Quaint seafront home on the Ring of Kerry & Wild Atlantic Way. Situated 4km outside of Cahersiveen and a stone's throw from Valentia Island ferry with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean. The house is also within driving distance of Portmagee, where there are daily trips to the Skellig islands. Visit the Kerry Cliffs, Valentia Island, Kells Bay House and Gardens and walk the breathtaking famous walking trails of South Kerry. Perfect for those looking for an authentic Irish experience

Other things to note

My grandfather build this house in the 1980s. It was his vision to have a home right by the sea. The house is quirky with plenty character.

Please feel free to enjoy the sunsets and stormy seas on our beautiful, recently painted front patio but be very careful on the steps down as they are made from stones taken from the old workhouse in Bahaghs Cahersiveen!

You also have access to a private strand which you're welcome to enjoy and dip your feet into the wild Atlantic but again be mindful of the steps down as they are quite narrow.

The house has not been changed much since the 80s so if you're looking for mod cons this probably isn't the place for you, however if you like going back to basics and want to stay in a house that has been built through a locals vision, this is the place for you.

We had some nice days in the house! Its directly at a private beach. Although the weather was not the best, we could go down to the water, sit upstairs to watch over the sea or sit inside an listen to the breakwater. Iseult was always contactable and helped as soon as we had a question or needed something. It is a big house with a special atmosphere! It was brilliant to stay in an original irish house. We made trips to places around that area, as f.e. Valentia Island (you can even go by feet to the ferry) or nearly the whole Ring of Kerry. A little town is not far away. We can definitely recommend the accommodation to other people and thank Iseult for the stay!

Iseult was friendly and very helpful and she was also very knowledgeable about the local area. The house was in a superb location which more than made up for any little things that weren't working in the house. Would definitely like to stay there again.

The house is old but full of character & personality, I loved it, right by the water with a beautiful view, sounds of seagulls fishing for breakfast every more was invigorating. If you are not looking for all mod con's and modern furnishings then this is the place for you. If you enjoy an old fashioned bath instead of a shower then this is the place for you. The house is out of town and you need to have transport to get around. The good restaurants in town are pricey but the quality is good. Lovely friendly people in town as a solo traveler i enjoyed the chats :) Iseult & Katie are wonderful people and did their best to ensure i had a wonderful holiday which i appreciated very much indeed.

The house has beautiful sea views. Brilliant locations lots of patios. These views make it work staying at this house.But due to the drops from the patio would not recommend to bring children, or drunk adults :). The decor is a bit dated ( especially in the kitchen and bathrooms) but this is reflected in the price which is very reasonable for the area. Iseult is a great host. She was attentive to any need any problems we had. She could not have been more helpful.

We were the first guests of Iseult. The house is on the outskirts and the location is great (if you have a car of course) the nearest neighbors are a few hundred meters away, you have a terrace right by the sea and a small staircase leading to the beach. In the kitchen and in the house there is enough space and everything is available. 3 min by car is the next supermarket and shortly thereafter the city center with bars shops etc. Iseult was not there, but her friend Sarah was there and showed us everything and our questions also about the environment etc. answered when we returned Kerry we will definitely stay there again DEUTSCH: wir waren die ersten Gäste von Iseult. Das Haus liegt am Stadtrand und die Lage ist super (wenn man ein Auto hat natürlich) die nächsten Nachbarn sind ein paar hundert Meter entfernt, man hat eine Terasse direkt am Meer und eine kleine Treppe führt an den Strand. In der Küche und im Haus findet man genug Platz und es ist alles vorhanden was man braucht. 3 min mit dem Auto ist der nächste Supermakrt und kurz danach die Stadtmitte mit Bars Shops etc. Iseult war nicht da, aber ihre Freundin Sarah war da und hat uns alles gezeigt und unsere Fragen auch über die Umgebung etc. beantwortet, wenn wir wieder in Kerry sind werden wir auf jeden Fall wieder dort übernachten
