Ballinskelligs, County Kerry, Ireland
Whether you are relaxing in the cottage or enjoying breakfast on the patio, Atlantic Rest Cottage offers you wonderful sea and countryside views.

The cottage is just off the Wild Atlantic Way route and the Skellig Ring which is famous for its scenery and coastline. The beaches in the vicinity are some of the best in Kerry. Reenroe beach is the closest - just a short walk down the lane. This beach is over a mile long and is great for walking, running, surfing, horse riding, fishing and swimming with good sand for building sand castles too! Surfing classes are held here regularly, weather permitting, during the summer months.

There are also several other beaches within easy reach of Atlantic Rest Cottage including Ballinskelligs Beach and Meeligoleen Beach.

Reenroe Beach is a great spot for anglers for bass fishing.

There are many local walks and cycling routes of various levels and abilities, all with great views of the country side. Bicycles can be hired locally in Caherciveen.

We highly recommend the Emlagh Loop walk and Reenroe Cliff Walk which is easily accessible from Atlantic Rest Cottage. This is a National Loop Walk which takes you though the countryside and along Reenroe beach.

The Bolus Head walk in Ballinskelligs has fantastic views overlooking St. Finan’s Bay and the Skellig Rocks. Along the way you will visit the Cill Rialaig Famine Village, Cill Rialaig Artist’s Retreat, and the early Christian ruins of Cill Rialaig monastic settlement with Oratory and perhaps stop off at the Cill Rialaig Art Gallery and Cafe in Dungeagan Village or Barbara's coffee shop in Ballinskelligs for refreshments. There are many other walks in the area, including Bray Tower and Geokaun Mountain in Valentia, details of which are provided in our guide book in the house or from the local tourist office.

Skellig Michael and Star Wars
A trip to the world famous Skellig Rock UNESCO heritage site is a must. This is also a location for the recent Star Wars film. Boats leave during the Summer months from Ballinskelligs and Portmagee - a short drive away.

The Skellig Michael Rock is now also famous for its Hollywood connection. It is in the recently released Star Wars movie The Force Awakens. You can easily organise a trip locally to this famous rock while staying at Sea View Haven.

Other Local Attractions and Eating Out:
There is plenty to see and do locally. Visit Valentia Island to see the Slate Quarry, Grotto and Light House or try candle making with the kids. Tour the Skellig Ring and the Ring of Kerry. Visit Skellig Chocolate factory in St. Finans Bay (The Glen) and sample their award winning chocolate.

Cill Rialaig pre-famine village is located in Ballinskelligs and Cill Rialaig Art Gallery and Cafe is located in Dun Geagan village which is two miles away. You will be spoilt for choice if you wish to go hill walking or cycling and there are many archaeological sites of interest in the area.

There are plenty of places to choose from for eating out from cafes to pub food to gourmet restaurants. Fresh seafood is a speciality in many restaurants and pubs. Many pubs have Traditional Irish music and dancing nights which are well worth going to see.

A stay at Atlantic Rest Cottage is an excellent way to sample the delights of what Ballinskelligs, Waterville, The Glen and the surrounding areas have to offer. You will not want to leave!
