Stunning Views and Beach at Doorstep

5 of 5
Wonderful peaceful break in this lovely house by the sea. The photos on the site don't do it justice at all! The beach was by my doorstep and as a winter swimmer I was delighted to have a private beach ten paces away. The house was comfortable and well thought out. I can't think of anything to fault here. I could have spent my entire holiday looking out the window.

Kenmare good centre and great accommodation

4 of 5
The house was a great location for us in Kenmare and we really enjoyed all the facilities in Kenmare. Its about a 15 minute walk ( my husband's pace) into Kenmare or a longer walk around the back lanes. The longer walk along quiet roads gives lovely views out across the bay. Kenmare is a really good centre to explore the area and very good shops and restaurants, having sampled a few and plenty of soda bread, we welcomed the walk back to the house. The house itself was great and suitable for coping with all weathers
