About John Wallace

We fell in love with Kerry and Kenmare in particular in 1990 and spent the following 12 years trying to find the site to build our holiday cottage. It took us longer than expected but we love the house and its location so close to Kenmare! We hope you agree!

John Wallace purchased this cottage in 2003

Why John Wallace chose Kenmare

We love the natural stone finish and warmth that the cottage has. With the new extension of a sitting room and guest bathroom we now have all the space that a family or couple could want for their vacation in Kenmare. An open fireplace and now a stove are just wonderful to light and sit in chatting and talking about the days adventures while sipping a glass of wine!

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is in a large garden of about two acres, the Cleady River flows to the rear and sounds so relaxing when sitting on the patio at the end of a busy day sightseeing! With wi-fi, you can investigate where to visit on the following day or catch up with emails. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard with all the equipment needed to prepare your own gastronomic feast - all you need are the ingredients and ability!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed Kenmare and especially your cottage very much. We loved sitting at the table, playing cards and looking out into the garden. In the evening it was very romantic to sit in the sofa with all the candles. And the kitchen was so well equipped. My son loved the book “Chicken licken”, which we found in the bedroom. We also enjoyed the cds.



The landscape was great, we took a lot of photos. The highlight for the children was watching the seals when we did a boat-trip.

Cleady River Cottage-great family location

  • 5 of 5
Three generations of my family want to extend our gratitude to you for our wonderful vacation at Cleady River Cottage this August. We truly enjoyed this spacious and comfortable vacation home. The pictures you provided do not do justice to the lovely setting and exceptional accomodations! We used the cottage as our home base as we explored Kenmare, the beautiful Ring of Kerry and the breathtaking West Cork seaside. Each evening we gathered on the deck or by the fireplace to share our day's adventures and then slept to the sound of the river. Our two-year old grandaughter had a wonderful time running in the large and beautifully landscaped yard and playing with the toys that were so graciously provided. The well-appointed kitchen allowed us to enjoy leisurely family breakfasts and having a washer and dryer on the premises just added to our comfort. The owner and the caretaker were exceptionally responsive to all of our needs and inquiries; they simplified the process for both renting and accessing the cottage and they continue to respond to our correspondences now that we have returned home. This was our first Irish vacation but we look forward to returning to Ireland and to Cleady cottage again. Thank you for memories that will last a lifetime!

Owner's Response: As always we are delighted to hear that another family has enjoyed a wonderful holiday in our cottage! I'll have to perfect my photography skills and put some better pictures up as Maureen informs me that they don't do the cottage justice! At least our people skills don't need updating yet and we're very pleased that the Maureen, Ed and their family found our cottage as delightful as we do.

Komfortabel und gemütlich

  • 5 of 5
Wir verbrachten 2 sehr schöne Urlaubswochen hier. Das Haus ist so wie beschrieben. Kleinere Probleme (WiFi) wurden sofort behoben. Das Haus ist sauber, Handtücher und Bettwäsche sind mehr als ausreichend vorhanden. Man ist auf ein Fahrzeug angewiesen, da der Weg nach Kenmare zu Fuß doch etwas weit ist. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Kenmare gibt es genügend. Die Sehenswürdigkeiten am Ring of Kerry und of Beara sind sehr gut erreichbar. Wir waren vom Bantry-House und Muckross-House begeistert. Wandermöglichkeiten gibt es im Killarney-Nationalpark genügend, aber auch an den Küsten lässt es sich gut wandern (z.B. In der Nähe von Eyeries).Wir können das Haus uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank an die Vermieter!

GREAT place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
You can't find a nicer place to stay in the Kenmare area! 3 lovely bedrooms, 4 (yes, 4) baths, fully equipped kitchen and adjoining dining room, laundry room, and lovely living room and den with fireplaces. Just outside of Kenmare, the Ring of Kerry, the Ring of Beara and Dingle Peninsula. What more could you ask for? How about approximately 20 terrific places to eat in Kenmare and waterfalls at the back of the property!

The owner is wonderful to work with and the contact person in Kenmare is always there to help. Don't even think about staying anywhere else. This is the place!

This was a wonderful home and hated to leave!!

  • 5 of 5
This was such a beautiful home in a great setting. It was well-equipped with everything we needed whether for cooking, cleaning, relaxing, or sleeping. Having a washer and dryer was such a help as we were there for one week. The kitchen had everything one needed as well as the entire home. I cannot say enough about this home as it was so PERFECT!! The owner was so helpful and gave us great suggestions for places to eat as well as information about the area.
We were a group of 5 women: 3 from the US and 2 from Denmark and it was such a relaxing place to start and end our days while there. It was so clean, comfortable, and felt right at home here.
I know we all loved it here and I would recommend it highly to friends and family. And I hope to return one day!

Lovely Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Cleady River Cottage -- the cottage is extremely comfortable, is fully equipped for a family - with plenty of room to spare. The owners have thought of everything. The owner is very helpful and very responsive to all questions and information. He quickly responded to our questions. The cottage is located near to Kenmare - a lovely base for visiting the Ring of Kerry and Beara Peninsula (we thought the BEara was even nicer than the Ring of Kerry!)... and for hiking in Killarny Ntl. Park. This is a walker and hiking paradise! We were very, very sorry to leave this bit of paradise and would highly recommend the cottage most highly. Our group of middle-age siblings and spouses had a terrific stay!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review of our cottage and your kind comments about my response times! I do try and help our guests as much as possible. We always want our guests to get a real "feel" for Kenmare and the South West so that they tell their friends and family and hopefully return again themselves someday soon!

Wonderful stay in a wonderful cottage!

  • 5 of 5
I asked my son which of the places he liked the most in our 2-week trip to Ireland. He said the first house (Cleady River cottage) because they had toys to play with! Here's the thing though, we liked this place the best too. The cottage was fantastic. So, much room to spread out. The wifi was great and the new add on living space was awesome for relaxing in the evenings. We took a nice walk into Kenmare and shopped at the local markets. We drove out to Mizen Head (you must do this!) and played at Barleycove beach. My kids were in heaven, and the beach was beautiful.
More than anything, the friendly service from top to bottom was great. The communication for booking was most excellent and appreciated! If you are traveling to Ireland, do not hesitate to book this wonderful cottage!
