STAY AT 26 FORELANDS KENMARE CO KERRY

4 of 5
THE HOUSE WAS EVERYTHING WE NEEDED FOR OUR SHORT STAY IN KENMARE. THE ONLY COMPLAINT I HAVE IS THAT THE BED IN THE EN SUITE BEDROOM IS VERY CREAKY AND MADE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO HAVE A DECENT NIGHTS SLEEP AS IT MADE A NOISE EVERY TIME ANYONE MOVED A LIMB. MORE DETAIL NEEDS TO BE GIVEN AS TO WHICH BIN SHOULD BE USED FOR WHICH WASTE MATTER, ALSO OTHER PEOPLE IN THE AREA WERE USING THE BINS FOR THE HOUSE WE HAVE VISITED KENMARE BEFORE AND AGAIN THE TOWN AND THE VIEWS OF THE COUNTRYSIDE DID NOT DISAPPOINT AND THE AMAZING WEATHER WE HAD MADE IT EVEN MORE SPECTACULAR
