The best vacation - EVER
The best vacation - EVER
I stayed at this cottage for a week with 6 other people. We had lots of room and were very comfortable. The view, the cottage, and the area cannot be described. Every picture I have doesn't come close to capturing the beauty of this area. We went out sight seeing every day and couldn't wait to get back and re-live the day at our comfortable cottage. I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to fully enjoy this part of Ireland. I cannot imagine going back to Ireland and not staying here. It was truly a home away from home! Caitin's Pub is just down the street and we frequented this place often. The staff was so pleasant - I just love Jack, Cathy, and Pat - they made things so much more enjoyable and were always accommodating. They treated us like family.

A group of friends and I, totaling 7 in all, recently stayed in this delightful cottage at the beginning of September. The cottage exceeded our expectations in it's beautiful location, it's spaciousness and charm. On our drive from Shannon airport, we wondered often when we would reach the ocean. We drove around a bend shortly before reaching Kells and there it was. Sweeping ocean views. The photos on this website do not give justice to the amazing ocean view from the cottage, nor do they adequately portray how attractive the cottage is. There are front and back patios, full functioning kitchen (which we put to good use!), 3 bathrooms, and plenty of room to fit us all very comfortably. We had a wood fire every night in the fireplace, which was very cozy. We did a lot of sight seeing, hiking, shopping and pubbing and looked forward to returning to the cottage after each adventure. We very much enjoyed Caitin's pub, conveniently located just 700 meters from the cottage. The food was great there, the staff hospitable, and we LOVED the sheep herding show! I have every intention of returning to this cottage again some day, and I tell you... I did not want to leave it.

Wonderful home and location
Wonderful home and location
Staying in this home was the peak of our family's Irish vacation. The location was very handy to hiking, biking, roaming around the countryside, the ocean and beach, horseback riding, not to mention all of the historical parts of the Ring of Kerry. We found the house well maintained, clean and very comfortable. There was plenty of room for all of us, and the family room/kitchen was very relaxing! Thank you for sharing your house with use, we wish we had booked another week!
