Hurrah!! Finally have a better WiFi signal and not restricted to one room!!

This property is a traditional Irish bungalow that has been extended and modernized while retaining original thick stone walls. Ideal location for a countryside retreat, but within easy reach of Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, Killarney, Dingle, Cork and Limerick.

This property is ideal if you are looking to escape the rat race for a while. It can be found deep in the Irish countryside of North Kerry. A traditional Irish bungalow with thick stone walls has been renovated to a high standard with all modern facilities. There is under floor heating throughout and a peat burner in the lounge for extra coziness in the evening. The kitchen is a spacious farmhouse style with all the equipment you might find in your own home.

There is one double en-suite bedroom, all the other bedrooms have a basin. The main bathroom has a walk-in shower and whirlpool bath. For rainy days in Ireland, there is also a washing machine and tumble dryer.

The house will sleep up to ten people in a combination of adults and children; there is a travel cot and high chair for young children. Downstairs, the green room is double en-suite, the lilac room is twin, the brown room is double. As well as the downstairs rooms, the red room upstairs is a double and there is also a snug room for children. The bed here will pull out to sleep two children very cozily. In this room there is a small TV with DVD and video player so they can watch appropriate films. There is also a box of toys and a bookcase of books - kindly donated by my nephews. There is also a box with body boards and beach games which guests are welcome to use.

There is access to the garden through patio doors in the lounge. The patio extends the full length of the house and is a real sun trap on sunny days. There is garden furniture and sunshades and a gas barbecue. For late lazy evenings, there are patio lights. A pretty stone well is a feature of the garden. This is a real well where the residents used to pull their daily supply. It is covered for safety reasons.

Short break and long lets considered, please ask.

About Alison Dunn

The owner is a self-employed businesswoman, born and still living in Shropshire, England. A visit to Dublin in 2002 got me hooked on Ireland, even though there is Dublin and the rest of Ireland. While still based in UK, I try to visit Kerry at least once a month.

Alison Dunn purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Alison Dunn chose Tralee & North Kerry

This area is more peaceful than the regular tourist areas of Killarney, Dingle and Kenmare. However, the location still allows day trips out to these places and is also convenient for Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and around Limerick.

What makes this cottage unique

For family occasions, such as weddings and christenings, this property is ideal for accomodating out-of-town visitors in a home-from-home environment. For holidays, the usual tourist sites/sights can be visited while escaping back to tranquility at the end of the day.

Guestbook comments from the owner

great place in the country

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I inquired about the house, Alison could have not been more accommodating. Not only did she give me great ideas on places to see in the area, she also gave me ideas as we traveled to her house. Loved the parade of cows every morning and evening. Very remote and quiet. After a day of sightseeing, it was great to get back to the country!

An absolutely beautiful residence in the countryside. Magnificent views over Irish fields. The house had many comfortable bedrooms. Everything you needed for self catering was there.

Coming Back One Day To Retrieve Our Hearts!

  • 5 of 5
Oh, my goodness...near tears as I write. At the risk of never being able to return because Alison's place is steadily booked, I would rather err in honesty to encourage as many as can be to be blessed to stay here! From the very first moment of contact, Alison could not have been more helpful. Prior to our stay, she gave wonderful advice for trip planning, as well as encouragement when our passports showed up just one day prior to departure! She navigated us through lost luggage, late arrivals, and a series of bumps that truly turned into "teachable moments" and testimonies along the way. Though we did not get our luggage until three days later, her beyond-expectation-equipped home made up the difference, in all serious. There was ample space to spread out, and over-the-top welcome goodies, pantry-fridge accommodation, all of the toiletries and amenities one could ever want (from hairdryer to maps/Irish books and movies), and unbelievable comfort and serenity, much appreciated. The view from her back patio makes you want to set up a permanent tent and refuse to go home. I imagine it would be marvelous in any season; believe it or not, we had NOT ONE DROP of "typical rain" in our nine days of travel save for a sprinkle as we headed east for our final two nights. Location? Just perfect. There is plenty to see around Listowel, which has a serious "case of the cutes"...Ballybunion Beach, Bunratty Castle, Adare, etc. Or, you can fall in love with Dingle and the Ring of Kerry as we did and hit the road daily, coming home to literal perfection. You "LIVE" Ireland when you stay here. You want for nothing. The neighbors were amazing, and seeing a working farm in action, guarding against curious cows in the process is the real and pleasantly enthralling deal. The piece de resistance? Our daughter celebrated her 16th birthday during our stay...the trip itself was the result of her lifelong dream to see Ireland. Alison even had a "Happy Birthday" banner hanging! There was NOT ONE STONE left unturned. As I shared in the inception, at the risk of sounding greedy, though we covered nearly 2,000 miles in our rented car (do not miss Galway or An Cobh...last port of the Titanic, especially 100 years later), we have a list of must-sees for our next trip, Lord willing. Alison...my goodness, what a blessing you were and are. Thank you, and thank your precious neighbors for adopting we Stateside "Eire-philes"! Our 2,000 plus pictures say it all! :-)

Listowel Races

We had an awesome weekend in your wonderful bungalow. Plenty of space for everyone. Kitchen and main bathroom were fabulous. We didn't want to come home. It was so easy to book and there was even apple pie and soda bread waiting for us on our arrival. Would highly recommend and we will definitely be back. Thank you so much.
