An excellently well maintained and deceptively spacious 19th Century, 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom detached stone cottage with home office located on approx. 0.5 acres of mature landscaped garden with sea view at Ahakista on the Sheep's Head Peninsula in West Cork 


The property is located along the Wild Atlantic Way – Europe's longest coastal drive – in the heart of the Sheep's Head Way walking trail in the coastal village of Ahakista and is only a short stroll to the sea. There are several coves close by that are ideal places to swim and the Ahakista Pier (where moorings are available), 2 pubs (one with restaurant) and an art gallery with café are close by. The nearest town is Bantry – a 20 minute drive from the property and Cork city and airport are a one and a half hour journey by car
