  • Haus mit herrlicher Aussicht

    "Wir waren 2 Wochen in diesem Haus und haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt. Da das Haus ein großes umzäuntes Grundstück hat, ist es für Hundebesitzer ideal. Die Besitzerin des Hauses war für alle Fragen offen und sehr hilfsbereit und freundlich, z. B. hat sie innerhalb von 2 Tagen die defekte Geschirrspülmaschine ausgetauscht. Es gibt ein gemütliches Zimmer mit Korbsesseln, aus dem man einen herrlichen Blick aufs Meer hat. Der Strand in der Nähe ist bei Ebbe riesengroß und auf den vorgelagerten grünen Dünen kann man auch schön mit dem Hund spazieren gehen. Das Haus ist über 200 Jahre alt und wird immer wieder renoviert, dadurch hat das Haus seinen eigenen Charme. Das Wetter war typisch für Irland: Ein Mix aus Sonne, Wolken und Regen. Die Temperatur lag zwischen 18 und 20 Grad, also optimal für Wanderungen. Man muss jedoch beachten, dass auf den Wanderwegen die Hunde fast immer verboten sind."

  • Fantastic vacation site

    "We stayed for 2 weeks at this wonderful cottage in what we thought was the most scenic part of Ireland. The views from the cottage are breath-taking and we enjoyed being on the northern side of the Dingle peninsula, which is less "touristy". Cloghane is a nifty little village a short 5-minute ride away where we ate dinner a couple of times at O'Connor's pub/restaurant; the food was delicious. (If you attend the local ceilidh in Cloghane, come prepared to sing a song!) We also had a great meal in nearby Stradbally (Tomasins); a little farther away, in Castlegregory, are several great restaurants we enjoyed and a Spar for grocery shopping. We also enjoyed renting bikes at Castlegregory, although I would be a little leery of biking on roads in other parts of Ireland. We needed every bit of our 2 weeks to savor the Dingle peninsula. We hiked twice behind the cottage through sheep pastures to one of many loughs (lakes), again out at Brandon Point, and along multiple beaches. Tralee (40 min drive) is the capital of Kerry (nice museum) and the rose capitol of Ireland; we enjoyed a Siamsa Tire performance of Irish song and dance there. In that direction also is Killarney National Park and the Muckross estate. Or, you can go south through the Conor Pass (an adventure all by itself) to the town of Dingle (touristy) and out along the Slea Head drive. We picnicked there, went to the Blasket Island Information Center and, on a different day, took the boat to Great Blasket Island, which was fascinating. Scorid Cottage itself is very comfortable and Veronica was very hospitable, greeting us with fresh scones and jam. We took one of the downstairs bedrooms (there are 2) with its own bath. We also used the tub in the upstairs bath, which has two additional bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped. An Irish custom that requires some forethought is that electricity is expensive and oil and electricity is metered and charged at the end of the rental period (this was true for other rentals, as well). We were conservative in our usage and it only cost us about 15 euros per week; a large group who indulge themselves in lots of hot water or heat can expect a much higher tab. Overall, we had a wonderful time at Scorid Cottage and would highly recommend it. The cows and sheep right next door were a bonus. A regret is that we were too late in the year for the lambs."

  • Wonderful stay at Barralach cottages

    "I stayed at the Barralach cottages with my family -- 7 adults in all -- and we all had a wonderful time. The property and views are absolutely gorgeous! The cottages are cozy while also providing plenty of space for a large group. The housekeeper was very helpful in coordinating our arrival and departure and Peter, the owner, sent information about the house and area ahead of time which was much appreciated. We loved staying up on the hill -- with the views of lakes and hills -- and enjoyed going out for dinner in Glenbeigh and other neighboring towns. There's plenty to do and see in the area! Thanks for everything -- we had a wonderful trip!"

  • FABULOUS HOME, GREAT VALUE

    "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."
