We received the warmest of welcomes from Cathy who had lit the log burner ( this property is exactly 'what it says on the tin ! ) : see the photo here. Beautifully positioned with outstanding views & easy access to the beach ( & some stunning coastal walks) . We were sent some very helpful info before our stay . Despite being so close to the 'Ring of Kerry' main road we didn't hear ANY traffic noise. The house works very well for a family & we had my elderly parents with us ( ground floor en-suite was perfect for them : & great views from the bedroom too !) . Open plan living downstairs works well for family group on holls .Very comfortable beds & all furnishing ideal for holiday home comforts. Caherdaniel shop is lovely & very well stocked ( loved the 'library' there !) Thankyou very much Cathy : on hand next door but thankfully we didn't need her .

                                                                                                      Lovely spacious and cosy cottage (very effective underfloor heating) with great views from large French windows. Hurricane-proof too (Ophelia struck during our stay)..! Friendly, helpful owner. Less than 15 mins drive into Kenmare for pubs, restaurants etc and only 25 mins into Killarney National Park. Ring of Kerry road 5 mins. Didn't manage to get the driveway lights working and a few bulbs missing or not working (outside light, cooker hood, extractor fan etc). Had we mentioned these relatively minor issues at the time I'm sure Patrick would have sorted for us but we didn't so that's our fault. If we find ourselves in these parts again we would book again without hesitation. Internet worked well. Ring of Kerry golf club next door too. Detached, private, peaceful. Flat-screen TV would be nice. Very enjoyable all-round.
