Shorecliffe House is a delightfully charismatic house tucked away along a private lane in the stunningly attractive seaside village of Glandore in County Cork. The location of Shorecliffe House could not be better, as not only do you have your own private swimming pool, tennis court, direct access to the sea and extensive gardens affording fabulous panoramic views of the rugged coastline below, but you are also a mere stone throw away from Glandore’s captivating little harbour where you will find a plethora of pretty little sailing dinghies and the delightful village street where you will find 4 lovely restaurants and a village pub.

The main house is imaginative and traditional in design, the interior displays an exquisite combination of contemporary architecture and original features, with quality furnishings and stylish décor throughout, creating a warm homely feel. 

The exteriors are every bit as tasteful, with a fabulous private swimming pool hidden away in the colourful front garden creating an idyllic secluded oasis, you’re really spoilt for choice for places to relax in here at Shorecliffe House. 

With so much to do and see in and around this idyllic coastline, you may not wish to leave this welcoming haven but if you are able to tear yourself away, why not visit nearby Union Hall, Rosscarbery, Skibbereen or Clonakilty. 

There is also a Mews House which boasts 4 bedrooms and accommodates 6 people which is included in the rental price for 15 people (9 people can be accommodated in the main house) 

There is also an additional apartment which accommodates 5 people, and can be rented at an additional cost, taking the total number up to 20.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • As beautiful as the gardens are, they are not great for people with walking difficulties, as much of the gardens are on a slope and can be slippery when wet.
  • Shorecliffe is a fabulous house in a fabulous location, but the mews house and Apartment are not furnished to the high levels of the house

Located in one of South West Ireland’s most picturesque harbour villages, Shorecliffe House benefits from a particularly stunning locale. You can see the Glandore harbour from the house and watch the pretty sailing and fishing boats dropping their anchors throughout the day. As it’s in the path of the Gulf Stream, there’s a mild climate all year round, a factor which is reflected in the array of flora and fauna you’ll see as you explore the area.  

Why not start your trip with a visit to a quintessential Irish pub? Casey’s is just 70m from the front gates of the house. Run by three siblings, it’s a wonderfully authentic and friendly experience. There’s heaps more fabulous pubs and restaurants worth visiting in the area – note that it’s worth booking in the summer months as West Cork is a hive of activity at this time. Don’t miss the farmers market in Skibereen on Saturday mornings to get the best of the local produce.

The house is also within reaching distance of some well renowned music venues; Connolly’s bar in Leap, De Barra in Clonakilty and Levis’s Corner house in Ballydeho. Levi’s has even been voted Best Pub in Ireland!

If history’s your thing, you can head 2km from the house to visit the Drombeg Stone Circle which is the oldest megalithic stone circle in Europe.

If you want activities for you and the kids, you won’t be disappointed. There’s whale watching, a sailing school and a riding school nearby, and canoeing, windsurfing, paddle boarding and surf lessons can be arranged in a lovely local lagoon. You’ll be spoilt for choice with the array of stunning walks along the coast of the Atlantic too, not to mention the stunning beaches in the surrounding area.

Local Activities
- Sailing School 5 minute walk away with sailing courses all summer long for 7 year olds up to pensioners!
- Riding school with lessons from 3 year old upwards. The school is 10 minute drive away from the house
- Coastal walks along the Atlantic
- Canoeing, windsurfing, paddle boarding and surfing lessons all in very safe lagoon nearby.

Reviews

  • Will cherish forever!

    Posted by Stacey on 05/08/2018

    Shorecliffe House could not have been better. The house itself was beautiful but the grounds were beyond compare. The owner was amazingly helpful. Glandore is a special place and the locals were warm and friendly. This was a house, town and vacation we will cherish forever.

  • Simply Wonderful!

    Created on 19/03/2018

    Our holiday in Shorecliffe in July 2017 was unanimously agreed as the best holiday ever by the three generations in attendance. Shorecliffe has the warmth and charm of its generation and the divide of accomodation gave us the perfect mix of privacy and community. Deirdre, the horticultural doyenne, describes the gardens as old and romantic "and I would change nothing". The younger ones reveled in the swimming pool and played plenty of tennis. Kerry, the ever-present but unobtrusive Steward, was most helpful in all matters. Glandore village is 5 minutes away and has two pubs with a excellent range of cuisine and a warm welcome for all ages. There’s a 5* restaurant and then even closer to Shorecliffe is Caseys pub described by our resident pub-expert as "the best pub in Munster". The beaches, and the activity facilities in the area were brilliant and we can guarantee one thing- we will definitely return.

  • A very special property!

    Posted by A. M. on 26/07/2017

    We had a wonderful week at Shorecliffe House. It is a fantastic property in a stunning location. The house is beautiful and perfect for our family get together. The main house is very spacious and probably even nicer than the pictures on the website. The mews house was ideal for the extended family and literally a couple of steps to the back door of the main house. The house is ideal for children with so much space outside to play and access to a beautiful little cove. Our kids had great fun in the pool and on the tennis court. We enjoyed walking into Glandore and having a drink or something to eat. It's a very special property in a beautiful part of Ireland and we would love to return.

  • Perfect Getaway Home!

    Posted by Simi B on 14/06/2017

    An absolute treasure! This beautiful period property made our holiday. It's grand, beautiful, full of period features with all the luxuries you could want. The kitchen is fully kitted out. The beds are so comfortable, the sheets are fresh, new and inviting. The decoration is in keeping with the theme of house which is so charming. There's a wonderful double tennis court, huge sprawling gardens and a wonderfully fun swimming pool with great depth and a diving board!
    The grounds are so well maintained with wonderful flora and fauna everywhere.... A 5 minute walk away there are a few pubs and restaurants with equally fabulous views, which is super convenient. We absolutely LOVED staying here and will be re-booking again soon.
