Located in the heart of the Town of Kenmare, Peggy Cronin’s Cottage is the ideal choice for your holiday.

The home is spacious, bright and modern in finish. The Cottage consists of three bedrooms – one double ensuite and two twin rooms. The back garden is enclosed and suitable for children. This is a three storey house and has quite a few steps throughout so perhaps not suitable for people with mobility issues.

The kitchen is fully fitted and equipped with all modern conveniences including electric cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave. In addition, all necessary kitchen utensils and crockery are provided.

All bed linen and towels are provided.

Electricity for heating and lighting is an extra charge of €8 per day and is payable in advance of your stay to Dream Ireland.

A refundable security deposit is required on check in. This is €100.00 and payable in cash to the supervisor. It is refunded on departure once there are no breakages or damages.

Pets are welcomed to Peggy Cronins Cottage on a request basis, please mention at time of booking if you would like to bring your pet. There is an additional charge of €30.00 per pet payable onsite. We respectfully ask that you keep your dog on a lead while outdoors and in the tiled area of the home. Pets must be prearranged with Dream Ireland prior to arrival. If you are bringing along a pet the security deposit is slightly higher at 150.00 (again this is refunded on departure once the house is left as it’s found)
