Have a quiet meal, or go and enjoy the music in the pub.There is a beach a 10 minute drive away and another bigger one for long walks - or horse riding - a 20 minute drive away. We are on the famous Ring of Kerry drive - or cycle - with it's spectacular scenery. Killarney National Park is also a 25 minute drive away.
A car is the best way to get around here, to be able to easily access many beautiful locations, but cycling is also very popular. There are buses to Tralee and Killarney, where you can get connections to Dingle or Cork respectively. I can pick you up from Killorglin town with your luggage, if arranged in advance.
No smoking anywhere in the house. And enjoy your stay!
A Killarney native, I have lived in Killorglin for just over 2 years. I have built this house and a Therapy Centre here - finished August 2013 - so that I can have a beautiful space to to live in, to share with friends and guests and to practice my therapeutic work. I lived in London for many years and then in Cork for many more, before moving back to my native Kerry. I choose this location for it's panoramic views of the mountains all around, which change hour by hour, and for it's large private garden space, which I am slowly developping. I love my work, walking in nature, reading, travel and meeting people from different cultures to share experiences. I love nature's beauties and telling people about the loveliness of Kerry. I enjoy delicious healthy food, lots of walking - especially by the sea - and a glass of good wine. I love to sing and I sing in a local choir. When I travel, I like independent travelling, self catering, the choice to relate or not, as the mood takes me, so I offer that to my guests too - freedom of making your own food, non-intrusive care and comfort. Do your own thing - & I'm available if you need any information, to help in any way I can to make your visit more enjoyable. While I am definitely not fluent, I can get by in French, Spanish and Italian - enough to help with everyday things, but not philosophical discussion!
