Overview

Ireland House Rental Photos and Description

Luxurious modern family holiday home, 4 bed-3 en-suite, very private.

Nestled on an elevated site this idyllic detached house lies just 1.5 miles from the heart of Waterville with its shops, pubs and first class restaurants to choose from. Newly built, spacious, comfortable and furnished to a very high standard, it has been well designed to take advantage of the views of the amazing countryside and the wonderful Lough Currane which is world famous for its salmon and trout fishing. Waterville has two golf courses, one within a mile, the other a world ranked championship golf course approximately two miles. There is a beach and walkway stretching along the front of the village. Sandy beaches, national park and historic house at Derrynane are about 15mins drive.

Sheltered patio area, garden furniture ample parking spaces, sitting room with large tv, sky plus+, dvd, welcoming open fire for those cosy nights in. Kitchen cum dining room with double oven, fridge, freezer, dish washer,microwave, washing machine, tumble drier and central hover system.

Hillwalking: This is a good area for walkers as there are 2 sections of the Kerry Way walking route or for the more energetic, the majestic mountains in the surrounding area.

Waterville: Waterville is situated in the heart of Ireland's most spectacular beautiful area, The Ring of Kerry.

It is famous for its world ranked golf course, its trout and salmon angling and its golden sandy beaches. Waterville lies on a narrow strip of land between the Athlantic and Lough Currane. Waterville and its surrounding area offers a number of breathtaking walks and places to see. The most scenic of these walks is the Coomakista Pass.

Waterville village has many fine restaurants, pubs, shops, craft stores, post office, garage, internet cafés and coffee shops. The village has attracted many famous celebrities over the years, Charlie Chaplin, Tiger Woods, Payne Stewart, Mark O'Meara.......to name but a few.

There are the most astounding views from this elevated site and sitting out will be a real pleasure. Quiet and in a peaceful, relaxed area, there is the added bonus of travelling and touring just a mile down the road, where you can go into Waterville for water activities, including sea fishing, sailing, swimming and safe beaches. Golfing and a lovely selection of pubs and restaurants are awaiting in the town that is famous for its links with Charlie Chaplin.

There is something for everyone: the craft market, the heritage site of the Skellig Islands and the main Ring of Kerry route leading to Killarney, and the idyllic scenery. This is a base for a holiday of memories and one where one visit will not be enough.

Water ville Golf Links is ranked in the Worlds top 20 and Ireland top 5 Links courses. Links Land is a rarity and less than one percent of courses in both Ireland and the British Isles are championship Links. Water ville is one of these blessed places hence it regularly attracts the Worlds top golfers who test their mettle here. Golf at Water ville is a mystical experience - the beauty of classic links land, surrounded by the sea, yet forever changed and by the elements. At over 100 years old it is ranked as one of the top 5 courses in Ireland and the top 20 Links courses in the World. Links Golf combines sand dunes gorse and native grasses, firm fairways, sod faced bunkers and subtle putting surfaces all intertwined by the ever changing weather. Forget the lob wedge. Think bump and run creative shot making. Are you ready to are walk in the footsteps of the earliest golfers. http://www.watervillegolfclub.ie/

Skellig Bay Golf Course

Overlooking the magistic Ballinskelligs Bay and set among natural megalithic stonework and indigenous Bog Deal, there can be few places more visually stunning locations for a golf course than Skellig Bay Water ville,.

Here the awesome beauty of the Bay hits you as you play through holes framed by over 8000 yards of ancient 'famine' walls.'Skellig Bay is full of challenging golf holes', says the the Sunday Independent Golf correspondent Dermot Gillee

Our Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

There are no words to describe the overwhelming beauty you wake up too each morning when looking out the window of this home. It was a disappointing moment when my family knew next day we would have to travel back home to Georgia. We had not a single criticism other than it is a little difficult to find the home when arriving for the 1st time. The home has all the benefits of modern living, but delivers on the Irish experience. If we could return each year, there would be no reason to consider other properties. If there were 6 Stars, we'd give it 6 Stars. As I type this review all I can think about is how we return....quickly!

Fantastic House with everything you will need

  • 5 of 5

This house is fantastic and the views overlooking the lake from the front of the house are amazing , the photos on the internet do not do it justice. We were a party of 7 and the house was huge more than adequate for all of us. The kitchen is well equipped and has everything you need to allow you to cook in. The location is great and we were able to explore the area easily. We had a great time and would highly recommend the property. Hopefully we will be back in the near future.

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2Erwachsene und 2 Jugendliche)kamen nun ein zweites Mal in dieses wirklich wunderschöne Ferienhaus und genossen erneut einen traumhaften Urlaub!

Das Haus ist auf höchstem Niveau ausgestattet und absolut gepflegt und sauber.

Es steht in einer sehr ruhigen Lage und hat eine wunderschöne Aussicht auf den See....-die Sonnenuntergänge sind ein Traum!

Die Vermieterin Kathleen begrüßte uns wie alte Freunde und war immer total hilfsbereit.

Ein Urlaub, der keine Wünsche offen lässt...

wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder :-) Danke für alles!

Perfect in all ways

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen gave us a very warm welcome to her lovely house, and had also made us a tasty freshly cooked tea cake. We had stunning views especially at sunset. Very well presented and immaculate throughout. The layout of the house was perfect for our family of 4 adults & 4 chidlren. There was plenty of room for the children to play away from the adults while preparing meals etc in the well equipped and spacious kitchen. Tried our hand at cooking local seafoods and when washed down with an Irish beer who could want more! Location close to everything you might need and ideal for a self drive holiday

We enjoyed fabulous weather touring the Ring of Kerry sights and highly recommend this property.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic property in an excellent location. The house is relatively new and of a very high spec. Spacious and very well equipped with stunning views over Lough Currane. Kathleen and her husband are a pleasure to deal with and very welcoming.

The nearby area is stunning with long sandy beaches and fantastic scenery with all that the Ring of Kerry has to offer.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

Barraide is perched on the edge of the Lough Currane and surrounded by Ireland’s highest mountain range. It is the ideal location to explore the 'Ring of Kerry' and has the widest and most varied range of outdoor activities one could wish for.

Alternately, just relax in the luxury of our home and enjoy the spectacular scenary and array of wildlife.

For the foodies there is a wide range of eateries on tap including some of the finest Seafood restaurants and/or enjoy the Guiness and the atmosphere in one of several traditional Irish pubs.

The SouthWest of Ireland is home to some of the world's most renowned and prestigious golf courses - Waterville, Dooks, Ballybunion, Tralee and Killarney are amongst the top courses in the world and are all within easy reach. The new 'Skellig Bay' links course is a rising star and is just 1 km from the house.As the name implies we are surrounded by water hence the area is also renowned for its diverse range of water based activities.
