Ireland Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

Cottage Mary Rose is a beautiful 18th century, white-washed, thatched roof cottage. One of Ireland's few remaining, it is what you dream of when thinking of Ireland. Nestled in the pastoral valley of Mount Eagle with a stream running through the peaceful cottage garden. We boast an all natural garden. It is surrounded by its original dry stone walls and fuchsia.

You are welcomed by the bright red double door. As you enter, you get the feeling that you have stepped back in time.With its stone fireplace and high lofted ceilings in the sitting room it is a great room for conversation and games. Antiques fill the cottage with traditional and comfortable furniture as well. It is amazing to think of what this cottage has survived. It has truly come a long way from traditional Irish life to having the luxuries we dream of. There is a Jacuzzi tub and dishwasher as well as a bright red Aga stove so you can actually enjoy cooking. Truly an ideal place to call home while exploring the many treasures of CountyKerry. Internet now available.

About William Harty

My family is of Irish descent. Our first time to the Emerald Isle was in 1996. I fell in love with it as every one does and knew then that some day I would have a home there.........a Thatched Cottage. Being involved in architechture,I had always been fascinated in thatched roof cottages. When I purchased Cottage Mary Rose in 2000 I never realised how much I would fall in love with it. It is my true passion, named after my mother, Mary Rose Bowler, I wanted to share this amazing bit of Irish History with others....

William Harty purchased this cottage in 2000

Why William Harty chose Ireland

I wanted a historic thatched cottage off of the beaten track but close enough to tourist attractions. I am an avid gardener and knew that this location was perfect for a great garden. There are fuschia & camelias every where! The stream was the frosting on the cake. So dramatic because of the ravine and rushing water below. The sound is so calming and tranquil. I preferred the small village of Cordal because you get a TRUE feel of the real Ireland instead of the touristy areas. I was happy enough with the Church and Kearney's Grocer.....I thought all it needed was a dream was answered and Hughes Pub was built by Sean Hughes a local Cordal lad in 2006. It is a beautiful pub and great for local gab, a great Pint and a game of pool. All with in a 5 minute walk. Our great cottage has stood the test of time. I love sharing this peice of Heaven with others.........

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage Mary Rose is a wonderful blend of a living bit of history. Add to this a Jacuzzi tub, rain shower and hot tub over looking a stream and you have it all. We even provide WiFi internet connection. Large kitchen which is wonderful for entertaining. The Heritage cooker is probably the best method of cooking food. Besides the Irish farm table there is also a front patio for dining and the deck where you can dine with the sounds of the peaceful stream and song of the birds. Nothing beats relaxing in the hot tub at the end of a long day while enoying the stars above...........absolute Heaven.............

Perfect for our golf trip

  • 5 of 5

Six of the top 100 golf courses in the world are located within a 2 hour drive from Cottage Mary Rose, making it the perfect home base for our trip. Modern conveniences in an old world home made the stay even better. Dennis and Eileen were the consummate hosts as well. At the end of each day, a 45 minute spa ensured we were well rested and ready for the next grueling day out on the golf courses...which I must say were truly spectacular. The surrounding towns of Castle Island, Tralee and Killarney provide a well-rounded blend of shopping, restaurants, people-watching and of course, pubs. Five stars all the way!

Foxy Vixens on vacation

  • 5 of 5

I and 5 friends booked a weekend away in Mary Rose Cottage, we mostly chilled in the cottage as we wanted a retreat from our busy everyday lives. It was perfect. So homely and well kept. We felt it's warm welcoming ambiance as soon as we arrived . The pictures do not it justice. Each nook and cranny had hidden gems and the garden was so fascinating to explore. The cottage was kept beautifully and gave us everything our heart desired. It was so well stocked from welly boots in every size, various different types of teas, a bowl full of fresh fruit and a enough turf and wood to do us for a week. We were all so sad to be leaving as we had fallen in love with this haven.

Beyond expectation!

  • 5 of 5

The thatched roof Cottage Mary Rose took us back in time with the advantage of modern conveniences. The quaint country setting was a delightful retreat from busy Dublin that captured my heart and soul. Our greeters Dennis and Eileen were very kind and met us with a loaf of warm brown Irish bread and a bowl of fruit. The informational greeting packet we received before we left home was very helpful especially in locating the Cottage (put Kearney's gas in the GPS). Wished we could have stayed longer than our 3 nights ............. Very worth considering for an extended retreat.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Very much enjoyed our stay at the cottage. Great location for exploring Kerry and the cottage itself was perfect for our needs. Should also note that the local caretakers were extremely accommodative. Would definitely stay here again or recommend to others.

A dream holiday location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved staying in the cottage. It was like stepping back in time but with wifi and a hot tub! All the best facilities and home comforts. It's felt personal with out feeling like you were staying in someone else's house. Perfect location and very friendly support staff with Dennis and Eileen. Could have stayed for longer!

Lovely thatched cottage

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in this cottage. It had everything we needed. I think that it would be better not to advertise the hot tub until there is a plan for changing the water between guests as it was quite dirty. This is a perfect location for visiting the Dingle, Ring of Kerry, and many other sites.

Owner's Response: The hot tub is of course one of many very important features of the cottage. Our care takers do their very best to make sure that every thing is perfect, including the water in the tub. There was a problem with the filtration system which has since been taken care of. We do stress that our amazing care takers are a phone call away if some thing needs to be tended to. Come and enjoy the many upgraded features we offer at Cottage Mary Rose!
