Ballinskelligs House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, house sleeps 8, floor area = 2,000 sq. ft, 1 acre site

Red Cliff House is all about relaxation! Located in a peaceful and tranquil setting in County Kerry, with breathtaking views of Ballinskelligs Bay and Waterville, this beautiful self catering house has a wonderful sense of space and light. Situated on a secluded 1 acre site, it is finished to a high standard with underfloor heating installed throughout and each room is individually thermostatically controlled for your comfort.

A spacious living and dining room commands panoramic views of Reenroe beach, Waterville and Ballinskelligs Bay while the kitchen is fully equipped with all modern appliances. Two of the four bedrooms are ensuite while the large main bathroom has a whirlpool bath and walk in power shower. Outside there is a lovely patio area and open veranda overlooking Reenroe beach and Ballinskelligs Bay which is a lovely place to sit and enjoy the wonderful surrounding views.

A perfect place for family and friends to relax and unwind after a day of sightseeing.

Beaches, Water Sports, Fishing: Whether you are relaxing in the living room or enjoying breakfast on the veranda Redcliff House offers you wonderful views of Reenroe beach and Ballinskelligs Bay area. It is these views and the peace and tranquility of the setting that our guest comment on as being one of the highlights of their stay. And in the evening you can watch the lights of Waterville flicker across the bay as the sun sets.

The beaches in the area are great. Reenroe beach is only one mile away. This beach is over a mile long and is great for walking, running, surfing, horse riding, fishing and swimming with good sand for building sand castles too! Surfing classes are held here regularly, weather permitting, during the summer months. There are also several other beaches within easy reach of Red Cliff House including Ballinskelligs Beach. The house comes eqquipped with fold up beach charis and a picnic bag wich you can bring with you to the beach.

Boats can be hired locally for sea angling trips.

Walking, Hill Walking, Cycling: There are many local walks and cycling routes of various levels and abilities, all with great views of the country side. Bicyles can be hired locally in Caherciveen and the house has a large utility room/garage area where you can store bikes and fishing rods.

The Bolus Head walk in Ballinskelligs has fantastic views overlooking St. Finan’s Bay and the Skellig Rocks. Along the way you will visit the Cill Rialaig Famine Village, Cill Rialaig Artist’s Retreat, and the early Christian ruins of Cill Rialaig monastic settlement with Oratory and perhaps stop off at the Cill Rialaig Art Gallery and Cafe in Dungeagan Village or Barbara's coffee shop in Ballinskelligs for refreshments. There are many other walks in the area, including Bray Tower and Geokaun Mountain in Valentia, details of which are provided in our guide book in the house or from the local tourist office.

Other Local Attractions and Eating Out: There is plenty to see and do locally. A trip to the world famous Skelligs Rock herritage site is a must and boats leave during the Summer months from Ballinskelligs and Portmagee. Visit Valentia Island to see the Slate Quarry, Grotto and Light House or try candle making with the kids. Tour the Skellig Ring and the Ring of Kerry. Visit Skellig Chocolate factory in St. Finans Bay (The Glen) and sample their award winning choclate.

Cill Rialaig pre-famine village is located in Ballinskelligs and Cill Rialaig Art Gallery and Cafe is located in Dun Geagan village which is two miles away. You will be spoilt for choice if you wish to go hill walking or cycling and there are many archaeological sites of interest in the area.

There are plenty of places to choose from for eating out from cafes to pub food to gourmet restaurants. Fresh seafood is a speciality in many restaurants and pubs. Many pubs have Traditional Irish music and dancing nights which are well worth going to see.

We had the most wonderful week at Red Cliff House - the house itself is magnificent with every comfort of home and more! The view from the living room is amazing - the sea, mountains, islands and even the sound of the sea - most relaxing holiday and highly recommended. Many thanks Maria and John - didn't want to leave but at least we left refreshed and ready to face the world again!
