Property description

Our recently renovated Irish farmhouse exudes a feeling of space and easy living. Thoughtful touches and soft muted tones mixed with the natural elements of wood, slate and stone and contemporary touches of glass and chrome combine with modern conveniences to create a relaxing and comfortable home-from-home.

The Bedrooms

There are three beautiful en-suite bedrooms that will accommodate 6 people in luxury. We can also sleep two additional guests on comfortable fold away z-beds as well as provide a cot for any of our littler guests.

The two ground floor bedrooms both have zip link beds that can turn from super-king size beds to twin beds. This flexibility means that whether you are a family or a group of friends the accommodation can be arranged to suit your needs. Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

Outside of July and August either one or two of the bedroom suites can be closed off to provide the perfect sized accommodation for 2 or 4 people. Again please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.

The bedrooms all have fantastic views and are beautifully appointed with comfy beds and soft cotton bedding. The en-suites all have baths and powerful showers, fluffy bathrobes and are stocked with luxury toiletries.

The entire ground floor of the house is gently warmed by underfloor heating.

The Living Spaces

The open plan contemporary living spaces provide a feeling of space. The large kitchen/dining room is very well equipped with a range cooker with double oven, grill and wok burner, a microwave, large toaster and an American fridge/freezer with an iced water dispenser. The utility room has a washing machine, separate tumble dryer and drying facilities. The living room is spacious and light with high vaulted ceilings, wood burning stove and large sliding doors that look out across the valley below. For your entertainment we provide Sky TV, a DVD player, a radio with iPod dock and unlimited WiFi. There is also a separate study.

Outside, there is also a large barn perfect for washing, drying and storing your bikes, kayaks and surf boards.

The cottage is extremely peaceful and designed for easy living so whether you decide to stay nearby or head out and explore all that the Ring of Kerry has to offer... you will have a comfortable home from home to return to.

Valley of the Hare is a luxury holiday cottage with a unique rural location in the heart of the Kerry Geopark which offers excellent privacy and fantastic access to hill walking yet is equally well located to explore the world famous Ring of Kerry coastal drive and to enjoy the famous Irish pubs in the pretty village of Sneem.

Explore the beautiful market town of Kenmare, walk the Kerry Way, play golf on the challenging links course at Waterville or in the grounds of the equally famous Parknasilla Resort.

Stroll on the stunning Derrynane Beach, tour Valentia Island and be mystified by the scale of the Skellig Michael monastery and the Staigue Ring Fort.

Killarney National Park is not to be missed with the famous Ladies' View, Ross Castle and Muckross House at it's heart.

Finally the Gap of Dunloe is a timeless mountain environment which opens up an endless number of hill walking and mountaineering possibilities - Climbing Carrauntoohil, Ireland's highest mountain, being one of the highlights.

We can help advise you on the best local walks as well as help arrange guides for longer walks, climbing and deer stalking. Ghillies can also be arranged as the area has some of Ireland's finest fly fishing.

Recommended pubs and restaurants include:

D. O'Shea's, Sneem

The Blind Piper, Caherdaniel

Tom Crean Fish and Wine, Kenmare

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Former London fashion designer now retired and enjoying running a small boutique holiday cottage business in the stunning County of Kerry, Ireland. 'The best part is sharing this beautiful corner of Kerry with our guests.'

Why the Owner Chose County Kerry, Ireland:
We had enjoyed many holidays and short breaks to the region so in 2006 we started to look for a permanent base along our favourite stretch of the Ring of Kerry. Despite being a little run down (see renovation photos on our web site) Valley of the Hare instantly captivated our imagination as the location and views are 'to die for' and the buildings are full of history and character. The cottage is the result of a great deal of careful thought and hard work. We love it...and are very happy to share it with you.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The views out across the valley with Kenmare Bay and the Beara Peninsula in the distance are timeless. Watching the skies change from the warmth of the sofa by the fire in the living room is hypnotic and truly relaxing. With fantastic walking on your doorstep and the lovely pubs in Sneem serving great food there is little more you need for a well deserved break away.
