And of course Cork city is within 40 minutes by car or taxi if you fancy some shopping or just the contrast of the city buzz.

Getting around

We’re in a rural location so we advise that you don’t rely too heavily on public transport. That said, there is a bus that services Cork and Ballycotton and it has a stop at the entrance to your driveway – super handy! There are also local cab drivers of course if you decide you want a break from driving and just relax in one of the many restaurants that are within short driving distance (nearest is Ballymaloe – 5 mins, Castlemartyr 10mins, Midleton 15-20 mins and Cork 35 – 40 mins). We have bikes on site if you want to borrow them but if you want to bring your own we have space to store them securely during your stay
