Ideally located for touring south west Ireland, and the ' Ring of Kerry' We fully renovated this property 12 years ago. It is warm and comfortable. What I like best about the house is that it is within walking distance of shops, PUBS, restaurants, cinemas, Parks, and play grounds. The car park is opposite the house, which is so handy.( N0 NOISE) ,House Tastefully decorated,

Walking distance to bus station + rail station, From which there are trains . and buses to Dublin, Cork, Limerick. ( irishrail.ie )

There are also buses to Tralee, Limerick, Dingle, Caherciveen, Killorgan, and most of the Kerry and Cork towns.

(buseireann.ie) also ( dublincoach.ie they have cheap fares Dublin to Killarney) Also bus to ' Ring of Kerry '. County Kerry is know as 'The Kingdom'.

The sea at Rossbeigh - wonderful beach- and the town of Glenbeigh is only about 40 mins drive from Killarney. Muckross house and gardens, and Torc waterfall are about 3 miles from the house. I recommend the Traditional cottages and blacksmith ( check to see if he is on duty) in Muckross. If you are into photography, these cottages and blacksmith area great opportunity to utilise your camera and al lit's setting. I have had some great shots from here. But then , all around Killarney and Co. Kerry is natures photographic studio.

Any questions on the house or Killarney area, please e mail me.

About John Walsh

This house is not our main dwelling. It was purchased for our retirement, but of course, the financial crisis, caused by our sleepy and inept Finiancial regulator, greedy HOBs ( Head Office Bankers ) and helped by politcians, ( all who retired with large bonus and huge pensions) we have to stay working. ( I would write an essay, but its makes me so angry, so I'll stop)

This house was an artisian dwelling. I understand that it was originally built for the workers on the Muckross estate in the 1850's. When we saw it in 2000 it was in a sorry state, small pooky rooms, plaster falling off the walls,electric cables, that Thomas Edison would be ashamed of, plumbing that rattled and spat out the water at you, as for the toilet, well lets not go there ( excuse pun)..Slates falling off the roof,windows rattling and so on, Agent said it was house with character.....? Anyway over a period of 3 to 5 years, after lots of family discussions (arguements and rows) on layout, colours etc. it was finally finished. Now we , I just love the place. Killarney to us has a magical feel about the place, there is always something happening in Killarney, and this house has a wonderful aura, sense of calm and peace about it.I would dearly love to live here full time, but c'est la vie.

note.

We like to Rent from a Sat to SAT, or any number of days ( min 3 days) between the Saturdays. But the weekly rate sat to sat is best value. If not sure call me mobile 00353862577726. We holiday a lot, we always treat other houses as our own, so we like to think that others will treat our house in the same way

It was very good

  • 4 of 5

Even though the house is a bit dated the location more than compensated! We were able to walk to downtown to the shops, restaurants and pubs. We took coach and Jaunting car tours, drove to Muckross House and soaked in all that. Killarney has to offer. I would highly recommend this home for convenience. We totally enjoyed our stay.

Perfectly situated comfortable house!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 9 night break in Killarney and have had a great time.

Before we arrived John sent us all the relevant information and more and answered any queries quickly. We were met by Elvira, the lady who looks after the house, on arrival and she showed us around.

We were able to park in the car park directly opposite the house every day with no problems at all. It cost €3 a day and is free on a Sunday.

The house itself is very spacious, clean and it has everything you can imagine for a comfortable stay. The only thing I can think of to improve our stay would have been softer mattresses on the beds but that is just a personal preference.

There are lots of lovely shops, cafe's & restaurants close to the house and a few large supermarkets within a five minute drive.

Great central base for visiting other areas, eg Cork, Dingle, Ring of Kerry etc.

Thank you John!
