Sitting on a promontory jutting into Dunmanus Bay, Blairscove House enjoys a stunning waterside location. Around the courtyard of a Georgian House, beautifully restored with cobbled paths, shrubs and flowers, are the restaurant and four stylish suites or small apartments which can be rented on a B&B or self catering basis. Formerly a piggery, coachhouse and servants quarters each suite is totally individual in style and furnished with a dashing mixture of modern and antique furniture and original art work.
In the grounds but a short distance from the main complex is The Cottage and 9 miles from Blairscove in the direction of Mizen Head is a further house on Dunmanus pier.
The restaurant, on one side of the courtyard quadrangle, used to be the properties stable building. 250 years old it is lofty, stone walled and black beamed with a magnificent chandelier as the central feature.
This beautiful part of West Cork is the perfect holiday destination for the discerning individual traveller. A place not touched by mass tourism it showcases the best of Ireland’s unspoilt beauty. There may not be much nightlife but beautiful walks on the Sheepshead and Mizen peninsulas are more than enough compensation.
Your hosts, Philippe and Sabine De Mey, are looking forward to welcoming you.
