Bay View Cottages are centrally-located in the charming coastal village of Kilcrohane on the Sheep’s Head peninsula in West Cork
Bay View cottages are three adjacent self-catering holiday cottages. Each one can accommodate up to six people, so the cluster of cottages in this lovely village is ideal for walking and diving groups, or any group gathering!
Choose a Cottage with a Sea View
Each property has a master bedroom with a sea view and en suite bathroom. There is also a twin room and a double room in each cottage. There is a family bathroom upstairs and a guest WC downstairs.
There’s a small garden to the rear of each of our Bay View holiday homes, and off-street parking is available. Dogs are welcome (by prior arrangement).
The cottages have an open plan kitchen/dining area. The patio doors open on to a small balcony that overlooks the garden and Dunmanus Bay. French doors lead from the dining area to the living room where there is an open fire. There is also a utility room with a washer and dryer.
Ideal for Group Bookings
The cottages are within walking distance of the sea and Kilcrohane village’s amenities which include two shops, a post office, pubs, a café, and restaurants.
Kilcrohane is located in the heart of the renowned Sheep’s Head Way walking and hiking trail which offer walks for all abilities. There is also a cycling trail encircling the peninsula and bikes can be hired in Kilcrohane village. The village has a children’s playground and community field, open to the public. The local pier is a good place to swim and there are several coves that are perfect for anglers.
Fresh produce and local crafts can be purchased at the Sheep’s Head Producers’ Shop. During July and August, there is a daily café at the Post Office/O’Mahonys (except Sundays).
The restaurants at The Old Creamery, Bay View Inn and Bridge View House are open from April to September, and prior reservations are a must.
Eileen’s Bar has music every Sunday evening year round.
If you’re taking a drive west from the village to the Sheep’s Head Lighthouse, be sure to stop at the White House Gallery and cafe (open all year) and the Alice West Arts Centre. A stop at Bernie’s Cupán Tae at the end of the peninsula is well worth the drive – delicious wild salmon sandwiches and homemade apple pie.
The nearest village to Kilcrohane is Ahakista. Check out Arundel’s Bar for good traditional fare, and be sure to pop into The Tin Pub. The Heron Gallery is located in Ahakista and its café (in a wonderful garden setting) is open for lunch from June to September. The village of Durrus is about 10 miles from Kilcrohane and has a good selection of restaurants and bars. Carraig Abhainn gardens in Durrus are well worth a visit.
