Welcome, come and stay in my beautiful home just built in 2011. Sit on the patio or at the many window seats and enjoy the panoramic views of Tralee Bay,The Maharees, Ballyheigue, Fenit and the night lights of Tralee! Smell the ocean air and enjoy the seaside location of this one of a kind designer home.
This is a large luxury dormer residence built in 2011 to the highest standards. The property enjoys an elevated position high over Tralee Bay offering spectacular, unobstructed 180° vistas over the surrounding countryside and the Bay. On a total square footage of approximately 4,000 sq ft, the house comprises a beautiful large entrance hall, a fully fitted kitchen, dining and living room with vaulted ceilings. Four bedrooms two en-suite and 2 sharing a bathroom. (Stand alone shower, sink and toilet)
One enters the house into an impressively large entrance hall with stunning views of Tralee Bay . The breath taking kitchen, dining and living room offer dramatic views from every angle across Tralee Bay and The Maharees and Brandon Mountain.
The master-bedroom (king bed and on the ground floor) comes with its own bathroom en-suite (2 sinks, a stand alone shower, bath and toilet) and walk-in wardrobe.
There are three additional bedrooms, (upstairs) one with an en-suite bathroom(queen bed, stand alone shower, sink and toilet). The other 2 bedrooms (one has a double bed and the other 2 single beds) share a bathroom which has a stand alone shower, sink and toilet.
Further, the house has a comprehensive utility/laundry room with granite worktops. There are 2 powder rooms downstairs (sink and toilet) with built in coat storage attached.
The property is located on the Dingle Peninsula in the South West of Ireland, 10 miles west of Tralee and 20 miles east of Dingle. For those of you who golf this is a perfect location for both Killarney and Ballybunnion golf courses (PGA) - both are approx 30 miles drive. Old Head of Kinsale (PGA) is approx 2 hours drive. Tralee golf course - 14miles.
For those who would like less golf action there are multiple beautiful beach walks minutes away, hill side walking and for the brave of heart Mount Brandon (3,000 feet) the 2nd highest mountain in Ireland. Local horse riding is always a treat.
For those rainy days Tralee offers bowling, movie theaters, Aquadome (water activity - swimming pool and water slides) and Irish cultural shows at Siamsa Tire.
Pick up some local vegetables and fish from the local farmers and Fishermen and cook yourself an amazing meal in this custom built fully equipped kitchen. Should you want to dine out there are local restaurants and pubs within walking distance or drive to Castlegregory, Tralee or Dingle and eat the catch of the day!
These are only a few suggestions for your Irish holiday, my family live nearby and will be glad to answer any questions you may have.
County Kerry (otherwise known as the Kingdom!) is situated in the south west of Ireland, with 3 peninsulas that stretch out into the Atlantic Ocean. It has one of the largest mountain ranges in Ireland with lakes and streams and mile after mile of sandy beach. There is a huge amount to do in Kerry - The Lakes of Killarney, The Geraldine Center, Muckross House.
Many Americans claim their ancestors to be from Kerry as emigration from this area has historically been high. Cead Mile Failte, and welcome home!

Stunning house, stunning views
Extraordinary house. The kitchen and bathrooms are stocked with lovely extras which ease the stress of international travel. There is a lovely view from every window! Especially on a clear night, there are thousands of stars! The location is a great jumping off point to visit Tralee, Dingle, and Killarney. Mel was amazing to work with and easy to reach with any questions. Highly recommend.
This is a superb home in every respect, quality and location are both great.
I will certainly return and have no hesitation in recommending this property to others. And, the carr and attention from the owner is first class.
We absolutely loved our stay here. Our family of seven adults recently traveled to Ireland and were able to stay at this amazing home. It is beautifully appointed and so comfortable. Every detail of this home is absolutely amazing. We loved Ashes Pub which is in walking distance and Dingle is close as well. The views are truly beautiful.....postcard setting! I would highly recommend a stay here.
The MOST beautiful house! All 6 of us were in awe as we walked through house. So beautifully decorated, very cozy and comfortable. Lots of "extras" in the house - loads of towels, little samples of shampoos and lotion if needed, hairdryer in all the bathrooms. Not to mention the gorgeous views from every room! The kitchen was very stocked with anything you might need. Beds very comfy as I didn't want to get up in the morning. Different windows than what we have in the states - I could see the stars as I lay in bed. Donna was very helpful and friendly. Always there if we needed her. I highly recommend this amazing house if visiting the Dingle, Ring of Kerry area. Thank you Mel.
AMAZING Irish vacation spot- A.F, New York
This home away from home is an incredible place to have a beyond comfortable, relaxing and authentic irish vacation. The house is absolutely gorgeous with incredible views of the bay and countryside of Camp. There is a large, open living area with kitchen/dining room that is perfect for a group of people or family to relax and enjoy eating/drinking, enjoying each others company and gazing at the views of the green countryside and bay. The house is located in the village of Camp where you get an authentic Irish village experience. The local pubs are a short 3 minute walk from the house and the rustic beauty of the beach a 10 minute walk away. This location is perfect for those who are wanting to just relax locally (you could stay in the house all day drinking tea and enjoying the view) or someone who is looking for a jumping off point to explore the peninsula- you could drive the loop of the peninsula in a short day or spend weeks getting to know the many villages... The beach offers a quiet, beautiful place to go for long walks and there are hiking opportunities within walking distance if hills and higher peaks is what you're into...either way, nature in all it's forms is just outside the door and the Irish countryside with its village life is here also, you can't go wrong staying at this peaceful retreat in Camp! We had a truly unforgettable trip- highly recommended to anyone
a truly authentic Irish village experience in 5-star comfort
If you are looking to meet locals and get a sense for what it's really like to live in Ireland then this is the house for you. You can read from the other reviews that the pictures don't do the house justice and that's 100% true - every detail is thought out perfectly and you are treated to a 5-star lodging experience. But the best part for us was the proximity to the center of Camp and being able to immerse ourselves in life in a rural Irish village.
One of the best things about traveling to Ireland is getting to interact with its people - to say that they are incredibly warm and welcoming is an understatement. I've been to Ireland several times and always look to stay somewhere were I can have a true local experience -- don't get me wrong, I love Dingle, Killarney, Galway, etc. but many times when I'm in those towns I hear more American accents than Irish ones. To be able to stay close enough to those places to easily visit but to have completely authentic interactions with the locals is priceless. This house gives you all of that AND truly luxurious accommodations - a combination I have yet to find anywhere else in County Kerry.
By the time we left we were treated like family at Ashe's Pub and the Railway Tavern, were invited to attend a pre-Christmas "thank you" dinner for locals at another rural pub, walked the beach below the house and climbed the mountain behind it (with completely inadequate footwear). We even got to experience the outpouring of support from Camp village for a friend who had lost a loved one...there really is not anything quite like a rural Irish funeral.
So if you’re looking for more than a typical Irish vacation, stay in this house. There is absolutely nothing average about the house itself or the experience you will have in Camp. I'm already planning my return visit!
This property is less than 30 miles from 2 PGA golf courses - Ballybunnion and Killarney. Tralee Golf course is 15 miles away. 20 miles from Kerry (KER) airport should you need to fly to Dublin or London.
