  • Mr Harnett

    “Everything about the house is as described - the main thing is that the amount of space inside is unbelievable and far exceeded what i was expecting.”

    Great outside space with a fabulous view of Ballinskelligs Bay and the Golf course.

    Great outside space with a fabulous view of Ballinskelligs Bay and the Golf course. The only negative is the link on the Sykes app for directions. This takes you into Google maps and you end up in the wrong location. Can you update this to match the owners directions - thankfully these are 100% accurate

The property

A wonderful detached holiday cottage set in a rural location, close to the town of Waterville in County Kerry.

This delightful single storey Waterville cottage has four bedrooms, one with an en-suite shower room, which means groups of friends or families can explore this lovely area.

The sitting room at this Waterville cottage has a cosy open fire, so on chillier evenings after a busy day exploring the area, you can put your feet up and enjoy a warm drink.

The fitted kitchen is ideal for preparing succulent meals, or on sunnier evenings you can light the barbecue and gather everyone together to reminisce about the day's events.

Golfers in your party will enjoy being so close to a Links course, plus everyone will like playing in the sand or having a swim with the beach only a mile away.

The area close to this Waterville cottage is a walkers haven with the Kerry Way nearby, plus you can buy souvenirs in the bustling town of Cahersiveen.

A terrific Waterville holiday cottage, which is bound to please.

Nestled between Ballinskelligs Bay and Lough Currane, sits Waterville, the premier coastal tourist centre on the Ring of Kerry. Surrounded by mountains and lakeland, Waterville also offers a fine sandy beach, two golf courses, one being a championship 18-hole course, a selection of restaurants and bars, as well as interesting archaeological remains. Enjoy walks along the wonderful Kerry Way, or angling and fishing on one of the area’s many excellent rivers or lakes. Take a boat trip to the Skellig Rocks, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and enjoy fabulous vistas across the bay, coupled with seeing one of Europe’s best-known and oldest monasteries. Other trips of note are Valentia Island, with its superb views to Skellig Rocks, Slea Head and the Blasket Islands, a trip to Dingle, or a visit to the bustling coastal town of Cahersiveen, which is only 10 miles away. There are also great beaches for surfing and watersports along this stretch of coastline, for both adults and children. Waterville is situated in the Kerry International Dark-Sky Reserve, the only Dark-Sky reserve in the Northern Hemisphere and, impressively, one of only three Gold-tier level reserves in the world!
