Cottage Kerry, a centuries-old rustic farmhouse nestled beneath the Kerry Dark Sky Reserve, offers a serene retreat where sandy beaches await exploration by day, and the celestial wonders of the galaxy illuminate the night sky. Surrounded by picturesque fields and hills, this whitewashed cottage beckons weary city-dwellers to escape the hustle and bustle.

Come here to escape busy cities, write a novel or hike through valleys; only grazing cows and sheep disturb the silence.

The House and garden

The cottage stands within enclosed paddocks where energetic little ones can roam free. Active families will also love kayaking around Kenmare Bay or rock-pooling along the beautiful Iveragh Peninsula.



The kitchen proudly displays its original dresser, and a wood-burner graces the spacious dining room, inviting you to gather around for hearty meals and lively conversations. For quieter moments, the comfortable sitting room offers a sanctuary stocked with books and DVDs to while away rainy days.

Upstairs, two bright and airy double rooms have antique beds, while there’s another twin room with two single beds.

Downstairs, there are a bathrooms and a separate shower room.


The spacious garden is nestled amidst farmland and woodlands, equipped with outdoor seating. Explore the private trails that wind through the property, perfect for hiking, birdwatching, or simply enjoying the peaceful surroundings. In the evenings, gather around the barbecue for stargazing and toasted marshmallows.

Walks start from the door and you’re a kilometre from both the coast and the Ring of Kerry.
