The space

Stunning large 'cottage style' house - nestled in a secluded wooded area, down a little country "boreen", under the Seefin mountain. It is surrounded by river, lakes and sea, and situated a mile from Glenbeigh village on the majestic Ring of Kerry.

This 4 bedroom house is brand new, and finished to the highest standards. Tastefully furnished, with solid oak floors and doors, equipped with all high quality appliances (from kitchen to surround sound audio-visual equipment) as well as wireless internet. The house boasts a traditional sauna, jacuzzi bath and rain-forest showers. It has underfloor heating throughout, via an eco-friendly geo-thermal system. There are large outdoor patio areas, perfect for barbecues and enjoying the fresh unrivalled country air. The property is surrounded by trees and has a wonderful rustic hideaway feel to it.

The location is idyllic; with beautiful beaches, Caragh Lake and River, the excellent Dooks Golf Links and some of the finest hillwalking terrain in Ireland on your doorstep. Perfect rustic holiday base, especially for those interested in golfing, fishing, hillwalking, watersports, horse-riding or just touring this most beautiful part of Ireland. The house and surrounding area will also be particularly appealing to artists/writers/musicians looking to be inspired in a beautiful natural environment.

The small charming village of Glenbeigh is just down the road and has a supermarket and a small selection of local shops, traditional pubs and restuarants. There are a couple of excellent gourmet restaurants in Cromane and Caragh Lake ( 3 miles away). Killorglin (6 miles) is a medium sized Irish town with a lively social scene and a wide array of pubs and restaurants to choose from. The town also boasts a good live music scene. Killarney (16 miles) is arguably the tourist capital of Ireland, with all associated attractions and amenities, including its famous national park. The area is well served by local taxis, should one wish to have a night on the town and leave the car at home. Further afield places of note include Dingle town and peninsula, Kenmare, Waterville and the awe-inspiring Skellig islands (25-40 miles).

Apart from the great natural beauty of the area, this is a very historic and mythical part of Ireland, which features prominently in the great Irish folklore tales. Indeed there is even an ancient 'holy well' up the road from the house with alleged curative powers. If you are looking to venture into the mystic, mythic beauty of rural Ireland, this will undoubtedly be the place for you.

Absolutely stunning! Very spacious and has everything you need. We had such a wonderful stay. I would highly recommend Peter's home.

Lovely home and wonderful base camp for our day trips. A great family getaway. Peter communicated well throughout the entire process. Peter and dad, Owen, go above and beyond to delight. We highly recommend and we would love to return to the cottage someday.

Pictures don't do this place justice. It is absolutely stunning! We found it to be very spacious and beautifully decorated. One of highlights of trip was the Kissane Sheep Farm, where you see a demo of sheep herding. You can take the difficult driving yet absolutely beautiful route through the Gap of Dunloe. I highly recommend if you can stomach sharp turns and extremely narrow roads (even for Ireland). Otherwise take the more straightforward route through Killarney, but do go! Drive the Dingle peninsula as well as, obviously, the Ring of Kerry. We had a hard time finding good food in general in Ireland, but Rumours in Glenbeigh (less than a 5 minute drive) is pretty good.

Stayed 4 nights. Right off Ring of Kerry Road next to Glenbeigh. House was very spacious. Comfortably fit 4 adults and 2 teenagers. Check-in process (with Peter's Dad) was smooth and quick. About 7-10 min from Killorglin and ~20 minutes from Killarney.

Peter was a great host. He was very accommodating upon our arrival a little earlier than we had anticipated. His father Owen stopped by and called to check in on us throughout our stay. The home is very lovely. We were a family of 5, so the house allowed everyone ample space. The record player and albums that are there gave us a lot of enjoyment. The kitchen was well appointed and we made several meals here. There is a supermarket it the town. The home is right off the Ring of Kerry in the woods. It gives you a very quiet space after a day of touring. Kilarney is about 30 minute drive away. Peter told us about several hikes in the area. We did several and they were all very scenic. We had a very pleasant stay at Peter's home.

Originally from the best of the west coast (it's not called "the Kingdom" for nothing!), and currently working in university in Dublin. Things I love include music (being a musician myself), active outdoors sports, the changing of the seasons, architecture/design, good books, great films, funky art, fine coffee, stimulating conversation, meeting new people....and of course travelling to interesting new places. I have traveled far and wide throughout this great world of ours, and now take great pleasure in welcoming people to my own little patch of it.

I finished building my Kerry cottage home in 2012. It was a genuine labour of love; fulfilling a long held ambition to have my own beautiful place in the beautiful area I grew up in. Now I enjoy sharing it whenever possible with fellow travelers looking for an idyllic base in the heart of majestic, mystical Kerry.
