About this home

"Perfect Holiday... Fantastic property, beautifully situated..." ~ Noreen M.

Welcome to Sea View Haven, the perfect place to relax and unwind. Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this modern self catering house on the Wild Atlantic Way and just off the Ring of Kerry and Skellig Scenic Route.

Sea View Haven is located on a 1 acre site with a private garden over looking the Bay area. Situated off a quiet country lane with very little traffic you can take time out to relax and enjoy the wonderful views of the sea and mountains surrounding the house. We think we have the best views in the area taking in all of Reenroe beach with stunning views across Ballinskelligs Bay from Waterville to Hogs Head. And we are not the only ones who think this . Our guests have commented many times too on the wonderful views while staying at Sea View Haven. It was one of the many highlights of their holiday.

"...breath taking views that change hourly" ~ Emma C.

There is plenty to do if you feel like a bit of exercise too! We have quiet country lanes, the Emlagh Loop Walk, Reenroe beach to mention just a few nearby. Great for cycling, walking or jogging. The house overlooks the beautiful Reenroe beach - perfect for walking, safe swimming or making sandcastles. Hiking, golf, horse riding, fishing, bird watching are some of the activities you can enjoy in the area as well as water sports during the summer months. There is something for everyone to enjoy while staying at Sea View Haven.

"Fantastic location to explore the many attractions of the Ring of Kerry. " ~ Stephen

Sea View Haven is an excellent base for you to explore what Ballinskelligs, Waterville, The Glen and surrounding areas have to offer. We are situated just off the Ring of Kerry route, the Wild Atlantic Way and the Skellig Ring Drive. Portmagee and Valentia Island and Caherciveen are also well worth a visit.

This modern home is located in a peaceful and private setting with a secluded garden and away from busy roads and traffic. The living and dining room command panoramic views of Reenroe beach, Waterville and Ballinskelligs Bay. This is the place where you can relax and enjoy the views no matter what the weather.

The modern kitchen is fully equipped with appliances including a Rangemaster cooker, microwave, coffee machine and dishwasher. Views of the Bay can be seen from the living room and kitchen or outside from the private veranda or patio area. On a clear night you get a wonderful view of the stars overhead. The area is part of the International Dark Skies Reserve.

"The cottage is great... we felt at home... We have had a great stay, it’s a magnificent part of the world. ~ Anne C.

Situated on a secluded 1 acre site, 2,000 sq feet, the house sleeps 8 people comfortably. Two of the four bedrooms are ensuite and located upstairs. The large main bathroom is located on the ground floor and has a whirlpool bath and walk in power shower. There are also two twin bedrooms on the ground floor. The utility room is large and comes equipped with a washing machine and separate dryer as well as plenty of storage space for bikes and fishing gear.

Outside there is a lovely private garden with a patio area - a beautiful setting to have your lunch or relax as you enjoy a drink of your choice after a day of exploring. The lovely veranda also offers wonderful views, where you can sit and enjoy the surrounding

country side - sea, mountains and green fields and stars. So just relax and enjoy the superb views - it doesn't get much better than this!

"Lovely evenings looking out at sea in a very peaceful setting" ~ Jill H.

Beaches, shops and pubs are only a short drive away. Sea View Haven is suitable for couples and families - anyone who loves nature, walks on the beach and exploring the countryside. This house is an ideal place to base yourself while you explore and enjoy all that the area has to offer.

On a clear night the stars overhead are spectacular. The area is part of the International Dark Sky Reserve and one of only 3 Gold Tier Dark-Sky Reserves in the World. That means you get to experience an amazing night sky full of stars and all from the comfort of Sea View Haven.

Whether you are relaxing in the living room or enjoying breakfast on the veranda Sea View Haven offers you wonderful views sea and mountains. It is these views coupled with the peace and tranquillity of the setting that many of our guests comment on as being one of the highlights of their trip. In the evening you can watch the lights of Waterville flicker across the bay as the sun sets and enjoy a glass of your favourite drink.

Beaches, Water Sports, Fishing, Golf:

Sea View Haven is just a few minutes drive from the famous 'Wild Atlantic Way'. The beaches in the vicinity are some of the best in Kerry. Reenroe beach is the closest and you can see it clearly from the house. It is only a couple of minutes drive away and is great for walking, surfing, horse riding, fishing, swimming and great for building sand castles too! Surfing classes are held here regularly, during the summer months. The area is great for bird watching enthusiasts.

We are also within easy reach of the wold famous Waterville Golf Links and the newly opened Hogs Head Golf club.

Ballinskelligs beach is another popular beach only 5 minutes drive away. Boats can be hired locally for sea angling trips and there are plenty of operators to choose.

Walking, Hill Walking, Cycling:

There are many local walks and cycling routes of various levels and abilities, all with great views of the country side. Bicycles can be hired locally in Caherciveen and the house has a large utility room/garage area where you can store bikes and fishing rods.

We highly recommend the National Trail Emlagh Loop walk which is easily accessible from the Sea View Haven. On this National Loop Walk you experience the beauty of the countryside, local bog lands and Reenroe beach.

Why not visit the Cill Rialaig Famine Village, Cill Rialaig Artist’s Retreat, and the early Christian ruins of Cill Rialaig monastic settlement with Oratory and perhaps stop off at the Cill Rialaig Art Gallery and Cafe in Dungeagan Village or Barbara's coffee shop in Ballinskelligs for refreshments. There are many other walks in the area, including Bray Tower and Geokaun Mountain in Valentia, details of which are provided in our guide book in the house or from the local tourist office.

Skellig Michael and Star Wars Film

A trip to the world famous Skelligs Rock UNESCO herritage site is a must. This is also a location for the recent Star Wars film. Boats leave during the Summer months from Ballinskelligs and Portmagee - a short drive away.

The Skellig Rock is now also famous for its Hollywood connection. It is in the recently released Star Wars movie

The Force Awakens. You can easily organise a trip locally to this famous rock while staying at Sea View Haven.

Other Local Attractions and Eating Out:

There is plenty to see and do locally. Visit Valentia Island to see the Slate Quarry, Grotto and Light House or try candle making with the kids. Tour the Skellig Ring and the Ring of Kerry. Visit Skellig Chocolate factory in St. Finans Bay (The Glen) and sample their award winning chocolate.

Cill Rialaig pre-famine village is located in Ballinskelligs and Cill Rialaig Art Gallery and Cafe is located in Dun Geagan village which is two miles away. You will be spoilt for choice if you wish to go hill walking or cycling and there are many archaeological sites of interest in the area.

There are plenty of places to choose from for eating out from cafes to pub food to gourmet restaurants. Fresh seafood is a speciality in many restaurants and pubs. Many pubs have traditional Irish music and dancing nights which are well worth going to see.

'Céad míle fáilte' - a hundred thousand welcomes to Sea View Haven! :-)

    Restful Stay!

    Really enjoyed this beautiful home and exploring county Kerry! Close to small villages and especially enjoyed Waterville and all its charm. Was wonderful to relax at this country home after a day of sight seeing. Had some issues with the hot water system, but one call to Maria and a repairman showed up quickly to handle the issue. Overall great stay.

    Cracking spot!

    Fantastic location to explore the many attractions of the Ring of Kerry. Beaches are wonderful with clear waters and huge expanses of sand, especially those at Derrynane and Reenroe. Perfect for the kids to let off steam! House itself is very well equipped, welcoming, and warm. and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Will definitely recommend and return!

    Feel like a Local in Ireland

    We have had a great stay, it’s a magnificent part of the world. The cottage is great and we have left like locals even if it was only for a few days. It was great having such a well equipped kitchen and a fire. We felt at home

    We had a great stay. The house is beautiful. The surrounding towns and scenery is amazing. The showerhead in the master en suite was broken. I would highly recommend getting a timber climbing frame with swings and slides for kids as the garden is big enough and would encourage families to stay. We would 100% saty here again but only if the garden had some kiddie facilities to keep them busy on a sunny evening. Thank you.
