You can actually rent this magical West Cork hideaway (and wait ’til you see the pool)
It’s the stuff that staycation dreams are made of.
Sheltered in the crook between Mizen and Sheep’s Heads in beautiful West Cork, Mount Corrin is the kind of property you gaze at wistfully as you drive by.
Now, however, you can pack up your suitcase and move in, if only for a short stay.
The house, complete with croquet lawn, outdoor swimming pool, and acres of stunning gardens, is available to rent on Airbnb.
The Georgian property, built in 1750, has all the class and elegance of times gone by, with all the 21st-century creature comforts we can’t live without, from luxurious beds and furniture to wifi, a gym, and a huge TV.
But it’s the magnificent conservatory annex, which opens out onto the side terrace, that has us dreaming of summer barbecues and fairytale dinner parties.
There’s even a heated 20m swimming pool and jacuzzi – ideal for soothing your weary muscles after those long country walks
The lovely village of Durrus is nearby (you’ll find pubs and shop here for supplies) and Bantry is a 15 minute drive away if you fancy a spin for the weekly fish and vegetable market.
With six bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms, as well as a self-contained cottage on the grounds, there’s plenty of space for up to 13 guests – the more the merrier to share the €1,150 nightly fee.
Worth every cent, we say.
