"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!!!"

"Stayed here for a week with a friend and her son. The three beds and two bath were perfect. The manager was friendly and hospitable. It's a 10-15 minute walk to town - just a good stretch of the legs. Killarney is delightful, and the surrounding attractions (Ross Castle, also within walking distance, Muckross House, Killarney National Park, etc.) are wonderful. We used this as a base for several day trips (Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Blarney Castle and Kinsale, Waterford) and found it perfect. I'd highly recommend this - and don't miss eating at Cronin's Restaurant in Killarney."
