A family home: convenient, comfy, and designed for the whole family

What your guests will love about your home
Our home is a passive haus which makes it a comfortable and consistent temperature day and night with no heating bills!!! It's south facing and enjoys stunning views of a vast, green valley. Our house is located near Blarney in rural county Cork. It is a 20 minute drive to the heart of Cork City. It is a 5 minute drive to the local Inniscarra Lake which is an idyllic location for a walk or a spot of fishing. We designed and built this house. It is only one year old. We have small children so the house has been baby proofed It would be an ideal location for a family seeking a rural location to explain places in Cork like Kinsale, Macroom, Blarney, Cork city, Garrettstown.
What your guests will love about your neighborhood

Blarney Castle is 15 minute drive

Cork city is 15-20 minute drive

West cork is a 40 minute drive away but we have a gorgeous lake only 5 minute drive from our house

Additional information
A Passiv Haus is designed to maintain a consistent temperature throughout the house 24 hours a day. A Passiv Haus works on the 'envelope principle.' The house is insulated extremely well. The insulation acts like a sealed envelope making sure that the warmth stays inside the house and the cold does not penetrate or affect the temperature within the house. There is no need for radiators or a stove or a range or an open fire....although,purely for aesthetics, we have a stove in the sitting room (who doesn't love a roaring stove of a frosty winter's eve in Ireland) The house is south facing and uses solar energy to heat the water. The stove can also be used to heat the water.
