About the Owner

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.

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.

Fantastic place to explore the Ring of kerry

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week as a family of 5 as I was cycling the Ring of Kerry. It's about 15/20 mins drive to Killarney and less to Killorglin. The house is spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious and well kitted out with everything you might need, The kitchen in particular is well stocked with utencils. The Beaufort Inn down the road (5 mins drive) has great food. It's lovely and quiet, with only a few sheep around. The property owner was very helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to family and friends. In fact, the next time we are in town we will be staying here!

Great house, location and WiFi ;-)

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house for a week at the end of April 2016 with five people, so we had lots of room. The house is beautiful, and so are the surroundings. It has everything you want it to have, including super fast WiFi (important these days! ;-) The owners are friendly and helpful. Can recommend to anyone. Would love to return some day!

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.

From the Owner

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.
