The property is 5 minutes from Templenoe Pier, which is a hub of activity for the local community, swimming, fishing, boating (each pier in the area has it's own crews and races are held on Sundays during the summer months and are hottly contested), kayaking, triathalon training, shellfish collecting and, of course, a chat!

We are halfway between two other local community hubs, Pat Spillane's Pub and the Blackwater Tavern Pub in Blackwater. The Blackwater Tavern holds traditional dances on Friday nights, which are fantastic way to meet the local people and learn more about the area.

Cappanacush is 10 minutes drive from Kenmare town with its award winning restaurants and bars. We are minutes from Dromquinna Resort and the fabulous Boat House Restaurant.

The house is minutes from the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara is just across the Bay. To drive across the Caha Pass and down into West Cork to the towns of Glengarriff and Bantry is a must, as should a trip to Garnish Island be.

You have a choice of golf courses from the Ring of Kerry course (less then 5 minutes from the house), to the Kenmare Golf Club, to the internationally renowned Waterville Links Course or Killarney Golf Club (where the Irish Open was held). There is no shortage of golf courses each with a more spectacular view than the previous one.

Almost directly across the bay is Star Sailing Activity Centre with both land and water based activities for all the family. If a more sedate pace is your preferance there are a choice of boat tours of the bay to spot the wild life and hidden trasures which can only be viewed from the water.


Owner info

Why the Owner Chose County Kerry, Ireland:
This location has so many benifits, close to the towns of Kenmare and Sneem and a great community welcome for visitors. It has all the comforts of a real home and the space to relax and enjoy your surroundings.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
There are many unique features in the house, the views, the beautiful fireplace, the gallery landing on the first floor or the handmade stained glass doors leading from the dining room into the sitting room but it has a unique atmosphere when you walk through the door which is a special welcome to all guests.
