The location was amazing, looking out onto the bay. We were fortunate with brilliant weather for the majority of our stay, and we made the most of it by seeing as much as possible and doing lots of walking! The house itself was fantastic, very well equipped and warm even on the cold winter nights, the large fire was particularly nice. We have already recommended it to our friends!

The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The seven of us could spread out and not get on top of each other when we were in. The views from the house were great over Valentia Island where we visited the Skellig visitor centre and walked up to Bray head. We also climbed Carrantuohill, an hours drive away, hard work but worth it for the views. Another highlight was cycling the Gap of Dunloe after taking the boat from Killarney with the hire bikes. It is just worth noting that the roads are not that fast so it can take a while to get places. Would recommend the house without reservation.

Dishwasher unusable due to having no rubber seal therefore flooded kitchen. TV not working properly had an election to sort if unfortunately that didn't last long. Also had to have a plumber and he found live wires on the tank upstairs. With a 6 year old that could be dangerous also found the shower door had been put on upside down in the main bedroom just as well there was no accidents with a child. The plumber said that he would make a report.A little bit of care an attention would not go a miss. Like curtains / blinds looked into. A few adjustments would make an awfull lot of differences. Also a welcome pack might be an idea especially as some people may turn up late. It's a fabplace to stay. The truth is the truth if you don't wish yo post that that's your problem
