Apartment | 5 bedrooms | sleeps 10
The Buglers Cottage is a traditional stone cottage situated in one of the most sought after and desirable locations in Ireland. The cottage has just been extensively renovated and the entire property is beautifully furnished and exceptionally decorated.
The Cottage was refurbished into 3 separate apartments.
The owners have decided to rent out the entire house during the summer season, instead of renting out each apartment. By doing this large groups have the added benefit of having their own privacy but continue to share the cottage with friends or family. This is perfect of golfing groups, large families, or friends getting together
The cottage contains 5 bedrooms, with 5 shower rooms, each having added benefit of underfloor heating.
Plenty of parking and grass area at back.
A perfect retreat when traveling around the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Killarney
The Buglers cottage has been recently renovated into 3 self contained apartments. The cottage is ideal for group travel and can be rented as one entire house. As one property there are five ensuite bedrooms, three double rooms, one twin room and one king size room. There are five shower rooms, and three separate kitchens. There is a cozy reception area which leads off to each separate apartment. The cottage is ideal for group travel as all guests are together in one house yet have their own privacy and living area.

About this location
The Province of Munster region
The Gap has long been a popular tourist attraction. The road through it is narrow, winding, and difficult for motorised traffic, so the most popular form of transport for tourists is the horse-drawn Trap, a cart where up to four occupants sit facing each other. There are also riding ponies for hire. The Trap and ponies are guided by the Gap Poneymen who are from families that live in and around the Gap. The Poneymen use a rotation system called the Turn which determines who takes the next customers. The Turn has been in existence since the 1920s and is passed down in the families to the next generation. Bikes can also be rented in the town of Killarney and ridden through the gap. More recently, tourists have visited the Gap as it was a location on Irish film The Crying Game. The Road through the Gap from a popular starting point, Kate Kearney's, down to Lord Brandon's Cottage, is about 11km long, and contains a 500-foot elevation. Many people hike or bike the route.
Gap of Dunloe
Set in one of the most sought after locations in Ireland, the Buglers Cottage is situated on the passageway through the world famous Gap of Dunloe. The popular tourist town of Killarney is a 10 minute car journey and the quaint village of Beaufort is a few minutes drive. The nearest pub/restaurant is the famous Kate Kearneys cottage which is a five minute stroll away.
The location makes an ideal base for touring Killarney, Dingle and The Ring of Kerry. The spectacular scenery provides a magnificent backdrop for an abundance of outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, mountain climbing (Magillicuddy Reeks is the highest mountain range in Ireland) horseriding, fishing and boating.
Many championship golf courses are nearby including Killarney, Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunion. The village of Beaufort is a few minutes by car, a short 5 mininute walk takes you to the Gap of Dunloe or you can take a jaunting car from the front door. The area has a host of fantastic restaurants, traditional pubs and musical entertainment.

"Pity About the Unfriendly Owners"
Spent 2 nights at this Cottage. it was very clean, well equiped, & we could'nt complain about anything in the cottage. The owners were however very unfriendly, not what we were used to at all in … More
I am sorry you thought I was unfriendly. As I state to all my guests when booking, I have relocated to Galway from Killarney this summer. This means I am unable to meet and greet. My care taker has met most arrivals this season. There are times she may be working or if a specific time is not given to me before hand she would not be standing at door waiting for you, but I do know she keeps trying to stop by to make sure everything is okay. If I had known you needed help with sightseeing I would have been happy to help. I am always available by phone or emails throughout your stay for questions regarding the cottage or surrounding area. When I dont hear from guests I assume everything is going okay for them.
