2 bedroom cottage in private hillside garden 5 miles (7.5 km) from Kenmare town

This 2 bedroom cottage is located just off the Ring of Kerry approx 10 min drive from the picturesque bustling town of Kenmare, famous for its award winning restaurants and pubs. The house is south facing and enjoys stunning views to the Caha Mountains and the Beara Peninsula. Nearby Coss Strand, Pat Spillane's Bar, the Ring O'Kerry Golf and Country Club, Templenoe Pier (for sea swimming and sailing) and the forest walks of Dromore Wood are all within 5 min driving distance. Local activity centres offer a wide range of water sports, including sailing and kayaking.

The property is an excellent base for exploring the Iveragh, Beara and Dingle Peninsulas and for day drives to Killarney National Park.

Guestbook comments from the owner

excellent emplacement pour cette maison de plein pied. A 7 km de Kenmare Maison parfaitement équipée (cuisine, 2 chambres - une avec grand lit ensuite et l'autre avec 2 petits lits, salle de bain familiale - excellente literie) maison parfaitement tenue, très propre petite cheminée avec foyer ouvert pour faire un feu de tourbe jardin joliment arboré excellent contact que ce soit par mail avec Monica ou sur place avec Margaret. Possibilité de s'arranger sur les dates d'arrivée et la durée du séjour pour 400 euros la semaine (compter une cinquante d'euros pour l'électricité, l'eau et le chauffage pour 3 adultes durant une semaine), le rapport qualité prix est imbattable/ J'y retournerai avec grand plaisir

Perfect house to discover Kerry County!

  • 5 of 5

Really nice house, perfect to discover the area. Everything's was really clean and well organized when we came (even if we arrived quite late in the evening).

The view on the Kenmare river is fantastic, and many paths around the place for those who like to hike.

We would come again without any doubt!

Thank you for everything!

Gros coup de coeur !

  • 5 of 5

Nous cherchions une villégiature dans ce coin d’Irlande, et avons découvert ce gîte où nous avons passé une semaine très agréable, au calme complet, dans en environnement verdoyant.

A proximité de Kenmare et toutes ses commodités (accès facile à 10 min en voiture), la maison est bien située pour découvrir le Kerry ; splendides randos à faire dans les environs, et pas mal de découvertes aux alentours dès qu’on sort des sentiers battus.

Le contact avec la propriétaire a été excellent, la location aisée et en toute confiance.

Le bungalow est confortable et vraiment bien équipé, très propre et spacieux (idéal pour une famille de 4), avec une très belle vue sur la baie et les montagnes de Beara. Une attention particulière de la propriétaire à mettre à disposition les produits de première nécessité qu’on n’a pas toujours envie d’acheter lors de courts séjours (aliments de base, condiments, lessive, etc).

Bien vite revenir à Templenoe Heights lors d'un prochain séjour dans le Kerry !

Charming Country Cottage

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay at Templenoe Heights. Thank you for the fine directions as it is quite hidden away, which insured great peace and tranquility. The house is immaculate with one of the best equipped kitchens we have encountered. The TV and wi-fi worked perfectly. Wh

Great location near Kenmare

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful newly remodeled home with modern appliances, Wi-Fi, and washer/dryer. Owner and property manager were both very efficient and reliable about keeping in touch with us and getting us the information we needed to get checked in and out. Margaret also gave us good Kenmare area restaurant recommendations. We had a great time and loved the location! We will definitely be back!

Wonderful house and garden, quite location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect: it is a quite place but close enough to the main road; so its ideal for relaxing at home and for going on trips. The house is lovely, very bright with everything you might need and even more. The place was spotless. The garden is beautiful. The sister of the owner welcomed us. She lives close by, just in case that help would be necessary.

We really enjoyed our time there.

Car: necessary

The house is an excellent base for exploring the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara. Day drives to Killarney National Park, Muckross House gardens and model farm, Gap of Dunloe, Healy Pass, Conor Pass, Glengarriff - Garnish Island, Bantry House, boat trips to Skellig Islands, Sneem, Derrynane, Dingle Peninsula etc. The Iveragh Peninsula is rich in archaeological heritage. Have a picnic - combine a visit to the great pre Christian ring fort at Staigue (not far from the beach at Castlecove) with a trip to the long sandy strand at historic Derrynane (birth place of Daniel O'Connell) towards the south western end of the Peninsula. Or do some nearby sightseeing in Kenmare town, where the Stone Circle is a hidden gem.
