The little village of Goleen, on the Mizen peninsula, has the sea lapping at its skirts. The tiny harbour is cradled in the rocky coastline and all around the typical rounded "mountains" of West Cork raise their domed pates to peer above the horizon.

Opposite Goleen village church is the tiny old forge, transformed now into a charming holiday home. The delightful interior will captivate you immediately, with its wooden floors and cosy bedrooms and a kitchen to die For.

If you can drag yourself away from this little piece of paradise, there is plenty to see in the area, including standing stones, stone circles and the stunning golden sweep of the strand at Barlycove. Walkers and nature lovers alike will revel in exploring the farthest reaches of Mizen Head.

The excellent Heron’s Cove restaurant, with its gourmet food and its location at the water’s edge, will surely tempt you to walk the five minutes from Forge Cottage. And when you return to the little cottage, you will wonder if this is the house that was made of gingerbread. It certainly looks good enough to eat!
