                  Nearby Glandore Harbor is a most scenic harbor where sailing boats large and small set anchor. Hayes Pub, tucked into a hill with the rest of the village, offers outdoor tables and chairs from which you look down at the harbor while sipping a most glorious pint of Guinness, a must while the afternoon drifts into evening. Drombeg circle, an incredible remain from the Bronze Age, is a national monument and literally a two minute drive from the house on the way to Glandore. Kinsale is 40 minutes to the west and Killarney 2 hours to the northeast ( A bird could do it in 30 minutes but winding roads is the price you pay for dramatic landscapes on breathtaking peninsulas like Beara and Dingle). Skibereeen Golf course, a twenty minute drive, offers 18 wonderful holes. The local pitch and putt course on the Warren (our 5 star blue beach) in Rosscarbery is a par 3 course which affords an incredible view of the sea while you fine tune your short game. Clonakilty, a twenty minute drive on the N71 heading east, offers a sensational live music venue at DeBara's Pub. Hill walking, sailing, golf, fishing, horseback riding, are all very accessible and loads of fun. Excellent restaurants that use the finest local produce abound.You can not buy fresher fish anywhere that the local fish shop in Union Hall. The single lane, hair-raising bridge you cross to get into Union Hall was featured in the classic Irish film, War of the Buttons. Rooury Glen, over which the house sits, is your quintessential Irish landscape.
