White Cottage Barn
Tucked into the hillside at the foot of Cruach Mhór in the mighty Macgillycuddy Reeks, just twenty minutes’ drive from Killarney and Killorglin, White Cottage Barn is the perfect mountain retreat for hill walkers, countryside lovers and seekers of peace and quiet, and a great base from which to explore the Reeks District and this beautiful part of Kerry.
There are walks straight from the door onto the fells, which give panoramic views of the mountains. For the more adventurous, it is possible to hike to the top of Cnoc an Bhraca, Cruach Mhór, and the Big Gun Ridge. Cronin’s Yard, which is the start of the hike to Carrauntoohil, and the stunning Gap of Dunloe, are both within a ten-minute drive.
The Barn is ideal for two, with a cosy mezzanine with comfortable double bed, but a third person can be accommodated by use of the sofa bed. Fuel is supplied for the woodburner in the open plan living area. Enjoy snuggling up and watching one of the many DVDs or read a book, make use of the wi-fi, or simply disconnect and relax. A fully-equipped kitchen, utility area, with washing machine and shower room, complete this cosy home-from-home. On warmer days, enjoy the private patio and garden with picnic bench, and access to the main garden with beautiful views of Strickeen and Cruach Mhór.
Whether looking for tranquility or adventure, White Cottage Barn is the perfect place to stay.
