“They lived and laughed
and loved and left.”
The remote lakeside location of the cottage in County Kerry, was once only home to a heard of mountain goats, who used it to shelter from the bleak Irish winters. Hundreds of years on, a local family transformed the abandoned mountainside cottage into a luxury hideaway that couples and families can claim all for themselves. Set between emerald green farmland and cloud-shrouded mountains, beneath its red iron roof.
The cottage was built in the early 1800s and then abandoned in 1960 when Jack 'The Badger' O'Shea moved his family to Killarney. For the next 40 years, it became a winter refuge to a herd of goats (they're still on the mountain!) then in 2003 we started to restore the cottage by first carefully peeling off its rotting roof to create the beautiful cottage.
Paradise found, on a mountain side in Kerry.
