                                                                                                      We stayed at Wild Cherry Cottage from October 15th to October 22nd in a group of four adults one teenager and three children. The property owner provided us with a map of how to locate the property which when read properly is spot on. In general when you are privileged enough to have any holiday time in the Kingdom you tend to spend as much of your time out experiencing the local sights and locations which are there in an abundance. While at the Cottage we spent 7 out of 8 nights dining in at the cottage preparing our own meals in the kitchen and enjoyed family time together. There is a large stove in the sitting room and a wide selection of DVD's for the children to watch, our group ended up watching "Cheaper by the dozen 2" over and over. While staying at Wild Cherry Cottage we managed to see Glenbeigh, Inch Beach, Portmagee, Dingle,Killarney, Sneem, Waterville, the cliffs overlooking Skelig Michael, Ross Castle, Muckross house and gardens, the Torc Waterfall, Molls Gap, the Conor Pass....the trip was very dramatic for one of our guests who had arrived from Denmark where the landscape is rather flat and featureless. We were blessed with good weather during our stay, I can only imagine it during a hot summer. We set out to find the Kerry Cottage experience and we believe that this is what we found. The property is in a secluded private area off the beaten track on the Dingle Peninsula. Each day we popped down to Inch beach for a long walk, there really is nothing like it. The property was presented as advertised, if the Kerry Cottage experience is what you are looking for then we feel that Wild Cherry Cottage lives up to that. We would like to thank the property owner Nick for allowing us to stay in his Cottage and will pass on our recommendations to friends and family for future reference. The only thing that I would warn any guest about is the Speed Camera Van that hides behind a wall in Faha doing it's best to shoot fish in a barrel. While driving in the area drive UNDER the speed limits as they will skin you alive given half a chance. Note I publish www.thefinest.ie and the free monthly paper The Finest based in Tipperary. I spend quite a bit of my time reviewing businesses, restautrants etc. Thanks again Nick!

Our family loved the cinema room, the table tennis, the space and the coffee shops and restarants on the doorstep... Literally!

Perfect for a family, good feeling of space with an extensive front lawn. Valerie and Brendan are great hosts and always willing to help. Brendan's fishing trips are superb, one of the highlights of our trip. Well equipped and warm, all utilities in good working order. Highly recommend this house.
