Holiday Rental House
We are four miles outside the heritage town of Kenmare, its 50 restaurants and its fantastic music. The Wild Atlantic Way, the Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara are on our doorstep. You can't see the lights of any other houses from here. Peace and tranquillity guaranteed. Gill and I are both musicians who play regularly on the local traditional music scene. Gill is a fiddle player and I play guitar and sing. We also teach so if you would like fiddle or guitar lessons as part of your holiday we can provide them. We have played every summer for the past 11 years in Casey's Bar at the Brook Lane Hotel in Kenmare and loved every minute of it. Gill is also a talented sculptor and I am a BBC commissioned Scriptwriter, if you are creative in any way this is a lovely place to be.

There are a million reasons to book this place for your stay. It's about 8km from Kenmare, and a great launching point to Ring of Kerry, Ring of Beara, Healy Pass, Glengarriff, etc. The excellent hosts also happen to be extremely talented musicians! Quiet, comfortable,...More

Chris & Gill's place is short drive from Kemare, so the location is great for exploring the town and the nearby gorgeous peninsulas. But make no mistake, this place is also a destination. The drive down the lane may take a small amount of bravery,...More
