About Jer Foley
Kenmare Rentals is the most recent addition to our family business. Owning and managing O'Donnabhain's Bar & Guest House for many years, we have seen an opening for Self Catering / Holiday Homes as many of our initial guests who are staying with us for the last few years, are spending longer periods here, and it is another alternative.. We have also realised that it can be more cost-efficient and often more convenient for guests who are visiting Kenmare for longer periods of time, to make themselves at home in one of our Self Catering Holiday Homes . If it is your dream to spend a week in a Holiday Cottage in Co. Kerry, then we can make that dream come true. In recent years, we have therefore newly built or carefully restored, and lovingly furnished and fitted out a small number of Self Catering properties in or near Kenmare town. The properties were designed and finished to our own high standards of comfort and requirement for space, and will truly offer you a home away from home. Kenmare is an ideal base to explore, the South West of Ireland . Co. Kerry, with the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, and the Gap of Dunloe on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful Ring of Beara in Co. Cork, which starts in Kenmare.
Jer Foley purchased this Cottage in 2008

The property we keep going back to !
We have been back to Carrig Beag many times, it’s fantastic!
This perfectly located cottage is full of charm and only a 2 minute walk to the center if town.yet in a really quiet location. Everything you could need is provided and it’s spotless clean always.
This is a lovely, cosy cottage with all mod cons ideally situated a minute’s stroll to the center of Kenmare. Great water pressure, WiFi, private parking, washer and dryer - everything perfect. Jer is a great guy, communicated before arrival with check in instructions and some very useful information on the area (which is stunning). Highly recommend booking Carrig Beag and hope to return.
Weekend break in Kenmare
Great time in Kenmare again. Carrig Beag is fantastic,perfectly located, spotless and with everything you need included!
Great unit with exceptional location
Very nice unit, older building outside with modern inside. We were there for over two weeks and was greatly impressed with the unit and the location was right downtown, a minute walk to downtown pubs and shops. Was able to walk everywhere. Had good WiFi, satellite tv for those days staying in the condo. Washer and dryer was also great. The towel heaters in the bathrooms were great. As you can see this unit has a lot to offer, would definitely stay there again.
OK but in need of a refresh
Kenmare is a lovely friendly town and the restaurants are excellent. The house is in a great location and perfectly set up for a family. However I would say that there’s not a great deal for children to do in the area.
Though the house was furnished with everything we needed, the first impression was unfortunately a damp and musty feeling. It was all clean on the surface but under beds and sofas was very dusty, teacloths were smelly once wet and towels were a bit old. A bit of a shame. Feels like it’s in need of a refresh.
Carraig Beg stands in Market Street, one of the historic lanes in the heart of Kenmare. It is an end house in one of the beautiful Victorian terraces that still grace the town. The quiet back street location is just a stone's throw from Kenmare's wealth of restaurants and bars. All amenities and services are close at hand but sitting in the sun in the rear garden, the hustle and bustle of the town seems light years away.
