About the home
The house is located 3 miles west from the vibrant village of Glenbeigh, at the end of a secluded unsurfaced cul-de sac which adjoins a public footpath about 250 metres to the coast. This footpath was originally used to access the shore line for harvesting Carrageen moss, a former cottage industry.
Knockatinna is 1.5 mile by car from the well known Blue Flag sandy beach at Rossbeigh with its new children's playground and sports area, horse riding, surfing etc. The footway at the bottom of the drive offers an amazing alternative route to Rossbeigh beach by foot. The house is located on the 'Kerry Way' with well documented local walks directly from the house, including Coomersaharn Lake - www.kerryway.com.
The house has been recently constructed with all modern conveniences. It sleeps 4 plus one baby or toddler. It is surrounded by lawn, with ample parking and access to a further 3 acres overlooking Dingle Bay and Peninsula.

We really enjoyed our stay at Knockatinna and this was enhanced by good weather (which always helps). The cottage was one of the best we have stayed at - clean, very well equipped and set in beautiful and quiet surroundings. It was a great location to explore the Ring of Kerry and especially the fantastic beaches. Plenty of places to visit and walks nearby. The owner's parents live just half a mile from the cottage and we were kindly invited to visit one evening (partaking in Kathleen's legendary 'Irish Coffees' which was worth the trip alone!). We would certainly recommend this cottage to family and friends.

I stayed in Knockatinna with a friend and our children. It is a beautiful, spacious house, and is also extremely well equipped. We loved the stream in the garden, and the horses in the neighbouring... more

I miss Knockatinna already, having spent a lovely two weeks in its embrace! It's truly in the country, but only a five minute drive from a delightful village (Glenbeigh - with several wonderful pubs, including the Olde Glenbeigh, with origins dating back to the late 1700's).
The house was truly outfitted for "self-catering", with all kitchen accoutrements on hand. Linens, towels, etc., were amply furnished. The house is well heated, but for chill evenings, two fireplaces add to the charm of the place.
From Knockatinna we toured the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Penninsula (greeting Fungie, the friendly Dolphin in Dingle Bay), Blarney Castle, Cashel of the Kings and Cork City as well as Bunratty, Durty Nellie's and the unbelievable Cliffs of Moher. We enjoyed spectacular beaches, the Bog Museum, classic Irish farms and pastures, pristine lakes, and of course, embracing Irish hospitality served up by John and Kathleen O'Shea and their fabulous daughter, Laura. All made for a wondrous holiday which we would love to repeat as soon as possible.
