Thank you very much for the review Alison. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay so much. It is very helpful to know that some knives weren't sharp- we will invest in a knife sharpener and some new knives! Best wishes Dee

About the neighborhood
Schull is one of the loveliest villages in West Cork, Ireland. It is set in the centre of an area of outstanding natural beauty with outcrops of granite rock juxtaposed with rolling grassy hillsides full of gorse and wild flowers.

The highest point in West Cork is Mount Gabriel which rises directly behind Schull from which there are magnificent views over Schull Harbour, beyond to all the islands in Roaring Water Bay, to Baltimore and out to Cape Clear and the Fastnet Rock. Schull is almost as far southwest as you can be in Ireland - just 10 miles or so from the most south-westerly point of Ireland at Mizen Head. The climate is extremely mild with prevailing southwesterly winds and the benign effects of the Gulf Stream. The air is marvellously clear and clean.

Schull boasts a large s...
Getting around
The Village of Schull is approximately 90 km (56 miles) or an hour and forty minute's drive from Cork City and Cork Airport, where there is excellent car hire (which we recommend). Follow signs to N 71 (West Cork) which will take you all the way to Ballydehob via Inishannon, Bandon, Clonakilty, Rosscarbery, Leap and Skibbereen. If you don't wish to stop in Bandon , Clonakilty or Skibbereen for breakfast, to sightsee or to shop, it is best to take the bypass routes marked at each town. At Skibbereen follow signs for the R592, which will take you the remaining 15 miles to the village of Schull.

There is a bus from Cork to Schull and Goleen via Skibbereen. The Lookout is 2.5 miles outside Schull. There are a couple of bikes at the house.
