SUPERHOST
Entire cabin · 2 guests · 2 beds · 1 bath

Rural Mountain Retreat - Find yourself in NatureOur home (a working farm) and The Cottages are nestled beneath Ireland's highest mountain, Corrán Tuathail. We are situated on the famous Kerry Way walking route and in the heart of the Reeks District. The collection of houses were some of the last in Ireland to be connected to the electricity grid (in 1978) due to their isolated location in one of Ireland’s most unspoiled valleys on the edge of the Killarney National Park.

Unique activities hosted by local experts vetted for quality

  • Shepherds Farm Walk- Dingle Peninsula
    We will walk around the farm for about 2 hours. This is a hill farm so involves a bit of hill walking. We will see our sheep and feed them if winter time (they live solely on grass in the summer time), You will most likely see our Chickens if they are not busy doing other chicken stuff. You will also see some wonderful scenery on the walk. We will visit the Peat Bog where we used to cut turf for the fire. We have a number of Archaeological sites on the farm which we also visit. We will see our Fairy Fort and our Standing stone. If you like this experience but the scheduled time and date does not suit, please message me and we might be able to schedule a time that does. Other things to note Walk is on a hill sheep farm so we don't allow dogs. The walk is on average mountain land sometimes wet, good walking boots/shoes and raingear needed. Be prepared to walk up to 2 hours. Enjoy !

  • Alpaca Trekking Through A Magical Forest
    Alpacas take to trekking quite easily. They walk in a line, one behind the other on a head collar and lead rope. Our guided treks start at the alpacas' barn and ascend into the forest. Each trek lasts about 1.5 hours. The walk itself is at a very leisurely pace, and is not at all strenuous. When you arrive on site, the alpacas will be grazing, and we will call them in using their yellow food bucket! Simon and I will introduce you to the alpacas whist getting them ready with head collars and leads. We will have a brief health & safety chat, as well as give you some idea of what to expect and some pointers so you can interact with your alpaca. We will also introduce you to all of their individual quirks and personalities. Alpacas are not able to carry packs or people, so they will accompany us as we walk the forest trail. We try not to let them stop to nibble grass for long periods. Half-way around the walk, we release the alpacas in an enclosed area, so we can feed them treats, and you can get very close and intimate with them. They will love you when we give you the apples to feed them. There will be plenty of photo opportunities throughout your visit. Our spinning demonstration and luxury fibre display after the trek may not possible during Covid.

  • Sheep Herding-Authentic Farm Experience
    PLEASE USE THE “REQUEST AN EXPERIENCE” FEATURE TO GET A HERDING AT A TIME THAT SUITS YOU. In this unique and intimate experience, you will see Irish farming shown exactly as it is. Highs, lows and everything in between. You'll view Rose the sheepdog in action, herding up a flock of wild mountain sheep. Once she is finished, you'll get the chance to be close up to the sheep. This is a fantastic photo opportunity! Sinead and Timothy provide interesting facts and an authentic insight on the day-to-day life of a local in Ireland. You'll witness first hand how much farmers really love and care for animals, and realise that their comfort and welfare is top priority. It’s a hard way of life but so rewarding on so many levels. You will gain a lot of knowledge about life on an Irish farm, and Ireland in general in this experience. You can also try to understand an entirely different lifestyle than your own. Other things to note **GROUP DISCOUNT AVAILABLE-message host to avail** You’ll be on a farm with farm noises, farm smells and farm terrain!

  • Guided walk Carrauntoohil
    Carrauntoohil is Ireland's highest mountain, with 1,038 metres of height (3,405 feet) in County Kerry. I will meet with my hiking group at Kate Kearney's Cottage in The Gap of Dunloe at 09:30. After checking gear and supplies, we will drive to Lisleibane free car park in 10 minutes. Please, bring your own transport. On our way, perhaps we meet sheep, we watch the birds soar, we smell the gorse flower as we walk into Hag’s Glen for one hour before our first rest at the base of the Hag’s Tooth. We then prepare for the summit and the actual climb, with short scrambles and steep climb we will head via O’Shea's Gully. Setting off, as we rise higher and higher we are greeted with better and better views, we experience more pleasure than pain. When we finally arrive at the summit we are awestruck by the views, the best in Ireland in a clear day. We can see the entire County of Kerry, the Black Valley, Dingle Peninsula, West Cork, even the Atlantic Ocean. Priceless!! With our well deserved rest, refreshed and elated it's time to descend taking our time and being extra careful we work our way down via Devil’s Ladder, or Zig-Zag path; or Heaven's Gate depending on weather conditions and safety. Distance of 13 km. Total climbing 950 metres. Duration 6+ hours. Carrauntoohil is a strenuous walk ideal for a person with a good fitness level and hill walking experience.
