 - St. Finian's Bay -


BALLYNABLOUN is a restored and extended cottage in a beautiful location overlooking St. Finan's Bay.  From the house and its nice garden you can enjoy breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean. This property is furnished with great taste and is well equipped. The owner took great care to retain the typical old features of a traditional cottage and combined this with  modern comfortable elements.

This cottage is placed in a quiet area below a small road which leads down to St. Finian's Bay with one of the nicest small sandy beaches in Kerry. In walking distance to the beach you will find the Driftwood Cafe and Restaurant as well as the Skelligs Chocolate Factory with it's Cafe during the summer months. It is only a short drive to he picturesque fishing village of Portmagee with a shop, pubs and restaurants.

Being more than 100 years old, the house had to be completely restored. This work resulted in is an open-plan ground floor area that accommodates part of the kitchen and dining table as well as a cosy sitting area in front of an open fire. An extension with a back door at the rear of the cottage acts as kitchen and utility room with a washing machine. Plenty of traditional elements ( slate floor, exposed beams, natural stone walls, Belfast Sink) create a warm cosy atmosphere. A glazed patio door opens to the south-facing garden. There are amazing unspoilt views towards the sea and the mountains of Kerry. 

The first floor provides two bedrooms (1 double / 2 single beds) with plenty of light from various windows and a small shower bathroom with WC.
