Killorglin cottage description

River Farm comprises two cottages for rental - ANNIES COTTAGE, sleeping 6 and one of the most popular holiday cottages in Kerry and RIVER COTTAGE, sleeping 4 - an original Kerry Farmhouse that has been lovingly renovated and updated over the last ten years. Both cottages are surrounded by fields and a small stream runs through the property. It is very safe for children as both cottages are approached via a small ‘dead end’ lane which runs up to the mountain behind the cottages. The owners fields are occupied by pet sheep and lambs (in season), together with donkeys and free range hens. Views of the sea are possible from the garden as well as from Annie’s Cottage. Inch Beach with it's four miles of white sand and dunes(and increasingly a surfing and paragliding mecca) is no more than 15 minutes drive, whilst the beauty of Killarney National Park and it's lakes are also within easy reach. A local grocery shop (8am to 10pm, daily) is only 10 mins. walk away. Dogs are welcome.


Proximity to the best Kerry attractions and sites: Annie's Cottage is ideally situated for Killarney National Park, and the Kerry Way, the Dingle Peninsula and Tralee.

A 30 minute drive will allow you to visit Muckross House, the famous Killarney Lakes, Angel Falls, Ross Castle, the old Copper mInes, the Gap of Dunloe and Kate Kearney's Cottage as well as walk throughout the beautiful meadows, mountains and woods of Killarney National Park.
From Killarney you can embark on the Kerry Way by foot or cycle or drive to the end of the Ring of Kerry (and back) visiting Killorglin, Glebeigh, Caherciveen, Valentia Island, Waterville, Caherdaniel, Sneem and Kenmare - a memorable journey indeed.
Similar excursions by car and foot can take place on the Dingle Peninsular discovering the wild scenery, breathtaking mountain passes and white sandy beaches. This peninsular also has the highest concentration of megalithic sites in Europe.
A catalogue of festivals - food, music, culture, film and horseracing - take place throughout the year

          Other Amenities

              • RIVER COTTAGE is at least 150 years old and is a classic 'Three room stone-built Kerry farmhouse'. It has been sympathetically renovated over the last ten years, retaining many of the features of the original cottage, including slate floors, lime wash walls, sash windows and the large open fireplace and wood burning stove in the main living room. The cottage has full oil-fired central heating and has a southerly aspect so is light , cosy and warm throughout the year. The spacious kitchen and dining area have been added on to the back of the cottage and were designed for our own family of nine. As such, they provide extensive entertaining, cooking and relaxation space for a small cottage and open out onto the wooden decking and barbeque area and pictoresque cottage garden at the rear. Views of Caherconree (Ireland's 4th highest mountain) and the Slieve Mish mountains are possible from both the kitchen and dining areas....moreless
