The property

This charming semi-detached cottage is situated on the outskirts of the vibrant town of Cahersiveen, along the stunning Ring of Kerry Peninsula. It is ideal for couples or friends looking for a relaxing away-from-it-all break. This delightful cottage has been charmingly furnished by the owner who lives next door and who has added many interesting finishing touches throughout, including a selection of varied books and music, personal craft and art work and includes a fascinating ‘Astronomy table’ which will definitely inspire discussion as you enjoy your evening meals. This homely and welcoming cottage has an open fire in the sitting room making it the perfect place to relax in peace and quiet with a good book, or maybe retire to the cosy reading room instead. At the end of the day the two luxurious bedrooms are the perfect place to recharge your batteries. Outside the delights of dining alfresco amongst a garden full of wild flowers awaits and fruit from the owner’s garden is available for guests to pick. 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 nearby town of Cahersiveen has a good selection of coffee shops, traditional pubs and eateries and is a wonderful base for exploring this stunning peninsula with its heritage, seascapes and sandy beaches, all waiting to be discovered. Attractions nearby include, Kells Bay and Gardens, golf courses, historic Skelligs, Kenmare Bay and a little further away is Killarney with Ross Castle, the Gap of Dunloe, Killarney Lakes and Muckross House. With so much to see and do in this fabulous area you won’t want to return home!
