Guestbook comments from the owner

We are a family of five (children aged 12, 8 and 6 ) and we stayed at this lovely home. Even though there was a lot of rain last summer, it was a perfect vacation. The neighbours were very friendly. The view was fantastic, the home was really nice, with excellent showers and very quite surroundings.

This home has everything for a perfect getaway to relax and enjoy family time. It was difficult to leave the gorgeous surroundings when the 14 days were up! There was plenty to do for the children. They loved walking, crabbing, fishing and watching the cows go past. Days in were just as good as days out.

The home was easy to find and so lovely. Will definitely be looking to stay here again.

Thank you for a wonderful time!

Comfortable house in excellent rural setting

  • 5 of 5

Our home for a week was better than I imagined. Very comfortable arrangements. Great sleeping. Easy to cook. Efficient laundry facilities. We loved the country/bayside setting. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Long walks down winding lanes. We met a local farmer and his sheep. Highly recommend this house for a holiday. Lots to see and do on Beara. Thanks, Maureen and Hannah. We felt very welcomed.

Fantastic Views in a wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Ardgroom. Why go to the Ring of Kerry when you can stay in a quieter, serene environment on the Beara Peninsula? The house was fully equipped with plenty of room. We felt warm and snug even on one windy night. We were made to feel most welcome. I have no qualms in recommending this wonderful place.

Amazing views and house

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property the views are stunning. Ardrgoom is a beautiful place.

We were lucky to have a heatwave for a couple of days we also had bad fog but all the changing weather with that view is fantastic.

Getting up to see the sunrise and walk down to the pier in the evening to see the sunset is amazing.

The house was spotless and very comfortable everything you need and the owner and Hannah were extremely friendly and helpful.

I would definitely recommend this house the views are out of this world.

Thank you Maureen & Hannah.

A tranquil haven

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a week's stay in Maureen's beautiful house on the Beara Peninsula. It was even better than we had hoped. The house is absolutely gorgeous, and kept in immaculate condition thanks to the caretaker Hannah, who we met on arrival and could not have been more helpful. It is a very spacious and comfortable house, with every gadget and amenity you could wish for. The views from the huge windows are spectacular. The house is quite remote which means there is not a sound to be heard apart from the occasional sheep in a nearby field - bliss! There are very many marked walking trails in the area, with remarkably little traffic on the roads. We were unlucky with the ever-changing weather, but even in dull weather, Beara is magnificent. There are many little towns to visit (don't miss Dursey Island), and it was always a thrill to return to Maureen's comfortable house at the end of the day. Highly recommended.

We LOVED it!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wish there were more stars... !!! We had a perfect week at Maureen's Place on the Beara Peninsula! The location is just amazing, sitting atop a hill overlooking the Bay where mussel beds lay in the water below, while mountains all around change character with the time of day and weather. Drives around the Ring of Beara far surpass the views and sights (and traffic) of the Ring of Kerry... Healy Pass is breathtaking! The house is so beautiful and absolutely immaculate! (Thanks to Hannah, the local caretaker, who takes such pride in making it welcoming and spotless.). The joy of coffee in the morning sitting at the patio table and listening to utter peace and quiet, looking out at the water and mountains.... Ahhhh, such bliss! The house is extremely well stocked, and The kitchen was wonderful... Sufficient cooking utensils, bakeware, pans, etc.... It is stocked for those who love to cook, and makes it so fun to "play house" for a week. We have been to Ireland 14 times in 14 years, and we would list this accommodation among the top we have ever had. Maureen was very friendly and helpful throughout the process. Loved dinner at Mullins Village Inn in Ardgroom since Mullins is my family name. One more hint.... Be sure you have lots of memory on your camera chip... You will need it to capture the house, view and wonderful area!
