Year Purchased: 2005

About: Born in North Kerry, and travelled here regularly to fish, walk, mountain climb and swim as a child. Now with children I want them to experience the outdoor life of my native county, and experience one of the few remaining great fishing and hunting lodges of a past era, although with modern conveniences.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
For the visitor who wants a relaxing , stress free, quiet, beautiful calm place, overlooking water and the lake, a few minutes drive to the wild Atlantic Ocean, close to Killarney National Park.
