Property description

OUR RENOVATED STONE FARMHOUSE, near the Ring of Kerry, offers breathtaking views from a newly constructed year-round glass conservatory in a quiet, private spot close to beaches, golf and mountains.

{FOR MORE PHOTOS OF OUR HOME AND THE AREA, PLEASE VISIT: http://bit.ly/WbmICk }

A short hike up the hill behind our home is rewarded with a panorama you'll never forget -- the westernmost land in Europe, the Skellig Islands; Ballinskelligs Bay, with the shimmering colors and lights of Waterville at its throat, and MacGillicuddy's Reeks, with Ireland's tallest peak.

ENJOY restaurants and pubs with traditional entertainment in Caherciveen, Portmagee, Valentia, Waterville and Ballinskelligs; the world-class Waterville Golf Links, blue flag beaches, magnificent walks, fresh and saltwater fishing, horseback riding, surfing, diving and wind surfing.

ALSO CLOSE BY are pre-Christian sites; boat trips to the monastic settlement on Skellig Michael; Derrynane House, the ancestral home of Daniel O'Connell, Ireland's 'Liberator;' and the Cill Rialaig pre-famine village and artist colony.

***The Iveragh Penninsula where our house is located was recently given the highest ranking (Gold Tier) as an International Dark Sky Reserve by the Dark Sky Association, in recognition of the exceptional quality of its night sky. Important to astronomers and amateur sky-gazers alike, this is the only spot so designated in Ireland and one of only three in the world!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: We are New Jersey natives with Irish, Scottish and English roots. Peter is a freelance writer and photographer and Daphne just completed a master's degree in Irish Studies at New York University. We have two grown children, Patrick and Casey.

Why Ballinskelligs:
We first saw this house in 1998 on a visit to Ireland and were overwhelmed by the spectacular view. It belonged to a cousin of Peter's mother and when he passed away we purchased it and renovated it with lots of help from other cousins living nearby.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Besides the proximity of one of the best golf courses in Ireland, Waterville Links, we enjoy the beach in Ballinskelligs, hikes around the countryside and the quiet, peaceful beauty on all sides.
