You couldn't have a better location for enjoying all that Kenmare has to offer. The kitchen had everything you needed for your stay. The bed was very comfortable. With a great shower and lovely bath to relax in.

The Manager, Margaret, told me the cottage had been completely refurbished and was just being opened up again for bookings - it is beautiful!! The views from the cottage is over the Atlantic Ocean and they are stunning. The photos on the website just do not do this place justice - its twice as good. The cottage has everything we needed for this to be a memorable holiday and we will definitely be back to this part of Ireland.
