There are few places on earth that matches the incredulity of staying in such a property. I stayed there in May 2014 for a weekend. Spectacular, stunning, beautiful, wonderfully appointed, clean, tidy, are just some of the words that I can say about this place. If you want an unusual place for the weekend then it has to be this... More

The Galley Head Lightkeeper's house is truly a remarkable location. Isolated, quiet and amazingly serene ..if you are looking to escape from smart phones and the constant distraction of technology this is the place. The gulls, wind and surf will take you away. Put another brick of peat on the fire and rediscover the joy of reading. Highly recommend.

What an amazing place this is. Beautiful buildings, very comfortable. The views and walks around the light house area stunning. Could not recommend this enough. There is a grand walk down to the local bar. Just remember to bring a light with you for the walk home in case you stay longer than intended.

This was our second trip to Galley Head Lightkeeper's House and it was every bit as good the second time around. Lovely views, walks, wildlife, lobstermen, seals and an abundance of birds. A "self-catering" rental means you can afford to stay home for dinner whenever you please. 20 minutes from Clonakilty and shops, Roscarberry andf O'Callaghan and Walsh seafood restaurant... More
