Self-Catering Accommodation at Inish Beg Estate
Inish Beg Estate
A private island estate in beautiful West Cork with many self-catering options.
Inish Beg Estate is stunning. The island has beautiful woodland walks by the Ilen river. If you enjoy birdwatching, it is an excellent location and bird hides are dotted along the river walkways. The walled garden is very beautiful and the pervading atmosphere generally in Inish Beg is one of peace.
Your estate is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited. To find a luxury self catering cottage in amongst beautiful gardens and woodland on an island is just one in a million.
Thank you for letting us share such a special place. Our first visit to Inish Beg and the surrounding area and one to treasure. Spectacular location, beautiful tranquil grounds and ‘at one with nature’ – including George the otter!
