About Bedrock Cottage

Business owner.

Bedrock Cottage purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Bedrock Cottage chose Greenane

I purchased this property because of its spectacular views across the entire Kenmare Bay, and onwards to the mountains on the Beara Peninsula. This peaceful and serene location, coupled with the spectacular panorama from each window, was a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase such a place of great tranquility that I can eventually retire to. It's location just off the Ring of Kerry route, which is part of the Wild Atlantic Way, close to Kenmare which is a vibrant town on the Ring of Kerry, was of course a huge factor also, in making what was a very quick decision!

What makes this cottage unique

The views of course, and oh!... the peace..............................Sorry, can't think of any words that can be adequate................Look, just come and feel it for yourself....

5 star location with brilliant views of Kenmare Bay

  • 4 of 5

Lovely spacious and cosy cottage (very effective underfloor heating) with great views from large French windows. Hurricane-proof too (Ophelia struck during our stay)..! Friendly, helpful owner. Less than 15 mins drive into Kenmare for pubs, restaurants etc and only 25 mins into Killarney National Park. Ring of Kerry road 5 mins. Didn't manage to get the driveway lights working and a few bulbs missing or not working (outside light, cooker hood, extractor fan etc). Had we mentioned these relatively minor issues at the time I'm sure Patrick would have sorted for us but we didn't so that's our fault. If we find ourselves in these parts again we would book again without hesitation. Internet worked well. Ring of Kerry golf club next door too. Detached, private, peaceful. Flat-screen TV would be nice. Very enjoyable all-round.

Perfect setting, condition and facilities, faultless

  • 5 of 5

The cottage has stunning views and is even ideal when the gales are howling and that horizontal rain lashing between the sunny days. The fishing was excellent. The cottage was sufficiently well away from centres of population to inspire some writing too. All in all a perfect stay, thank you Patrick.

Just spent a lovely relaxing week in this lovely. The photos don't do it justice. Fantastic views changing as the tide and clouds passed by. Watched the sun rise and set, just spectacular.

Thanks Patrick for the welcome gifts and your help with the internet.

We hope to be back next year.

rest and relaxation

  • 4 of 5

Cottage was neat, clean, and as described. View was lovely even when the fog rolled in. Great spot to recuperate from surgery. Have to say the best was owner Patrick. We had a few challenges immediately. The internet was not working properly; fixed quickly. The oven broke New Years Eve and within a few hrs we had a replacement for our roast chicken dinner celebration. Next, the gas went out on the cook-top and we had a replacement propane tank within an hour. Can not say enough nice things about Patrick! He brought us a beautiful basket of goodies for our troubles. He has some good reads on his bookshelf as well. Kenmare is a lovely spot and very quiet at this time of the year. Hopefully, we can find another time to revisit. Anne and Calvin

Owner's Response: Thank you Anne and Calvin for taking such great care of Bedrock during your stay. Thank you also for your patience when some of the kitchen appliances etc., had to be re- woken from their Winter hibernation and didn't want to go back to work for us as required!! It will be great to have you as Guests again anytime kind regards Patrick.
