Bar Cillatha - Secluded Location overlooking Kenmare Bay
About Jer Foley
Kenmare Rentals is the most recent addition to our family business. Owning and managing O'Donnabhain's Bar & Guest House for many years, we have seen an opening for Self Catering / Holiday Homes as many of our initial guests who are staying with us for the last few years, are spending longer periods here, and it is another alternative.. We have also realised that it can be more cost-efficient and often more convenient for guests who are visiting Kenmare for longer periods of time, to make themselves at home in one of our Self Catering Holiday Homes . If it is your dream to spend a week in a Holiday Cottage in Co. Kerry, then we can make that dream come true. In recent years, we have therefore newly built or carefully restored, and lovingly furnished and fitted out a small number of Self Catering properties in or near Kenmare town. The properties were designed and finished to our own high standards of comfort and requirement for space, and will truly offer you a home away from home. Kenmare is an ideal base to explore, the South West of Ireland . Co. Kerry, with the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, and the Gap of Dunloe on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful Ring of Beara in Co. Cork, which starts in Kenmare.
Jer Foley purchased this Cottage in 2006
What makes this Cottage unique
As owner managers, we care about our properties and our guests. When you rent one of our homes, you are not just a number; individual attention is guaranteed. We will like to have you enjoy our properties at all times but if and when you need us, we are just a phone call away.
Met all expectations.
Fabelhaftes Haus mit atemberaubender Aussicht. Wir kommen immer wieder gerne zurück in dieses Haus. Ein guter Ort zum Erholen und Relaxen. Wir fühlen uns dort rundum wohl.
A most comfortable base to relax and explore Kenmare and its surrounds.
Bar Cillatha is lovely comfortable house with a great view over Kenmare Bay and beyond. Its spacious bedrooms and bathrooms provide a great sense of ease and relaxation. It has all you could need for self catering and in winter it is really snug by the fire. In summer it would be great for a barbecue. You can go on great walks or cycles directly from the house or from a short drive away. It is only a few minutes into Kenmare town with its range of cafes, shops and restaurants to suit everyone. So whether you want a quiet time or lots of activity it is a super base. Jer is a great host and anything needed is taken care of without delay. Very highly recommended.
Perfect Christmas getaway
Had a lovely Christmas stay here...a great getaway.. Stunning views of the reeks,, spacious, very comfortable... Deers on the lawn.. Good walks down the road.. Kenmare and Kerry way nearby...
Need a car.. But great to seclude yourself from the hectic , busy, Christmas scene...
We loved this house.
The house is very spacious and comfortable, tastefully decorated and has a lovely view across the bay. The setting is very private, quiet and peaceful and on a clear night the starry skies are breathtaking. There is a deer family that grazes at dawn and dusk and we look at them while they are watching us....Highly recommend.
beautiful location- lots to do
Nice spacious house with wonderful views in a private quiet location. We had deers visiting every morning and evening on the front lawn. So much to do around the area, we will need to come back!
Only 2.5 miles from the town of Kenmare is the townland of Killaha, beautifully located on a gently sloped mountainside from where lovely views of Kenmare Bay, the MacGillycuddy Reeks and the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed. Killaha is situated on the Ring of Beara, renowned for its rugged scenery and peaceful beauty spots. Being that close to Kenmare, Killaha has all amenities and services close at hand but enjoys a quality of life that is synonymous with the countryside.
