Guestbook comments from the owner

What a wonderful time our family had at Fuchsia Lodge! There was so much to do... We played golf at both courses, visited the Skelligs and went kayaking at Ballinskelligs Bay – even saw some dolphins!! The property lived up to all our expectations and beyond. We had our breath taken away by the fantastic views from the living room... Amazing! We didn't know Waterville before and are so thrilled to have been introduced to such a magical place - we shall definitely be back!

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live in the UK, and my parents came over from America- and we had the holiday of our lives! The house and the views are more beautiful than the pictures on the website can describe. We didn't want to do much sightseeing as the view from the house was so amazing in itself. The furnishings in the house were luxurious as well. It is a very roomy, warm, and comfortable home. The area has some amazing walks and day trips. The boat trip to Skellig Islands were very memorable. There are some wonderful Golf courses in Waterville as well. If I come back to Ireland I'll be staying here again! Caragh was a very helpful and hospitable property owner.

Beautiful and amazing house in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

It was our second holiday in Fuchsia Lodge and won't the last. The house and the landscape are amazing. This time we spent 2 weeks in the end of winter and it was very stormy and rainy. But the house was pretty warm and you can end up the day in the sauna after some long walks. Everything in the house is well maintained and clean. If you need help or any information you can always ask Mary or Caragh. We will come back.

Great setting in Waterville for a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

A great property with a beautiful view. The home was very clean and updated. It was spacious and everything worked well. The floor plan was great and included everything you would need. The grounds were terrific and we were able to take long walks.

Lovely holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This is a large, clean, spacious home with lots of windows and beautiful vistas. We were pleasantly surprised to find that there was milk and butter in the fridge and wine, jams and soda bread on the counter when we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped. Waterville is an easy walk from the house where we enjoyed the seascape and pastoral surroundings. Being on the Ring of Kerry allows access to diverse vegetation and views. Day trips to Valentia Island and Killarney National Park were well worth the drive. When we travel, we prefer quiet, scenic places and this location met all our needs. We would highly recommend Fuschia Lodge and the Waterville area. John & Lesley from Ontario, Canada
