Kerry Castle, Rosscahill, Ireland
Kerry Castle is an attractive mid Georgian house situated just off the Ring of Kerry, five miles west of Killarney. Set in forty acres of woodland overlooking the River Laune, it is ideally placed for exploring the many attractions of Kerry.
The original building on the site was a short castle, so called because it was only two stories high, built by Captain O'Sullivan in 1641 and attacked by Cromwell's forces in 1654, the west wall being demolished. In about 1760 the present house was built, the remaining three walls of the castle forming the hallway. The interior was altered in 1830 and the chimneypieces and plasterwork date from this time.
Totally refurbished in recent years it is now available for holiday rentals. It offers four large double bedrooms, each with king-size beds convertible to twin (two single beds) and en suite bathroom.
The Courtyard Cottages were converted from the 18th ct stone courtyard buildings. They have been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. All the bedrooms have Egyptian Cotton bed linen and can be kingsize double or twin bedded and all have en suite bathrooms. All the cottages have fully equipped kitchens with double ovens, microwaves and dishwashers and utility rooms with washing machines. A gas clothes drier is shared by the cottages.The sitting rooms are equipped with flat screen satellite televisions, DVD and CD players and an open fire. Each cottage has a patio with teak garden furniture and barbecue. All the cottages have wireless internet access. Laune Cottage, the largest of the four cottages is south facing and has four ensuite bedrooms, one of them on the ground floor. It has a very large kitchen and drawing room with double doors that fold back to create a large entertainment area. Flesk has as three en suite bedrooms and a double aspect sitting room facing south and west and a spacious kitchen.
