"In July my husband and I had the pleasure of enjoying a stay at beautiful Mermaid Isle Cottage on the western coast of Ireland. It is truly a magical location with a charming stone cottage that has all of the modern conveniences Including a washer and dryer). It is on the Ring of Kerry and is just 10 miles from the village of Sneem, which had everything we needed for our stay. Our hosts, Kevin and Lori were helpful and informative. Kevin is a treasure trove of local and historical information and Lori is a gentle and gracious hostess. They allowed us all of the privacy we desired and shared their company when we wished for that. The privately set cottage sits on the Kenmare River, more of a bay than a river at this location, and there is a stunning view across the water to a private island which can be accessed by kayak or rowboat. We had the pleasure of meeting some of the local cows along the road through their pasture on our way to the cottage. The grounds were covered with blooming flowers, stone paths, and small ruins. On several nights we enjoyed a peat fire in the small stove in the cottage to take the night chill out of the air and we relaxed and ate in the large sun room that provided a front row seat to the ever-changing and stunning views. It is a perfect location for a private and tranquil retreat."

"Would definitely recommend this house for a large family getaway! 14 of us spent a fabulous 5 days here over the Easter holidays. The house is so comfortable and beautifully furnished that we felt right at home. It's in a perfect location being only 8mins drive from dingle and a stones throw from the beach and fabulous hill walking trails with incredible views over dingle bay. A house for young and old alike with bedrooms up and downstairs, a games room upstairs (which kept the kids busy in the evenings!) and a fabulous kitchen and living room to relax in and enjoy the views. Fantastic service at a great price. We'll be back!"
