The property

This delightful semi-detached cottage is situated on the outskirts of the lively town of Cahersiveen along the stunning Ring of Kerry Peninsula.

It is a wonderful choice for couples and friends who wish to switch off from the bustle of everyday life and enjoy the simple pleasures in life.

The cottage has been carefully appointed by the owner who lives next door, and has added many interesting touches throughout to make it one of the most homely and welcoming places you could possibly stay with a varied library of books and music, diverse and unusual personal art and craft work throughout including the very impressive ‘Astronomy table’ which is most certainly a talking point over dinner.

Relax in the peace and quiet of the inviting sitting room with a roaring fire and good book or retire to the cosy reading room.

The spacious kitchen and dining area provide a social, comfortable space to cook up a storm and wine and dine with your loved ones.

Two luxurious bedrooms complete the accommodation at the cottage.

To the rear, guests can enjoy a barbecue and dining area amongst wild flowers where you can really immerse yourself in the joy of alfresco dining.

The owner’s fruit gardens are also available for you to pick your own fruit.

Tig Gorms front windows look upon the most impressive mountain in the Iveragh Peninsula, Cnoc na d'Tobar - Hill of The Well (680m high and 4 hrs walk).

This mountain is one of the 5 ancient and sacred pilgrim paths in Ireland from pagan times.

From the back window, Tig Gorm looks upon Beentee Mountain, a looped walk of 5.5 miles and a 420m ascent.

This mountain was made famous by Cahersiveens poet Sigerson Clifford in 'The Boys of Barr na Sraide' with Cahersiveen situated between the mountains and the sea.

The town of Cahersiveen has a good selection of traditional pubs, eateries and coffee shops to sample and is a wonderful base for exploring the peninsula with sandy beaches, stunning seascapes and heritage to discover.

Attractions include, the historic Skelligs, golf courses, Kells Bay and Gardens, Kenmare Bay and further afield, the famous town of Killarney home to Ross Castle, Killarney lakes, Muckross House and Gardens and the famous Gap of Dunloe.

About the location

CAHERSIVEEN, COUNTY KERRY

Killarney 38 miles.

The lively coastal town of Cahersiveen, birthplace of Daniel O'Connell, is ideally situated aside the River Fertha, at the foot of the Beentee Mountain, in beautiful County Kerry. Renowned in the 1800s for the salting of Atlantic fish, today the town retains strong links with the ocean, boasting an excellent harbour and a superb marina offering sailing, trout and salmon fishing and deep-sea angling opportunities. Cahersiveen provides an eclectic mix of traditional pubs and modern venues, together with a host of cafés, restaurants and interesting craft and antique shops, whilst monthly street fairs present visitors with an ideal opportunity to peruse the colourful stalls of curiosities and local produce. Cahersiveen is the principle town of the Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve making it a wonderful base for astronomers. Explore the nearby hidden coves, walk the Kerry Way, visit two stone forts, discover the fascinating archaeological remains at nearby Waterville, or take a short drive or ferry crossing to the lovely Valentia Island. Skellig Michael is also well worth a visit, it is one of two impressive sea crags set in the Atlantic Ocean and was also used as the setting for scenes in the Star Wars film, The Force Awakens. With plenty to see and do, you'll want to return to this fabulous location time and time again.
