Exactly as described and more

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage, perfectly maintained and spotlessly clean. Has everything you need. Stunning location. This was our second visit and as before Margaret was a fantastic host, nothing too much trouble. We will be back again.

Sehr schön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit zwei Erwachsenen und drei Kindern eine Woche in der Wohnung Kerford 1 und haben die Zeit dort sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist sauber und geräumig, sehr gut ausgestattet und der Blick über die Kenmare Bay wundervoll. Außerdem haben wir in der Nachbarwohnung eine sehr nette Familie kennengelernt und die Kinder konnten im Garten toll miteinander spielen.

In 8 km Entfernung hat man in Kenmare alle nötigen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Aldi, Lidl, Supervalu) und die Geschäftsstraße ist irisch-schön.

Comfortable Cottage with excellent views

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained, beautifully clean and comfortable cottage with everything we needed for our week on the Beara peninsula. Lovely welcome from Margaret for whom nothing had been too much trouble before our arrival. Our online shop from the Supervalue supermarket in Kenmare was a success and arrived minutes after us. We enjoyed excellent walks in the surrounding area in spite of the variable weather. Had 3 super evening meals out in Kenmare. Everyone we met was very welcoming and keen to strike up conversations. The only negative thing about our stay in the area were the midges who prevented us from sitting out in the evening.

Idyllic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Had a very comfortable and pleasant stay at Kenmare Cottage. Cottage was spotless and in a lovely peaceful location with lovely view and everything there to make our stay comfortable. Owners were very friendly and helpful. Five stars all round and we hope to visit again in the future. Only downside was the misty weather (which we were told was most unusual) so could not enjoy the splendid view from the cottage to the full. Hope to have better luck next time!

A quiet and peaceful setting with one of the best breathtaking views overlooking Kenmare Bay, the MacGillycuddy Reeks and Caha Mountains. Situated 7kms from Kenmare - known as the jewel on the Ring of Kerry, one of the most attractive towns in Ireland, which bustles with over 30 restaurants, bars and craft shops and a host of activities for your enjoyment. Touring the surrounding areas from Kerford is a pleasure not to be missed. The famed Ring of Kerry with its breathtaking views is complimented by the equally majestic Ring of Beara. Short enchanting drives to places like Gleninchaquin Falls, Cloonee Lakes, Dereen Gardens, Healy Pass, Glengariff, Garnish Island and the Caha Pass will all leave lifelong memories. Kenmare boasts an excellent 18hole golf course and also the Ring Of Kerry Golf and Country Club. Fishing the many rivers and lakes, or even deep-sea angling, will prove to be rewarding. Our cottages are on the Wild Atlantic Way so if you are doing the journey we are a good destination for the South West part of it.
