Our architecturally built house, within walking distance to the National Park and 5 minutes drive from Killarney town centre, is just four years old and has been finished to a very high standard. It is spacious, bright and warm and, despite being a large house, retains a cosy atmosphere. Although it is new and quite modern, the house has a country classic look which makes it very comfortable.There is underfloor heating throughout giving a constant temperature all year round. The large windows make the whole house very bright and allow guests to enjoy the wonderful garden and it’s private setting even from indoors.
In 2014 we renovated all 5 bedrooms! - they were newly painted/papered and all have gorgeous new furniture and soft furnishings - each have a unique style and feel -
On offer to our guests are:
Entrance Hall- spacious and welcoming with it's beautiful curved staircase and gallery,
Kitchen/Dining Room - open plan, with everything for the amateur chef including a 7 ring gas stove with three ovens and a large handmade dining table made from reclaimed wood, easily seating 8-10 people and looking out across the entire back garden.
Living Room - open to kitchen, this is a large, high ceilinged room, with an L-shaped leather couch, LCD TV and DVD player and a beautiful gas stove to cosy up the evenings.
Sitting Room – elegant evening room with a HD projector and cinema screen for the home theatre.
All these rooms also have a built-in central music system.
Laundry room – with washing machine, dryer and freezer.
Study- just off the kitchen/living area, with bureau for you to work at on the computer provided.
Please Note: Although our home is wired for internet and is usually fine for basic usage, this is rural Ireland and the connection can be unreliable at times so please do not rely on it for important work etc. There is free WiFi in the town centre and in all the hotels nearby if ours should not be working during your stay.
Mobile phone coverage is perfect in the area but you may find it difficult to use your phone inside the house itself as our walls are so thick the signal has trouble coming through!! Simply standing outside or near a window does the trick!

A large, well established garden surrounds the house with many beautiful birch and willow trees. There is a swing & slide set, a playhouse, a ‘fairy ring’ and a fire pit good for a bonfire as well as a big Australian style Barbeque on the sheltered Patio which also has loudspeakers and heaters over the table. Alongside the stone water feature and slate chippings, the many and varied plants and trees bring much colour to the garden throughout the year.
For your convenience, the final clean as well as all utilities are covered in the rates.
You can even order your groceries in advance, to be delivered on your arrival date from our local Tesco supermarket.
Though quiet and rural, in an area of Ireland famed for the beauty of its mountains and lakes, the house is also close to all the amenities of the bustling town of Killarney.
The ideal retreat for families, golfers, hikers and bikers, cyclists, adventurers, fishermen, artists and of course anyone interested in history, culture and music and general good Irish craic!
We look forward to welcoming you to the Kingdom of Kerry soon!
