Come and stay at Knockcarrig House and you will find your ideal balance between town and country. Our newly built property is situated on the edge of our private 20 acre farm, yet is less than a 5 minute drive to Killarney.

Located just off the N22 in the residential area of Lissivigeen, Knockcarrig House offers you the perfect base for touring the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Beara. Green fields surround the house and in the Summer you will find our cattle enjoying all that lovely grass that nature has to offer :)

Elegant country living awaits you at Knockcarrig House.

Why Noelle Casey chose Killarney

Welcome to Knockcarrig House, Killarney, Ireland!

Here we offer a little bit of Irish country living in Killarney to holidaymakers. We built Knockcarrig on the edge of our private 20 acre cattle farm which is less than a 10 minute drive to the town centre of Killarney.

'Knockcarrig' comes from the Irish language which means hill of the stones. As farmers who feel an incredible link to the land, it was only fitting to call our house after the farm land on which it is found.

If you were to literally start digging in the fields, you would find plenty of stones in the earth! Traditionally these stones were then used to build walls to divide the fields of the farm. And as for the hill part- well if you were to walk from one end of the farm to the other, you would find yourself climbing a little hill which gives you a panoramic view of the magnificent McGillicuddy Reek mountains!

Knockcarrig Home exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This beautiful home in Killarney was a great VRBO find, and exceeded our expectations!

It accommodated our group of ten, beautifully. The huge dining room allowed us all at one table, for the meals we made.

Bathrooms/showers in every bedroom. The home was stocked with everything, making it so convenient.

The location was perfect. Horseback riding in National Park just minutes down the road, as was the quaint town with shops and restaurants. And, Murphys Ice Cream, a must try, while downtown.

Day trips to Muckross, Ring of Kerry and Ring of Skellig all doable from here.

It was such a pleasure meeting the home owner, Noelle. Hospitality is definitely her forte. Great communication leading up to our check in.

She left us a beautiful welcome basket with so many local goodies. Grocery store very close, too.

We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone looking in this area.

Spectacular house in pristine condition!!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful property in a beautiful area of Killarney. We so appreciated Noelle's attention to detail. The house was very clean, and came stocked with the essentials. Anytime we needed anything (at one time we needed the Internet "topped off"), Noelle immediately attended to it! Highly recommend this house, and would return if given the chance. You will enjoy your stay.

The perfect hideaway in Killarney!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 nights, 8 of us and Noelle thought of everything. The house is beautiful, everything new, a bathroom in each bedroom. Very comfy beds as well and towel warmers! We loved our curious neighbors (the cows) and the added little touches(a beautiful welcome basket with fresh scones and brown bread, coffee and tea and so much more!) Just a few minutes and your in the heart of Killarney. Very highly recommended!!

Everything and more than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Delightful and beautiful home. Our group of seven adults enjoyed ourselves immensely in this elegant and spacious home. Noelle has thought of everything right down to bathrobes in every ensuite bedroom. The gourmet kitchen and separate dining room areas served as great gathering spaces for everyone. Noelle was great to work with , did everything she said she would in an efficient and courteous manner. Thanks Noelle!!! Greg- USA

I didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place to enjoy the Irish countryside with family and friends. Everything that is in the listing was delivered as promised. A smart, clean, comfortable and functional layout. Noelle was there to greet us and was responsive to any requests that we had. Not that we had many, she's thought of everything. A 5 minute ride to the market and 10 minute ride to town. I can't wait to return. Thanks Noelle!!

I could live at Knockcarrig!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Ireland was made even more memorable because of our stay at Knockcarrig House last week. I have to echo the other reviews. The house is just as pictured, spotlessly clean, with top of the line amenities. Our group loves to cook and the kitchen was well outfitted - everything we needed including copper pots! Noelle’s hospitality – including the yummy scones and other goodies provided – made us feel right at home. They have thought of everything. There were 7 of us in all. All the bedrooms were equally beautiful and all with their own bath, which is often difficult to find but a must for our group. Sheets and towel – and even robes – made us feel like we were at an expensive hotel. The house is convenient to Kerry Airport, to town, and to major routes yet you feel as though you are deep in the Irish countryside. Truly a treasure that we were fortunate to discover.
