The beautiful coastal village of Baltimore is a great base for exploring West Cork & the nearby islands. My home is a warm and friendly space, with a great kitchen, cosy living room & open fire. A fantastic place to relax and unwind! There is also a sunny little garden where you can have breakfast or a glass of wine in the evening. Lots of whales, sharks and dolphins to be seen at times, take a ferry to Sherkin or Cape Clear and swim in Lough Hyne, a nearby salt water lake that I love.

The space

My home is very relaxed and Baltimore is a great place to base yourself for a trip to West Cork. Mizen Head is an easy drive for a day or Sheeps Head Peninsula is another easy day trip. Baltimore itself and the islands of Sherkin, Heir and Cape Clear are great places to down tools and relax, walking, or cycling.
For lake or sea swimming I recommend Lough Hyne, a short drive from my home or there are some lovely coves also to swim in.

Guest access

My guests will have access to my large kitchen (people are welcome to cook and store their food in fridge), a lovely spacious tv room with an open fire in Winter, wi fi, a walled back garden to relax in.
My home is just 2 mins walk from the village of Baltimore, where you can sit and have such a lovely view of the harbour with all its activities.

Interaction with guests

I love to meet new people so will chat to anyone who visits and share my local knowledge of lovely things to do in the surrounding areas, fairy houses in Rineen woods, Coastal drive from Tragumna to Castletownshend, night swimming or night kayaking in nearby Lough Hyne, fabulous places to stop and eat or have coffee - just ask me! I will also respect people's privacy if you just feel like some quiet time.

I am a very easy going person. I would like people to make themselves at home in my house, but also to respect the space as I do when I stay in other people's homes.

We loved our weekend stay in Susan's house. Her home is so beautifully decorated& our room was really comfortable. Susan was very friendly and hospitable and left us a fabulous spread for breakfast on both mornings including delicious homemade jams! Would definitely recommend!

Everything we could have wanted! Clean house, wonderful bed, good breakfast! And Susan is just delightful as a host. She made us feel like we were at a home-away-from-home. We selected this location to be near Lough Hyne. Susan took us down to wade in it after dark. What a memorable experience. She was so open to interaction, but willing to leave us on our own as desired. Highly recommend.

Polite and easy to deal with, contacted us to confirm our plans and had someone there to meet us. Nice house. Clean room. Everything in Baltimore walkable. Good spot.

Susan's house was really nice and was so close to everything in Baltimore. She left us out a lovely breakfast and was great at communicating when it came to our check in. Would definitely stay here again.

I love to travel whenever I get the opportunity and love meeting new people and experiencing new cultures. I have been to many places including Africa (One of my most magical travel experiences was to a music Festival in Mali - Festival au Desert Timbouktu!), Asia, Australia, New Zealand, U.S. Iceland. I have many more destinations I'd love to visit and plan to continue using Airbnb when I'm travelling. When I'm hosting I'm happy to share my beautiful home with fellow travellers - it feels like I'm travelling without even leaving my home!!
