General description

  • Secondary home
A well built brick House on the Grounds of a Waterfront Country Estate Property. Warm Insulated and double glazed with central heating and simple kitchen / living room downstairs with a one bedroom accommodation . Modern bathroom with rain shower en suite. The House is located 2-3 Metres from the waterfront of a tidal Bay... we mean it when we say it is a WATERFRONT property.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • Animals with specific needs
  • Big garden
  • A dog
  • Farm animals
I have 2 elderly, small female dogs who are happy with a short daily walk on the beach behind the house. Old and quiet non yappy dogs needing cuddles and company and also someone needed to care for 5 hens.
The House sitter will need to check up on a larger property and to do basic gardening grass cutting or sweep the driveway.
Ideally this would suit a house sitter who is not travelling away from the house daily or extended sightseeing . The dogs are rescue dogs from a previous life where they were never left alone - so It's ideal for someone working
/ staying at the property most of the time. The WiFi is good here so it is also a great house sit for someone employed from home wanting a change in scenery for a few months

The property is located in one of the most beautiful parts of North Kerry -just 15 mins outside of the town of Tralee.

The location is literally ON the waterside of a tidal bay called Barrow Bay with 2 acres of private waterfront for the house sitter to enjoy exclusively....from every angle there are breathtaking views of the Slieve Mish mountains range of the Dingle Peninsula. Wildlife galore, and a private boat deck.
The house is 5 mins walk to the world famous Tralee Golf Course. There is a driving time of appx 8 mins to Ardfert shops or the Fenit village marina.

The House sitter accommodation is the "gatehouse" - a one bedroomed cosy , warm and fully self contained house on the property of a larger country house which is closed for the winter.

Tourism and Leisure

Whilst the house is located on its own private grounds a short drive out of town and there are no public transport services in the area. making us wholly dependent on cars or worst case scenario bicycles in this neck of the woods....

The house sitter would need their own transport to facilitate trips to the shops or general sightseeing beyond local walks.

the Towns of Tralee , Killarney and Dingle and the all famous locations on the WILD ATLANTIC WAY are all within 15-40 mins driving distance
Restaurants, Shops, Cinema, Museum and live music is all available in Tralee our nearest large town.

From Wednesday 2021

To Sunday 2022

firm dates

These dates are mildly flexible - but I would like someone who will definitely be staying over from Mide December through Christmas and New Year until mid January at the least. This would suit a couple or a solo traveler comfortable on their own... Are you looking for a hideaway place to write that novel? This is it!!!
