Stunning cottage and gardens in one of Ireland’s most famous beauty spots – take a look inside


A beautiful cottage in the middle of the stunning Co Kerry countryside was lovingly restored over a period of a quarter of a century.

Derreenrickard Cottage, Tahilla, Sneem, Kenmare, Co. Kerry was a derelict property when it was purchased by the current owners in 1993.

They spent decades transforming it into a stunning home, complete with beautiful gardens with entwining paths for talking a peaceful stroll.


The garden was designed to achieve a succession of seasonal colour in the planting.

The key features in the house include a stone entrance hall, a guest shower room, a study with a gas fire, large living room with beams, an open stone fire and a bay window.

There are beautiful views of Kenmare Bay from the bay windows, as well as from the kitchen and dining area.

There are also great views from both upstairs bedrooms.

There is a patio which can be enjoyed all day in the summer. The front of the house and garden is south facing so it is perfect for making the most of the sunlight.

Property agent said: “Derreenrickard Cottage is a charming, stone fronted residence on some 7.68ha(19acres) of the most wonderful gardens in Kerry. Stunning views of Kenmare Bay and Knockatee Mountains are enjoyed from the house and the magical gardens. Located on the stunning Ring of Kerry.”

The Ring of Kerry is one of the most popular attractions in Ireland for people who want to experience the country in all its beauty. Find out more about the Ring of Kerry.
