Dunkerron House: Kerry

Dunkerron is a luxury manor house on a 55-acre estate bordering Kenmare Bay. For clients who enjoy the good life, this is one of Kenmare's most beautiful self-catering vacation homes.

With many outstanding features, you can enjoy easy access to the shore via a scenic woodland walk. The grounds are home to the ruins of Dunkerron castle and to a spectacular walled garden.

Less than 3km from Kenmare town, this impressive vacation rental provides bright, open living spaces, furnished in a classic but understated style, in keeping with the character of the house.

Original Irish art throughout augments the peaceful atmosphere of the house.

The house oozes comfort, character and style with a generous living room, vestibule, conservatory, formal dining room (with a formal table which seats up to 16 guests), playroom each providing beautiful living areas.

The property boasts a large fully equipped kitchen combined with an adjoining informal dining area. Log fires in the living room, vestibule and dining room provide a pleasant atmosphere.

Accommodation and extras:

The house itself has eight luxurious bedrooms and each one with an en-suite bathroom, equipped with a power shower, three of which also include baths.

Downstairs, the house boasts a modern, fully-equipped kitchen, a playroom (with table tennis and a pool table), a conservatory, a small private bar, a vestibule, a living room (with an antique piano) and a dining room with a large table which seats up to 16. There are four open fireplaces in the house, and plenty of fuel is provided.

There is a minimum 4-night rate policy applied.

Beautiful, gracious house which was perfect for our 4 couples and 4 singles. Kathy the caretaker was so helpful and responsive to our questions. The living spaces were warm and cosy and the dining room grand but comfortable for long, chatty evenings. Everything you could need in terms of kitchen equipment and crockery was supplied. The location was excellent as we were able to walk or quickly drive the 3kms to Kenmare town.

Our 5 day stay in Dunkerron House was absolutely perfect. The house has so much character and is better than in the pictures. There is tons of space and rooms to hang out in. The kitchen was great which we used a lot. The dining room was fantastic for big family dinners. There is plenty of everything, wine glasses, plates etc you name it they have thought about it. The decor is beautiful. The art around the house is very interesting. The beds are so comfortable. It was a very special place to stay with my family (there were 13 of us) for the days before during and after our wedding. It was also a great place for our family and friends to call. The only problem was... we didn't want to leave. We'll be back! Thank you for a fantastic experience. Kind regards, Kate

Wow! This place was absolutely stunning and everything was as it looked in pictures but even better! Paudie and his wife Kathy helped us with checking in and checking out, they are absolutely wonderful people and extremely extremely helpful! We stayed for my fathers 60th bday and Moya was very helpful in recommending places to eat and see in the town, she also suprised us with a bday cake for my father on his bday from a local bakery... My whole family was blown away!!! Thank you to Moya, Paudie, Kathy and the wonderful town of Kenmare for a perfect stay and visit on our first trip to Ireland... Absolutely perfect!!!

Fantastic home located on a very picturesque landscape, wonderful stay had by all the guest. The wireless sound system and games room provided hours of entertainment and for those that slept in not a murmur could be heard from downstairs. Moya and the other landlords that we dealt with were a pleasure and we had no problems whatsoever. Everyone that visited us asked for details as they wanted to book this home themselves, would love to revisit sometime. Great host, great home and great town!
