This charming, detached, stone-built cottage is set on a peaceful and quiet lane, just two miles from the lovely village of Tarbert, and the Shannon port in County Kerry. This wonderful Tarbert cottage was built in the year 1884 and has been lovingly restored to enable it to offer modern comforts, whilst the property still retains its original charm. With four bedrooms, one with open plan access from the first floor landing, this property is ideal for families and offers a homely and comfortable base for those wishing to discover all that County Kerry has to offer. The well-equipped kitchen is the ideal place for guests who want to prepare wonderful meals for everyone to enjoy together, whilst re-capping all of the fantastic activities enjoyed throughout the busy day exploring Kerry.

Outside your Tarbert cottage is a well-maintained, rear garden where you can enjoy alfresco dining and spending lazy afternoons together and where the children in your party can play safely. Tarbert is a friendly village with a strong sense of tradition and offers pubs and shops where guests can browse for souvenirs to remind them of their trip. From the village of Tarbert, you can explore the Wild Atlantic Way, which is one of the most famous and culturally rich coastal routes in the world, or why not relax and enjoy a ferry ride across the lovely Shannon Estuary to the beautiful and rugged County Clare? Here you can travel around the Loop Head Peninsula where you can see its well known lighthouse. For those who would like to travel a little further, the Cliffs of Moher are a fantastic sight to behold and well worth visiting to see why they are the most visited natural attraction in Ireland. Listowel is a lively town and is only a short drive away from your cottage near Tarbert.
