Ballycommane House & Garden – a charming Irish country home on the Wild Atlantic Way. Tucked away in the green rolling hills of West Cork and surrounded by mature gardens, Ballycommane House is most inviting for relaxation. The sweeping views from the house and its well-tended gardens present the Irish landscape like in a nutshell: sheep grazing on green pastures, cultivated farmland, dense forests and wild open hills. Dotted with old Irish stone houses, the surrounding countryside exudes an intriguing Old World charm. Located on the famous Wild Atlantic Way, this accomodation is the ideal base for touring or walking Mizen Head, the Sheep’s Head and Beara peninsula. There are lovely sandy beaches nearby, most inviting for a swim during the summertime.
