On the hunt for a unique staycation? Check out this Double Decker Bus in West Cork.

Fiona Frawley

Your staycation is only as good as the ‘gram you post of it, and luckily The Beara Bus has you covered in that department.

This beautifully converted double-decker bus with views of Sheep’s Head and Mizen Head has everything you need for the perfect summer getaway. Literally every detail has been considered, from the impressive Beara Bus Menu with delicious homemade food options, to a set of binoculars you can use to take in the views from your private decking area.

The Beara Bus sleeps two guests and has a comfortable lounge area with Netflix and a cosy fire for a rainy day (not that it ever rains in West Cork), and a beautiful deck complete with your own BBQ outside. The waters below are frequently visited by basking sharks, minke whales and dolphins, so binoculars at the ready. The family who own the bus also run the popular Tea Rooms in nearby Castletownbere (hence the delicious Beara Bus Menu) which is a lovely spot if you’re looking to venture out during your stay. There’s also free parking, a private entrance, a well-equipped kitchen for your morning fry up, and did we mention the views?

This could be the perfect spot to celebrate a special birthday, escape with your gals or head away for a weekend with the other half – we promise the Insta’s will be worth it!
