Castletownsend is a stunning village in County Cork on the south western coast of Ireland and was originally based around a castle built by soldier and politician Richard Townsend in the 17th century. Incredibly, his ancestors still live in the village and the castle is still standing although not open to visitors.  With a rich history and gorgeous scenery at every turn, Castletownsend could be a great choice for a rural cottage holiday close to the coast.

St. Barrahane’s also has a number of stained glass windows by illustrator Harry Clarke. These beautiful windows should definitely be seen if you are in Castletownshend as they really are extremely striking.
