Stunning cottage and gardens in one of Ireland’s most famous beauty spots put up for sale

A beautiful cottage in the middle of the stunning Co Kerry countryside has been put on the market for €775,000.

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

They spent the last quarter of a century 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 Daft.ie 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.”
