Over 200 years ago, in the Winter of 1796, a formidable French Armada, inspired by Theobald Wolfe Tone and the United Irishmen, sailed from Brest in France. Their purpose was to invade Ireland, put an end to British rule and establish an independent Irish republic. Almost 50 warships carried 15,000 soldiers to the Southwest of County Cork. Enjoy the views of Bantry Bay from room with a quirky French charm.
The real magic of The Mizen is the breathtaking scenery of the landscape itself and of course the knowledge that you are at the very southern tip of Ireland. Something we have tried to evoke from the décor of this room.
In the 1800’s pilgrims were coming from all over Europe and Ireland at Easter-time to say the stations of the cross before finally kissing a stone carving over-hanging the sea at the ”Needles Eye”. Many tales have been told about various pilgrims to the island some funny others serious but all interesting. Over the years the nature of the pilgrims changed dramatically. The religious ceremonies were now almost attended entirely by girls and young men eligible for marriage. These couples instead of fasting went to the Skelligs to court, dance and have a good time! Our ‘Skelligs’ room is a treble perfect for a family or friends sharing.
Galley Head is a wonderful place where you can enjoy unspoiled and wild beauty of Ireland. The Galley Head is a headland & lighthouse outside of Rosscarbery. The station was built in 1875, during the heyday of lighthouse building. The lighthouse displays an unusual landward arc of light because, it is said, the Sultan of Turkey asked to be able to see it from Castle Freke at Rosscarbery. The castle, abandoned in 1952 can be seen from Galley as a Gothic ruin. With one of the best views from the house, sit on the patio outside and enjoy the lights of the atlantic shore (sadly not the great arc of light though!)
Malin Head gives its name to the Malin sea area. Malin Head is the most northerly point of the island of Ireland. The northern most tip is represented by a headland named Banba”s Crown. Banba was one of the mythical queens of Ireland. Come and tuck yourself into this room which celebrates sea and splendour with it’s décor.
