It is close to the village of Waterville but not within walking distance. Waterville itself has several restaurants and pubs as well as a small supermarket on the outskirts. The village is on the Ring of Kerry road so is quite busy with tour coaches. We stayed at the end of September so the tourist season was just coming to a close. I imagine it would be very busy during the summer months. Kathleen's house is spacious, light and airy. It has a well equipped kitchen and utility room. The bedrooms are large and comfortable with lots of storage space. We really enjoyed the beautiful view from the living room. I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this property to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Jane's bakery downstairs supplies croissants, Cornish pasties and much more. Lots of information available for things to do and places to visit, the beaches are wonderful. We had a lovely time, and will return.
