Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in County Kerry - River Farmhouse & Cottages

Two stone cottages, 'ANNIES', sleeping 6 and 'RIVER', sleeping 4 , near Inch

River Farm comprises two cottages for rental - ANNIES COTTAGE, sleeping 6 and one of the most popular holiday cottages in Kerry and RIVER COTTAGE, sleeping 4 - an original Kerry Farmhouse that has been lovingly renovated and updated over the last ten years. Both cottages are surrounded by fields and a small stream runs through the property. It is very safe for children as both cottages are approached via a small ‘dead end’ lane which runs up to the mountain behind the cottages. The owners fields are occupied by pet sheep and lambs (in season), together with donkeys and free range hens. Views of the sea are possible from the garden as well as from Annie’s Cottage. Inch Beach with it's four miles of white sand and dunes(and increasingly a surfing and paragliding mecca) is no more than 15 minutes drive, whilst the beauty of Killarney National Park and it's lakes are also within easy reach. A local grocery shop (8am to 10pm, daily) is only 10 mins. walk away. Dogs are welcome.

Proximity to the best Kerry attractions and sites: Annie's Cottage is ideally situated for Killarney National Park, and the Kerry Way, the Dingle Peninsula and Tralee.

A 30 minute drive will allow you to visit Muckross House, the famous Killarney Lakes, Angel Falls, Ross Castle, the old Copper mInes, the Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney's Cottage as well as walk throughout the beautiful meadows, mountains and woods of Killarney National Park.

From Killarney you can embark on the Kerry Way by foot or cycle or drive to the end of the Ring of Kerry (and back) visiting Killorglin, Glebeigh, Caherciveen, Valentia Island, Waterville, Caherdaniel, Sneem and Kenmare - a memorable journey indeed.

Similar excursions by car and foot can take place on the Dingle Peninsular discovering the wild scenery, breathtaking mountain passes and white sandy beaches. This peninsular also has the highest concentration of megalithic sites in Europe.

A catalogue of festivals - food, music, culture, film and horseracing - take place throughout the year

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just wanted to say 'thank you' for the nice stay that we had in Annie's Cottage. The both of us are very glad that we have stopped by the Dingle Peninsula - a very nice place of Ireland. We even had some luck with the weather, allowing us to do a lot of outdoor activities including a hike to the 'Promontary Fort' which you can see from the cottage.

However, if you are interested, make sure you have good bots as it was very very wet underfoot!

Again, thank you for the stay and all the best!

Lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect cottage for our family weekend in Dingle - welcoming and helpful hosts, cosy and warm with three well appointed bedrooms, loads of books and movies, and in just the right place for exploring the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle peninsula. we will come back again. Couldn't have been nicer.

our stay at Annie's cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Annie's Cottage (2 adults, 2 children Age of 4 and 2). Cottage was clean and cozy, nice little garden incl. the owners animals, cats, dog, sheeps and donkeys. Beautiful sea view out of the bedroom windows. Location was approx. within 30 min. of Dingle and 10min of beautyful Inch beach (which we fell in love with). Owners were on holidays themselves during our stay but all was organized perfectly via email in advance and a nice lady (Lorna) came over to welcome us. I would recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Beautiful holidays at a beautiful cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We spent six great days at Annie´s cottage. It is a beautiful cottage with everythig you could wish for. Nick is a very friendly and helpful host, he was very careing whenever we had a request. He even gave us a hint where to go on sundy night, there is a lovely small pub called foley´s and there we had the chance to enjoy typical Irish live music. The location of the cottage is very idyllic with view to the mountains and sea. Inch beach is very close and worth a visit. It was always fun to have the dog, donkeys and cats around, especially the cats which were sitting very decorative on the windowsill. Annie´s cottage is also a good base for trips around the Ring of Kerry. We can highly recommend to book one of Nick´s cottages. Thank you so much for a great time at the Dingle Peninsula.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

It is hard to summarize how wonderful this property is and how lovely the owners are in a short paragraph. From start to finish it was exactly as described and as lovely as you may imagine a week in the Irish countryside could be. We woke each morning to hear gentle noises from the lambs and then went on walks into the mountains with a dog by our side. My children fed carrots to the donkeys and made a picnic for the cats. The home is stocked with everything you could need and if you can't find something Nick and Anne will be there with it (including any information, tips, etc). The home is spacious and yet wonderfully cozy. And the property and the views are breathtaking. You are a short drive to Dingle, Slea Head, the ring of Kerry, Inch beach, a local market, and many other wonderful sites. And ultimately, you don't even need to leave to have a wonderful day! We are truly hoping to return in the next few years.

Owner's Response: We loved having this Connecticut family to stay at Annie's Cottage. The boys were full of life, very confident and loved our lambs & donkeys,as well as the other pets and Suzanne & Joshua were just delightful to have around. Its always a pleasure to host families who seem to love the rural Irish life and appreciate this beautiful part of the world as much as we do. Thanks for visiting and please come again!

Idyllic and restful

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful few days here. Nick and Anne looked after us really well. The weather was not on our side until the final day when we were treated to some sun and rainbows everywhere! Beautiful surroundings, we had everything we needed for a quiet, relaxing retreat.

Annie's cottage and River Cottage are ideally located to access the many beaches, leisure opportunities and tourist attractions of the Dingle Peninsula as well as the scenic beauty of Killarney, the lakes and the Kerry Way. The county town of Tralee provides an opportunity for good shopping and boasts the Aquadome, a large indoor play centre, and the Kerry County Museum for those rainy days.

For those interested in history and archaeology, the Dingle peninsular provides many neolithic sites and places of interest. The Dingle Way , a 120 mile waymarked route, passes just a few miles from the cottage and you can walk to the nearby Caherconree Mountain (Ireland's 4th highest) from the cottage front door! The charm, small craft shops, and cosmopolitan atmosphere of Dingle Town is a must to experience, as is the Slea Head Drive and the Blasket Islands. Castlegregory and the Maharees are also just a few miles distant

Other Activities: Rose of Tralee festival, Horse racing, Film & music festivals, hill walking, horse riding, craft fairs, farmers markets, indoor climbing wall
