About Edward Kelliher
I live in Ireland with my wife and children. This holiday home was built in the last few years. We decided to build in Kerry because of the beautiful scenery, mountains and lakes and also because of its proximity to the sea. We, as a family, spend a lot of our free time there.
Edward Kelliher purchased this House in 2008
Why Edward Kelliher chose Beaufort
I chose to build in Kerry because it's my native area and my family and roots are there. Over the years and because of travelling, I had come to appreciate far more what my own native area had to offer in terms of scenery, a peaceful and relaxing location and healthy leisure activities.
What makes this House unique
I find the property is an ideal base for discovering not only the Killarney area but the whole Kerry region and the beaches, lakes and mountains are easily accessible. The towns with their entertainment and festivals, such as Tralee and its Rose of Tralee festival, are within short driving distance.

Beautiful house in rural Kerry
This is a beautiful four bedroom house in rural Kerry just outside Killgorglin. We had expected it to be in Beaufort village but it is about 5km to the west.
The pictures show the house as it is and there was nothing to fault with the house at all. The owners met us at the local pub and guided us to the property and explained everything we need to know. Great TV and Wifi. Great location for touring Kerry and Cork. Try Quinlans and Bianconi in Killgorglin for dinner - great alternative to the chaos in Killarney. If you are a golfer - Beaufort Golf Club is a hidden gem.
Thank you for your generous review of the the house and of the facilities in the general area. We were glad to make your acquaintance and to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. You are welcome back any time.
Wonderful family visit
Beautiful views at house and we enjoyed our stay. You do need a rental car when staying here. Restaurants/pubs in Beaufort only serve food on weekends during first two weeks in May. Lots of room in house for family. Killarney around twenty minutes away with plenty of pubs, restaurants and groceries.

A slice of Irish country life.
We stayed here from 8/12 - 8/16/18. This house is a lovely, spacious, elegant and well-maintained house. The Kellihers were gracious and helpful. The house is in a rural area, 20 minutes out of Killarney, which was part of its charm. It felt like we were actually living in Ireland, rather than in the busy downtown area.
My two sons and I stayed here, but the house could easily have accommodated more people.
We would absolutely stay here again. Thank you to the Kellihers for a truly unique and memorable experience.
Thank you for a lovely review of your stay with us, of the house and the general area.We enjoyed our conversations with you and I am trying to improve my knowledge of the different States in the USA ever since. You will be most welcome if you wish to return to stay with us anytime in the future.
