Great location for Ring of Kerry

Beautiful location with amazing views. Very attractive welcoming cottage with lovely sitting room/kitchen. We paid a premium price for this house which would have been fine had we experienced premium accommodation. The beds and bedding were outdated and uncomfortable and when we showered, water came down through the ceiling into the kitchen. Additionally, only one shower in an en-suite in one bedroom had hot water which was not convenient given that we were 8 adults. For 886 euro for just two nights, we simply expected a bit more.

An absolutely beautiful property and the perfect base to explore Kerry. The kitchen/living room area is perfect for entertaining, and the underfloor heating kept the house cosy. The view from the front of the house is magnificent. Although there is no WiFi, the phone signal was very good in case you need to stay in touch with the outside world!

What an amazing vista! The views from this traditional cottage would be hard to beat. Very comfortable, loved the underfloor heating, comfortable beds but the best thing is the location. Nearby beaches are lovely and the Kells Bay house and gardens and Thai café are definitely worth a visit.

We had a lovely stay over New Years at Maureen's cottage. It was warm and cosy, with everything we could have needed. The cottage is very spacious, bigger than we expected. Pub is only a stones throw away, which was nice to pop down to to ring in the new year. Great location along the Ring of Kerry to see the sights. Maureen gave great directions to find the house and explained everything on our arrival. I would stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, it was beautiful building and had great surroundings. Slight lack of communication in one or 2 areas. Maybe a notice with instructions would be helpful.
