Blairscove House Bed and Breakfast
Sitting on a promontory jutting into Dunmanus Bay, Blairscove House enjoys a stunning waterside location. Around the courtyard of a Georgian House, beautifully restored with cobbled paths, shrubs and flowers, are the restaurant and four stylish suites or small apartments which can be rented on a B&B or self-catering basis. Formerly a piggery, coach house and servants quarters each suite is totally individual in style and furnished with a dashing mixture of modern and antique furniture and original art work.
In the grounds but a short distance from the main complex is The Cottage and 9 miles from Blairscove in the direction of Mizen Head is a further house on Dunmanus pier.
The restaurant, on one side of the courtyard quadrangle, used to be the properties stable building. 250 years old it is lofty, stone walled and black beamed with a magnificent chandelier as the central feature.
This beautiful part of West Cork is the perfect holiday destination for the discerning individual traveller. A place not touched by mass tourism it showcases the best of Ireland’s unspoilt beauty with beautiful walks on the Sheeps Head and Mizen peninsulas.
In 1972 this traditional two storey house was nothing but a pigsty. But look at it now. With a mix of modern amenities, contemporary art and a good selection of bric-a-brac you will find it cosy and homely.
The Piggery has two bedrooms, one with a king size bed and its own en suite shower room, the other with two antique brass bedsteads and room for a cot. The additional large family bathroom makes it suitable for families with small children or four adults.
Sleeps 4 plus a baby in a cot
The Coach House
As you can see from the stone arch over the entrance door the second of our holiday rentals used to be the coach house. Now it features a very modern duplex apartment.
A huge window from the downstairs up past the mezzanine floor offers fabulous views over Dunmanus Bay and the Sheeps Head Peninsula.
The Smoke House
This traditional two storey house surprises with its modern and spacious interior. The Smoke House is located on the left side of the courtyard and though it does not have sea views it offers beautiful vistas across fields and hills. It is the most spacious of our guest apartments for two and has a fabulous bathroom with his and hers sinks, rain shower and a large free standing bath tub.
It is the preferred room of our wedding couples but is not suitable for toddlers.
The Loft is situated upstairs, above the entrance to the restaurant. It used to be part of the hay loft above the stables which now house the restaurant.
The loft is a contemporary apartment which boasts absolutely fantastic views over Dunmanus Bay and the Sheeps Head and Mizen Head peninsulas all the way to the Atlantic. It is a beautiful place for two.
