Island Cottage
Sneem, Co. Kerry, Ireland

Island Cottage: Kerry

This unique luxury cottage sits on a tranquil and remote location in Rossmore Island, perfect incarnation of the ideal Irish holiday by the Ocean.

A tranquil haven, developed by its owners with the aim to respect its natural surroundings, this property has a plain sturdy exterior as if not to intrude too much with the nature outside.

The elegant and spotless interior has been designed professionally with the aim of 'bringing the outside in', with most rooms containing items reminiscent of the sea such as driftwood chairs and pebble lamps.


The property features two large and tastefully decorated bedrooms; one double en-suite and a second room (that can be arranged as twin or double) with an adjacent bathroom. Five star quality linens and towels.

The Cottage boasts a well equipped kitchen and welcoming sitting room with library and open fire, and a sun room with a flat screen TV entertainment system, cast iron stove and stunning ocean views where to relax and unwind after a day of touring or enjoying the outside.

The one acre grounds lead to the water's edge with a path following the stream down to the ocean, over a bridge ending at a waterside terrace and private beach.

Rossmore Island is connected to the famous Ring of Kerry by an ancient stone bridge and the cottage is only 5 miles from Sneem and 11 miles from the gourmet town of Kenmare, renowned for its fine-dining restaurants and music-filled traditional pubs.

Please note: There is no landline telephone. However the area does have good mobile phone reception.

"Most Perfect Respite"
We stayed two months and it could not have been more perfect. The cottage, property and location were everything we expected and much more. Excellent as a base for daily excursions if that is your interest, but don’t miss the beauty and peace of just spending quiet time at the cottage itself. This is a very special place you don’t want to miss. And I highly recommend booking in the off season: we enjoyed so much more without crowds and busses and in many cases nearly had it to ourselves. This micro climate gives you all kinds of weather in one week, even one day and that in itself is sensational and typically Irish, so don’t bother trying to time it just right, just book it and enjoy it. Superb hosts who haves earned their reputation.
