Lissivane Country Cottage, Milltown, Killarney.

5 of 5
We used the cottage as a base to explore the surrounding Killarney area & Dingle peninsular (which is outstanding). The cottage is excellent with superb facilities and equipment. It sits on the side of a valley with views out over rural land, the outstanding surrounding countryside and the nearby hills and mountains. We would recommend the cottage to anyone who is considering using it and we would book this place again. Thanks to Tim & his team for making it such a nice place to return to every evening.

Wonderful stay in Acorn Cottage

5 of 5
We had an idyllic few days in Acorn cottage over the Easter holidays. Jens and Michelle were perfect hosts, the cottage was beautiful, comfortable and spacious and the location is in what must be one of the nicest spots in Ireland. Our children (7 and 5) loved skimming stones in the lake, challenging themselves to take a dip in the bracing water and generally exploring the outdoors. On sunny days, we ventured to the beaches (St. Finian's and Rossbeigh) and the high passes (Ballaghema, Gap of Dunloe) and on rainy days holed up with a fire reading books, playing games and going out for pancakes (Strawberry Field). What's not to like? We will definitely be back...
