Castlecove, Killarney, Co Kerry
Dereenaraig is a self catering holiday home in the stunning Ring of Kerry at Castlecove. The house can sleep up to 6 people and is an ideal retreat for a family. We are close to attractions and just a short drive from Killarney. Outside the front of the house is a river and livestock may be around at any time so please be aware if you bring your dogs.
About DereenaraigThe house is centuries old and is surrounded by fields and hills. Those who want a break from the hustle and bustle of city living will find Dereenaraig the perfect base.
The original dresser still stands in the kitchen and our lovely neighbours at ‘Stones Throw’ provide guests with a beautiful welcome basket brimming with local produce.
A selection of seasonal vegetables, handmade jams and herbs will be waiting on your arrival. A wood-burner warms the big, old fashioned dining room and there’s a comfortable sitting room stocked with books and DVDs for rainy days.
Upstairs, two bright and airy double rooms have antique beds, while there’s a cosy twin room for kids. Back downstairs, there are a couple of simple bathrooms.
The cottage stands within an acre of wild garden where energetic little ones can roam free. Active families will also love kayaking around Kenmare Bay or rock-pooling along the beautiful Iveragh Peninsula.
