Fabulous Property

5 of 5
This is our second stay in this wonderful house, but this time we took our family. There is plenty of room with 4 beds and 4 ensuites. The photographs don't really do justice to how large the house is with space for everyone's different requirements. The cleanliness of the property is beyond reproach and the bed linen and towels are spotless. The kitchen is briliant to work in as it is so well stocked and everything you could possibly need is to hand. The area where the house is situated is perfect with only a handful of similar properties. It is within easy reach of Killarney and all local attractions. We had a really amazing holiday other than a car problem which Eileen helped us deal with. Eileen is extremely efficient and helpful and is just a phone call away. We will be back to this perfect holiday home. Sheila Hilton
