Complimentary coal is provided for the fire. Oil fired central heating is available. Usage of oil is measured and charged at cost. There is a walkway down to a private pier also part of the property.

From the front of the house looking left is Goleen harbour, straight ahead is Cape Clear and to the right is the Fastnet Rock. Further to the right (south) is the Crookhaven lighthouse and entrance to Crookhaven Harbour and Village.Further south around the corner is Barleycove beach and the Mizen Head. Mizen Head is Ireland’s most south-westerly point.


THE CORK REGION.
Home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland.

Goleen.
Goleen village was built in the nineteenth century at a crossroads where cattle fairs were regularly held. The wide road winds through the village, where all the houses were originally built as shops. To the left of the village is the hidden harbour from which the village takes its name. “Goilin” (little inlet) is easily recognisable once you venture down the lane beside O’Meara’s pub. Although a good portion of the harbour area dries at low tide, giving a great feeding for a variety of wildlife including foxes and pheasants, there is a deepwater quay at the entrance to accommodate fishing boats, pleasure boats and yachts.

Crookhaven.
Crookhaven harbour is as picturesque today as it was useful in its heyday, being a large and sheltered harbour. You pass the old Roadstone Quarry on the side of the mountain, which provided metalling for the roads of Wales until 1939. There are numerous Bronze Age field monuments scattered through the hills surrounding Crookhaven. (The Ordnance Survey Discovery Series map 88 will indicate the whereabouts for you.) The village of Crookhaven has a distinguished history as the last port of call for ships journeying to and from America. Over the centuries ships stocked up with provisions here before tackling the Atlantic Ocean. All the shipping lines had agents located here to tell the ships in which port their cargo had been sold. At the beginning of the 20th century it was said that you could cross the harbour on the decks of the boats moored there. At that time 700 people lived and worked in the village against the 40 permanent residents who reside here today. Marconi came here to try to send his first radio message across the Atlantic and he fitted the first telegraphic equipment to the Fastnet Rock Lighthouse to communicate with the passing ships.

Mizen Head.
The Mizen Peninsula at Ireland’s most south-westerly point is world renowned for the beauty of its rugged landscape and ancient heritage. A tour of the Mizen Ring gives you a chance to immerse yourself in the various strands that make the Mizen unique, from geology, flora, birds and fauna to the influence of man and his history on the landscape. Well worth a visit. Another gem of the Mizen Peninsula is Three Castles Head, where the three castles which are three Tower Houses with curtain walling. Built in the 15th century on the site of a Bronze Age Promontory Fort, the Castles stand sentinel beside a cliff top lake.

Barleycove.
Barleycove is a large sand beach backed by sand dunes. Reputedly the sand dunes were thrown up in the tidal wave which swept Europe after the earthquake in Lisbon in 1755. Today the dunes have been partially eroded but are protected, like much of the coastal land around this area, as European designated “Special Areas of Conservation”. The road goes to the east of the beach across a causeway bisecting Lisagriffin Lakes and at the T junction you turn left for the Mizen.

                      Mizen Head.

                      The property is five miles from Mizen Head, the most south-westerly point in Ireland. In addition to the fog signal station located there, which is open to visitors, you will find a fascinating interpretive centre. Access to the original lighthouse keepers’ dwellings, is over the famous footbridge which spans a sea gorge at a height of 45 metres. Completed in 1909 and rebuilt in 2011, the bridge was the first reinforced concrete bridge in Ireland.

                      Swimming. About 3 miles away you will find the large expanse of Barley cove beach washed by the Atlantic Ocean where the breakers often attract surfers. Other more secluded beaches are also in the area.
