This is a beautiful house in a lovely spot. We really enjoyed our time here and were very sad to leave. We found it a great base to explore West Cork and the house is really convenient for both Clonakilty and the beach. Very special and would highly recommend.

We stayed at The Bay House for New Year and had the most magical time. It was perfect to be able to get together with our extended family and being by the sea was a dream. We enjoyed a fabulous lamb feast on the eve, which we bought in Scully's, one of the many butchers in the town (he even threw in a bag of free sausages for the children!) New Year's Day was wet and windy, but we still managed a lovely walk with the children to see in the New Year. They loved all the horses. Then it was back to the beautiful house, adults enjoying a hot toddy by the fire while the children played a few board games. The next day the sun came out and Grandpa organised a treasure hunt on the beach for the little ones. We spent our days walking into lovely Clonakilty to our favourite cafes - Aris and Fig and Olive and a few nights out in Scannells - I thoroughly recommend this pub although there are LOADS to choose from! If you don't fancy cooking, there are lots of restaurants or places to get takeaways - the Thai Baan Sujittra is just amazing. It was so lovely to start the New Year with all of us together - three generations. The house is really spacious, with lots of ensuites, and you can't beat waking up to that view. I could go on and on...The best New Year's ever! Thank you!

The Bay House is a fantastic place to stay and a great base for a holiday adventure in West Cork. The house itself is fantastic, with a location and views to match. We stayed there as two families and there was ample room for both shared time and privacy. Clonakilty is within walking distance of the house, an excellent small town which is clean and friendly, with great little bars and shops. Proximity to Inchydoney beach is a real advantage In the surrounding area, Baltimore, Glandore and Union Hall are all places worth a visit. See you soon in West Cork.
