About Jer Foley

Kenmare Rentals is the most recent addition to our family business. Owning and managing O'Donnabhain's Bar & Guest House for many years, we have seen an opening for Self Catering / Holiday Homes as many of our initial guests who are staying with us for the last few years, are spending longer periods here, and it is another alternative.. We have also realised that it can be more cost-efficient and often more convenient for guests who are visiting Kenmare for longer periods of time, to make themselves at home in one of our Self Catering Holiday Homes . If it is your dream to spend a week in a Holiday Cottage in Co. Kerry, then we can make that dream come true.

In recent years, we have therefore newly built or carefully restored, and lovingly furnished and fitted out a small number of Self Catering properties in or near Kenmare town. The properties were designed and finished to our own high standards of comfort and requirement for space, and will truly offer you a home away from home. Kenmare is an ideal base to explore, the South West of Ireland . Co. Kerry, with the Ring of Kerry, Muckross House, and the Gap of Dunloe on your doorstep, as well as the beautiful Ring of Beara in Co. Cork, which starts in Kenmare.

Jer Foley purchased this cottage in 2006

Guestbook comments from the manager

Modern, spacious house. We loved design of the living areas and large bedrooms, esp. jaccuzzi bath. Situated on hillside over looking Kenmare bay and mountains the views are breath taking. Owners very helpful when travel arrangements had to be changed.

Nice house however poor quality service

  • 4 of 5

Truly nice house located in a beautiful area of Kenmare. The house is large enough and well equipped (except for the dishes and plates). The house is however getting old and would need some works (the heating system, some of the windows).

We were disappointed by the wifi which is limited. After 5 days the wifi connection was turned off. I went to the pub of the owner to see what was the problem and I was welcomed in a rude manner "I cannot help call this number" (no "sorry for the inconvenience caused" or so)... I took us 4 days to have the wifi back, and only for 3 days, because it was turned off again...

So in a nutshell a beautiful house but with a disappointing customer service.

Great Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful house in a great location about about 5 miles from Kenmare.

The house is very spacious and clean with spectacular views. The owner was very helpful and friendly

The condition of the sofa in the sitting room is poor and some windows ( sitting room and master bedroom) have problems with condensation inbetween the double glazing which means a loss of the beautiful view.

An extra large towel per person would be very welcome because the house has two bubble baths.

Overall a great holiday home !

This is a tranquil setting with an amazing view of the Kenmare River and the mountains beyond.

The house is spacious, filled with light and very comfortable. Jer Foley, the owner, is very responsive to questions and requests.

Comfortable stay in a beautiful part of the world

  • 4 of 5

A good position 2 miles from Kenmare with views over the estuary.

Very spacious and comfortable accommodation for 4 people.

Did not read details of hire properly and ended up paying €30 for calor gas heating (Water only) and electricity.

With access to a good dishwasher, it would be nice to have more cutlery and crockery to fill it up.

Recommended and we will return.

Perfect location for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at this property. It was so well equipped and the location was very special, so quiet and peaceful and only a short drive into Kenmare. Our kids loved the space the house offered. Jer the host was great and called in to check everything was OK on the day we arrived! We will definitely be returning to what our kids call "our Kerry house"!!

Only 2.5 miles from the town of Kenmare is the townland of Killaha, beautifully located on a gently sloped mountainside from where lovely views of Kenmare Bay, the MacGillycuddy Reeks and the surrounding countryside can be enjoyed. Killaha is situated on the Ring of Beara, renowned for its rugged scenery and peaceful beauty spots. Being that close to Kenmare, Killaha has all amenities and services close at hand but enjoys a quality of life that is synonymous with the countryside.
