Skibbereen Travel Tips

Getting Away from the City with Skibbereen Vacation Rentals'

A thirty minute drive from Baltimore, Ireland brings you to the capital of West Cork, Skibbereen. The village on the coast of the North Atlantic is a cozy, quiet village with at least three nearby Cork house rentals that will give you a real getaway in the scenic countryside. Unlike a hotel, vacation rentals in Skibbereen allow travelers to enjoy the comforts of a real house. Some of the Cork house rentals in the area offer things you'll never see in a hotel, such as authentic fireplaces and, of course, kitchens stocked with everything needed to cook a meal. Skibbereen vacation rentals really allow you to relax in an authentic country home.

The Advantages of a Cork House Rental

Vacation rentals are many times cheaper than hotel rooms. Instead of a hotel, with the problems of check-in, and the schlepping of baggage up to rooms, and the bother of finding a restaurant, a vacation rental is a whole house. Everything is pre-arranged before arrival, so you can pull your car right up to the residence and step into your getaway, all without the inconvenience of noisy people in an adjoining room, or the alien feel of a sterile hotel room. With a house rental in Cork County, you're a guest in someone's home - but the host isn't home, either. Just you. It's also cheaper, since you can travel with a party, and split the costs.

What to Do in Skibbereen

A Skibbereen accommodation gives you access to the countryside, the scenic attractions of West Cork, such as historic castles, and put you right on the rocky, scenic coast. There is an active music scene in town, with clubs like Chasers and the Dakota hosting live music. Skibbereen is also the location of the Abbeystrewery cemetary, where up to 10,000 people are housed in one of the country's largest famine pits from the Great Famine.
