How to get there
How to get to Westcove
(There is no public transport, so a car is essential)
The nearest airport is ‘Kerry’, 20 minutes north of Killarney and 1½ hours drive from Westcove House. Ryanair fly there daily from Stansted Airport and there are also direct flights to Kerry Airport from Manchester and Luton. Cork Airport is further away, but with faster roads, driving time to the cottage is only about 2 ¼ hours. Many airlines offer flights to Cork, not only from London but from other airports in the UK and Europe (Shannon Airport is a good 3¼ hours drive away – further than it looks)
BY SEA: There is a choice of sailings from the South West of England to Rosslare, on the south-eastern tip of Ireland:- a) Stenaline – operate two daily 3½ hour crossings (all year) and two daily 1¾ hour high speed sailings (from March to September) from Fishguard. b) Irish Ferries – also operate twice daily crossings to Rosslare from Pembroke, which take 4 hours, but the driving time from London takes half an hour less than to Fishguard, and their cabins are much more comfortable.
Directions from Cork (approximately 2 1/4 hour drive)
Take the N22 Killarney Road, follow it until about 10 miles short of Killarney, where you turn left to Kenmare. In Kenmare (a good place to stop for provisions is Supervalu Supermarket), follow the signs to Waterville.
Ten miles after going through Sneem, you reach the small village of Castlecove.
For Pier Cottage
Follow the road straight through Castlecove for one mile and turn directly left, after passing some derelict buildings on your left. Keep left for a quarter mile or so and you come to the harbour.
Pier Cottage is the last cottage on the left before the pier.
