About the property

Former Railroaders Cottage, lovingly restored with contemporary furnishings

As a "time-guised" cottage, this former coaching inn, built in 1890, is to be described. Modernized in 2015, attention has been paid to maintaining traditional doors, staircases and stone walls with great attention to detail. The original floor on the first floor tells the almost 130 year old history of the Railway Cottage. Even the modern keeps the good old times promise: All rooms are zeitgeistig equipped with a sense of antiques, international art and design at the cutting edge.

Please note that the cottage is not suitable for children under 12 years old.

Here you will find a small "goody bag" with some local touches to make you familiar with the area and to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

Idyllically nestled against a small forest at the foot of Curra Mountain, Glenbeigh Railway Cottage offers breathtaking views of Coolroe Mountain and the Behy River Valley.

The country-style kitchen offers all modern amenities, such as an AGA gas electric oven, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, microwave, electric kettle, toaster and coffee maker.

The cozy living room is equipped with a 4K Smart TV, an X-Box OneS, Bluetooth Hifi and a selection of CDs, DVDs and games. A small studiolo on the first floor offers a computer-suitable desk with direct views of the valley.

Throughout the house Wi-Fi is available with fast Internet.

The luxurious marble bathroom on the first floor has an easily accessible, large shower and the ground floor has a guest toilet with washer and dryer.

The entire house has a gas central heating. Cottage Style wood fire stoves are located both in the living room and in the kitchen


Glenbeigh on the Wild Atlantic Way is just a 2 minute drive away

Within a radius of 50 km is an impressive selection of famous sights of the legendary Ring of Kerry. We recommend a drive across the Ring of Skellig, west of Portemagee and a visit to the wonderful Kerry Cliffs, overlooking the Skellig Islands. We also recommend a visit to the subtropical gardens of Kells Bay with its unusual fern trees just 10 minutes away. You will also find one of these trees on our property.

For hikers, the picturesque Kerry Walk Way leads right past the property. The Behy River, just a stone's throw away, offers ideal conditions for anglers and fly fishermen (a selection of rubber boots is at your disposal).

Rossbeigh Beach is just 3 minutes' drive away and offers endless sandy beaches and dunes as well as sporting activities such as horseback riding, kayaking, surfing or "stand-up paddling". At the neighboring Cromane Beach you will find a small golfing gem, the Dooks Golf Club.

Kerry Airport at Farranfore is 40 minutes away by car. Killorglin can be reached in 12, Killarney in 25 minutes. The popular Dingle is 50 minutes away

The towns of Glenbeigh and Killorglin offer a range of pristine pubs and fine dining. A selection of supermarkets can also be found nearby.

Top Kerry Cottage

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful secluded cottage at the foot of Curra mountain only 1km from the lovely town of Glenbeigh and close to Rossbeigh beach, it was the perfect spot from which to explore Kerry as it is so central and on the Ring of Kerry itself. We were able to explore the woods behind us from a little path beside the house which made a very pleasant walk to the town.Without doubt it was lovingly restored to a very high standard and had everything to make our stay very comfortable. It had a great kitchen and shower, a very comfortable sofa and beds and a large TV with free Wi-Fi which was great for my teenage children and we lit the wood burning stove every night. I'd highly recommend this cottage. Couldn't fault it .Just loved it !

Great stay in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable house, great shower, in a quiet area with a wonderful country view. Large kitchen had everything we needed to make meals. The washer/dryer came in handy. Nicely decorated with interesting art pieces. Location was a perfect base to explore Killarney N.P., Ring of Kerry, Skellig Michael, the Dingle Peninsula, and hike Carrauntoohil.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

What a great house to stay, every detail is made with love and attention. Very quiet area. And when it's rainy (happens sometimes in Ireland) it is a good place to be in te house. Well worth the money, highly recommended.

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in Glenbeigh und dazu noch wunderbares Sommerwetter. Im Haus hat es uns an nichts gefehlt! Super ausgestattet und sehr gute Betten. Auch die Betreuung vor Ort durch Gretta war super nett. Kommen gerne wieder.
