Our home

Our cottage, Babbling Brook, is set on just over half an acre of land and offers contemporary living accommodation in the heart of Kerry countryside. It is spread across one level and rooms are light and spacious. The cottage is equipped with all modern facilities and has wood and tiled floors throughout.

It features a large, open-style modern kitchen/diner with an opening into a sun-room with a small snooker table; patio doors lead from the sun-room onto a patio with garden table and chairs. There is a comfy lounge with three sofas (including a sofa-bed for a 7th guest to use if required), open fire, satellite TV, DVD and video player.

The two double bedrooms have en suite facilities, and the twin bedroom is adjacent to the family bathroom.

Who we are

  1. We are Danny & Ali. Our cottage in beautiful Caragh Lake is very special to us; it is our second home and we use it as much as our busy London lives allow! We like to share it with our friends and family too as it is a lovely retreat for us all. County Kerry is where Danny's family originates from and has a special place in his heart.

    Our travelling party is made up of our closest family members, young adults and older adults, who are very keen to be a part of this exchange adventure! This is our first experience of home exchange and we look forward to making contact with fellow home exchangers from different parts of the world, and discovering more about other countries, cultures, etc. We are open-minded about possible destinations to visit and are very excited about where this experience might lead us...

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Babbling Brook is situated in the picturesque area of Caragh Lake on the fringe of the Ring of Kerry. Caragh Lake is a serene, rural spot, with captivating mountain and lake views. These views can be accessed close to our cottage on the opposite side of the road. This Lakeland setting is a perfect place to relax and get away from it all. It is an ideal location for exploring the extensive scenery of Kerry including the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle and Beara peninsulas, and the rugged Gap of Dunloe. Shops, banks, award winning restaurants and welcoming pubs with live, traditional Irish music are available in Killorglin - home to the Puck Fair festival - and also Glenbeigh village, both less than 4 miles away. There are two 'unspoilt' sandy beaches less than 10 minutes' drive from the cottage. This is a perfect location for nearby golfing, fishing, water sports, walking and other outdoor activities.

Babbling Brook is 30 minutes' drive from Killarney, a pretty, bustling tourist town and home to the beautiful National Park. The nearest airport is Kerry (Farranfore) - max 30 minutes' drive from the cottage. Cork airport and Cork ferry are both approx 1hr 30 minutes' drive.
