Welcome to one of the most idyllic places in Ireland: Kenmare.

From its origins in 1678 the town of Kenmare, Co Kerry, was special. Nestled peacefully at the mouth of the Kenmare Bay between the famous coastal drives of the Ring of Kerry and Ring of Beara, Kenmare is one of Ireland's Heritage Towns. A visit to Kenmare leaves lasting memories with its colourful shop fronts, unrivalled range of restaurants and stunning scenery.

Golf: Kenmare Golf Club is located just behind the house:

The famous old course is a fair test of golf and is unique in that it suits all standards of golfers.

It is fair to say that the course is the jewel in the crown of the late great Mr. Eddie Hackett, one of the games premier golf course architects.

Kenmare golf course boasts some of the finest scenery imaginable. The views over Kenmare bay and the surrounding mountains take one's breath away.

The course has some great feature holes and is always in first class condition which are all the ingredients for a wonderful round of golf.
