Sean

2-bedroom cottage in Kenmare

Stay in County Kerry

The Sean apartment is a charming detached cottage on Anne's farm, one of three beautiful apartments on the former stable grounds of an active dairy farm. The apartments combine charming traditional style with modern conveniences and thoughtful details.

One enters the cottage from the common courtyard. The ground floor is an open floor plan with a large sitting room offering comfortable cloth couches, an old stone wall, a TV with CNN, and a fireplace. The attached, spacious kitchen area has all that one could need to cook a delightful Irish meal, including a dishwasher, 4-burner stove, oven, and microwave. Upstairs are the two charming bedrooms that share a bathroom complete with a Jacuzzi bathtub and power shower.

Each cottage has its own private patio and garden area with seating so you can enjoy eating outside. The common front garden includes a yard and play area for children, along with a hen house, where guests can collect fresh eggs in the morning. Farm operations are separate from the guest quarters, but the farm's friendly hosts, Anne and Patrick, are willing to show guests their dairy operations on request. Their warm hospitality adds much to the experience of staying on the farm.

Important: Please note that the Sean cannot fit 3 adults but instead 2 adults and one child due to the bedroom situation.

The three cottages, with a total of eight bedrooms, are perfect for a large group wanting to explore the jewels of Southern Ireland together.

Kenmare, Ireland - County Kerry, Home of Sean

Tucked into the scenic southwest corner of Ireland, Kenmare is a welcoming and convenient home base. The name Kenmare means ‘little nest’ in Gaelic, which perfectly describes the atmosphere of this charming town. The perfect departure point for the Ring of Kerry and Killarney National Park, Kenmare also puts the Beara and Dingle Peninsulas within reach. Home to the19th century Holy Cross Church and one of the most impressive ancient stone circles in the region, Kenmare has a rich history. Nearby Molly Gallivan’s Cottage and Traditional Farm is a 200-year-old cottage that shows how the people of Kenmare lived before modern technology.

Take a cruise in Kenmare Bay or try local horseback riding. Explore the weekly outdoor market or take in live traditional music in a cozy local pub. Kenmare is known for its good eats and great golf courses. Lined with colorful houses and charming shops, Kenmare is a true Irish village with all of the amenities one could need and easy access to the sea.

Reviews

Here's what our guests have to say

Mark and Holly Walla

★★★★★

The apartment was very comfortable. Our host, Anne, at Dorie farms was wonderful. She baked us a cake and scones and had us over for Irish coffee on our last night. She also provided us with good information. It was like staying at a friend's house.

John McKeever

★★★★★

It was nice and cozy. Very relaxing after long day trips. Sean was perfect for us. Being on a working dairy farm was a plus. Felt like being one of the locals. Not touristy!

Hugh Duguid

★★★★★

The lodgings at the Sean house were the best we've experienced on our three UnTour trips. We can't sing the praises of our landlady, Anne, enough. She made our stay more enjoyable than we expected; we left there good friends.
