Situated on the grounds of a 200 year old Georgian Manor, Grove House Courtyard Cottages offer an oasis of calm in beautiful West Cork. There are 3 separate cottages available – each completely unique, and wonderfully inviting. All 3 were completely remodelled in 2007, and are the perfect gateway to the southwest of Ireland. Arguably the most scenic part of the country, it also offers an abundance of historical and cultural sites. All that and just 20 minutes walk from the bustling and vibrant town of Skibbereen, to keep you entertained in the evenings!
All 3 Cottages have open plan living areas with exposed beams and cut-stone walls. All have a sofa that converts to a double bed if needed (the 2 bedroom ‘Barn Suite’ is recommended for more than 2 adults). The lounges are cool and comfy and include TV with full satellite package, video, DVD and stereo. Kitchens have oven/hob, microwave and dishwasher. All are centrally heated, so they are always warm and cosy in cooler months. The maximum any of the cottages can accommodate is 4 persons.
Each Cottage comes equipped with a full Kitchen.
Choose to cook and enjoy your meals at your cottage, or head into Skibbereen, where a great variety of restaurants, ‘pub-grub’ and take-away establishments are available.
On the Map: Skibbereen is located in County Cork, in the southwest of Ireland. The town is accessed via the scenic N71 road that connects the cities of Cork (to the northeast) & Kenmare, County Kerry (to the northwest).
This thriving town is the ‘capital’ of West Cork, and centre for all the agricultural, industrial and tourist activities of the region. Its streets are full of life and character and it is an ideal base from which to discover the delights of West Cork. You could easily spend days or weeks exploring West Cork, wandering up and down its lovely quiet roads. Although popular, it is never crowded like Kerry, and there are always delightful places to discover. Around each western headland, the unsuspecting visitor will discover coastlines dominated by scenic harbors and colorful fishing villages such as Glandore, Baltimore and Schull, secluded beaches and dozens of sparsely populated islands such as Sherkin and Cape Clear. These islands, which were once populated with Gaelic speaking colonies, now offer the visitor endless hours of exploring an old-world traditional Ireland.
