The property

Newmarket 3 miles. Set in an idyllic rural location and surrounded by unspoilt Irish countryside is Kestrel Hall, a fantastic detached property just three miles from the town of Newmarket, County Cork. Built to a high specification and beautifully presented throughout, this Newmarket cottage offers bright, modern accommodation for any group and represents the opportunity to get away from it all in a relatively undiscovered region of the Emerald Isle. Boasting five spacious bedrooms, two with en-suite facilities, this Newmarket cottage oozes quality. The spacious kitchen leads onto an equally-ample dining area, perfect for mealtimes, while the adjoining conservatory takes advantage of the evening sun - the ideal spot to relax with a glass of wine after dinner. Children, or simply the young at heart, can also experience hours of fun in the top-floor games room with pool table. Enjoying magnificent views over Lisdangan Oak Wood, the property owes its name to the kestrels that can often be seen soaring over the treetops. Take a stroll through the wood, or drop a line and see what bites in the crystal-clear waters of the freshwater stream that meanders through the property's eight acres of land. Locally, the town of Newmarket offers a selection of shops, pubs and amenities with Irish traditional music available year-round. Additionally, this Newmarket cottage makes an excellent touring base with the popular tourist locations of Killarney and Cork City as well as the Blue Flag beach at Ballybunion around an hour's drive away.

    • “Incredible view of Irish countryside with nice accomodations”

    • “We used the house as a central point for our travels to Cork, Dingle, Cashel, Killarney and Limerick and it worked out perfectly for us. The house was perfect in terms of size for us (we had 7 however it sleeps 10) and we never even made it up to the 3rd floor game room which was huge. The solarium was very nice to sit in and just soak in the sun and the views from the front of the house were magnificent. I would definitely recommend it for use staying locally or traveling around as we did. Town of Newmarket has a few nice pubs that we visited as well. On the clear nights we could see thousands of stars. You can't beat the price for what is provided.”

    • “Great House - remote location”

    • “We stayed at Kestrel Hall in July 2015. The house was excellent, so much space in Irish housing compared to UK. It was clean and tidy and provisioned with all the equipment you need although the kitchen is looking a bit worn around the edges. Slight niggles were that the TV is quite an old model and had no reception as someone had removed the European adaptor plug for the Freeview tuner. I had to go out and buy one. As it turned out there were only a couple of channels available anyway so the teens gave up on TV. Ha Ha. Big disappointment (and only one apart from the daily rain) was that the website gave the impression of 8 acres of landscaped land around the house. There wasn't. The main field was rented out for cows to graze in and had gone to being an overgrown cowfield fenced off with electric fencing. We were told that we could access it by jumping the fence but didn't fancy that. As we'd mainly picked this place for the land so that we could do some training with our young cockerspaniel it didn't work for us. We couldn't let her off the lead in the small garden as we couldn't be sure she'd start worrying the cattle either. That said, my wife absolutely loved the conservatory/solarium and the views over the 'valley'. Me too. Being where it is and a bit remote, it's a fair drive to the coastal tourist places but well worth it. Took the dog out an boat trip at Dingle to see Fungi the dolphin. For anyone looking for a takeaway meal, head to Kanturk for a Chinese meal or an Indian meal (both on same road) but be prepared to do a bit of reheating on your return. Newmarket had a pretty decent supermarket and there was a Tesco in Mallow.”

About the location


Mallow 19 miles; Killarney 30 miles.

Founded in the 17th century, the County Cork town of Newmarket is located in an area rich in history, and owes much of its popularity to its proximity to the River Blackwater, a renowned salmon fishing river. A typical market town, Newmarket boasts a selection of shops, pubs and restaurants with traditional Irish music sessions weekly. On the edge of the town is Shreelawn Wood where Mylons Cave, a small cave steeped in local folklore and tradition, can be found. The highest village in Ireland, Meelin, is also nearby. The town is easily accessible from Cork and Kerry airports and is just an easy drive to many of the south-west’s leading tourist attractions such as Blarney Castle, the Lakes of Killarney and the famous Ring of Kerry.
