The property

This superb, detached cottage is set in picturesque scenery, six miles from Killarney in County Kerry. Overlooking Doolough Lough and just a stone’s throw from Lough Guitane, this cottage is in a striking location. Perfect for a family getaway or a gathering of friends, the cottage is ideally situated and has been tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard throughout. Offering flexible sleeping arrangements, there are five comfortable and spacious bedrooms, one with a large walk-in wardrobe. The main living accommodation is open plan and is a fantastic space for you to spend time making plans for the next day, and with an open fire you’ll all be cosy and relaxed in the evenings. From here you can step into the sun room where you can enjoy the views no matter what the weather, and even open up the doors to the garden where the children can play. Why not bring your morning coffee out here and relax in your peaceful surroundings? Killarney and the surrounding area are hugely popular as it is recognised as one of the most scenic parts of Ireland because of its stunning landscapes, including mountain peaks and crystal clear lakes. You will also find the Killarney National Park, Ross Castle, the Gap of Dunloe and just a short drive from your cottage is Muckross House and Gardens, a 19th century house set against the backdrop of the National Park. There is something to suit everyone nearby with pet farms, horse riding, kayaking, bike hire and boat trips. With the beautiful Torc Mountain, Mangerton Mountain and Carrantouhil, Kerry’s highest mountain, there are plenty of opportunities for walkers to get out and about. If you fancy something a bit different, you can always relax and take a jaunting car around the area. Killarney is a haven for fitness fanatics with many adventure races and triathlons being held throughout the year. It is also home to a selection of boutiques, cafés, gourmet restaurants and traditional pubs where you can spend the night listening to live local music. County Kerry hosts a number of festivals throughout the year and this cottage is ideally located to attend The Puck Fair Festival in Killorglin and the world-famous Rose of Tralee. Also within easy travelling distance are the Dingle Peninsula, The Ring of Kerry, Kate Kearney’s Cottage and the charming town of Kenmare. With so many things to see and do you’ll find yourself booking your return trip before you leave!
