Five bright and airy bedrooms complete the accommodation, where you can rest after a day of walking, cycling or sightseeing this stunning region.

The popular seaside village of Waterville lies along the breathtaking Ring of Kerry, which you can access from the doorstep, and in turn is part of Ireland’s spectacular Wild Atlantic Way, showcasing some of the most jaw-dropping coastal scenery you will ever come across.

The village is home to a charming selection of traditional pubs and seafood restaurants where you can happily while away an evening.

For the lover of the outdoors, there are two golf courses, a sandy beach and plenty of walks to discover, including the Kerry Way nearby.
