                                                            A perfect place

                                                            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the area. The cottage was in a beautiful setting, very well appointed and immaculate and fully met our expectations. There was plenty to see and explore in this part of Kerry and we had some great walks as well as visiting historic sites. Kerford Cottage provides a great base for exploring the Ring of Beara and the Ring of Kerry and the local town of Kenmare offered a good mix of shops and places to eat out. Our hosts were very welcoming and helpful and we hope to return at some future date.
