Dereenaraig is a rustic, whitewashed farmhouse surrounded by fields and hills. Come here to escape busy cities, write a novel or hike through valleys; only grazing cows and sheep disturb the silence.


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

Inside, tradition and practicality combine..

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 original dresser still stands in the kitchen and our lovely neighbours at ‘Stones Throw’ provide guests with a beautiful welcome basket brimming with local produce. A selection of seasonal vegetables, handmade jams and herbs will be waiting on your arrival.

A wood-burner warms the large, old-fashioned dining room and there’s a comfortable sitting room stocked with books and DVDs for 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.
