The property

Built in 1888, this unique, semi-detached heritage property boasts original period features and is conveniently located near the centre of Listowel, County Kerry. Originally the town railway station, this attractive building has been lovingly converted into comfortable accommodation with some tasteful modern touches. The location of the property makes it an ideal base for a group of friends or family to explore the south west of Ireland. There are four bedrooms at this distinctive holiday home, perfect for resting after a busy day, the master bedroom being on the ground floor and has the benefit of an en-suite shower room. Downstairs, the well-equipped kitchen is a wonderful social space, with the dining table in the middle so the chefs of the party don’t get left out of the conversations while they cook up a storm on the traditional range cookers. Tired out from the day’s adventures, retire to the cosy sitting room, curled up in front of the warming woodburning stove sharing stories and making plans for the next day. Outside, to the back of the property there’s a lawned area where children can picnic on the grass while the grown-ups enjoy a cup of coffee in the sunshine. Listowel town centre is just a short walk away, where you will find several friendly pubs, and if you don’t fancy cooking in the evening you won’t be struggling to find places to eat to suit a variety of palettes. Take a day trip out to Ballybunion where you can enjoy beautiful stretches of golden sands and go for a paddle in the sea, or go for a round of golf at one of the local courses. Limerick is a bit further away, but worth the drive for the variety of shops, friendly pubs and tasty restaurants for you to visit. A quirky property with excellent access to the coast, not to be missed!
