About Carol Carty
We (Carol and Enda Carty) purchased newly-built Curlew Cottage in 2006 as a home-from-home for our young family; now, with our children older, we have decided to share our special hideaway with discerning guests who appreciate the country life and the wild beauty of North Kerry. As dog owners, we particularly appreciate the difficulty of finding high-quality accommodation that accepts pets, so we make a point of welcoming well-behaved dogs and their responsible owners. We love our second home and hope you'll fall in love with it and the surrounding area as much as we have.

Why Carol Carty chose Ardfert
What do we love about North Kerry? Where do we start!? We love the music, the pubs, the chat and the 'craic'. We love the fresh air and fresh food, the local markets and the craft fairs. We love it that we can hide away in the country but be in town in a matter of minutes. We love our 'secret' beach! Tucked away behind the nearby golf course - which you can see from the house - this mile-long sandy stretch is known only to locals and guests - on a crowded day you might find 25 people there. The water is clean, the beachcombing is good, and the view is stunning. We walk and swim there year-round - and if you have a dog be sure and bring a ball! We love the country life, and with the house surrounded by farmland and sea there is always something to watch or listen for. If you're lucky you might hear the curlews (now an endangered species) calling in the estuary. The sunsets you can view right from our dining area are, more often than not, absolutely spectacular, and on a clear night you'll have an almost limitless view of the night sky with the Milky Way painting a bold streak across the constellations. To help our guests enjoy the same special qualities of the area that we do, we have compiled a list of interesting and useful addresses, phone numbers, drives and activities, which you'll find in a notebook in the kitchen. But the best thing to do is what we always do - explore, and make your own magic in the Kingdom of Kerry.
What makes this Bungalow unique
- As dog owners we appreciate how hard it is to find a high- quality vacation home that is pet-friendly and secure, so we especially welcome responsible dog owners. And for those without dogs, rest assured that the house is cleaned to the highest standard after each group! - Our secure walled and gated garden is also superb for families with young children. - Tralee Golf Club and a beautiful beach are just a short walk from the house. - The sea, mountain and sky views from our house are spectacular!

Barrow is the perfect place for a holiday, especially is you are a golfer and want to play one of the world's best golf courses. The stunning beach where Ryan's daughter was filmed is only a 5 min walk away. Highly recommended!
Best Rental in Ireland
We have been here for 14 days and have stayed at 4 homes. This was our best stay. Thank you Carol!!!!
Great place to stay. Carol was really nice to deal with.
We had an excellent week at Curlew Cottage in July 2019. The views are excellent and the property very much as described if not better. We were lucky with the weather and able to get out and about especially to the beaches nearby. An excellent experience.
Bringing the kiddies? 2 playgrounds and 3 beaches within 15 minutes of the house. Other activities for all ages listed in our extensive personal guide to our home and the area which you'll find in the kitchen on arrival. KerryGems magazine, an essential guide to County Kerry, is supplied on arrival or can be accessed online. You will NEVER want for something to do!
We're on the Wild Atlantic Way, and the Ring of Kerry starts in the town of Killarney, not far from here.
