Overview

Caherdaniel Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 units or 1 interconnecting cottage sleeping 2-11 in 5 bedrooms

A pair of old stone coastguard cottages renovated to a high standard in a unique setting 25 yards from their own shingle beach with breathtaking views over the lovely Kenmare Estuary off the southern tip of the beautiful 'Ring of Kerry' in south-west Ireland.

Pier Cottage can be rented throughout the year as 2 separate units or one interconnecting cottage. West End sleeps up to 7 in 3 bedrooms and East End up to 4 - 1 double 1 twin.

The countryside immediately surrounding Castlecove is ideally suited for all types of walking, ranging from gentle strolls along lovely sandy beaches to more serious hikes over craggy hills. The famous 'Kerry Way' walk takes you along the ridge of hills, all the way from Waterville to Kenmare and is well signed, but still wonderfully unspoiled.

You can swim, row and shrimp by the cottage or just relax and watch the seals!. There are several sandy beaches within ten minutes drive.

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 after coming across a 'for sale' sign whilst holidaying in the area. It was love at first sight and 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!

Why Susannah Adlington chose Caherdaniel

We purchased and restored this pair of old coastguard cottages when they came on the market in the early 1990s. Pier Cottage has a unique, magical location situated below Westcove House with its own shingle beach.

What makes this cottage unique

Pier Cottage is on the water's edge and immerses you in the wild natural beauty of Kerry. It is ideal for all kinds of activities such as hill-walking, sightseeing, watersports or writing and perfect for a quiet secluded break. Watch the seals playing on the rocks and the magical ever-changing light. As the sun sets over the Atlantic, you can nestle up by the fire, guarded against the elements and listen to the cries of the curlews...whilst you sip and Irish whiskey!

Guestbook comments from the manager

… a big thank you for looking after us and being so accommodating with providing the downstairs room for my parents. They LOVED it! Pier Cottage was amazing and coziest place I have certainly stayed! The stormy weather only added to the charm of it and howling wind made us doubly enjoy sitting by the fire, sipping whiskey and playing many of the games provided at the cottage! Truly perfect place to escape the everyday stresses and spend some quality time with family!

The area was so peaceful and beautiful.. It was really tough to leave!

Wonderful family holiday

  • 5 of 5

It was our first visit and hopefully not our last. A family of four (2 adults, 2 children). We had one week at the Garden Cottage and one week at Pier Cottage (also owned by the family). It was a wonderful holiday, the locations of both were cottages were so beautiful, especially Pier Cottage with its view of the sea. The cottages were very comfortable and cosy, it all made for a truly relaxing holiday.

The properties are in a fantastic location to discover the surrounding area, with the stunning beach at Derrynane under 10 minutes away by car or a walk along the Kerry Way over hills with breathtaking views. It all made for a truly relaxing holiday.

East end, Pier Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at East End, Pier Cottage on two occasions and both times had wonderful relaxing weeks. It is such an idyllic location – quiet but within easy reach of beautiful beaches and scenic car rides. We whiled away the hours in front of the Cottage and were delighted when seals appeared in the waters below. We were fascinated to see the statue of Charlie Chaplin in nearby Waterville (he was a regular visitor). The Lakes of Killarney are within easy reach by car and are spectacular, especially if the mountain route is taken. A trip to the Skelligs was unmissable – the birds and seal sanctuary something only seen before on TV. There are so many suggestions for outings that many visits would be needed. Pier Cottage is the perfect holiday base for families or couples. (ET)

Einmaliges Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Dieses wunderbare Haus liegt in sehr ruhiger Lage direkt am Meer, in der Nähe eines kleinen Hafens. Morgens tummeln sich die Robben auf den Klippen vor dem Haus. Der Kerry-Way (ein sehr schöner Wanderweg) ist in einer viertel Stunde zu erreichen und erschließt den Gebirgszug. Ein sehr schöner Sandstrand ist auch gut zu Fuß zu erreichen. Den Abend kann man gemütlich am Kamin ausklingen lassen. Was braucht es mehr, um einen schönen Urlaub zu genießen?

Besonders hervorragend war der Kontakt zur Vermietung. Die Begleitung vor Ort ist ausgesprochen freundlich und jederzeit bei Fragen ansprechbar.

Pier Cottage is situated 15kms west of Sneem and 15 kms east of Watervillle (with its championship golfcourse ) overlooking the Kenmare Estuary in South Kerry - an ideal location from which to explore this magical part of Ireland.

You can row, fish and shrimp from rocks just by Pier Cottage; or go deep sea, lake or river fishing. In summer there is a fun watersports centre nearby; 5 excellent golf courses within 40 mins drive-see details below-, horseriding for all ages and endless beautiful walks.

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.

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!

GOLF: Pier Cottage makes an ideal base for golfers wishing to play the legendary courses of the ‘Kingdom of Kerry’…. 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.
