on the upper floor. The closest villages are Glandore and Union Hall, where sea sports dominate the harbour. Fishing, sailing, wind surfing and superb seafood restaurants can be found here. Beautiful sandy beaches are close by, i.e. The Warren, Owenahincha. The closest local beach is a nice walk to Tralong just past Drombeg Stone Circle.
The local village of Glandore has a place in the hearts of visitors and local people alike. Although little more than one street, the village is acclaimed as one of the prettiest in Ireland. It is a favourite amongst the boating and sailing fraternity in summer. Its position in the path of the Gulf Stream ensures a mild climate all year round. Due to the location, plants can be found in bloom here even if they are out of season elsewhere. Glandore is one of the most sought after property locations in Ireland, with many Celebrities and Millionaires having homes in the area - mostly tempted by the sailing, golf and scenery

Further details outdoors:
The house is surrounded by fields of grass, gorse and heather. It is located on the headland at the mouth of Glandore Harbour. As you approach the house you can see as far as the Fastnet rock and Galley Head light house.
Close by the house you can walk to a derelict vishing village and realise that this was once a densely populated area with its own school before the famine. The views a short distance from the house are spectacular....Read more

I stayed here with a group of my friends for a week. The weather was exceptional for the Firist five days, and rained for the last two of our trip...Thankfully the house had under floor heating and was so cozy we barely wanted to leave the house! It was bright, clean and modern with loads of room for everyone. It was a short and scenic drive from the house to the beautiful village of Glandore. I will definitely be back to west cork and stay here again.

To Say that we were diappointed with our stay would be an understatement,when we arrived on a cold and very wet sat the house was cold and damp,the person who met us with the keys had no idea how to turn on the heating and left it to my husband to figure it out,he eventually go it on but took a good 2 days before the house was warm,the Location is very very remote as we spent 2 days here with no car and could not get anywhere ,the house while spacious was not very clean there was dust everywhere including in the pots and pans in the cupboard,not a very good floor plan as the main bedroom with ensuite is downstairs so not practical at all if you have small children,stairs was a death Trap and should have a gate on it,sorry we could not say anything good about our stay here,and has taught me to go and visit a house before I pay a deposit,
