Mermaid Isle is located off Ireland’s South West coast, on the tip of Co. Kerry.

Its position in a natural harbour sees the property surrounded by clear waters, which are home to seal colonies and dolphin pods.

The estate is located near the village of Sneem and the Ring of Kerry.

A Facebook page set up to publicise the property described the estate as, “A resort-like oceanfront retreat for creative people, naturalists, lovers, a place to spark the imagination, reopen your senses and rekindle your love of life.”

Owner Kevin O’Farrell, speaking to the Irish Post said, “we consider the primary asset of Mermaid Isle is its secluded, sheltered oceanfront mainland location.”

“Our island, just offshore, keeps our cove flat calm regardless of the weather. The two passive-solar homes, perfectly integrated into their environment and just steps from the shore, allow us to intimately observe the seasons, weather and interplay of wildlife, including seals, dolphins, otters, seabirds, invertebrates and fish.”
