Holidaying at Leamcon


Leamcon Farmhouse is a peaceful West Cork getaway overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and surrounded by farmland. Situated down a private track in 2 acres of its own grounds and with stunning views of the dramatic coastline and a medieval Castle. The house dates from the 1850s and has been extended and renovated to a high standard while retaining many of its original features. The surrounding coastal farmland and the boreen up to our house transports you to times gone past and brings you to an oasis of tranquility where you can unwind and settle into a holiday that feeds all of your senses. 

 

You can walk two minutes through our back trail to the quiet pier to enjoy a picnic, fishing from the rocks or swimming in the sheltered cove. The area offers fantastic countryside and coastal walks- stroll towards the Napoleonic tower on Ceann Con for a magnificent view of Roaring Water Bay and its wealth of islands, or amble down to Gunn Point to pick mussels from the rocks at low tide. Ten minutes drive west brings you to the sandy beach of Ballyrisode or Goleen village, the gateway to the Mizen, Barleycove and Crookhaven. Ten minutes east is Schull with its lively pubs and restaurants, range of shops, watersports and boats to Cape Clear and Sherkin Islands. Have a memorable stay in West Cork with our advice on fantastic walks, great restaurants and buying seafood direct from local fishermen at our local and nearby piers. 

 

Make sure you take time to relax while taking in the magnificent sea-views, barbecuing fresh caught fish, chatting around the wood burning stove, or reading in front of the open hearth fire in a sunset filled living room. The house offers a well equipped kitchen, range of books, DVDs and board games for all ages to ensure a comfortable stay. You'll never forget waking in the master bedroom with its sea and castle views or going asleep beneath the stars of a West Cork sky.
