This week sees the release of a new Forgotten Houses holiday home in the beautiful land of the Ring of Kerry, a circular 111 mile tourist route in County Kerry, Ireland.
This popular destination is home to spectacular and rugged scenery and a plethora of things to see such as the national park, many churches, a manor house, historic castles and lakes.
Near to our new house, Dereenaraig, is Staigue Stone Fort, a striking ruined stone ringfort (a circular fortified settlement that was built during the Iron age) with walls up to five and a half metres high and over twenty five metres in diameter. The villages of Whitestrand and Castlecove lie to the south of the house and have beautiful unspoilt beaches,fishing spots and great coastal walks.
The house itself is a traditional whitewashed farmhouse nestled in beautiful countryside, it provides a perfect base for a holiday to the Ring of Kerry, whether for a walking holiday, a driving holiday or just somewhere to get away from it all and relax. Active families will also love kayaking around Kenmare Bay or rock-pooling along the beautiful Iveragh Peninsula and there is up to an acre of wild garden to roam around. Inside the house is traditionally decorated with a wood burning stove in the original fireplace, a classic kitchen and countryside feel to its three bedrooms as well as views over the countryside to the mountains.
Dereenaraig can be reached from Cork airport, which is just over 2 hours drive, or from Kerry aiport, which is just over and hour and a half. Alternatively you can take the car ferry from the UK to Rosslare. For more information visit the house page here.
