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, coachhouse 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.
The Piggery BC1 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 BC2 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 BC3 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 BC4 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.
Blairscove Cottage Situated on the Blairscove estate, The Cottage stands in its own grounds with direct access to Dunmanus Bay. This spacious 4 star house features living and sleeping accommodation for four guests downstairs and for four guests upstairs which is perfect for the larger family or friends wanting to holiday together. A perfect combination offering the freedom of a self-catering holiday and the amenity of a restaurant nearby.
Housekeeping can be arranged. Sleeps 8 plus a baby in a cot.
