Stunning property!

5 of 5
Where to start!! This house was amazing on so many fronts: firstly, the view from the house was absolutely stunning- looking across at the MacGillicuddy Reeks and Ireland's highest mountain - the view was ever changing; secondly, the house was so well equipped and spotlessly clean - loved the openness and space of the house, great beds and generous bedrooms and a lovely kitchen - very nice indeed; finally, the location was superb. The house was very accessible to Kenmare but also to all the many other attractions that Beara has to offer, such as lovely Gleninchaquin Park, Kilcatherine peninsula, the brilliant cable-car over to Dursey etc.. Definitely one of the loveliest and most enjoyable holiodays I've booked through Homeaway - highly recommended!! We will definitely return! Thanks Margaret and David!

Beautiful cottage in a very beautiful location

4 of 5
Clean and well equipped accommodation. Just a couple of concerns- the water has to be boiled before it can be drunk. It would have been good to know that before we got there as the shop was closed by then! Games, cd's, books are very limited. But beautiful overall.
