  • Wonderful vacation

    "We totally enjoyed our stay and when returning to Dublin, Glen Court Apartments will be our choice lodging. Excellent location and within a short walk to grocery store and several great restaurants. Liam is an excellent host. He also arranged all of our ground transportation and his drivers were very friendly and always arrived on time. We would not hesitate to stay with Liam again."

  • World Class 2

    "After spending years thinking & talking it over, our extended Family of 17 finally got it together and made the decision to spend a 3 week Summer vacation in Ireland (2013), it was something else, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it, unfortunately, only a week of that time (the last week) was spent at this incredible house, in what is, a world class location. Staying here was without a doubt the highlight of our vacation (a 3 weeks that had many many highlights), and for many of us probably the best week of our lives.... as a Family together... definitely the best, the only downside was that we had not had the foresight to book the house for the entire vacation, we didn't know, nor could we have guessed from the website that this beautiful house and its magnificent location was in fact far superior than its description and photos, we'll know better next time. Noelle Scanlon and Family Georgia U.S.A P.S. Shirley, I know from our many (fun) discussions with you that you don't need us to tell you this, but once again, you do need to work on this aspect of your business and put your modesty aside, any "hype" in photos and description of your home and its location just can't be enough, I do accept full responsibility for doubting same, and thereby limiting our time there, but thank you from each and everyone one of us for all of your warm and helpful hospitality during our stay,it truly is , and was for us a world case experience.`"

  • Exceeded Expectation.

    "My family and I stayed at this property for a week. I live in the USA and my family live in England so we decided to have a family vacation in Ireland a place I had always wanted to go. The house is in a cul de sac with views of the ocean. it was quiet and views are stunning. My brother and I got up and went for walks along the quiet roads with spectacular views every morning. The house is located in a convenient location for all of south west Irelands tourist spots. We visited Kilarney, Blarney, Beara pass, Mizen head, several others all in good driving distance. The house has everything you will need, a lovely bedroom with en suite bathroom downstairs and 2 great bedrooms upstairs. We drove up on arrival down a country lane and all of a sudden you come out onto this view of the ocean with cliffs and an island right in front of you it just takes your breath away, just gorgeous. I would highly recommend this house to stay in. Linda the owner was very very helpful and I would go back again in a heartbeat. The photos do not portray the beauty of the place, you will be very happy when you get there !!"

  • VRBO Property #391267, Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland

    "This was my first time to use VRBO. I wanted a place that had views of the ocean and this home did not disappoint. The pictures are exactly as they appear and the house is beautiful. I rented this home for myself and two friends for two weeks. We absolutely loved the area and the lovely town of Bantry. The sunsets from the house were amazing. It's a great location for day trips to Blarney Castle, Cork and Kinsale. If you enjoy walking, there are lots of trails in this area and also plenty of sheep and cattle to be seen. The trek out to the Sheep's Head Lighthouse is well worth the effort. The views are breathtaking! The house has wonderful amenities as well as a gorgeous kitchen. We did, however, enjoy eating at several restaurants in town. We enjoyed meeting Deirdre who looks after the house. She is very helpful and made our stay so enjoyable. I would definitely recommend staying here and hope that I can return one day for another truly memorable vacation!"
