Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I live and work in London but I know and love Ireland from my childhood. It has always been a special place for me and I am glad to still have this house to make this connection with the country strong.

Why the Owner Chose Rusheenaniska, Co. Cork, Ireland:
This was my grandmothers house and it is very dear to me, I am renting it so that it stays in the family. I hope that it brings as much joy to you as much as it does me.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The magnificent thing about this house is you feel completely closed of from the world and totally at piece, however you are mere metres from the lively little town of Durrus. It is very comfortable and has a warm feel to it and there are plenty of great bars nearby so if you fancy ducking out of the quiet life it is easily done!
