Where you’ll be

Enniskean, County Cork, Ireland

The cottage is located in rural Cork but yet is within a 15 minute drive from Clonakilty, 10 minutes from Bandon and 5 minutes from the village of Enniskeane. The cottage is situated well off a small secondary road which has very little traffic and is safe to walk or cycle. This allows for quiet relaxation and privacy in a lovely verdant area with lots of woodland walks along country roads. The area is steeped in history with connections with Finn McCool and the Fianna and the burial place of Diarmuid is thought to be located on the far side of the Bandon river just a few fields away. In pre Christian times the local area was inhabited by a spiritual man and his followers known as St Serges. St Mary’s Church attached to Kilcolman Rectory was built on the site of St Serges’ hermitage. St Colman set up a Christian church many years afterwards to the east of this hermitage. The land along the river was planted with English settlers as part of the extension of the plantation of Bandon in the sixteen hundreds under the Earl of Bandon who lived in nearby Castle Bernard.
