In the countryside, but next to the craic.

West Cork

NATIVE is a Landscape Hotel on the edge of Ireland in West Cork. A retreat from busy city life. NATIVE is next to the sea and the rugged Irish landscape, yet at the centre of village life. Pubs, music, food.

NATIVE found a home in the picturesque village of Ballydehob. The village has for decades attracted painters, poets, writers, musicians, bohemians and vagabonds to its beautiful countryside and vibrant community. Today the village is host to multiple music festivals, a world-famous music venue, Michellin-starred restaurant, and multiple pubs, cafés and galleries.

The NATIVE guesthouse (open from August 2024) has 3 en-suite bedrooms with a communal living room and dining area. A place for reading and conversation, guests can enjoy books, fine art, old maps, coffee and cakes.

Each room is designed to pay homage to Irish design heritage but updated to a modern, luxurious standard. Combining mid-century design classics, antique pieces with modern touches, guests can enjoy mini bar facilities with cocktails and natural wine, a desk, bespoke linen bedding and other custom touches. Photos to follow.

The full NATIVE site with modern contemporary cabins, generous event space, and rain garden will open in summer 2025. For first reservations for cabins please join the waiting list.
