Westcove House, The Stables and Garden Cottage

Manor House in Ireland, Munster - South
0/5 ( 0 Reviews)

Description

:An attractive, early Georgian country house in a magnificent setting overlooking the Kenmare Estuary off the southern tip of the beautiful "Ring of Kerry" - generally considered to be the most scenic drive in Ireland.
The house sleeps ten comfortably - two doubles, two twins, two adjoining single bedrooms and five bath/shower rooms. Accommodation for a further eleven is available in 'The Stables' or for a further 5 in 'Garden Cottage'.
The terrace to the front of the house is stone-clad and overlooks the harbour and Kenmare Estuary. It has a built-in barbecue and comfortable garden furniture. A rowing boat is available at tenant's own risk.
A Games Room and Studio, located in The Stables building but approachable from the outside, and a Sauna area with exercise space, shower and loo - are facilities shared by all the properties
The huge Games Room is very well equipped with table tennis, table football, darts and other games. It also converts well into a small meeting/party room as it has 30 stacking chairs. Irish live music/dancing evenings can be arranged for special celebrations - very popular with all ages! Adjoining is a large, well lit, north facing studio with a small snooker/pool table which can be folded away when space is needed by art groups. Westcove House also has Wi-Fi internet access.

Daily cleaning, gas and electricity is included in the rental, but cooking, food shopping and extra housekeeping will be tailored to individual requirements. We will provide options on request and will be happy to discuss these with our guests. An estimate of likely costs will be given but a detailed invoice for catering etc will be payable on departure.

UK airports and Europe. Shannon Airport is a good 3¼ hours drive away.

below are the available options for sea travel:-
Stena line (www.stenaline.co.uk) offer 2 daily, 3 1/2 hour crossings and - summer only
- 2 daily, 1 3/4 hour, high-speed return sailings from Fishguard to Rosslare. They also
run crossings from Holyhead to Dublin and to Dun Loaghaire. Irish Ferries
(www.irishferries.com) operate twice daily crossings from Pembroke to Rosslare - this
takes 4 hours, but the driving time from London is 1/2 an hour shorter than to Fishguard
and the cabins are much more comfortable!. In addition, they sail regularly from Holyhead
to Dublin. Brittany Ferries (www.brittanyferries.co.uk) operate a weekly 13-15
hour crossing from Roscoff, in northern France, to Cork.
BY CAR: The drive to Westcove House takes 2¼ hours from Cork, 4½ to 5½ hours from
Rosslare harbour, 4½ hours from Dublin and 3½ hours from Shannon airport.

of Killarney, where you turn left to Kenmare. In Kenmare (a good place to stop for
provisions is Supervalu Supermarket), follow the signs to Sneem and Waterville.
Ten miles after going through Sneem, you reach the small village of Castlecove. Continue
towards Waterville for about one mile, then, after passing some derelict buildings on
your left, take the second turning left at a small crossroads.
After 100 yards, bear right and the entrance toWestcove House is directly in front of you.
Proceed over the cattle grid, with a stone wall on either side, and park by the grass circle.
