Cleady River Cottage, Kenmare is a newly extended and decorated traditional stone cottage set in a very quiet, peaceful and private riverside location with an open log fireplace and Wi-Fi. A new garden room has a stove fireplace and has Satellite television with Sky sports and a BOSE stereo where you can plug in your music and relax after a days sightseeing! The kitchen is fully equipped with lots of utensils and has everything you need to prepare a sumptuous evening meal, all you need are the ingredients and ability! The south facing patio area is a lovely place to have coffee in the morning or a glass of wine and watch the sun going down in the evening.

We had a fantastic stay in Cleady River Cottage. The cottage itself is beautifully decorated and really cosy. We found it really comfortable and was well-equipped, with everything we needed for our stay. It could be a bit tricky to find but we were given comprehensive instructions beforehand and had no trouble which was really helpful. The cottage is situated...

down a tree covered lane, past a few cows and then a gurgling river as we entered the property. large grounds, well manicured and a beautifully presented house. Inside was satellite TV, a Bose system, lots of space for some private time (2 big sitting rooms and a kitchen) and a very well equipped kitchen. Heated up quickly and the...

Management response:

This cottage was just perfect. Everything about it made our holiday, it was so clean, really well stocked with all you need, great location and beautifully decorated. It's almost spoilt us for future holidays, we loved this cottage and absolutely loved Kenmare. Will definitely be back.

About the neighbourhood
This modern, very comfortable cottage is within a five minute drive of Kenmare in a quiet valley, surrounded by about two acres of garden and with the Cleady River flowing to the rear. At the end of a private laneway with car parking for plenty of cars and a south facing patio area, is Cleady River Cottage. Three bedrooms, four bathrooms and a newly constructed sittingroom with a traditional stove fireplace and free Wi-Fi to ensure you can google your plans for the next days sightseeing, this is one of the best self catering homes available in Kerry and Kenmare. Kenmare is the jewel in Kerrys Ring of Kerry. With lots of superb restaurants and pubs theres plenty of options for dining differently each night of your holiday. There is a quiet country road back into town from the cottage which... more
Getting around
Kenmare is on the Ring of Kerry and also very close to the Ring of Beara, so Cleady River Cottage is ideally suited for day trips to both. Killarney is about 40 minutes drive away and Muckross House and park are also well worth a visit. Don't miss the view from Molls Gap over the Lakes of Killarney - about a 20 minute drive from the cottage!
Car advised
How to get there
Airport: Cork: 80.0 km
Railway: Killarney: 42.0 km
Ferry: Rosslare: 285.0 km
As the cottage is in a rural area about 3km away from Kenmare I would recommend a car as public transport is not good in this part of Ireland!
