    This lovely two story house in Na Gorta Dubha is comfortable, clean, warm and bright, has every facility you could need, and is set in the most beautiful part of the world. Downstairs, the kitchen/living area has an open fire set in a stone fireplace. The upstairs living room, which has a lovely stove, has beautiful views of the beach and the surrounding countryside. At night, with the windows open, you can hear the sea. We spend two days last summer watching a shoal of dolphins playing in the bay. The house is in very good condition and well maintained by the owners. It’s a couple of miles from An Cat Dubh (local shop), Ballyferriter village and Bric’s Pub (home to a good restaurant and microbrewery). And if you’re into golf, it’s very close to Ceann Sibeal Golf Links, a challenging but enjoyable course. There are many walks around this area, on paths or headlands or beaches.
    The house has its own garden, which is surrounded by bogland and fields which host wonderful wildflowers and birds. (A set of binoculars is supplied!). In late August you can harvest blackberries on the hedgerows.
    The house sits quietly between the mountains and the sea. A few minutes’ walk will bring you to Beal Ban, (a long beach where we swim) on Smerwick Harbour. Across the bay is Ballydavid and behind that the majestic Mount Brandon. Summer or winter (and we’ve rented it in winter also), the view of this ancient landscape is both inspiring and peaceful. I’m torn between my reluctance to share this house with anybody else and my wish to encourage others to experience the joy my family and I have experienced here over the years.
