About our home

Very relaxing approx 1150 sq ft, three bedroom dormer cottage, with enclosed private patio to the rear, adjoining golf course. Property also has an additional separate self contained very compact but functional chalet with double bed, kitchen, en suite for when friends visit. We normally use the house for our private family holiday use. We quickly realised that moving "stuff" not to mention three kids from our family home to our holiday home was hard work and simply decided to fit it out with the everday requirements of an active young family. The kids still ask "are we there yet" but within five minutes of our arrival are either on the beach with their fishing nets, their body boards or soccer ball or escaping to the dunes or the playground.


More about us

  1. Interested in London Olympics or any children friendly location,either sunny and warm or would consider ski location.In our forties, me only just, we work in dentistry and banking. Anne works too hard and lives for holidays. I coach kids soccer and enjoy the garden. We both keep meaning to play more golf but will probably wait until our seventies ! We have three boys 13,11,8. They are good kids and will respect your property. Non smokers we enjoy outdoor activities and hope to visit many of the local attractions. As our property in Ballyheigue is a vacation home, we are very flexible on term and dates of your visit and look forward to hearing from you. We have an open mind on destinations ,first choice would consider Italy for a week from 22nd June 09,other dates etc USA ,Canada ,Spain ,France. Ideally we would seek to include a car exchange. Safe sandy seaside or pool location a bonus. Would also consider novice ski resort area. Tempted by London Olympics 2012 John

Where is it?


The original property was once the huntsman's cottage adjoining Ballyheigue Castle. The castle grounds are now a scenic nine hole golf course. The now dormer cottage has been extensively renovated in an old style. The house is five minutes walk to Ballyheigue village with hotel, shops, pubs, kids playground and miles of long safe sandy beach /sand dunes. It is ten miles to Tralee's various indoor and outdoor attractions. The famous Lakes of Killarney, Ring Of Kerry, Castlegregory, Dingle, Kenmare, Castleisland's Cragg Caves are all within one hour's drive. The immediate local area is popular with hill walkers, fishermen and beach lovers. Kerry has the most spectacular scenery in Ireland,a mecca for Sailers, Mountain walkers/climbers,Surfers as well as those in search of fun, music and good company.Lots to interest lovers of culture and history on the Sleigh Head,Blasket Islands centre etc. We have only had one home exchange family to date and they seemed to enjoy the stories and the people they met every bit as much as the places they visited.
