Holiday Rental House -

Caherdaniel, County Kerry
'The Stables' is a charming stone building set in the grounds of the larger Westcove House (see separate listing) but offering plenty of privacy for its guests. Lovingly restored and converted in the 1960s, it has been updated over the years, has all modern conveniences and sleeps up to 11 people. For larger groups of people is an ideal annex to Westcove House – especially for younger guests. The airy open plan kitchen/dining area is fully equipped and is spacious enough for everyone to come together…but there are also enough private spots if you need some quiet time and of course internet access. The cosy sitting-room has an open fire & comfortable bedrooms will help ensure a peaceful night's sleep. The bedrooms upstairs have lovely sea views over Westcove Harbour & Kenmare estuary.
