Beaufort 7.5 miles. This ground floor, traditional Irish cottage is situated in the heart of Black Valley, on the owner’s farm beside their Bed and Breakfast in County Kerry. With the Killarney National Park and Macgillycuddy’s Reeks right on your doorstep, Shamrock Cottage is the perfect base for walking and exploring the incredible natural beauty of this stunning region. Inside are three comfortable bedrooms, one beside the kitchen with two single beds, and two double rooms with additional single beds for added flexibility. There is also a large wet room at the back of the property with a walk-in shower. The sitting room is a wonderful place to relax, discuss the day’s escapades or unwind with a bit of TV, whilst the kitchen is the most social room in the cottage. With a dining table and 3-seater sofa set beside a woodburning stove, it’s a great place for everyone to gather while dinner is cooking. Outside in the yard you can exchange hellos over the garden wall, with the owner’s friendly donkeys. In the sunshine, bring your meals outdoors or enjoy a refreshing beverage as you marvel at the mountainous surrounding scenery. Kate Kearneys Cottage; a delightful pub, restaurant and traditional music venue is just 5.5 miles from the Cottage. Keen hikers will love tackling the challenge of
