Loop Head sits on the peninsula of the same name, which was named the Irish Times’’ “Best Place to holiday” winner in 2013. The peninsula is scattered with little beaches, meaning there’s lots to do and explore. The Feather Down location itself is a Responsible Tourism Silver Award winner in the category of best small accommodation provider. Loop Head specialises in yoga and sauna sessions, and a lovely community feeling permeates the environment. It’s south-facing and overlooks the Shannon Estuary with its native woodland in the foreground.

The lodges are sited in an orchard permaculture garden with two natural ponds for biodiversity and fruit bushes dotted all around. The dramatic Kerry Mountains dominate the views to the south and lush woodland is all around. Let your children’s imaginations run wild in the “children’s den”, a big tree that children have decorated and made their own. Exploring the farm, you’ll meet Lizzie and Scamp,  lovable and child-friendly dogs. Donkeys Betty and Jack will contentedly munch food from your hand, and Old Dubh (Gaelic for black) the cat often sits with guests. Hens, the cockerel and  Monty the pony – when he is back from the local riding centre in April, Sept and Oct – complete the friendly menagerie.

Loop Head are finalising their own walking maps so you can begin roaming the area right from your doorstep. Querrin Shore shingle beach is a 20-minute walk away, and is great for swimming at high tide. At low tide, walk to the “island”, a Natura 2000 designated Special Protected Area (SPA). Here you can find curlews, oyster catchers, herons and egrets. The peninsula offers great whale and dolphin watching too. The perfect sandy beach, Glasheen beach at Doonaha, is only 4 km away.

For a fun family meal, book the pizza oven and Kevin will help you with your first pizza. Excellent eating and drinking options are also to be found at Murphy Blacks, the Strand Bistro, The Long Dock in Carrigaholt or Keatings Bar in Kilbaha. Alternatively, enjoy fresh seafood at the pier of the neighbouring village. You’ll certainly have built up an appetite after participating in horse riding, trekking, biking or water sports, all available here. There is a festival every month in summer until September too, celebrating everything from seafood, walking or families to one of Trea and Kevin’’s own specialties, yoga.
