Further details outdoors

The large enclosed garden is a childrens' paradise with a playset, playhouse, goalposts and meandering paths providing lots of opportunity for adventures. There is comfortable outdoor furniture to enjoy the magnificent views of the waves crashing in Kenmare Bay. The front porch provides a wonderful sun trap to enjoy your morning coffee surrounded by mountains with the occasional hare bounding past. During the summer months guests are welcome to pick any of the organically grown salads and herbs for their own use from the large vegetable garden. The surrounding landscape has proved inspirational to many artists and writers. This cottage is the ideal artist's retreat. If you wish an easel and canvas can be provided for your use. This cottage is a retreat from the frenetic demands of everyday and so we decided against having Wi-Fi, there is Wi-Fi availability locally if needs must.
During July and August the cottage is only available for a minimum rental period of two weeks.

Location description from owner

The Province of Munster region

Co. Kerry offers the visitor unrivalled natural beauty. Facing the Atlantic ocean parts of Kerry are unspoilt, a timeless land of enchantment and mystery.

Kerry features many white sandy beaches, rocky inlets and stunning pennisulas, with plenty of opportunities for water sports, golf, sea and game fishing, walking, cycling and boating tours.

Kerry has a fascinating history with ancient stone forts, standing stones, rock art, crumbling castles and historic houses.

Skelligs Michael, a day boat trip off the Kerry coast, is a UNESCO world heritage site, renowned for its rugged beauty and wildlife.

The beautiful town of Kenmare is a delight to visit with an abundance of craft shops, restaurants and pubs.

Valentia Island is well worth visiting, taking in the Skellig Ring and stopping off in the chocolate factory in St Finan's Bay, Ballinskelligs.

A trip to Derrynane harbour offers a great location for canoeing, sailing, windsurfing and swimming. The mass path to Bunavalla, which is part of the Kerry Way, is one of Ireland's nicest coastal walks.

20km to the east is the beautiful village of Sneem, which has a number of cafes, restaurants, shops and pubs on offer.

“Delightful house in quiet surroundings in a charming part of the country.”

Reviewed 28 Feb 2014

For those who would like holiday accommodation which guarantees a restful stay, Staigue Cottage will fit the bill. The house is comfortable and tastefully furnished and fitted out, while the gardens are full of interest for adults and children alike. Where else will you find a holiday home which provide the heart lifting sight of live wild hares calling around to say hello, the setting is obviously rugged, and the impressive stone fort nearby is an abiding reminder that you are in a place which has an age old importance. Because the cottage is a little off the beaten track, transport would be desirable.

“A Little Bit of Paradise in Kerry”

Reviewed 6 Aug 2012

The cottage was amazing, we had a fabulous time in a great location with so much to do for both adults and children. The outdoor space is great for children with everything they need to explore and enjoy themselves. The views from the cottage are truly breathtaking and I have been recommending this cottage to everyone I know. We hope to return again soon! There is everything you would ever need in the cottage, every last thing has been thought of by the owners. The decor and overall presentation of the cottage is wonderful and has a lovely homely feeling.

“Spacious family friendly house set in beautiful surroundings with stunning views”

Reviewed 3 May 2012

This is a lovely traditional family house with a large safe kid friendly garden area. Its location is perfect for touring and exploring the Ring of Kerry and it is within easy reach of plenty of beautiful beaches. The house is practically on the Kerry Way so you are spoilt for choice when it comes to walks and the views are worth every minute of it. All in all if you just want to get away for some peace and quiet or you have an energtic family that need to be occupied this house has it all. I would have no hesitation in recommending it and we will definitly be back.
