Why Valerie chose Killarney

We choose this holiday home primarily because of its location and generous size,within the Kerry region. There are lots of beautiful areas in Ireland but Killarney and Kerry have beauty in abundance and the town of Killarney is very pretty indeed..We have been visiting Killarney for over 20 years and really like this majestic region which has spectaular scenery and world renowned beauty. It was easy to decide on this home due to its great location directly across from the lovely Lakes of Killarney and the magnificent Killarney National Park & Muckross House which are all within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because it was spacious enough for all our family, was in a fabulous location and was also fortunate enough to have a bar and restaurant practically on site just next door. The leisure facilities up the road 500 yds away also attracted us because it meant the children and adults alike had access to a pool and we really liked the fact we could walk out the door across to the National Park for cycling and walking. Being less than five minutes to a lovely vibrant town means we enjoy Mountain & lakeside location with plenty entertainment and restaurants within five minutes.Also we felt when it rains in Ireland as it does tend to do, you have to be near activities to keep both children and adults entertained which we can do from our base in Killarney so easily. We find families enjoy our home because we have equipped it with all the conveniences you would need at home such as Upgraded hi-speed Wifi and Satellite television and a phone service not always available elsewhere. As we use our holiday home ourselves and are not absentee homeowners ,nor we do not employ anyone to manage our home for us, we do take extra care & interest in our holiday rental. We like comfort when travelling so we have tried to ensure everything you will need is readily available for your self catering holiday in our home by the Beautiful Lakes of Killarney.

Great house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

La maison est superbe : bien décorée, propre, calme, bien située. Les lits sont très confortables, et de bonne qualité. La table était dressée et un énorme panier garni nous attendait sur la table de la cuisine à notre arrivée. La maison se trouve dans un lotissement de maisons de vacances, dans la zone ou se trouve les hotels de Killarny, en face du parc national de Killarny. Beaucoup de chose à visiter dans la région. Les conseils envoyés par mail par Valerie étaient bien utiles (les restau, les boulangeries, supermarchés...etc). Bref, on recommande sans hésitation!

Wonderful house.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this rental. It's spacious, clean, lovely and conveniently located to Killarney. We arrived and found a beautiful basket filled with wine and cheese and many other items. That was a nice surprised since we had such a long trip. The pub next door at the hotel is excellent. We drove the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula. Ring of Kerry was beautiful but we thought the Dingle Peninsula was exceptional. All dealings with Valerie (the owner) were wonderful. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect stay in Killarney

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Killarney for one week, and besides the stunning sights and landscapes, this house was also a main reason that we enjoyed it so much. The house is in a splendid condition, immaculately clean and nicely furnished and decorated. Everything you need - it's there. Washing machine, dryer, coffe machine, super-fast WIFI, Sky cable TV... A lot of brochures and recommendations from Valerie concering restaurants, things to do etc. were also available in the house and were extremly helpful.

The owner Valerie was really nice, starting from the booking process to the check-in, everything was easy and well organised.

You can tell she really cares about her guests as not only could you find kitchen essentials like salt, pepper, herbs, tea, coffee, washing liquid etc. provided, when we arrived we found a big welcome basket with cookies, chocolate, milk, bread, butter and other things - even fresh flowers. We rented several houses during the last years, but this kind of welcome was nowhere to be found before.

So to sum it up, I can absolutely recommend this house when you are in the Killarney area, we will definitely come back some time.

I wholeheartedly recommend this home

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, well-organized and very well-equiped (All we needed was available!)

The owner of the house was very welcoming. The product mix received at our arrival (fresh bread, cereal, cookies, cleaning wipes for our little daughter, etc.) gave us great pleasure.

The house was well-located to explore the region.

In conclusion, it was perfect!

Outstanding Luxury !!

  • 5 of 5

Have you ever wanted to pack all your home comforts and take them on holiday with you ? Well there is no need when you book Blarney House. Where do I start the quality of fixtures and fittings is superb from the living area, Kitchen and the bedrooms. The kitchen has everything you need to selfcater easily we loved the coffee machine especially. The house is spotless and Valerie goes out of her way to assist with any requests you might have. We have travalled all over the world and can honestly say we didnt want to leave after the week we spent here. The location is spot on 5 mins into the town and local supermarkets and the view over to the mountains makes this rental a holiday to remember. I wouldnt hesitate to recomend Blarney House to anyone wanting a quality self catering vaction. Thanks Valerie for everything Claire and family
