"Superb tranquil location with a wonderful family to look after you"

beautiful scenery, tranquil location and a wonderful family to look after you. All you'd expect in ireland. We immediately booked for the next year. We were two young families and the house had more than enough space for the nine of us. We loved the walks along the estuary into town and i particularly like the run into town and back along the estuary. kenmare is beautiful and this is wonderful place to visit it from. See you in october!

"Relaxing at Roughty Bridge House"

I would like to advise all who need a getaway from it all, to take time out and stay at the Roughty bridge lodge. You will not find a more perfect surrounding if you wish to melt into the Irish countryside. This lodge is a couple of miles outside the lovely Market town of Kenmare, At Kenmare night life is u to you, Irish music abounding in most pubs and good food all around.

This place is secluded, has plenty of space in the accommodation for the entire family or you can just spend time with the wife and live in half the house. The view is fantastic, don't be put off by the large accommodation if you are a small group. Relax away from the world and stroll along surrounding country lanes overlooking Kenmare sound, and further towards the bay area, you need a car for sight seeing and lots to see if you like the countryside and the waterside. Nights in in front of the log fire, logs and peat all supplied by the owners who are there around the corner to help if required. Nellie and Peter thanks for a great break.

A great holiday.
