About our home

Designed and built with a passion for architecture, art and an appreciation for the "good things in life".
Respecting times past and the environment whilst embracing the present.

A classic lodge style home, set in 2 acres of garden designed by Chelsea gold medalist landscape architect.
It is a haven of beauty and comfort with an eccletic mix of antique and new, for comfort, entertaining and relaxation.

The kitchen is the heart of our home, we are a "foodie" family who love good food, to cook and entertain at home.
We have a well stocked pantry and a large selection of interesting cookery books. Aga, gas and electric cookers.
Doors open from our kitchen living room, sun room, sitting room, play room and ground floor bedroom onto a large deck and terrace area , Southwesterly facing and over looking Killarney National Park and the Lakes of Killarney.

Our garden has lots of little secret hide aways .
To the rear of the house is a large circular raised mound , on top you
will find a cobbled , sunk in stone circle seated area centered with a firepit .This is a magical area to see the stars at night , to watch the sun go down , or to sit and read your book by the fire - outside !!
Another hidden gem is our curving , meandering willow structure , leading to an inner sanctum of calm in our hut .

Inside, too we have open fireplaces with plenty of firewood, and solid wooden floors throughout , except for our carpeted quiet relaxing sitting room with a grand piano.

We have 4 bedrooms all with bathrooms.Our Main bedroom with French doors opening onto a balcony overlooking the panoramic views of our beautiful National Park.

Our home is heated with geo thermal under floor heating and has a high pressure water system.

Our house is nestled within farm and park land . On one side by a field with 2 broad mares and foals and on the other side a farm with a pedigree herd of Fresians.

We love to entertain our friends and our children's friends but also enjoy quiet time,in the privacy,peace and tranquility of our happy home .

We have family bikes and a go cart , and the use of 2 cars.

KIllarney, to borrow from the Lonely Planet guides for a description;
"Killarney is a well-oiled tourism machine in the middle of sublime scenery that looks swell on a postcard. Its manufactured tweeness is renowned ...... it has many charms beyond its obvious proximity to lakes, waterfalls, woodland and moors dwarfed by 1000m-plus peaks. In a town that’s been practising the tourism game for over 250 years, competition keeps standards high, and visitors on all budgets can expect to find superb restaurants, great pubs and ­good accommodation."
Killarney was voted Irelands Tidiest Town in Ireland for 2011 .

Kerry Airport is 16 km from Killarney town ,
Cork Airport is 80 km
Dublin Airport is 300 km
