  • "We stayed last year and returned again for the ease and comfort the house offers."

    Super clean, very comfortable and spacious. Views from windows are amazing and the location feels remote but is only 15 minutes from Killarney and all it has to offer and 20 minutes from Tralee. Kerry is a beautiful county to explore and house was a perfect haven to rerun to after a day sight seeing

  • "A beautiful house in stunning location."

    At just 10mins drive from Kerry airport and within easy reach of Tralee and Killarney this was the ideal location for our party of 10. The house has stunning views from every room and is in a peaceful location. Although there were 10 of us, the house felt roomy. Helena was quick to respond to our enquirires and was the perfect host. We hope to be back. Despite staying for a week, it just wasn't long enough.

  • "This beautiful bungalow ticks all the boxes!"

    It is absolutely fabulous! So spacious and extremely well equipped. Spotless when we arrived. Situated in a very private location with its own driveway, lots of parking space and fabulous views. There are 5 bedrooms, each bedroom is beautifully decorated with fresh bedlinen and towels provided. Four of the bedrooms have double beds, one of the bedrooms has two single beds. Two of the bedrooms have their own toilet, sink and shower. One bedroom (twin bedroom) is linked by a door to the main bathroom. The main bathroom is large and has a toilet, sink, bath and shower. Each ensuite/bathroom has toilet roll and soap provided as well as a towel. The kitchen is so big and spacious. Lots of cupboards with plenty of plates, bowls, cups, glasses and cutlery etc. Very well kitted out. The kitchen has a large fridge and freezer. You can access ice and cold water via the freezer. There is a dishwasher and a microwave, kettle and toaster. Chopping boards and knife block are also available. Washing up liquid and soap were provided too. There is a breakfast bar with 3 chairs and a large dining table with 6 chairs. The breakfast bar chairs can be used around the table if need be or there are stools provided in the utility room. The sun room just off the kitchen has a corner sofa. There is also a living room just off the kitchen through glass double doors. The living area has a TV. The utility room is a great size and has a separate toilet and sink just off it. It also has a washing machine and sink. There is a large cupboard in the utility room which has a drying rack, ironing board, hoover, brushes, iron, cleaning equipment etc. There is also a handsanitiser dispenser in the utility room. The entrance hall is extremely spacious with a lovely tiled floor. WiFi is provided. The house is situated in the countryside approximately 20 minutes drive from Killarney. It has a great location for all the tourist attractions. We can highly recommend doing the Ring of Kerry, travelling around the Dingle Pininsula, visiting Muckross, Ross Castle and the Gap of Dunloe. There were 7 adults in our group and we stayed for one week. We wish we had stayed longer. We all loved the house very much. Very impressed with it as soon as we set foot in it. The owner of the house is so lovely and extremely helpful. I can't recommend this house enough, you will not be disappointed.

    Two families with two kids and a set of grandparents had loads of space and comfort. The outside area is perfect for kids. The location is perfect to relax in and a short 30 minute drive to fabulous days out along ring of Kerry and beaches. The supermarkets are a short 15 minutes from house and the kitchen so well equipped and central hub to the house eating in as a family was lovely.

    The property is out in the countryside - exceptionally peaceful, beautiful view, large property - plenty of space for all nine of us and hardly a plane in sight. Beds were exceptionally comfortable - well equipped property.

  • "The accommodation is lovely but there are things that would make it better."

    The bedroom with the fireplace needs to have the fireplace boarded up. We had 2 storms whilst we were there and the wind blew through there and the cold and noise was horrendous. There were 10 people on the trip and a baby but only 9 adult folks and only 9 seats. Each person only had 1 pillow so more pillows would be good. There was a washing machine but no tumble dryer, we got very wet and muddy and trying to get the clothes dry wasn’t good. The property was advertised with 3 on suite but there was only 2 and a jack and Jill bathroom. We have travels and stayed in many houses in Ireland and usually you get a small starter hamper ie tea bags biscuits bread sometimes this would have been nice. There was no guest book. All these things would have made it a more pleasant stay

  • "House was perfect for a large family."

    We went with 4 adults and 6 children, each person could have their own space if they wished. House was spotless. Big fridge/freezer so we could do a big shop at the start of the week. Plenty of pots/pans/dishes and utensils available to cook for a large family. Perfect location, an ideal base for travelling around Kerry. Large garden for kids to play and kick a ball. Outdoor seating area for those sunny evenings. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. It has been one of our favourite holidays and I can't actually recommend this house enough!

    Our host, Helena, was extremely helpful and replied to any queries we had very promptly. A fantastic base to explore Kerry, particularly for families who are happy to get out and about for the day as it is easily accessible to the main tourist sites. About 15mins either side of Tralee and Killarney.

  • "Great house for large parties."

    We had up to 9 people for a few days and sufficient room for everyone. Located in farm countryside so google maps are necessary. We come from a major city area but got the roads down after a few days. Between Killarney and Tralee. Perfect for traveling out to other destinations. You will love staying here!!!

About the location


Killarney 10 miles; Tralee 11 miles.

Historically known as An Fearann Fuar, meaning 'the cold land’, the village of Farranfore is nestled half way between Tralee and Killarney, County Kerry. Farranfore is the ideal central location for your Kerry holiday with easy access from the airport and its proximity to so many Kerry attractions. The village is only a short drive from Tralee, which offers a great selection of bars, pubs, restaurants and shops to tempt visitors, and is home to one of Ireland's famous international festivals, The Rose of Tralee. Tralee Aqua Dome is one of the largest water parks in Ireland, while for those who enjoy cultural experiences the museum and theatre will not disappoint. You can take a short drive in the opposite direction, to the delightful town of Killarney, where Irish culture can be experienced around every corner. The town of Killarney offers a host of amenities and attractions, including the fabulous Killarney National Park and world famous Killarney Lakes, or play a round of golf on one of town's courses, home to the Irish Open in 2010 and 2011. Farranfore is also the perfect starting point to tour the Ring Of Kerry, a scenic route with sensational views that can only be seen on the Emerald Isle, or visit the Macgillycuddy Reeks, Ireland’s largest mountain range, and a tour of the Dingle Peninsula is also an enjoyable day out where you can take a boat to see Fungi the Dolphin.
