This original stone faced Traditional Irish Cottage is situated just off the 'Ring of Kerry' road. It is between the villages of Sneem & Castlecove in a place called Derreenauliffe. It is a rural setting, between the mountains on one side, and the sea on the other.
It was built in 1917, and was occupied until 1995 by a lady called Annie O''Leary. We thought it appropriate to call this wonderful haven after her, hence 'Annie's Cottage'.
In 1997 the interior of the cottage was modified and superbly designed to optimize space and light, while retaining all the charm and character of a traditional cottage, eg beams on the ceilings downstairs & sloping ceilings upstairs. It is tastefully furnished with the comfort of the guest in mind.
There is a washing machine/dryer, and central heating throughout, essential for winter visitors.
From the doorstep of this beautiful cottage you can smell the different fragrances of the countryside.
Downstairs; There is a cosy sitting room with an oil stove, TV, Radio & CD player. A kitchen with all modern conveniences, eg dishwasher, microwave, George Foreman grill, steamer as well as all the usual oven, hob & fridge. There is a small freezer in the house, but you can use a bigger freezer that belongs to the agent, if you so wish.
Next to the kitchen is a very private and relaxing sun-room/dining-room/ lounge. There are French doors leading from this room on to a patio and secure garden. You can sit, relax and sip your favourite beverage, or have a BBQ, while your children play in the garden under your watchful eye. Or just sit in the privacy of these tranquil surroundings and read your favourite book.
The shower is electric, and is nestled half-way up the stairs. Upstairs there is a toilet and hand basin.
