A Luxury Kenmare Townhouse Offering Exceptional Hospitality for 6/7 Guests

Bayside Holiday home with kitchen and balcony
This gracious townhouse is tucked away in the heart of the village. The secluded location is perfect. Instead of driving into Kenmare for a daily visit, you’re already there. Everything—groceries, pubs, restaurants, entertainment, shops, churches—are close at hand. No searching around town for a parking spot. You walk everywhere. You don’t feel like a visitor. You’ll live like locals. Nestled in a copse of eleven white birch trees, Stoneybrough contains 1540 square feet of living area, complete with a full length deck overlooking the River Finnehy, and a fine garden between. You’ll discover an ancient, beautifully designed drystone bridge, known as the Cromwell Bridge, in full view of this highly acclaimed property. A carefully tended Druid stone circle, predating Stonehenge by 2000 years, is around the corner and up toward the end of Market Street, a pleasant ten minute walk rewarded with quiet moments contemplating the ancient stonework and the hardy folk who built it. Stoneybrough boasts solid Burmese teak woodwork, wall to wall hotel grade wool carpeting throughout, beveled glass French doors and other design and decorating touches you'll find nowhere else. Guests enjoy free WiFi along with Sky TV in the lounge, dining room, and the master suite as well. A Bluetooth-enabled stereo radio/CD player with a variety of mostly Irish music—to put you in the mood— is on the bar next to the kitchen. Play your own favorite playlists, but we challenge you to put on “Galway Girl” by The Kilkenny Boys and not sing along! Stoneybrough is now fitted with a Gen2 Alexa device for information and entertainment. Two sculptured marble fireplaces provide warmth and comfort, one with a classic Liscannor stone hearth. You'll enjoy pressured showers and powerful built-in hair dryers. A state of the art Apple iMAC computer, free WiFi, a fully equipped kitchen and private off street parking round out the amenities. For a second car, a free public car park is found just across the footbridge. Stoneybrough furnishes locally made, all natural non-allergenic guest soaps and luxurious robes for all our guests. The cook will find everything needed, right down to alderwood planks for those freshly caught salmon filets on the grill and a DeLonghi cappuccino/espresso machine for your pleasant, tranquil mornings on the deck. Stoneybrough is not an investment property rented and operated by a management company. Rather, it’s our second home, managed by us with the help of Joanne, our amazing housekeeper. We believe Stoneybrough strikes the perfect balance between upscale luxury and carefree relaxation. Befitting the honor of achieving VRBO/Homeaway’s coveted “Premier Partner” level, we proudly feature premium Boll and Branch linens on every bed, and luxurious Merino lambswool-filled pillows in the Master Suite. At Stoneybrough, you’ll find American comforts you’d expect, but with an Irish accent. Along with carefully chosen period art and antiques, you'll notice a decorative battle sword mounted on a wall opposite the kitchen, and a genuine Irish drum called a boudran'. These symbolize the great paradox of Irish civilization: their fierce, warlike history melded with their fun-loving, lively and charming musical traditions. Just two doors away from Stoneybrough you'll find The Bookstop Cafe' where you'll be tempted by warm scones fresh from the oven daily, and Olga's marvelous soups and quiches for lunch, infused with superb cheeses from her own farm. The Irish are great readers and writers. Pull down a book from the hundreds on hand, have some tea, and read awhile. A two-minute stroll takes you to the heart of downtown, with the finest restaurants, pubs, two five star hotels, live music, and busy shops and galleries for which Kenmare is justly famous. The five-star Park and Sheen Falls hotels provide fine cuisine as well, along with luxurious spa experiences judged by Fodor's as the best in Europe. Kenmare Golf Club, with beautiful views of Kenmare Bay, is only a short walk away. The Ring of Kerry course overlooking Kenmare Bay and the majestic mountains beyond is only a ten-minute drive. You'll also find Kenmare centrally located for many of the finest golfing experiences in Ireland: the Ballybunion, Waterville, Beaufort, Dooks, Glengariff, Old Head, Tralee and Killarney courses are all within reasonable driving distances. Kenmare rests astride The Wild Atlantic Way, at the foot of the Ring of Kerry, the most popular travel destination in Ireland. There you'll find breathtaking scenery, stone age ring forts, many unforgettable stops and the striking 6th century monastic site on the island of Skellig Michael, (a UNESCO World Heritage Site). The island hosted the final scenes in Star Wars VII, when Rae delivers the lost light saber to a brooding Luke Skywalker, and now, a more extensive exposure to the island in Star Wars VIII. A stunning place just an hour away from Stoneybrough. You can even visit a long string of pre-historic fossilized tetrapod tracks on nearby Valencia Island. A full day exploring the Ring, another on the wild and less-traveled Beara Peninsula, and still another spent on the equally spectacular Dingle Peninsula (Ryan's Daughter was filmed there) will leave you with the most indelible experiences and memories imaginable. By special arrangement, a private tour guide can customize the perfect day trips to meet your requirements, and our housekeeper, Joanne, is on call to provide flawless concierge-level service throughout your stay. Returning home, you might whip up a gourmet dinner served on Ralph Lauren Wedgwood china, with the freshest locally sourced ingredients from Roger O'Sullivan's butcher shop and the delightful small grocery just across the cobbled street from Stoneybrough. Feast on local grass fed beef, or fresh Kerry lamb, seasoned and garnished with rosemary picked from your own garden. Or indulge yourself with savory alderwood-grilled Atlantic salmon caught just offshore, with fresh dill from the deck planter. Or not! Take in an evening of fine dining, fun, music and entertainment at any of the amazing pubs and gourmet restaurants just a five minute walk away. There you’ll enjoy the freshest salmon, shrimp, whitefish, cod, and bay mussels, a local delicacy, in every bowl of steamy, creamy Kenmare seafood chowder. And try the grass-fed beef, venison, Kerry lamb, and the traditional colcannon potato dish with a bit of rich Kerry Gold butter. Delicious! Then, after an evening of fine food, drink and entertainment, stroll home under the stars, and fall asleep to the enchanting music of the River Finnehy.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful home & location
The home was cozy, warm, and comfortable. The location was perfect for exploring the beautiful Kerry coast. I recommend this property highly.

5/5 Excellent

Stoneybrough
Exquisite for a number of reasons. Location - out the front door & steps away is lovely Kenmare. Yet condo is quiet with only sound of stream running alongside property. Amenities - condo quite comfortable. Exquisite master bedroom & bath; other bedrooms with en suite bath - hot water, on wall hair dryer. Linens, comforters, & bath accessories high quality. Joanne meets you on arrival & is available for questions/support as needed. John provides tons of information to help you plan your day/stay. Kenmare smaller & less crowded than Killarney - we very much enjoyed this difference.

5/5 Excellent
