Self Catering Accommodation in Bandon, West Cork,  Ireland

Our stunning stone coach house self catering accommodation is located in the grounds of Kilbrogan House in BandonWe chose to purchase the house not only because we fell in love with it but because it was just 16 miles from Cork airport! The coach house was built in 1818 as part of the Bandon estate of the 6th Duke of Devonshire.  We have spent a number of years restoring it.  We have three apartments (Suites), two which sleep two comfortably and one which contains two bedrooms, a double and a twin. The self catering accommodation shares the garden with Kilbrogan House Bed and Breakfast.
