BEAUTIFULLY RESTORED IRISH FARMHOUSE


Hidden away in the rolling green hills of West Cork and surrounded by lovely gardens, Ballycommane House is a charming Irish country home on the Wild Atlantic Way, the perfect place to stay while visiting Mizen Head, Sheep's Head and the Beara peninsula. You'll also find some wonderful sandy beaches close by where you can swim in the summertime.

Ballycommane House is perfect for relaxation. The house has panaoramic views of the Irish landscape and well-tended gardens. From our B&B, you'll see sheep grazing on green pastures, cultivated farms, thick forests and wild-open hills dotted with ancient Irish stone houses. The countryside exudes an enchanting Old World charm.

The hosts are not Irish but they follow the Irish tradition of home-away-from-home culture to provide you a relaxing, enjoyable stay.

Ballycommane House has been tastefully renovated over time to meet modern living standards, but it retains its rustic charm. Our gorgeous landscaped gardens, filled with subtropical vegetation and outdoor seating areas, welcome relaxation and contemplation - a tranquil environment we all need in these chaotic times. The extensive gardens cover three-and-a-half acres and offer an array of colour and an abundance of flowers, mature shrubs and trees. Heated by the warm waters of the Gulf stream, exotic plants from all around the world thrive in our mild climate. Our gardens are open all the time, with benches and outdoor seating areas where you can sit, chill and enjoy the quiet.

On our grounds you will also find an ancient archaeological site of great importance. Dating back to the Bronze Age, it consists of a boulder-burial and a pair of standing stones. Thousands of years ago, these megalithic monuments were important burial places and they were also used for astronomical observations.

We serve breakfast each morning in our comfortable sitting room where our guests can sit and relax by the fireplace, with free coffee and tea making facilities.

We offer four bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms: three with double beds and one twin.

There are many great things to do locally:

* Explore the Wild Atlantic Way (WAW)
* Take a tour through West Cork and Kerry (Mizen, Sheep's Head, Ring of Beara, Ring of Kerry)
* Walk and hike in the area (Sheep's Head Way, Beara Way, Fastnet Trails)
* Visit our stone circles, standing stones and other prehistoric monuments in the area
* Do some whale-watching
* Check out our museums (Bantry House; Skibbereen Heritage Centre featuring the famine commemoration exhibition; West Cork Arts Centre focussing on contemporary visual art; Mizen Head Signal Station presenting Marconi's radio station)
* Enjoy water sports in the summertime
* Go golfing at one of our local courses

Looking for the perfect getaway from the modern world? Ballycomane House is a great place to rest, relax and unwind.
