Castletownshend, County Cork
Moynihan's is located in a sheltered position on the rugged Toe Head peninsula, off the 'Wild Atlantic Way', and is a haven of tranquillity with a sandy beach less than a mile away. The large kitchen-dining room has fabulous sea views (as do two of the bedrooms). A 5th bedroom and additional living accommodation is provided in an adjoining annex so the property also suits two families holidaying together (but we do not let this separately). The large garden, terrace and indoor accommodation provide plenty of space for dining whatever the weather, and a wood burning stove keeps the living room warm.

We loved our stay at Toe Head. The house and garden were in perfect order, very well organised and exactly as shown in the photos. The annexe was a nice surprise as there were no pictures showing it. It was very useful to have a second toilet and shower. The house itself was spacious, comfortable and very well equipped with...

Our stay was absolutely fantastic! Found it no problem and didn’t want to leave! Wonderful places to visit nearby, but perfectly happy exploring Toehead as well. We visited during winter and so used the wood burner, which was really great. Throws out some heat! Thank you for a hugely enjoyable stay. Will definitely be back.

Management response:

We are delighted that you enjoyed our holiday home and the beautiful surrounding area - as well as making use of our new wood burning stove! We look forward to welcoming you back in the future.
