Our home

We offer a newly built (2007) cozy village house with remarkable views of the stunning natural surroundings. We love the kitchen area with it's country cooker, big dining table and sofas for relaxing. Patio Doors lead out to garden. In the mornings when the sun hits the hills you forget all about the newspapers. In the evening you salute the setting sun with a glass of wine over dinner.
The Lounge/TV room is not used very much but with the open fire burning on winter nights it is a very relaxing place to be.
The upstairs is carpeted with three rooms - one master bedroom with ensuite (shower) - one double room (no ensuite)- and one kids room with bunk beds used by our two children. There is also a bathroom with bath and shower.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The village of Allihies is one of the secrets of the south west of Ireland. It has escaped the tour buses and streams of cars seen on the ring of Kerry and other destinations of natural beauty. Because of this it has retained it's personality as a hard working village serving a farming and fishing community. The village is on the western tip of the Beara peninsula. It is 16km from the larger fishing port of Castletownbere. Allihies has one shop, 3 pubs, a church and playground. Ballydonegan Beach is about a 15min walk, however the walk back may take longer because it is up-hill and past the 3 Pubs.
Although there are local activities such as fishing. scuba diving and horse riding, most people are attracted to the area for the excellent hiking and hill walking taking in some of the best scenery the south west of Ireland has to offer. Routes range from easy to medium.
