In the Financial Times magazine ‘How To Spend It’ (December 2019), Lucia van der Post wrote: ’Today you can buy cashmere in Uniqlo, champagne and smoked salmon in any supermarket. Conversely, in travel, the world’s richest seek simple food and an untrammelled wilderness to wonder at. They can get fancy food and 800-thread-count sheets at home. What they want are things rarer still: pure air, silence, starry skies, an absence of social media.”
At Iskeroon, you can enjoy the freshest air, remarkable silence and starry skies: Iskeroon lies within Kerry’s International Gold Tier Dark Sky Reserve As for social media, free wifi is available, but you are under no obligation to use it. And you don’t have to be rich to enjoy these increasingly rare things either – as the guidebook Frommers Ireland says, “This is as good as it gets for this price”
Iskeroon’s incredible location is what makes it unique. Set in 4.5 acres of semi-tropical gardens which lead down to the sea, and our own private pier, you can take a trip to the Skelligs, visit Derrynane National Park, walk along one of the best beaches in the country, swim off our pier, take our kayak to explore the harbour and go sailing and fishing, all without getting into your car.
We offer guests self-catering accommodation in our Guest Suite which is ideal for short stays (minimum three nights) and in our Self Catering Cottage (for lets of 5 days or more).
Iskeroon’s position on the Ring of Kerry makes it the perfect base from which to explore the Ring of Kerry itself – the Skellig Rocks, the Ballaghbeema Pass, Valentia Island, the Beara Peninsula, the lakes, mountains and National Park around Killarney and the Dingle Peninsula are all easily reachable within a day. Situated just two and a half miles off the Ring of Kerry, you feel as if you are 100 miles from the main road, so complete are the peace and tranquility.
The beauty of Iskeroon is that you can do as much, or as little, as you like. If total relaxation and privacy is what you want, you’ll find it here. On the other hand, if you want to be active, there’s plenty on offer.
The accommodation is, we believe, among the very best in Ireland – comfortable, understated luxury with the right balance of simplicity and sophistication. Goose down duvets and pillows, free broadband Wifi, underfloor heating in the suite’s bathroom, digital television, well equipped kitchens, interesting books.
