                                                              Anniversary stay!

                                                              From the minute we arrived at Scairbin, we fell in love with the cottage and the area….the pictures on this website simply do not do it justice. We were absolutely delighted with the size, style and layout of the accommodation. It is split level, bedrooms and kitchen on lower level and the lounge on the first floor up wooden steps - the views from there are fabulous –hills and greenery…just beautiful. We were very blessed with the weather and so were able to enjoy the scenery at its best. You can also see the sea from the lounge which was a wonderful surprise. There is an open fire which is very cosy at night and I loved sitting on the rocking-chair reading and looking at the views. There is also a flat-screen TV and a fast wifi connection (which wasn’t listed on the website)..although we couldn’t get the DVD to display the picture properly. The large glass windows in the roof let a lot of light in and are wonderful to see the stars if you are fortunate enough for a nice clear night. There is a little balcony from the lounge with chairs which is a sun-trap. The cottage itself is well furnished, cosy and tastefully decorated – the main bedroom has a lovely wrought-iron bed and on-suite and the other two rooms are equally nice with pine furniture and fittings. The kitchen had everything we needed (although the microwave was a bit temperamental!) There is also a small snooker table and a fuse-ball table for the kids as well as many books and games. It was very quiet and peaceful and perfect for a romantic get-away or a family holiday. The area itself is fabulous – just a few minutes drive away from a lovely beach and in easy reach of many others…we enjoyed driving round the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Peninsula and we also had a fun boat trip to Skellig Michael (now famous for appearing in the new Star Wars film!) – we recommend to go with Gearoid Moran – book at the Moorings Hotel, Portmagee….we also recommend you take sea-sickness tablets…it is VERY choppy out there!!! Waterville is only a 10 minute drive away and Cahersiveen is about 20 minutes and there you will find lots of nice shops, places to eat, a Supa-Value supermarket and the cheapest petrol we found in Ireland! All in all we had a fabulous time staying at Scairbin – thank you Bernie and Albert for sharing your beautiful house with us, we really didn’t want to leave, it made our 22nd wedding anniversary very special and we hope one day to return!

                                                              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

                                                              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!
