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.


Our location on Muckross Road at the door step to the National Park offers our guests the option of cycling or walking from the house to see Muckross Abbey, Muckross House, Muckross Farms and Torc Waterfall. If you like to fish there is fly fishing on the river Flesk a very short walk and we can arrange permits. 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.

Spacious luxury home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 friends visited Killarney to celebrate our anniversaries and we were thrilled with the spaciousness and amenities of Cloverfield house.

Every room is well appointed and the huge well equipped kitchen allowed us all to cook and hang out together. We also grilled one night and served dinner in the dining room with candles and flowers.

Breda was a wonderful host answering all of our questions before the trip and offering suggestions of the area. We ordered groceries online before our arrival and Breda put them all away before we checked in.

I would highly recommend Killarney and Cloverfield house for friends or families!

Fantastic Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Cloverfield House is absolutely fabulous. Ourselves and 4 other families had the most wonderful break there last week. The house is stunning, very spacious and very well equipped. Most of the bedrooms have their own ensuite and we were very impressed. The pictures don't do the house justice. We loved the huge kitchen/dining/family room and spent every mealtime together comfortably. Killarney is a great town and within walking distance. With a couple of bike shops within walking distance you can easily hire a bike there is a great cycle network there.

We would love to go back and visit again soon.

Excellent place for a Killarney sojurn

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 6 seasoned international travelers (3 active senior couples) have shared houses in Italy and France and other destinations over the years and we enjoy the options a large, well appointed house affords. Cloverfield House met all our requirements, including more than enough space and a fine, well provisioned modern kitchen for our shared (recreational) cooking which we all enjoy. Breda and Neil were responsive and helpful in every way, and the location near Killearney was ideal--close enough for convenience, but not right in the heart of the busy traffic which is normal in August's high season for the area.
