Creel Cottage is a stunning seaside getaway with 360 degrees of mountain and sea views. Ideally situated just off the Ring of Kerry, the Kerry Way hiking trail and the Wild Atlantic Coast. There are two world class golf courses in Waterville as well as numerous other courses to choose from around the county. From the doorstep there's a lovely 4km circular walk and a walk up and over the Hog's Head which reveals more delightful views. Access to the beach is a short 5 minute walk down a little path with a mountain stream and waterfall. There are a number of other lovely sandy and safe swimming beaches within a short drive. Bring your boat or dingy and launch it off the jetty half a mile up the road for a fishing trip. Trout and salmon fishing is also available in the nearby Lake Currane.

Cycling is also popular in the area and bike hire is available in Caherciveen. The cottage is in an International Dark Sky reserve and the Milky Way is spectacularly visible on a clear night. The nearest town of Waterville is 2.5 km away with a good selection of bars and restaurants, two supermarkets, a butchers, post office, pharmacy and craft shops. There are public tennis courts, a basketball court and a children's park. Creel Cottage is beautifully furnished providing all the home comforts. There's good mobile phone connectivity and wifi is available. A light bright sunroom has both sea and mountain views and is a lovely place to relax and watch TV which is linked up to a freeview sat dish. There is a fully equipped kitchen/diner with a central island that seats 4. There's a double oven, fridge freezer, microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer. The living room has been tastefully furnished with a woodburner and a further TV to watch DVDs or listen to music from the Bose docking station with Bluetooth. It is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the mind blowing sunsets with a sundowner or two. The main bedroom has a king size bed and has en suite shower room (electric shower). Bedroom 2 has a zip and link bed so can be used as a twin or king size bed. Bedroom 3 has a double bed. There is a large family bathroom with a bath and a separate power shower. The cottage sits on an acre of garden which is entirely enclosed and has plenty of parking. Garden furniture is available and BBQ utensils. There is no BBQ but the local supermarket has a plentiful stock of disposable ones. More

Excellent property to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Very relaxing, stunning views. A well equipped home away from home, could not have asked for better. Plenty of outdoor space.
