Located in the heart of Tragumna , one of the most picturesque villages in WestCork. (of course I am biased!).The Lookout is a very modern accommodation, it has wonderful views in a quiet peaceful area located along the Wild Atlantic Way, just 5km from Skibbereen. At our B&B you can look forward to a relaxing stay, enjoy the sounds of the ocean crashing against the rocks and beach. The Lookout is close to the Blue Flag Beach, Skibbereen Eagle bar/restaurant and offers breathtaking coastal walks.

The space
The room is located on the ground floor with its own private entrance and private ensuite. The room is bright and clean. The internal door to the rest of the house is locked off. It has a kingsize bed with good quality linen and comfortable mattress. The room also contains a Smart TV, mini fridge ( to hold fresh milk and water), toaster, butter/jam, tea/coffee making facilities, choice of cereals (3) and milk. The ensuite has a large shower, toilet and sink.
Weather permitting there are deck chairs to sit out and have a coffee in the morning, or relax on arrival and enjoy the sunset.

Although I do not provide a full breakfast, there will be a choice of three cereals in the room, fresh milk in the fridge, breakfast biscuits, toaster and bread, tea and coffee.

Location

County Cork, Ireland

Tragumna is an extremely safe and quiet village. Im sure you would feel right at home here.

What to See and Do:

Kayaking: Atlantic Sea Kayaking, Reen Pier & Lough Hyne. Reen Pier is on the way to Union Hall, about a 15 minute drive from the house.
Whale Watching: Colin Barnes runs Cork Whale Watch out of Reen Pier. Nic Slocum runs Whale Watch West Cork out of Baltimore. Both tours are excellent. We suggest Cork Whale Watch as the route Colin takes will give you a whole new perspective on the coastline the house looks out onto. In addition, you will pass the seal colony located on the Stags Rocks (the group of rocks you see around the corner).
Walking from the house: Tralispeen beach: turn left at Trag beach, follow the road for 1km, then take a left at the T-junction and walk 2-3 km.
Towards Castletownshend: Toe Head tower can be reached by taking a right after Tralagoch beach. If you are planning to walk all the way to Castletownshend, be sure to stop at Sandy Cove beach.
Nearby sightseeing: Lough Hyne - a must visit; Rineen woods; Drombeag Stone Circle; Knockdrum Stone Fort; Liss Ard Gardens.
Scenic drives: Crookhaven, Barley Cove & The Mizen Head; Bantry, Glengarriff & the Beara Way; Bantry, Gougane Barra & Kenmare; Clonakilty, Timoleague & Kinsale.
Golfing: Skibbereen Golf Club, 18-hole course. Alternatively, there is a fine 18-hole links pitch and putt course in Rosscarbery. Clubs can be rented at both locations.
Angling: Seaanglingcharters.ie, Reen Pier; Baltimore Angling & Wild Life Tours.
Diving: Baltimore Diving Centre
Other: Fastnet Rock lighthouse tours, fastnettour.com
