(This security deposit amount is at the discretion of our onsite supervisor and she may request up to €500.00 euro).  This will be refunded on departure providing there are no breakages or damages to the house or its contents during your stay. Location The Moorings are situated right on the edge of town, with restaurants, shops and nightlife all on hand, yet still only a short drive from the beach.  Indeed, being within an easy walk of the town's many friendly and lively pubs means no problems with having a sociable drink in the evening; a plus factor that makes for the most relaxed of stays.  For most holidaymakers, this convenience is a considerable recommendation when choosing where to stay.   Whether it's couples seeking a romantic break, energetic hiking groups yearning to stretch their legs, families with young children that can't wait to get going with a bucket and spade on golden sands, or devotees attending one of the hugely popular festivals held throughout the year, everyone loves coming to this part of West Cork.  Visitors from abroad are especially taken with the combination of friendly welcoming atmosphere and stunning scenery, and having once experienced it come back again and again.  In fact the number of famous names with a bolthole here would surprise you.  You could well bump into actor Jeremy Irons and wife Sinead Cusack, who restored nearby Kilcoe Castle, for example, while doing your weekend shopping at the Farmers Market.   BEACHES IN THE AREA: Tragumna - Skibbereen Tragumna is a sandy, sheltered beach, situated about four miles from Skibbereen. It can be reached by turning off the R596 at Abisdealy bridge and following the signs for Tragumna. Public car parking, toilet facilities and lifebuoys are provided at the beach. Life guards are on duty during the bathing season.   Owenahincha - Roscarbery Roscarbery is approx 12 miles from Skibbereen. Owenahincha is a sandy beach that backs onto sand dunes. The main route to approach the beach is from Clonakilty on the N71. Turn off at Burgatia Cross onto the R598, which leads down to the beach.  Public car parking and public toilet facilities are provided at the beach. Life guards are on duty during the bathing season. There is a short, pleasant cliff walk between the Warren Strand and Owenahincha.   Warren - Roscarbery The Warren is a sandy beach located at the mouth of Roscarbery Bay and accessed by turning off the N71 at Warren Cross. There is a pitch and putt club adjacent to the beach. Public car parking, toilet facilities and lifebuoys are provided at the beach. Life guards are on duty during the bathing season. Swimming Pool Baltimore pool is run by the community, it is open all year around. It is €10.00 per adult and €5.00 per child.    Things to do in West Cork Skibbereen is a charming and bustling market town which offers a wide range of services, facilities and goods.  It is peppered with lots of great pubs and restaurants.  Beauty spots like Mizen Head, Crookhaven, Dunmanus Bay, Glandore, the splendid beaches of Inchydoney and Castlefreke, golf course, pony trekking, fishing, boating, and so many more attractions, are within an easy drive. Skibbereen doesn't close down during the winter months, but continues its bustling cheerful way throughout the year. Whenever you come, there is always something going on - another plus factor for those seeking the ideal holiday location.   Fishing From hiring your own boat to deep sea fishing trips the choices are many and varied.More

We have just returned from a week at no.14 The Moorings. All the rental properties in the Moorings are run by the same people. The house we stayed in was more like student accommodation than a holiday home. The complete lack of care and attention...More
