About Charlotte Tindall
We are a family of four with two daughters and have been visiting West Cork for the past 10 years. We fell in love with the area and the cottage and the barn, and love coming on holiday here to spend time in the quiet of the hills and using the cottage as a base to visit local beaches, markets and go on some of our favourite walks. There is always something going on in the local area and each holiday feels different.
Charlotte Tindall purchased this Barn in 2005
Why Charlotte Tindall chose Drimoleague
We visited West Cork on holiday and loved it vibrancy, fantastic local food, great music and warm welcome. On a whim we looked at a few cottages for sale and fell in love with this cottage and barn up a secluded track. The warm sun was on our backs and before we knew it we had put in an offer! The cottage and barn needed quite a lot of work, but over the years we have restored and renovated to give it a relaxed and comfortable vibe. It is finally just as we'd hope it would turn out and every time we look at the view it makes us smile.
What makes this Barn unique
We love the peace and tranquillity, but also that we can hop in the car and explore all the wonderful local areas.

Beautiful accommodation in a fabulous location
The cottage and barn accommodation exceeded our expectations. We loved everything about it. We were four women friends travelling together and the accommodation was perfect for us. The barn space was perfect for us to get together and share meals, and enjoy the views after long days exploring the area. We fell in love with this part of West Cork. Such a beautiful place with many things to do. Had a wonderful night at Ma Murphy's, and had some great walks around the area. Loved it!
Fantastic accommodation and beautiful location
This property is very rural, but stunning, the accommodation is finished to a very high standard and offers you everything that you need to settle in and relax. The location is central to many activities that filled our week. I would recommend this property and would happily book again if/when we visit Ireland again. The backdrop of the countryside gave us many beautiful images of Mother Nature at her best.....
Great accommodation, would describe as luxury rustic. Beautiful location with fantastic views.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Great location to discover the area. We were so impressed with the cottage, great living/kitchen/dining room with beautiful views and sunsets. Really easy to cook as everything you could possibly need is available in the very well equipped kitchen. Fabulous food available in the bantry area, the local fish monger is excellent and the organic grocery store Organico was a lovely place to shop. Also couldn’t fault the SuperValu. We didn’t miss the tv or WiFi, there’s plenty of games and books provide. Lovely bedrooms, particularly the one in the barn, loved the bath. So handy to have the utility area. Both ourselves and our dogs enjoyed the outside garden. There’s plenty of tips provided on places to visit. Our favourite days were spent on Ballyrisode Beach near Toormore. Such a beautiful place and lovely for swimming with the children (ok the water was a tad cold but once the wetsuit was on we didn’t care). Overall this was a wonderful place to stay for a holiday and we have plenty of lovely memories to take with us. Thank you very much xxx
