Meet your host…

Lovett Family

The Lovett Family have been farming the land for generations and welcoming guests for over 40 years. The old stone farm cottage still exists. Cattle mainly Hereford @ Charolais and sheep namely Suffolk @ Scotch are reared on the farm. There is always lots of work to be done on the farm with the vegetables being sown in spring and silage cutting during the summer months. Many of our guests take a stroll before or after breakfast to the farm, enjoying the panoramic views on the way.

A short but delightful stay! Easy to find, stunning views, cozy and well-appointed rooms! One of our favorites, and we hope to come back and stay a little longer. We arrived late, and Sheila had some very helpful advice on where to get dinner in Kenmare. After an excellent breakfast, Sheila gave a useful driving tip to get us on the Ring of Kerry via a "shortcut". As a result, we got to see some stunning vistas of the peninsula that very few tourists ever get to see!

A beautiful home! Everything was typical Ireland...picturesque, friendly, and cozy. White Heather is in a great location and makes it easy to access Kenmare and the other attractions in the area, like Gleninchaquin Park. Breakfast was filling and yummy and Shelia was a lovely host.

This farm house is situated near a mountain with stunning views all around!!! There were cute little sheep grazing and sleeping under apple trees just outside our bedroom window. We loved it! The house is older and the room can be a little musky on arrival, but opening the windows freshens it right up! Sheila is fabulous and very concerned about tending all her guests needs! We truly enjoyed our stay!
