'KENMARE is one of the few places in the world that allows you to BE YOURSELF '

A once in a lifetime opportunity.

This property has Five bedrooms 5.5 bathrooms and sleeps 10 persons

Quiet 'Get-Away' location in the heart of Ireland's most sought after place to be. Kenmare - All Ireland winner of Ireland's Best Kept Town Kenmare is deemed Heritage town planned by Sir William Petty in 1670.

Relax out in the privacy of your own garden area and enjoy a bar-b-que in the evening sun after a healthy walk or game of golf in the course a hundred metres from our front door!!!

Brandylochs offers you the once in a lifetime opportunity to connect with yourself - and others. Relax in the mature gardens and listen to the varied birdsong from the goldfinch the robin and the thrush.

The house is spacious;the entrance hallway leads to a balcony mounted stairway to the five bedrooms each with it own toilet , bath or shower; each bedroom overlooks the Kenmare Golf Course or the Gardens & Woodlands. Irish and International paintings are displayed throughout.

The comfort of our AGA cooker ensures a warmth and cosiness year round. This is an oil burning cooker that radiates heat 24/7 and is an essential part of a European home!! We find the AGA great for drying and , would you believe , even ironing clothes. It's great to have a stove that's always at the ready.

The house is heated by an oil fired central heating system which ensures great comfort all round. The fact that we also have two log burning fireplaces offers the opportunity for your regular fire-side chat!!! We supply a start up facilitiy for this option.

We also supply a Welcome Pack to enable you get started with the minimum of fuss and the least amount of shopping

The Kenmare Golf course is an 18 hole course and is a most welcoming club to all visitors.

Kenmare itself is a Food Haven- we have over 30 places for you to choose from within a 5 mile radius of the town. Our restaurants cannot be beaten for value or for quality.Kenmare also has two five star hotels along with various award winning restaurants, where fish is the speciality

The town stradles both the famous Ring of Kerry and The Ring Of Beara...both of which are a 'must see' in the area.

We can help you select routes for your walking and hiking needs

The town of Kenmare nestles between the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara - both very different in scenery and atmosphere. The National Park which has wild deer roaming the terrrain is located between Killarney and Kenmare.

Kenmare and the Ring of Beara is a haven for international Artists who take their inspiration from the natural light and colours of this magical landscape

Unfortunately Brandylochs is not really suitable for children

About TERRY & ANNE O' DOHERTY

I am a retired hotelier who has always enjoyed the pleasures of cycling. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to cycle up to Molls Gap for my cuppa of Earl Grey and a quiet read of the Irish Times.

The surrounding area offers multiple choices for walks and pick-nics. The scenery is simply outstanding

TERRY & ANNE O' DOHERTY purchased this chateau / country house in 1991

Why TERRY & ANNE O' DOHERTY chose Kenmare

Anne & I discovered Kenmare over twenty years ago; having lived all over Ireland, we realised the value of what we had come across in KENMARE and determined here was where we wanted to stay; now years later- No Regrets Whatsoever- Where else in Ireland is the countryside and the people so friendly. We have the highest mountains, the deepest lakes, the most dramatic coastline, the greatest sense of culture and music and the best of restaurants that Ireland has to offer ...What more is there to live for!!!

All your linen requirements are provided .....inclusive

What makes this chateau / country house unique

We have so many features that our guests reave about :

a) The fact that we have asn AGA stove that goes 24/7 and supplies an additional radiant heat throughout the house

b) The fact that we have a 15year mature garden surrounding the house offering a unique privacy

c) The fact that we are literally a stone's throw from the centre of town yet in a private cul-de-sac with loads of parking

d) the fact that we have literally a 'gallery' of original European Art on our walls for the delight of our guests.

All stores and restaurants are within a two minute walk from your front door. The weekly food market in the square on Wednesdays is a must. Golfers have to simply cross the road to enjoy one of Ireland's finest 18 hole parkland course overlooking the Kenmare Bay

Guestbook comments from the owner

My eight friends and I travelled from Boston, Ma to Kenmare for a friends wedding in July 2012. We were greeted by the generous host, Terry---who despite our late and staggered shuttle arrivals, waited to greet us all. Brandylochs is conveniently located, only a three minute walk to the main drag. We were able to walk to all of the wedding festivities. The house was perfect for our large group of women, with lots of showers, a big kitchen and two cozy sitting rooms to relax in. The owners went above and beyond, welcoming us with a bottle of wine and some home made brown bread. We planned on only staying three nights, but a couple of us extended our stay for another night. I highly recommend Brandylochs for large groups travelling to beautiful Kenmare. Thank you Brandylochs and the O'Doherty's for making this such a memorable trip.
