                    The Aunt's Cottage was just wonderful and the owner absolutely terrific!! Once we arrived, the lady that looked after the home was extremely helpful and pleasant! We would definitely recommend staying here - there is just so much to see around the Ring of Kerry. The home is in an excellent location for sight seeing and if you want some of the best food around, check out the Blind Piper within walking distance from the house. There is also a riding stable a short walk from the house as is the ocean!! All in all it was the best vacation ever.

                    Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, tourists without a car, adventure seekers.

                    This house is perfect for anyone who wants to get out of the reality of city life and electronics. It has no television and no internet, but it does have a radio! The pub is alive all day and all night, there's a beautiful beach down the road, several incredibly scenic trails along the mountainside, and of course history everywhere you go. My family never ran out of things to do while we were there, the location is perfect, and the house is so cozy. It has a nice peat fireplace, two bathrooms with showers, a functional kitchen, and a washing machine/dryer combo. The washing machine takes quite a while to wash and dry the clothes, but once the wash cycle is done, we just took the clothes out and let them air dry outside to save time (unless it's raining of course). Just bring extra clothes and you should be fine! All in all, I can't wait to go back to the Aunt's House, and I highly recommend it to anyone.

                    Recommended for: Families with teenagers, sightseeing, age 55+, adventure seekers.

                    My husband and I and our teenage daughter stayed at the Aunts House in July of 2007 - in the midst of the renovation (!) - and we loved it then, so I'm sure it's even more wonderful now that the work has been completed. The house was charming, roomy, and comfortably furnished (with two great showers!). The location was ideal for historic or scenic walks (I spent half a day exploring and meditating out on Abbey Island!) and provided an ideal base of operations for day trips in one of the most beautiful and unspoiled areas of Ireland. The food at the local pub was fresh and delicious and there was live traditional Irish music several nights during the week, which was particularly important to my husband and daughter who are players. In short, I can't wait to go back!

                    At the Aunt’s House this past April, we spent one of the most scenic weeks of our lives. While the weather certainly helped, the incredible location and good feeling of the house is really what made all our adventures so easy to pull off and what made the week so comfortable, convenient and enjoyable. This was our first trip to the Ring of Kerry, and we were thrilled we were able to stay at the Aunt’s House in Caherdaniel—it’s a world away from the lines of hotels, and a more dramatically beautiful location, and one closer to other major beauty spots. We also liked being part of a small community, from getting to know Margaret, the incredibly kind and helpful caretaker, to the characters at the local shop and pubs. There is a beautiful view from the Aunt’s House itself, and you can find more beauty on foot or by car. Just moments to the right outside the door, you can start walking the famous Kerry Way footpath. Within two minutes outside the door in the other direction, you arrive at Freddie’s store, one of those miracle stores that seems to be able to expand space and fit most things you need into its confines. Across the way, we ate well twice and enjoyed the atmosphere at the Blind Piper Pub, and appreciated the free WIFI. Just a short drive down the road (or a good exercise walk) from the house and these stores/pubs, you can visit the enlightening former home of Daniel O’Connell (with lovely gardens and beautiful beach), and a bit further on, the stunning Derrynane Beach and Abbey Island with its atmospheric ruins and cemetery. One of best experiences you can have from the Aunt’s House is climbing Skellig Michael. The Aunt’s House is ideally situated to take the short drive to visit Valentia Island (great views, great walks), and to take a boat to the Skelligs. Unparalleled. In the other direction, the Aunt’s House is perfectly situated for visiting ancient Staigue Fort, from which the views are breathtaking, and the delightful village of Sneem. On our last day, after enjoying the market and lunch in the town of Kenmare, we went to Gleninchaquin Park at the beginning of the Beara Peninsula. The extraordinary waterfall walk (be ready to climb!) allows you to experience a remarkable variety of landscapes and views in a two-hour circular walk. We still can’t quite believe that the Aunt’s House provides such a location, such rich opportunities, such homey comfort, such views, and such convenience.

                    My boyfriend and I visited Ireland in October of 2010. We spent the first part of the trip in Dublin, and stayed in various B&B's towards the north. The second leg was spent at The Aunt's House in Caherdaniel. It was the best part of our trip and the most relaxing. The house was great. It was actually quite large for the two of us. We loved having the kitchen at our disposal with a market just 15 km away in Waterville. We slept like babies in the big master bed. The view was amazing from the front of the house. You could see the ocean. The beach and the Derryanne House were just 3 km away. We were able to see so much from this location. We took day trips to Killarney, Cork, and various locations in the Ring of Kerry. The town of Caherdaniel is very cute and welcoming. We were there in the off-season so quite a bit was closed but the two pubs were open so we were content. I highly recommend this rental. It is perfect for a small family or a couple. The price is really great and there are so many attractions and beautiful vistas at your fingertips that you will never want to leave. We plan on going back as soon as we can.

                  Year Purchased: 1938

                  About the owner: We have a young family in Rhode Island and our three kids love Caherdaniel. We decided to restore The Aunts House because we wanted our children to have the loving connection to it that we have always had.

                  Why the Owner Chose Caherdaniel:
                  This home has been in our family for four generations. We began restoring it in 2003 and completed the work last year. I first visited my aunts living in this house in 1984 and fell in love with Caherdaniel. It is a truly wonderful place.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The village of Caherdaniel is one of Ireland's great (and largely undiscovered) gems. From our house it is only steps to the village for dinner, groceries or a pint, to Eagle Rock Equestrian stables for a beach ride, and the Kerry Way for one of the most beautiful walks in the world. It's a short walk to the Blue-Flag beaches for swimming, surfing, or the occasional dolphin-watching and Derrynane House National Park with its exquisite sub-tropical gardens and museum of the life and legacy of The Liberator, Daniel O'Connell. From the house, you can enjoy views of the ocean and the mountains or strike out on day trips to Killarney National Forest and the Lakes of Killarney, the Gap of Dunloe, or Kenmare. World-Class golf is only a fifteen minute drive to Waterville (Waterville GC and Skeliig Bay GC). Deep-sea fishing and Skellig Rock trips leave right from the village. The Aunts' House offers the perfect mix of the quiet beauty of The Ring of Kerry with the life of it's most wonderful village.
