Great modern house, number 3 among 5. 1 & 2 are lived in (holiday rentals). 4 & 5 are built, but are shells, I wonder did the builder run out of money. Would be a great project if they ever come up for sale. Watch this space. Back to number 3. Originally we planned on going ourselves, but my younger nieces and my sister came along. 3 adults and 5 children in total. The house is as described, plenty of space for all, big kitchen with dining area, separate living room, enough chairs, enough cutlery and plates and cooking pans etc. Enough hot water! Great water pressure in the showers. Nothing was missing, more then expected! Particularly good, were the black out blinds in 2 of the rooms - the children slept (and slept) there! The owner, David was a pleasure to deal with. I would recommend this house to friends and would definitely stay there again. For my top 5 recommendations for the Ballinskelligs area, have a look at my facebook blog, Martina Corcoran Ltd.

Everything in the house is of a very high standard - the kitchen has all the equipment you could possibly need, the beds, sheets and towels top quality, and the light oak wood flooring and tables and chairs give a natural and warm feeling. The whole atmosphere of the house is spacious and yet cosy and welcoming. John was so helpful during booking, in the weeks leading up to our trip, and then when we arrived - best way to get there, things to see, and how to get the best from the house. We had great meals out locally, lunches and dinners - especially the Smugglers Inn and QC's. Everyone was very friendly and helpful on all our visits around Kerry, and we especially loved travelling around the Skerrig Ring for the views and places to see. Overall we loved our holiday and definitely hope to return.

This cottag is a good location for doind the ring of skellig, ring of kerry, ring of beara, valentia island and dingle. We try to come back one day, because we plan to celebrate christmas there one day. I think this is a real good place for a calm and enjoyable christmas
