Recent County Kerry reviews

  • Wonderful week

    "We are a group of 10 Canadians who spent an marvelous week at Coolclogher House. We were greeted with a warm Irish welcome from the owner, Mary, who had great suggestions for what to see and do. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable with the result that we all thought are own room was the 'best.' The views from the house are spectacular. We travelled out each day to sightsee and golf, and it was always a delight to return home to Coolclogher, to sit outside and gaze at the view, or to sit inside in one of the comfortable sitting rooms. The house and its amenities definitely exceeded our expectations and we hope to return some day. All of us would highly recommend it."

  • Delightful

    "As you can see from the previous reviews this lovely house is very well equipped and we stayed only for a long weekend and did not have the time or the weather to take advantage of everything. We were 8 adults who try to get together annually and this house was perfect, which unfortunately the weather wasn't! You don't go to Ireland for the weather but the Craic! Rooms were comfortable, fire a godsend and the views spectacular. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would come again. Also recommend a trip to skellig Michael, where dolphins played around our boat, and we saw puffins, seals and gannets. Memorable weekend."

  • Great house for a group

    "There were 10 of us, ranging in age from 9 to 71, and everyone had a great time. None of us had been to Ireland, but after a week, we all were all proudly "part Irish." The house is walking distance to the town, which is filled with shops, pubs, and beach walks. The home owner is very friendly and accommodating. He also mentioned that there are more pictures of the house on his website. I tried to add it as a link, but vrbo took down my review when I did that. Anyway, our group gets together somewhere different every summer, and having a house within walking distance to all kinds of places was a true plus."

County Kerry Travel Tips

Kerry Vacation Rentals in the Emerald Isle of Ireland

County Kerry in the Emerald Isle of Ireland is a large county of mountains and lakes with a coastline along the Atlantic Ocean. It borders both County Limerick on the east and County Cork to the southeast. Choosing one of the Kerry cottages on offer here puts you in over 1,800 miles of stunning scenery with charming Irish towns and villages to explore. Residents often refer to it as the "kingdom."

It has two distinct terrains--the lush green mountains and the coastal peninsulas of Beara, Iveragh and Dingle. Its high rainfall and mild temperatures make it an exceptionally lush, green county with perfect growing conditions for subtropical plants like tree ferns and strawberry trees. It is an ancient county which traces its history back to the 12th century. Getting here, visitors choose to fly into Dublin and complete their journey either by train or hire a car. The main road through the area is N70.

A Kerry Accommodation in This Ancient County

There are delightful towns and villages to be discovered within easy distance of Kerry vacation rentals. The capital of County Kerry is Tralee which is home to the world-famous "Rose of Tralee" festival held every August. Here, the beautiful 18th-century port area attracts many visitors. Visitors will enjoy the scenery on the drive from Tralee to Brandon. Once you arrive at Brandon, visit the local art gallery to enjoy the scenery captured on canvas in a series of beautiful oil paintings. Killarney is an ideal place to enjoy the wonderful local shops. It is located within a short distance of the countryside, the mountains, large lakes studded with islands and woodland.

The area referred to as the "Ring of Kerry" is the Iveragh Peninsula. It is an excellent center for beaches with beautiful seaside villages. What really makes the area unique is the opportunity to explore the ancient Iron Age forts, monasteries and the famous Ogham Stones. These stones date from the 5th century and are carved with the long dead language of the original inhabitants.

Within the Ring of Kerry, visitors will find the area of Ross-Maine, a charming place to explore with towns such as Castlemaine, Glenbeigh, Killorglin, Milltown and Rossbeigh, each a delightful place to spend time.

Enjoy the Natural Beauty of Ireland

This area of unspoiled natural beauty is a delight for a variety of outdoor activities. Among the outdoor activities here are water sports on the lakes such as canoeing and kayaking. The adventurous may enjoy mountaineering, rock climbing and hiking. There are many opportunities to explore on horseback with mountain trails; you can also enjoy riding into the surf along one of the glorious beaches. It is also a hunting region and visitors may enjoy watching this traditional way of life as the brightly dressed riders, horses and hounds race over the country in pursuit of the elusive fox. Those who enjoy cycling can rent bicycles and either explore the trails or, with quiet roads, cycle from town to town. Golf enthusiasts will find the ideal course on offer from one of the 20 to choose from. And then there is the superb fishing. Fish the freshwater rivers for trout and salmon or head out to sea for bass, conger eel, cod, mullet, mackerel, ray, and tuna.

Kerry Cottages are Great Properties in a Great Location

With the variety of Kerry accommodations on offer, there is the perfect property for everyone. There are coastal properties, just steps from the beach, cozy farmhouses on the edge of the golf course, or 18th-century thatched cottages complete with hot tubs and wireless internet access. The choice is endless and each property is equipped with everything needed to make a great home away from home.
