A Luxury Holiday Home in West Cork

Experience island living in an idyllic landscape

The Main House & Gardens

Gortadrohid is one of the most luxurious 6-bedroom holiday homes West Cork has to offer. An exceptionally private waterfront holiday rental with over 1/4-mile sea frontage, private slipway and strand, set in 24 acres of beautiful, unspoilt land.
Wildflower meadows frame the stunning views across Baltimore Harbour and Roaringwater Bay.


This large holiday home was rebuilt in 2015 to Passive House standards. It offers beautifully furnished light-filled spaces testament to the owner’s background in interior design. There are also outstanding views from all the principal rooms, whether you’re cooking a family dinner as the sun sets across the strand or waking up to the first glimpse of daylight in one of the house’s five luxury bedrooms, or in the additional bedroom located in the studio.


The main house caters for 11 guests comfortably (the studio is necessary for 12 guests), and is designed to offer the best luxury self-catering experience West Cork has to offer. The fabulous 40-foot kitchen is the perfect place to enjoy the company of friends or family, with excellent cooking facilities. The space is flanked by two terraces, with tables and chairs for al fresco dining.

The Kitchen

Bright and open plan, with an efficient underfloor heating system warming the traditional flagstone floor and generous views of the sea, Spanish Island and Mount Gabriel, Gortadrohid’s kitchen sets the standard for luxury self catering, and is unequivocally the place to gather and look out over the waterfront.

The American-style fridge-freezer, large range cooker, two dishwashers, and expansive worktop space make cooking for large groups a breeze, and the classic Majorcan farmhouse table seats up to fourteen. There is a large corner sofa in the open plan sitting area of the kitchen, which is a great place to relax without being cut-off from the rest of the house.

The Sitting Room

Get the fire roaring, dim the lights, and hunker down for a cosy evening around the Smart TV, reading a good book, or even just recalling the day’s events. The sitting room is a separate quiet space enjoying amazing views in 3 directions. It also offers direct access to the West facing terrace.

The Bathrooms

In the main house, you’ll find a family bathroom with both a bath and shower, an additional shower room, and two ensuite bedrooms.
