Ireland Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

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. Other local amenities include forest walks, hill walking, horse riding and pony trekking, trout / salmon and deep sea fishing.

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

The owner is a wheelchair user, so the property has been adapted to be ideal for persons of reduced mobility. Pets welcome by arrangement, but must be kept out of bedroom area. Sleeps 4/5.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Monica,

We just want you to know that we had a fantastic time in Ireland and not in the last place in your beautiful house!!

So comfortable and quiet. We drove about 1200 km and each day we had the feeling of coming home!

Thank you and Margaret for all!

I tried to make review but I.m not sure if it worked because I had to make an account. It knew the email address but that’s all. Can you copy my mail in Home away?

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.

Relaxing Times

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Kenmare especially as the house and garden were great, with fantastic sea views over Kenmare Bay, and the mountains of the Beara Peninsula. We love to go out walking and there were lots of great places to explore, at the end of which were the pubs and restaurants of the surrounding countryside and Kenmare village. While the weather was grand, when it rained the house was the place to to be! It was well equipped and had everything a home bird would want especially the open fireplace which demanded a bottle and a book. Will be back!

Cottage with wonderful views over Kenmare Bay

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed with friends in Templenoe Heights in both summer and winter over the past few years. In the summer I enjoy the patio and extensive garden with great views over Kenmare Bay, while in the winter the house is cosy and warm and the view across the bay from the living room changes all the time. The property is on an elevated site about half a mile from the main road, on the Ring of Kerry. The garden is well kept and surrounded by trees. There is parking for at least four cars. The kitchen has everything you could want, and the bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and well furnished. The house is always impeccably clean. On a showery day you can curl up before the turf fire and watch the weather outside. There are lovely walks nearby, particularly the stretch of the Kerry Way that runs through Dromore Wood (five minutes drive from the house). We have had great holidays here, exploring the south west. The people of Kenmare, particularly the keyholders who look after the property, are always friendly and welcoming. I hope other people enjoy staying here as much as we do.

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.
