Recent County Kerry reviews

  • Beautiful home in the perfect location!

    "Our group of 7 adults and 2 little ones arrived a bit later than anticipated on a Tuesday evening and Breda was waiting for us with a smile. The house was perfect for us. Immaculately clean and stocked with all the necessities. It is in the perfect location; a few steps from everything at the high end of the main street. Off street parking is an added convenience. Dingle has long been one of my favorite spots and I was eager to show it to the rest of the family. They now have fallen for the place as well (how could you not?) and Breda and her lovely home made our stay that much more enjoyable! Thanks so much, Breda!!! We will most certainly be back!!!"

  • Perfect for our group of 9

    "The size of this house was perfect for our group. Plenty of room for each family member for sleeping and loved the dining area for end of day pow wows. It was also great having a couple of food items already available to us - milk, orange juice, bread, coffee, tea, etc. While the hot water was not enough, at times, for the group of us, we made do. We were not too far from the town and it did not impede our activities."

  • Cottage Mary Rose is a true Irish treasure!

    "We booked a four night stay at the Cottage Mary Rose and from the moment we walked in, it felt so warm and cozy, especially with the fireplace in the main room. Everything about the cottage is charming and delightful! There were all the modern conveniences you could ask for and we made ourselves quite at home. Outside, the thatched roof was amazing, the entryway and front door were so cute, all reminiscent of the past. You can tell how much pride the owners take in their property. We especially enjoyed the spectacular stars at night from the hot tub or while on the deck listening to the stream bubbling nearby. The surroundings were lush, there were rolling hills and wonderful views, complete with sheep, cows, and farmland. There was a great neighborhood Pub just a short walk away. Everyone was so friendly. We loved visiting Ireland and staying at the Cottage was a true treasure. You got a real feel for the country. All of the sights we visited were within a short drive: Blarney Castle, Killarney National Park, and Dingle (shopped and then drove the Ring of Dingle). We can't wait to return, stay at Cottage Mary Rose again, and see more of Ireland."

  • charming country home with lovely sun room and view!

    "My husband and I had a nice stay. The home is comfortable and has a lovely sun room with a grand view! The sunrises were beautiful. We enjoyed watching the pheasants courting in the yard and the sheep across the road. There are stunning beaches close by."

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.
