Our charming cottage is 300 years old and is right in the heart of Kenmare Town. The cottage has everything you need and yet is true in style to it's traditional origins. One large open bedroom upstairs, with sofabed, The living room downstairs also has a sofa bed. Fully equipped kitchen. Super cute and totally authentic! It is comfortable for four people (either sharing upstairs or using both rooms). Although please note the living and bedroom are connected with an open staircase.
Kenmare Town is one of the best towns in Ireland and will give you an experience of Ireland that is friendly fun. Stone Cottage is just 20 meters from the nearest shops, pubs (with food and music), theatre, library.

Ireland is all about the people and the music.
We look forward to sharing a very special place with you.
The best way to get here is either from Dublin - train to Killarney and bus to Kenmare. Or from Cork airport hire a car - it’s just a one hour drive.

More about us

  1. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, we divide our time between New Zealand and Ireland. We love hiking and discovering new places. Always up for an adventure…. And great food!
    No need for simultaneous swap - were super flexible.

    We believe in 'inclusivity' and believe that the world is a better place when we connect and share and trust. We love to travel and the idea of 'swapping' our special homes really fits with our world view. We very much look forward to 'swapping' with you. We are respectful and friendly and love meeting new people.

  2. We are respectful and will look after your home, plants and pets if required.
    We ran a guest lodge in NZ prior to the pandemic and understand what visitors need - our cottage is fun and quirky but has everything.
    Mark is a solar engineer, Fixing the planet one roof at a time! Clare enjoys property…. Fixing,re-designing,developing.

  3. We’ve had fantastic house swaps and love the concept of sharing. Mostly travelling with just one or two of us - our two responsible, working, early 20’s kids may join us on occasion.

Where is it?


Stone Cottage is located in the heart of Kenmare town. Wonderful traditional Irish musicians playing most evenings in summer just a few paces away. The town is a hive of activity. Ideally located to explore the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic Way. Skellig Michael is a must see, plus the locality is steeped in history. Local theater is exceptional if there is something showing.
