Overview

About the property

Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, conservatory.

Skelligs House has got four bedrooms, three baths, a living room, a kitchen – where one finds hardly anything to desire, a utility and last but not least, the most beautiful conservatory. (A friend of ours who had difficulties with the term used to call them “aquariums for old people” but I assure everyone – young people will like it there too. When I first saw the house in the beginning of June 2008 I was enthused right away. It is a bright, spacious, friendly house with spectacular views. Located near the Ring of Skelligs, which for me is even nicer than the Ring of Kerry, it overlooks the Atlantic and the Skelligs (Here Skellig Michael). The Ring of Skelligs is much smaller, much more Irish and - best of all - no buses can go on it.

Skelligs House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of seven spent two peaceful nights at Skelligs House as part of our travels around Ireland, and we all wish we could have spent more time to spend there. The view is possibly even more stunning in person than the photos suggest. Due to the seclusion of the house traveling to and from takes some time, so plan on spending some time enjoying the beautiful scenery, and give yourself plenty of time to arrive. We absolutely recommend going on the Bolus Head hike.

The house was clean, spacious and the kitchen was well stocked. Two things to be aware of: we didn't realize the house didn't have wifi available so be prepared to unplug, and the first morning we ran out of water for a period of time due to the amount of showers and a load of laundry running so go easy on the water supply.

Margitta was wonderful to communicate with and very helpful. We definitely recommend spending a few days relaxing at Skelligs House.

Ein gemütliches, einladendes Haus mit einem tollen Blick auf das Meer.

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren als eine Gruppe von 4 Ehepaaren, einem Sprinter mit Anhänger und darauf sechs Motorrädern zu Gast. Die Anfahrt zum Haus war eine gewisse Herausforderung, insgesamt jedoch machbar. Wir haben das Haus als einladend und freundlich, sauber und ordentlich angetroffen. Der Blick auf das Meer war grandios. Auch bei etwas vermehrt regenerischen Wetter konnte man sich sehr wohlfühlen, in kühleren Zeiten war der Kamin gut nutzbar. Für die Selbstversorgung waren alle Utensilien vorhanden. Uns hat es allen sehr gut gefallen.

Idyllisches Cottage mit guter Lage zum Erkunden der Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage ist wunderschön gelegen und bietet einen traumhaften Blick auf die Skelligs und den Atlantik. Das Haus empfiehlt sich nur für Gäste, die gerne Auto fahren, da viele Ausflugsziele mit einer längeren Fahrt verbunden sind. Der Kontakt und die Abrechnung waren sehr unkompliziert und sehr freundlich. Die Räume im Haus waren alle sehr gepflegt und sauber und die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet.

Owner's Response: Schön, dass es Ihnen so gut gefallen hat. Ja, die schönsten Plätze liegen weitab vom Schuss und man muss viel fahren, aber wie auch Sie, nehmen wir das ja alle gerne in Kauf für die Aussicht und das Licht und die Stimmung.

optimale Lage, perfekte Betreuung

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Cottage war für mich der optimale Ort, um meinen 60. Geburtstag zu feiern. Zwei Wochen genossen wir dieses tolle Haus.

Wir waren für vier Tage zu sechst in diesem Haus, was mit drei Bädern überhaupt kein Problem war. Das 4.Schlafzimmer ist als Kinderzimmer zu verstehen, da es über keinen eigenen Schrank verfügt.

Die Ankunft erfolgte, wie telefonisch besprochen, der Schlüssel würde stecken, so war es auch. Mary war immer erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit! Die Küche mit sehr guter Ausstattung und vielfältigen Gewürzen! ! Die Abrechnung absolut korrekt. Unschlagbar der Wintergarten mit dem phantastischen Blick auf die Skelligs und Pufingisland! Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Tankstelle sind mit einer 30 minütigen Fahrzeit verbunden, d.h. ein Fahrzeug ist erforderlich. Würde das Cottage jederzeit wieder buchen!

phantastischer Atlantik Blick auf die Skelligs

  • 5 of 5

Das Cottage übertraf unsere Erwartungen! Wir waren für einige Tage mit 6 Personen vor Ort, was bei 3 Bädern überhaupt kein Problem war. Das 4.Schlafzimmer ist als Kinderzimmer zu verstehen, da es über keinen eigenen Schrank verfügt.

Das Wohnzimmer mit offenen Kamin war sehr heimelig,die Küche perfekt ausgestattet, habe noch nie so eine Auswahl von Gewürzen vorgefunden, einschließlich Kaffee, Tee, Olivenöl, Essig,...! Unschlagbar der Wintergarten mit dem phantastischen Blick auf den Atlantik und Pufingisland!

Die Übergabe des Cottage war, dass Mary uns telefonisch mitteilte, der Schlüssel würde stecken, so war es auch. Das Haus war sehr sauber und Mary überaus hilfsbereit.

Wandermöglichkeit direkt vor dem Haus zu eindrucksvollen Klippen, mit Blick auf Skelligs !

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten mit 20 Minuten Fahrzeit verbunden. Man braucht ein Fahrzeug.

Habe hier meinen 60. Geburtstag gefeiert und hätte mir keinen besseren Ort vorstellen können! !

Würde das Cottage jederzeit wieder buchen!
