  • "On arrival we were greeted with a lovely apartment, garden, well maintained & secure for our dog to run around in."

    Warm and comfortable down stairs with a sunny aspect to the place. Mary the host was lovely, as were the neighbours and pets. Nice quiet surrounding area, I would visit Faha again, if I was to holiday in Kerry. Thank you.

  • "Mary, the Bean an Ti, had left a lovely welcome pack consisting of wine, (proper) Tayto crisps and sweets for the kids."

    The apartment was clean and tidy, and the downstairs area felt airy and spacious. We really enjoyed our stay there.

  • "We spent 4 nights at this accommodation in early September 2020."

    It was not too difficult to locate on Google Maps. It is located near Beaufort, about 15 mins drive outside Killarney town in Co. Kerry. The owners, Mary and Sean, greeted us warmly on arrival. Mary gave us milk and left tea, coffee and a few basics for us in the apartment. Mary even baked a superb apple cake for us as well. The apartment is a fully contained annex to the owner's family home. It has it's own back garden and has a great feeling of space, after a couple of nights in a compact hotel room. There is a kitchen separated by a sitting room and bathroom on the ground floor. Upstairs is one double and one twin bedroom. The ceilings are arched, so be careful not to bang your head (like I did once) in the bedrooms. One drawback is you have to walk downstairs from the bedrooms to go to the bathroom which can be tricky if it's in the middle of the night. All mod cons are included such as a coffee maker, dishwasher and washing machine, iron and ironing board, TV with Irish and UK channels. There is a table football game in case the weather is rainy. WiFi is included but the speed in the area is slow, so using 4G data on your mobile phone is faster. The weather was warm during our stay. We loved visiting two beaches about 30 minutes drive from the apartment and Killarney town is quite special with the world famous National Park and lakes. Restaurant dinner prices are higher than Dublin generally, so we cooked dinner in the apartment on most nights. You will need a car to visit the local supermarkets. We had an issue with the kitchen radiator releasing a high-pitched noise when it was on. This was very promptly remedied by Sean once informed. Overall, an excellent property, with very friendly hosts who chatted often with us. The beds were comfortable and got good rest during our stay. If you have a car, I highly recommend a booking.

  • "The apartment is very comfortable with everything you might possibly need."

    It's located about a 15 minute drive from Killarney just off the main route to the Dingle peninsula. Mary is a great host, we would happily stay there again if we are down that way again..

  • "We had a really good time and Mary was welcoming and ready to help."

    It was great to have a place that welcomed our dog and suited her well. Although the accommodation could take 4 adults , the bedrooms are small and one is clearly designed to take 2 children. The toilet and bathroom facilities downstairs would not be ideal for 4 adults but for us , it was fine. We really enjoyed the place but directions for finding it over the last few miles were really confusing and need sorting out - much depends on whether you are approaching from the South or the North ! Everything worked really well and we enjoyed the wood pellet stove and I enjoyed my first experience of Netflix ! We would certainly go again if we were in the area.

The property

In the small town of Faha in the scenic County Kerry, attached to the owners' beautiful home is this amazing annexe, Rosnacarthna More Apartment.

Boasting exposed beams, high ceilings and a feature stone chimney breast, this property is full of character, while being finished to contemporary degree, this property is ideal for couples or a small family.

Walking into the property brings you straight into the open-plan living space, where you'll be immediately struck by the grand high ceilings and exposed beams and the overall stylish layout.

The dining area sits opposite the enormous stone chimney in the centre of the room, which holds an electric fire, and beyond this lies the well-equipped kitchen, which includes a dishwasher and washer/dryer tucked away behind fitted doors - those self-catering essentials!

Moving to the other side of the chimney, and past a real woodpellet stove, into the sitting room there is a three seater sofa and an armchair, perfect for sitting down together with a glass of wine while the fire roars.

The bathroom is spacious and bright, hosting a bath and separate shower, so if you have time between your adventures, you can have a soak in the tub to really unwind.

Follow the winding wooden staircase up to the first floor to the bedrooms; a double and a twin, both with excellent bright decor making it a wonderful place to wake up and start the day.

Access the garden through the patio doors in the sitting area and find a large outdoor table and chairs set on the patio, looking out to the enclosed lawned garden, where you can watch the kids play or let the dogs out for a run around.

The spectacular mountainous country of Killarney National Park is close by, you will have to dedicate several days of your holiday wandering over this unspoiled landscape; it is home to McGillycuddy's Reek, the highest mountain range in Ireland rising to 1000 metres, as well as the Killarney lakes where you can see the surrounding beauty from the water with boat tours in frequent operation, as well as the ability to acquire a permit to kayak or canoe in the lakes.

Rosnacarthna More Apartment is a gorgeous property to bring your loved ones to, with opportunities to see the best of Ireland in all its glory.
