Dunkerron, a wooded parkland estate on the ring of Kerry is 2km from Kenmare, has beautiful mountain views and nestles quietly on the shores of Kenmare Bay. The houses are set in magnificent parkland and are beautifully finished and excellently equipped.
These exclusive holiday homes are part of the demense of Dunkerron castle, the original 13th century stronghold of the O'Sullivan Mor family.The development comprises 20 detached houses. There are 3 & 4 bedroom options available. The houses which are architecturally designed based on the Kenmare style house which is typical of the area.
The houses are characterised by their steep intersecting dormer roofs, with covered verandah, strong overhanging eaves and Queen Post Roof Truss gables, with finial details to the ridges. This reflects the origins of the style, which was often used on individual lodges in Kenmare and the vicinity. At the same time, they are detailed in a more contemporary manner than their Victorian predecessors, being presented in a simple restrained manner. The interior of the houses are designed to offer interconnecting open plan living accommodation, while the large dormer bedrooms are full of the charm and feel of a true estate lodge.
