Kenmare Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Modern self catering cottage Kenmare, three bedrooms sleeps six, open fire, WiFi
A beautiful, modern, newly extended self catering rental house only five minutes drive from the bustling market town of Kenmare in the south west of Ireland on the Ring of Kerry. This self catering vacation cottage, which is in its own grounds of over two acres alongside the Cleady River has a (hidden) waterfall giving the relaxing sound of running water, has all the conveniences you would require on a self catering holiday. This self catering cottage has Wi-Fi (new for 2013) satellite TV, washer, dryer, dishwasher and three bedrooms which sleep up to six (two doubles and one twin). Two bedrooms are en suite with a further bathroom for the third room and a separate guest bathroom with wet room is new for 2103. A cot and high chair can be made available on request at no additional cost. For those cooler evenings and nights there is an open fire place for burning logs and turf. Relax in the new sittingroom with feature fireplace and stove whilst listening to your music through the BOSE stereo system. We welcome well behaved house trained pets! Kenmare is a beautiful heritage town located in Kerry, southwest Ireland. It is about a 2 hour drive from Shannon, 90 mins from Cork and 3.5 hours from Dublin.

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.
