Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi James,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I was away for a few days.

We had a ball at Skellig Cottage. The weather was shocking so we got great use out of the house. The layout was fabulous. Everything was spotlessly clean and anything we needed was there. We even made use of the barbeque (in very extreme conditions).

We enjoyed it so much we were thinking of heading back there again for New Years Eve, if its available.

Thanks again for everything James. I'll be in touch re New Years Eve at a later stage.

Photos do not do it justice

  • 5 of 5

Exceptional home. Have to see it to really appreciate it. Within walking distance to town. Approximately 35 minutes but along the ocean on the Kerry Way. Stay here, you will not regret it.

Absolutely stunning cottage and location!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage and surrounding area is a piece of paradise! The pictures don't do it justice! It was the most peaceful, beautiful place I have ever been to! The property is perfect, built with a lovely view from every window, with panoramic views of the bay and fields of sheep and cows behind. I sat out every evening watching incredible sunsets and listening to the gentle hush of the sea and the bleating of lambs! It is close to Loher stone fort, a secluded beach, 8 minutes drive from Waterville village (but set in a quiet secluded area out of town). Everything you need is provided including washing machine, dishwasher, great selection of books, music, binoculars, TV, Dvd's, comfy beds and spacious accommodation with plenty of storage. The house and surrounding area is so beautiful, and within easy reach of many destinations including Portmagee and the Skellig islands, Kerry's spectacular cliffs, Killarney and other stops along the Ring of Kerry. We couldn't have asked for more and definitely plan to return! In fact if this house was for sale I would buy it!!
