This holiday home has everything you could possibly want in the most stunning rural location. It is very close to a beach and also to Portmagee where you can take a boat tour of the Skellig Islands. We were just two adults but it would be perfect for those with kids as there is a playroom with a snooker table and lots of games for children. I highly recommend a stay in Skellig Villa.

The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The seven of us could spread out and not get on top of each other when we were in. The views from the house were great over Valentia Island where we visited the Skellig visitor centre and walked up to Bray head. We also climbed Carrantuohill, an hours drive away, hard work but worth it for the views. Another highlight was cycling the Gap of Dunloe after taking the boat from Killarney with the hire bikes. It is just worth noting that the roads are not that fast so it can take a while to get places. Would recommend the house without reservation.
