Family-friendly holiday home in Castletownbere
Our house is called Domhain Eile - Gaelic for 'another world' and that's just what this is!

( Note : Minimum rental period is one week . )

PANORAMIC VIEWS - The house is bright and spacious with beautiful contemporary styling throughout. Domhain Eile enjoys spectacular views of Bere Island and it's lighthouse, the Atlantic and Bantry Bay. N.B. Please review the photographs provided to see the breathtaking views and sheer beauty of this location.

HIGH SATISFACTION RATINGS - We invite you to read the reviews of previous very happy guests. Domhain Eile is a stunning house and location for your holiday but don't just take our word for it!

The local area: The rugged and unspoiled Beara Penninsula in South West Cork is often described as one of the most untamed and beautiful parts of Ireland. Domhain Eile provides an opportunity to experience this lovely part of Ireland . This is a fantastic house with superb facilities , stunning views and in a unique and special part of Ireland .

The house is 1.5 miles from the fishing port of Castletownbere (well served with supermarket, restaurants and pubs) and is on the famous Beara Walking and Cycling Trail. There are good restaurants in Castletownbere serving a selection of fresh local fish with a varied menu. A bit further away in Glengarriff there are several restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual bar food. Kenmare is famous for it's gastronomic delights and is teeming with superb restaurants.

Local life: Although it is a small town, Castletownbere is the largest white fish port in Ireland and is a bustling working town.

Golfing: There are three golf course's in the immediate area (caveat - the author is not herself a golfer!) There is Bantry Bay Golf Club which is open to visitors and is a Christy O'Connor Junior designed course and I am told there are stunning views across the bay at many of the holes. There is another golf course at Glengarriff which is a 9 hole park land course with terrific views across Glengarrif Harbour. There is a links course in Castletownbere itself and at least 2 other courses within 20 km of Glengarriff. Enjoy your golf!

Capacity: Although Domhain Eile has capacity for up to 9 persons so the house could suit two families. There is comfy seating throughout the house to include an example of the Beara Chair and footstool which can be used outside if the weather permits. This is a great house for children - they will love exploring it and will have lots of room to play indoors and outdoors ( toys, books and board games are included).
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers fireplaces and DVD players. Rooms open to patios. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and separate dining areas.

Bathrooms include a combined bath/shower unit and hairdryers. Guests can surf the web using complimentary wireless Internet access. Additionally, rooms include coffee/tea makers and an iron/ironing board.

Memorable Summer Holiday
Stayed for 2 glorious weeks. Couldn’t have been happier with the house. The minute we turned into the drive that creeped down to a breathtaking view, we knew our time at Domhain Eile would be memorable. The house was spotless with everything needed for a great summer holiday. We are keen cooks and the kitchen came equipped with everything needed, also a great big table for family board games.The bedrooms were big with views from each room. Plenty of extra towels and sheets for a 2 week stay. Great WiFi for the teenagers. Castletownbere is a wonderful location , with access to lots of activities. We enjoyed them all-swimming, pier jumping, scuba diving, kayaking, horse riding, hiking, cable car to Dursey Island, Allihies beach. Star adventure centre. Bantry Boat Charters, all So easy to get to from Domhain Eile. We hope to return again in the future.

Great location for exploring
Great location for exploring Bere peninsula. Lovely view. Very well equipped house with lots of space for everyone to relax. Comfy beds! Only downside - WiFi was a bit hit and miss and you need to look after your own garbage disposal

Beautiful house, amazing views!!

4/5 Good

Wonderful view
Wonderful house with fabulous view. Beara is quiet relative to other peninsulas on the west coast. A hidden gem with stunning scenery. Terrific for walking, and eating out is great value, when you can get a lobster dinner for €20. Will definitely return.

4/5 Good

Lovely quiet spot
This is a lovely, well-equipped house in, it feels like, the middle of nowhere. A great place for our family reunion. The views are to die for! And there is a prehistoric standing stone in the garden too. Thanks for a fantastic holiday.

Beautiful Home and Views
This home is lovely and spacious and the setting is just beautiful Nearest town Castletownbeare has everything you need The entire peninsula is breath-taking and well worth taking the coastal route even tough sometimes hairy with drivers -but you cannot miss it The home is well equipped and has everything you need Really lovely sitting outside in evening watching the ocean, beare island You can also see the town from the house only negative and really small - the lower oven we had problems getting to work -but it didn't interfere with the holiday as there is a top oven However it was a fabulous location and the hosts have thought of everything to make your stay really brilliant
