The property

This impressive, detached holiday home is situated in Loher, a coastal hamlet three miles from the town of Waterville, in County Kerry. Well furnished and decorated throughout, to make a stylish and homely Waterville cottage, this holiday hideaway boasts tremendous views and makes a great base for family or friends. Light the fire and relax in a comfy sofa as you soak up the views, or get out and about, exploring this wonderful area with its heady mix of coast and country. For a great night's sleep there are five comfortable bedrooms, three with en-suite facilities, including a wet room with grab rails, for the less mobile members of the party, so you can make sure you're all ready and raring to go each morning. The exceptional views on offer from this Waterville cottage encompass the sea and mountains, and panoramic windows in the sitting room mean you can enjoy them at any time of the day, no matter the weather. On a sunny, taking in the views from the patio is a must, and you can see all the way to the Skellig Islands. Named after the Loher stone fort, this cottage is just a stone's throw from the 9th century monument itself. With walking on the nearby Kerry Way and Ring of Kerry, and Waterville's attractions close by, this wonderful Waterville cottage is ideal for a scenic getaway.
