    “Lovely spacious cottage with some demerits”
    Me and my friend were directed to the nature surrounded cottage located close to Kenmare by the service lady. After a short introduction we made ourselves comfortable. The cottage is very spacious esp. when occupied by only 2 persons. The cottage offers 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living room and large kitchen area. Due to a lack of isolation and weak heating system, the house remained fairly cold throughout our stay. The oven was a big plus then. The interior design is nice and decent. The kitchen ...

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!
