Ballyheigue, County Kerry
This former school house has been lovingly restored to provide luxury self-catering accommodation for 6 to 8 guests while retaining the historic character of the building. Situated on Kerry Head, along the Wild Atlantic Way, 4km from Ballyheigues Blue Flag beaches, golf courses and traditional pubs there are spectacular views over Tralee Bay and the Dingle Peninsula. Described as one of the top ten Irish holiday hideaways by the Irish Independent newspaper, the Old School is an ideal location from which to visit the many attractions along the Irish West coast.
