                                                          We had a great time in this cottage. All was clean, warmwelcome und the kittchen was well equipped. 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

                                                          Smashing holiday in Ballinskelligs.

                                                          We had a really lovely holiday in Ballinskelligs. Thanks in no small part to this real gem of a house. We were made to feel really welcome and it quickly felt like a home from home. And so quiet at night - just us and the stars! The house has plenty of room and has all mod cons. We really appreciated the effort that was made to make the house so very 'small kid' friendly. The kids loved the big garden. It was great to be so near the beach and within easy reach of Cahirciveen. Enjoyed brick-oven pizza at Cill Rialaig. Derrynane is worth a day trip and the fish and chips from the van are pretty good. And the chocolate factory, of course. Would love to go back there next summer!

                                                          Perfect accommodation and perfect location. There is nothing that could be done to improve this house and situation. A little bit of "heaven on earth".
