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.

About Susannah Adlington

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

Why Susannah Adlington chose Caherdaniel

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.

What makes this house unique

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 ....

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just to let you know what a lovely holiday we all had.

Katherine looked after us beautifully. Delicious suppers and breakfasts with all

shopping done on the nights we barbecued . It couldnt have been easier .. perfect .. I could have a real holiday!

....the trip to Skellig Islands was extraordinary....

Parknasilla Golf Course was a real gem (and only €15 a round!)

Unforgettable honeymoon...

  • 5 of 5
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.

Perfect Kerry Retreat

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at Westcove House for the past two years (we usually take the end of July/beginning of August week) and have booked for a third year this summer, so you can probably tell this will be a favourable review. We find the accommodation works well if a large group goes together - the house comfortably sleeps 10 of us and with extended family/friends in the stables and the small house, we were able to make the best use of all the space and of course, the games room on wet days.

The house itself is very comfortable (not deeply luxurious, but with everything you could need), clean and with beautiful views over the water. We found Katherine's catering to be the easiest way to go, with hot meals prepared, served and cleared away. As long as she has some notice, this also allows for barbecues or eating out (or self-catering if you want). There is also a very dangerous bakery round the corner - making fresh bread, scones, croissants and cakes - it's walkable!

There is the most beautiful beach at Derrynane, about a couple of miles away, a fabulous horseshoe of sand and great surf for bodyboarding (bring wetsuits if possible, we had to drag the children out of the water at the end of the day!). We also go horseriding on the beach through the local stables which is hugely exhilerating. They cater for all levels of horsemanship and the younger children also enjoyed some bouncy trots on the sand. There's a good pub on the way to the beach (The Blind Piper) where we enjoyed a great evening of Irish music - it got louder and faster as the evening went on!

We usually do a couple of walks as well - part of the Kerry Way (I think!) which gives beautiful views following the coast, and in a loop from Sneem through peat bogs, farms, forest and a small quarry. The only downside is the variety in the weather - you can't expect guaranteed sunshine. As long as you prepare for some damp days, it shouldn't stop you having fun.

We look forward to going every year and was half-reluctant to write a review - torn between wanting more people to have the Westcove Experience and hoping nobody books Our Week!

Westcove is the Best

  • 5 of 5
My family and traveling friends stay at top of the line villas in Italy and Ireland almost every year...and I can honestly say that our experiences at Westcove far outshine the others. Whether we have a large group staying at the House, the Stables and the Garden Cottage or a small intimate group just at the House we see happy faces every morning for breakfast, planning their days activities in the fascinating surrounding areas of Kerry...and we see those same faces around the peat fire in the Bar before dinner, telling wonderful Irish stories. Then the cook/housekeeper pops in to bring an appetizer and announce that dinner is ready. Another great day at Westcove.

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.
