Valerie gave us a warm welcome and all the essential information on the house. She left us with plenty of maps and brochures so we could plan our weekend. We were all very impressed with the house - very spacious and spotless with all the features of a modern house. Without delay we headed off on a 2 hour walk to the ancient forts and the beaches nearby. The following day was taken up with visiting the grotto on Valentia and walking from there to the lighthouse and back. The next stop was to the very impressive Kerry Cliffs near Portmagee. Then on to Reenroe beach for a refreshing walk before heading back to the house and getting ready for a meal in Cahirciveen and a play in the hall in Filemore. Sunday had a slow start with Mass and later a visit to 'the Rock', a viewing platform within walking distance of the house. Action packed and really enjoyable! Thank you Valerie for your kind hospitality!!

The cottage is close to the main house but it has a private back garden and Sue and Gary are so lovely and welcoming without being imposing. We felt like we had the whole farm to ourselves. The weather was gorgeous when we were down. But I would recommend the cottage for summer or winter. It's at the end of the road so there are no neighbours. Plenty opportunity for hiking and walks. The town is a good walk away. Not too far if you have the time and enjoy walking. We felt like we were in a world of our own which was exactly what we were looking for. The drive to Killarney from the cottage is absolutely beautiful and easily accesssible. The best thing about the cottage is that it has everything you need. From things as simple as salt, pepper and toilet paper to baking trays and delicious farm fresh eggs. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be visiting again.
