Overview

Kerry Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Holiday Home on a headland with stunning sea and mountain views

Rent a cottage and make the most of your time off. We have lovely cottages to rent on a remote headland in southwest of Ireland. Brandon is located on the northern side of the dingle peninsula in Co. Kerry. The holiday homes are located at Brandon point in a peaceful, unspoilt area with spectacular view of Brandon bay and surrounding mountains. The Stone Farmhouse and the Stone Cottage each has its own site with a style of their own rather than the monotonous same colour and layout type constructions that you find in some holiday villages The cottage has unobstructed mountain and sea views from every window. Brandon has been described as the Land of extremes, extreme isolation at Europe's periphery, extreme beauty of land, water and sky.

Brandon Point has been designated a discovery point on the Wild Atlantic Way. The Cloghane Brandon Area is a Gaeltacht area meaning it is one of the few regions in Ireland where Gaelic is still used daily. We are very proud of our culture and have a fantastic nights entertainment weekly to keep our traditions alive. The Tinteán Ceoil ( music by the fire side) is on in Cloghane Village 4 miles away.

Our house is the 2nd House in Cloghane Village with a Brandon Bay Cottages Sign.

From Cloghane continue to Brandon Point - cottage last house on left.

The Great Outdoors: Brandon is a wonderful place to spend your holidays. Brandon - Cloghane is situated on the northern side of the dingle peninsula, tucked at the base of Mount Brandon and washed by the sparkling surf of Brandon Bay, the Cloghane Brandon region is surely one of the great beauty spots of the world. Here an exhilarating blend of mountain, sea and sky entice the visitor to linger, often longer than planned.

A fine selection of way marked trails through the Cloghane-Brandon hills have made the area a favourite destination for hill walkers. Walks range from short shoreline strolls to the high level Brandon Ridge Walk. The local walking guide book and No. 70 O.S Map are the ideal companions for all who wish to experience our special blend of hills, valleys and Atlantic coastline.

In Cloghane-Brandon, there is a choice between shore angling at Cappa and Fermoyle strands or casting for trout and salmon in the Owenmore River Valley below the Conor Pass.

In Cloghane-Brandon, the close proximity of mountains, sea and moorland makes for an interesting mix of wild flowers, ranging from seaside plants like sea pink to Alpine saxifrages. In between are the beathland, meadow and roadside plants. In summer scarlet fuchsia, purple foxglove, yellow and orange\red combine with other flowers such as the deep violet, great butter wort, bright yellow asphodel and heath spotted orchid of the Bogland to provide a memorable blaze of colour.

The tidal estuary of Cloghane Creek is a favourite haunt of curlews, oyster catchers, herons and many other waders. Cormorants, razor bills and guillemots find it a rich fishing ground. Fulmars nest at Brandon point, off which majestic gannets wheel and plummet in their spectacular quest for food. Another impressive aerial performer, the red-billed may also be observed at Brandon Point, soaring in the distraught, or feeding on the close-cropped hillside.

The Stone Farmhouse and the Stone cottage are both lovely properties in a magnificent location. Both have open plan living /dining room with an open fire. There are sea and mountain views from every window. It is located on a headland and the road ends just a few hundred yards from the farmhouse. We are off the beaten track yet have been included in the Wild Athlantic Way. Brandon Point is a discovery point.

Stone cottage was nothing short of incredible

  • 5 of 5

The stone farmhouse was already booked for our visit, so Maura, the owner, suggested her Stone Cottage at the very end of Brandon Point. It was just the two of us and it sounded quaint and the photos were lovely. It exceeded our expectations on every level. The very last dwelling on the tip of Brandon Point with spectacular views of the Bay and the sunrises over the Maharee Islands. Hiking right outside the door through sheep pastures overlooking the Atlantic. Very convenient location for trips over Connor Pass to Dingle and the Slea Head Drive. O'Donnells Pub in Clochán so close for delicious food and a warm inviting atmosphere. Cottage was cozy secluded and just what we were looking for. Maura and her husband Seamus were so kind and helpful. We wish we could have stayed longer. Very highly recommend!

Incredible location!

  • 5 of 5

The views from this location are really some of the best in Ireland. Of all the sights we saw, and all the cliff side views, the view from the front yard was our favorite of all. We stayed for five nights with our toddler. The farmhouse has ample room for a large party of guests. Everything you might need for day to day living is provided. We were able to cook many meals at home because of the array of utensils and bakeware provided. We caught a cold part was through the trip and ended up finishing our last few days just sitting on the front yard and enjoying the view while our toddler played and we sipped on hot tea. It was the trip of a lifetime, and we were pleased as punch with the accommodation. The owner was sweet and accommodating, the price was right, the location incredible. My heart yearns to make another visit and stay in this exact location. We went in November, and the weather was lovely, a little chilly, and rainy. Truly a great rental. One thing to note is how many new movies are provided for you to watch! We were surprised by the trendy and modern options and watched a movie every night after our toddler went to bed!

Incredible location, rental perfection!

  • 5 of 5

I don't even know where to start when describing this property. The exterior is nothing short of exquisite, so gorgeous. The interior is perfectly cozy and warm, with everything you need to be comfortable. I couldn't believe the value! We spent a lot of time at the rental because our toddler has an early bedtime. We saved so much money by cooking breakfast and dinner at the rental, and all the necessities of cookware are there, for certain.

We spent a week in Ireland and the most gorgeous view, I truly believe, was from the front yard of this property, or a 3 minute walk to brandon point, or a 5 minute drive to Brandon beach.

We would stay here again in a heartbeat! The owner was very kind and absolutely lovely in providing everything we needed to stay for a toddler.

What a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for some time away from "it all" and we could not have been more pleased with our time at this home. It was just perfect for us and we hope to return some day.

Beautiful site and cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We so loved staying at this lovely home.

The views were even more spectacular than you can imagine; you awaken each day to the glorious sparkling waters of Brandon Bay.

The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped and homey.

The only thing that could have improved our experience would have been a longer stay; we'll be back!
