  • "We had such a wonderful stay."

    The views were undersold and are absolutely spectacular. We can see into the valley and it's breathtaking, this was such a highlight for our stay. We loved the cozy cottage and our group of five was comfortable.

  • "This property is not in Kenmare despite being shown as such on the Sykes website."

    It is up a narrow back road south of the river. Fine if you were seeking a quiet rural location but no good if you were expecting to wander into town for a drink or meal in the evening. The property itself is spacious, bright and tastefully refurbished with a large garden and pleasant sun room. Unfortunately the kitchen equipment provided is very limited and levels of cleanliness could certainly be improved. It is also worth highlighting that there is no Wi-Fi.

  • "We had wonderful days in this cozy cottage."

    The location is fantastic for those seeking peace and a great starting point for day trips. Everything you need is available in the cottage. It is clean and everything is ready for the first fire. Shops are many available. From the organic market to the discounter, everything is easily accessible, and shopping is no problem after a day trip or an excursion. We felt very comfortable and will definitely come back.

    Lovely location with beautiful views. The house had everything we needed; cleaning supplies, towels and bedding. Ideal garden for the boys to explore and lovely patio area. I would recommend this house for a relaxing stay with all the comforts of home.

    It was a wise choice as the cottage was lovely and a haven of tranquility. The views all around were beautiful and the house was very comfortable with a lovely bright sunroom where l could sit peacefully and reflect . I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a peaceful holiday in comfort

    Plenty of room for us to spread about and very comfortable. Everything we needed for a week in this beautiful part of Ireland.

  • "So much space, great location."

    Needs more glasses (only 3 wine glasses) and a good, deep clean. The hot water didn't seem to be working (we switched on the gas boiler and it fired up but no hot water) and the fact that you can't have two showers running was a bit of a pain in the mornings. Might be useful to state that this is a rural cottage with limited water pressure. Good layout, lovely sun room and outside dining though. Comfy beds and big bedrooms.

  • "Beautiful house in a very scenic and quiet location."

    Great space to relax and explore the local area from. Kenmare is a very nice, friendly, and busy town, with plenty to do and see in the area. The house is very nice but did have a lot of spiders inside, and could have been cleaner when we arrived. Great space outside to relax, enjoy the views and for kids to play.

    It has everything you need, and has so much space inside and out. Scenery is beautiful from the picnic bench on a sunny day! Will definitely stay again.

    Very poor that they did not check the state of the premises they recommended.

  • "The owner called us a couple of days prior our arrival to let us know where the key to the house was kept and also advised that the standard check in at 3 pm is now delayed by one hour due to Covid 19."

    Meaning extra time for cleaning is required. When we arrived we were stunned by the view, it seemed this was exactly what we could expect for €730 for 4 nights. Our excitement was quickly replaced by disappointment the moment we entered the house. The table and kitchen counter was still dirty from previous guests, same with floors and couch which was covered with a blanket full of crumbs. Bits of food in dishwasher and mould in the fridge. I spend first hour cleaning the kitchen so we could use it. The worst part however is the terrible smell coming out of the upstairs bathroom which was out of service. I have contacted the owner about this issue and his reply was that a cleaner (?) had called a plumber the day before our arrival because there was a drip from the shower and a bad smell and that he was sorry that the smell has returned a day later after the plumber was there. Absolutely nothing has been done about it. The smell was so bad and it was coming into the whole house even through closed door and extractor fan being turned on for the whole time, we kept all windows opened during the day but nights sleeping in this terrible smell were dreadful. As mentioned on the other side the views were amazing and we loved the fire place in both living rooms. I would not return or reccommend this cottage to anyone following our experience. Not worth the money we paid whatsoever.

    Really cosy. Fantastic view. Highly recommend it. Bit of a trek up the mountain if walking back from kenmare with the kids.

    The house is about 5km from where it was on the map which was not ideal for what we had planned for the weekend. The house itself was great with beautiful views.

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


  • 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!
