Seal Rock Cottage
Enjoy a relaxing escape at Seal Rock Cottage, a stylish boutique retreat in a breathtaking waterfront position on the Wild Atlantic Way, in County Kerry.
Wake up in this spacious two-bedroom stone cottage, and follow the stream down through the one-acre landscaped garden for a swim from the private beach and breakfast on the dock. Explore the local area - rich in history and natural wonders - or simply relax at Seal Rock Cottage, watching the light dance on the mountains across the water of Kenmare Bay and spotting seals and sea otters playing just yards from you.
In the evenings, sink into the comfort of Seal Rock Cottage’s chic, contemporary interior - designed as a Celtic take on Scandinavian cool, with every modern convenience but a wonderfully cosy sense of hygge - or, rather, as this is rural Ireland, “teolaí”.
The Best of The West of Ireland
You will find Seal Rock Cottage in a secluded spot on Rossmore Island; but it is connected to the Ring of Kerry by an ancient stone bridge and is just minutes from the vibrant town of Kenmare, renowned for its gourmet food, pubs and live music.
Seal Rock is ideally placed for you to explore this magical part of South-West Ireland. Along the world-famous Ring Of Kerry route, you will find Killarney National Park, the Gap of Dunloe, Kerry Woolen Mills, Daniel O’Connell’s home on Derrynane Strand, and much more. The best of Cork is on the doorstep too - the majesty of Bantry Bay; the gardens of Garnish Island; the literary craíc at McCarthy’s Bar; and the mysteries of Gougane Barra.
Looking to the Atlantic Ocean, you could sail to the Skelligs to discover your inner Jedi; charter a fishing boat to catch sea trout and bass; or take to the water in a sea kayak. Golfers have more than half a dozen nearby courses of great repute to choose from; while those who prefer their good walk “unspoiled” can hike the Kerry Way, joining the path a mile from the house.
With good connections to major airports and ferry terminals, Seal Rock Cottage is out of the way but easy to reach. And once there, your holiday can be as action-packed or slow-paced as you like.
