Mulroe Cove - House

Waterfront holiday home with private pool and kitchen
'Mulroe House' sleeps 4 and has a comfortable and homely feel with its wooden floors and thick stonewalls. It has two bedrooms, one double and one twin bedroom, a separate bathroom with bath/shower facilities, a cosy kitchen with dining area and a living room with a beautiful old stone fireplace and an antique corner cupboard.
It is stylishly furnished with antique and modern furniture.

'Mulroe House' can also be combined with 'Mulroe Studio' to make one large unit that sleeps 6.

Mulroe Cove is a superb waterfront property and has a truly spectacular and uniquely private setting. It has its own private shingle beach which is only 5 metres from the house and spreads 0.5 km wide. It is a wonderful place to swim, kayak and fish or to stroll and relax on.

Due to its very sheltered position on the South side of the Dunmanus Bay, Mulroe is not only a superb seafront property, but is also set in 5 acres of mature gardens, which comprises a walled garden with Mediterranean and tropical plants as well as various areas of lawn with mature trees and a woodland with waterway. The woodland stretches over 0.5 miles from the house to the main road, thus lending the house a very private and tranquil setting.

At the far side of the beach the sea stretches into a beautiful wild marshland in which many different varieties of birds live and nest. This is a beautiful conservation area.

The house is a lovingly restored stone cottage set in the beautiful walled garden with wonderful sea views. It combines old with new, thus lending the house a timeless feel full of character.

The house consists of three separate rental units, the first, called 'The Artist's Studio' sleeps 2-4 people, the second, called 'Mulroe House' sleeps 4 and the third, "The Boathouse sleeps 4 .

'Mulroe Studio' sleeps two. It has a spacious double height living/dining room with a characterful mix of antique and modern furniture and a twin bedroom on a mezzanine floor. It has a charming kitchen with an old dresser, table and a free-standing modern gas-cooker with electric oven and a stylish, contemporary bathroom with bath/shower. The seaviews from the kitchen, living room and bedroom are stunning.

It is possible to sleep a third person on the bedsofa in the living room.

Lovely location- but poor accommodation
Dirty and smelt fusty. Lots of cobwebs, had to wash crockery, cutlery and pans before we used them. Lack of basic cooking utensils, including sharp knives and a sieve. Cold had to ask for the heating to be put on. Even then we had to light a fire to keep warm, had to buy fuel and matches to do so.. Not enough glasses, toilet cistern not working properly. Couldn’t get the TV to work. No hairdryer in the property either. Felt a very unloved property.

The Perfect Spot
Stunning location, with an amazing view over the bay that changes throughout the day. We were thrilled to have our own private beach & beautiful grounds to explore, exercise and entertain in. Stephanie, our host was super helpful and amazing at pointing us in the direction of all great things to do right on your doorstep. We very much enjoyed having Buster the Pug as our holiday dog,. A beautiful, relaxing spot for individuals, families & group get togethers, next time we'll look to book out all the houses so our friends can join us in enjoying what this very special place has to offer.

Watching the water and dolphins
This is a truly enchanting property in a magical location. The hostess is very friendy and helpful. The period property is set in the grounds of an old county house but even better is located in a walled garden that leads directly ion to the ocean inlet. Having breakfast overlooking the sea and the countryside on the opposite side of the inlet is as good a start to the any day as you can get. It is so good a start that it could take up the whole day especially if amongst the regular wildlife a pair of dolphins swim up the inlet and then out. The nearby attractions are also very good, with the Irish music good food and Guinness that is a feature of Cork. Pure magic.

Lovely cottage in an amazing location.
The location is absolutely awesome, incredibly peaceful and right by the beach. Our children loved being able to wander to and from the beach to our cottage. The photos don't do justice to the properties. We stayed in Mulroe House and thought it was full of character. We had a really enjoyable stay and hope to return.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely waterside property in peaceful surroundings
When the weather is good there is no need to travel anywhere. With the water on our doorstep we could swim and relax on a beach of our own. Thank you Stephanie for being such a friendly hostess.

Un séjour formidable
