The property

Waterville 3 miles. A fantastic, detached property located in the coastal hamlet of Loher, just 3 miles from the lively town of Waterville, County Kerry.

Tastefully decorated and furnished with style and finesse, this wonderful Waterville cottage represents an exceptional Irish getaway for an extended family or group of friends.

A fitted kitchen leads to the dining area, which oozes quality, boasting leather chairs and a dining table.

Relax in the bright, spacious sitting room at this Waterville cottage by kicking back in a recliner, stoking up a roaring flame in the solid fuel stove and taking in your favourite show on the television.

Five comfortable bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities, including a wet room-style shower room, offer excellent sleeping accommodation.

The highlight of this Waterville cottage is undoubtedly the panoramic sea and mountain views, which stretch all the way to the Skellig Islands, and can be enjoyed from within the cottage, but are best experienced from the sunny patio area.

The cottage gets its name from the historic Loher stone fort, which dates from the 9th century and is just a stone's throw away.

The area is a hill walker's paradise with the cottage adjacent to the Kerry Way, while the shops, pubs and restaurants of Waterville are just a short drive away.

With the Ring of Kerry, Skellig Ring and a selection of golf courses and beaches available nearby, this Waterville cottage is sure to please.
