Excellent! Very well maintained and spotless!

5 of 5
Excellent settings overlooking the Atlantic (Kenmare River) with great sun rises and sunsets. Nice and isolated and very quiet! Even the socked in days were very special in this hide away!

Lovely cottage, great location, definitely be back

5 of 5
The property was great, just as promised on the website - location, decor, furnishings, inside and outside, impressed right from the outset. Had a very enjoyable week-long break with our 2 year old. The house was warm, clean, comfortable, and well laid out. The location is perfect, a couple of minutes walk from the beach and restaurant/shop, and a short drive from Dingle. It's an ideal base for the whole SW Kerry area. We'll definitely be back. Only thing was the wifi was a bit ropey, but maybe that's not a bad thing when I was trying to switch off for a week.
