    “Charming, spacious, comfortable”
    One of the best rental places I have been to. Formerly part of the railway station, the house is full of character, it is cosy, warm, has quite a large kitchen with everything that's necessary. Plenty of room for a large family. Parking at the back of the house is very easy and perfectly safe. Close to the supermarket. ...

The property

A fantastic, semi-detached heritage house, dating back to 1888 with authentic period features, located in the County Kerry town of Listowel.

Built as the railway station serving Listowel, this well-furnished property has been converted to a private holiday home, making an excellent base for a group of family and friends to get together and explore the renowned County Kerry.

With four bedrooms, three upstairs and one downstairs, each offering a different sleeping arrangement, most needs will be catered for.

Also downstairs you will find a well-equipped kitchen, traditionally finished with two ranges, and a dining table in the middle, giving it a more communal feel by keeping everyone together while a tasty meal is being rustled up.

Once fed and watered, make your way into the sitting room with comfortable sofas and a woodburning stove, perfect for taking it easy while you share photos of your day’s adventures, making everyone at home jealous, and letting your dinner settle.

To the back you will find a garden with a decked area off to the side with furniture, perfect for relaxing with a well-earned drink as the day draws to an end.

You don’t have far to go to find yourself in the centre of Listowel, so there will be no arguments about who will be the designated driver should you wish to go out for a few drinks.

A little further afield you can find yourself making the most of the sun, sand and sea in Ballybunion, or practicing your golf swing on one of the nearby courses.

Why not take a trip to Tralee or a little further in the opposite direction will take you to the city of Limerick, where you can absorb the local culture with plenty of shops, pubs and restaurants for you to sample.

An excellent property with easy access to the Wild Atlantic Way, to be booked at once!
