Our small studio with its mini loft, fully equipped kitchen and wood stove will provide you with a cosy refuge after a day's trek or a trip to the sea.
We are located in a beautiful, tranquil and remote valley up a windy road at the foothills of mount Mangerton, 10 mins from the main Kenmare road.
The studio is across the yard from our family home and surrounded by a beautiful mature garden which you're welcome to explore. The studio contains a Bluetooth sound system and a washing machine.
This small studio built next to a traditional stone house is situated at the foothills of Mangerton, one of the highest mountains in Ireland.
The studio is on the ground of a mature garden with a large vegetable plot, lots of flowers, a poly tunnel, a greenhouse and a few hens. Guests are welcomed to vegetables and herbs.
A windmill and the solar panels provide the apartment with renewable energy and hot water to guarantee a truly sustainable stay!
We provide a few eggs on arrival providing the hens are laying.
The studio is quite small but cosy. It consists of a small bathroom with toilet and shower, a fully equipped kitchenette, a main room with a wood burning stove, a sofa bed for 2 and also a small loft which holds a double bed. The loft has quite a small amount of head room and so therefore some people may prefer to use the sofa bed.
Although we do not provide breakfast, the kitchen contains coffee, jam, butter, milk, cereals, eggs, oil and condiments.
We also provide bed clothes and towels. The bathroom is equipped with soap, shampoo and conditioner.
It is an ideal location for anyone looking for peace and quiet in the Kerry hills with a great choice of walking and maybe if you are lucky, a sighting of the White Tail eagle!
