Self catering holiday cottages in Eyeries, Cork, Ireland
What Eyeries, Cork offers for Self-Catering Holidays
Eyeries is an interesting place to visit for a cottage holiday for lovers of films and movies, as it was here that the 1977 film The Purple Taxi was filmed. Starring Hollywood legend Fred Astaire along with French actor Philippe Noiret and English actress Charlotte Rampling, the film uses the gorgeous green hills and mountains to tell the tale of a group of self-induced exiles living in a small Irish village, Eyeries. In further testament to Eyeries’ incredible natural beauty, the village was also the setting for the TV series ‘Falling for a Dancer’ which aired in 1998. Filmmakers choose this gorgeous village in which to film, time and time again.
If you are curious as to why Eyeries is chosen for the setting of films and TV shows, then after a visit to this friendly, pleasant and above all, stunning village, you will not question why. The cosy and quaint cottages in the village are painted with bright colours which look beautiful when the sun is shining and the skies are blue, and as the population of the village is fairly small, there is a close-knit feel within the community, and you will feel like a local after a couple of days here.
There are pubs filled with the sound of traditional music, plenty of places for walks and cycles up the craggy mounds and by the Coulagh Bay, plus there are also a number of cultural events going on within the town. The Eyeries Family Festival takes place annually in July and includes lots of fun activities and things to do for everyone from the kids to the grandparents!
Eyeries could be ideal for a romantic getaway, a pet-friendly self-catering holiday or a family holiday.
