About Jane Urquhart

I enjoy meeting my guests from all over the world. I am passionate about nature and am so lucky to live in such a beautiful unspoilt part of the world.

I run my small bakery and tea garden at my farmhouse home and on Thursday lunchtimes we have live music in the garden for our customers. I have taught myself to play the piano accordion but really feel more comfortable playing the piano!

During the winter months I enjoy hill walking and overseas travel adventures.

Jane Urquhart purchased this apartment in 1997

Nice country retreat

  • 5 of 5

It is a lovely place with a nice atmosphere. The apartment was clean and has everything one needs for a self catering experience. Moreover, the fact that there is a bakery downstairs makes it even better. The soda bread, the croissants and the apple pie were wonderful.

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Ireland for our 30th wedding anniversary. We loved our stay at Jane's! The upstairs apartment had everything we needed, beautifully decorated, a cute and charming style. We woke up to amazing views from every window, the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. When we arrived there was fresh bread and marmalade waiting for us and in the morning hot homemade croissants! We would definitely recommend Jane's for a peaceful stop in the countryside. Thank you for an delightful stay!

Cozy, Delightful, Charming. A. Very Special Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here 8-12 April. We loved everything about the place: the views of the boats in the harbor, the private garden area, the window reading nook, Mac the 30-year-old horse, Betsy the 40-year-old goose. The delightful hostess, Jane, looked after us with the kind of care it takes to keep those animals going for so long! An afternoon of guitar, bouzouki, accordion and singing in the courtyard while sipping hot chocolate and munching delicious baked goods and visiting with other guests who dropped by (followed that evening by yet more cameraderie and entertainment around a fireplace in a nearby pub). Our stay was truly enjoyable and unforgettable! We're back in the US, but still basking in the glow. It was such a great time! Thanks, Jane!! Thanks, Pat!!

Our Honeymoon was Magical

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to a warm wlecome from Jane and a cosy apartment with amazing views from every window. The weather was glorious and on our first evening we sat out in our little scented garden,lit with fairy lights and stars and enjoyed an al fresco dinner and champagne. We hadnt realized just how stunning the surrounding scenery is and enjoyed the beaches and mountain hikes. We steadily worked our way through all Janes baking - delicious brown bread, chocolate cake and almond croissants to die for! We loved our week and hope to go back. Thank you Jane

mein neuer Lieblingsplatz

  • 5 of 5

wer Stille sucht, ein verschlupftes Nest, eine liebevolle Gaestgeberin, die zwar immer da ist, aber nie zu nah, wer mitten in der schönsten Natur sein möchte, leckere Croissants mag und ein altes Pferd, der ist hier richtig.

wir wohnten unterm Regenbogen.

Sensationell romantisch und herzlich!

  • 5 of 5

Der Aufenthalt in Westcove übertraf all unsere Vorstellungen. Eine wunderschöne romantische Oase. Das Appartement mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Die Leckereien von Jane sind jede Sünde wert 👍

Und überhaupt ist Jane sehr herzlich und immer hilfsbereit. Von Westcove kann man herrliche Wandertouren unternehmen. Sobald es möglich ist kommen wir wieder.

Vielen Dank für den unvergesslichen Urlaub in Irland.

With its lovely location on the Ring of Kerry overlooking the sea, Westcove Farmhouse is a unique “get away from it all” hideaway for two.

Situated between Caherdaniel and Castlecove, the tranquil setting offers guests the perfect place to relax or from which to explore this most beautiful and interesting part of Ireland. For walkers, the Kerry Way and magnificent beaches are minutes away. Those interested in fishing are spoilt for choice with both freshwater lake and sea fishing available. An excellent water sports centre is located in Derrynane 10 minutes away and for those who fancy a hack on the beach there is an equestrian centre in Caherdaniel. Excellent golf courses are nearby in either direction. Nature lovers will delight in the abundant bird life at Westcove, the colony of seals in the harbour, nature walks in Derrynane. Day excursions can be made to Killarney National Park, the scenic Ring of Kerry, the Skellig Islands, Valentia Island, the Iveragh and Dingle Peninsulas.
