Waterville house description

Our home ('Triphailme') is a 3,000 sq ft. private home located on the Irish coast in southwest Kerry. It sits 500 yards from Waterville Golf Links ranked in the top 5 of Ireland's best Golf courses and 54th in the top 100 of the world. The house has an 180 degree unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. The house, built in 1999, enjoys 2 living rooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, both with the ocean view.

The downstairs living room has a gas fireplace, perfect for returning from a day on the links. The house has 5 bedrooms en-suite; in addition there is a 6th bathroom in the center hall. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views.

The kitchen is very spacious with an eating area attached. A washer and dryer are located in the back pantry off the kitchen that also includes a large hot press. There is also a game room off the kitchen which has a real fireplace.

The Smugglers Inn, a 4 star Inn, is located half way between Triphailme and the golf course. The Smugglers offers fine dining at night as well as breakfast and lunch for those who don't care to cook. Triphailme is 3/4 of a mile from the village along the coast.

Brenda O'Sullivan, our house and reservations manager, is a wonderful resource for almost anything you could think of while staying at Triphailme. She can arrange airport pick up and drop off, drivers for evening activities, extra house cleaning, in-house catering and babysitters to mention a few. If you want to fish the local lake for gold medal salmon and trout with a guide, plan a unforgettable hiking trip, set up golf tee times or go horse back riding, Brenda will arrange it.

In addition to the world ranked Waterville Golf Links and Skellig Bay Golf Club, you have other spectacular golf courses to choose from. Dooks, Tralee, Killarney Fish and Game and Ballybunion are all an easy drive for day trips.

Touring scenic Valentia Island, lunching in the charming fishing village of Portmagee, or shopping at the world famous Chocolate Factory in Ballinskelligs is short half a day trip.

You can drive the historic and beautiful Ring of Kerry and lunch and shop in Kenmare and or Killarney.

                      About the owner: We have been coming to Waterville since 1994 and consider it coming home when we return. We enjoy the golf, the fishing, the hiking, the scenic drives and the wonderful food. The choices for either pub food or fine dining are plentiful and close by. All the meat and fish are raised and caught locally. One never tires of our ocean views. The people of Waterville are the friendliest people in the world.

                      Why the Owner Chose Waterville:
                      We initially came to Waterville for its top links golf course but now we enjoy the entire Irish experience when we return there. The lake and ocean fishing draws anglers from all over Europe. The spectacular irish landscape makes biking, hiking and strolling memorable. It is also an artist's dream come true.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The house is ideal for golf vacations. The rooms can comfortably accommodate 4 couples or 2 foursomes of golf buddies. Our home is also perfect for family reunions.
