Our local area has much to offer any visitor including beautiful sandy beaches on the shores of Ballinskelligs Bay with the historic Derry Nane also only 15 minutes drive away. This is an ideal location for surfing too - and we will be more than happy to organise a surfing trip during your stay with us.
There is no shortage of places to visit in and around the Waterville area which is rich in history. In nearby Cahirciveen you can visit the historic home of Daniel O´Connell, who was often referred to as “The uncrowned king of Ireland”.
Also nearby are the historic monastic settlements of Skellig Michael. At the top of the Skellig Micheal island is a perfectly preserved monastery which was founded around the 7th or 8th century. Access to the island is not easy as it involves a 50 minute sea journey and a climb of 640 steps to the top of the island. However, it is well worth the effort as the settlement is in excellent condition.
