Homely four bedroom cottage overlooking the beautiful Dunmanus Bay. A destination for all seasons - cuddle up beside an open fire in winter, or in fairer weather enjoy award winning scenic walking routes the length of the peninsula.

The space

Rosskerrig Holiday House is set in the idyllic surrounds of West Cork, on the Sheep’s Head Peninsula overlooking the beautiful Dunmanus Bay, between Ahakista and Kilcrohane villages. The charming house has a south facing aspect which allows for the best views of the picturesque countryside, across Dunmanus Bay to the Mizen Peninsula.

The property includes three double rooms, two of which are ensuite, and a twin room. The property has central heating, as well an open fire (lovely for those brisk winters nights!) in the spacious living room, and a separate large kitchen / dining room with all mod-cons.

The house comes equipped with washing machine and dryer, and iron should you have any laundry you need to clean.

Keep an eye out for the bunny rabbits that may stop by, and keep an eye out for Dolphins on the bay!

The house is extremely spacious and very comfortable, with the most wonderful view of Dunmanus Bay and the headlands. We were fortunate to have a week of wonderful blue skies allowing us to explore The Sheep's Head Walk and the surrounding areas of Bantry and Glencarriff and even Barley Lake! The house was very well equipped with everything you could think of. The communication before and afterwards was excellent. I would highly recommend this house as a place to stay and look forward to returning in the near future.

Beautiful house in a beautiful location. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect house! Easy drive to Bantry, easy drive to Schull and Skibbereen too! All whilst being a nice long walk to Ahakista and a quick scoot in the car to Kilcrohane! The Cows outside were super friendly, the house is absolutely stunning & ready to cater to all! We will definitely be back! Thank you for such a lovely time! The Copeland Family

We had a family get together at this house and it was perfect. The kids loved the rabbits running wild around the house and the lovely garden. We were all transfixed by the stunning views. The host was so welcoming and helpful and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend.

Mary and Fiona's place is great. A big house, clean and an amazing view. We really loved the place. And Fiona pointed to us some nice spots to have dinner. We stayed for a small week but could stay longer. Beautiful surrounding!

There are not enough good things to say about this listing. The property is in a perfect location for viewing the bay and ocean. They have thought of every amenity and provide a top-notch level of comfort. There are many walking trails around the area on the Sheepshead peninsula. Some driving is required to get into Bantry. There is a very nice movie theater there as well as many shops (grocery, shoes, clothing, photo, Irish wares, etc.) We will be back.
