Luxurious Easter in the Emerald Isle
Large groups looking for an escape with friends or extended family this Easter need look no further than Churchtown House, located in the heart of County Kerry, in the village of Beaufort in south-west Ireland.
The 18th century property – which sleeps 12 people in 6 ensuite bedrooms – has just been completely re-furbished to a very high specification and overlooks the Macgillycuddy Reeks, close to the Killarney National Park.
It is also within the borders of Beaufort Golf Course, and there are another five internationally renowned golf courses within an hour’s drive.
The spacious kitchen is equipped with both a traditional Aga but also has a modern halogen hob and electric oven, two dishwashers and an icemaker.
The extensive south terrace, which incorporates the original well to the house, is accessed via the kitchen garden door, where extensive mountain views can be appreciated whilst dining alfresco.
There are two reception rooms, dining room, games-room (with snooker table) and a home entertainment room with 60 inch TV and surround sound.
All six bedrooms (there are also two additional pull out beds) have free-view TV and Sky channels are available in the morning room and entertainment room.
Wireless Internet is available throughout the house for those who need to keep in touch with the office.
There are glorious, isolated beaches close by, and the towns of Killarney, Killorglin, Kenmare, Tralee and Dingle are also within easy reach, with their wide choice of traditional Irish pubs and restaurants.
Rental of Churchtown House for a week during the Easter holidays costs €3500, which equates to €291per person when fully occupied by 12 people.
