                                                            A beautiful town house. Modernised with excellent facilities- dishwasher, washing machine, dryer etc. Was immaculately clean. Appreciated the milk, cakes, tea and coffee on arrival. Also washing powder and dish washer tablets provided. The basins in the bathrooms are very small, I imagine a man would struggle to have a shave using them. Very conveniently situated, an easy 5- 10 mins walk to the town centre, although it is on a fairly busy road and there is some traffic noise. Didn't bother us, but it's not a particularly picturesque location. Good off street parking at the rear. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.

                                                            Have you ever wanted to pack all your home comforts and take them on holiday with you ? Well there is no need when you book Blarney House. Where do I start the quality of fixtures and fittings is superb from the living area, Kitchen and the bedrooms. The kitchen has everything you need to selfcater easily we loved the coffee machine especially. The house is spotless and Valerie goes out of her way to assist with any requests you might have. We have travalled all over the world and can honestly say we didnt want to leave after the week we spent here. The location is spot on 5 mins into the town and local supermarkets and the view over to the mountains makes this rental a holiday to remember. I wouldnt hesitate to recomend Blarney House to anyone wanting a quality self catering vaction. Thanks Valerie for everything Claire and family

                                                            Great central location; top quality property

                                                            We regularly stay in holiday homes in Co. Kerry and the quality of this particular property is exceptional. The house is spacious, bright with natural light, spotlessly clean and finished with the best of fittings and furniture. The decor is modern and tasteful, fabrics for curtains, blinds and bed linens are all top quality. The kitchen is fully equipped with everthing you could need, the bedrooms are all equally roomy and beautifully presented, and the bathrooms have good quality fittings, lots of fluffy towels and plenty of space and light. A personal meet-and-greet and tour of the property by Eimear dealt with any questions we had on arrival. The house is located about three minutes' walk from the Jarvey stand in the heart of Killarney, making it a short walk home after evening dinner or from the pub - no need for a designated driver to stay sober! The famous MacGillycuddy's Reeks are visible from the front windows, and the town and the shops, bars, street music and dance, and walks in the park or by the lake can all be easily explored on foot, though you'll need transport to tour further afield. This house guarantees you a luxurious base from which to explore - the rest of the holiday is up to you!
