Great check-in experience100% of recent guests gave this home’s check-in process a 5-star rating.

Fabulously set in its own glacial amphitheatre, in the Macgillycuddy Reeks, Shepherd's Cottage is the place for peace and relaxation, or to write, read, paint, record …there is a Yoga/ Pilates studio complete with ping pong table! Hike or bike along the Kerry Way - the whole area is a wildlife photographer's dream. For stargazing this is the heart of Kerry's Dark Sky Reserve. Plenty more outdoor pursuits await you! Shepherds Cottage is in a remote and beautiful location.
