Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful time our family had at Fuchsia Lodge! There was so much to do... We played golf at both courses, visited the Skelligs and went kayaking at Ballinskelligs Bay – even saw some dolphins!! The property lived up to all our expectations and beyond. We had our breath taken away by the fantastic views from the living room... Amazing! We didn't know Waterville before and are so thrilled to have been introduced to such a magical place - we shall definitely be back!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live in the UK, and my parents came over from America- and we had the holiday of our lives! The house and the views are more beautiful than the pictures on the website can describe. We didn't want to do much sightseeing as the view from the house was so amazing in itself. The furnishings in the house were luxurious as well. It is a very roomy, warm, and comfortable home. The area has some amazing walks and day trips. The boat trip to Skellig Islands were very memorable. There are some wonderful Golf courses in Waterville as well. If I come back to Ireland I'll be staying here again! Caragh was a very helpful and hospitable property owner.

Beautiful and amazing house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It was our second holiday in Fuchsia Lodge and won't the last. The house and the landscape are amazing. This time we spent 2 weeks in the end of winter and it was very stormy and rainy. But the house was pretty warm and you can end up the day in the sauna after some long walks. Everything in the house is well maintained and clean. If you need help or any information you can always ask Mary or Caragh. We will come back.

Great setting in Waterville for a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

A great property with a beautiful view. The home was very clean and updated. It was spacious and everything worked well. The floor plan was great and included everything you would need. The grounds were terrific and we were able to take long walks.

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, clean, spacious home with lots of windows and beautiful vistas. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there was milk and butter in the fridge and wine, jams and soda bread on the counter when we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped. Waterville is an easy walk from the house where we enjoyed the seascape and pastoral surroundings. Being on the Ring of Kerry allows access to diverse vegetation and views. Day trips to Valentia Island and Killarney National Park were well worth the drive. When we travel, we prefer quiet, scenic places and this location met all our needs. We would highly recommend Fuschia Lodge and the Waterville area. John & Lesley from Ontario, Canada

Tranquil Luxury

  • 5 of 5

I usually wince when I see gushing superlatives used to describe a service or product, but this property deserves all I can throw at it. From the obviously design-led & inspired interior, to the magnificent traditional stone exterior, to the stunning views, this house has it all, in spades. Often in my experience luxury holiday properties flatter to deceive, features that appear charming are often twee, locations often have negative features that are not readily apparent, and often fixtures and fittings are not of the first order. Fuschia is the exception to this rule, the Sea is quite literally a stone's throw away, there is a lovely secluded beach (Never busy) 350m walk, it is situated on a charming quiet back road, but yet only 3 km from the bustling town of Waterville, and the ring of Kerry. Beautiful beaches, gourmet seafood dining in Portmagee, Cahirciveen, Kenmare, wonderful walks, and then to relax on the patio with a glass of wine as the sun sets on the bay in front of you... Bliss!

Perfect Start to a Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Driving down the narrow lane to the house was a bit sporty (as I am not used to country roads) but then again so are many other roads in rural Ireland. We arrived too late in the evening to appreciate the spectacular view that I found the next day, which was cloudless, breezy, and breathtaking.

The views from the kitchen and living room lookout across the Atlantic and rolling hills. This was my first time in Kerry and certainly not my last visit, especially to the Fuchsia Lodge.

The house was spotless and the appliances were all modern, easy to use, and in working order. Two bottles of wine waiting for us was a very nice touch.  The house design takes many influences from the history of the area and incorporates that with modern flair, again a nice touch.

The local area has a lot to offer in terms of tourist activities, sight seeing, golf, etc... The local towns of Waterville and Cahersiveen offer many amenities and the people are warm and friendly. My friends and I went into one of the local pubs and there was the after party of a wedding. Even though we were complete strangers and all spoke with an American accent the lovely people invited us to join them while several broke out into songs. It's incredible that everyone knew the words to at least a half dozen tunes. It certainly was a night to remember.

Our host, the lovely Caragh C. provided us with exact directions and met us in person to give us the keys as she was in the area. We are already planning to book for July or August next year.
