The County Kerry region
Co Kerry is known as the Kingdom for good reason. It has some of the most breathtaking scenery in Ireland. Visitors can drive the world-famous Ring of Kerry or explore the lesser-know Ring of Beara. Kerry is home to the MacGillicuddy Reeks, Ireland's highest mountain range so walking and climbing is popular. The Killarney Lakes and National Park are rich with heritage and scenery and there are good walking routes. Places to see include Dereen Gardens, Gleninchaquin Waterfall, the Black Valley and Torc Waterfall, all of which are within an easy drive of Wheatfield.
Wheatfield is situated on the Ring of Beara, 10km from the heritage town of Kenmare. Nearby attractions include Dereen Gardens, Gleninchaquin Waterfall, Star Sailing and Outdoor Adventure Centre. There is horse riding nearby and sailing and diving in Killmacillogue Harbour. There is excellent fishing, river lake and sea.

"With the most breathtaking view in the world, it's hard to tear yourself away"
I can't recommend Wheatfield highly enough - we had an incredible stay, and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.
The house offers stunning views of the Kenmare Bay, plus its amazing location nestled in the hillside means you're right in amongst the scenery yourself. A haven for walkers and wildlife, it's also a fantastic spot for just curling up in front of the windows with a book and a bottle of wine!
It's got everything you could need for all weathers, from the picnic bench outside to the wood-burning stove inside. Plus cosy beds and plenty of hot water... the only drawback is paying for the gas at the end of the week - our heating bill in January was pretty high!
Wheatfield would be fantastic for a full-on family holiday, but we had a great time just relaxing the two of us... however, we're already making plans to visit again. There's so much to see and do, from exploring Kenmare itself (and its many welcoming bars) to checking out the Ring of Kerry.
A genuinely fantastic trip, all thanks to the Veldhoen family and this incredible house they've built. See it for yourselves!
