Kerry Coast House - Waterfront House on Kenmare Bay, on the Wild Atlantic Way

Location & Directions

"County Kerry contains some of Ireland's most iconic scenery: surf-pounded sea cliffs and soft golden strands, emerald-green farmland criss-crossed by tumbledown stone walls, mist-shrouded bogs and cloud-torn mountain peaks.With one of the country's finest national parks as its backyard, the lively tourism hub of Killarney spills over with colourful shops, restaurants and pubs loud with spirited trad music." Lonely Planet

The Kerry Coast House is on the waters of Kenmare Bay, only a 10 minute drive from the centre of the wonderfully picturesque Kenmare town on the Ring of Kerry. It is located on the scenic Wild Atlantic Way, the longest coastal, driving route in Europe, which stretches from Co. Donegal to Co. Cork.

The south facing self-catering bungalow, in its tranquil location, looks across Kenmare Bay, onto the Beara Penninsula and has the Kerry Mountains at its back. The bottom of the garden leads on to the seashore - only 50 metres from the house.
