Guestbook comments from the owner

I'd like to join the choir of praise! They are not exaggerating, I can vouch for that!

My friends and I, we were seven adults, planned a trip to Ireland and Killarney area for a week. We found this house through Home away and we are super happy that we choosed it!

The house is very nice, comfortable and has a warm feel, you can see that the owner has an eye for quality and details! We never felt that it was small or cramped.

You need a car to get around, but, if you have one it's a great location. Killarney is a good half hour away, Killorgin, 10 and Glenbeigh 5! There are good restaurants and pubs (some of them has live music in the evenings) close by (you need a car though). Not far away there are shops where you can buy your groceries.

The locals are incredibly nice and friendly and love to have a chat. You can easily travel alone and have a wonderful time without being lonely!

Then we have the owner, Marcella! Wow, what a wonderful person she is! Marcella met us completely spruced up in an evening gown! She gave us great tips and ideas on what to do and see, she even sent messages during the week letting us know that there was a great artist at the pub one evening! I have never felt so welcomed by anyone outside my circle of friends!

We rented this lovely home for two full weeks and had a wonderful stay. I have stayed in many vacation rental homes and this one is exceptional. It feels like a 'home' versus a vacation rental. It is warm, comfortable, and well decorated just as you would do in your own home. Marcella is a fantastic host, very kind and caring. This home provides a quiet retreat after a day exploring or provides a roomy, comfortable place for staying in should you desire. It is very close to many beautiful places. Our personal favorite was Rossbeigh Beach; incredible and only about 5 minutes away. We went there several times during our stay and felt lucky to be there during the winter when the beach was not crowded, and the Atlantic always puts on a great show, whether peaceful or wild. Everything was well-provided, kitchen had everything (and I cooked at home a lot), the whole place was spotless, and we slept well. I am so grateful for owners who rent beautiful, clean places at affordable prices. Great place, great host, highly recommended.

Beautiful, roomy, clean with lovely view

  • 5 of 5

This home was more space than 2 couples needed but all rooms we used were comfortable and roomy. Great base for touring the area including the Ring of Kerry and Dingle Penninsula We visited local pubs and restaurants and enjoyed good food and trad music. Kitchen was well equipped and washer and dryer were great to have. This would be a great spot for a large family getaway. Marcella is a friendly and cordial hostess.

Couldn't ask for more.

We stayed here for 5 days and it met every need and more. This is a beautiful home and is wonderfully maintained. All the amenities were upscale. There was more than enough room for 4 adults and a two year old. The location made it convenient to travel the Ring of Kerry, close to two lovely towns and not far from Killarney or Dimgle. Marcella was such a lovely host. I would highly recommend this to anyone and if in Ireland again, would not his taste to rent here again. Thank you Marcella for everything.

Excellent property, great value.

  • 5 of 5

We are regular renters of holiday homes in Cork and Kerry and were absolutely delighted with this property. It is the cheapest home we have rented but it did not disappoint in any respect. In fact it provided everything that we expect (and often don't get) in more expensive properties and much more.

Everything was clean, well looked after and worked perfectly. The wifi was fast and invaluable for children on quiet or rainy days. The garden, driveway and house exterior were immaculate.

Thank you Marcella and Declan for your attention to detail. We will not hesitate to contact you next time we come to Glenbeigh.

Beautiful setting in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five nights at Marcella's lovely home. The home is very clean with everything needed in the kitchen. Large windows allow you to enjoy the great views of the bay and hills in the distance. The location on the Ring of Kerry was perfect for day trips on the peninsula as well as Dingle and Killarney national park. Marcella was very helpful in helping us decide which day trips to take and recommendations for dinners and local music. We would highly recommend this home for travelers to the area.
