You are hardly aware of it but you are on an island with the Atlantic lapping your big garden and the mountains of Kerry forming part of your view; if you are not inspired by this landscape then you have no soul.
Wander down to the water to picnic on benches; sit out on the terrace on clear nights under starry skies. Wild swimmers will be happy here with their own access to the ocean. Inside there’s an open fireplace and shaggy pile rugs to keep you warm and cosy, a sun room with wraparound windows and an open-plan kitchen for sociable meals.
Stretch your legs on a two-hour walk along the Ring of Kerry to colourful Sneem for sea kayaking, a sculpture trail, fairy trails and plenty of pubs and places to eat. Visit pink coral beach (20 minutes’ drive)- a geological wonder and one of only two in the country.
