Our architecturally built house, within walking distance to the National Park and 5 minutes drive from Killarney town centre, is just three years old and has been finished to a very high standard. It is spacious, bright and warm and, despite being a large house, retains a cosy atmosphere.

About Rod and Fiona Stewart
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
Why Rod and Fiona Stewart chose Killarney
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.
What makes this house unique
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.
