  • "Beautiful property."

    Very peaceful & restful. House was spotless. Everything worked and was cozy and comfortable. Great location to access Tralee, Dingle & Killarney.

  • "Comfortable cottage."

    Somewhat under equipped, especially for four people, but owner happy to provide missing items. Good to have supplies of bread, milk, cereals, fruit and a bottle of wine on arrival. Good shower but hot water rather slow to flow. It was a bit frustrating to have to keep swapping plugs to use the DVD player and Freeesat tuner.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed our stay."

    The old farmhouse was in the perfect location for exploring the Dingle peninsula, Killarney and the Ring of Kerry. Harriet and Owen could not have been more helpful

  • "This cottage was lovely!"

    The rooms are bright, spacious, attractively and simply decorated and spotlessly clean; the beds are comfortable, the shower large and hot, the sitting room cosy, the kitchen large, homey and functional. In general, it retains its farmhouse vibe (the layout, the cupboards, the old range) while containing all the conveniences and comforts you could want. The location was quiet, but convenient for heading into Tralee, Farranfore, Killarney and the Dingle peninsula. The children enjoyed exploring the woods and appreciated the toys and DVDs the owner was kind enough to provide. The owner welcomed us personally and we appreciated the nibbles and wine left for us and the guidance and check-ins during out stay. We would be delighted to come here again.

The property

Ballymullen 5.2 miles.

This charming single-storey farmhouse is found nestled in the neighbourhood of Gortatlea, near to the town of Ballymullen in County Kerry.

With its central location providing easy access to nearby attractions, The Old Farmhouse is the perfect base for a small family looking to explore this part of Ireland.

Welcoming you upon arrival to the property is a large lawned area, secluded by the neighbouring woodland, featuring a wooden picnic table, where you're able to enjoy a cup of tea as you settle in and take in your picturesque surroundings.

As you enter into the property you're delighted by the refreshing ambiance of the open-plan kitchen/diner, recently renovated to a high standard, and boasting a range of appliances to help rustle up a homely meal to enjoy with laughter around the dining table.

After tiring the little ones out exploring the local area, put your feet up and snuggle up on the sofa and enjoy a movie night with a bowl of popcorn in the sitting room, home to a non-operational woodburning stove, adding traditional character to the contemporary design of the room.

When bedtime rolls around, retire to one of the two bedrooms that the property hosts, either the spacious double or well-presented twin, both with light and bright décor and featuring charming wooden furnishings, where you can rest your head and prepare for a new day.

Servicing both of the bedrooms is the family bathroom, benefiting from a tiled wet room, ideal for guests with limited mobility.

Avoid packing everything but the kitchen sink as you prepare for your holiday and make use of the washing machine and tumble dryer provided in the external shed, perfect for those mucky adventures.

Stepping back outside, enjoy a wander through the 600 yards of woodland that the garden has direct access to, or venture further afield to the nearby village of Farranfore while the town of Tralee provides a good selection of shops and pubs.

If outdoor activities aren't really your thing, take a visit to the town of Tralee, home to The Aqua Dome, one of Ireland's largest indoor waterworlds, where you can work up an appetite and enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many pubs and restaurants in the area.

Travel in the opposite direction to the town of Killarney, on the shores of Lough Leane, where you can discover local history with a visit to St. Mary’s Cathedral and the Victorian mansion Muckross House.

Whatever you're looking for, there is something for everyone to enjoy in County Kerry, and The Old Farmhouse is the perfect base for a wonderful holiday.
