Westcove House is a classic Irish manor house just off the famous Ring of Kerry. It sleeps 10, including 2 doubles, 2 twins and two adjoining singles with 5 bath/shower rooms. (For larger groups see The Stables, sleeping 11 and Garden Cottage, sleeping 5). The kitchen is very well equipped and has 2 dishwashers, a large range with 5 gas hobs, 2 electric ovens and grill etc. The beautiful reception rooms all have fabulous views over the Kenmare Estuary and the hills of Beara beyond. The imposing entrance hall leads to the sitting room with an unusual sunken seating area around a wood burning stove, through to the cosy 'bar' with more comfortable seating and an open log fire. A quaint staircase leads up to a gallery, stocked with games and books for all ages. Westcove is a real family home with lovely furniture and paintings from Austria, China and of course, Ireland.
The elegant dining room in Westcove House, with panoramic views over the Kenmare Estuary seats 18 comfortably - and can accommodate up to 26 with extra tables. Various delicious catering options can be provided. (see website for details). Katherine - our local manager and chef - will be on hand throughout your stay to advise and help you book tours/ fishing trips etc. etc.
Enjoy a drink on the south facing terrace, which has a built-in stone BBQ & garden furniture, watching our field of decorative Soay sheep at play, or gaze in wonder at the ever-changing light dancing over the sea and mountains beyond.
Tenants of Westcove House may also use the games room and small gym/sauna, both of which are shared with tenants of The Stables but have their own external entrances. The large lawn in front of The Stables is great for visitors of all ages to 'let off steam', and has a swing set in the corner for younger children. We also have a rowing boat available at guests' own risk.
The surrounding area is fantastic for outdoor pursuits from walking to fishing, sailing to horse riding. Golf courses in our area are among the best in the world and within an hours’ drive you will find several top class facilities making Westcove House also an ideal base for golfers. Whatever you enjoy doing this unique classic Irish manor house is the perfect base for a holiday that will live long in your memory !
