The old schoolhouse is a beautifully restored 3-bedroom cottage located in the majestic Clydagh valley.
The cottage is located at the base of the Knocknabro mountains and boasts panoramic views over the Clydagh valley.

Knocknabro schoolhouse opened in 1909 and educated the children in the valley for 58 years. The school closed in 1969 and went into disrepair. The current owners lovingly renovated the schoolhouse and extended the property in 2004.

The 1069 sq. ft (100 sqm.).cottage boasts many of its original features. As you enter the cottage you are greeted by the original flag stones in the entrance hall and the cast iron coat hanger. Set off the hall is the bathroom and the spacious living, kitchen, and dining room. The original flooring along with the wall and ceiling panelling has been restored. There is a large wood burning stove in the old hearth and patio doors lead to a south facing terrace. The 2 bedrooms were added with one ensuite. Located in the loft is a mezzanine bedroom, which could also be used as a home office.

Set on a south facing site of 0.53 acres. A stream runs through the sloped site and natural stone walls have been restored. The terrace is located to the side of the cottage and is an ideal place to relax. To the rear is a stone outbuilding which is used as a utility room.

The cottage is located 5.5km from Clonkeen,18.5 km from Ballyvourney and 22.5km from Killarney. The Paps Mountain trail is within 2km of the cottage and the Clydagh river is 1km away.
