Memorable, a real gem!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is very roomy and is stocked well enough to get by. But the reason for staying here is the setting...it is one of a kind. On a bluff, over looking a lake with a view of the surrounding hills, the cottage has a beautiful lawn and garden, and sheep outside the gate that want to get at the flowers. Be advised, the NARROW, windy 5 km drive in is not to be overlooked when choosing this property. We're glad we chose it and will remember it forever. BB

We celebrated the New Year with family and friends.

  • 5 of 5

We had a full house with 3 families staying. We enjoyed hillwalking and some pubs. We celebrated the New Year with great music and singing. A fun time was had by all, including the younger generation aged 14-22.

Well appointed home in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The home was a great space for our family and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Our kids (5 and 3) loved exploring the yard, playing with toys in the playroom and seeing the sheep wander through the surrounding hills. The home served as a great central location for exploring the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Peninsula. I would definitely recommend the property for families that need space, don't mind being 10 minutes outside of the city and want to cook for themselves.

wonderful home

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans cette belle demeure. Nous étions 8 ( 4 adultes, 4 enfants) . La maison est spacieuse, lumineuse et très fonctionnelle.

Le cadre est magnifique.

C'est une maison que nous conseillerons à nos amis .

fantastische Landschaft - pure Erhohlung

  • 5 of 5

we have liked the cottage very well!

It is simple, but perfect order and tasteful decorated and is really very large for four people, but you can sleep in fife(!) rooms with max. 10 persons + two little childs.

The location is fantastic: quietly with a wonderful scenery and with a view to a beautiful landscape!

We spent very interesting and recreative 9 days in Ireland!

Fine house with a breathtaking view to the lake

  • 5 of 5

You probably like to have a GPS to get there but it is sure worth the trip. The house has all the comfort you wish. We were two families with 5 "big kids" (or rather young adults), and there was room for 2 more persons at least. The parents really enjoyed the ensuite separated bathrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and the room you will enjoy the most is certainly the dining room with a breathtaking view to the lake downhill and even Dingle Bay sea in the distance. It is definitely a remote place so having a car is a must as you cannot make any shopping in a walkable distance, but you will enjoy the quiet environment. And you know what? we had a lot of SUN there (yes Ireland can also be sunny :-)
