Killarney castle description

Lakeview House & Estate is a luxurious private mansion directly on the world famous Lakes of Killarney.

Steeped in history and character, this elegant home is an ideal holiday destination. Whether you choose to enjoy all the House and Estate has to offer or to explore the region's scenery, golf, fishing and other activities, you will be spoilt for choice.

The House boasts wonderfully spacious living areas, all with high ceilings and impressive plasterwork: a Dining Room seating up to 18, a Drawing Room with an open fire and a very atmospheric Library with a wood burning stove. A very comfortable kitchen/breakfast room has steps out to the garden and there is a studio/playroom which works as a less formal sitting area.

There are 4 principal bedrooms sleeping 8 guests and 2 additional rooms for a further 3 guests. All have really comfortable beds to ensure you relax completely.

You can find further information about the house and its facilities on our website: www.lakeviewkillarney.com



P1: Being on the Killarney National Park, the stunning views have been protected from development: from the house you can see across the lake and mountains for miles with no sign of human habitation other than Ross Castle, a restored ruin beautifully lit for your benefit at night.

The estate covers over 100 acres with many private walks. Boat trips and fishing can be arranged from your doorstep and the surrounding area has fabulous walking, climbing, cycling, horse riding, golf, fishing and entertainment facilities.

The house was built in 1869 for the family of the present owners, kinsmen of Daniel O'Connell ('the Liberator'). It replaced an earlier house they had occupied since 1820, prior to which the land was owned by the MacCarthy family, the last of which line is the owner's mother. Other than 30 years, the family's occupation of the site goes back about 1000 years.

                  Killarney and the surrounding County of Kerry is, rightly, considered to be the premier tourist area in Ireland because of its natural beauty and tourism infrastructure. Surrounding a protected National Park with stunning mountains and lakes, the area has something for everyone: world class golf courses, walking, cycling, fishing, climbing, sightseeing, local festivals and gourmet food. The magical coastline (part of the famous 'Ring of Kerry') is nearby with beautiful beaches and sea fishing easily accessible. Lakeview House and Estate is directly on the National Park and is ideally placed for enjoying all the wonders the 'Kingdom of Kerry' has to offer.

                  Golf: Killarney Golf & Fishing Club, the venue of the 2010 and 2011 Irish Opens, is about 5 minutes away and can be seen from the house. The club has 3 18 hole courses and the O'Mahony's Point Course is acknowledged as having one of the most stunning settings of any course - happily, it is the same view that guests in our house also enjoy.

                  Beaufort Golf Course is a friendly local club about 10 minutes away and the respected old established Dooks course about 20 minutes away.

                  Further afield, the world famous links courses of Waterville and Ballybunion are about 1hr from the house.
