Holiday Rental House
The property is sited on half an acre, on this picturesque Island, and is ideally placed near to the sea. It boasts some of the most spectacular views on the Island and the house has been designed with this in mind. The nearest (shale) beach is visible and within easy walking distance from the house. Equally the small fishing village of Portmagee with award winning pubs, restaurants and post office can be reached on foot. This house provides the opportunity to access the rugged Kerry countryside and an excellent base to tour the famous ring of kerry and beyond.The Island itself offers a wealth of activities including angling, diving, and island cruise charters are available at both Portmagee and Knightstown piers, and you can enjoy the freshly caught seafood in the local restaurants. ...The property is sited on half an acre, on this picturesque Island, and is ideally placed near to the sea.
