Self catering holiday cottage on the

The house shares part of the ancient Monastic site of the early Christian saint, MALKEDAR. Nestling into the shelter of MOUNT BRANDON, at the beginning of the PILGRIM'S WAY, it has breathtaking views over SMERWICK BAY and beyond to FERRITERS' COVE and the BLASKET ISLAND known as THE DEAD MAN, or THE SLEEPING GIANT.

You can walk from the house and up the mountain behind it on a path that pilgrims have walked for hundreds of years. The higher you get, the better the views, from the top of the highest mountain in Ireland you can look out over the whole of the BLASKET ISLAND group. Or you can take the costal walk along the cliffs and look down on the nesting sea birds.
