Guestbook comments from the owner

I'd like to join the choir of praise! They are not exaggerating, I can vouch for that!

My friends and I, we were seven adults, planned a trip to Ireland and Killarney area for a week. We found this house through Home away and we are super happy that we choosed it!

The house is very nice, comfortable and has a warm feel, you can see that the owner has an eye for quality and details! We never felt that it was small or cramped.

You need a car to get around, but, if you have one it's a great location. Killarney is a good half hour away, Killorgin, 10 and Glenbeigh 5! There are good restaurants and pubs (some of them has live music in the evenings) close by (you need a car though). Not far away there are shops where you can buy your groceries.

The locals are incredibly nice and friendly and love to have a chat. You can easily travel alone and have a wonderful time without being lonely!

Then we have the owner, Marcella! Wow, what a wonderful person she is! Marcella met us completely spruced up in an evening gown! She gave us great tips and ideas on what to do and see, she even sent messages during the week letting us know that there was a great artist at the pub one evening! I have never felt so welcomed by anyone outside my circle of friends!

We LOVE Kerry and we loved Marcella's house!

  • 5 of 5

This house has so much SPACE! We were on week 5 of a six week vacation and boy did we appreciate the space! The house is gorgeous and the rooms are large. The kids used the dining room area as their game room. The kitchen has a large table that seats six so we did not need the dining room for eating. The living room was very big and comfortable. The kids pulled the curtains closed at night and had "movie night" with the large flat screen TV. Two of the bedrooms have their own bathroom with was nice for grandma. She didn't have to share with anyone. The location is right off the Ring of Kerry. It was easy to go out touring and find our way home. Did I mention that the house has a large, full-sized, refrigerator, a washer and dryer? We all loved this house! It had all the comforts of home. We would love to stay there again when we return to Ireland. Kindly, The Bosshardt Family

Awesome stay for large family

  • 5 of 5

We had a awesome time here and really enjoyed the house and property. The house it self is very well maintained with all the comforts of home. Loved the large kitchen for entertaining and very comfortable bedrooms. After being on the road for a while this was a nice space to get back to normal. Location is great as well for visiting the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and other near by areas.

We rented this lovely home for two full weeks and had a wonderful stay. I have stayed in many vacation rental homes and this one is exceptional. It feels like a 'home' versus a vacation rental. It is warm, comfortable, and well decorated just as you would do in your own home. Marcella is a fantastic host, very kind and caring. This home provides a quiet retreat after a day exploring or provides a roomy, comfortable place for staying in should you desire. It is very close to many beautiful places. Our personal favorite was Rossbeigh Beach; incredible and only about 5 minutes away. We went there several times during our stay and felt lucky to be there during the winter when the beach was not crowded, and the Atlantic always puts on a great show, whether peaceful or wild. Everything was well-provided, kitchen had everything (and I cooked at home a lot), the whole place was spotless, and we slept well. I am so grateful for owners who rent beautiful, clean places at affordable prices. Great place, great host, highly recommended.

Beautiful, roomy, clean with lovely view

  • 5 of 5

This home was more space than 2 couples needed but all rooms we used were comfortable and roomy. Great base for touring the area including the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Penninsula We visited local pubs and restaurants and enjoyed good food and trad music. Kitchen was well equipped and washer and dryer were great to have. This would be a great spot for a large family getaway. Marcella is a friendly and cordial hostess.

Riverview is located 4 kilometers from the village of Glenbeigh and is nestled above the famous Ring of Kerry.

A big attraction of this village is the superb blue flag beach ' Rossbeigh ' with wonderful views across the bay to Dingle mountains. This beautiful unpolluted beach provides excellent conditions for swimming, walking and bird watching. There is a newly appointed safe clean playground for children of all ages and a basketball court.

More walking, climbing and fishing can be found at Blackstone Bridge and Caragh River,the river is only a short 10 minute walk from the house.

Caragh Lake is a beautiful expanse of water 4 miles long providing more stunning scenery in its setting among broom and heather covered hills and imposing mountains.

Riverview house is an ideal base for touring whether its Killarney National park and Muckross House, Ring of Kerry, Dingle or you may just fancy some horse riding on Rossbeigh strand,the hardest part of your day will be deciding what to do.

Golf: There is no shortage of Golf courses in Kerry with numerous courses to choose from such

as Killarney , Beaufort, Ring of Kerry, Ross , Castleross, Waterville , Dunloe ,Killorglin and of course

Dooks Golf course an 18 hole course which is only a 5 minutes drive from the house.
