John and Helen Arthur’s pleasing Edwardian house on the edge of Kenmare is in a beautiful setting overlooking the harbour, with fine garden and mountain views at the rear.
The location - alongside Reenagross Woodland Park, yet just a few minutes’ walk from of the town - is perfect for anyone who prefers a restful base yet also likes to be able to browse the shops, dine out and enjoy music in the pubs, without taking the car.
The large entrance hall has a welcoming open fire and there is an elegant guest sitting room leading off it, with views towards the Beara Peninsula - all setting the tone for a house that is spacious and comfortably furnished throughout and would make a good base for exploring the Ring of Kerry and other attractions of South Kerry.
Bedrooms all have a pleasing outlook and are furnished with a mixture of antique and good quality old-style furniture, plus orthopaedic beds, TV, phone and tea/coffee facilities. Practical, smartly-finished bathrooms have powerful over-bath showers and built-in hair dryers.
The standard of housekeeping is high - and delicious breakfasts are served in a sunny dining room overlooking the garden.
