    “A great positioning of a really nice property, lovely view, very private and quiet and within walking distance to Kenmare which offers dining and local entertainment.”

    The area is one of the best places to visit in Co. Kerry, well known for its mountainous region with access to the estuary at Templenoe just a short drive away. The property has 3 bedrooms with comfortable beds and very nice bedding. There are 3 w.c.’s which were very useful with 5 adults and a small child, along with a shower and separate bathroom.The house was fully fitted out to accommodate our family. There is an open fire and night storage heating. There is a small garden to the rear and driveway to the front. The owner Mr Peter Poff was extremely pleasant and accommodating explaining everything fully before leaving.

About the location


Glengarriff 19 miles; Killarney 25 miles.

A picturesque town situated on the stunning Bay of Kenmare, overlooking the gleaming Atlantic Ocean. Beautiful beaches, wildlife and lovely scenery abound here. The coastline is rugged with sandy beaches close by, while pebble beaches surround the bay itself. Kenmare is an interesting town, full of character and colour, with long winding streets setting the scene for farmers' markets, artists' galleries, lovely little boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Ireland! The town is also situated on the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way. The famous town of Killarney has an abundance of attractions, pubs, festivals and its National Park is about 35 minutes’ drive away, and though there is much to see and do here, the pace of life is still leisurely and unhurried. With the Beara and Dingle Peninsulas nearby and the Ring of Kerry and Wild Atlantic Way to explore, makes this an ideal base for exploring Kerry to Cork. This great location is not to be missed!
