About Jer Foley

Kenmare Rentals is the most recent addition to our family business. Owning and managing O'Donnabhain's Bar & Guest House for many years, we have seen an opening for Self Catering / Holiday Homes as many of our initial guests who are staying with us for the last few years, are spending longer periods here, and it is another alternative.. We have also realised that it can be more cost-efficient and often more convenient for guests who are visiting Kenmare for longer periods of time, to make themselves at home in one of our Self Catering Holiday Homes . If it is your dream to spend a week in a Holiday Cottage in Co. Kerry, then we can make that dream come true.

In recent years, we have therefore newly built or carefully restored, and lovingly furnished and fitted out a small number of Self Catering properties in or near Kenmare town. The properties were designed and finished to our own high standards of comfort and requirement for space, and will truly offer you a home away from home. Kenmare is an ideal base to explore, the South West of Ireland . Co. Kerry, with the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, and the Gap of Dunloe on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful Ring of Beara in Co. Cork, which starts in Kenmare.

Jer Foley purchased this cottage in 2008

Best location in Kenmare

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic cottage located literally a minute away from the Main Street in Kenmare and it’s still a lovely quiet residential street. Everything you could want if you’re visiting Kerry. We keep returning and always book Carrig Beag.

Fantastic location and an ideal property for any type of break in Kenmare.

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week away in Kenmare and stayed in Carrig Beag. It was a great property ideally located just 2 minutes walk from Henry St and yet in a very quiet area of the town. It was equipped with everything one could possibly need, immaculately clean and had a private parking space behind the house. We’ll definitely book Carrig Beag again.

Short stay in lovely Carrig Veag

  • 4 of 5

We spent a number of days in October in

Carrig Beag. The house is centrally located within walking distance of all amenities . There is a very spacious kitchen/dining room with all mod cons. The house heats up very quickly which makes it very comfortable and relaxing . The bedrooms are spacious with a large onsuite n the master. Off street parking is a definite advantage. The proprietor Jer is a most kind and accommodating gentleman . He showed us great kindness and generosity during our stay which is greatly appreciated. Should you visit Kenmare, Carraig Beag is an ideal location.

Angenehmes Haus, ausgezeichnete Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren bereits zum dritten mal im Carrig Beag. Wir schätzen das wohnliche Haus, die Lage, die Nähe zu den Restaurants und Geschäften in Kenmare sowie den guten Service sehr. Kenmare bietet eine ausgezeichnete Ausgangslage für unterschiedlichste Ausflüge im Südwesten von Irland. Gerne kommen wir wieder.

Great Break Away

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cottage set literally two minutes walk to the centre of town yet in a very quiet area, perfect for a break away. The property is very well equipped with every modern convenience and private parking. We will definitely stay in Carrigaline Beag again.

No hot water

  • 3 of 5

The best thing about the property was its location - ideally placed for exploring the rings of beara and Kerry and for popping into town for a meal/drink.

The main problem was that the boiler wasn't working. With the help of Jer we limped through the week until it was finally fixed the day before we left.

Other comments:

the kitchen cupboards contained random bits of food. It is helpful to have basics only e.g. salt and pepper, but there was so much stuff it was hard to get ours in.

for the price we would have expected everything to be up together e.g. various bulbs not working, lampshade missing.
