The cottage is called Suaimhneas which is gaelic or Irish for tranquility and peacefulness.

The cottage is situated on its own private enclosed grounds and has ample parking, safe playground for children and secluded area to relax and sunbathe. You can enjoy an open air picnic and view the scenic countryside. Combining the best of both worlds it has every modern convenience and all the romantic appeal of a traditional cottage.

The cottage has a welcoming lounge with inglenook and solid fuel stove. A starter fuel pack is provided for each guest. The interiors are finished in natural wood which creates a warm welcoming atmosphere. Suaimhneas is approved by the Irish Tourist Board. It is located 1km from the village of Ballylickey which is nestling on the edge of beautiful Bantry Bay with the backdrop of the Caha Mountain Range.
