Cottage
This bright and airy traditional cottage is located in idyllic surroundings 1km from the beautiful village of Schull. Kitchen/Dining living area, Sun Room, Master Bedroom with full Bathroom, Twin Bedroom and Bathroom. Free WIFI available. The village of Schull runs the length of main street with a remarkable selection of shops and services with plenty of local art and crafts to take home as a reminder. Mount Gabriel shelters the village from the north, well worth the 1339 ft climb to the top for the wonderful views across the harbour, Roaring Water Bay and Carbery's hundred isles. Bicycles can be hired for a closer look at the sights along our empty roads, at as lower pace there are plenty of walks, or golf for those who enjoy walking with a purpose. There are tennis courts, squash courts...This bright and airy traditional cottage is located in idyllic surroundings 1km from the beautiful village of Schull.

The Mizen Head Signal Fog Station guarantees a unique and authentic experience in any weather. Then there is, of course, the opportunity to sample the excellent local produce from both sea and farm in the fine selection of pubs and restaurants.More

This review is late in coming. We came back to the states to numerous personal family issues that needed attending. However, now I can catch up...this was the best vacation rental I have ever been in. Nancy was attentive and made us feel as if the cottage was our home away from home. We spent a little over a week there early last April and plan to go back again next year. We visited many different areas of Ireland on our trip, but Schull was our favorite by far.

Many thanks Nancy for Quarry Cottage. Beautiful scenic location, peaceful and quiet, clean comfortable house with quality fittings and utensils. Large smart TV should you wish a cosy night in. The village of Scull a beautiful 10 minute stroll away. Especially loved the peace and quiet and fantastic walks all around the Cottage Thank you once again

We spent a lovely week staying at Quarry Cottage in Schull. Perfect for a family of 4 or four adults. The cottage was spotlessly clean and Nancy left sanitizer and antibacterial spray in the porch with paper roll. Nancy also left milk and a fruit cake which was a lovely welcome. There’s outdoor furniture in the front of the house where the sun shines most of the day and I enjoyed sitting out there in the evening looking over Schull Harbour whilst sipping a glass of wine 🍷. There’s a beautiful loop walk which we enjoyed every morning taking in a few hills and views of Fasnet Rock, then back along Colla Road to the graveyard which you can walk alongside to the Harbour walk into town for delicious coffee and breakfast in Nikki’s cafe while watching the world go by. My idea of heaven!

A truly lovely house in beautiful surroundings with truly magical views. Ideally located for us a little out of Schull so that we could enjoy a walk into, and out of, town down the hill and along the "seafront" path. Sailor's Hill viewing point is next door and magical. The house is well equipped - we wanted for nothing - and it was lovely to walk in and find milk in the fridge for that cup of tea before heading to the shop to stock up. We are regular visitor's to Schull but don't always need to rent; if we need to rent in future our first call will be Quarry Cottage.

Quaint beautiful cottage with lovely sea views. A great base for touring west Cork, Mizen head is nearby as is the most beautiful beach in Ireland Barleycove. You can also explore Sheeps head and Beara peninsulas which are stunning. Don't forget the camera! The cottage is so cosy and spotlessly clean and your host Nancy is a wonderful lady. We go back time and time again and will continue to do so.

We had the most lovely time at Quarry Cottage last month. It is cozy, beautiful and equipped with everything you need. Overlooking Schull Harbor, you're just a short walk away from town. Nancy and Tom are available if you need absolutely anything at all (in our case, it was advice on how to find a unicorn wand that my cousin saw at the market) and Phoebe the neighborhood dog is always up for a good outside happy hour. We look forward to returning many, many times in the near future!

Very comfortable spotless and well equipped cottage. Peaceful with wonderful sea views yet convenient to Schull centre which has plenty of shops bars and restaurants. Gorgeous walks from the door. Very central for touring this beautiful area and a great place to relax .Nancy was very friendly and helpful . We enjoyed our stay in her lovely cottage. The Sunday market in Schull is worth a visit . A car is useful but Schull is within walking distance.

Better than the pictures. Very clean, neat as a pin. Nancy is helpful as needed but leaves you alone. Loved the sea view as the rose!!! And the sun room and patio with pretty plants that attract singing birds! Hope to go back someday.

Getting around
A car is recommended for getting around but there is a public bus (Bus Eireann) that goes from Schull to Cork city and it passes through other villages along the way that are worth a visit.
