  • Wonderful vacation

    "We totally enjoyed our stay and when returning to Dublin, Glen Court Apartments will be our choice lodging. Excellent location and within a short walk to grocery store and several great restaurants. Liam is an excellent host. He also arranged all of our ground transportation and his drivers were very friendly and always arrived on time. We would not hesitate to stay with Liam again."

  • Great house with lots of space and beautiful views!

    "We had a very memorable holiday in this very spaciousness bright home. We had ten family members so had plenty of room with 5 nice bedrooms. We had every facility we needed with a nice big kitchen, utility room and plenty of sitting areas. We had all travelled far but was certainly worth it to enjoy the beautiful village of Roundstone and surrounding areas. We enjoyed delicious food at Vaughans and O'Dowds and lots of fun at Kings pub. Made some new friends here who were so friendly and showed us some of the local sights. Will definitely be back and would highly recommend this house!"

  • Wonderful stay at Cottage Mary Rose

    "We just completed nearly three weeks vacation at Cottage Mary Rose, and for our family of four the cottage was absolutely perfect. We felt at home from the moment we arrived. Our children (ages 3 & 5) loved playing in the garden, while we enjoyed using the grill to savor local ingredients found at Kerry County farmers markets. The cottage maintains a perfect balance between rustic charm and the modern convenience we look for to keep a vacation relaxing. It is centrally located so that many of the attractions of County Kerry are close by. The owner and property caretakers were very helpful with any questions we had. I would highly recommend a visit to the cottage while visiting Ireland."

  • great place in the country

    "From the moment I inquired about the house, Alison could have not been more accommodating. Not only did she give me great ideas on places to see in the area, she also gave me ideas as we traveled to her house. Loved the parade of cows every morning and evening. Very remote and quiet. After a day of sightseeing, it was great to get back to the country!"

County Kerry Travel Tips

Kerry Vacation Rentals in the Emerald Isle of Ireland

County Kerry in the Emerald Isle of Ireland is a large county of mountains and lakes with a coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. It borders both County Limerick on the east and County Cork to the southeast. Choosing one of the Kerry cottages on offer here puts you in over 1,800 miles of stunning scenery with charming Irish towns and villages to explore. Residents often refer to it as the "kingdom."

It has two distinct terrains--the lush green mountains and the coastal peninsulas of Beara, Iveragh and Dingle. Its high rainfall and mild temperatures make it an exceptionally lush, green county with perfect growing conditions for subtropical plants like tree ferns and strawberry trees. It is an ancient county which traces its history back to the 12th century. Getting here, visitors choose to fly into Dublin and complete their journey either by train or hire a car. The main road through the area is N70.

A Kerry Accommodation in This Ancient County

There are delightful towns and villages to be discovered within easy distance of Kerry vacation rentals. The capital of County Kerry is Tralee which is home to the world-famous "Rose of Tralee" festival held every August. Here, the beautiful 18th-century port area attracts many visitors. Visitors will enjoy the scenery on the drive from Tralee to Brandon. Once you arrive at Brandon, visit the local art gallery to enjoy the scenery captured on canvas in a series of beautiful oil paintings. Killarney is an ideal place to enjoy the wonderful local shops. It is located within a short distance of the countryside, the mountains, large lakes studded with islands and woodland.

The area referred to as the "Ring of Kerry" is the Iveragh Peninsula. It is an excellent center for beaches with beautiful seaside villages. What really makes the area unique is the opportunity to explore the ancient Iron Age forts, monasteries and the famous Ogham Stones. These stones date from the 5th century and are carved with the long dead language of the original inhabitants.

Within the Ring of Kerry, visitors will find the area of Ross-Maine, a charming place to explore with towns such as Castlemaine, Glenbeigh, Killorglin, Milltown and Rossbeigh, each a delightful place to spend time.

Enjoy the Natural Beauty of Ireland

This area of unspoiled natural beauty is a delight for a variety of outdoor activities. Among the outdoor activities here are water sports on the lakes such as canoeing and kayaking. The adventurous may enjoy mountaineering, rock climbing and hiking. There are many opportunities to explore on horseback with mountain trails; you can also enjoy riding into the surf along one of the glorious beaches. It is also a hunting region and visitors may enjoy watching this traditional way of life as the brightly dressed riders, horses and hounds race over the country in pursuit of the elusive fox. Those who enjoy cycling can rent bicycles and either explore the trails or, with quiet roads, cycle from town to town. Golf enthusiasts will find the ideal course on offer from one of the 20 to choose from. And then there is the superb fishing. Fish the freshwater rivers for trout and salmon or head out to sea for bass, conger eel, cod, mullet, mackerel, ray, and tuna.

Kerry Cottages are Great Properties in a Great Location

With the variety of Kerry accommodations on offer, there is the perfect property for everyone. There are coastal properties, just steps from the beach, cozy farmhouses on the edge of the golf course, or 18th-century thatched cottages complete with hot tubs and wireless internet access. The choice is endless and each property is equipped with everything needed to make a great home away from home.
