    “Beautiful, Quiet Spot”
    This was one of the best parts of our trip to Ireland. The cottage is nestled up a quiet road about 7 minutes outside the village of Kenmare The views are absolutely marvellous. There is space for sleeping 6-7 people though for us, it was just a couples get away. During the day, we went out to explore the 'Ring of Kerry', the Killarney National Park and Dingle, coming back to the cottage in the afternoons to relax and read in front of the fire ...
    This was one of the best parts of our trip to Ireland. The cottage is nestled up a quiet road about 7 minutes outside the village of Kenmare The views are absolutely marvellous. There is space for sleeping 6-7 people though for us, it was just a couples get away. During the day, we went out to explore the 'Ring of Kerry', the Killarney National Park and Dingle, coming back to the cottage in the afternoons to relax and read in front of the fire. When we arrived, the owners had left us some fresh milk, a folder full of brochures with things to do and an apple tart to enjoy with a cup of tea! A lovely, welcoming touch. The town is a lovely spot for dinner or even a quiet drink in a pub. The locals are lovely and very helpful to tourists such as ourselves. The house has a big kitchen with everything you might need. The laundry is full equipped with washer and drier. There is plenty of space, even for a large family. For this location, you do need your own transport. My only feedback would be the lack of wifi. As overseas guests, we had some planning done online and being able to access the bookings and information online from the cottage would have been great. All in all, a great location for couples to have a quiet romantic getaway in one of the most picturesque regions in Ireland.

The property

Kenmare 2 miles.

A delightful country house in rural Ballygriffin, just a short drive from the beautiful coastal town of Kenmare.

Traditionally finished, with spectacular views of the countryside, this house makes a fantastic destination for family and friends to enjoy their Irish break away.

The house is finished to a good standard and offers three comfortable bedrooms upstairs, with the main one enjoying its own en-suite and balcony.

The ground floor is home to an open plan living area with kitchen, dining area and sitting area complete with exposed wooden beams and a stone fireplace fitted with a solid fuel stove.

The ground floor then also extends to a snug with a solid fuel stove, as well as a sun room with dining table and patio doors, so you can step out and sit in the warm summer sun as you take in the fresh Irish air or have a picnic in the garden while the young ones stretch their legs.

Nearby Kenmare is a highly popular town where you will find a great range of places for you to have a bite to eat or go for a drink, with some good Irish music on offer.

Pull on your walking boots and explore the surrounding countryside, hop in the car and discover the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way, or take a trip to the Priest’s Leap and take in the breathtaking sights.

A superb house that won't disappoint!

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!
