The house is situated next to the monastic site of Kilmalkedar, nestling at the bottom of the Pilgrim's Way. Sheltered from the worst of the weather the house is surrounded by trees and farm land. The gently sloping beach at Smerwick Harbour is a 20 minute walk and can be seen from the house. Fishing trips and golf are available within a 10 minute drive.
