Description

A lovely newbuilt house in a gorgeous location. Mountains all around and big south facing conservatory and garden. See the sun rise and set here in Croi Danu, and in between, enjoy all the beautiful day trips that Kerry has to offer.

This is a beautifully finished house, with three good sized bedrooms - 2 ensuite - a large living room, a big fully appointed kitchen/diner opening into a 15ftx15ft conservatory that brings the outside in. The whole living area of the house is full of light.The thing that I love about this place is that you start the day with breakfast, drinking in the changing light on the mountains and at the end of your day out, it is lovely to come back to the quiet and stillness here and watch the sun setting as you sip a glass of wine in the conservatory!

There is ample space for parking several cars here. The whole house and garden is yours to enjoy.

I will mostly be available to answer any questions you may have about the house, the area, possible excursions and helpful contacts in the area. If I am away, I will ensure that someone else is available to help. But above all I will leave you to make yourselves at home here in your own way.

The house is on the famous Ring of Kerry, with so many beaches, mountain trails, woodland walks only a short drive from here. Situated down a quiet boireen, yet very close to town - 10 minute walk - gives you the benefit of complete peace & quiet, with the option to enjoy the pubs and restaurants a short walk away. Cromane beach is a 10 minute drive away - last summer I swam there almost every day, the water like silk on the skin. We are 20 mins from Killarney town & National Park, 25 mins from Kerry airport, 20 minutes from the expansive and wild Rossbeigh beach, where you can walk for miles or hire a horse from nearby Burke's stables. The town of Killorglin is a friendly one, with someone always ready to help with directions. There is a library, and next door a tourist information office, where the staff are exceptionally helpful and friendly, and a couple of cafes in the plaza, to while away an hour and people watch.There are several pubs, some with live music, and some good restaurants. In early June the KFEST is on in town, with art, music, and all sorts of entertainment and interesting things to do. In August there is the famous Puck Fair, when a puck goat is crowned King for a few days - I kid you not! - and the streets are filled with music, song,dance and stalls selling all sorts of interesting and exotic items.

It's really best to have a car here, so that you can get the maximum benefit from all that there is to do and see in Kerry. But there are buses from Killorglin to Killarney and Tralee. There are buses from Kerry airport to Killarney town. From Killarney there are trains and buses to many destinations. I can sometimes be available to do a pick up from Killorglin town or from Killarney, if necessary, and if arranged in advance.

Kerry is one of the most incredibly beautiful and magical, mystical places to visit in Ireland, giving you mountains, lakes, rivers and the wild Atlantic to feast your senses on.

The Sunshine a House is a wonderful place. The large spaces and extraordinary level of attention paid to details to ensure comfort, mean that our stay there was absolutely perfect. Shayla clearly prioritizes the comfort and satisfaction of her guests. The location, surroundings and views are incredible. I would definitely book there again, if I were coming to Kerry.

Our stay at the Subshine House was everything we hoped it would be. It was a great location, only a short drive to Killarney, and centrally located on the Ring of Kerry. The small town in Killorglin was great because it had all the essentials but was not as touristy as Killarney. Shayla was very attentive and helpful.

Thank you for your kind words Sarah. I am glad that you and your family had such a good time here - hope that your trip home went ok. Sorry that the wifi didn't work in the bedrooms - you should have said. It is usually ok. The booster probably needed rebooting, which I could have done for you. Warm regards, Shayla

Shayla's home, conveniently located in the ring of Kerry is a wonderful place to enjoy a vacation. The home is spacious, modern and furnished with all the essentials you would need to live comfortably throughout your stay. Shayla did a great job communicating with us, and even offered fresh local yogurt and wine upon arrival. We couldn't have asked for anything else. Great value!

Shayla was so helpful in telling us where to go during our Ring of Kerry trip. She provided maps and suggestions. The property was beautiful. Tons of space, with beautiful views of the mountains. She provided delicious local food for breakfast. The house is eco friendly so if your not used to compost and recycling its a little adjustment, and she is specific on house rules (only eat in kitchen, where to put the trash, strip the beds before you leave, etc.). The water is also a little brown given that it's most likely well water. But I would highly suggest this property and shayla was an amazing host.

Exactly as pictured. Brand new and spotless. Dream kitchen with every gadget you could ever dream of, perfect for cooking. We loved our stay in this beautiful and quiet location. Shayla is in the apartment connected to the back of the house and will graciously light the fire for you nightly. She also helped us plan our daily itineraries, pointing out great stops we would have otherwise missed. Wish we could have stayed longer, highly recommend.

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!
My life motto -" Life is a mystery to be lived, not a problem to be solved!"
