  • Rich History and Natural Beauty: Caherdaniel is steeped in history and surrounded by stunning landscapes. Visit Derrynane House, the ancestral home of Daniel O’Connell the liberator, and enjoy the pristine beaches of Derrynane National Park.

  • Kerry’s finest pub – in our opinion anyway! The Blind Piper in Caherdaniel has excellent food, a fabulous atmosphere, and legendary nights of music, both planned and impromptu.

Sneem (15 minutes away)

  • Village Charm: Sneem (the Irish translates as “the knot” in English so called because it is separated into two squares by a bridge over the rushing Sneem river) is known for its picturesque village atmosphere, colourful buildings, and friendly locals. The village is an ideal spot for leisurely strolls and exploring local craft shops and cafes and restaurants. Take a stroll above into the Sneem woods and visit the Brushwood Studios to peruse artwork from an extended family of local artists and writers.
  • Outdoor Adventures: With its location along the Wild Atlantic Way, Sneem offers excellent opportunities for kayaking, cycling, and hiking. Nearby Parknasilla resort offers fine dining and access to a golf course of unparalleled scenic beauty. Soak away your troubles in a therapeutic seaweed bath (equally enjoyable in good or bad weather!) while drinking in views of the estuary.

The Butler Arms still offers delicious food and nights of music today.
