Kerry but more so, we recommend staying at this property.. The owners are so lovely and friendly, and couldn't be more helpful. The property is clean and tidy and has every you could need from kitchenware to bedding. Its such a lovely quiet area and that's what we needed, but only about 5 mins drive to nearest shop/post office and across the road from that is The Inbetween (public house/restaurant) - such friendly owners there too, as well as great food! The house is only about 10-15 from the town of Kilorglin and Killarney (opposite directions) There's so much to do here, we usually packed a picnic in the morning and headed off til late evening (with 4 children all under 5) They had a brilliant holiday, as did we. We are from Co. Derry and this holiday/stay was well worth the travel. We will definitely be back in Co. Kerry and we will definitely be back to stay here too!

The Manager, Margaret, told me the cottage had been completely refurbished and was just being opened up again for bookings - it is beautiful!! The views from the cottage is over the Atlantic Ocean and they are stunning. The photos on the website just do not do this place justice - its twice as good. The cottage has everything we needed for this to be a memorable holiday and we will definitely be back to this part of Ireland.
