About Jane Urquhart

I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world. I am passionate about nature and am so lucky to live in such a beautiful unspoilt part of the world.

I run my small bakery and tea garden at my farmhouse home and on Thursday lunchtimes we have live music in the garden for our customers. I have taught myself to play the piano accordion but really feel more comfortable playing the piano!

During the winter months I enjoy hill walking and overseas travel adventures.

Jane Urquhart purchased this apartment in 1997

Superbly located and very cosy, the cottage is ideal for a couple who want to explore the area.

  • 5 of 5

We loved Jane's cottage, it is homely, comfortable and well equipped, with fantastic views. Jane's bakery downstairs supplies croissants, Cornish pasties and much more. Lots of information available for things to do and places to visit, the beaches are wonderful. We had a lovely time, and will return.

Magnificent Co Kerry

  • 5 of 5

Jayne was a great hostess. Her home baking was lovely, soda bread and scones freshly made in the morning, which you could buy from her bakery for breakfast. The apartment above the farmhouse was lovely, everything you could possibly need, along with the views - fabulous! The area was very peaceful and secluded. The scenery nearby was spectacular. Great holiday!

Nice country retreat

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely place with a nice atmosphere. The apartment was clean and has everything one needs for a self catering experience. Moreover, the fact that there is a bakery downstairs makes it even better. The soda bread, the croissants and the apple pie were wonderful.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Ireland for our 30th wedding anniversary. We loved our stay at Jane's! The upstairs apartment had everything we needed, beautifully decorated, a cute and charming style. We woke up to amazing views from every window, the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. When we arrived there was fresh bread and marmalade waiting for us and in the morning hot homemade croissants! We would definitely recommend Jane's for a peaceful stop in the countryside. Thank you for an delightful stay!

Cozy, Delightful, Charming. A. Very Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here 8-12 April. We loved everything about the place: the views of the boats in the harbor, the private garden area, the window reading nook, Mac the 30-year-old horse, Betsy the 40-year-old goose. The delightful hostess, Jane, looked after us with the kind of care it takes to keep those animals going for so long! An afternoon of guitar, bouzouki, accordion and singing in the courtyard while sipping hot chocolate and munching delicious baked goods and visiting with other guests who dropped by (followed that evening by yet more cameraderie and entertainment around a fireplace in a nearby pub). Our stay was truly enjoyable and unforgettable! We're back in the US, but still basking in the glow. It was such a great time! Thanks, Jane!! Thanks, Pat!!

Our Honeymoon was Magical

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm wlecome from Jane and a cosy apartment with amazing views from every window. The weather was glorious and on our first evening we sat out in our little scented garden,lit with fairy lights and stars and enjoyed an al fresco dinner and champagne. We hadnt realized just how stunning the surrounding scenery is and enjoyed the beaches and mountain hikes. We steadily worked our way through all Janes baking - delicious brown bread, chocolate cake and almond croissants to die for! We loved our week and hope to go back. Thank you Jane
