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!
