This three storey house is spacious, bright and modern in finish. The Cottage consists of three bedrooms – A double with en suite, a second en suite bedroom which can be a double or a twin, plus a third double/twin bedroom which has a shower room adjacent. The back garden is enclosed and lovely for children.

However what we personally LOVE about the house is the location. It is literally a minutes walk to Kenmare Town with its wide variety of pubs & restaurants. Kenmare is a great place to socialise in. You can enjoy a bottle or two of wine, and just stroll back home.

The County Kerry region

Kenmare is known as the jewel in the Ring of Kerry and no wonder with its location between two of the most beautiful touring routes in Europe - the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara. These make for very enjoyable day trips from Kenmare.

Kenmare is a designated Heritage Town of Ireland and the town offers a huge selection of places of historical interest to visit. Even strolling around the town is itself a pleasure with Kenmare having received awards from Entente Floral and the award for the Tidiest Town in Ireland in the year 2000. Killarney is a 40 minute drive and Cork City is just over an hour's drive.


Kenmare lies approximately 30 minutes drive from a host of sandy beaches and it has a very pretty harbour from where you can swim, fish or take a trip on the "Seafari Cruise" to view the wildlife in the area.

Star Sailing & Adventure Centre

New to Kenmare is the wonderful Star Sailing & Adventure Centre situated on the shores of Kenmare Bay and surrounded by the Caha Mountains just a five minute drive from Kenmare Town Centre. The range of activities includes Sailing, Kayaking, Sea Kayaking, Windsurfing, Hillwalking, Boat Trips and much more. There is something to suit all the family.

Bike Hire

Located in the centre of Kenmare is Finnegan's Bike Hire and Toy Shop Tel: 00353 64 6641083


Kenmare boasts two super golf courses. The Ring of Kerry Golf Course is located two miles outside of the town and offers spectacular views of Kenmare Bay from the course itself and also its newly renovated Club House. Kenmare Golf Club is located in Kenmare Town and follows the shores of Kenmare Bay Estuary.


There are lots of great fishing spots to choose from around Kenmare including Clonee Lake, Kenmare Bay and the Black Valley. Permits can be obtained locally.

Hill Walking

The Kerry Way and Beara Way walking routes are ideal for those with an interest in trekking or you could even join the annual summer hike to Ireland's highest mountain, Carrauntouhil. The foothills of the famous MacGillycuddy Reeks are right on Kenmare's doorstep.


Kenmare and its vicinity offers some incredible dive spots and wrecks. You may even be lucky enough to come across a dolphin or two. Try-dives are available for beginners and advanced dives for the more experienced. For more information visit

Pony Trekking

Pony Trekking is the ideal way to explore the hidden treasures of Kenmare and its hinterland. Professional lessons are also available for beginners.

Other activities in the area include quad biking, pet farms, craft workshops and bicycle hire.


The town of Kenmare, noted for having the cleanest air in Europe, is a mecca for some of the finest restaurants in Ireland. You really will be spoilt for choice when it comes to dining out, from bar food to seafood and a range of other types of excellent restaurants to experience. The nightlife in Kenmare suits all ages and the hospitality with which you will be greeted is second to none. There is a great selection of pubs and late night bars to choose from with many featuring live music from traditional Irish to rock and modern styles.

"Home away from Home"

I stayed at this lovely house in May this year with my 2 toddlers, partner and the in laws. Its hard to get away on holiday with a 1 and 2 year old and actually go somewhere which is as easy to be as home. On arrival the lovely Miriam set up a couple of travelcots for my little ones and the house was already warm, despite our late arrival. We stayed for a week and so we made great use of the kitchen, cooking at home as well as enjoying some fantastic lunches and evenings out in Kenmare. The atmosphere of this little is fantastic and this really feels like ireland. Particularly loved Crowleys bar for old irish charm with impromtu music performances, and Foleys for a nice lunch, child friendly but grown up. Guiness and beef pie amazing.

We would definately return. we also had a little peek into the apartment next door - more like a small house actually, spread over 3 small floors. this would make a cool getaway for a larger group or a family who perhaps wanted slightly seperate accommodation for the grandparents, or teenagers maybe.

Fab holiday :)
