A stunning location to stay, This spot appears to have its own micro climate. This is evident from the plants growing in the garden. The weather systems are visible approaching from the Atlantic and create a magical relaxing atmosphere. Its a great base for exploring but a car is a must. Kenmare is a 10 minute drive. Lots of choices for a drink and somewhere to eat. Closer to the cottage is the Ring Of Kerry Golf Club where non members are welcome in the restaurant. Killarney is an hour away. Certainly will be back when we need a chill week. We flew into Cork and hired a car. Very easy and a great way to see this part of Ireland.
