  • Great location for a trip to Killarney

    "Very comfortable house in a really good location if you are wanting easy access to Killarney town and the National Park look no further. House is very well equipped and the welcome from John and the groceries and wine were a really nice touch. Point to note is that the pictures show what is actually 2 semi detached houses...the garden is however not separated so for families with young children, as we were, this maybe a consideration. Perhaps for privacy and security (specifically young children) the garden could be partitioned? Overall an excellent property in a great location. Mark, Marie, Evie and Loretta (Leeds, England)"

  • Remarkable and memorable experience

    "We took my 82 year old mother on her second trip to Ireland (her first was 40 years ago) and the highlight of our trip was our week long stay in this wonderful house where we enjoyed quiet and gorgeous views the whole day long. There is lots of room and lots of comfort, and a kitchen that was fully appointed and a pleasure to use. We are both architects and my brother is a graphic designer and we all appreciated the intelligent use of Irish Arts and Crafts, both new and old, for the interiors. The owners were extremely helpful, not only with their instructions and advice, but also for arranging to have the house open and ready for us when we arrived. In less than a day we felt at home and well cared for. This house is an ideal choice. Thank you so much."

County Cork Travel Tips

Visit Cork County Vacation Rentals on the Emerald Isle

Cork County, in the southwest of the Emerald Isle of Ireland is an area of rich green countryside, scattered with farms, rivers and windswept sandstone hills. To arrive at your Cork accommodation, fly to Ireland’s capital city of Dublin and either choose a hire car or internal flight to Cork airport. It’s rich green lands and stunning wild coastline with bays, hidden coves and rocky headlands make this area a wonderful land to explore. The weather is mild and changeable and it is best to be prepared for rain. Cork’s nickname, "the Rebel County," refers to its history as being the seat of many rebellions, dating back to 1491.

An Ancient City With a Vibrant Modern Culture

The main city here is the ancient city of Cork which traces its history back to a monastic settlement founded in the 6th century. The remnants of the old city wall and some of the original gates still remain. It is the third largest city in Ireland, after Belfast and Dublin. The River Lee runs through the city via two channels so there are many bridges to cross while exploring. While wandering this beautiful old hilly city, it is worth noting the high gateways from the street level. This is from the days when the houses were once boathouses where the merchants would bring goods by river. It is a small, compact city, ideal for walking or seeing by bike. Many companies offer rental bikes. There is also an excellent golf course just three miles from the city center. For families with children, visit Chuckies Playzone or the fascinating Cork City Goal, where the preserved prison is filled with full-sized wax figures featuring famous "rogues" from Ireland’s history. It was here that many thousands of the country's "undesirables" were held before being transported to America and Australia. Children will also enjoy a visit to Foto Wildlife Park to see the many animals such as cheetahs, penguins and wallabies.

Kiss the Blarney Stone at the Famous Castle

This is a county to explore and getting out and about from Cork vacation rentals will be a new adventure each day. Along the coast, there are charming typically Irish villages, with wonderful pubs and fabulous coast paths to explore and enjoy. The quaint village of Baltimore, on the southwest coast, is famous for its stunning scenery. The village features the remains of a 17th-century castle. At Desmond Castle, visitors will enjoy the unique International Museum of Wine. Head to Clonakilty to discover a lively musical and arts community and enjoy the model railway village, depicting the area's many attractions as scale models. Take a cable car over to Dursey Island as this is the only method on and off this uninhabited island.

The most internationally renowned place in Cork is Blarney, with its famous Castle. The tradition for visitors here is to kiss the Blarney Stone. The Castle dates from 1446 and is one of Ireland’s most important historical sites. To kiss the stone, visitors must first climb 110 steps to the spiral staircase at the top of the castle, and then hang backwards over the battlements to reach the stone! It is a challenge, "to be sure" as they say in Ireland, but well worth the effort.

200-Year-Old Cork Cottages, Private Beaches, Pools, and Much More

Cork cottages come in a wide variety of sizes yet all have one thing in common. That is the excellent standard of care taken by owners to ensure that their homes are perfect for visitors. Visitors may choose a coastal location, overlooking their own private beach, or a home with a pool, Jacuzzi, BBQ, and a host of other features. Whether you are looking for a 200-year-old cottage or a large family home, you will find the perfect property here.
