Inches Cottages and Boat Angling Centre

Here in South West Ireland, Inches House and Boat Angling Centre offers you 3 well appointed self-catering cottages. Set at the foot of the Slieve Miskish mountain range on a quiet country lane on the beautiful Beara peninsula, West Cork.

The Cottages are situated approximately 1km from Eyeries village and 1.5km from the Atlantic Ocean.

Eyeries is renowned for its multi-coloured houses and its panoramic views over the Atlantic. It has 2 pubs, a shop, a café, a restaurant and post office. It has won several gold and silver awards in the small village category of the Tidy Towns competition.

The busy fishing port of Castletownbere is approximately 5.5km from Inches House Cottages. There are a selection of supermarkets, pubs, cafes and restaurants. It is also the home of McCarthy’s bar as featured in the book of the same name written by the late Pete McCarthy.

The Ring of Beara is a scenic coastal driving route around the finger-like Beara peninsula which projects South West into the Atlantic Ocean. Whilst motoring, walking or cycling you have ever-changing mountain and sea views extending to the Ring of Kerry in the North and the Sheeps Head and Mizen Peninsulas in West Cork to the South.
