About the property

2 bedrooms., 2 bathrooms., Sauna, Hot Tub

Fuchsia Cottage, located in the heart of West Cork near Bantry and Skibbereen, has been lovingly renovated and offers an ideal base for your activities in the unique and fascinating environment of the Wild Atlantic Way's.

Our concern was with some up to 80 cm thick stone walls to preserve the charm of the nearly 100 years old traditional farm house in the first place and equip with the comfort and ambience of awakened at home feeling a comforting. So we were inspired on the one hand by the wonderful countryside and the omnipresent Atlantic.

The cottage (perfect for 2-4 guests) is about a 10 minutes walk (3 minutes by car) from the centre of Drimoleague. All amenities such as pubs, several shops, a pharmacy and a Centra supermarket you can find there. Fresh baked goods and everything you need for your meals are offered in Centra.

Despite the proximity and belonging to Drimoleague Fuchsia Cottage is surrounded by meadows and hills with a few scattered houses around.

The amazing morning silence is just conducted by the calling of the birds (occasionally seagulls), and sometimes by sounds of the wind in the tree tops.

There are cows, donkeys and horses in the farms nearby, lovely places for kids!

Drimoleague with its Drimoleague Walkways is an ideal starting point for hiking. You will get to several destinations of the Atlantic ocean within about 30 minutes (please see our recommendations), with splendid views, water sports opportunities and much more

After an impressive day you can find in Fuchsia Cottage relaxation at your own convenience.

Behind the house, in a private setting, you invite an outdoor sauna and a hot-tub. Here you will find rest for your body and mind.

Take a rest on a sunlounger, enjoy a coffee or a barbecue! Let the sunset works its magic in the light-flooded annex, where you will find space for playing cards or games, or simply enjoy a glass of wine! (Yes, there are indeed wonderful sunny days in Ireland!)

Fuchsia Cottage – a dream destination for a dream holiday in beautiful Southwest Ireland!

Off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

The Fuschia cottage is a refurbished farm house,with two bedrooms and 2 baths. It is very comfortable and could easily occupy 3 couples. It is fully equipped with all the amenities. We especially liked the sauna and jucuzzi. Grocery down the road, friendly local pubs. The tv had German channels..not much of a selection of English Channels.

The cottage is off the beaten path but very cozy if your looking for a quiet relaxing holiday.

I would recommend going there.we had a fantastic time.

Wunderschöne Oase in der Nähe des Atlantiks

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Ferienhaus ist mit großer Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet und lässt keine Wünsche übrig: Sei es die zauberhaft eingerichteten Zimmer, teilweise mit Kamin ausgestattet oder der wunderschöne Außenbereich mit Sauna und Außenwhirlpool. Wir haben uns sehr willkommen gefühlt und fanden die ruhige Lage sowie die kurzen Wege zum Meer sehr schön. Wir kommen gern wieder.

Wie aus dem Bilderbuch

  • 5 of 5

Gemütlich und mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtet, bis hin zu Whirlpool und Sauna komplett ausgestattet - der Aufenthalt in Fuchsia Cottage hat einfach Spaß gemacht, und bei einem gemütlichen Kaminfeuer ließen sich auch die gelegentlichen Wetterkapriolen bestens aushalten. Das nahe Örtchen Drimoleague hat zwar eher einen rauen Charme, bietet aber Gelegenheit zum Einkauf und zur Einkehr auf ein Pint im Pub sowie einige schöne Wanderwege. Außerdem ist Fuchsia Cottage die perfekte Basis, um Irlands Südwesten zwischen Baltimore und dem Ring of Beara zu erkunden. Nicht verpassen: Eine Einkehr in Glandore.

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns absolut wohlgefühlt, die Einrichtung ist sehr originell und geschmackvoll, mit viel Liebe fürs Detail. Die Ausstattung war bestens, uns hat während des Aufenthalts nichts gefehlt. Die Lage entspricht der Beschreibung, es war angenehm ruhig und dennoch nah an Geschäften und Pubs. Ein traumhaftes Haus für einen romantischen Irlandurlaub!!
