The property

This delightful, detached cottage rests in a lovely, elevated location overlooking Lough Currane, 3.5 miles from the coastal resort of Waterville, on the wonderful Ring of Kerry. Enjoying a stunning setting, surrounded by cow-studded pastures, amongst some of Kerry’s most spectacular scenery, this is a great base for friends and families seeking the sights of this popular area. The property is bright and welcoming with a spacious kitchen with dining area from where your gaze can wander over the lake, and doors sliding open to the garden, perfect for allowing a summer breeze inside. Settle together in the sitting room, an airy space made instantly cosy should you wish to add flame to the fireplace, and mull over holiday plans before retiring to one of the four comfy bedrooms. Set entirely over the ground floor, guests of all ages are certain to enjoy a comfortable stay. Relax on the lawn to the front of this lovely stone cottage, where you can admire the views sweeping over the lough; on quiet days you may even be able to catch the soothing sounds of the Cumneragh River as it runs by. The attractive village of Waterville is just 3.5 miles away, steeped in history. There’s plenty to keep this pretty little place vibrant with a fine selection of festivals throughout the year, along with two world-class golf courses, a wide sandy beach to wander across and a selection of superb seafood restaurants serving up fresh, local delights. Take a tour of the Ring of Kerry, Ireland’s most diverse circular drive, where you’ll spot beaches, craggy coastlines, mountains, medieval castles and more. The nearby Wild Atlantic Way is well worth a drive, where you’ll spy soaring sea cliffs climbing up from the crashing Atlantic waves. A boat trip to the ancient Skelligs is certain to inspire, home to a thriving puffin population. Further afield, the village of Glenbeigh and the superb beach at Rossbeigh should not be missed, or why not spend a simple day resting by the shores of Lough Currane with a picnic and your fishing rod? Whether it’s wild adventures over windswept lands, a beach break or a rambler’s retreat, Lake View Cottage offers a stunning setting for your time in the wonderful west of Ireland.
