Winter Weekends

Whether you are golfers, walkers, artists, bridge players or just friends and family getting together for a celebration, we are offering off-season weekends for groups of 10-26.

For €150 per person you will stay at Westcove House (and The Stables and/or Garden Cottage depending on numbers), from any Friday pm – Sunday pm. This offer includes 2 nights B&B and one home-cooked dinner.

Arrive any time on Friday, enjoy a full Irish breakfast on Saturday, spend the day exploring this fascinating part of south Kerry – guided tours can be arranged – lunch at one of the many welcoming local pubs … then relax in front of the glowing log fire until Katherine calls you in to the elegant dining room of Westcove House for a delicious evening meal.
After dinner, we can arrange for local musicians to entertain you in the House – or Bernie could bring her band and get you dancing in the games room!
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast/brunch on Sunday morning, leaving you enough time for a stroll on Derrynane beach or a more challenging hill walk before your departure.

Wines and Spirits: We do not stock any alcohol on the premises, as we are not licensed to do so. There is quite a good selection of wine available in local stores, but if you are a large group taking advantage of our Catering Options, we suggest you contact VG Wines, an excellent wine merchant based in Kenmare. Their website,, offers a comprehensive selection of wines to suit all tastes – and budgets! Delivery to Westcove is free on orders of one case or more. Spirits are very costly in Ireland, so we suggest you bring your own!
