Lovely cottage, set in beautiful scenery, fully equipped. We enjoyed a peat fire one evening.

5 of 5
Great place to stay to enjoy everything that Kerry offers. Very helpful owners. Lovely beach nearby for walking and swimming. Lots of galleries and cafes to occupy us during occasional showers. Cycled to nearby villages. Would recommend this cottage for families and adults who enjoy peaceful rest, amid beautiful countryside. There are also lots of places to visit including the Skellig Islands, Killarney National Park, cliffs and beaches.

Our beautiful Holiday at Skellig Bay Cottage in Waterville

We had a very nice stay at Skellig Bay Cottage. The house is very generously cut and very nicely furnished. The view is fantastic. We felt very comfortable.
