Description

Claire has described his/her home in English.

What you will love about this home

What I love about our home is the space, all of the rooms are big. I love the beautiful views of the Valley. I (Claire) like to create things and have upcycled many pieces of furniture in bright fun colours. The interior of the house is painted in many different cheerful colours which I find make me happy. We have a lovely decking area. We have 4 chickens who provide us with a daily supply of fresh eggs. We also have a large polytunnel in which I grow many different types of salads and vegetables.I feel like our home has a bit of personality is a bit quirky and colourful. I love how private and peaceful it is here.

What you will love in the neighborhood

We live in a Valley just outside of Bantry town. It is a very peaceful scenic area. I love to listen to the birds chirping outside. We have a really nice community here the neighbours are very friendly. It is a really nice area for going for a walk , a run or a cycle and to appreciate the beautiful nature around you. I think Bantry is a great place to go if you are a foodie and a nature lover. There are alot of things I love about Bantry firstly the fact that it is by the sea. I love the fresh sea air .There are lots of great places to eat particularly if you are lover of artisan food, there is a really fabulous place called Mannings Emporium which is one of the top artisan food outlets in the country https://www.tripadvisor.ie/ShowUserReviews-g211922-d1825785-r223910641-Manning_s_Emporium-Bantry_County_Cork.html. Another one of my favourites is also a lovely cafe for the health conscious called organico , I love this place I love the atmosphere in here it is so relaxed the food is so healthy and wholesome .https://www.tripadvisor.ie/Restaurant_Review-g211922-d1825786-Reviews-Organico_Cafe-Bantry_County_Cork.html Another great artisan cafe is The stuffed Olive , They have gorgeous salads , desserts and ready made meals to take away and great for coffee lovers.https://www.tripadvisor.i /Restaurant_Review-g211922-d7314922-Reviews-The_Stuffed_Olive_Food_Wine_Store-Bantry_County_Cork.html and finally if you are looking for a traditional irish food with plenty of potatoes and vegetables ,this is the place to go https://www.tripadvisor.ie/Restaurant_Review-g211922-d2054786-Reviews-The_Snug-Bantry_County_Cork.html you will not go away hungry ! There are loads mor fab restaurants, pizzerias.There are so many great places to explore around the Bantry area such as the very famous " Sheeps head way", Bantry House,Glengarriff is a little gem of a village It is so picturesque its only about 10 minute drive from Bantry, Killarney is about an hours drive away, Gougane Barra is also close by it like something you would see on a postcard, The Beara peninsula. The scenery around here is amazing. I could go on and on.
