Sneem 5 miles. Nestled in the heart of the countryside, five miles from the popular village of Sneem on the Ring of Kerry is this cosy and traditional detached cottage. Lovingly decorated throughout, this cottage is ideal for couples or groups of friends wishing to escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and enjoy the sheer peace and tranquillity of this countryside location. This lovely cottage boasts a warm and inviting sitting room complete with an open fire where you can kick back and relax, whilst soothing any aching bones after a day of walking or cycling, and you can also find a simple but well-equipped kitchen to cater for all your needs. Leading off the sitting room is a quiet and relaxing reading room, where you can retire with a good book or where children can play games. Upstairs, two spacious bedrooms complete the accommodation offering a variety of sleeping arrangements to cater for many party types. To the front of the cottage is a sprawling rustic garden and on a clear day you can see the Atlantic Ocean on the horizon. Just a few miles away is the charming village of Sneem, which means ‘The Knot’ due to the knot like swirling of the River Sneem meeting the currents of Kenmare Bay just below the village. Sneem is home to a selection of traditional pubs featuring regular live Irish music, craft shops and eateries. It lies along Ireland’s famous Wild Atlantic Way and is surrounded by stunning seascapes and breathtaking scenery in all directions. Why not explore some of the sandy beaches along the peninsula at Derrynane, Castlecove and Waterville, and golf courses are plentiful with courses at Kenmare, Parknasilla and Waterville. Other attractions include Killarney Lakes and National Park, boat trips to the Skelligs and the stunning Beara Peninsula. This delightful cottage near Sneem is the perfect choice for a relaxing Irish break.
