There is an abundance of Sea Birds as well as the local wild Bird population. Also enjoy the spectacular sunsets which are a photographers dream.

From the beach, swim, fish off the rocks, or observe the wildlife in the rock pools. We have been lucky enough to have seen Sea Otters and Dolphins as well as the local Seals. It is possible to launch a canoe or small boat should you wish to bring one.

The Bull Rock Lighthouse can be seen in the distance on a clear evening 35 miles away.

If you love to walk, it is possible to explore the Island on foot and you will be breathing the cleanest air in Europe.

If you can tear yourself away from the Island, there is a small bar nearby in the local Country House Hotel or many Bars in nearby Sneem and Kenmare.

We recommend that you sample the amazing restaurants in Kenmare or try your hand at set dancing in the Blackwater Tavern which will be fun for all members of the family.

The County Kerry region

County Kerry, traditionally known as the 'kingdom', is situated in the extreme south-west of Ireland. Kerry has two contrasting types of terrain - the mountainous south with the Beara, Iveragh and Dingle peninsulas, and the smaller 'plains' area that stretches as far north as the Shannon estuary. Along the coast, sandy bays alternate with cliffs and rocky headlands. The famous Ring of Kerry has breathtaking scenery and is a haven for activity based holidays. Kilarney National Park has a distinctive combination of mountains, lakes, woods and waterfalls under ever changing skies gives the area a special scenic beauty.

There are so many things to see, to do, to explore, to experience in the surrounding area. . . from almost 2,000 archaeological sites, to more walking than you could fit into a year.

Wheather you enjoy sailing, angling, golf etc there is a wide range of activities for you to try and wherever you go you can be sure of a very warm welcome.


Rossmore Island lies between the picturesque town of Kenmare with its colourful houses, shops & restaurants serving gourmet food and the very pretty village of Sneem.

Kenmare is a haven of tranquillity, and breathtaking scenery in one of the most natural, unspoilt environments in Europe. Cradled in the heart of Kenmare Bay, the picturesque town of Kenmare is the perfect location from which to discover the South West of Ireland, linking the internationally famous Ring of Kerry with the rugged Ring of Beara.

"This is what heaven is like!"

This is not a 4 star, this is a 100 star. I never wanted to leave. I just wanted to stay in the
family room and watch the water and the tall grasses blowing in the wind.
Everything inside was top quality.
Very beautiful!

All we can say is WOW! What an outstanding property. The view is fantastic and the peace & quiet unbelievable. As one of us is a chef, we couldn't resist using the well stocked kitchen.
