Our home ('Triphailme') is a 3,000 sq ft. private home located on the Irish coast in southwest Kerry. It sits 500 yards from Waterville Golf Links ranked in the top 5 of Ireland's best Golf courses and 54th in the top 100 of the world. The house has an 180 degree unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. The house, built in 1999, enjoys 2 living rooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, both with the ocean view.
The downstairs living room has a gas fireplace, perfect for returning from a day on the links. The house has 5 bedrooms en-suite; in addition there is a 6th bathroom in the center hall. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views.
The kitchen is very spacious with an eating area attached. A washer and dryer are located in the back pantry off the kitchen that also includes a large hot press. There is also a game room off the kitchen which has a real fireplace.
The Smugglers Inn, a 4 star Inn, is located half way between Triphailme and the golf course. The Smugglers offers fine dining at night as well as breakfast and lunch for those who don't care to cook. Triphailme is 3/4 of a mile from the village along the coast.
Brenda O'Sullivan, our house and reservations manager, is a wonderful resource for almost anything you could think of while staying at Triphailme. She can arrange airport pick up and drop off, drivers for evening activities, extra house cleaning, in-house catering and babysitters to mention a few. If you want to fish the local lake for gold medal salmon and trout with a guide, plan a unforgettable hiking trip, set up golf tee times or go horse back riding, Brenda will arrange it.
In addition to the world ranked Waterville Golf Links and Skellig Bay Golf Club, you have other spectacular golf courses to choose from. Dooks, Tralee, Killarney Fish and Game and Ballybunion are all an easy drive for day trips.

About James Hall
We have been coming to Waterville since 1994 and consider it coming home when we return. We enjoy the golf, the fishing, the hiking, the scenic drives and the wonderful food. The choices for either pub food or fine dining are plentiful and close by. All the meat and fish are raised and caught locally. One never tires of our ocean views. The people of Waterville are the friendliest people in the world.
James Hall purchased this House in 1999
Why James Hall chose Waterville
We initially came to Waterville for its top links golf course but now we enjoy the entire Irish experience when we return there. The lake and ocean fishing draws anglers from all over Europe. The spectacular irish landscape makes biking, hiking and strolling memorable. It is also an artist's dream come true.
What makes this House unique
The house is ideal for golf vacations. The rooms can comfortably accommodate 4 couples or 2 foursomes of golf buddies. Our home is also perfect for family reunions. The Smugglers Inn is a short stroll away and can accommodate your overflow. It is also open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The golf, views, hiking, restaurants and people are what visitors love the most when they come to Waterville.

Sports & Adventure Activities
The house was gorgeous, roomy and comfortable. Incredible views from every room in the house.
This was the trip of a lifetime for our familiy and staying at this home ensured that happened. So close to the water and the beautiful town of Waterville. Jim was incredibly helpful and Brenda met us there and stopped by several times to see what we needed. Excellent restaurants, pubs and golf courses within walking distance as well as shops and historical statues and points of interest. We had an amazing time and cannot wait to go back.
So happy you all had the holiday you were hoping for and I am glad your stay at Triphailme added to your overall good time. It is a magical village and I hope you can come back and visit us again. Your always welcome.
Great location, lovely house, full amenities, great staff.
Our group of 8 had a wonderful stay. The house was roomy and comfortable. It has all the amenities and exceeded our expectations in all respects, except fir wireless strength. Wifi needed to be reset twice a day. But this minor inconvenience did not detract from an overall excellent experience. We would definitely return to the house in the future.
Glad you enjoyed your stay at Triphailme. It is a special place and I am glad you were able to experience it. We will have the wifi working to satisfaction when you return.
A warm and inviting home.
The home is conveniently located with pubs, a grocery store and golf within walking distance. The meal we had at Smuggler's Inn was delicious. Brenda who manages the house is very helpful checking in to make sure we had everything we needed. We would definitely consider renting the home again.
Glad Triphailme met your expectations and we hope you come back to our lovely friendly Waterville again.
A Perfect Retreat in Southwest Ireland
This home is well situated for golf at Waterville, experiencing the town of Waterville, and exploring the beauties of Southwest Ireland. There's plenty of room for a large group, the house is well equipped, and Brenda -- who oversees the house -- is a wonderful resource. Highly recommended if you're looking for a relaxing place to park your group as opposed to moving town-to-town.
Glad it was enjoyed by your group and we hope you come back again. Thanks for choosing Triphailme
