Useful Links:

There is no public transport to speak of so you do need a car. However there is a taxi service in both Ballydehob and Schull for airport transfers as well as general local trips - you need to book in advance - numbers supplied.

We have a small annexe on the grounds for our personal use but we do not use it when there are guests in the main house so you can benefit from complete privacy during your stay.
