I am an artist who conducts plein air art retreats all over the United States and Europe. Noting that this region of Ireland is the most beautiful place on earth, I had to check it out and began the search to find our home away from home for my nine other artists.

Peter's lovely Sheep Farm is everything as described and so much more. When we arrived at the farm, the panoramic views brought us to tears and took our breath away. The home is so welcoming and inviting. The house is very cozy, clean, comfortable, with amazing views from every room. Betty is a very sweet local lady who made us wonderful meals. We asked her to prepare for us her families favorites and her meals were fabulous. Another wonderful person we met was Shawn who operates Falvey's Cab and Mini Bus Hire in Glenbeigh. Shawn was amazing. He took such good care of us, a very knowledgeable, funny, guide. He always went way beyond the expected. This amazing farm home is just a short drive from town and close to all the sites we wanted to visit.
Our Glenbeigh vacation could not have been more perfect, from the beautiful home to the magnificant views. We came home with many beautiful paintings and thousands of photos. It was truly an artists paradise. The rating above only allows us to give a 5 star rating. We disagree and would give it a 10+. We can not wait to return again. Peter, thank you so much for allowing others to enjoy your piece of paradise.

Barralach was booked as a week long foray by London based mountaineering club, Ibex, to the mountains of Kerry.
Once the rough track upwards had been negotiated, we were treated to quite awe inspiring views of Dingle to the left, local rough terrier Commaun in front and the Reeks looming to the distant right. The notorious Atlantic weather had apparently gone on holiday at the same time and we were treated to glorious sunshine and associated views pretty much all week. The property itself is very well thought out; having most of the sleeping accommodation in seperate buildings made it particularly easy to organise sleeping arrangements. The arrangement would particularly suit groups of two or three families. The main building is well laid out with distinct kitchen, utility, dining and relaxing areas and is very well equipped. Of particular interest is the wall space, a rival to the National Gallery if I've ever seen one.
If you are an outdoors buff, this place will be heaven. The local freshwater lakes provide great swimming opportunities (once you get over the initial cold), bike hire (including kiddy trailer hire) is readily available in Killorglin or Killarney at very reasonable rates, but it must be the hills and beaches that capture the hearts and minds of people like me. To have mile upon mile of sunny beach available and only a handful of people to share it with is quite a novelty. To have hills just as challenging and rugged as anywhere else in the British Isles with similarly few people on is plain madness - these people really dont know what they are missing!
Overall, a quite brilliant trip, one which I would gladly organise again, using Peter's brilliant property without hesitation.
Owner's Response: Thank you for this charming review. As you suggest, Barralach is indeed superb for groups of like-minded people. We have had golfers, fishermen, hill walkers, painters, bridge players, archaeologists, horse riders and of course large family get-togethers. They loved Barralach and we loved them.

Absolutely beautiful location

Peter warned us to mind the road and not to be distracted by the beauty of the surroundings. Well he wasn't joking, we really did have to mind the road because the scenery driving up to the cottages was amazing! And the views from all the windows of the cottages and the garden are equally amazing. It is just the most perfect location if you enjoy beautiful scenery, peace and comfort. Our kids had complete freedom to play and discover the property and we could relax and enjoy everything.
Lots of places are near Barralach so there is plenty to do.
We would definitely recommend the Barralach cottages.
Hope to go back!

Peter,
All of us were....what would the word be?..."enraptured" is what comes to mind...by the mysterious and enduring and grand setting that is your wonderful sheepfarm/lodge/holiday home.
Son and Husband climbed the peek seen out the living area windows (base at the junction of the five roads) on a whim one morning and had such a fine time. We all hiked up the rise behind the house (Sifin?) in a howling wind and felt good to have the cobwebs blown out of our minds/hearts/lungs. It is a stunning and evocative place. Thank you for providing for us so very well and for being a part of locking in some extended family memory-making.
The sheep were great surrogate hosts...such personalities!
We had to leave to get Husband back to his other life (work), but we thoroughly enjoyed our days in your world.
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Located right on the Kerry Way and two miles from the Ring of Kerry, Barralach is a hill-walker’s paradise. Its own 10 acres and the thousands of surrounding acres of open hillsides provide pasture for flocks of mountain sheep and lambs. It is close to the mid-point between the great golf courses of Killarney, Tralee, Waterville and Ballybunion and is only 10 minutes from Dooks 18-hole links course. It overlooks the salmon and trout lakes and rivers of the Caragh system. The great Atlantic surfing strand of Rossbeigh and the quieter beaches of Dooks are close by. The fine restaurants and pubs of Killorglin and Glenbeigh, on the Ring of Kerry, are easily reached. Our brochure will guide you to the best eateries, and to superb and memorable activities such as horse riding on Rossbeigh strand or in Killarney National Park, visits to the Skellig and Blasket Islands, outings with the Dingle dolphin or magnificent walks on the Kerry Way.

Other Activities: mountain biking, photography; landscape painting; bog vegetation lichens & natural springs; hundreds of acres for young and old.

Geology, showing dramatic effects of the Ice Ages in the shaping of the landscape all around us and the deposit of erratic boulders.

History including the Kerry Bog Village, the astonishing 350 million year-old tetrapod tracks, Gallarus Oratory and many Mass Rocks.
