Wild Cherry Cottage is a completely original 19th century Irish cottage which has been lovingly and sympathetically renovated and completely restored in the last year or so. It comprises the original slate floors, wooden beams and original fireplace. It is situated in its own grounds of mixed shrubs, trees, lawn and woods, comprising just under an acre. It provides a perfect getaway from the noise and stress of modern city living, with birdsong abound. It also has a large enclosed garden and a section of woods where children can play happily and safely.
The cottage is located in a small hamlet on the lower slopes of the Slieve Mish mountains which provide the 'backbone' to the Dingle Peninsula. There are wonderful walks from the door of the cottage and there are views of Carrantoul, Ireland's highest mountain, and the Magillicuddy Reeks mountain range from the garden. However, civilization is not far away and Castlemaine,the local village, can provide a choice of four pubs, a restaurant and a few shops, a post office and a gym. Live music can be heard at the weekends. Killarney, the National Park and the Ring of Kerry is only 20 minutes drive away and Dingle town itself - a 35 min drive in the other direction - a perfect location for those who wish to experience both areas - and you Must!
The cottage itself exudes 'olde worlde' charm and has two large double bedrooms, one of which features a beautiful four poster bed that the owners had made whilst in Sri Lanka. The living room, with its large open fireplace, is a very cosy and comfortable place to spend the evenings and the conservatory is ideal for catching the morning sun and for eating in in the evening. A bright 'roomy' kitchen with a large rangemaster cooker , dishwasher and views over the garden completes the original part of the cottage. Next to that is the old attached stone 'cow shed' which has now been converted into two bathrooms and two further bedrooms. Both bathrooms have toilets and one boasts a bath whilst the other a shower.
