My cosy cottage is located on the famous and beautiful Beara Peninsula 16 km (or 10 miles) from Kenmare on the Wild Atlantik Way and the Ring of Beara, with breathtaking views over the Atlantic and the Knockatee Mountain in a tranquil setting.
My house is an restored traditional Irish cottage with all its charm. It is located in a peaceful setting on a quiet road, fully detached.
I am renting a pull out coach, which converts into a comfortable (!!) 1.4(URL HIDDEN)bed in my homely and cosy living room, which sleeps two people. It is a self-contained room to give you privacy during your stay.
I cater for people with a gluten- and wheat free diet!
Breakfast which will be served between 8.00 & 9.30 am. If you need to leave earlier, no problem it can be arranged.
I love to cook, having had a bakery and a Cafe for nine years, so I am offering dinner at an extra charge, where I cater for special food requirements, like gluten free and wheat free food, as well.
The house has oil heating and in the cooler evenings we just light the fire to make you feel comfortable.
The internet access can be very poor, there is WiFi in the house, because the house is located in a more rural area, which has its own charm.
Towels, sheets, hairdryer are provided.
I am a very artistic person, the house reflects this in lots of detail, which makes the house very beautiful.
There are two bathrooms (shared) in the house, one is near the living room, which is mainly used as a guest toilet. The spacious bathroom is upstairs with a walk-in shower, toilet and bath and a fabulous view over the bay.
I am happy to share my sitting room area with you, this is where I serve your breakfast as well.
If the weather is suitable you can choose to have your breakfast in my garden.
I love to welcome people in my house, having had a Cafe for a long time, where I enjoyed to engage with my guests and make them feel very welcome.
I still have a gluten free business and will be away during the day on some days, but
I will be around on your arrival and when you are leaving.
We will have time perhaps to swap stories or exchange information about your planned journey, if you wish so. I am more than happy to give you every information you need to make it a fabulous holiday.
My partner works in London, this is the reason why I love to invite people to share my lovely house.
We are dog-friendly and have no problem if your dog is house trained, the room would be probably to small, but if you have a dog bed or blanket, he can sleep in the sitting room.
There is a little cat "Dollop" member of the family. She is mostly outside, but sleeps in the house.
Smokers have to smoke outside the house.
I am originally from Germany and in my former life I was 25 years an emergency nurse . I moved to Ireland in 2004 to set up a German Bakery, because bread was what I missed most when I came to Ireland. I sold this business in 2013 and I am now running an award winning gluten free confectionary business.
In having had a Cafe for a number of years as well, I enjoy the contact with people very much and love the hospitality business.
My passion is cooking, baking, exploring Ireland, reading, as well as being a very artistic person. I love dress making, painting and everything which turns my creative mind on.
I am looking forward to welcome you in my creative and cosy world!
Carpe diem - it is never too late to start something new, what makes your heart sing!
