About the Property

Large house situated on an Irish cattle farm with mountain and meadow views

Come and stay at Knockcarrig House and you will find your ideal balance between town and country. Our newly built property is situated on the edge of our private 20 acre farm, yet is less than a 5 minute drive to Killarney.

Located just off the N22 in the residential area of Lissivigeen, Knockcarrig House offers you the perfect base for touring the Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula and the Ring of Beara. Green fields surround the house and in the Summer you will find our cattle enjoying all that lovely grass that nature has to offer :)

Elegant country living awaits you at Knockcarrig House. Parts of the interior are drawn from the natural landscape-from the golden hue of hay in the Summer to the proud pink foxgloves found in the mossy stone ditches. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with two possessing both a separate bath and shower.

Enjoy fabulous feasts at our custom designed 10 seater oak table found in our panoramic dining room which boasts mountain and meadow views. Relax in the evening with a good book in front of a roaring fire or challenge someone to a game of chess- the winner doesn't have to do the dishes!

Whether you wish to explore Killarney's lakes, climb its mountains, cycle its hills and valleys or stay put and enjoy the good life , the choice is yours........................

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose County Kerry, Ireland:
Welcome to Knockcarrig House, Killarney, Ireland! Here we offer a little bit of Irish country living in Killarney to holidaymakers. We built Knockcarrig on the edge of our private 20 acre cattle farm which is less than a 10 minute drive to the town centre of Killarney. 'Knockcarrig' comes from the Irish language which means hill of the stones. As farmers who feel an incredible link to the land, it was only fitting to call our house after the farm land on which it is found. If you were to literally start digging in the fields, you would find plenty of stones in the earth! Traditionally these stones were then used to build walls to divide the fields of the farm. And as for the hill part- well if you were to walk from one end of the farm to the other, you would find yourself climbing a little hill which gives you a panoramic view of the magnificent McGillicuddy Reek mountains!
