Description from owner

Description

Peace, tranquility and solitude sum up the feel of this charming and traditional Irish island cottage.

Ideal as a romantic hideaway for two, a family holiday home or a stylish getaway for friends...you will never want to leave.

The Old Fisherman's Cottage has been our family home for many generations and has recently been renovated making it the perfect island home.

Located in the sleepy village of Dugort the cottage is set between two beautiful beaches and backs right on to the Atlantic Ocean. A truly rare and stunning setting.

Refurbished by local craftsmen with white walls, wooden floors and wonderfully furnished. The interior is stylish and elegant; a stove warms the living room with its welcoming glow and personally commissioned portraits, paintings and bespoke art pieces decorate the rooms.

The views from the kitchen, dining room, master bedroom and bathroom are simply stunning...The Atlantic Ocean. Sometimes like a calm glass lake and others an angry tempest, it is forever changing. Guests find themselves enchanted by the ocean views.

And if you're lucky you will see playful dolphins flipping about, performing just for you.

You will find a well positioned bench at the bottom of the garden, closest to the sea, the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of tea or glass of wine in the evening (although you may need a warm sweater)!

Or why not fill up the picnic hamper with goodies and stroll down to the beach for a perfect afternoon on the sand.

Back at the cottage you'll always be lovely and warm, if you don't wish to light the fire we have full central heating and it's triple glazed throughout.

You will have the whole cottage and grounds for your own personal use (you'll usually have the whole beach to yourself too).
