A little Pierce of Irish heaven - PIERCE HOUSE B&B WEST CORK


Just a few minutes from the colourful West Cork village of Ballydehob, down a quiet lane, we find the lovely Pierce House, a wonderful B&B with its own two acre garden overlooking the sea. Perched in a high position with amazing views this has to be one of the prettiest houses in the area.

Step into a breathtaking lounge with great views from floor to ceiling windows which showcase this beautiful part of Ireland. Pierce House is 3km (1.8 miles) from Ballydehob and 11km (6.8 miles) from the popular fishing village of Schull

Rooms are spacious and include The Blue Room with a huge double bed that can be converted into singles and The Green Room with a double bed and divan. Both have en suite facilities, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities and are decorated in a stylish but comfortable fashion with artistic touches. Rooms have their own entrances and car parking is available outside. There is free Wi-Fi and the mobile phone signal is good.

Hosts Patricia and Chris couldn’t be more welcoming. They have both spent their careers in the film and TV industry and can share many an anecdote over morning coffee or a glass or two at the end of the day. Expect a hearty homecooked breakfast which can be enjoyed on the terrace looking out over Roaringwater Bay before walking down to the quay just minutes from the house. Special diets are happily catered for as long as you give advance notice .

There is plenty to do nearby – don’t miss an evening at one of the local pubs many featuring live music and great food. Ballydehob has a reputation for fine restaurants serving excellent local produce.

One of the delights of visiting this part of Ireland is exploring the fabulous coastline and The Wild Atlantic Way is on the doorstep with fabulous sailing, diving, bird watching and walks.

Ballydehob and Schull are famous for their lively arts scene including music and jazz festivals and the Fastnet Film Festival, now in its tenth year, which celebrate short films from all over the world.
