UNIQUE PERIOD PROPERTIES WITH GAMES ROOM & SAUNA.IDEAL FOR FAMILIES.

Caherdaniel House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 5-26 guests in 3 different period properties within same grounds.

Westcove House, The Stables & Garden Cottage are three wonderful unique period properties, full of history and character set in the same grounds overlooking the beautiful Kenmare estuary in South Kerry. Georgian Westcove House comfortably sleeps 10 while the converted Stables & wonderfully restored Garden Cottage sleep 11 & 5. Together all three properties are ideal for reunions, get-togethers & celebrations of special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries or any other type of ‘gathering’ you may be planning. Yet all properties are also secluded enough to be rented separately (although mainly only available independently outside of high season - please contact owner for more details)

The elegant dining room in Westcove House, overlooking the waters of Castlecove harbour, comfortably seats 18 (max. 26) and various delicious catering options can be provided. (Contact owner for details) Live music/dancing can be arranged for guests in our games room which adjoins The Stables but is also accessible from the outside.

Our games room is also ideal for holding talks, classes, activities & demonstrations for a wide variety of interest groups. Art groups delight in our north-facing studio, while walking groups can revive weary muscles in our sauna after a day’s rambling. All properties also have internet access, BBQs & garden furniture. Enjoy a drink on the terrace watching our field of decorative Soay sheep at play, or the ever-changing light and colour of Kerry's mystical landscape. A large lawn with swings is perfect for children or playing games...or even erecting a marquee for a party/small wedding. We also have a rowing boat available at guests own risk.

Our location is fantastic for outdoor pursuits from cycling to fishing, sailing to walking. Golf courses in our area are among the best in the world and within an hours drive you will find several top class facilities making Westcove also an ideal base for golfers. Whatever you enjoy doing this unique collection of excellently equipped homes are perfect for a holiday that will live long in your memory.

My name is Susannah Adlington and I am a portrait artist living in Hampshire, England with my husband Michael. My father’s family have had Irish connections for several hundred years, and my parents bought Westcove House in the early 60s … since then four generations of our family have been enjoying holidays here – we just love the place and feel sure that you would too. Indeed many of our guests return to Westcove time and time again – something which we view as the highest form of praise!

Susannah Adlington purchased this house in 1962

Westcove is very dear to our family - we have spent many years upgrading and improving Westcove House, and renovating the Stables, Garden Cottage and Pier Cottage whilst retaining their character and charm. The income we receive from renting out our properties at Westcove when we ourselves are not here, helps with the ever-increasing costs involved with the upkeep of period properties, whilst hopefully enabling us to share this much loved, unique and magical place with others for many more generations to come.

We are aware that you, our visitors, will all have different requirements and interests, so we try to be as flexible as possible to ensure your stay at Westcove surpasses all your expectations.

Westcove and the surrounding area is teeming with history, character and charm...there is so much to see and do. If you choose to stay home the gardens and terraces are magical places for dining or relaxing whilst admiring the views over the harbour and hills beyond. Even sitting by a window, the scenery and light is always changing as cloud shadows move with the wind across the water and bog-lands. The stresses and cares of the world just melt away ....

Loved all the (Westcove) houses, beautiful weather

  • Submitted: Jan 9, 2012
  • Stayed: Jun 2011
We had the most wonderful time at Westcove in June! The weather was beautiful and the location of the home was just breathtaking. We loved all of the houses, but most of all we loved the people who work for you! They were so kind and helpful to us. Ireland is so beautiful...I feel so lucky to have have had the chance to take my children there.

We enjoyed every second of being here

  • Submitted: Nov 5, 2010
  • Stayed: Aug 2010
.......we arrived the first day, the sea, the green, the flowers and trees were bathed in a magic glance.... Every day we went out for excursions and returned happy, full of impressions and with wind in our hair. The cosy Garden Cottage with its beautiful kitchen and lovely decorated rooms topped everything!! We felt so great and enjoyed every second of being here, especially in the mornings and evenings when the light became magic. the Irish people are lovely - friendly and helpful. In the Blind Piper - delicious food - and Freddies Bar we were warmly welcomed and enjoyed the Guinness, Vincent's charming service and the concert with Irish music. A big thank you to Katherine who was so helpful .... we are sure to come back again.

A couple of dark Guinness and then count the white sheep - a very nice bed for a wonderful sleep.
Sometimes rain and very often we had sun - this is the right region to have some fun.
A beautiful cottage to stay - this vacation, there is no other way.

Unforgettable honeymoon...

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 24, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2009
My wife and I had our honeymoon in the Stables, and brought 10 friends along. The accomodation was superb. The house is perfectly laid out - there is enough big space to have everybody together in one room, but there are also enough private spots if you want more quiet time. This I thought was ideal for a big group of old friends. The kitchen is well equipped, and the ready supply for turf for the fire was very welcome. The surrounding areas has some of the best hiking in Ireland, and the nearby beaches and pubs are the ideal place to relax. I can not recommend Westcove highly enough.

There is plenty to see and do in and around Caherdaniel . Visit DERRYNANE HOUSE & NATIONAL PARK, ancestral home of one of Ireland’s leading historical figures, Daniel O’Connell known as 'The Liberator'. A 19th century politician, Daniel championed the cause of the Irish in the British parliament and succeeded in achieving Catholic Emancipation, his house and grounds’ have been preserved and are open to the public in the summer. The house is surrounded by spectacular sub-tropical gardens & the lovely tea-rooms have an irresistible selection of home-made cakes. Don’t forget to pick up a map of the ‘FAIRY TRAIL’ and see how many ‘fairy houses’ you can discover in the gardens! In Caherdaniel stop for a Guinness at Freddy’s – a well known local pub which has been there forever, or go to The Blind Piper – a younger atmosphere and excellent food. In summer, there’s a bustling indoor & outdoor market in the Community Centre between 10 and 12.30 on Friday mornings with lots of local produce and crafts. There is also an excellent food market on Sundays.

The largest, finest & arguably the best example of a pre-Christian ring fort in Ireland, Staigue Fort is less than 15 mins drive away. It is worth a visit, especially on a clear day, when the views out over the Atlantic are breathtaking. Even older than is is the Tetrapod track on Valentia...of international importance, this series of footprnts of a tetrapod is the first fossil record of an amphibian animal in the world.

A boat trip to Skellig Islands,a UNESCO World Heritage site is a must! Rising majestically from the sea, Skellig Michael towers 218m above sea level and on the summit of this awe-inspiring rock is you will find perfectly preserved beehive huts, part of a 6th century monastic settlement. On the spectacular Small Skelligs 23,000 pairs of gannets nest on every available ledge making it the second largest gannet colony in the world.

Of course there are numerous lanes to wander and cycle along or take in the sea air on the beautiful beaches and dunes of Derrynane. There are also a couple of excellent, slightly more challenging walks you can try, starting from Westcove itself.

40 minutes drive west along the north coast of the beautiful Kenmare estuary, is the picturesque town of Kenmare itself, well-known for for its varied and tempting shops and teeming with excellent bars and restaurants ...a popular choice for the ladies, especially on Wednesdays when there is a lively market all year round selling everything from crafts and jewellery to a mouthwatering selection of cheeses, pates and other home made delicacies!

Drive south from Kenmare over spectacular mountain passes, to explore the Beara peninsula which has so much to offer visitors,from the imposing stately Bantry House, the sculpture park and a selection of beautiful gardens ...

A little further inland is the bustling town of Killarney with many lovely bars, restaurants, spas and of course its famous lakes and national park. Visit also the Gaelic speaking Dingle peninsula and take a trip to see Funghi - a wild bottlenose dolphin that has made the bay his home.

Wherever you are in Kerry you will find excellent and varied restaurants offering delicious seafood & quality local produce. The convivial atmosphere of the Irish pub is legendary & many serve great value home-cooked food. The whole family can be assured of a very warm welcome.Kerry people are known for their wit & stories... you will be drawn into conversation with the locals ....so enjoy making new friends, the 'craic' (fun) & stories ..and more stories!! Don't forget to catch a live music session some evening!

Westcove makes an ideal base for golfers wishing to play the legendary courses of the ‘Kingdom of Kerry’…. Set off after a full Irish breakfast and relax with a delicious home cooked dinner on your return. Use your own transport or a local minibus can be arranged to take you to any of the following courses – check their websites for details:

Within 25 mins drive – WATERVILLE – www.watervillegolflinks.ie – magnificent links course (always rated one of the top 10 in Ireland) – a must for serious golfers. SKELLIG BAY - www.skelligbay.com – a fairly new challenging course with breathtaking views over sea and lake – reasonable green fees. PARKNASILLA – www.parknasillahotel.ie - just east of Sneem – very scenic 12 hole course – fun for all the family.

Within 45 mins drive – RING OF KERRY – www.ringofkerrygolf.com – 18 holes with panoramic views over Kenmare Estuary – take a buggy unless you are a mountain goat! KENMARE – www.kenmaregolf.com – the first 9 holes of beautifully kept parkland are followed by a hillier 2nd 9 – good value for money and an excuse to visit this ‘shopper’s paradise’.
