Bleantis Mountain Cottage

 

What can we do while we stay?

Bleantis - Ireland cottages, self catering Ireland

 

This area is a walker's paradise - winter, spring, autumn or summer the mountains display magnificent, and different scenery.
In the cooler months the cold clear days make walking a pleasure and the greys and greens and russets of the mountains show them at the most rugged - sometimes with snow-dusted tops. Watch how the mountains turn red at sunset - a fabulous sight. Mountain - Ireland vacation, ireland holiday
In the summer the heather blooms and the mountains are a blaze of colour. Heather - Ireland property, Irish rental
You can pace yourself - it is easy to walk in the mountains here without stiff climbing, Seefin - Ireland cottages, self catering Ireland

The more adventurous will be able to walk high heather-covered mountains overlooking the lakes and coums of the Nire valley and of Coumshignaun (below)

Of course it does rain sometimes! If that happens there is plenty to do in Waterford with an award winning museum, fine historic buildings and the word-renowned Waterford Crystal Centre. In Clonmel, Carrick on Suir, Cashel, Dungarvan, Youghal and Cork historic sites, and shops abound - and these are within easy reach by car. Three local hotels also allow you to use their extensive leisure facilities at very reasonable prices.

 

Traditional Music and Dance
The Deise is renowned for its traditional music, played for locals by locals, and its dancing - our local set dancers and musicians having won many honours at national level. So there's rarely a night when music isn't being played in one of our hostelries, and during the first weekend in May we don't sleep(!) for four days whilst we celebrate the Feile na Deise, the annual song and dance festival held in Dungarvan where local talent and artists from round the world can be found performing traditional music. During the school holidays regular 'Seisiuns' are held in Dungarvan and down the road at Coulnasmear when you can see our talented local youngsters sing, dance and play.
