  • "Great cottage in super location with amazing views."

    Highly recommended. Owner could not be more helpful.

  • "A great positioning of a really nice property, lovely view, very private and quiet and within walking distance to Kenmare which offers dining and local entertainment."

    The area is one of the best places to visit in Co. Kerry, well known for its mountainous region with access to the estuary at Templenoe just a short drive away. The property has 3 bedrooms with comfortable beds and very nice bedding. There are 3 w.c.’s which were very useful with 5 adults and a small child, along with a shower and separate bathroom.The house was fully fitted out to accommodate our family. There is an open fire and night storage heating. There is a small garden to the rear and driveway to the front. The owner Mr Peter Poff was extremely pleasant and accommodating explaining everything fully before leaving.

  • "We spent a wonderful week in Kenmare Bay Cottage."

    The photos don’t do the views justice , it is absolutely stunning and ever changing. The cottage is conveniently placed for exploring the area and we were continually amazed by the beauty of the landscapes. The house is warm and comfortable and Mr Poff made us extremely welcome. Kenmare has wonderful shops and restaurants. It would have been an added bonus to have internet access but other than that the house was perfect. We will definitely return.

  • "The house is in a very well maintained estate and is immediately overlooking the estuary and the Sheen Falls hotel."

    The place was very well equipped and was very comfortable for our one week stay in August. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Kenmare town centre is a 15 minute walk away along a footpath and has excellent shops and restaurants. Compliance with COVID-19 requirements was evident in most places. I I would highly recommend this house.

    3 small negatives. The frying pan was greasy ., Numbers are erased on electric hob dials, and therefore was difficult to operate, needs renewing. Under unit lighting in kitchen didnt work properly. We had a great holiday, but wifi would be a bonus.

  • "The holiday cottage was an excellent location for touring Kerry."

    So glad we chose Kenmare as this is a lovely little town with lots going on in the evenings and nice shops and cafes in the day. The cottage was clean and comfortable and on the whole had everything needed for the week. The owner came to meet us late at night when we arrived to see us in (which we had agreed and arranged beforehand) and checked all was going well during the week. The cottage had lovely view over the lake. I would give it 10/10 except for a minor thing. I was disappointed to find on arrival that there was not a pint of milk in the fridge or any sort of welcome tray. I have stayed in holiday cottages for the past 25 years and I think this is probably the first one that I have arrived at and not found milk and some sort of tea tray (maybe I have just been lucky in the past?), so as we arrived late there was not a cup of tea until after we had been shopping on the Sunday :-(. As I say a very small thing, but it is sometimes the little extra touches that make the difference.... I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone.

  • "Kenmare is great for visiting Killarney area, Beara and Invereagh peninsulas, and is lovely in itself, great bars and restaurants."

    Ate a couple of times in PF McCarthy - all food excellent! The view from the cottage is fantastic and we were lucky to have wonderful weather and sit out. Cottage is roomy, has very comfy beds and everything we needed. I suppose Wi-fi would be nice, but managed with data roaming now same as home use in Ireland. The countryside is stunning everywhere. Particularly loved Derrynane beach which has it all - huge, fine sand, islands out of sea including one to walk to at low tide, rock formations in sand, dunes, walks, waves, mountain views and Daniel O'Connell's house to visit (didn't try it as weather too good). Also loved Blue Pool Ferry to Garnish Island and visiting the Botannic gardens there. A wonderful holiday.

    Great location - easy walk to Aldi/Lidl and into Kenmare town. Very clean and everything was of quality. The only thing that would have been nice was a few DVDs and a few games but that is a minor detail!

About the location


Glengarriff 19 miles; Killarney 25 miles.

A picturesque town situated on the stunning Bay of Kenmare, overlooking the gleaming Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful beaches, wildlife and lovely scenery abound here. The coastline is rugged with sandy beaches close by, while pebble beaches surround the bay itself. Kenmare is an interesting town, full of character and colour, with long winding streets setting the scene for farmers' markets, artists' galleries, lovely little boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Ireland! The town is also situated on the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way. The famous town of Killarney has an abundance of attractions, pubs, festivals and its National Park is about 35 minutes’ drive away, and though there is much to see and do here, the pace of life is still leisurely and unhurried. With the Beara and Dingle Peninsulas nearby and the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way to explore, makes this an ideal base for exploring Kerry to Cork. This great location is not to be missed!
