Our 5-star vacation rental is located directly on the lakeshore of the world-famous Lakes of Killarney and is now available for unforgettable luxury holidays. There are many private paths and walks on the 100 acres estate, and the remaining land is an active farm.

The atmospheric Library and elegant Drawing Room are the classic country house retreats with antique books, a large oak desk, armchairs, a sofa and a satellite TV. The Dining Room with stunning views features an expandable dining table for 18 guests; the room works well for lunch parties and long convivial dinners with gilt pelmets and blue painted walls.
The Kitchen/Breakfast Room successfully combines the traditional morning room with a generous modern kitchen with granite worktops and an impressive central island.

The expansive hall dominated by a vast Golden Oak sideboard mounted with a stag's head is a remarkable feature. The Middle hall has a large and ornate dark wood staircase to the first floor, lit by two large Venetian windows, reflected in large gilt mirrors, a snooker table a Bechstein baby grand piano.
