Historic Lakefront Manor: Kerry

Built in 1869, this stunning property located directly on the lake shore of the world famous Lakes of Killarney is now available for unforgettable luxury holidays.

There are many private paths and walks on the 100 acres estate, and the remaining land is an active farm.

The House boasts wonderfully spacious living areas, all with high ceilings and impressive plaster work.

The atmospheric Library and elegant Drawing Room are the classic country house retreats with antique books, a large oak desk, armchairs, sofa and a satellite TV.

The Dining Room with stunning views, features an expandable dining table for up to 18 guests. With gilt pelmets and blue painted walls, the room works well for both lunch parties and long convivial dinners.

The Kitchen/Breakfast Room successfully combines the traditional morning room with a generous modern kitchen which has granite worktops and an impressive central island. There are ample facilities: 3 ovens, a microwave, a large induction hob, a dishwasher, large fridge and plentiful china and cutlery. A modern oak table makes this the ideal spot for family meals.

The Studio/Playroom is a modern room with double height ceiling and a study gallery with a door to the children's playroom garden. Used as a prep kitchen for larger events, normally features a sofa, table and chairs, a TV/DVD and a selection of board games.

An unusual feature of the House is the very large Hall.
The Front Hall is dominated by a huge Golden Oak sideboard mounted with a stag’s head.
The Middle hall has a large and ornate dark wood staircase to the first floor, lit by 2 large Venetian windows, reflected in large gilt mirrors, a snooker table a Bechstein baby grand piano.
The Back Hall also offers a comfortable reading or relaxing space with a large sofa, a chess table and a bookcase full of novels.

There are 4 principal bedrooms (sleeping 8) on the first floor, 3 have en-suite bathrooms and the other has a separate shower room and separate wc/bathroom.

All the rooms feature top of the range white Egyptian Cotton bed linen and large fluffy towels. Most have working shutters as well as blinds and curtains.

There are 2 further bedrooms on the Garden Floor. One room with a modern 5'3" (King size) four poster bed and one with a 4' (Large Single) bed. Both rooms have a door to a shared shower room/WC and can be used together as a private suite..

Next to these bedrooms is a Utility Room with 2 washing machines, 2 dryers, a gas hob and a combination microwave oven.

The estate covers over 100 acres with many private walks. Boat trips and fishing can be arranged from your doorstep and the surrounding area has fabulous walking, climbing, cycling, horse riding, golf, fishing and entertainment facilities.

Thank you for accommodating our large retinue with such grace and good humour and for bending over backwards in trying to meet our sometimes chaotic schedule! The Lakefront Manor is a truly stunning property in a breathtaking setting.

We came as part of a group of old friends and were wowed by this magnificent house. The house was immaculate and very well serviced by the staff - everything exceeded our (high) expectations.

My family and I spent 2 weeks in Ireland, the highlight of which was our stay at Lakefront Manor. We've travelled a fair bit over the years but have never stayed anywhere that had our jaws dropping as much as this - the views that change constantly from ominous grey to Mediterranean blue to red sunset are every bit as engrossing as the photos suggest.
