Why the Owner Chose Killarney: We choose this holiday home primarily because of its location and generous size,within the Kerry region. There are lots of beautiful areas in Ireland but Killarney and Kerry have beauty in abundance and the town of Killarney is very pretty indeed..We have been visiting Killarney for over 20 years and really like this majestic region which has spectaular scenery and world renowned beauty. It was easy to decide on this home due to its great location directly across from the lovely Lakes of Killarney and the magnificent Killarney National Park & Muckross House which are all within walking distance.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We fell in love with this home because it was spacious enough for all our family, was in a fabulous location and was also fortunate enough to have a bar and restaurant practically on site just next door. The leisure facilities up the road 500 yds away also attracted us because it meant the children and adults alike had access to a pool and we really liked the fact we could walk out the door across to the National Park for cycling and walking. Being less than five minutes to a lovely vibrant town means we enjoy Mountain & lakeside location with plenty entertainment and restaurants within five minutes.Also we felt when it rains in Ireland as it does tend to do, you have to be near activities to keep both children and adults entertained which we can do from our base in Killarney so easily. We find families enjoy our home because we have equipped it with all the conveniences you would need at home such as Upgraded hi-speed Wifi and Satellite television and a phone service not always available elsewhere. As we use our holiday home ourselves and are not absentee homeowners ,nor we do not employ anyone to manage our home for us, we do take extra care & interest in our holiday rental. We like comfort when travelling so we have tried to ensure everything you will need is readily available for your self catering holiday in our home by the Beautiful Lakes of Killarney.
