Kenmare Rentals is the most recent addition to our family business. Owning and managing O'Donnabhain's Bar & Guest House for many years, we have seen an opening for Self Catering / Holiday Homes as many of our initial guests who are staying with us for the last few years, are spending longer periods here, and it is another alternative.. We have also realised that it can be more cost-efficient and often more convenient for guests who are visiting Kenmare for longer periods of time, to make themselves at home in one of our Self Catering Holiday Homes . If it is your dream to spend a week in a Holiday Cottage in Co. Kerry, then we can make that dream come true.
In recent years, we have therefore newly built or carefully restored, and lovingly furnished and fitted out a small number of Self Catering properties in or near Kenmare town. The properties were designed and finished to our own high standards of comfort and requirement for space, and will truly offer you a home away from home. Kenmare is an ideal base to explore, the South West of Ireland . Co. Kerry, with the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, and the Gap of Dunloe on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful Ring of Beara in Co. Cork, which starts in Kenmare.
Jer Foley purchased this cottage in 2006

Modern, spacious house. We loved design of the living areas and large bedrooms, esp. jaccuzzi bath. Situated on hillside over looking Kenmare bay and mountains the views are breath taking. Owners very helpful when travel arrangements had to be changed.
We spent a lovely week in this beautiful well equipped villa with a beautiful view of the sea.
Quiet and close to the town too.
We enjoyed our stay very much and surely highly recommend the holiday home. As advertised it is a remote and very quiet place in the midst of nature. The view over the lake is stunning.
The apartment was spacious and very comfortable; one of the best we have stayed in and we always stay in apartments. Jer Foley was brilliant with his friendliness and support. The location was to die for - views, near to Kenmare, lovely spacious gardens, outside sitting area in the evening sun. It is also the perfect base for seeing South West Ireland. The culture of the people in Kenmare has to be experienced - friendly, helpful, pleasant - you don't need zebra crossings as drivers stop to wave you across the road! All in all a wonderful experience - we will be back to this apartment in September 2017.
Very happy with the house and it was well placed for touring Co Kerry. Nit picking - could do with some TLC as it was slightly tired and for example, the oven could do with in depth cleaning. Extra hand towels wouldn't come amiss (luxury). Kenmare is a grand town with a buzz and plenty of bars, cafes and shops. There are also several supermarkets for supplies. Owners v helpful. All in all a really good holiday.
We had a very good week in Bun Cill Ahat
The house is very comfortable.
The view in the kenmare baie is fabulous, and it's very calm.
We recommand this house.
The house was just like the pictures. The flowers around the house were an additional nice treat. A word of advice, though. There are two identical homes on the property ... Bun Cill Athat and Barr Cill Athat. We learned Bun means "lower" and Barr means "upper". While the views from Bun Cill Athat are nice, the views from Barr Cill Athat are spectacular (since it was higher up the hill). If views are important to you and Barr Cill Athat is available, request that home. If Barr isn't available, Bun is a very nice alternative.
While staying in Kenmare, there are so many day trips for you to do at your own pace, here are just a few ideas, these are like a tasters of things to do, when you book one of our Holiday Homes, we give you access to more comprehensive information about all the different things to do, on a part of our site that is only accessible to our guests.

Only 2.5 miles from the town of Kenmare is the townland of Killaha, beautifully located on a gently sloped mountainside from where lovely views of Kenmare Bay, the MacGillycuddy Reeks and the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed. Killaha is situated on the Ring of Beara, renowned for its rugged scenery and peaceful beauty spots. Being that close to Kenmare, Killaha has all amenities and services close at hand but enjoys a quality of life that is synonymous with the countryside.
