Boreen Cottage is located on the coastal road between the busy market town of Skibbereen and the charming village of Castletownshend along the #Wild Atlantic Way.

A much loved family summer retreat for the past 25 years, this south facing house enjoys panoramic views of the Wild Atlantic ocean. There is a very large garden and a patio area that gets the sun for most of the day until early evening (when it's shining!).

Beautiful location on the coast with outstanding views. Only 15 minutes from the shops at Skibbereen, and 25 to Baltimore with good food and a harbour full of activities. Dee is a great host and the cottage is lovely.
