  • Heaven on Ear

    "When planning a vacation, one tends to create expectations and visualize outcomes that are rarely, if ever met. Our stay at Tri Phailme exceeded the aforementioned ten-fold. From the moment I discovered the photos of Jim's home, which include an Irish flag flying high over Old Glory, I knew I was making the right decision in booking the first leg of my family's 2014 trek through Ireland. Traveling with my wife and our three little ones (all under 8), as well as my 65 year old mother, our age rage could have presented various obstacles in most places. Upon making our entrance into Tri Phailme, it was immediately evident that this home wasn't and isn't most places. The kitchen jumped right out at us. Its size perfect for our morning breakfasts and evening snacks. The family room just off the kitchen, with its unobstructed views of the Atlantic, offered a comfort and coziness that will resonate in our minds for years to come. Though we had just 6 in our party, the home could easily accommodate double that. Each of us slept soundly throughout and having en suite bathrooms in every room was truly gravy. The kids made the second floor family room their haven, with each night presenting a new board game. To say we were blessed with amazing weather would be an understatement as we enjoyed 75 degrees and sunshine for 7 straight days. This allowed us to spend ample time on the beach which is right down the road. The memories we made in the ocean, with the Skellig Mountains as our backdrop, are the stuff of fairy tales. Absolutely Incredible. For the golf enthusiasts, Waterville Links is right next door and is worthy of its world class pedigree. Just mentioning Jim's name ensured that I got out in the first group and I am forever grateful for that. Teeing off at 8am enabled me to get back to the family with the entire day still ahead of us (after a Guiness inside the clubhouse of course). When we found ourselves in need of an excursion we simply phoned Brenda who readily provided us with her local knowledge and charm. Our day in Knightstown on Valentia Island won't soon be forgotten. With ample eateries within walking distance to the house (Dooley's Seafood & Steak House tops our list) there is a menu for everyone. However, it was the after dinner sunsets back in the front yard of Tri Phailme that will live with my family and I for eternity. Jim, we can't Thank You enough for welcoming us into your beautiful home. My only hope is to one day return. Slainte!!!"

  • Wonderful Familiy Vacation!!

    "Stayed at Teach Mor for 2 weeks with 5 for a family vacation. We had different ages and physical abilities and the cottage was set up well for all. The walk in shower is fabulous!The cottage is close to the Town Center but you would never know it. It was a good location for day trips in SW Ireland and Killarney National Park offered lots to do on the days you don't want to be driving. Walked every morning to town or in the Park. Tim and Bernadette were great hosts offering lots of information. Tim told us about Irish music right across the street, great night out and no driving. Some of the many highlights were, Dingle, Ring of Kerry, Muckross House and Abbey, Gap Of Dunloe (hike or jaunty ride), hike up Old Kenmare Rd., Kinsale, Kenmare. In town had great meals at the Sportsman, Robertinos and a fun night at Murphy's Pub. My daughter did 2 Mini-Marathons and I did one, great way to meet local people! Bernadette....thank you for the Scones delivered warm and delicious. I can't forget to mention Oscar and Massie your dogs. We all loved them, Oscar visited us daily and we had to bring him home from the pub one night! We are already talking about our next trip to Ireland. Thanks again. Shannon"

  • Delightful homebase to see County Kerry

    "Tim and Bernadette were most gracious hosts. They checked in several times throughout our week long stay to see how things were going. One of the days I was trying to make some kindling out of larger logs and Tim showed me where there was an available supply. When we initially arrived they also made sure we knew where everything was and suggested how we could spend our time. What I wish I had known before booking - Town is too far away to walk. What delightfully surprised me - The easy access to amazing places in Killarney, you don't even need to go far to enjoy everything."
