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."

  • Unbeatable Vacation in a Glorious Location

    "We had the most wonderful time staying at Tra Cinn Aird. When we arrived at the house, Peter welcomed us in. We were immediately struck by the stunning views that spread out before us--mountainous, ocean, cliffs and hills--laid out for our constant enjoyment. The house is covered in windows, so no matter where you are in the house, you are guaranteed to enjoy the view. Peter was immensely helpful in providing us with great advice for food, music and adventures. He even recommended a location for us to pick muscles for dinner! We had a great time poking around the Dingle Peninsula, driving, hiking and walking all over the sprawling green hills. However no matter what we did during the day, we were even more happy to be coming home to Tra Cinn Aird. It was the kind of comfortable, cozy home that you forget is not your own. With comfortable furniture, a great music selection, and even some great board games--we were always entertained. To top it all off, we started and ended our days on the glorious patio. We ate our breakfast on the patio, enjoyed cocktails on the patio, and even ate a dinner out there! We really couldn't have had a more wonderful vacation in Ireland, and I hope that we are lucky enough to come back and stay in Tra Cinn Aird!!"

  • Remarkable and memorable experience

    "We took my 82 year old mother on her second trip to Ireland (her first was 40 years ago) and the highlight of our trip was our week long stay in this wonderful house where we enjoyed quiet and gorgeous views the whole day long. There is lots of room and lots of comfort, and a kitchen that was fully appointed and a pleasure to use. We are both architects and my brother is a graphic designer and we all appreciated the intelligent use of Irish Arts and Crafts, both new and old, for the interiors. The owners were extremely helpful, not only with their instructions and advice, but also for arranging to have the house open and ready for us when we arrived. In less than a day we felt at home and well cared for. This house is an ideal choice. Thank you so much."

  • Perfect!

    "Our family stayed in this lovely home during a recent vacation to the Dingle Peninsula. The entire visit was incredibly fun - truly one of those memorable adventures - and this beautiful home was our start point each day and our destination at the end of every day's adventure! The accommodations are lovely, all the comforts of home! We cooked in most evenings and the kitchen is well stocked for most any culinary effort. Plenty of room to settle into a good book or to chat with others about the day's adventures. And what a beautiful setting!!! Simply perfect!! Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with my family!!"

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.
