  • "In its own ground away from traffic but local for killarney and three national park."

    On routes to Corke and other places. Lots of room in the house to have own space and the kitchen dining area with lots of space.

  • "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!

  • "Amazing house, very spacious and had everything we needed for our week in Kerry."

    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

FARRANFORE, COUNTY KERRY

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.
