The County Kerry region
Kerry is known nationally as The Kingdom. It's mountains and seascapes are enviable. The people welcome visitors. The weather is variable with predominately south westerly breezes that means it is usually warm, we are in the Gulf Stream.
Sometimes it is wet but rain can be the 'soft' rain that hardly wets you. You can have three seasons in a day! We also enjoy the sun. Kenmare has an Irish name of Neidin, translated this means Little Nest. It fits as we are nestled in the mountains. Look up County Kerry 'Smiles' TV Commercial on UTube; all these places are local to us.
We like to personally welcome you to Killaha Height. We live 200 yards away further along the private drive, which enables us to provide you with local information according to your needs.
Killaha is just two miles from the town of Kenmare. It is situated on a hill, opposite the spectacular Macgillycuddy's Reeks, which includes Carrauntoohil Ireland's highest mountain, and overlooking the Kenmare Bay estuary. The views, skies and sunsets are both unrivaled and breathtaking.
The local pub, 'The Sailors Bar' is a mile away, or a very pleasant twenty minute walk along the country lane. It serves lovely fresh local food and is recommended on Trip Adviser with a five star rating.
Star Outdoors Kenmare is an outdoor and water sports centre just two miles away on the coast road. They offer activities for both children and adults and provide all necessary equipment for a fun day out. They also have a restaurant and bar, children's playground and ice cream parlour.

There is a wealth of fabulous gourmet restaurants, cafe's, bars and pubs. Many of the restaurants and pubs provide music often performed by local musicians, both traditional and contemporary. People join in and sing for pleasure and not because they have had a drink!

The Carnegie Theatre is situated behind the library on Shelbourne Street. Their program is wide and varied and worth visiting their site before your holiday.
