Our home

Our charming cottage is 300 years old and is right in the heart of Kenmare Town. It is simply decorated but is very .comfortable. 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 but 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. It's a great place to base yourself if you want to drive the Ring of Kerry and visit the Wild Atlantic Way. And a visit to the famous Derrynane Beach is a wonderful day trip.
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.
Amazing pubs and restaurants within minutes walk. Stone circle. Market. Supermarkets. Gallery.Antiques.

Who we are

  1. Mark and I live in New Zealand although originally from Ireland and England. We travel back to Europe often and now our two children are studying in Edinburgh and Montreal respectively, so we have even more excuses to spend time in the Northern Hemisphere.
    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. Mark is a Solar Electrician/ Engineer and loves the idea of saving the planet 'one roof at a time'. We run a guest lodge in Wanaka in New Zealand (WanakaSuites) and try to travel in May and June when it is our quiet time. Our swaps do not have to be simultaneous so you are most welcome to use our lovely cottage during July and August time if that suits you better.

  3. We love the diversity of Europe and relish the different cultures and especially the food!

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Stone Cottage is located in the heart of Kenmare town. Wonderful traditional Irish musicians playing most evenings 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.
