Enjoy spectacular water views from every room of this stylish cottage on the Wild Atlantic Way. Set in its own private grounds, The Bay House is just a short stroll from the delightful Clonakilty town with its many bars, cafes, restaurants and boutiques and the stunning Blue Flag Inchydoney Beach, with its own surf school. This beautifully restored 19th century cottage, surrounded by fields of horses, is the perfect spot to relax and explore the magic of West Cork.
The house boasts five spacious bedrooms (three ensuite). The main kingsize bedroom enjoys a private balcony overlooking Clonakilty Bay and ensuite with shower and bath. There are three other double bedrooms (two ensuite), one triple aspect and one ground floor ensuite. The fifth bedroom has children-only bunk beds – but even they get a sea view!
There are two reception rooms, one with double-sided log burner and the other with floor to ceiling windows to take in the view. The bay is a haven for wildfowl, so enjoy birdwatching from the comfort of your own sofa.
Warm underfloor heating throughout downstairs, radiators upstairs, and that atmospheric log burner to keep things cosy when the weather turns chilly.
There is a double height gallery dining area, a spacious well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, utility and downstairs cloakroom. Washing machine, tumble dryer, dishwasher, American-style fridge-freezer, double oven and coffee machine.
Outside is a generous patio area with large table and chairs for dining alfresco and an expansive lawn with swing and hammock. (NB: We recommend young children are supervised in the grounds).
Clonakilty town, one of Ireland's top tourist spots, is just a mile away with its colourful shop fronts, world-famous bars, live music, cafes, restaurants and boutiques.
Inchydoney Beach (voted Ireland's Best Beach 2019 by TripAdvisor users for the fifth year running) is a five minute drive, or twenty minute walk, with its own surf school where the whole family can take up the sport. Recently featured in Lonely Planet's world's best winter beaches 2020.
And why not try horse riding at the Equestrian Centre which caters for beginners to experienced riders. Several golf courses, water sports centres, fishing and a cinema nearby too.
Clonakilty has its own Rent A Bike scheme and the children will love the Model Railway with its Choo Choo land train to take them around the town and to the beach. You won't run out of things to do in any weather!

The Bay House, West Cork, Clonakilty: Please share your stay experience
"Getaway in West Cork!" can't recommend highly enough. The house itself has been beautifully restored and offers all mod cons. Lovely surrounding grounds too. We plan to book again next year!
Love this place. Spotlessly clean and it has everything you need for a staycation. It’s a lovely 25 minute walk to Inchydoney beach where you can take surfing lessons and a 15 minute walk into clonakilty for some shopping and eating. Even in poor weather we went surfing and then came back and had drinks by the fire. Or we went sight seeing or had afternoon tea at the Dunmore hotel. Fish and chips at the Chunky chip is a must as is a Chinese take away from the Sea Palace. We will be back!
