About Breda Hickey

Owned by Neil and Breda. After living in this house for 14 years we have now down sized to a smaller house nearby as our two sons have grown up and moved away from home. We are not lonely though as we have 2 donkeys, 7 horses and 2 dogs to keep us company. Both of us are experienced in the hospitality sector as we previously owned a guesthouse in Killarney and are well aware of what visitors require to make their holiday a memorable one.

Breda Hickey purchased this house in 2000

Why Breda Hickey chose County Kerry

We have very happy memories of living in the house and we hope that the families and groups who will use this house for their vacation in Killarney will experience very good memories of it as well. It is a very spacious house with high ceilings and is ideal for people who wish to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays, weddings or for group activities such as walking, mountain climbing or golfing. Relax by the open fires with a book from our large selection on offer. We have a very good guide/driver who can take your family or your group on days trips to Ring of Kerry, Dingle, Beara Penninsula. Blarney or Kinsale if you wanted to take a day off from driving. Catering for buffets or dinner party can also be arranged and is very popular with our guests

What makes this house unique

Location,spaciousness and proximity to National Park and Killarney town. Our fully equipped kitchen has a large 6 ring induction cooker with two ovens and American Fridge with ice maker. Our pantry is stocked with condiments, spices and all basic cookery ingredients. The sitting rooms including bedrooms and bathrooms are very large and have high ceilings which makes them very bright and airy. Lovely mountain views from the front of the house. Our donkeys and horses love our guests particularly the children as they get fed with carrots and apples.

Amazing home in a beautiful town! Perfect golfer location

  • 5 of 5

This home is gorgeous and centrally located on the edge of Killarney. Killarney itself is a great little tourist town with easy access to some of the most stunning locations in Ireland, whether its golf or just visiting. The owners are very helpful and close by. The place was very clean and well appointed. Very modern kitchen and comfortable sitting rooms. We were 12 golfers and filled every bedroom but there was still space for all! Thanks Breda for a wonderful home!

Magnificent property

  • 5 of 5

It was a beautiful, well appointed house but also very comfortable and we felt very much at home. The location was great, tucked away in a private position but also close to the town and all the attractions. The owner met us when we arrived and was very welcoming and friendly.

This home was beyond our expectations we had seen Photographs and videos they just did not do justi

  • 5 of 5

The home was stunning,we all were quite sure that we had the best. Room in the house In writing this review I cannot find one thing to complain about or even a suggestion on improving the home.Breda left numbers for local taxi service,and they were prompt and extremely friendly.She also sent a local grocery store website to pre order groceries:they were delivered and put away prior to our. arrival,all very fresh and very reasonably priced.The home was five minutes from downtown Killarney and had beautiful views of the mountains We spent a lot of time in the kitchen and family room .There was plenty of room for everyone to gather for breakfast and plan the day,the kitchen was something you would find on the cover of House Beautiful!!!Do not pack a lot of clothes,leave room in your suitcase for all you buy to bring home,the laundry room was big and well equipped the washer and dryer were used quite often.We were there for a wedding and there were nine of us,all rooms were large and beautifully decorated,the entire experience was beyond everything we had hoped for. THE. PICTURES DO NOT DO JUSTICE You will not find anything that is more PERFECT!!!!!!!!

A beautiful home, wonderfully clean, very fun to gather in the kitchen in the morning. Six of of were completely comfortable in this gorgeous home. We did walk to town, but it is a hike, probably 1 or 2 miles, but with good sidewalks.

A Killarney Day Tour through the Gap of Dunloe by horse cart, then transfer to boats to take you down through the Lakes of Killarney to Ross Castle. Pick up and drop off by bus from the house. Hike on Torc, Mangerton or Carantuohill mountains.
