About the neighbourhood
Mill Race House is in the outskirts of the delightful and small village of Durrus. The town has real Irish charm to it with a selection of pubs and restaurants and a local shop where you can collect all necessities. We would be delighted to recommend local bars and shops to renters. Durrus is also located in the heart of the countryside and right along the coastline so there are plenty of outdoor activities to be done without getting into a car.
