There is a large room for hanging out in when the weather is not so good (only one day of our stay, thankfully). The house is well maintained. There were a couple of issues while we were there but the owner responded promptly and appropriately. The gardens are large and it is in a quiet area. Picking blackberries in the local lanes was popular and we made a couple of crumbles. We saw a hare on the lawn on the first day. The house looks south over the beach at Ballinskelligs, and it is possible to walk there (on roads with no footpath). However we drove down to the other end of the beach where there is free parking, facilities and a cafe. The sand is fine, the beach is clean, and gently shelves. There are no currents as it is a sheltered bay so the swimming is safe. We explored to Valentia and also further south, and took a longer trip which included the must-see Ballaghbeama Gap road (off the R568, which is the most rugged pass I have ever driven). However, we didn't have the need to go much further as the local area around the house is so picturesque. We did the Bolus head loop walk near Keel, with great cliff views. It's worth exploring the back roads to Keel as you get different views of the Skelligs. We had a pizza on the last night at the Artist's place at the end of the lane, and were treated to an impromptu performance by a visiting choir. Great acoustics! And a visit to the village pub on their music night was another high point. For takeaway pizzas through the week, the Spar at Cahiverseen (park behind the garage) is great. When driving down on Saturday afternoon we hit some massive traffic jams on the N21 west of Limerick, as there are some small villages with no bypass. We found our way on back roads to Listowel, but it might be worth taking the N69.
