Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Bridgets Cottage is a recently renovated traditional stone cottage on an elevated site with beautiful views down the valley towards the picturesque village of Sneem. Home to Bridget and John Sullivan and their family in 1901, the cottage was derelict for many years and used as a garden shed by the previous owners, the cottage has been restored to a lovely cosy little retreat.
The owners home is nearby if you need any assistance. The property is set on a 7 acre smallholding and fresh veg and eggs are available to buy in season.
The cottage has a walled sitting area to the side and back, with washing line, and a grassed area with a fantastic view across the valley and towards the mountain ridge behind, a perfect place to sit and relax. Outdoor chairs and tables and an open barbecue are provided.
A perfect place for artists, photographers and writers, and for anyone needing to lose themselves for a while.
A wi-fi signal is available if you need to contact the outside world. Signal strength is not always good due to location, but most of the pubs and cafes in Sneem offer free wi-fi for when the signal is weak here.
Cyclists and walkers can join the Kerry walking and cycle ways.
The lane accessing the property ends here, so no passing traffic to spoil your peace and quiet. Walkers can continue up through the forest beyond, and up onto the ridge.
Sikka deer and hare wander across the farm regularly.
Situated 4 miles from the village, it offers peace and quiet and an ideal base to explore the Iveragh peninsular.
Please ask the owner if you require transport to and from the village in the evening. Sneem has several pubs, some offering traditional Irish music to keep you entertained in the evening. There are several excellent cafes, tea shops and gift shops, and shops providing basic groceries. There is a post office in the village and an ATM in Christians Mace grocery shop.
There is a large workshop on the farm for motorcyclists and cyclists to carry out basic maintenance, and for covered parking if required.
Flexible changeover day and short stays where possible.
This property was built before wheelchair and disabled access were thought of, so unfortunately, due to steep stairs and steps, it is not suitable for anyone with limited mobility.
Kenmare is 15 miles away with bank facilities and a good range of shops, there is a bustling market on Wednesdays, and Saturdays in the summer.
Killarney is 30 miles away over the beautiful Molls Gap road. There are many festivals and Fairs during the year. Sneem has a Family festival in July, featuring the famous Wife carrying race, great fun to watch.
