    “We felt that this was a work in ...”
    We felt that this was a work in progress,and lacked some homely touches. We had trouble getting the cooker to work as there was no instruction book.
    We felt that this was a work in progress,and lacked some homely touches. We had trouble getting the cooker to work as there was no instruction book. we also felt that a visitor book would be useful as guests often leave recommendations as to where to visit and where to eat etc. these are all minor details and in no way detracted from our holiday .we particularly appreciated the en suite facilities throughout.

The property

Kenmare 2 miles.

This charismatic, detached country house sits close to the coast of Kenmare Bay, five minutes’ drive from the charming town of Kenmare, County Kerry.

Well finished and excellently located next to the Wild Atlantic Way and the Ring of Kerry, Lounaghan House makes for an ideal base for groups to get together and enjoy Ireland’s superb south-west scenery.

Set over two floors, there are four en-suite bedrooms, one of which is located on the ground floor, so guests of all ages will find a comfortable place to enjoy.

The well-equipped kitchen provides plenty of space to cook up family feasts or prepare picnics for your daily adventures, and extends to a dining area with French doors, allowing plenty of light in.

The sitting room provides a relaxing retreat should you wish to get lost in a good book or snuggle up after a walk around the stunning bay.

When the sun appears, open the French doors to the garden to let in the cool summer’s breeze and the sounds of the Roughty River passing nearby.

Outside, the young ones can run around in the garden, whilst everyone will love an alfresco feast on warm afternoons.

Kenmare is a short drive down the road with a range of shops, restaurants, cafes and pubs that play host to traditional music.

There’s also a golf course where you can work on your swing, and after a busy day, why not take a short stroll to the nearby Sheen Falls Lodge and treat yourself to a night off from cooking?

The surrounding area provides a spectacular setting for endless walks and cycling, or guests can jump in the car and take a tour of the world-famous Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way, both boasting breathtaking views.

A wonderful holiday home in a wonderful County Kerry location.

About the location

KENMARE, COUNTY KERRY

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!
