                                      Lovely and comfortable cottage situated in an ideal location to explore the delights of Kerry

                                      4 of 5
                                      There were nine of us in our party when we stayed at Skellig Bay cottage in June 2016 (6 adults, 2 children and a toddler). We were very lucky as the weather was exceptional, which allowed us plenty of time to bathe on the beautiful Derrynane Beach which is just a 10 minute drive from the cottage. There is plenty of other things to see within walking distance of the cottage itself, for example the old fort just up the lane and the secluded cove which is about 400 meters in front of the cottage as the crows flies. However it’s still a 20 minute walk to get to it following the road. The cottage was perfect for our stay, there was plenty of room for us all to be together or have our own space and the facilities were great. It is laid out in a modern open plan style and is tastefully decorated. The beds were really comfortable and we never struggled with heating or hot water for showers and baths. Sitting out on the terrace of an evening as the sun goes down is delightful and we often ate our tea outside, using the BBQ as well. Our only minor complaints about the place was at times we had to wait for cold water to come through the taps, the lock on the main bathroom door kept getting stuck (locking people inside) and the absence of a parasol outside. Apart from these minor observations everything else was very good. We did however find the refuse a bit tricky to manage having only been given one normal and one recycling bag for a full week. That said, everything else we needed was very well catered for. We would highly recommend Derrynane Beach, followed by a spot of lunch in the Blind Piper. The anti clockwise drive from Waterville to Killarney is stunning and Valentia Island and Portmagee is worth a visit.

                                      FANTASTIC LOCATION & PROPERTY

                                      5 of 5
                                      Just back from a fantastic week in Tom & Sheila O'Shea's fantastic holiday home. Everything that was listed was supplied and more with it. The views from the house were excellent lovely walks, very nice safe beach just a short walk or cycle from house. The whole property inside and outside was spotless. Tom & Sheila gave us all local information on where to visit , dine etc. etc. We will definitely be back in this property in the very neat future and would highly recommend the house and hosts to anybody considering it. Our only regret was leaving.
