Grandad's House
 - St. Finian's Bay -


GRANDAD'S HOUSE is a traditional cottage near the sandy beach in St. Finan's Bay. The task of restoring and extending this typical Kerry Cottage was finished in 2012. The location right beside the sea guarantees breathtaking views towards the Atlantic, Puffin Island and The Skelligs. 
Guests in this house will have a quiet an undisturbed stay. In the direct neighborhood there is a disused farm building, the next house is about 150m away and occupied by the owner's family. 

Grandad's House was restored and furnished to highlight the character and charme of a traditional country cottage. Still, with central heating, plenty of light, modern kitchen units and new bathrooms it offers temporary comfort.

A small hall separates two sitting rooms. The larger one consists of a seating area in front of a solid fuel stove and a comfortable dining area. The smaller cosy room has a corner sofa in front of an open fire. Both rooms offer a TV set. 
On the ground floor there is as well a spacious and well equipped kitchen with patio door leading into the garden.
The first floor offers three bedrooms. One bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom and with an open fire, TV and a desk in front of a panoramic window facing the sea it can be used as a retreat from the family life below.

Most of the rooms in this house have magnificent views towards the sea.

It is a 5 minutes stroll to the picturesque sandy beach of St. Finian's Bay. A larger beach in Ballinskelligs and the small fishing village of Portmagee with shop, pubs and restaurants is only a short drive away.
