Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Six of us (three couples who have known each other for a long time) spent three nights here. It was great. The house is very well kept and the owners are very responsive if you have any questions during your stay. It was nice to find a loaf of brown bread on the kitchen table when we arrived and, lo and behold, there were some unopened items in the fridge which came in handy as well (including a couple cans of ale). The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and the neighbors we met were very nice. The house is a reasonable walk into the center of Killarney (we always drove in because we only had three days) - Killarney is a great town. We used the house as a jumping off point for sightseeing - mostly the Ring of Kerry. Wish we had time to do Dingle as well - supposed to be great. You won't be disappointed by the house - we certainly weren't.

Great Location! Very accessible and quiet.

  • 3 of 5

The food and drink at the house on our arrival were most welcome!

Overall, none of the four of us felt that the house should be described as "stunning" or an executive home. A number of items needed repair, such as the towel bar in the downstairs bathroom (and the sink unclogged) and the glass shelf in the upstairs bathroom as well as the gasket for the shower door. The sink in the bedroom did not work. We could not get the heater in the hall working, but the others pumped out heat that was much appreciated. We continued to have trouble getting hot water in the evenings. Hooks for wet outdoor clothing (perhaps over the heater in the hall) would have been a big help.

Instructions for use of the hob would have been most helpful for North Americans, as well as some starters for the turf fire (although it was lovely to have the turf there waiting for us). The kitchen was well stocked, bright and airy. The dining area was great.

The photos of bedrooms on the site are very misleading in that two of the photos are of the same (downstairs) room with different bedding and furniture. It implies that there are two rooms with large beds and that is not the case. Nonetheless the beds were comfortable.

The house was clean and tidy and it was great to have a home base for five days while visiting the Killarney area. There is so much to see and marvel at. Driving the Gap of Dunloe is not for the faint of heart!!

We would rate the house no higher than 3.5.

Lovely house, ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed four nights in Killarney with four adults. The house is very well-equipped, very clean, and centrally located in Killarney. We were there in part for the Killarney races and the location couldn't have been more convenient. The walk into town was easy, well lit, and helpful after a nice meal or a few pints. Updated instructions for the excellent washer dryer and dishwasher would be helpful for visitors from North America

Wonderful home in Kilarney

  • 5 of 5

The home is extremely comfortable and well kept. The home has all of the necessities that we could have asked for including a great washer / dryer and dishwasher. The beds are really comfortable to sleep in. The shower is also really good in both bathrooms. It's close to town a 5-10 minute walk and also really close to Kilarney National Park & Ross Castle. We enjoyed every minute of our 14 day stay. We loved Ireland and will miss it dearly!

Best home we've ever rented

  • 5 of 5

My family of five was traveled to Ireland from the states for the first time and we were looking for a home away from home. We found it! This home was so comfortable and the set up couldn't have been better. The kids had their bedrooms and bathroom upstairs, they could sleep late and not be bothered by us waking early and vice versa. The separate living room (that no one had to sleep in because of the more than adequate bedroom accommodations) was perfect for them staying up late or me rising early. It was just a very comfortable home. As soon as we walked in my teens ran through the place saying this was their favorite place. As for the owners I cannot say enough there either. They were so accommodating answering my questions before we came and helping me out of a bind while we were there. I had forgotten to print my boarding passes (required for non EU members) and had asked if there was a library or someplace I could go to do it. They said send them the PDF and they would take care of it. The next day we enjoyed the Ring of Kerry and when we returned home our boarding passes were there. One last mention, thank you for the room darkening shades. It stays light very late in the summer and the bedroom was solidly dark with those pulled. I greatly appreciated that when we went on to our next stop and didn't have any there.

We will definitely stay here again. I've already recommended it to friends.
