Our house is located midway between Cork and Killarney (centres of both are approx 40 minutes away) The town of Kenmare is also around 40 minutes away. Train station (to Killarney and Dublin) is about 20 minutes away. We are 3 miles west of Macroom (a busy market town with a market, supermarkets, cinema, theatre, cafes, shops, library) on the outskirts of the village of Clondrohid.
The house and large garden are surrounded by farmland with views across to the mountains that form the Cork/Kerry border. The village shop/post office and two pubs are within 10 minutes walk.
The house is nearly 300 years old and full of character. The hot water in the summer is from Solar panels. A wood burning stove, is in place for cosy evenings, in the sitting room.
Cooking on the wood burning stove is possible ur for summer months an electric hob and oven are also available.
If you'd like to bring children that's no problem. We have two ten year old boys and the garden is designed to keep them entertained.
The cat needs love and company, basically a lap 24/7 would suit him nicely. Please note that the cat likes to hunt, a lot!, *rabbits, birds, shrews etc.) and likes to show off his conquests to us humans, usually at the foot of the stairs.......
The gardens is about 1 3/4 acres of mature trees, grass area and small stream and pond. You can walk from the house to clondrohid village without needing to go on the road.
We just ask you to look after the house as if it were your own and relax and enjoy your time here.
Please Note that we do not have a television. We do have a good broadband, which we use to stream "tv", this is available throughout house and parts of the garden.
