Country Style Self Catering With Breath Taking Sea Views And Tranquility

Located in: Waterville
The Farmhouse has a modern spacious eat-in kitchen which boasts a typical Irish peat / log burning solid fuel stove which creates a tranquil cosy atmosphere and simultaneously heats the other rooms also. From the kitchen and bedrooms located on the upper floor you can enjoy breath taking views of Ballinskelligs Bay and on a clear day the 'Statue of Liberty' in New York might be possible if you could see far enough.
The heating system incorporates oil and solid fuel which is designed to work simultaneously or one system at a time.
There is a spacious hot press which can be used for airing / storing additional clothing. The benefits of a stone constructed house are that on a warm sunny summers day the house is cool while in winter the house is much warmer than a block built house.

The County Kerry region: The warm influence of the Gulf Stream which passes off the coast has a very positive and pleasant effect on our climate all year round and is home to a sub -tropical vegetation. We never get extremes in temperature either in winter or summer which makes it a very pleasant part of the country to live in.
There are numerous places of both historical and scenic locations to visit in the area.
Daniel O Connell's house in Derrynane, stone fort's, old castle's, Skellig's Rock, Killarney National Park & Muckross House, Arts Centre 'Cill Rialaig,' and Crag Cave Castleisland are just some of the big attractions in the area.
The biggest attraction of all being the breathtaking views from the famous 'Ring of Kerry' which is renowned for its beauty and rugged landscape. It is a natural wonderland of forest, blanket bog, river, lake, sandy beach and hill, including Ireland's highest peak, 'Corran Tuathail'.
The world renowned "Skelligs Ring" has been named as one of the best places in the world to visit.
The Kerry landmark has made it into the top ten regions in the world for travellers by Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2017 guide.
Described in the guide as 'perhaps Ireland's most charismatically wild and emerald stretch of coastline' the 32km Skellig Ring is an extension of the famous Ring of Kerry.
Stretching from Waterville to Ballinskelligs and back around through Portmagee, the coastal gem overlooks Skellig Michael , the ancient monastic island where Star Wars: The Force Awakens was filmed.
Famously, Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley, as Luke Skywalker and Rey appeared on the island in the closing scene of the most recent Star Wars film. Lonely Planet spokeswoman Noirin Hegarty said: The Skelligs Ring should be on every traveller's must-see list.
The Skelligs Ring features tenth on the list of top regions for 2017, which was topped by Choquequirao in Peru; followed by Taranaki in New Zeland; the Azores in Portugal; North Wales and South Australia.
The Dingle Peninsula is also renowned for it's rugged beauty and it was here that the film 'Ryans Daughter' starring Robert Mitchum was made. Slea Head which is located at the far end of the peninsula has some breathtaking scenery to offer.

So what's so special about Kerry? - What sets it apart from other holiday destinations? Well, for a start it has all the essential ingredients; great scenery, genuinely friendly people, lots to do and see, the highest standard of accommodation and numerous first class restaurants. However, it's the things that are unique to Kerry that make it such a popular visitor destination, such as its ancient history, its rich culture, the rare flora and fauna and a genuine pride of place by its people.
