An attractive, grey stone building, originally stables and outhouses for the early 18th century Westcove House, overlooking the Kenmare estuary on the southern tip of the beautiful ring of Kerry. The Stables was converted in the 1960s and its facilities have been regularly updated over the years. All main bedrooms have a view of the sea and the mountains beyond. It sleeps up to 11 and provides an ideal annex to Westcove House, making a perfect venue for extended family re-unions, being very suitable for children. There is comfortable sitting room with open fire. Facilities also include wifi throughout. The well equipped kitchen has a dining table seating 10 and a spacious play area. A large games/party room, artist studio and a sauna/exercise area are facilities situated in The Stables building (which are shared with the house when let separately) and also approachable from the outside. There is a patio with garden furniture with good views over the Kenmare estuary. The games room is also ideal for holding talks, classes, activities & demonstrations for a wide variety of interest groups. Art groups delight in our north-facing studio, while walking groups can revive weary muscles in our sauna after a day’s rambling. A large lawn with swings is perfect for children or playing games, or even erecting a marquee for a party/small wedding. We also have a rowing boat available at guests own risk.
Our location is fantastic for outdoor pursuits from cycling to fishing, sailing to walking. 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 also an ideal base for golfers.

PLEASE NOTE… We are usually reluctant to let the Stables on its own between May and October until we are sure it is not needed as an annex to Westcove House (1213179) and/or Garden Cottage (1213184) which together make a very popular venue for extended family get-togethers and other reunions - See Westcove Lettings (439174). However, do check the calendar and contact me as this restriction does not always apply – when we ourselves are staying at Westcove House for instance, the Stables is often available on its own – and we very seldom use the games room!
