Situated within the grounds of Barnabrow Country House in 35 acres of rolling parkland these pretty self-catering cottages can avail of the excellent restaurant at the house, open by reservation at weekends. Ballycotton is only 10 minutes from the lovely Blue Flag Beach at Garryvoe, ideal for swimming with a stunning cliff walk with views to the Lighthouse. Fota Island Wildlife Park is only 40 minutes away and is a great day out for all the family.
The detached holiday homes have an open plan kitchen / dining / living area with wooden beams, open fire and French doors on to a patio area, two double bedrooms (one of which has a four poster bed and is en suite), a twin and a family bathroom.
Ballymaloe house and cookery school is just 7 km from Barnabrow, and is lovely for a visit for lunch, or to the shop selling their locally made products. Like many places in Cork, Ballycotton has a strong maritime history, and is currently the home of the Royal National Lifeboat and there is a 19th century lighthouse just off the coast on Ballycotton Island which you can enjoy along the cliff walk at the beach. The area is well know as a great spot for fishing with a number of approved deep sea charters operating from the harbour.
Ballycotton to Cork Airport – 45Km
Ballycotton to Waterford City – 104Km
We enjoyed the week in the Barnabrow Cottage, which was spacious and well laid-out;the washing, drying and dish-washing machines were an unexpected bonus. The cottages were well separated from each other with nice grass surrounds and the administrative staff were pleasant and helpful. On the down side, the lighting in the cottage was poor for reading in the evenings; the large rubbish bins on site were overflowing with rubbish with no attention to the green and black bins; there were no razor sockets in the cottage. Overall, a pleasant and enjoyable week resulting in a high level of family harmony.
