Its about a 15 minute walk ( my husband's pace) into Kenmare or a longer walk around the back lanes. The longer walk along quiet roads gives lovely views out across the bay. Kenmare is a really good centre to explore the area and very good shops and restaurants, having sampled a few and plenty of soda bread, we welcomed the walk back to the house. The house itself was great and suitable for coping with all weathers

Lovely welcome from Margaret for whom nothing had been too much trouble before our arrival. Our online shop from the Supervalue supermarket in Kenmare was a success and arrived minutes after us. We enjoyed excellent walks in the surrounding area in spite of the variable weather. Had 3 super evening meals out in Kenmare. Everyone we met was very welcoming and keen to strike up conversations. The only negative thing about our stay in the area were the midges who prevented us from sitting out in the evening.
