Full description:

Character, style and architectural ingenuity combined! This is what's on offer in the beautiful area of Ballinskelligs. Sean Mike's is located on the Wild Atlantic Way, an area of great natural beauty where the gulf stream provides a gentle temperate climate. Enjoy some amazing views of Ballinskelligs Bay on the Ring of Kerry. The nearby town of Waterville has two world famous golf courses and the Skellig Rocks are just a few miles off the coast where part of The Star War movies were made. St Finian's Bay famous for watersports and Portmagee, a beautiful fishing village are within a very short drive.

An eclectic mix of roof shapes, soaring internal spaces and eye-catching quirks galore, this remarkable 2,900 sq ft contemporary house, designed by Michael Williams, blends unobtrusively in the peaceful and beautiful Kerry landscape with inside dimensions and architectural qualities that belie the subtle exterior design. It is not surprising that it featured on t.v. on "About the House", and in various magazines. Named after the owner of the original cottage, Sean Mike Sullivan, the 200 year old structure is now partially inside the main building.
