Waterfalls Farmhouse Bed & Breakfast is located 4 miles (6km) south of Kenmare town and 1/4 mile off the famous Glengarrif road (N71). It is the ideal base from which to tour most of the beautiful and interesting towns and villages of Cork and Kerry. It is nestled among the surrounding mountains in an area of outstanding beauty and tranquility, close to the famed Ring of Kerry and the Ring of Beara. From Mizen Head (Irelands most southern point) to the Dingle Peninsula, it is certainly a walkers paradise and a tourists haven. The region has scenery that is difficult to equal, where the beauty of mountains, sea, lakes and woodland can be seen in varying light and shades whatever the weather.
Some local attractions and activities we recommend:
- Bonane Heritage Park is a successful community project that displays an astronomically significant stone circle, ringfort, and fulacht fiadh (ancient cooking pit).
- Lorge Chocolatier chocolates are handmade in Bonane, 5 Km from Kenmare on the Glengarriff road.
- Molly Gallivan’s visitor centre allows you to experience the simple country lifestyle in rural Ireland before the days of electricity and modern conveniences.
