Description from owner


Westcove House is an early Georgian manor house nestled in southern tip of the famous 'Ring of Kerry', overlooking the beautiful Kenmare estuary & with lovely views of the mountains beyond. Inside the central hallway with its high ceilings, you can immediately feel the character and sense the history of this unique home, which is an eclectic mix of past and present owners but with all the modern conveniences of modern living including internet connection.

The house comfortably sleeps 10 in 2 double rooms, 2 twin rooms, 2 adjoining single rooms and 5 bath shower rooms. Our spacious and fully equipped kitchen has a large range cooker, fridges,freezers, a microwave & 2 dishwashers. From the 18th century hand painted hunting lodge furniture, to the many Chinese and Irish artefacts/paintings of the current owners, Westcove is much more than the usual 'holiday rental' . Whether you simply wish to explore this part of Kerry, walk, fish, golf, write or come together with family and/or friends, Westcove is the perfect retreat from the hustle and bustle of life. Enjoy meals in our elegant dining room overlooking the harbour (delicious catering options available!) Relax with a drink by open fire in the sitting room, or sit out on the terrace taking in the Atlantic air and watch the boats, or our herd of Soay sheep at play, against a backdrop of ever-changing light and colour flickering on the sea and mountains beyond.

Tenants of Westcove House may also use the games room and small gym/sauna, both of which are shared with tenants of The Stables but have their own external entrances.

Please note: For larger groups, Westcove House can be booked with The Stables (listing number 46961), sleeping up to 21; with Garden Cottage (listing number 101215), sleeping up to 15 or for all 3 properties sleeping up to 26, see listing number 101501.

Very Good

“A Jewel on the Ring of Kerry”

Reviewed 16 Aug 2012

We rented the entire property - the House, Cottage, Stables and Pier Cottage - for an Irish heritage (American) family reunion of more than 40 family members. The high quality of the accommodations, the incomparable beauty of the Ring of Kerry and the warm hospitality provided by the staff and local community was magical and far exceeded our expectations. We planned numerous events at the House and excursions with the help of the Westcove staff who provided excellent service and useful local intel.
