The County Kerry region

The Region of Co. Kerry is also known as the Kingdom. Standing on top of any of Kerry magical Mountains you will understand why Kerry is called the Kingdom. Mountains, fields, lakes and rivers that stretch for miles and lead you to Dingle Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. If viewing this beautiful county by day wasn't enough, wait until night time! Kerry holds one of only 3 Gold Awards in the World for its Dark Skies Reserve.


Glenbeigh is perfectly located for exploring this majestic county. This beautiful cottage sits at the first point of the Ring of Kerry where you can see the sea! This coast line is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, the longest coastal drive in the world! And it is the Celtic folklore location of the Land of Eternal Youth know in Irish as Tir Na Nog.

"Our favorite spot, relax in adorable cottage, affordable too, don't miss this one!"

Pros, really cute inside, very comfy, big! Loved the dishes!Comfy couch, lots books, Irish films, really great shower with endless hot water! Loved visiting with Joan, so friendly and helpful, left fl… More

Thank you kindly for your comments. I have heard that you were the most wonderful guests from the caretaker.
I thank you and appreciate your comment on the cove as I have become aware from other guests that the word 'cove' conjures up different images. I will immediately choose a more descriptive meaning as it was never my intention to mislead and certainly not to disappoint.
As other guests have derived such pleasure from this leisurely stroll I feel it would be wrong not make visitors aware of all the amenities close by. I will however set about taking more appropriate photographs.
Thank you again for your kind words and comments and we would be delighted to welcome you again anytime.
All the best

"A little gem in the Emerald Isle"

Thank you for your kind words and I am so glad that you overall enjoyed your stay. I do apologies that the road bothered you. I appreciate you letting me know as this is the first time that this has been brought to my attention.
I regret that the cove was a disappointment to you and will select a more suitable description as it was not my intention to mislead. A cove is what this area is known as locally and I appreciate you highlighting that it is not as everyone would imagine.
Thank you again for your comments.

All the best
