Comfortable cottage in a peaceful scenic location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable week at this cottage. The weather was pretty good by Irish standards but there was a cold wind. The cottage was comfortable, clean, cosy and warm. The kitchen was well equipped and the whole place was light and bright. The little front porch was a real sun trap, we enjoyed relaxing there in the late afternoon/ evening looking out to sea watching the light changing on the hills beyond. It really is a short stroll to the beach, 6 mins down the lane and 8 mins back, not a steep climb back at all. There are so many beautiful places to visit within a fairly short drive, this was an excellent base for seeing the sights of the ring of Kerry and to relax after a god days walking. Many thanks Noreen for your advice on routes, shopping etc both before we arrived and during our stay. If we are lucky enough to visit Kerry again we will be back!

Beautiful cottage and magnificent location

  • 5 of 5

Mont Bretia Cottage is a really superb cottage, with a lot of space for a family of four and even for six persons. The listing description is absolutely correct with regard to every aspect. We did not find a single point to criticize, the cottage is very well-maintained. Central heating and warm water supply, powered by an oil-fuel burner, are very comfortable, fast and easy to use. For those with more romantic ambitions a vast amount of peat is waiting to be burned in the fireplace. One feature we liked very much is the sunny patio where it becomes very soon very warm provided that the sun is shining.

We would like to recommend Mont Bretia Cottage to everyone who just wants to spent relaxed, house-based holidays or to those who want to discover the fascinating South-West of Kerry - or a combination of both.

Especially we woukd like to recommend visits of Bray Head and Glenleam Subtropical Gardens on Valentia Island, the Darrynane Park at Caherdaniel, the Muckross Pensinsula forest and lake shore in the Killarney National Park, and - if possible due to weather conditions, personal fitness, and the other visitors' rush - day trips to the Great Blasket Island from Dunquin, Dingle Pensinsula, and of course most of all to Little Skellig and Skellig Michael from Portmagee.

Wonderful and Perfect Holidays in Kerry

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely cottage during the first 2 weeks in July 2009 with 2 adults and 2 teenage children, whilst everybody enjoyed the quiteness and also long evenings at the fireplace with enough peat for free. We have especially enjoyed the irish hospitality and the warm welcome of the Owners. Reenroe Beach at short distance was always reachable for a nice and enjoyable walk. Cahersiveen with it's shops, restaurants and pubs may be easily reached by car. Mont Bretia Cottage was an ideal place to stay for all travels along County Kerry, Ring of Kerry and it's different nice sights. Provided you have good, most suitable sunny weather and aren't seasick, don't miss a boat-trip to the Skellig Islands with it's numerous puffins and other sea-birds, starting from Portmagee (which we recommend, please apply for 2 - 3 days in advance directly at harbour) and finally enjoy a dinner in The Bridge Bar nearby the harbour.

Thank you for these nice 2 weeks. We should return as soon as possible.

On special request also in German Language:

Wir, eine 4-köpfige Familie mit 2 Kindern im Teenager-Alter haben in diesem wundervollen Cottage die 2 ersten Wochen im Juli 2009 verbracht. Besonders haben wir die Ruhe sowie die langen Abende am Kaminfeuer genossen. Torf als Brennstoff gab es umsonst. Die Besitzer haben uns sehr angenehm mit warmer, irischer Gastfreundlichkeit empfangen. Reenroe Beach, nur eine kurze Distanz vom Haus entfernt lud zu regelmässigen und ausgedehnten Spaziergängen ein. Cahersiveen mit seinen Läden, Restaurants und Pubs lässt sich leicht mit dem Wagen erreichen. Mont Bretia Cottage war ein idealer Startpunkt für Tagesfahrten rund um das County Kerry, den Ring of Kerry und die verschiedenen schönen Sehenswürdigkeiten. Vorausgesetzt es ist gutes, möglichst sonniges Wetter und man wird nicht seekrank, sollte eine Bootsfahrt zu den Skellig Inseln mit seinen niedlichen Papageientauchern und anderen Seevögeln auf jeden Fall auf dem Plan stehen. Am Besten man startet von Portmagee aus (was wir empfehlen, bitte rechtzeitig 2 - 3 Tage vorher am Hafen anmelden) und beendet den Tag mit einem Abendessen in The Bridge Bar direkt am Hafen.

Danke für diese 2 wunderschönen Wochen. Wir werden sobals als möglich wiederkommen.

Our party was three adults a two year old and baby. The property was perfect. Enclosed garden very safe for two year old, Reenroe beach a short stroll down a quiet lane and possible with a pushchair. Reenroe beach a little wild for swimming for us but great for sandcastles and walking Ballinskelligs beach which is a short drive (5/10 mins) away good for a dip. House itself was really nice - not sure photos fully do it justice! Very comfortable, very clean and everything you might need provided. Ring of Kerry on your doorstep as is the Skellig Ring both of which are beautiful. Pretty isolated so woudl need a car. We did manage to walk back from local pub one of the evenings which took about 40 mins (bring a torch) but there are local taxis available.
