Full description:

One of the most impressive coastal properties in Ireland. A magnificent contemporary castle situated on the edge of the Kenmare estuary.

An Culu is a truly unique property situated on the shore of Kenmare Bay commanding some of the most beautiful panoramic views over the bay and beyond to the Caha Mountains.

The castle has been built to the most exceptional specification with impressive characteristics such as castellations and turrets surrounded by a magnificent moat with a drawbridge providing access to the property. Dense woodland surrounds the castle providing a high degree of privacy, whilst the water of the Kenmare estuary laps at the shore of the property's southern boundary.

Internally, the castle has been finished to an exceptionally high standard, with light and well-proportioned rooms, the majority of which benefit from the spectacular views. Throughout, the castle boasts superb quality hardwood fixtures, utilising the delightful properties of Cherry and Oak and further enhanced by the use of stone for the impressive balustrades, ceiling paintings and intricately detailed plasterwork, cornicing and wall linings. The bathrooms are beautifully fitted with a variety of marble and excellent tile finishes. Additionally, for increased convenience, there is a lift system providing access to all floors.

Although the castle inspires impressions of magnitude with its imposing castellated elevations and turrets, it is a delightfully comfortable family home. The accommodation is ideally arranged for entertaining in a luxurious style, but with the relaxing surroundings of the beautiful interior design and the additional facilities of the magnificent 'grotto' style swimming pool complex. The property is approached via an impressive stone entrance, which leads to a meandering driveway through the forest to a parking area at the front of the castle.

OUTSIDE
The castle is surrounded by a moat and is approached from the drive over a drawbridge beneath a castellated archway to a courtyard with lanterns and a circular tower.

There is a delightful terraced seating area to the south of the castle with spectacular panoramic sea views.

To the north-east of the property is a garage and garden store and to the north of the property on the far side of the drive is a large rock face with cascading waterfall.

The grounds are flood lit, further complimenting the garden, which comprises mature specimen trees and is surrounded by woodland and Kenmare Bay.

Location

An Culu is situated on the ''the Ring of Kerry'' one of the most attractive coastlines in Ireland, close to the delightful market town of Kenmare, with its numerous restaurants and five star hotels. Kenmare is in the extreme south west of Ireland, but at the same time very accessible with Kerry Airport 68.5km distant with daily flights to Dublin and London. County Kerry is arguably the most beautiful of Ireland's counties and has long been a popular destination for those from Ireland, Britain and overseas.

There is great opportunity for the country pursuits enthusiast, including excellent fly fishing on the nearby waters and lakes and in particular on the renowned Kerry Blackwater and Lough Currane near Waterville and of course, sea fishing in the Kenmare estuary of the Atlantic. The Ring of Kerry 18-hole golf course and the 18-hole golf course within Kenmare are both accessible. There are further top-ranked golf courses at Ballybunion, Killarney and Waterville.
