Dunworley is on the breathtaking Seven Heads Peninsula, part of the Wild Atlantic Way route.
A sandy tidal beach lies just a moment's walk away and offers a tranquil swim, a rugged coastline climb, or just a wander around the beach.
The walks along our headland are absolutely incredible, with a 17th century watch tower, a secluded cove and a salt tower among it's delights.
The surrounding countryside is dotted with small colourful towns and villages, which provide a range of food from irish pub grub to high restaurant quality standard.
Clonakilty, the home of Michael Collins, is just seven miles from the cottage and has a wide variety of delicious restaurants and, in particular, a traditional Irish pub where many renowned bands play, De Barra's.
There is also the spoiling Incheydoney Spa with an indoor sea water pool and a thalassic health spa.
Bandon and Lisselan offer great golf clubs - Bandon (18 holes) and Lisselan (six holes).
Bandon also offers fishing on the sea trout and salmon river, day passes are available.
Kilcoleman fishery is well worth the day.
You can follow the Wild Atlantic Way from Dunworley to Kinsale for a stunning drive.
Be it during the day for some sightseeing (from 17th century forts to rugged walks along the headlands Kinsale is a haven for tourists) or by night for an uplifting irish experience, lively pubs host some excellent bands.
Courtmacsherry is another beautiful harbour town, just 5 miles away and has sailing, riding, sea fishing, and windsurfing facilities along the beautiful strand.

About the owner: I own a small holding in West Cork which I farm organically. I have two cottages on the land which I rent out.
Why the Owner Chose County Cork, Ireland:
Dunworley is somewhere that we used to visit a lot, being the most beautiful beach in Ireland! The property used to be the famous organic restaurant, Dunworley Cottage Restaurant, where we we would often eat. When it came on the market we fell in love and moved here with our family to start out own organic small holding. We couldn't resist having the most breathtaking vistas on our doorstep!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
You can have a delicious gourmet dinner cooked by a professional chef. Incomparable walks on the Seven Heads Peninsula (on the Wild Atlantic Way) with incredible views.
