There are few homes in Ireland that I’d love to own as much as the one you’re about to read about.

Known as Haggart House, this gorgeous 19th-century farmhouse in Cork has everything you’ll need for a very chilled-out weekend away.

It’s also a handy spin from a heap of things to do. In the guide below, you’ll find everything you need to know along with how much a few nights will set you back.

Welcome to Haggart House

You’ll find Haggart House in the Mealagh Valley, just 8km from Bantry town. This gorgeous gaff is a 19th-century farmhouse and it can accommodate up to 4 guests.

With slate flooring, a Belfast farm sink and a large wood-burning fire, cosy rural getaways don’t come much better than this.

The two-bedroom heritage stone house has been beautifully refurbished and it now boasts a modern interior that still has an old-world vibe.

It even has a sauna, a hot tub and a hydro spa

Yes. A sauna. A hot tub. And a hydro spa (I’m not really sure what a hydro spa is but it sounds class…).

The sauna and hydro spa are located in an upstairs bathroom that has floor to ceiling windows that offer stunning views of the adjacent countryside.

The hot tub (see above) is finely plonked in a very funky looking room that also comes equipped with one of those swingy chairs (defo not their real name…).

A mighty spot for a getaway with friends

The outdoor decking area features a large bbq that’s perfect for cooking up locally sourced produce at any time of year.

Of an evening, you can enjoy the outdoor patio or kick-back by the antique wood-burning stove (see above). 

If you’re looking for things to do, the Sheep’s Head Way and St Finbarr’s Pilgrim Way are both a handy sping from the cottage.

How much a night will set you back

So, as is the case with many places to stay in Ireland at the minute, Haggart House is booked up until October.

I popped in 4 nights in October for 4 friends sharing. It works out pretty reasonable per person per night:

  • Total: €869
  • Total per person: €217.25
  • Total p/p per night: €54.31
  • Check prices or book a night here
  • If you book an Airbnb via the link above, we’ll make a small commission (you won’t pay extra) that goes towards the running of this site (it’s very much appreciated!).
