About this listing

The space

Skellig Rest Cottage is nestled in an elevated position on the Ring of Kerry overlooking Ballinskelligs Bay and the Skellig rocks; it is adjacent to Coomakista pass between the village of Waterville and Caherdaniel.

We have an enviable location amidst spectacular scenery, flora and panoramic sea and mountain views.

The Kerry Way walking trail is right at the end of our garden, one of the most scenic trails in Ireland, with Loher Stone Fort situated just below us.

We are in an idyllic location to explore this amazing area which is renowned for its miles of golden beaches and turquoise water. There are beautiful walking and hiking trails, two world class golf courses, some of the best salmon and sea trout angling in Europe.
The cottage is in the core area of Kerrys International Dark Sky Reserve,its the oly Gold Tier Reserve in the world of the Northern Hemisphere and 1 of 3 on the planet.Meaning that on clear nights the sky in this South West Region of Ireland is simply stunning,with many more astronomical sights seen through the naked eye as can be seen , in say the Grand Canyon or the desert plains of Africa. Constellations can be viewed here with many, many more stars than are shown on the usual sky maps. The band of the Milky Way,Andromeda Galaxy,Star Clusters and Nebulas are just some of the naked eye wonders to see without the aid of any astronomical equipment or filters.Go Satellite watching, Moon gazing, Planet hunting, or simply glory in the wonder of the falling stars.

The Skillig Rest is a little gem. Mairead our host provided everything we needed including getting us on John O'Sheas boat to the Skillig Michael. What a treat.

The view from this house is incredible - the photos don't do it justice. The house is lovely and clean and the hot tub and sauna were an added bonus. Mairead was lovely and helpful, suggesting things to do and see around the area! We hope to be back again soon!
