We are a young family of four - we built this house as our family home and have spared no expense on it, also investing lots of time, effort and love in making it the perfect house. We hope you will love it as we do.

Rod and Fiona Stewart purchased this house in 2010

Although not locals (Fiona from Cork and Rod from Australia) we have always had a special place in our heart for beautiful Killarney and even chose to get married here - we settled here in 2009 when we were lucky enough to buy this amazing spot and build our dream house on it - we love being so close to spectacular nature but also the proximity to so many activities, restaurants, bars and shops, not to mention the amazing Golf Courses.

This town is wonderful for any age group and for almost every interest and our home is close enough to make the most of everything while still being in a rural setting so we have the best of both worlds.

Architecturally designed, the house has - Large open plan rooms with high ceilings, underfloor heating throughout, beautiful big windows overlooking the established private garden.

We have put in the highest standard of appliances and interiors and although practical, the house has an elegant and luxurious atmosphere and somehow also has a cosy and traditional feel to it.

We especially love the trees and the garden as well as our curved stairway and gallery and our opulent evening Sitting Room with it's cinema screen. The children have plenty of space to run around and can play safely in the garden on their swings and slide and bicycles once the gate is shut.

Enjoy!

KILLARNEY TOWN: We are a five minute drive/20 minute pleasant cycle to Killarney town, the jewel in Ireland's crown, and is arguably the one must see place in the country. Tourists have flocked to our lively and colourful little town for centuries on account of the amazing nature and, accordingly, the town has a huge range of bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels offering fine dining, drinking and entertainment. The centre is small but always atmospheric and there is a particular buzz in the town which attracts both foreigners and tourists from around Ireland.

Although best known for it's outdoor activities, for the less adventurous (or exhausted) traveller, Killarney offers cosy pubs with great music, a 6 screen cinema, good shopping and many hotel spas and leisure centres open to non-residents. For the kids, there are indoor and outdoor playgrounds. The INEC also hosts well known artists for music, comedy and theatre.

Whether you are coming for activity, music and “craic”(Irish for fun, to be found in pubs year round), relaxation, history or nature, Killarney and our beautiful home will not disappoint you.

COUNTY KERRY: County Kerry is known all over the world for its natural beauty and cultural heritage.Known as 'The Kingdom', Kerry is one of the most stunning and varied counties in all of Ireland, offering wild coastline, dense woodlands, pristine beaches, wonderful mountains and calm lakes.

Wherever you go in County Kerry, you will be greeted with a a smile and a song, plenty of stories and the famous Cead Mile Failte (a hundred thousand welcomes) of the Irish and in particular the people of this magical place.

THINGS TO DO/SEE:

Close to Home:

The house is just minutes from Killarney National Park, known worldwide for the beauty of its lakes and mountains, with over 10,000 hectares full of interesting walks, cycles, hill walks etc. as well horse riding, kayaking, canoeing, fishing, photography and wildlife spotting (e.g. wild deer and eagles). For the less active visitor, the area can also be seen by traditional horse and cart, car or tour boats.

Within 5 minutes drive of our house you will find, not only Killarney town with its many shops, cafes and pubs as well as the beautiful Cathedral, but also some beautiful nature and sightseeing. Here are some ideas:

Muckross National Park– is huge and its extensive gardens have both beautiful plants and spectacular scenery of the lake and mountains - you can cycle or walk around here or visit Muckross House, the mansion built for Queen Victoria and now a Museum. There are many different walks and you can even paddle in the lake at a little ‘beach’ there. There is also a nice Restaurant and gift shop. In the summer months the lovely Traditional Farms are open with an insight into the old Irish ways and homes, as well as animals and fun activities for children.

Muckross Abbey, an ancient ruin and graveyard overlooking the lake just down the road.

Torc Mountain - with its spectacular waterfall. The waterfall is only about 5 minutes walk from the car park but you can also climb to the top in about 3 hours or if you are brave, you can walk all the way to Kenmare on the old road – about 5 hours!

Ten minutes from us:

Ross Castle:on a peninsula lovely to walk/cycle around and has one of Europe’s oldest copper mines. The Medieval Castle itself can be visited and a favourite with locals is to feed the ducks here! There are boats from here which take you to Inisfallen Island with its interesting 7th Century Monastery. The little boats can also take you for a fantastic trip through all the lakes and amazing scenery to Lord Brandon’s cottage where there is a cafe.

Knockreer Estate - a beautiful walk with fantastic scenery. If you wish, you can walk/cycle all the way from here to Ross castle along a river and through the woods.

Gap of Dunloe - most people walk or cycle the Gap, an amazing place of beauty...or you can also get a ride on a horse and cart – you will see why tourists already came here hundreds of years ago!

Outdoor Activities: This is the place to come for the great outdoors and you will not be short of opportunities for anything from mountain biking to hill walking and canoeing/kayaking on the Killarney Lakes or Kite-surfing on our sandy beaches.

Golf/Fishing: Killarney is great for golf with some of the best courses in the country (the Irish Open was held here the last few years). If you like Golfing you must try the Killarney Golf Club which also is a fishing club. The Beaufort Golf Course is also stunning.

Fishing is popular both on the lakes and in our rivers - you will find Salmon, Sea trout and brown trout
