The location was amazing, looking out onto the bay. We were fortunate with brilliant weather for the majority of our stay, and we made the most of it by seeing as much as possible and doing lots of walking! The house itself was fantastic, very well equipped and warm even on the cold winter nights, the large fire was particularly nice. We have already recommended it to our friends!

Perfect for a family, good feeling of space with an extensive front lawn. Valerie and Brendan are great hosts and always willing to help. Brendan's fishing trips are superb, one of the highlights of our trip. Well equipped and warm, all utilities in good working order. Highly recommend this house.

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.
