The ground floor essentially comprises two impressive reception rooms, with a stairwell dividing.

Immediately off the hallway is a finely proportioned drawing room. Alabaster panel wainscoting and panelled walls augment the single pillared 19th century Irish marble fireplace.
Large sash windows, framed with bifold shutters, face the sea with unimpeded views across the whimsical weather of Dublin Bay.

Restrained contemporary furnishings, rugs thrown on herringbone parquet floors, a mix of classic antique and contemporary pieces.

The house enjoys an exceptional private collection of Irish art, beautifully hung across all the rooms.

The three bay windows of the south are dedicated to an imposing dining area.

Across one end, moulded panelled presses conceal a full height kitchen including fridge, wine storage and surprisingly, behind closed doors, a walk-in pantry, complete with double oven, a sink and Quooker tap for instant boiling water.

For informal breakfasts, there is a Irish marble island breakfast bar, with a ceramic hob, and an integrated marble sideboard together with a second sink.

There is easy access to the sheltered garden from the end bay via a sweeping stairway, to the rear terrace below – a totally private suntrap, perfect for barbecues and sundowners.

Glazed doors on this level substitute the original, promoting daylight throughout the interior and aligning to reveal unexpected glimpses of the bay.

Out & About

 

 

The Locality

 

 

Monkstown village, a short stroll away, is where you will find a variety of boutique shops, gastro-pubs, excellent restaurants and indeed churches. Both Blackrock and Dun Laoghaire are less than 2km away and have multiple outlets.

Directly opposite the house, is a footbridge across the railway to the popular Seapoint beach and promenade, should you fancy an early morning dip. High tide is best.

Salthill Station for DART trains is a stone’s throw from the house. Trains run along the coast between Greystones (about 30k to the South) and Howth (on the opposite side of the Bay) at approximately 15 minute intervals, making it very convenient to get into the heart of the city in about 20 minutes. It carries roughly 20 million passengers a year.

Dun Laoghaire
Originally Dunleary, the town was renamed Kingstown in honour of King George IV’s 1821 visit, and 100 years later reverted the original Irish form Dun Laoghaire.

Ireland’s very first railway (costing £200,000) and covering the five and a half miles from Dublin to Kingstown was opened in 1834.

In the 19th century sailing Dublin Bay was a treacherous prospect, with access to Dublin Port tide dependant. A veritable graveyard of over 600 ships caught in storms, lie at the bottom of the bay. The remedy settled on in the early 19th century led to the construction of the two granite piers, clearly visible from the house.

Completed in in 1859, and now essentially a playground for water sports, it had taken 42 years to construct the harbour.

There are five Yachting clubs based in Dun Laoghaire Harbour. The 820-berth marina, a more recent development, is the largest in the country.

You can join a paved walkway below the house which follows the railway connecting Dun Laoghaire and Killiney to the south. A 3.5K section of this utilises “The Metals”, originally a truck railroad, with cast iron rails, designed to bring horse-drawn trucks laden with granite from the quarry in Dalkey for the construction of the Harbour at Dún Laoghaire. Up to 250 horses and 250 drivers were employed to transport the 8 tonne loads.

Video Link to Tracks and Trails Walk

 

The Purty Kitchen gastro-pub, a short stroll along the seafront, is Dun Laoghaire’s oldest surviving premises. Originally a coaching inn and at the centre of the initial settlement, it was constructed largely of clay and straw with a thatched roof and called Old Dunleary Inn. Captain Bligh (earlier of HMS Bounty fame) apparently stayed here in 1800, was not a fan of the harbour “It has nothing to recommend it, being ill adapted for its purpose”

The Martello Tower at the end of the beach below the house, is one of some 50 built by the British in Ireland during the early 1800’s, mostly on the East coast, as an early warning against an expected invasion by Napoleon. The one at Sandycove at the far side of Dun Laoghaire was the starting point of the James Joyce novel Ulysses, and now serves as a museum to the writer.

How to get there – A car may be useful, but certainly not essential.

Trains: Salthill DART station is about 2oo metres from the house, with trains running approximately every 15 minutes. Please click here to download a rail map.

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Belfast or Shannon airports.
Dublin Airport – about 35 mins from the house
Note that there is an Aircoach to and from Dublin Airport that passes very close to the house.
Belfast Airport – approx 2 and half hours from house.
Shannon Airport – approx 2 and half hours from house.

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Dublin City Port / Holyhead has a fast crossing and is just over half an hour from the house
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is also approx 2 and half hours from the house.

The Way We Were…

Book This Home

County Down

AS SEEN ON BBC 1 television Counytryfile on Sunday 24th April 2022…
On a private island off the western shore of the singular Strangford Lough, is an enchanting 250-year-old cottage. A historical home of unique character where generations of families have escaped.
Secluded, and with stunning views and bird-life; direct access to the lough and a tennis court, it’s hard to believe you’re just 45 minutes from Belfast.

Heritage with a good dollop of fun

The eponymous Turtle family lovingly restored this cottage in 1935 as a summer retreat, and sensitive extensions over the years have retained many original features, including deep-set window sills, quarry-tiled floors and Belfast sinks – quirks and curiosities have been deliberately left unchanged.


The rambling layout of interconnecting rooms divides naturally into two wings, and is ideally suited to a couple of families holidaying together or multi-generational (3G) families.

The principal entrance is through the original kitchen. Idiosyncratic lemon panelling and hand-built furniture are typical to the cottage, as is the sizable Victorian hand pump, once the water supply.

The main living room has an eclectic collection of sofas with a wood burning stove as the focus.

There is also a vintage piano for sing-songs, and a gramophone with a selection of old 78 rpm records to explore.

Here a wonderful bay-window dining area with a panoramic view of the lough extends southwards.

A short hallway connects to the second sitting room, carpeted, with an enameled stove, and its own cushioned bay window.

Between the two, is a family bathroom, and opposite, a sunny porch-conservatory opening onto the South-facing lawn.

Bedrooms

There is a double bedroom and a triple in both wings, with some reached through the adjoining bedroom, and two having  direct access to the garden.

Again, with a nod to the past, the conspicuous flower pattern on the curtains in one room, is an exact copy of one used to decorate some of the first-class cabins on Titanic.

The black cooking range used by a series of evacuee families during the second World War, is still to be found in “The Kitchen Bedroom”.

Beyond the last bedroom in the West wing, is a large, rustic, pine-paneled bathroom that also serves as a laundry room. It can also be reached directly from the garden.

Its vintage, cast-iron shower/bath has been adapted for modern use with an electric shower.

Outside

The lawn gently slopes to a rocky shore where there is access to a slip and a concrete jetty for launching. In addition, you may utilize a second slip for trailer launching via the lane that runs down the side of the house  – so if it floats, bring it!

In addition to the shoreline, there are amazing walks through woods (award-winning arboretum) and some breathtaking birdlife.
There is also an all-weather tennis court on the property.

Out & About

The lough is home to a multitude of yacht clubs – the local one around the corner caters for water sports – canoes, paddle boards, etc, – better still, bring your own water toys…

There’s so much to see and do, we just can’t list them all, so here are some of our favourites…

The Locality

Mahee is a small privately owned island on Strangford Lough, the last in a chain linked by road causeways to the mainland. The nearest neighbours are a couple of fields away – mostly with woods between properties – but the nearest sizeable town is Comber, on the mainland 25 minutes away.

This is an island steeped in history, starting with the ruins of Mahee Castle (1570) and Nendrum, a 5th century monastery at one end of the island with its own small museum, and Europe’s oldest known tidal-mill site from the 7th century.

More recently the island became home in the 17th century to the industrious immigrant Andrews family from Scotland, who subsequently achieved diverse acclaim, including the design of the Titanic.

You may be interested in a recently published book curated by the daughter of the eponymous Helen Turtle – Midnight Again – a collection of poignant letters written to her mother and sister in America before and during the war when she lived here with her young children.

Strangford Lough is one of the most richly bio-diverse regions in Europe, with over 2,000 marine species spread across 150 km2. It is the largest sea inlet in the British Isles, and boasts at least seventy islands and multiple drumlin islets.

The narrows are also subject to a highly energetic tidal race. With water moving backwards and forwards at up to 15kph twice a day the channel has become a test-bed for experimental power generation, most lately by a Swedish company who are currently trialing their fascinating “sea kite” technology.

For a bird’s eye view over the lough, the tower at the top of Scrabo Hill, 20 minutes north, is one of Northern Ireland’s best-known landmarks and the views from the platform at the top of the 122 steps are spectacular.

Migrating Brent Geese in their thousands arrive from Arctic Canada to Strangford Lough from October through the winter months to eat the lough’s eelgrass before the long journey back to Arctic Canada to breed. It is a spectacular sight and a great venue to see this is WWT Castle Espie Wetland Centre, 5 miles from the Cottage and one of the venues for BBC Springwatch, Autumnwatch and Winterwatch 2021/2022.

From the Strangford village at the bottom of the lough, there is an entertaining ferry – every 30 minutes – across the narrows to Portaferry on the Ards Peninsula, where there is a small Aquarium (Exploris ) that is popular, and an important lifeboat station.

Shellfish is the name of the game around these parts, with pot fishing, mainly for prawns and crabs and licensed shellfish farming within the lough, so it’s not surprising that you will come across some of the finest seafood restaurants in Ireland. For divine Fish and Chips, make a wee journey to the pier at Ardglass farther down the coast…

Castle Ward is an 820-acre walled demesne owned by the National Trust on the edge of Strangford with terrific sheltered woodlands and trails, great for walking, running, cycling. The historic farmyard was the location of Winterfell where the deadly Game of Thrones® series is set in motion.

If you’re fond of the odd G&T you must be sure to try some of the home-grown local varieties that have sprung up in recent years. The Echlinville Estate lists Jawbox amongst their brands, and invite you to enjoy a tour of their distillery, or you may prefer to try Shortcross from the 500-acre Rademon estate.

The Titanic, which has strong links to the nearby town of Comber, has its own “Comber Titanic Audio Trail” which guides you to special places of interest throughout Comber that relate to the Titanic story. If you are going to Belfast – don’t miss a visit to the renowned Titanic Belfast Experience.

How to get there – Car advised…

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Belfast or Shannon airports.
Dublin Airport – is about 2 hours from the cottage.
Belfast Airports – Belfast International is just over an hour from the cottage & George Best’s City Airport, Belfast, is 35 minutes away.

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Ferries from Belfast, about an hour away, run to Liverpool and Scotland
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is about two hours from the cottage
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is about 4 hours from the cottage.

Book this home

Ardgroom Co. Cork

 

A very special, private home set above the sheltered shores of Ardgroom harbour, Pipers Cottage is surrounded by its own 11 acres of pasture and woodland with its own shoreline and private beach.

But more than that, it’s glorious secluded location and stunning private views makes Pipers the perfect spot to simply unwind and enjoy and explore the extraordinary natural power and beauty that is here in Beara.

 

A Musical Rest..

The house is built within the grounds of the 19th century home of Canon Goodman, the ruins of which provide a magical backdrop to views over Ardgroom harbour towards the Kerry and Caha mountains.

Glorious mature stands of beech, oak and plane trees line the drive and stand proudly in the surrounding meadows. We will tell you later of the great and good Canon, but first to the home, Pipers.

To set the scene, here are just some of the views from the house, sunporch and garden: private, intimate, glorious, unchanged and special.

Pipers is a kilometre and a half from the village of Ardgroom with its excellent shop, cafe and pub (Village Inn).

The home provides modern and comfortable accommodation for up to four in two bedrooms, one a double and the other with twin beds.

The south-facing terrace overlooking the harbour is well sheltered and is an absolute sun trap. A glorious spot to spend the day with the cows grazing on the green hills beyond and wonderful and often rarely seen seabirds and wildlife hunting in the waters below (Gannets, Terns, Guillemots, Sandpipers, Great Northern Divers, Herons, Sea Otters and Hares to name but a few).

The terrace entrance leads into the open plan living area through a convenient and spacious porch.

The living area comfortably accommodates six around a Scandinavian wood burning stove that combines with central heating to ensure maximum snugness on those very occasional dampish days !

Leading from the dining area is a fully equipped modern kitchen. Bright, a delight to use and spacious with views out into the surrounding gardens.

The back door into the house leads from the kitchen providing easy and direct access for car loading and unloading. A well-equipped laundry is also provided next to the kitchen

Bedrooms

The stairs to the bedrooms lead from the living area to a landing above with the master bedroom to the right and the second bedroom to the left.

The master bedroom is spacious and cosey. Three windows offer lovely views across the harbour to the hills and mountains beyond.
The sky light above the bed ensures that the room is always well and softly lit. And on the odd blowy night allows you to really hear the wind. Just magic.

The second bedroom consists of two single beds.

The bright and airy bathroom at the top of the stairs provides a power shower with lashings of hot water. Compact, spotless, with all that you need.

 

Pipers was built in 1900 but has been sensitively modernised while remaining true to its proud Beara roots. The house is full of lovely touches which reach back and connect you to the years gone by.

Beara has many fine resident artists and potters. Their work is exhibited in Kenmare, Castletown and Bantry or better still, follow the booklet “Beara Art Trail” and you can visit them in their own studios. Well worth doing, as they are close by.

So now to Canon Goodman; who was truly well named.
Pipers is situated in the grounds of a former rectory that once was his home.

Born in Dingle in 1828 he spent a life-time devoted to the well-being of Ireland and all its people. A fluent Irish speaker from childhood his life was one of service, education and music. Indeed he became renowned for his playing of the Uileann pipes.

His unique collection of over 2000 traditional Irish melodies for the pipe in volumes known as ‘The tunes of the Munster Pipers’ are now housed in the library of Trinity College, Dublin.

It was while in Ardgroom that the Canon commenced this collection.
And so it is that Pipers Cottage came to be named in memory of a very remarkable and good man.
His funeral in January 1896 was of “enormous proportions” and bore testimony to his life of devotion to Ireland, its people and music. “His generosity to the poor left him without wealth at the end. Yet he died rich, for money could not buy the esteem and respect of his countrymen which were without limit or reserve.”

Reflect on this exemplary life, listen to the message in the Piper’s call as you sit by his once fine home and take in, as he surely often did himself, the unspoilt beauty and peace of Ardgroom harbour with Collorus and the Caha mountains beyond.
It has changed little in 200 years and remains an inspiration.

The fine old stone buildings around the Canon’s former home to-day form a beautiful sheltered quadrangle ideal for outside dining. A barbeque is of course provided.

 

Restrictions

Smoking – No, sorry!
Parties – The owners regret Stag, Hen, Wedding or 21st parties are not admissible.
Children – The property is not suitable for children under the age of 12.
Pets – No, sorry!

 

Pipers Cottage is a very special place. And it continues to reach out and touches all those who have had the good fortune to track it down and stay in this lovely place on this beautiful peninsula.

If you would be so good.

 Piper’s Cottage is new to Unique Irish Homes Summer 2021. If you visit and feel the need; let us know how it went…

The Cottage is deeply appreciated by past guests…

 

“The place is very special. The cottage the best bolthole ever. We could not have asked for more. And the views…………!!!” 

(Sept 2017, Neil and Alan, Lancashire UK.)

What a beautiful cottage Pipers is. On the website it looked great already, but in real life the views, the atmosphere and the house itself are even better.”

(May 2015, Dick, Carolyn and family. Boston USA)

“We could not have picked a better place to stay in Ireland. These wonderful views from the terrace and cosy cottage will stay in our hearts forever.”

(July, 2020. Karin, Radic, Vaclav. Pila Czech Republic.)

 

Out & About

 

Isolated but not remote, the Beara Peninsula defies analysis.
The sea, the air, the history, there’s so much to explore …

Here are some of our favourites…

 

The Locality

 

 

The nearest town for basic requirements is Ardgroom just 3km away. Close to the village there is a picturesque stone circle, one of a plethora of megalithic monuments to be found in the region.

For more serious shopping, gourmet restaurants, and an informal farmers market on Wednesdays, Kenmare is a delightful 30 minute drive back up the Bay.

The rugged Beara peninsular is shared by counties Cork and Kerry – Cove Lodge is balanced on the border. The Ring of Beara road twists its way around this headland, exposing colourful hamlets in its path. Narrow, but with minimal traffic, it is a splendid tour, and the views are spectacular. For Cyclists or walkers the Beara Way offers a safer route.

Wild Atlantic Way

At the tip of the peninsula a spur off the loop road continues to Ballaghboy. From here you can catch Irelands only cable car for the ten minute ride to Dursey Island. The rickety car carries six passengers (or the equivalent in sheep) about 250m above infamous Dursey Sound, where strong tides make travelling by boat hazardous.

With magnificent views stretching from the Skelligs to Mizen Head, only a handful of inhabitants brave this wild and windy island. Dolphins, whales and innocent basking sharks are frequently seen in the surrounding seas.

The Caha Mountain range runs down the spine of Beara, and Hungry Hill is the highest of its peaks. The panorama at the top is of course staggering, but the route is a bit all-terrain and needs fine weather.

To cross back to Cove Lodge, don’t miss the Tim Healy Pass. This zigzag road is worth it for the wonderful scenery, and is one of the classic Irish Car Rally stages.

photo – John Gibson

For a period during the 19th century copper mining was the major industry in the area, and much evidence still exists in the small town of Allihies where there is an interesting museum.

Castletownbere on the southern side of the peninsula is Irelands largest white fish port. The harbour is deep and is reputed to be one of the safest in the world. Sheltered by Bear Island, it has a long military history.

The tiny Garnish Island, just off the town of Glengarrif demonstrates this in a series of gardens flush with rhododendrons, azaleas and other surprising plants.

There are ample sites for fishing into deep water straight off the rocky Beara shoreline. Glenbeg Lake, is also teeming with trout and the short Glenmore river spate is extremely prolific, with runs of Spring Salmon coming in March, and Sea-Trout in mid June to late July.

How to get there – Car advised…

Aherlow Castle

Aherlow Castle

Aherlow Castle

…many’s the pleasant days we spent...

Book this home

County Tipperary

Originally constructed in 1805 on the tranquil south facing slopes of the Glen of Aherlow, with exceptional views of the Galtee Mountains, the restoration of this cosy, twin turreted country castle has been a labour of love for the owners.

Just an hours drive from either Cork or Limerick City in the heartland of pastoral Ireland.

 

A very homely castle

Essentially just one room deep, almost everywher bar the kitchen, enjoys spectacular southerly views across the glen.
With no obvious entrance portico, and convenient parking in the rear courtyard, normal access is via the impressive kitchen.

Rustic country style, with a generous gas range, Belfast sink, and limestone flooring, this large kitchen is also the main dining area, with sturdy leather upholstered oak chairs and matching table.

There is a small larder adjacent, and a separate utility room off the rear lobby.

The spacious sitting room and the library alongside have original polished flooring, high ceilings and open hearths.

Both rooms also open through brass handled French doors, onto the gravelled front and that ubiquitous view.

There is a continuous vista spanning the garden level of the castle by dint of a series of connecting doors.

Past the library, the ground floor of the octagonal tower with its high windows, serves as a study – a more intimate refuge.

Beyond that, what was once the oratory retains its distinctive doors and ceiling brackets, and external impressions on the walls reminiscent of a Templar cross; an additional reception room, less formal and great as a games room.

A powder blue corridor extends across the back of the castle, connecting the ground floor rooms.​

Bedrooms

The quirky nature of 200+ year old buildings, is that there are two wheelchair friendly bedrooms – a single and a cosy double – off the sitting room at the East end of the house.

They share a small bathroom at the end of the blue corridor.

The remaining three bedrooms are arranged in a row on the next floor; two with magnificent views across to the Galtee Mountains.

The elegant master bedroom boasts a stunning contemporary ensuite bathroom.

The other 2 bedrooms share a generous traditional family bathroom with bath and shower.

There is no guest access to the zenith of the two towers.

Outside

The Castle is at the end of a long avenue that winds upwards between fields. Surrounded by 34 acres of private woods, there are spectacular walks above the property amongst the cover of ancient trees.

There is a ring fort on the property and also an ancient Legaun stone.

There is a complete set of furniture and a gas barbecue for dining Al Fresco – which you can do front or back, weather permitting.

Beautiful, restful, enchanting place. Very special.

We really loved our time here, there is something very special about this place, a deeply restful and calming space that’s incredibly healing. The surrounding environment is beyond beautiful, such a joy to wake to mists over the distant hills.

Sitting in the middle reading room in the mornings with the french windows giving such an amazing view. The silence was restorative and we were able to just ‘be’. Loved the big kitchen, high ceilings, furnishings, everything was so calming. After a very busy and stressful covid few months, we all felt so blessed to have come to Aherlow castle and we left lighter, calmer and ready to face the world again. Freda and Declan are lovely people and kind hosts who gave us our space but were there if we needed them. The walks in the surrounding area are also fantastic and this is an area of outstanding natural beauty.

One of my favorite holidays and the best place we’ve ever stayed in.

Out & About

 

Rural peace and solicitude define this ancient crossroads – make the most of it.

Here are some of our tips…

The annual Bansha Show this year is August 24th

 

The Locality

 

 

There are a couple of small grocery shops, some great pubs and a good butcher in the local village of Bansha only 5 minutes away, with several larger ones in Tipperary Town – 10 minutes.

The Galtee Mountains directly across from the Castle are Ireland’s highest inland mountain range. At 920 metres, Galtymore is the highest peak within the range.

A scrupulously maintained 7 foot high white cross, erected in 1975, overlooks the Glen of Aherlow from the Eastern summit – there are two.

Considered a walker’s paradise, there are a variety of mapped walking routes along forest tracks and across open moorland throughout the Glen of Aherlow.

picture Robert Lindsdell

20 minutes away, the feudal Cahir Castle, one of the largest and best preserved in Ireland, is sited on a rocky island in the river Suir. Mostly constructed by the Butler family during the 13th and 15th Centuries, it has featured in several blockbuster productions including Excalibur and more recently, The Tudors.

Discovered in 1833, and close to Cahir, The Mitchelstown Cave is one of the largest and most complex cave systems in Ireland. It features massive caverns with dripstone formations, stalactites, stalagmites, including one which stands some 9 meters in height.

The temperature within the cave remains at a constant 12° Celsius all year.

The Rock of Cashel, 30 minutes away, was once the seat of the High Kings of Munster, though little evidence remains of their time here – most of the buildings dating from the 12th and 13th centuries. This iconic structure which stands out against the skyline has a long and compeling history is one of Ireland’s most spectacular and most visited attractions.

Tipperary Races

How to get there – Car advised…

By Air: Flights to Dublin, Cork or Shannon airports.
Dublin Airport – approx. 2 and a quarter hours from the castle.
Cork Airport – approx. 1 and a quarter hours from the castle.
Shannon Airport – also approx. 1 and a quarter hours from the castle.

By Sea: Ferry crossings
Dublin City Port/Holyhead has a fast crossing and is about 2.5 hours from the castle.
Rosslare Harbour for Ferries to South Wales is just over 2 hours from the castle.

Drombeg, Beara, Co. Cork

Drombeg is simply one of the very best situated homes on the beautiful Beara peninnsula.

Set in its own private garden from its hill-top location Drombeg commands stunning 360 degree views taking in the Kenmare river, Caha and Kerry mountains and the Atlantic ocean. Two miles from the lovely village of Ardgroom (good shop and pub), Drombeg is on the Beara way, part of the magical Wild Atlantic Way.

A traditional Beara farm-house, Drombeg has recently been sensitively, brightly and professionally converted to offer modern, cosey accommodation for four.  The home is a snug base from which to explore the fabulous and unspoilt beauty of Beara or to simply relax with a good book and glass of whatever-you-please to enjoy the peaceful location and magical views and to simply unwind.

 

The dining and living room can be entered via the small handy hall-way or directly from the east garden.

The living area downstairs is airy, bright and spacious and has been designed with careful thought given to light so that even on dull days the light from the sky lights above the stair well ensures brightness and a welcome.
Drombeg is centrally heated throughout supplemented by a simple to use and very effective Scandinavian wood-burning stove (Yotul). So sunny and bright on those fine days and snug and warm at other times.

The fully equipped, modern kitchen leads from the dining room and includes a delightful bright breakfast area.

A wonderful place coffee in hand to ease into the day while immersed in the views north over the sea to the Kerry mountains and east over Ardgroom harbour to the Caha mountains beyond.

The upstairs bedrooms are accessed by stairs leading from the living area.

The second bedroom (to the right) provides two single beds. Lit by sky lights the snug space is bright and airey with views over the fields and hedgerows towards Ardgroom and Glenbeg lake.

The bathroom on the landing between both bedrooms offers a power-shower supplied with lashings of hot water. As with the rest of the house the bathroom is airy and spotless.

Fully modernised Drombeg offers totally comfortable modern day living while freshly painted thick stone walls and traditional furnishing hark back to its proud, traditional Beara roots.

Enjoy the lovely paintings by local artists in Beara which can be further experienced in galleries in Kenmare and by following the Beara artists trail guide which will take you right to their studios

Outside

Given its wonderful position, the gardens of Drombeg surrounding the house offer sheltered sitting areas to the east, north and west.

The terrace provides views to the east over Ardgroom harbour and the Caha mountains and north across Kenmare Bay to the Kerry mountains. The terrace is equipped with comfortable outdoor seating and large table. A portable barbeque is provided. A perfect place to watch the sun set and the moon rise, or the sun rise and the moon set depending on how you have chosen to spend your days.

To the east a private garden provides a second secluded and sheltered area.

It also features beautiful traditional farm outbuildings that have recently been finely restored.

A wonderful magic place-both this cottage and Beara. The view was incredible and our cow neighbours fun and friendly. Beara itself was beyond words: the beauty, not touristy, just a beautiful, haunting, spectacular world that we will always cherish and hopefully come back to.” (June 2019, John and Karen, Vermont, USA).

To Sheila and Jo, Thank you. All expectations came true ! This cottage, this place, the surroundings, the mountains, the view, the sky, the clouds, the rain, the sun, the waterfalls, the ocean…It all came together and we loved it. (August 2019. Erik and Aline, Holland)”.

Well, what can we say that has not been said by the many who have already stayed here? We don’t want to leave…..ever…… ( July, 2017. Angela and Angus, Rotheram, UK).

The cottage became home, the second we stepped in. We enjoyed the peace and the tranquility- the bumble bees being the noisiest sound. And on our last night we  watched the Milky Way and falling stars. We will carry all this back with us, especially the most beautiful views ever…… (August 2017, Vendulka and family, NYC, USA).

The nearest town for basic requirements is Ardgroom just 3km away. The landscape has many Neolithic monuments with the village being marked by a stone circle.

For more serious shopping, working port town Castletown-Bearhaven is just 17 minutes by car.

Beara is a landscape of rolling grasslands and jagged hills, split centrally between Cork and Kerry. Kerry’s foodie hotspot Kenmare and Cork’s mountain valley retreat, Glengarriff are nearly equidistant from Drombeg Cottage, each about 40 minutes by car.

County Down

Plucked from the precipice of almost certain ruin, this idle mid-19th century church, with its classical cake-icing façade, has been meticulously reconstituted into a chic holiday retreat.
Located in the heart of Game of Thrones® territory, adjacent to the narrows of Strangford Lough, this is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, with easy access to Belfast.

 

Contemporary conservation with class

Tripping across the vestibule, where the stone flags have been polished by nearly 200 years of shoe leather, we find a bright and airy contemporary living space.
In fact most of the lofty sanctuary has been retained as an open plan social forum, loosely zoned by function, with kitchen and dining to one side and lounge and television on the other.

A modern wood-burning stove with exposed chimney flu, forms the focal point for the lounge area, with plenty of comfortable sofas to take the weight off…

Many of the recognisable features of a church have been retained and put to good use, as with the pulpit which has been incorporated into the stairway, and the original American organ, which had to be completely dismantled and rebuilt due to water damage.

Much care was taken to ensure that the correct materials and traditional methods were used throughout this Award winning conversion, where ornate cornices and plasterwork, wooden panelling and full height Georgian windows all required extensive repairs.

The high spec Shaker style kitchen, while bringing a splash of blue to one corner, also encourages inclusive family cooking by being part of the larger space. Expect the odd extra, like a wine cooler…

Accommodation lies in what was once the alter end, with two double bedrooms, one of which has direct access to the family bathroom with free standing bath, under floor heating, and separate walk in shower.

A few paces beyond, the single story Session House extension at the rear of the church has been transformed into a spacious panelled bedroom. The original solid doors now lead to its ensuite with generous walk in shower.

Floating on its’ own supports, to limit stress on the original structure, the mezzanine level with its glass balustrade gallery overlooks the living area. Behind it, there are a further two double bedrooms, both ensuite.

Where the tall arched windows now span two levels, a glass floor softens the transition.

Outside

The church is elevated above the street level with views across rolling green fields, and to Castleward Bay. A lawn and Barbecue area to the front is sheltered by mature trees which also provide privacy. Unrestricted parking is readily available on the street directly in front of The Sanctuary.

A laundry room, which doubles as a secure lock-up for bicycles, golf clubs etc. lies adjacent to the church side entrance.
