About Helen Murtha
I am a New Yorker whose Mother grew up on this land which was part of a large farm, grazing cattle and fields of sheep on the mountain. I came over in 1958 for my first visit when the family home was still in pre-modern fashion. No electricity, no running water, just joy and fresh food cooking in the fireplace, with water from the well for the cooking and from the stream for the washing up. I fell in love with it all and was able to build this modern cottage on an acre of land given to me, where the view of the Bay and Mountains is quite special.

The cottage is comfortable and well organized for magnificant views no matter which window you are looking out of. It is in a quiet area just 1 mile from the delightful town or Kenmare. Just the walks along the lane give you a wonderful sence of a country place. Macklicudies Reaks are across the bay and as the sky changes, with or without clouds, I'd take more pictures.
M'y idéal holiday cottage
I could have spent the whole week just sitting on the deck looking out over the back garden (and bird feeder) to the gorgeous view out over the Bay of Kenmare. But there was so much to see and do ... the Ring of Beara & Ring of Kerry, the boat trip to the Skelligs, Healy Pass and Ballygheama Gap, the walking trails at Glenchaquin and Glengarriff, the birding in West Cork, the town of Kenmare ... We had a brilliant stay and would do it all over again except for longer!
Thank you for your thoughts about your Holiday at Tuatha Murtagh. I know exactly what you mean as I enjoy my stay there every time we go. I am blessed to have such a treasure in my life and It is an extra joy when someone sends in a comment. Be well and take care.
Lovely cozy cottage in a peaceful setting overlooking Kenmare Bay
We had a great 5 days at this comfortable, well equipped cottage. It has many nice touches such as North American friendly plug adapters and basic spices for cooking. We felt right at home. We recommend contacting Helen directly for instructions re location and gaining entry since the HomeAway site was no help!
Great location for day trips
Nice quiet cottage in good local with a great view. Not fancy but nice.
A cozy, little Irish cottage...2 bdrms...2 baths tucked away from the center of town but an easy access drive. Close to both the Ring of Beara & the Wild Atlantic Way as well as the Ring of Kerry - Glengariff - Castletownbere - Gleninchiquin Park & others. Spectacular view! Perfect.
I am the owner and yes, I love going there.
Beautiful weather in a beautiful place. We toured the Dingle, the Ring of Kerry and the Beara. I found the Bear the most beautiful and most interesting.
Family favorites - Our daily walk along the "New Lane" , about 1/2 hour to start the day, wave to neighbors and few cars. Up close and personal with the cows, goats and horses along the way. The views of the Bay and the mountains on both sides gives you an incentives to explore. The Seal-watching Cruise from the pier and the live theater at Carnegie Arts Center in town are must do's. Gleninchaquin Park on R571 west about 7 miles is best for breathtaking landscapes and scenery on a charming hike up the river walk as the river rushes by your path. Kenmare Stone Circle, the largest in SW Ireland, Molls Gap and the lakes beyond on the mountain road to Killarney are all worth a visit.
You need at least 7 days visit to savor all the special places.
