About Bedrock Cottage
Bedrock Cottage purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Bedrock Cottage chose Kenmare
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!

Ideal base with magnificent views
Bedrock is an ideal base to explore the Ring of Kerry, the National Park, Kenmare , the cliffs, hills and sea shores in comfortable driving distance.
The ever changing views over the Kenmare River (bay) are just magnificent at any time of day and tidal level.
Bedrock is well equipped and a homely residence .
Thank you Patrick for your welcoming arrival package.
stunning views, super quiet and comfy!
Patrick's cottage was well equipped for anything we might need. We cooked dinner there one night, no problem. The beds and pillows were the comfiest of our entire Ireland vacation, so we rested deeply and well. We couldn't stop looking out the windows!--what a delight it was to wake up bleary eyed from the long hikes of the day before to see the stunning Kenmare Bay greeting us while we enjoyed our morning tea. The vantage point is phenomenal! We enjoyed the sunrises and sunsets here so much. Tucked out of the way from both Kenmare and Killarney, it was still an excellent place to access all the attractions of Killarney National Park / Gap of Dunloe and an easy drive to enjoy Kenmare town. If we had more time, it would have been a great jumping off point for Ring of Kerry and the Beara Peninsula drives as well... alas, just not enough time! We were sad to leave, and would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you, Patrick!
Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. We are so thrilled you enjoyed your stay so much at Bedrock. Thank you for your feedback and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you again in the future.

Adventures and relaxation: our memorable family stay
Cottage met and exceeded our expections for a country home with a wide unobstructed view of kenmare and small islands. It was the perfect base from which to explore the ring of Kerry, beara Peninsula and wild Atlantic way. Patrick is the quintessential host.
Many thanks for your lovely review of bedrock cottage we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the view! It was a pleasure to have your stay and we would be delighted to welcome you back again in the future.
Lovely cottage in a great location!
Bedrock Cottage exceeded out expectations. The house was comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owner and manager were easy to deal with and anticipated all our needs. We chose this as a perfect spot from which to launch adventures in every direction but we were just as happy to be right there. Having the utilities included in the rental kept things simple. We highly recommend Bedrock Cottage.

Hi Eileen and Pat. Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are delighted with this great feedback. Thank you for keeping the house in perfect condition and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.
5 star location with brilliant views of Kenmare Bay
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
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.
Located a few minutes from the famous Ring of Kerry route, which is also part of the Wild Atlantic Way, being the longest defined coastal touring route in the world and only 10kms from the highly acclaimed town of Kenmare. Within 10 Minutes from The Boat House Bistro, a small marina pier side restaurant. ( Seasonal Opening schedule) Also within 10 minutes from Dromquinna horse riding Stables. About 40 minutes drive from the renowned town of Killarney and it's famous lakes and the MacGillicuddy's Reeks mountain range with Carrantuahill being Ireland's highest peak! Very peaceful location on an elevated site off to the North of the N70 Ring of Kerry Route.
