About Us

“Ivy House” Self Catering, clad in luscious green ivy that thrives in our mild Atlantic climate, is located along the Promenade on the sea-front in Knightstown, just a stone’s throw from the water’s edge! This holiday home is of historical and architectural importance because of its link with the transatlantic cable. Thus we endeavour to maintain it in the highest traditional standard of excellence. The local restaurants, pubs and shops are just a 7 minute walk away. Boats hired for Angling and to the Skellig Islands depart from the main pier close by. “Ivy House” Self Catering is renowned for its spaciousness and well laid out interior with a wonderful panoramic view of the harbour laid out in front of you! Its peaceful relaxed atmosphere is ideal for a holiday whether it’s just for a short few days or a week or two.
