We’ve Found The Perfect Irish Airbnb For a Staycation This Summer

Megan Cassidy

Screw the Seychelles…

The weather so far this summer has been unbelievable, and we’ve managed to fall even more in love with our country because of it.

If you’re like us and you never want to leave, you might be interested in this STUNNING West Cork airbnb that may as well be an exclusive European villa.

‘LAHARANDOTA – The Artists’ Studio’ is a restored Irish farmhouse near the Sheep’s Head peninsula that boasts an outdoor pool and views of Dunmanus Bay, Mizen Head and the West Cork Countryside.


There are two separate units on the site – the studio, and the cottage. The studio boasts a King bedroom, a sun room that transforms into a twin room, ensuites in both – and sea views from both.

The cottage next door is larger, with three bedrooms and a large open-plan living room/kitchen area with an open fire.


Three guests is a total of 100EUR per night, with quotes on request to rent the entire complex for the night, sleeping ten guests total.

The two units can also be rented separately with shared use of the swimming pool, which looks out over the bay.


Reviewers on airbnb have described the getaway as ‘secluded, comfortable and very special.’

One guest wrote:

‘Splendid isolation, breathtaking landscape and the most unique and stylish interior I’ve ever seen in my life.’


We recommend staking a claim in this one quickly, as we reckon with the weather the way it’s been, this little hideaway will book up quickly.
