Mackens Farmhouse

icon-1 Farmhouse   icon-2 3 Bedrooms   icon-3 2 Bathrooms

The original farmhouse was built in 1885 and was a single storey thatch cottage, with outbuildings for the farm animals. The Foleys lived in the house until the last of this family Michael (affectionately called Macken) Foley died in 1980.

The thatch roof was taken off in the 1950's and the house was raised to 2 storeys with the same stone walls as the original. The roof was clad with slates from the nearby quarry on Valentia Island. A large extension was added to the rear of the house in 1995, which now houses the kitchen/dining room, utility room and bathroom.

The farmhouse stands on a working farm and is just 2 miles from Portmagee Village.

"A lovely countryside cottage in an amazing picturesque area, the cottage was just right for us, comfortable and traditional, secluded and peaceful. The turf fire was so relaxing.The local people were friendly and we enjoyed the Irish music and dancing in the pubs."

"We are six, a Dutch company of friends on our first holiday to Ireland. We learned to love the countryside in six days. The beautiful coast and countryside, the landscapes with rocks, heathers and sheep. And mostly the kindness of the Irish, Not at least the cosiness of “our” cottage. The farmhouse with its warmth, its modest atmosphere and its fire prancing. The peat smoke made us thirsty, so we could taste again and again the fine Guinness stout. We’ll come back"
