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 Beaufort

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.

Comfortable, spacious, well appointed with everything you need for a holiday.

  • 5 of 5

Our tenth visit to the area and this property certainly did not disappoint, one of, if not the best we have stayed in. We were made very welcome by Edward, who was an endearing, generous and engaging host. Lovely quiet rural location, which was good. Varied and interesting bird life, with birdsong, sheep, lambs and cattle as a gentle background chorus, making everything most relaxing. Everyone we met was very friendly, helpful and interesting, including those we casually spoke with about fishing in the local tributary of the river Laune. With easy access to Killarney and Killorglin - the salmon smokery in Killorglin has some of the finest smoked salmon, from the local river Laune. Would we go back? Most definitely.

Spacious new 4 bedroom house

  • 5 of 5

Often when properties say "sleeps 8", it's only if half are sleeping on the sofa. Not so here - 4 large bedrooms, 2 en-suite and 2 sharing a bathroom, mean it will comfortably house 4 couples. With 2 living rooms as well as kitchen/dining, we found that our 2 couples used only half the house. We were a little nervous because the price was so cheap, but apart from a slightly remote location (which wasn't a problem at all for us), it has everything - including a washing machine and plenty of space to dry wet clothes, if needed. The furnishings are slightly Spartan (my wife said "it's furnished by a man"), but very comfortable. And all the appliances and plumbing worked well. Two televisions (to go with the 2 living rooms), but we had no need of them.

As for the location - it's 10 minutes to either Beaufort, with a couple of good pubs, or Killorglin, with decent shops (we did all our food shopping at the Eurospar there) and more eating options. Killarney is 20 minutes, but we never felt the need to visit. You obviously need a car, but unless you want to be within walking distance of shops/pubs/entertainment, I highly recommend this place.

An Excellent House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week at Edward's fine house and found it to be everything we needed. Tons of room for large families and absolutely palacial for just the two of us!

Superb throughout with all the facilities you could want. The kitchen was also great for us as we always do a fair bit of cooking while we are away. Very well tended gardens, would be super for kids running around.

The area is very quiet with little traffic, just what we needed for a weeks break. Killorglin is just down the road for most essentials with Killarney 20 minutes away.

We found so much to do you would really want a fortnight here to see everything. Edward was very helpful with local knowledge and a real gent to boot as well. We would highly recommend this house to anyone interested in coming to this area.

Great house in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in August and it's a great base for touring round from Killarney to Dingle you won't be lost for places to visit! The house is in a nice quiet rural area,it is clean and well equipped for a family with comfortable beds, lots of bathrooms and plenty of space inside and out for a family. Edward and his wife are the owners, they are very friendly and communication before we arrived was good also.

All in all we had a great weeks holiday there!
