Overlooking majestic mountains disappearing into one of Ireland’s finest fishing lakes, the cottage offers a fitting mix of comfort and seclusion, the perfect base from which to experience the magic of County Kerry. Fall asleep to nearby lowing cows in the newly decorate bedrooms, two if which come with ensuite bathrooms and under-floor heating. After a bracing swim in the lake, you’ll be ready for a full Irish breakfast, looking out of the enormous windows as the mist rises above Church Island. Return home after a day’s activities to a hot bath and a glass of wine in front of the open turf fire.
The spacious sitting room was decorated recently with charming duck egg blue gingham sofas giving the room a nautical feel.
