Places to stay rarely come as unique (or as quirky) as this gorgeous thatch in Kerry.
Right, thatch cottages are pretty common on Airbnb (there’s plenty of lovely ones, along with loads more alternative accommodation in our where to stay in Ireland hub).
But this is the first time that I’ve ever seen a proper old-school thatch with a hot tub. Yep, a hot tub. G’wan – scroll away. You’ll find everything you need to know below.
Quick note: Accommodation in Ireland seems to be constantly booking out at the moment. This place has availability at the time of writing (Aug. 1st) but it looks to be booking out fast.
A Thatched Cottage in Kerry (with a hot tub)
If you recognise this place, you may have come across it in our guide to the best Airbnbs with hot tubs in Ireland.
This gorgeous thatched cottage is located in Cordal, in County Kerry. There’s bags of traditional rural charm here with a cosy fireplace and slate flooring throughout, whilst the red Aga style stove and Belfast farm sink add to the country ambience.
With three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it sleeps up to seven people. The hot tub, which is located on the outdoor terrace, is big enough for around four people.
How the host describes it
‘As you enter through the traditional Irish double door, you are greeted by a beautiful rustic stone fireplace and soaring ceilings.
All floors are gleaming pine and slate. The hearth room is probably the most typical with its cosy hearthside bench.
The adjoining sitting room is a great place to curl up on the sofa and read while enjoying the views of the emerald green hills.
This sofa also folds out to accommodate two guests. Enjoy the TV and VCR from here as well. There is a bedroom off this room with a double bed and Gothic coat press (armoire), a perfect place for clothing storage.’
Cosy, quirky and roomy
The interior of this thatch is nice and cosy, which will be ideal on those wet and windy days that Kerry tends to get on the regular.
You can chill by a blazing fire and chat with friends or you can whack on the tele and chill with a movie after a day of exploring.
How much a night will set you back
I popped in 3 nights (there’s a 3-night min stay) in September for 6 people sharing (there are limited dates left by the looks of it!). It worked out at:
- Total: €581
- Per person: €96.83
- Per person per night: €32.27
