5 star location with brilliant views of Kenmare Bay

4 of 5
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.

Amazing Location

5 of 5
The view was spectacular - even though the weather wasn't great for our visit it was amazing to watched the rain clouds move across the bay. Some fantastic sunsets as well. The house was very comfortable, warm, clean and cosy. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you are likely to need when cooking for large groups and the welcome pack was very useful. Nice to know the owners are only next door if there were a problem, but not at all intrusive. It's a great base from which to tour and explore the surrounding area including Sheep's Head and Mizen Head, Bantry, Kinsale, Cork and Cobh. Schull and Barley Cove Bay and were our favourites! I would highly recommend this holiday accommodation.
