Private out-of-the-way modernized cottage with great views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really felt at home at this beautiful updated cottage. We watched whales in the harbor from the dining room table. It is up on a hill so great views of Kenmare bay. The roads getting to the cottage are typical narrow, Irish country roads, so we just took it slow and it was fine. Took us about 20-30 minutes to drive to the SuperValu or Lidl in Kenmare. We purchased bottled water to be safe since the house is on well water, as recommended by the host. The outdoor seating was great, it was clean inside and out. Had everything we needed: laundry facilities, fridge, freezer, range, WiFi, nice bathrooms and bedrooms. Would definitely stay here again if we return to the area. Loved this less touristy area of the coast. Property mangers were fantastic! Thank you!
