  • "The house is in a great location with lovely views down to Fenit Harbour and very close to the new Tralee to Fenit Greenway for walking and cycling."

    The hosts were helpful and there if needed. The house is generally clean. We would have expected that the kitchen crockery would all match and some utensils need replacing. The oven is in need of some attention.

  • "Pleasant comfortable place, lots of space, large kitchen, generous outdoor seating."

    Also nice that the pantry in the kitchen was well stocked. And did we find it annoying that there was no dishwasher? Not really.

  • "Very comfortable and well kept though dated."

    Comfortable beds. A few issues with plumbing ie. Bathroom cold tap loose and wouldn’t work, loud and strange noises from pipes. Fridge temp faulty, froze the strawberries! A lot more could have been made of the outside yard as the furniture was very basic and it was surrounded by a fence. Lovely quiet location close to good restaurants and the coast. Great views.

  • "This is a lovely, comfortable, and very well equipped self catering cottage."

    We could not fault it. Probably the nicest self catering we have come across. We stayed 5 nights and found lovely places to visit within the area. The loan of cycles was nice and the wonderful greenway cycle and walking trail very close by. We had a lovely time here and thoroughly recommend it.

  • "Had a lovely stay here."

    It is probably the best rental we have stayed at. Kitchen well equipped and we had a welcome pack of food which was very handy. Lovely views and close to the Greenway which is great for safe walking and cycling. Bedroom was large and comfortable with great views. Good parking in front of the building. Definitely would recommend here.

    Such a sweetheart. The weather was very kind, so we got to enjoy lots of adventures in and around the local area and some lazy relaxing time at The Annex too.

  • "The house is in a quiet location with a lovely view of fields and the water."

    It is a 5 min drive to Tralee, about an hour to Killarney and has many wonderful beaches within a 30/40min drive. Kathy and Padraig made us very welcome. The house itself was very cosy and had everything we needed including a comfortable bed. Also there were a good supply of tea bags, coffee, sugar and loo rolls. The icing on the cake for us was the secure patio area for our 2 dogs. We will definitely return in the future

  • "The Blue Annexe is the perfect spot for exploring the beauty of County Kerry."

    Kathy & Padraig are the perfect hosts & their little dog Milo got friendly with our dog Jack during the week we were there. The house is immaculately clean; WiFi is great and you are literally on the doorstep of two stunning beaches Fenit and Banna along with fabulous restaurants The Oyster Tavern in Spa and West End in Fenit - booking advised for Friday through Sunday. We drove a good bit around the county including the spectacular Ring of Kerry; Dingle and back via Connor Pass (not for the faint hearted!) and some other gorgeous beaches including Inch Kells and Castlegregory. We were lucky with the weather for early September and only had heavy rain overnight with pretty clear mild days. Kerry is breathtakingly beautiful and this is the perfect spot to explore and return to for a relaxing evening in front of the fire with a glass or two of wine

The property

Tralee 5.1 miles.

This striking blue annex can be found resting on the outskirts of the bustling town of Tralee, surrounded by tranquil mountain ranges and countryside.

Positioned in a rural base but not far from the centre of town, Blue Annex provides a wondrous base for a small family to explore the South West of Ireland.

Step through into the hallway, where you will find a snug sitting room to your left, ideal for gathering together at any time of day amongst the warmth of the woodburning stove, making it a great spot to take advantage of the books, games and DVDs provided, or simply relish in each other’s company.

Following through to the rear of the property will bring you to the kitchen/diner, a spacious area where you can gather around the dining table to enjoy home-cooked delights prepared in the amply-equipped kitchen before engaging in an evening of board games.

When the evening draws to a close, retreat to one of the two bedrooms to catch up on your rest; offering you a ground floor truckle bedroom and a king-size bedroom with an extra day bed and its own en-suite bathroom, the layout of the property is ideal for a family structure, with a bright and airy aura throughout both of the resting spots.

The master bedroom benefits from extraordinary views out of its Velux windows, letting you stargaze at the mountainous skies ahead of your next action-packed day out.

To the rear of the property you can find your own private enclosed garden, perfect for the little ones and your canine companions to play freely as you enjoy your morning coffee amidst the countryside breeze.

The immediate area of the property is rather rural and tranquil, making it a great spot for those seeking a relaxing retreat with ample walking routes from your doorstep.

For a day out full of vibrant adventure, the nearby town of Tralee makes a great day out for all tastes, with a wide variety of eateries, shops to explore and cultural wonders in its theatre and museum, it offers excitement for all of the family.

Within easy reach is the port town of Dingle, where you can find dolphin boat tours, an aquarium and various other harbour front delights, providing a memorable day out where you can create cherished memories with your loved ones.

With access to a wide array of attractions, Blue Annex makes a delightful base for a tranquil retreat to Kerry, Ireland.
