Resting in Cullenagh Upper, Beaufort, and at the foot of the Macgilycuddy Reeks and Carrauntoohil, in County Kerry is Rocklands House, a fabulous four-bedroom dwelling.
Just a short journey away from the Gap of Dunloe and Killarney National Park, Rocklands House offers the ideal base for a family of nine looking to explore the surrounding countryside.
Park up on the private driveway before entering into the traditionally furnished open-plan living space, enjoying a well-equipped kitchen, a dedicated dining area, and a homely sitting area, complete with a double-sided woodburning stove.
Further areas to relax include the light-flooded sunroom, where you can enjoy a coffee and an afternoon of reading, or head outdoors to the enclosed pet-friendly garden, ideal for alfresco dining.
When sleep calls, return indoors to one of four bedrooms, all well-appointed and with direct access to bathroom facilities, including a double with en-suite, a family room serviced by a bathroom, and two ground-floor doubles with en-suites.
Awaken to a stroll around the garden, with far-reaching views across the surrounding fields and peaks, before exploring the area, starting off with a trek alongside Killarney Mindful Hiking group, a round of golf at Beaufort Golf Club, or arrange your own nature-filled stroll across Lisleibane - Carrauntoohil Trail Head.
Enveloping the national park, arrive to a wealth of beauty spots, including Torc Waterfall, the remains of Ross Castle, overlooking the stunning Lough Leane, Lily of Killarney Watercoach, perfect for a journey across the surrounding waters, Library Point, recommended for both hiking and kayaking, and the Falconry Kerry for an immersive afternoon.
Complete your trip with a visit to The Kerry Bog Village Museum, discover River Caragh Viewing Point, or summit Carrauntoohil, standing as the highest mountain in Ireland.
