About Edward Kelliher

I live in Ireland with my wife and children. This holiday home was built in the last few years. We decided to build in Kerry because of the beautiful scenery, mountains and lakes and also because of its proximity to the sea. We, as a family, spend a lot of our free time there.

Edward Kelliher purchased this house in 2008

Why Edward Kelliher chose Ring of Kerry

I chose to build in Kerry because it's my native area and my family and roots are there. Over the years and because of travelling, I had come to appreciate far more what my own native area had to offer in terms of scenery, a peaceful and relaxing location and healthy leisure activities.

What makes this house unique

I find the property is an ideal base for discovering not only the Killarney area but the whole Kerry region and the beaches, lakes and mountains are easily accessible. The towns with their entertainment and festivals, such as Tralee and its Rose of Tralee festival, are within short driving distance.



The long, beautiful beach of Rossbeigh is a 25 minute drive. As well as good swimming Rossbeigh beach provides hang gliding and wind surfing. There is another fine beach in Dooks and a golf links - a 20 minutes drive. One reaches the coast near Killorglin 6km away and one can follow the coast road passing by Cromane, Glenbeigh, Kells, Cahirsiveen, Waterville and back to Killarney, still on the coast road, through Sneem and Kenmare. This coastal road is the scenic Ring of Kerry.


Shannon Airport is 100 km, Cork Airport is a distance of 100 km, Kerry Airport is 30 km. Ringaskiddy Ferry Port is a 105 km and Rosslare Ferry Port is 250 km. The town of Tralee, the Kerry capital is 32 km, and the town of Castleisland is 35km. The use of car is strongly recommended and car hire is readily available.


Killorglin town is 6km, Beaufort village is 6km, the Gap of Dunloe is 10 km, Killarney is 15km, and Rossbeigh beach is 20 km and Dooks beach is 15km. Tralee town is 30 km and Castleisland is 35 km. The local golf course is 2 km and the Magillicuddy Reeks is 2 km. The Cappanalea outdoor adventure center is 10 km.

Further Details:

One can shop in all the above mentioned villages and towns. Killorglin has a choice of shops, supermarkets, and bars. Killarney, Castleisland and Tralee are excellent shopping towns. There are banks available in all these towns. The local post office is in Beaufort as well as two little supermarkets. There are three bars and meals are available there also. Kate Kearney’s Cottage at the Gap of Dunloe is a well known bar and restaurant. There are at least 3 Hotels in the Beaufort area, Dunloe Hotel, Hotel Europe and Aghadoe Heights Hotel. Killarney offers many bars and hotels with music, dancing and shows. There are jaunting car rides to well known sightseeing spots such as Ross Castle, Torc Waterfall, Muckross House and Gardens, the Traditional Farms and Killarney’s National Park. There are bus tours of the Ring of Kerry from here. One can take a jaunting car ride from Killarney to the Gap of Dunloe, then take a pony ride through the pass to the Black Valley and take a boat ride down the lakes back to the town of Killarney. There are two Horse Racing meetings in Killarney – mid-July and mid-August each year. One can also take a tour of the Dingle Peninsula from here.

Couldn't ask for better

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely recommend spending your holiday in Co. Kerry but more so, we recommend staying at this property.. The owners are so lovely and friendly, and couldn't be more helpful. The property is clean and tidy and has every you could need from kitchenware to bedding. Its such a lovely quiet area and that's what we needed, but only about 5 mins drive to nearest shop/post office and across the road from that is The Inbetween (public house/restaurant) - such friendly owners there too, as well as great food!

The house is only about 10-15 from the town of Kilorglin and Killarney (opposite directions)

There's so much to do here, we usually packed a picnic in the morning and headed off til late evening (with 4 children all under 5) They had a brilliant holiday, as did we. We are from Co. Derry and this holiday/stay was well worth the travel. We will definitely be back in Co. Kerry and we will definitely be back to stay here too!

Another Great Holiday in Ireland

  • 5 of 5

Our Family party of 6 were all extremely impressed with this property as our holiday Base for a fortnight in Ireland. Brilliantly situated close to The Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Killarney this house was a great place from which to visit all of the wonders of Kerry.

The house is spacious both inside and out, and very comfortable and well maintained.

The owner, Edward was extremely welcoming and was kind enough to answer any questions we had, very promptly, in the months leading up to our stay.

This was our best stay yet in Ireland and the property played a very large part in that.

If your thinking about this property for your vacation please don't hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed.
