Things to Do

A walk along the lane is most enjoyable as the evening sun settles your views on the islands in the bay and the cottages nestled in the hillsides beyond.

A swim in the bay is refreshing as the water temperatures are not Caribbean. The water is so clear; with goggles you can scout underwater life.  On occasion, you might see a seal out beyond your path watching your stroke. Don’t be surprised to see women of all ages shimmying out of their suits on the beach under the protection of their towels and dressing again before leaving.  It is totally private, after all.

If you really want to explore the undersea life, explore the south shore of the Bear Peninsula in Castletownbere about a one hour drive from Kenmare. www.bearadiving.com. On our first trip there we also toured the Art Center

A day out at Gleninchaquin Park is for climbers, birdwatchers, botanists and photographers.  The walk routes around the waterfall make it accessible for all.  The river walk, our favorite, takes you into the sights and sounds of nature. www.neidin.net/gleninchaquin/index.html.

The water is a great draw for boaters and fisherman.  In season, fishing off the Bridge and the banks of the river outside of town is commonplace.  A cruise on the bay on the Seafari which sets off from the Pier will introduce you to the nature along the shores as well as the wildlife, especially the seals in a most enjoyable way. If you would enjoy a private tour log onto www.kenmareanglingandsightseeing.com Water sports center offers sailing and canoeing in the Bay just 5 minutes away at the Star Sailing Club.  www.staroutdoors.ie  For divers the Kenmare Bay Diving Center is nearby. www.kenmarebaydiving.com

If you are a golfer who enjoys walking the course, Kenmare Golf Club is a perfect spot.  Scheduling a round is easy as most days are not crowded. The 100 year old club set along the river has many events during the golf season which can be viewed on their website, www.kenmaregolfclub.com.  If you prefer to ride in a cart for a round of golf, then the Ring of Kerry Golf and Country Club is for you.  Set on a hillside across the Bay from the cottage, it is a 20 minute drive door to door.  A beautiful course with views everywhere, you can schedule your round at www.ringofkerrygolf.com.

Horseback riding along the Bay or up in the hills is available at Gleninchaquin Stables in Templenoe across the Bay.  Lessons are available there also only 15 minutes from the Cottage.

If you enjoy walking the hills and valleys with experienced walkers with local leadership the Kenmare walking club is the group to contact. www.kenmare.net
