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.

 

Manager info

About: 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 food around the fireplace and 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.
