About the property

Modern style apartment

The Loft at Three Castle Head is a modern attractive barn loft conversion which was created in 2011.

The apartment is set on the land of a large Organic Sheep Farm overlooking the rugged Cliffs of the Atlantic on one of Ireland's most South Westerly Peninsulas, with stunning views of Dunlough Bay and the Mizen Head.

The farm on which the apartment is located has one of the most picturesque and popular walks in this part of West Cork, with magnificent 12th Century Castles and a lake situated on the land, - a 10 minute walk from the house.

It is very popular with Bird Watchers, Whale Watchers, Photographers and Hikers. It is within walking distance to the beautiful Barleycove Beach and a 5 minute drive to the little seaside village of Crookhaven. There are many attractions in the area including The Mizen Vision Lighthouse.

The apartment offers a very comfortable living environment combining modern convenience with rural charm. It boasts a large open plan living area and oak floors. The apartment has two bedrooms, one double and the other with two singles or one double depending on guests requirements. There is a bathroom (with a large bathtub, shower and toilet) and also a separate WC.

The outside of the apartment has a private wooden deck overlooking beautifully landscaped gardens, lawns and ponds.

It is an ideal getaway and combined with The Cottage (also situated on the farm) can cater for larger groups.

This was a perfect place to stay for our first visit to Ireland. Our only criticism is that the week went too quickly. Lukas and Joanne have done a super job here. Thank you

This was everything that we could of wished for, stunning views in this beautiful part of remote Southern Ireland.

The loft is finished to a high modern spec and the family made sure we were received and well looked after thank you.

Three Castles and the lake is wonderful, and the Landlords in local area are very friendly we would love to take the family back again so relaxing we've told so many friends and family how great it is.

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This was a reunion of family members for Christmas 2014. We could not have chosen better. The location was unbeatable with wonderful views of the coastline from our Barn, a view which we never tired of. The weather was bracing but absolutely wonderful and walking over the property on Mizen Head just great. The views at the Three Castle ruins was breathtaking with the lighting changing at different times of the day.

The Barn was private, warm, cosy and a joy to come home to after a day out visiting the great villages in the area. Cafes and restaurants with delicious local products made for tasty meals.

Amenities in the Barn were fantastic and our hosts, Joanne and Lukas were helpful, friendly but never intrusive. Yvonne and the dogs gave us a wonderful welcome when we arrived. Thank you Yvonne.

Highly recommended and we would love to return.
