Interaction with Guests

I try to meet all guests on check in. However, sometimes, its not always possible to be available and I leave keys for you. This is a family owned property so you may meet me, my sister Catherine or my husband Mark. Or maybe even Coco the dog!. We live next door, we are around most evenings.

The Neighborhood

Jacks Country Farmhouse is perfect for touring the ring of Kerry, Wild Atlantic Way. There is a walking trail right outside the house. (Keel Uphill Downhill Loop ). Very near the beach, and perfect for mountain climbing, walking, fishing, equestrian and being in nature.

Getting Around

You need to have a car to get around, although public transport is available, bus, rail and airport are nearby.

Other Things to Note

I generally send a welcome pack to all guests giving details on the house. If you haven't received one within 7 days of arrival, please email me to remind me. It tells you all about the house, the area and things to do.
Please note there is no wifi in the house, there are many bars and restaurants nearby that have free wifi including the local towns. Why not enjoy the peace and quite ( without technology!!)
