It is close to the village of Waterville but not within walking distance. Waterville itself has several restaurants and pubs as well as a small supermarket on the outskirts. The village is on the Ring of Kerry road so is quite busy with tour coaches. We stayed at the end of September so the tourist season was just coming to a close. I imagine it would be very busy during the summer months. Kathleen's house is spacious, light and airy. It has a well equipped kitchen and utility room. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with lots of storage space. We really enjoyed the beautiful view from the living room. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

The cottage was well equipped, comfortable and very 'easy' to live in. The kitchen was well equipped with plates and cups etc and cooking items and the cooker was efficient, a bonus was the dishwasher. The wifi was perfectly usuabke for emails and social media use and a DVD player was available, I would suggest that you take some of your own favourite films, the collection at the cottage was not a kRge as some other places we had stopped. We have stopped in the area on numerous occasions so knew what to expect from local amenities, but we were sunrises at how well placed the footage was for access to local pubs,cafes and restaurants the nearest being only 15 minutes drive away. Communication with the owner and caretaker was very good and reassuring to know that someone was on hand if there were any problems, of which we had none. The peace and quiet and the fantastic vista made this the perfect place, whilst not being totally isolated either. We plan to return and holiday at Springwell sometime soon.
