Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 6 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

Our home ('Triphailme') is a 3,000 sq ft. private home located on the Irish coast in southwest Kerry. It sits 500 yards from Waterville Golf Links ranked in the top 5 of Ireland's best Golf courses and 54th in the top 100 of the world. The house has an 180 degree unobstructed view of the Atlantic Ocean. The house, built in 1999, enjoys 2 living rooms, one on the first floor and one on the second floor, both with the ocean view.

The downstairs living room has a gas fireplace, perfect for returning from a day on the links. The house has 5 bedrooms en-suite; in addition there is a 6th bathroom in the center hall. Four of the bedrooms have ocean views.

The kitchen is very spacious with an eating area attached. A washer and dryer are located in the back pantry off the kitchen that also includes a large hot press. There is also a game room off the kitchen which has a real fireplace.

The Smugglers Inn, a 4 star Inn, is located half way between Triphailme and the golf course. The Smugglers offers fine dining at night as well as breakfast and lunch for those who don't care to cook. Triphailme is 3/4 of a mile from the village along the coast.

Brenda O'Sullivan, our house and reservations manager, is a wonderful resource for almost anything you could think of while staying at Triphailme. She can arrange airport pick up and drop off, drivers for evening activities, extra house cleaning, in-house catering and babysitters to mention a few. If you want to fish the local lake for gold medal salmon and trout with a guide, plan a unforgettable hiking trip, set up golf tee times or go horse back riding, Brenda will arrange it.

In addition to the world ranked Waterville Golf Links and Skellig Bay Golf Club, you have other spectacular golf courses to choose from. Dooks, Tralee, Killarney Fish and Game and Ballybunion are all an easy drive for day trips.

Touring scenic Valentia Island, lunching in the charming fishing village of Portmagee, or shopping at the world famous Chocolate Factory in Ballinskelligs is short half a day trip.

You can drive the historic and beautiful Ring of Kerry and lunch and shop in Kenmare and or Killarney.

About James Hall

We have been coming to Waterville since 1994 and consider it coming home when we return. We enjoy the golf, the fishing, the hiking, the scenic drives and the wonderful food. The choices for either pub food or fine dining are plentiful and close by. All the meat and fish are raised and caught locally. One never tires of our ocean views. The people of Waterville are the friendliest people in the world.

James Hall purchased this house in 1999

Why James Hall chose County Kerry

We initially came to Waterville for its top links golf course but now we enjoy the entire Irish experience when we return there. The lake and ocean fishing draws anglers from all over Europe. The spectacular irish landscape makes biking, hiking and strolling memorable. It is also an artist's dream come true.

What makes this house unique

The house is ideal for golf vacations. The rooms can comfortably accommodate 4 couples or 2 foursomes of golf buddies. Our home is also perfect for family reunions. The Smugglers Inn is a short stroll away and can accommodate your overflow. It is also open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The golf, views, hiking, restaurants and people are what visitors love the most when they come to Waterville.

Galasso Family Vancouver BC Canada

Our family stayed at Jimmy's lovely home at the end of August. We were in Waterville for a family holiday and to attend the Chaplin Festival.

The home is large, comfortable, and has a lovely family room with a very cozy, warm fireplace with gas fire.

The location of the house is excellent , just a short, nice, walk into the village, beach, restaurant, golf club , and the view is just magical . We also found the ' flags' a great help in finding the right house !

There was lots to do while we were there, and our family ranged from ages 70 to 6.

Brenda is a great lady and very helpful in helping us with all our questions !

Thanks again Jimmy, my family in Ireland may be inquiring on booking a stay in the future.

Margaret .

We loved the house, plenty of room for everyone to have their own private space. It was so relaxing and the town was wonderful and friendly and well within walking distance.

An Incredibly Memorable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Although a few flight issues delayed us, everything after that took a sharp uptick. The home is gorgeous and spacious...well-equipped and clean. The seven of us had more room than needed, with the option of being altogether...or each separated to our own quiet area. Brenda was gracious and the perfect Home Manager. She offered great suggestions on activities, made golf reservations, dinner options, and more. She is a true asset to your stay. We will return, as our vacation was five months ago and we still talk about it. Jimmy, a heartfelt thank you for making this trip of a lifetime a dream come true.

Owner's Response: Scott, I am thrilled that you had a great family vacation at Triphailme. I agree that it is a great place for a good size gathering and the village and the people are what makes that part of Ireland so special to visit. You and your family are always welcome.

Nearby scenic drives you want to experience;

Skelligs Ring and Ring of Kerry; villages to visit, Portmagee, Valentia Island and Ballinskelligs; and make sure you stop in at the world famous Chocolate Factory in Ballinskelligs. If you don't want to drive, we highly recommend Goggins Trips and Tours, a local family owned tour business. They are also great to use for groups the various golf courses in SW Ireland.
