Rural Country getaway
Ideal spot to get away from it all. 20 minutes from Macroom 30 minutes to cork city, 5 minutes from Coppeen village. Coppeen village is located on the Bantry Line (R585) in the beautiful countryside of West Cork, roughly 30 minutes from Cork City. The area is rich in terms of history and culture and features a wealth of archaeological sites such as ringforts, megalithic tombs and standing stones, including the unique Cahirvagliair Ring Fort. Also located nearby are the Kilmichael Ambush, Béal na mBláth Monument, and Kinneigh Round Tower.
A walks system encircles the area, providing signed walking routes of different lengths and points of interest. The quiet country roads provide an idyllic setting for a Sunday ramble with beautiful panoramic views of the surrounding areas. Maps of the walks system are available in The Village Store shop and Barrett’s Bar in the village, which provides a great luncheon service with soup and sandwiches available, plus of course, a refreshing beverage after an enjoyable walk.
Nearby, the village of Castletown-Kinneigh is nestled on a beautiful south-facing hillside between the main road routes of the Bantry Line to the north (R585) and the Bandon to Bantry road (R586) to the south. This charming village was the location for the film ‘Broken Harvest’ which was filmed in 1994, and included many locals as extras.
The village boasts a community hall (formerly the school) which hosts a range of activities all year round, including a craft fair, a bazaar, concerts, plays and regular céilí nights. The Table-Tennis hall just down the road is always a hive of activity. There is rarely a dull moment at ‘Cookie’ O’Callaghan’s Bar, Post Office and grocery shop.
Homemade food is also available at the house..
Free taxi service at the weekends to local pub.
