"Lovely cottage in the most unspoiled location ever."

This was the most lovely cottage in a beautiful wild location about 3 miles from Cahirciveen. Co. Kerry. Even the lovely pictures don't do it justice. With mountains behind it, fields in front as well as the sea and the little harbour of Coomnahincha it made our holiday one of the best. The cottage has everything you need and while it has all the facilities it also manages to retain that traditional Irish cottage feel. Jenny's directions while definitely needed were perfect. We will be back.
