A little Slice of Heaven Overlooking Kenmare Bay” – this really is the best description of our Glamping or “Glamorous Camping” experience we offer here at our bespoke cabins on our sheep farm on the outskirts of Kenmare. Nestled on top of a green field with access to Mucksna Mountain our two cabins offer a pure and natural escape from the hustle and bustle but yet are within a leisurely 20mins walk with lovely views from the wonderful heritage town of Kenmare.
Each of our unique cabins will has its own private space with outdoor seating area and bbq grill/fire pit. Access will be via a gravel pathway from the parking spot. Luggage can be loaded in your own wheelbarrow provided at your parking spot!
Facing south west from the front you will have the most wonderful sunsets each evening over Kenmare Bay while in the mornings the sun rises just behind the cabins. Why not make the short walk to the top of our farm for the lovely summer sunrise overlooking the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and Kenmare Town. You will only have the company of our sheep quietly grazing, a hare or a pheasant or maybe one of the wild deer that roam the hills in this area. A great way to start the day in Kerry.
Bring your picnic blanket provided and you will have ample private and quiet spots on the hillside or in the wild woodland to have a lazy lunch, read your favourite book, meditate or just enjoy the views and nature. Evenings can be spent enjoying a glass of wine while watching the sun setting behind the majestic MacGillycuddy’s Reeks and soaking in the wonderful clear night skies we have in this area. On those damp days retire to your cosy cabin and let the sound of the rain gently put you into a deep and restful sleep.
