How to Find Us
By Air: The nearest airport is Kerry, 20 minutes north of Killarney and 1½ hours drive from Westcove. Ryanair fly there from Luton and daily from Stansted. Many airlines fly to Cork, about 2¼ hours away: from London (Heathrow and Gatwick), other UK airports and Europe. Shannon Airport is a good 3¼ hours drive away.
By Sea: There is a choice of sailings from the South West of England to Rosslare, on the south-eastern tip of Ireland:-
|Stenaline||Operate two daily 3½ hour crossings (all year) and two daily 1¾ hour high speed sailings (from March to September) from Fishguard.|
|Irish Ferries||Operate twice daily crossings to Rosslare from Pembroke, which take 4 hours, but the driving time from London takes half an hour less than to Fishguard, and their cabins are much more comfortable.|
The drive to Westcove takes 2¼ hours from Cork, 4½ hours from Dublin, and 4½ to 5½ hours from Rosslare harbour.
Other ferry services operate from Scotland and the North of England to Larne near Belfast and to Dublin.
From Kerry Airport drive through Killarney and on to the Muckross Road, thence through the National Park to the top of Molls Gap. Turn right to Sneem and on through Castlecove. After one mile you will see derelict buildings on your left and will reach a cross with a fingerpost sign to Westcove Bakery and Shop. Turn left up a small lane and Westcove Farmhouse is visible to the right.
From Cork take the N22 Killarney Road and follow it until about 10 miles short of Killarney where you turn left for Kenmare. Then follow the signs to Waterville. Ten miles after going through the pretty village of Sneem you reach Castlecove. Then directions as above from Kerry Airport.
