Irish Country Cottage

House - Private room · Killarney, Kerry, Ireland

Just 1 minute's drive from town centre and a 15-minute drive from Kerry Airport at the gateway to the scenic Ring of Kerry and Dingle. Killarney National Park is 20 minutes away on foot. The famous Aghadoe viewing point is a short walk away.

The Space

My 2 bedroomed cottage is in a great location for guests who want to immerse themselves in Killarney with all it's beauty. The National Parks, Golf & Fishing all within a stones throw.

Guest Access

Guests share the twin bedroom with access to the rest of the house & although the room is not en-suite there is a private bathroom downstairs, this bathroom has a bath & a hand-held shower, however, guests who do not wish to indulge or have time to take a bath may use the electric shower in my en-suite. Guests may feel free to sit in front of the fire for a read or to watch tv, you also have access to the patio & garden weather permitting.

I also welcome solo travellers like myself who may be interested in the room, just send an enquiry and I can then reply with a special offer.

A self-service continental breakfast is provided which includes:-
Tea/Coffee or Herbal Teas
Fruit Juice
Fresh Fruit
Choice of Weetabix or muesli
Toast with homemade jams.
Tea/Coffee available whenever you wish.

Interaction with Guests

Guests will be sharing the house with me & my dog Putu (she's under a year old, a cross between a Yorkie & Bichon & extremely friendly).
Guests with dogs are also welcome but I only have room to accommodate 1 or possibly 2 small dogs, they have to be friendly & get on with other dogs, Putu is ok as she loves all dogs & would love the company.
I interact with guests as much or as little as they want it's up to the guest really, but I love to meet new people. I'm on hand if needs be & I will provide any information needed with regards to things to do & see, of which there are plenty.
I offer a free pick-up service either from the bus or train station.
I can also pick guests up from Kerry Airport at a cost of €10.00.

The Neighborhood

My home is situated in Killarney described by many scholars throughout the centuries as "heaven's reflex". The house itself has a farm surrounding it so it's quite & if you walk 5 mins down the road you have the most amazing views of the famous Killarney mountains & lakes.
Killarney is a National Park & therefore a protected area, so as a result there are many places for hiking, (mountaineering is very big here) walking, fishing, golfing etc., and if you get bored in Killarney you are within a stone's throw to the Ring of Kerry & The Dingle Peninsula.

There are plenty of tour operators to visit the scenic spots + there are public buses between towns.
Kerry airport is 9 kms., from the house.

    Response from Olive:

    Wow Laura what a wonderful review merci. It was an absolute pleasure hosting you & your Mum, it was more like fun than work, I totally enjoyed your stay & hope to see you again one day. I hope going back to work wasn't too painful & that your Mum got a good sleep on Monday before her night shift, regards from me. Merci Encore

  • The location and accommodations are perfect for someone wanting to get in and out of Killarney and the Ring of Kerry etc. The house is charming and the "guest room" is comfortable. Olive is a gracious host and very knowledgeable about the area. We were made to feel welcome and I would have no reservations recommending this to other AirBNB travelers.

5 things I can't live without, none that I can think of when in a warm climate apart from a good book, if in the cold however it's way beyond 5 .............. Love to Travel, Bali being my favourite destination & has become my home away from home down through the years with the added bonus of having made enough friends there to have free accommodation.......... Travelled a lot in the Middle East in the 80's & loved it Sinai being my favourite chilled out place but due to ongoing uprisings have been heading more to Asia & taking in a bit of Europe also with Portugal being my favourite thus far..... I love most music but mainly Ska, Reggae, Cajun, Punk & Rockabilly, that's showing my age, my favourite new band are a young Irish band called The Strypes. Books varied but I love crime fiction........ Favourite movie has to be a toss up between Pulp Fiction & Trainspotting ..... Favourite food LAMB.............. I love to travel solo or with friend & like to stay a long time in one place getting to know the real deal & not the tourist hub.......
