A beautiful large four bedroomed house centrally located, large private garden.
Our large four bedroomed house lies just outside Kenmare town. To look outside at the surrounding countryside and mountains, it would seem as if we are tucked away in the beautiful countryside! It overlooks Kenmare Bay and the mountains and enjoys a quiet private countryside location, yet only a mile away is the main town with all the hustle and bustle you might require. It's quite unique. It offers so many different types of holiday. Our home is on it’s own 1 acre plot, in private landscaped gardens, in a prestigious area, tucked away from prying eyes. For younger children you have the added benefit of a private enclosed back garden, with a very large play centre and Zipline and a large trampoline. Our home offers a very comfortable home from home experience.
We found it very hard to choose which option best describes our location....In the Country, by the Sea, near the mountains, In a small town....they all apply! :)
All four bedrooms are quite large, no box room. Our bedroom is en suite, with a walk in wardrobe area One of the double bedrooms is downstairs and also has a running machine. The two kids bedrooms are quite large, one with a double bed and the other with a single bed. (lots of lego in both rooms!) There is a large family bathroom upstairs with a bath and shower. The Kitchen is quite large. We have all the modern facilities; coffee machine, dishwasher, washing machine & drier, cooker and oven, microwave, gas central heating, DVD and television, WIFI internet & computer. We also have a movie box with thousands of movies for you to enjoy. There's a Nintendo in the TV room also with games and an Arts & Crafts box in the Kitchen. Kids (soft) darts set also upstairs. Private parking for three or more cars. We trust two babysitters ourselves who would also be available, should you require it.
The town of Kenmare offers so much…There are three woods all within only a few miles away. There are beaches also, within either a five minute drive, or a thirty minute drive. Some of them are known as the most beautiful in Kerry! There are three five star Hotels with a Spa, within fifteen minutes. Ten minutes away in the car is a large water sports centre offering a menu of activities available each day, which offers great fun for all ages! Within a half hours drive is the large town of Killarney which offers a huge amount of choice. The shopping is fabulous and it offers the visitor quite a lot e.g. pony and cart rides up the mountains for example which is a very fun few hours. Killarney offers everything any large town can; cinema, restaurants, Hotels etc. Tralee, Castletownbere, Castlegregory, Caherciveen, Clonakility, Skibereen and Cork are all only an hour away. The Skellig Islands (setting for The Star Wars movies), Garnish Island, Sherkin island, Cape Clear and Baltimore are not much further. Kenmare is located on the Wild Atlantic Way and also the famous Ring of Kerry, and the Ring of Beara, which offer spectacular scenery along the way. It really is breathtaking. If it’s Ireland you wish to see, you could not wish for anything more, truly!
We have an angel care baby monitor in one of the kids rooms also.

We live on a small road, with a few detached individual lovely houses nearby, but not too near to spoil your privacy. Our road is within walking distance of the main town of Kenmare, one mile. Deer and rabbits are regular visitors in the morning. It is a private area, with really nice neighbours. The road adjacent to our house, near the road, is a favourite also with walkers exploring the area and the natural beauty surrounding us. We have mountain views and also our bedroom window overlooks Kenmare Bay. Sitting outside in our private back garden, the little river running at the end of the property (fenced off) echoes on the breeze. Best of all, the town is within reach, offering everything you might need. There is a huge amount to do in the vicinity. It's a tourism Mecca and on the Wild Atlantic Way.
There are a vast number of beaches within an hours drive, too numerous to mention. here in town within 5 minutes, there are three. Then up the road half an hour are some of the most beautiful in Kerry, Derrynane Beach and O'Carroll's Cove, both with lovely Restaurants adjacent. If you prefer to swim in a Pool, then Kenmare Bay Hotel and Leisure Centre is a five minute drive away, open to the public.

About Our Family
We are a family of four. Our children next Year, 2020 will be 9 and 10, a boy and a girl. My husband is a Project Manager and I am a stay at home Mum. (Hotel Management would have been my passion before children!) While on holidays, we enjoy home comforts and enjoy a mix of visiting places and being active, as well as relaxing and trying to recharge the batteries. :) There is truly so much to do around this area, near and far. I enjoy having that choice also from our holiday locations. We are a very creative family, with very active kids. They spend a lot of time in our acre garden, with trampoline, swing and slide set and zipline, while we enjoy a BBQ, the privacy and the view. I'll leave our home as clean and welcoming as we can. We will treat your home with every bit of respect and value it as we do our own. We would love if those who stay could appreciate this and return the favour.
Kenmare is a truly beautiful town. Fabulous restaurants for every budget, shops galore, activities for every age, really, everything you could want. There are so many options to choose from; golf, canoeing, shooting, horse riding, cookery, archery, water sports, playgrounds, swimming, tennis, organised activities e.g pottery & painting, dedicated cycle and jogging routes, so much! My husband runs four times a week (we have an excellent running machine inside and some fabulous running paths locally) and I swim three times a week in the pool a mile down the road. We have 5 bicycles in the shed, tennis rackets, a basketball hoop, trampoline, football, Zip line, arts and crafts box and a really big swing, slide set. I worked as a Hotel Manager for years and I love entertaining and hosting in my home. While we won't be here ourselves, we will provide any assistance we can. Whatever you need. That's a promise. We will treat your home with great care and respect.
