Traditional stone cottage in the heart of Ballydehob. Over 100 years old it was the village shoemakers workshop and home. It has been extended and developed but still maintains its character and charm through careful conservation and decoration.

This place has a beautiful garden and beautiful (and well-equipped) rooms. There was an issue where there wasn't any wifi, but the host was kind enough to recommend some places in the nearby vicinity which had internet.

Response from Jane:
Hi Caitlin, thank you for your review and leaving the house in such a clean state. With respect to wifi, since the house is a holiday home, I have not installed wifi on a permanent basis. I do note in the house listing that wifi can be provided but it must be requested. If I had know prior to you stay I would have provide it via a portable wifi hot spot. Thanks again. John.

Great property in the perfect location in Ballydehob. Walking distance to everything we needed with the garage right across the road. Lots of character to this property which we loved and the host was always on hand if needed. Would definitely stay here again!

The location is fantastic with a really nice selection of bars and restaurants within walking distance in Ballydehob. Good amenities. Very cosy quaint old cottage with beautiful outdoor space. Great value for the accommodation.

Shoemakers is a really cute cottage - you could fit lots of people in there but I was equally happy on my own. Very handy village location, comfy beds and warm atmosphere
