About this listing
Our warm and cosy, two bedroom stone cottage, with wood burning stove and rustic finish, is a true country retreat! Sitting among trees at the foot of a mountain, the cottage is the perfect base for exploring the wonderful South Kerry.
The cottage, which was renovated from a stone ruin over 10 years ago, has all the charm of an old farm cottage with the conveniences of a modern home. The main room consists of a large open space with a low ceiling over one half, which forms the dining area. The other half is a double height space consisting of a sitting area in front of the fireplace with wood burning stove. The bedroom is accessed by a door next to the sitting area. This double height room with a king sized bed is the master bedroom. The stairs from the main room takes you to an open half-loft/mezzanine on which there are two more beds; 1 single and 1 double.
At the opposite end of the main room from the fireplace is an arch which leads to the kitchen and shower-room.
The cottage is self-contained on its own plot of land at the end of a private country lane and will be totally yours for the duration of your stay.
Interaction with Guests
We will meet you on arrival and again when you are leaving. Other than that we are nearby for chats or anything else you may need.
Your surroundings will be beautiful South Kerry countryside and you will have sheep, pheasants and hares for neighbours. The cottage is set among trees and is very secluded.
We are 3.5 miles from the nearest town, Cahersiveen, where you will find supermarkets and a variety of quirky, lively and traditional pubs, shops, cafés and restaurants.
You will need transport, be it cycle or drive.
Other Things to Note
This is the perfect location from which to explore the stunning Ring of Kerry driving route. Fishing, hiking, cycling, golf, and horse riding can all be easily organised. The nearest beach is only 4 miles away and there are many others within easy reach.
We expect that you will respect our home and leave it as you found it.
Wir haben den Aufenthalt in der Rosebud Cottage sehr genossen. Die Lage ist sehr idyllisch, die Ausstattung sehr gut und der Empfang war sehr herzlich. Unser kleiner Sohn freute sich über die Ponys direkt vor dem Haus, die er auch füttern und streicheln durfte. Vielen Dank an Ritchie und seine Familie für die schöne Zeit!
Loved our stay in the Rosebud cottage. Charming cottage, idyllic setting & great base for travelling around Kerry. We loved the views & having Kerry Bog pony's as neighbours. We took our 5 month old pup with us, she had a ball running around the house, hanging over the wall watching the world go by & getting comfortable around the ponY's.
Le papa de ritchie nous a tres gentiment accueilli au cottage qui est parfaitement decrit dans l annonce. Nous avons suivi ses conseils pour les visites. La vue depuis le gite est très agrable. Nous avons passe trois belles journees dans le secteur depuis ce cottage...
The cottage was just as pictured - warm, cozy and quiet. Ritchie's father, Tom, was there to greet us and show us the house. The next day, he introduced us to their Kerry Bog ponies, who come right up to the fence in the mornings and evenings. He let the kids feed and brush and even take on ride on the ponies! I would highly recommend the cottage.
Such a lovely house in a very quiet and peaceful area. We really enjoyed our stay at Ritchies house. Highly recommended!
Cottage was exactly as described: secluded in a wonderful setting. Mother of Richie welcomed us and answered all our questions. We had a little problem with the heating (weather was really bad) but it was fixed within a few hours. For anyone who wants to have a relaxing holiday far away from the city.
Nous avons été accueilli par la maman de Ritchie.
Maison agréable et bien équipée, très calme et bien située pour découvrir le Kerry.

About the Host, Ritchie
Hi I'm Ritchie
As a host I look after the renting of the cottage for my parents Mary & Tom , who live nearby and look after the cottage day to day. We love the opportunity hosting gives to meet new people and at the same time let our guest experience the unique place that is South Kerry.
I split my time between Cahersiveen (Home) and Cork city where I work Monday to Friday.
