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!

Dishwasher unusable due to having no rubber seal therefore flooded kitchen. TV not working properly had an election to sort if unfortunately that didn't last long. Also had to have a plumber and he found live wires on the tank upstairs. With a 6 year old that could be dangerous also found the shower door had been put on upside down in the main bedroom just as well there was no accidents with a child. The plumber said that he would make a report.A little bit of care an attention would not go a miss. Like curtains / blinds looked into. A few adjustments would make an awfull lot of differences. Also a welcome pack might be an idea especially as some people may turn up late. It's a fabplace to stay. The truth is the truth if you don't wish yo post that that's your problem

                                                                                                  Situated in a beautiful part of the Kerry peninsula, and away from the tourist buses, Innisfree is a large house with great facilities for groups or big families. 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.
