Our cosy cabin is nestled amongst the rolling hills of Castledonovan, situated beside a Bronze Age Stone Row looking onto the Castle with a backdrop of magnificent mountains.
Guests have access to the farm walk which runs under old Oak trees, alongside a beautiful river, a tributary of the Illen, that runs on down to Drimoleague then Skibbereen and out to the sea at Baltimore, the river has beautiful pools and falls where children can play happily for hours, theres also a stunning waterfall and swimming hole with a magical gazebo, a wonderful place to sit and listen to the sounds of nature.
Drimoleague Heritage Walkways provide visitors with walks quite literally in every direction! You can walk along the far side of the river down to Drimoleague (the nearest village) on the Cascades Walk or the Glonaclohy Walk takes you up the mountain past lakes to panaramic views of West Cork . Serious walkers can keep going all the way to Gougane Barra in the footsteps of St Finbarr. For more info see Drimoleague Heritage Walkways.
