Lovely family home in a beautiful location

5 of 5
We stayed at "Cois Farriage" in Ballinskelligs for a week at the end of August for a 3 generation family holiday. It is a lovely well equipped and spacious family home in a stunning location. It is situated in a very beautiful area with lovely scenery, mainly comprising mountains and sea. The Ring of Kerry must be one of the most beautiful areas in Ireland! The local sandy beaches are lovely and were especially appreciated by our 2 granddaughters, aged 4 & 6. Ideal for swimming, building sandcastles, kite flying, etc. There is a castle ruin on the local beach, which we all enjoyed exploring. There is also a Sunday market near the information centre and cafe by the beach car park within a few minutes walking distance. There is plenty to do in the area with exploring, walking, horse riding, a chocolate factory (with free sampling) which the girls loved, bird watching, etc, etc. The 3 family members in the middle generation climbed Carrauntoohil, the highest mountain in Ireland. They were lucky enough to choose the best day of the week for the climb and came back with some stunning photos. Boat trips are available to various places, but the trip to Skelligs is extremely expensive because of the popularity of the "Star Wars" filming connection. A visit to Valentia Island is well worthwhile. We went across by car ferry and returned over the bridge. However, we did get rather wet walking up to the signal tower at Bray Head and had our picnic sheltering in the tower with cows sheltering outside it! The views were lovely though, with a family run cafe nearby. Mary, who looks after the house for Helen, is a star.and looked after us very well. She was most welcoming and informative. "Cois Farriage" is the ideal peaceful retreat to 'get away from it all' and relax. It is especially suitable for outdoor lovers. We would highly recommend this property and would certainly return if we planned another holiday in this area.
