A shower room is adjacent to both bedrooms. There is also a utility room with sink, washing machine and tumble drier. The stairs lead up to a twin bedroom with its own shower room – both are small but comfortable and full of character. Garden Cottage is usually available to rent on its own although during high season it may not be available until we know that it is not needed as an addition to Westcove House and/or The Stables. (See listing for Westcove Lettings) as it is popular for large groups or when there are more singles required (e.g golfers etc.) Garden Cottage is also perfect for shorter weekend breaks, especially in the winter. These are usually not bookable more than one month in advance. Please contact the owner for more details.

Further details

Dogs are usually welcome, but not in the bedrooms or on the sofas and chairs please! Also be very careful and keep them on leads at all times when walking in the hills when there are sheep around.It is possible to add a folding bed to the upstairs bedroom, so 3 children can share this cosy attic room...

Further details indoors

Bed linen and towels are provided as are electric blankets for all beds. There are wall heaters in the bedrooms and heated towel rails in shower rooms.Electricity is included throughout the year - Katharine Casey, our housekeeper, will explain how the underfloor heating works - please use as 'if it were your own' as electricity is very expensive in Ireland!.

She also has a good selection of delicious home cooked freezer food available - please check catering link on our own website - for details....perfect after a day touring, walking, golfing, fishing or shooting!

Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

In Kerry, known as 'the Kingdom',sandy bays alternate with cliffs & rocky headlands jutting into the wild Atlantic, while inland there are serene lakes, glens & river valleys carved during the ice-age.The scenery is constantly changing as cloud shadows move with the wind across the dramatic landscape. The colours are amazing! Patchworks of green/brown boglands dotted with purple heather& dancing white bog cotton,roads flanked with fuschia clad hedgerows...then in winter deep purple mountains blend into rust/copper & even more dramatic skies & seas.

At any time of year, Westcove is an ideal base from which to explore.Travel the 'Ring of Kerry'inland to the town of Killarney with its magnificent lakes,parkland,lively restaurants,bars and shops. Each town/village you pass through will have its own 'festival' at some stage during the summer – such as Waterville's Charlie Chaplin festival, Cahersiveen's Celtic festival & Killorglin's Puck Fair (where a goat is crowned king for 3 days!).

Travel north to Kerry's Gaelic speaking Dingle peninsula & see its most famous resident, Funghi,a wild bottlenosed dolphin who has made the bay his home. Travel east to Kenmare - a shopper's paradise with a brilliant market on Wednesdays ... then south over spectacular mountain passes to Bantry Bay. A botanist's dream, the Kerry & West Cork area is dotted with wonderful tropical gardens, especially beautiful in May & June.

A boat trip to Skellig Islands,a UNESCO World Heritage site is a must! Rising majestically from the sea, Skellig Michael towers 218m above sea level and on the summit of this awe-inspiring rock is you will find perfectly preserved beehive huts, part of a 6th century monastic settlement. On the spectacular Small Skelligs 23,000 pairs of gannet nest on every available ledge making it the second largest gannet colony in the world.

Kerry is a walker's paradise ... from gentle strolls along lovely sandy beaches to more serious hikes over craggy hills. In the Castlecove area,the famous 'Kerry Way' walk takes you along the ridge of hills from Waterville to Kenmare & is well signed, but still wonderfully unspoiled. For the more adventurous,the clean Atlantic waters and miles of beaches are perfect for all kinds of water-sports such as surfing, windsurfing, sailing, canoeing and diving. Numerous water-sport centres offer activities for all levels & activities - most run summer camps during the summer months - the one in Derrynane is nearest to you.

Horseriding and pony trekking is available nearby in Caherdaniel while golfers will enjoy the challenge of the 5 excellent and varied golf courses within a 45 min. drive of Westcove. If fishing is more your thing, the warm Atlantic drift ensures a variety of species (over 50) & pollution free waters make for rich fishing grounds. Salmon, trout and sea angling are all available locally. During the winter, challenging shooting over the wild stretches of bogland for woodcock and snipe can be arranged. Irish gun licences must be obtained in advance.

Wherever you are in Kerry you will find excellent and varied restaurants offering delicious seafood & quality local produce. The convivial atmosphere of the Irish pub is legendary & many serve great value home-cooked food. The whole family can be assured of a very warm welcome.Kerry people are known for their wit & stories... you will be drawn into conversation with the locals so enjoy making new friends the 'craic' (fun) & stories. Don't forget to catch a live music session some evening

Caherdaniel

There is plenty to see and do in and around Caherdaniel. Visit DERRYNANE HOUSE & NATIONAL PARK, ancestral home of one of Ireland's leading historical figures, Daniel O' Connell known as 'The Liberator'. A 19th century politician, Daniel championed the cause of the Irish in the British parliament and succeeded in achieving Catholic Emancipation, his house and grounds' have been preserved and are open to the public in the summer. The house is surrounded by spectacular sub-tropical gardens & the lovely tea-rooms have an irresistible selection of home-made cakes. Don't forget to pick up a map of the 'Fairy Trail' and see how many 'fairy houses' you can discover in the gardens!

In Caherdaniel stop for a Guinness at Freddy's – a well known local pub which has been there forever, or go to The Blind Piper – a younger atmosphere and excellent food. In summer, there's a bustling indoor & outdoor market in the Community Centre between 10 and 12.30 on Friday mornings with lots of local produce and crafts. There is also an excellent food market on Sundays.

The largest & finest & arguably the best example of a pre-Christian ring fort in Ireland, Staigue Fort is less than 15 mins drive away. It is worth a visit, especially on a clear day, when the views out over the Atlantic are breathtaking. Even older than is is the Tetrapod track on Valentia...of international importance, this series of footprnts of a tetrapod is the first fossil record of an amphibian animal in the world.

Of course there are numerous lanes to wander and cycle along or take in the sea air on the beautiful beaches and dunes of Derrynane. There are also a couple of excellent, slightly more challenging walks you can try, starting from Westcove itself.
