SEASIDE IRISH HOME NEXT TO WORLD CLASS GOLF, FISHING & HIKING

Waterville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

Our home ('Triphailme') is a 3,000 sq ft. private home located on the Irish coast in southwest Kerry. It sits 500 yards from Waterville Golf Links ranked in the top 5 of Ireland's best Golf courses and 54th in the top 100 of the world. The house has an 180 degree unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. The house, built in 1999, enjoys 2 living rooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, both with the ocean view.

The downstairs living room has a gas fireplace, perfect for returning from a day on the links. The house has 5 bedrooms en-suite; in addition there is a 6th bathroom in the center hall. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views.

The kitchen is very spacious with an eating area attached. A washer and dryer are located in the back pantry off the kitchen that also includes a large hot press. There is also a game room off the kitchen which has a real fireplace.

The Smugglers Inn, a 4 star Inn, is located half way between Triphailme and the golf course. The Smugglers offers fine dining at night as well as breakfast and lunch for those who don't care to cook. Triphailme is 3/4 of a mile from the village along the coast.

Brenda O'Sullivan, our house and reservations manager, is a wonderful resource for almost anything you could think of while staying at Triphailme. She can arrange airport pick up and drop off, drivers for evening activities, extra house cleaning, in-house catering and babysitters to mention a few. If you want to fish the local lake for gold medal salmon and trout with a guide, plan a unforgettable hiking trip, set up golf tee times or go horse back riding, Brenda will arrange it.

In addition to the world ranked Waterville Golf Links and Skellig Bay Golf Club, you have other spectacular golf courses to choose from. Dooks, Tralee, Killarney Fish and Game and Ballybunion are all an easy drive for day trips.

Touring scenic Valentia Island, lunching in the charming fishing village of Portmagee, or shopping at the world famous Chocolate Factory in Ballinskelligs is short half a day trip.

You can drive the historic and beautiful Ring of Kerry and lunch and shop in Kenmare and or Killarney.

We have been coming to Waterville since 1994 and consider it coming home when we return. We enjoy the golf, the fishing, the hiking, the scenic drives and the wonderful food. The choices for either pub food or fine dining are plentiful and close by. All the meat and fish are raised and caught locally. One never tires of our ocean views. The people of Waterville are the friendliest people in the world.

The Owner purchased this house in 1999

We initially came to Waterville for its top links golf course but now we enjoy the entire Irish experience when we return there. The lake and ocean fishing draws anglers from all over Europe. The spectacular irish landscape makes biking, hiking and strolling memorable. It is also an artist's dream come true.

The house is ideal for golf vacations. The rooms can comfortably accommodate 4 couples or 2 foursomes of golf buddies. Our home is also perfect for family reunions. The Smugglers Inn is a short stroll away and can accommodate your overflow. It is also open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The golf, views, hiking, restaurants and people are what visitors love the most when they come to Waterville.

A Little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5
We have been coming to Ireland for 25 yrs. My Husband was born right here, outside of Waterville, so we come home very often to visit family. I can tell you, with all honesty, that this is by far, the best home we have ever stayed in. If nothing else, the views from almost any window in the home, take your breath away, and make you feel like you are in paradise. Having tea in one of the numerous, comfortable sitting areas, or just relaxing out by the front lawn, makes one want to stay forever. The house has 5 spacious bedrooms, each with its own bath, and the beds are very comfortable. Then there is the wonderful, large kitchen, with everything you could want, and enough room to have lots of family gatherings. Off the kitchen is a very cozy room with a peat fireplace, that we would sit in every night, and enjoy a glass of wine, and lots of conversation, before going to bed. The home is very close to town, golf, and the beach, so many activities are right there, at your fingertips. Another nice thing about this rental, is Brenda. She is a phone call away, to answer any, and all questions you might have about the home, the areas activities, etc. I have to say also, that Jim, (Mr. Hall, the owner, is very easy to talk to also!) Everything about this home says, "Stay here, you wil fall in love with it" just as we have.

Owner's Response: Duone,
I am so happy you love Triphailme the way we do. I am sorry that the weather wan't more cooperative on your last visit. Everything that you describe about the house and area I can relate to and agree with you. I get excited about Waterville just writing about it. I am headed over in 2 weeks and will take some pictures to show you how the village fared from the storms.

Beach, Golf and Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5
Jim,
Just a note to say that your house was perfect and we had a great stay there for the week. All the comforts of home and the views and proximity to beach and golf could not have been better. We also enjoyed some of your musical collection especially the "Gypsy King" CD which got a few of us going!
Thanks again, I hope we get back there soon.

Waterville in September

  • 5 of 5
We stayed just two nights here. The home is very nice and the location in wonderful. The owner was very helpful with hints of what to see. We got in late and Brenda set us up with a light meal at O'Dwyers. She called ahead for us and Deidre was waiting outside for us. The Skeelig Ring is what she said to see. We followed her advise and it was breathtakingly beautiful. I highly recommend seeing this part of Ireland. I also highly recommend this home. It is very nice and accessable to everything. I am so glad I found this property and made this connection for our trip.

LP- Napa, CA - Amazing

  • 5 of 5
I have visited this special home on four separate occasions with family and friends and there is nothing like it. I will continue to make a point to visit this home and Waterville regularly. The house is wonderfully decorated and all the rooms are spacious and comfortable with their own bathrooms and views of the ocean. The location is perfect; near to town and Waterville Golf Links with an unobstructed view of the ocean. The golf course is second to none as far as I am concerned, and the staff is as friendly as can be. The town is like something out of a movie- a quaint, ideyllic small Irish town in the southwest portion of the Country. I am convinced everyone in Waterville is friendly, at least everyone I've met on my multiple visits. On the trips, we play a round of golf, grab a pint at the nearby Smugglers Inn and then head to town for dinner at the Huntsman, or just make dinner in the wonderful kitchen in this special home and sit by the fire. Every visit is a truly memorable and relaxing experience and I can't wait for the next trip.

Owner's Response: Louis, Thanks for your review and you are always welcome at Triphailme and in Waterville. I don't know if you have been back since they redid some of the holes at WGL, but if you haven't played since the changes you must come back. It is always nice to have such wonderful people like you abd your family and friends stay at the house. Happy holidays and all the best.

The home is exquisite, cozy and classy all at the same time! It is a lovely house with heavenly views and fabulous fireplace. It has enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate a large family... or all of your friends. It is near everything.. town, golf course, restaurant and especially the water.
I would go back in a heartbeat!:)
