  • "Upper Haven is a great place to stay, Eyeries is nice to visit."

    The Beara peninsula is wonderful but you need to have a decent car to go on the smaller roads

  • "Our whole family had a wonderful holiday in Upper Haven, the photos of the house and of the views do not do justice to this lovely home in such an amazing location."

    Cathy, Paul and their daughter Fiona couldn't have been more helpful, especially helping us find a trustworthy mechanic when we had car trouble. We hope to return soon with my elderly parents for another relaxing stay.

  • "A brilliant, fantastic holiday."

    This beautiful house is a home away from home. It has everything you need for a family holiday, and the views are simply amazing, surrounded by the amazing changing colours of Autumn, really nice friendly neighbours and the locals are so kind and helpful. A great place for some amazing walks and the sunsets were out of this world. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "Fantastic house, spacious and fully equipped."

    Great location, friendly neighbours. Felt very relaxed and comfortable there. Kids loved all the books, games available for the evenings and the binoculars to look at the stunning views. Highly recommend.

  • "We booked early in the year and fortunetly had 2 full weeks on the Beara Peninsular."

    The cottage was more than adequate with 4 bedrooms and 2 baths with showers. Cathy snd her husband were extremly helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. With such a roomy house and beautiful view of Kenmare Bay and convenient access to Castletownbere we can recommend Upper Haven cottage to anyone wishing to explore the West Cork and Kerry area, from Bantry to Kenmare in quiet comfort. Thanks to the Hartnetts. Richard & Denise H.

The property

Enveloped by verdant fields backed by rolling hills and with access to the lovely town of Eyeries close by, is Upper Haven.

This delightful bungalow offers families, friends and couples the chance to get away-from-it-all and discover peace and tranquility, with views towards the sea and plenty of space to relax inside.

Set within the wonderful region of County Cork in Ireland, you have secluded beaches, watersports activities and fabulous walking country all within easy reach.

The well-equipped kitchen is fitted in a country cottage fashion, with a dining table and seating, so you can take the weight off you feet as you prepare a delicious meal for the family.

There is also a shower room and utility housing laundry facilities, just off from here.

As well as the shower room, you have a bathroom, ideal for when all you crave is a hot soak in the tub, on return from a long trek over The Beara Way.

Down the corridor is a bright and airy living room with dual aspect and a woodburning stove set within a lovely surround, adding warmth to those cold winter evenings.

If nothing takes your fancy on TV, you can simply chat about the day you've had over a cup of tea.

Or if you want some quiet time to yourself, move through to the extra dining area in the hall and take in the magnificent views across a patchwork of fields.

Slide open the glass doors on a balmy afternoon and read your favourite book outside, enjoying the natural surroundings with a cold drink.

You have four bedrooms to choose from at the end of the day including three doubles and a twin, perfect for larger groups.

Outside is the garden, with fields at the back where sheep like to graze.

You are welcome to bring along your four-legged friends for a holiday of their own, but be mindful that the garden is not enclosed.

Choose from many activities to keep you entertained in the area such as, canoeing, sea angling and kayaking, as well as a plethora of walking and cycling routes to suit different strengths.

Take a boat trip to explore Bear Island, bask on quiet beaches and admire the picturesque scenery each way you turn.

A lovely hideaway in County Cork.

Within easy reach is Kenmare, an interesting town full of character and colour, with long winding streets providing the backdrop for farmers' markets, artists' galleries, lovely little boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Ireland! Other nearby attractions include Ireland's only cable car, which departs from Ballaghboy on the tip of Beara Peninsula and leads to the peaceful Dursey Island, or Europe’s largest Ogham Stone at Ballycrovane. This region has plenty on offer, from sea safaris, adventure centres, world-renowned walks and cycle routes to arts and crafts, meaning whatever you're looking for, there's sure to be something to delight all the family.
