further on the Kenmare/Kenmare Bay on The Wild Atlantic Way:
Gateway to the most spectacularly unspoiled Beara and Iveragh peninsulas.The long, narrow bay of Kenmare has woodlands on either side and mountainous uplands all around. It has a rich micro-climate creating lush growth and a variety of natural habitats. Kenmare is a sheltered haven, which makes it place apart from the wild, rugged and liberating open seas.
Kenmare town is an architecturally elegant small heritage town, nestling at the inner corner of Kenmare Bay. It is the place to chill, eat and enjoy the view. Expect fine cuisine with an emphasis on local seafoods, expect live traditional music, eclectic small shops and cafes.
Kenmare has two five star hotels and quality accommodation across the range. The town square is flanked by 19th century town houses and has a Victorian style central recreation area. There is a large, wooded wildlife park on marshy inlet south of the town.
The small and serene pier below the town looks across to Kenmare’s most iconic feature, a double arched art-deco bridge, which spans the bay. Take an eco cruise from the pier or from 4klm further along the WAW route and soak up the tranquility of the bay.
Plan a long, relaxing break. Kenmare is a place where you can just BE.
never great in rural Ireland. do please ask me to meet you on last stretch from Kenmare or from Sheen Falls Hotel or on road from south or North N71. I can pick up for expenses from airport etc. I have loads of parking space. Big yard, next house is hardly in view. Surrounded by nature....a bike would do....I am down a dirt laneway and it gives the impression of being very secluded.
If you want to forget the car when you are here there are a lot of walks on the doorstep...heritage park...hills...roads with grass growing up the centre...more sheep than cars kind of thing....see the river rapids....walk down to the five star hotel for a cocktail....climb the mountains on the waymarked routes....visit Lorge's roadside choc. shop for a hot chocolate...take a dip in the infinity pool at the other five star hotel....ride a horse...swing a golf club....take an ECO CRUISE ON SEA SAFARI (marine savvy captain)...see the sea eagles and seals up close and personal...bring a rain hat!
Aine was a fantastic host.perfect blend of chat and interest for us on our trip.she didnt crowd us and offered so much in terms of hospitality and advice for places to discover on our trip.We felt at home and cimfortable within minutes of arriving. Our room was lovely and spacious and we fell in love with the beauty of the landscape. Breakfast was simply stunning, with Aine providing gluten free fare for each morning.we will be coming back in the summer and would highly recommend this (email hidden)y gripe was its distance from kenmare, about 20mins by car, which was a bit far we felt.
Aine has a lovely home, it is really close to Kenmare which is, a lovely spot to spend a couple of days in. Her home is located near some great hiking & lovely scenery.
Her breakfasts were the most healthy that we had in all of our stays in Ireland. She makes everything from scratch, including fresh juice from fruit.
She will truly make you feel at home...
A very beautiful, peaceful place to stay. The house is architecturally fascinating and the interiors beautifully and tastefully designed and maintained. Our accommodation was spacious, very comfortable and with lovely light and views out to the rural setting. The breakfasts, specially prepared each morning by Anne were scrumptious. The location provides an excellent out of town base for exploring the surrounding country which is breathtaking in its wild beauty. Kenmare town is great (insufficient adjectives to convey how lovely this part of Ireland is!) for eating, pubs, music etc. One night we were treated to a demonstration of Irish dancing in one of the pubs. Marvellous!
We really enjoyed our stay at Aine's wonderful house. She was a great host, feeding us a healthy breakfast every morning and offering us advise on possible excursions for the day. We appreciated the rural setting and close proximity to Kenmare and the Sheen Fall Lodge where we stopped for a relaxing drink to end the day. We would highly recommend a stay at Aine's house.
Check in from time to time.....maybe we could do a house swap in the years to come.....i'll take the Californian house first please and do a book tour with a nice accompanying film of the Kenmare landscape, while you come here for 2 weeks or 2 months - leaving Dennis on the banks of the river while you climb to your hearts content. Aine.
We had a really nice time with Aine in her beautiful comfy house! Aine is a great hostess: very caring and thoughtful. She pointed out nice walks and viewpoints helping us to make the most of our time with this unpredictable weather. The breakfast was deliciously impressing: muesli, granola, fruits, fresh juice, bread, jams, yoghurt, local cheese, salmon and more!
The room was spacious, clean and bright with a very nice view on the surrounding mountains and river. We had our own bathroom just next to the bedroom.
We highly recommend her! Thanks again for your warm welcome.
What a surprise - your engagement - Congratulations! Visit Paul Kelly's shop PKJEWELLERS KENMARE, and see his range, remember I was telling you he makes what I think are really strong contemporary designs. All the best and thank you for contacts if I get to come your area. Glad the last day was good for you, the sun shone and the ground was dry enough for Clement to get down on his knees!
