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.

In front of the house is a large lawn able to accommodate helicopter landings.

Strictly 7 night minimum stay policy.

"A wonderful one of a kind house!" Our golf group arrived and were totally stunned by the house, its view, the history behind the house and its owners. Would recommend this house to anyone for golf, weddings or just getting away. You will not be disappointed and it's well worth its value!

One week at THE historic Lakefront Manor was holiday heaven. It truly lived up to expectations, and even more. The location is magnificent, views absolutely brilliant, peace on earth. The facilities in Killarney, just 10 minutes away, were second to none, good restaurants, some shopping, and plenty of attractions in the area for all ages, families, etc. And this area of Ireland is a photographer's delight. The house amenities provided by the owners were top notch: welcoming note and some food to get us started, booklet of how-to's, things to do in the vicinity, and everything was as it should be - even the appliances! It feels very much like home away from home and provided all the best that a vacation in Ireland should offer. Car drives in the area some of the most beautiful in Ireland, around the Ring of Kerry, Beara peninsular, Dingle etc. And knowing you were driving back at the end of the day to the manor made the days very special.

Having traveled to Ireland for a golf trip in 2008 where we moved from location to location to play different courses, my husband and I talked about how wonderful it would be to stay in one place and play the surrounding courses. The location is exquisite - one of the few properties on Lake Leane with ever changing light and shadows. The grounds are magical with winding paths and magnificent trees - my only regret was that because of our golf schedule we didn't have more time to wander! We played several courses in the area all within 15 minutes to 2 hours from the house which made the location ideal for a golf trip. The house was the perfect size for 10 of us including our driver. The bathrooms are all updated and the bedrooms were beautifully appointed with wonderful fabrics and linens. The library and sitting room had fabulous fireplaces that we enjoyed in the early evenings after a long day on the links. The staff went out of its way to be helpful and welcoming. I would definitely use the services of their cook. After playing golf all day it was so wonderful to have dinner waiting for us in the evening! I was in constant contact with the owner in planning the trip - he could not have been more accommodating. He genuinely cares for the property and seemed to enjoy sharing it with people who appreciate how special it is. We feel honored to have stayed there and will never forget our time at this magical house.
