Suantra Cottage, stay for family of 5

5 of 5
Cottage was cosy, clean and well fitted out. We had just the right amount of space for a family of two adults and three children. Great views from all around the cottage and a lovely loop walk starting just across the road takes in two nearby beaches. Philomena was very welcoming and happy to answer all of our queries and gave us useful local advice.

Stayed here early July with family. A great base to explore the best of Kerry and even Cork. First class facilities and very helpful and pleasant home owners. Recommended for a holiday to remember 👍
