Mulroe Cove - The Boathouse, Fisherman's Lane

The Boathouse, Fisherman's Lane is an amazing waterfront property. As a former boathouse, it is built on the edge of the seashore, only meters from the high tide mark which at times gives the impression of being on a boat. A new wooden-framed larch-clad extension on stilts has been added to the existing and renovated stone-built boathouse.
The beautiful large scale windows give stunning views of the sea and of Mulroe Cove's unique and idyllic small harbour setting as well as of the surrounding landscape.
The Boathouse is furnished throughout with a lovely mix of both modern and antique furniture and has a seascape cottage Long Island style feel to it. It has a beautiful spacious kitchen/dining room with a lovely sitting area with stunning views of both the sea and landscape. The living room also overlooks the sea and leads to a lovely decking area for sitting outside. It has 2 double bedrooms, one of which has a seaview and the other a view over the stunning marshland landscape.

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.

Total tranquility but definitely not boring
We spent a week at the boathouse and just arrived home today. Beautiful property right on the waterside, at high tide you could just step into the crystal clear water. Stephanie was the perfect host, we had use of the BBQ, which we used most nights, and we were able to borrow the kayak and lifejackets too, which we really enjoyed. Evenings we spent relaxing and painting pebbles or painting what we had photographed that day. We watched the fisherman going out and in, he is willing to share his catch if you are interested. The week flew by, and we had an amazing time, the only one thing was that we didn't like the taste of the water as it is high in iron, but easy to buy big bottles of water in local shops. Also, eating out, the pub in Durrus served us the most freshest ever fish and crab that we have ever had for only 14euro pp,
