'The Stables' is a charming stone building set in the grounds of the larger Westcove House (see separate listing 46960) but offering plenty of privacy for its guests. Originally a working stables for the Westcove Estate and converted in the 1960's, it has been regularly updated over the years, has all modern conveniences and sleeps up to 11 people. For larger groups of people it is an ideal annex to Westcove House – especially for younger guests. The airy open plan kitchen/dining area is fully equipped and is spacious enough for everyone to come together…but there are also enough private spots if you need some quiet time and of course internet access.

The cosy sitting-room has an open fire & comfortable bedrooms will help ensure a peaceful night's sleep. The bedrooms upstairs have lovely sea views over Westcove Harbour & Kenmare estuary. One of the Stable's main attractions its large games room, studio and the small gym/sauna located in its annex. This area can also be accessed from the outside and facilities are shared with guests of Westcove House if rented separately. The studio is a perfect 'den' for young people to chill out, with its comfy sofa, chairs and snooker/pool table. This can be folded away should artists/art groups wish to take advantage of the northern light and the inspiration of the fabulous location. The games room contains a table tennis/football table, dartboard and a selection of other games. This room has stackable chairs making it ideal for classes, talks and other activities. It is of course perfect for parties and we can now arrange a seated, fully catered meal for up to 50 in this very flexible games/function room ..which can then be cleared for dancing to live music or disco !. PLEASE NOTE… We are usually reluctant to let the Stables on its own between May and October until we are sure it is not needed as an annex to Westcove House (46960) and Garden Cottage (101215) which together make a very popular venue for extended family get-togethers and other reunions. However, do check the calendar and contact me as this restriction does not always apply – when we ourselves are staying at Westcove House for instance, the Stables is often available on its own – and we very seldom use the games room! For larger groups needing all 3 properties and sleeping up to 26, please see the listing for the Westcove Estate (101501).
