All We Could Hope For

5 of 5
We spent 84 nights here and everything about the property was wonderful. Well furnished, well equipped, comfortable furniture and beds. Perfectly situated at the marina in a village halfway around the Ring of Kerry. Ideal location for exploring the Iveragh Peninsula. Margaret, the mother of the landlord, lives next door. A delightful woman, she could not possibly have been more solicitous or caring. Try as we might, we have absolutely nothing to quibble over. Loved our three month Irish home!

Excellent Holiday Home

5 of 5
The house is spacious, bright and spotlessly clean with all 'mod cons' and is an ideal holiday home for a large group (there were 9 of us - 4 adults and 5 children). We all enjoyed the freedom of the place with its big lawn in front and the secluded peaceful garden in the back. Rumour has it that this part of the Kingdom of Kerry was the last place on earth that God made but the first place that He blessed. He had a lot of material left over so He used it to create the beautiful mountains that one can see all around the local countryside. From Castlequin house you can see one of these mountains - ''a thing of beauty =, a joy forever''. Valerie, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful and is a very, very nice lady. I cannot be loud enough in my praise of the place and would recommend this holiday home to all and sundry. Thanks for letting us stay there. Dan
