About the property

Large house situated on an Irish cattle farm with mountain and meadow views

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. Parts of the interior are drawn from the natural landscape-from the golden hue of hay in the Summer to the proud pink foxgloves found in the mossy stone ditches. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with two possessing both a separate bath and shower.

Enjoy fabulous feasts at our custom designed 10 seater oak table found in our panoramic dining room which boasts mountain and meadow views. Relax in the evening with a good book in front of a roaring fire or challenge someone to a game of chess- the winner doesn't have to do the dishes!

Why Noelle Casey chose County Kerry

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!

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.

Incredible place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Am amazing place in a wonderful location, Noelle met us at the door and showed us around the house, explained how it all worked and even had a hamper ready for us with some very nice bits. I would happily recommend it and have no problems staying there again. We had a group of 8 and everyone thought the house was perfect. Thanks Noelle and Paudie

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Noelle's house is perfect in every way. You can tell she loves this house. It was fantastic for our group of 8 couples. Nobody had to fight over the bedrooms as they were all beautiful each with ensuites. Noelle was there to greet us and showed us all around the house with instructions for everything. I highly recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in the area. You don't have to look anywhere else!!

Excellent Stay at Knockcarrig House!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Knockcarrig House. The property is spacious, beautifully decorated and well appointed as well as being sparkly clean. The pictures accurately show the house. It was so well equipped it really was like being at home. All the little extras are provided for from umbrellas to shopping bags, electrical adapters and basic cooking ingredients like sugar, tea, coffee, milk and butter.

Noelle provides great customer service. She is prompt in all her communication, reasonable and flexible regarding reservation and goes out of her way to make sure that all of your needs are meet. She called periodically to see if we needed anything and how we were getting along. On top of that she greeted us with homemade bread and scones when we arrived. She showed us around the property including how to make sure there was heat and how to use the appliances.

The location is close to town and convenient to shopping, Killarney sights and an easy hop onto the Ring of Kerry. The house is located on a rural road which was perfect for piece and quiet. The cows were an added delight: quiet and friendly. We have stayed at many vacation rentals across Europe and this is one of the nicest. We would highly recommend this property and would not hesitant to return.
