Our Story

The Courtyard is a family run business.We live in the original farm house. The original stable yard dates back to 1830. In 1998 Derry and Myra started the process of converting the barns into luxury accommodation in Kerry. Today the result is six lovingly designed stone cottages in a courtyard setting with mature gardens, tennis court, playground and an enclosed barbecue area.

On arrival you will be personally greeted by your host Derry and Myra with a warm welcome. We love meeting people and like to provide a very personal service. A lovely welcome basket is provided in each cottage. We look forward to welcoming you to our cottages.


Our location is perfect for touring Kerry. Blennerville is a rural farming area. In the fields surrounding the courtyard cows and horses graze peacefully in the fields. The Courtyard exudes a sense of relaxation and peacefulness where guests can retreat from hectic pace of life into a cocoon of calmness and serenity. We are close to wonderful beaches and great walks.The Dingle way and Camino are only minutes from the cottages.
