    “Situated on the Kerry & Skellig Rings: the elevated west-facing house offers excellent views from all rooms, especially of Valentia Island.”

    It is a perfect base for exploring the Kerry and Dingle peninsulas, Inch Strand is one hour away. For many this part of Ireland is its finest, with plenty to fill two weeks, and about as far west as you can go in Europe. Cahersiveen is a two mile walk 'along the back-road with nice views along the way, the town should satisfy all needs and hosts interesting bars, shops, cafes, and a quay. ...

    It is a perfect base for exploring the Kerry and Dingle peninsulas, Inch Strand is one hour away. For many this part of Ireland is its finest, with plenty to fill two weeks, and about as far west as you can go in Europe. Cahersiveen is a two mile walk 'along the back-road with nice views along the way, the town should satisfy all needs and hosts interesting bars, shops, cafes, and a quay. The house is also used for the owner's holidays so feels more like a home than some holiday lets and had everything we needed including some basic essentials and goodies on arrival. There is a powerful shower on each floor, the ground floor includes a bathroom with double+single bedroom that might suit persons with limited mobility. The sheep in the back yard, although lovely to see, were sensibly fenced off to avoid contact with humans. Most systems were quick to find and how-to-use, although on a general note the holiday-let industry would do well to learn that guests don’t want to spend hours searching for necessities and how they work. Unlike comm’s nightmares experienced all over Scotland last year, we were surprised to get 4g ‘everywhere’ and forever thankful the owners supplied good wifi: setting aside social media noise, some people have to be able to keep-in-touch with other worlds. Overall: good value, top location, all facilities, and easy communications with both Hogans and the owners. Highly recommended.

The property

Holding a rich and inviting feel, this retreat is ideal for families or friends to escape into a peaceful paradise.

Upon entering, you will be welcomed by a warm hallway which leads through to a cosy sitting room with leather seating, an open fire and a touch of tradition.

On the other side, there is a double bedroom with a single bed, hosting wooden floors, and great storage space that sweeps through to a Jack and Jill style en-suite with luxury fittings.

An open view of the garden landscape brings this room together nicely.

An open staircase then leads up to the next floor which showcases three double bedrooms that almost mirror each other, with fitted wardrobes, a delicate finish, and a countryside window view.

About the location

CAHERSIVEEN, COUNTY KERRY

Killarney 38 miles.

The lively coastal town of Cahersiveen, birthplace of Daniel O'Connell, is ideally situated aside the River Fertha, at the foot of the Beentee Mountain, in beautiful County Kerry. Renowned in the 1800s for the salting of Atlantic fish, today the town retains strong links with the ocean, boasting an excellent harbour and a superb marina offering sailing, trout and salmon fishing and deep-sea angling opportunities. Cahersiveen provides an eclectic mix of traditional pubs and modern venues, together with a host of cafés, restaurants and interesting craft and antique shops, whilst monthly street fairs present visitors with an ideal opportunity to peruse the colourful stalls of curiosities and local produce. Cahersiveen is the principle town of the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve making it a wonderful base for astronomers. Explore the nearby hidden coves, walk the Kerry Way, visit two stone forts, discover the fascinating archaeological remains at nearby Waterville, or take a short drive or ferry crossing to the lovely Valentia Island. Skellig Michael is also well worth a visit, it is one of two impressive sea crags set in the Atlantic Ocean and was also used as the setting for scenes in the Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. With plenty to see and do, you'll want to return to this fabulous location time and time again.
