Guest Reviews


    • “Excellent location”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “Wonderful ancient farm house cottage with great interior surrounded by owners farm and animals. Ideal location for Killarney, The Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsular and only ten minutes from Kerry International Airport, which when I last saw it 30 years ago was a field with a wind socket in it. Whilst the modernisation of the area is great for the locals I still prefer it as it was when Farranfore consisted of the Railway Station and a pub and nothing else.”

    • “If you like holidays on a farm, among animals and fields, this is the place to go! It is peaceful and the situation is very good to make tours in different directions to see the beautiful and manifold landscapes of County Kerry. The owners are very friendly and helpful and try to make the place as enjoyable as possible for their guests. If you have children, they will be happy about the piglets and sheep they are allowed to feed, and they have space inside and outside the old farmhouse.”

    Mrs Hanebutt-benz, Frankfurt / Main, May 2015

    • “I would defiantly go back to this cottage. The owner was very welcoming and can be seen daily feeding the livestock near to the cottage.”

About the location


Killarney 10 miles; Tralee 11 miles.

Historically known as An Fearann Fuar, meaning 'the cold land’, the village of Farranfore is nestled half way between Tralee and Killarney, County Kerry. Farranfore is the ideal central location for your Kerry holiday with easy access from the airport and its proximity to so many Kerry attractions. The village is only a short drive from Tralee, which offers a great selection of bars, pubs, restaurants and shops to tempt visitors, and is home to one of Ireland's famous international festivals, The Rose of Tralee. Tralee Aqua Dome is one of the largest water parks in Ireland, while for those who enjoy cultural experiences the museum and theatre will not disappoint. You can take a short drive in the opposite direction, to the delightful town of Killarney, where Irish culture can be experienced around every corner. The town of Killarney offers a host of amenities and attractions, including the fabulous Killarney National Park and world famous Killarney Lakes, or play a round of golf on one of town's courses, home to the Irish Open in 2010 and 2011. Farranfore is also the perfect starting point to tour the Ring Of Kerry, a scenic route with sensational views that can only be seen on the Emerald Isle, or visit the Macgillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s largest mountain range, and a tour of the Dingle Peninsula is also an enjoyable day out where you can take a boat to see Fungi the Dolphin.
