Derrynane Lodge, Ring of Kerry
Derrynane Lodge, Ring of Kerry
West Cork is the place many Dubliners head for – leaving hurried city lives behind to play along the long zig-zagging coastline, and walk or ride through peaceful inland woods and valleys. It is where those in the know go for a spectacular holiday, away from the hordes.
Hundreds of inlets, tiny coves, safe harbours and beaches are just right for long active days in the salty air – learning to sail, surfing, diving, whale watching, island-hopping, bird spotting, kayaking on a salt-water lake in the moonlight, messing about in boats. Or simply eating a fresh crab sandwich on a quayside.
For more information see what the Discover Ireland website has to say about the area.
Every summer, the West Cork town of Bantry becomes one of the most important festival destinations with the West Cork Chamber Music Festival, West Cork Literary Festival and the Masters of Tradition Festival.
Why not book a stay at this property when the festivals are on?

Anchor Haven has an elevated decked patio and barbecue area overlooking the bay and its own private pier and slipway which is accessed by a gate at the bottom of the garden. The garden is private with high wooden gates and is full of exotic plants that rarely grow in Ireland but thrive in Crookhaven due to its mild climate that benefits from the warmth of the Gulf Stream.
Crookhaven Bay is horseshoe shaped, approximately 1.5km long and is very safe for all types of water sports. Small sailing boats, canoes and wind surfers regularly use it and from the beginning of July until Mid August there are sailing races for children in the bay.
Crookhaven, just a 2 minute walk away, is a very picturesque and pretty fishing village village with three piers, three pubs/bars serving local seafood, a sailing club where sailing courses are available, grocery shop, craft shop and restaurant. There is live music in the village most nights and it is possible to buy fresh lobsters, fish and crab etc from the local fishermen on the pier. In the winter months the village is very quiet and peaceful but there is always a warm open fire and welcome in the O’Sullivan’s pub.
