“Top quality, very comfortable house in excellent location.” My husband and I and our 3 children had a fantastic week's holiday in this beautifully decorated and very comfortable house in Kenmare. The house is spacious and luxurious with very comfortable beds and efficient showers. It is well equipped, had everything we needed, was extremely clean and excellent value for money. The views from the house over the golf course to the hills beyond are lovely. It is also in easy walking distance of Kenmare centre and we were spoilt for choice for restaurants offering excellent food. We found lots to do in the area including golf at Kenmare Golf Club, horse riding, kayaking on the Lakes of Killarney and a seal watching boat trip (Seafari). We enjoyed walking to see the magnificent scenery and our 3 sons were particularly impressed with the satellite TV! We would definitely stay here again.
“loverly house, wonderfull surrounding, a very friendly owner” we stayed for 1 week at this very spacious house.
well maintained with all necessary appliances to make it also a comfortable stay.
also recommended is to visit the Burren (take the farmers trail and get yourself some goat cheese), Connemara, Galway and do get yourself a drink at the owners pub :-)
The owner is very friendly and cooperative with any question you might have.
All the Irish people we met were very friendly btw.
If you want to dine out we also might suggest to go to the Chinese restaurant in Portumna and for a quick bite go to the half barrel pub in Whitegate.
We can strongly recommend this house to anyone.
for Internet access also go to the owners pub as this is not available at the house itself.
(unless you have mobile access)
“Brilliant house, great location” We stayed for a week in Eoin's Cottage at the beginning of August. The house was a great size for our family of 5, good spacious rooms, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. The enclosed back garden and quiet development the house is located in meant it was brilliant for outdoor play for the kids. The house is located a 5 min walk from the village of Culdaff and the beach is within walking distance. We will definitely be back for another visit sometime in the future, first class.
“A totally wonderful experience!” There are not enough words to adequately describe our stay at Rathmines Apt 1. We arrived tired and weary from a long flight, and were cheerfully greeted by Elaine and her colleagues. Even though guests had checked out earlier that morning, our apartment was ready ahead of schedule - which was a great blessing.
The apartment has everything one could want for a lovely stay in Dublin. So much better than a hotel room because we had room to breathe! It truly was a home away from home. The kitchen was fully furnished, and we were provided with eggs, milk, butter, bread, juice, and even chocolate cookies. There is a grocery store 30 seconds away, and all variety of restaurants within easy walking distance.
When Elaine found out that we were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary, a bottle of champagne and box of chocolates suddenly showed up at our front door.
If you are planning a trip to Dublin, you should look no further. We have traveled all over the world, and this was one of the best lodgings ever!
“Immaculate cottage, fantastic views, brilliant location !” A real modern, family cottage which was immaculately clean. The views across the valley are fantastic, whilst the location is perfect for a family with active children. Inch Beach is 15 minutes drive and is superb for walking, surfing and body boarding. Dingle is 45 minutes drive for shopping, galleries, fishing, boat trips, climbing centre. Mt Brandon is 50 minutes by car and provides some of the best views in Ireland (on a clear day ! ). We had great weather and a memorable family holiday.
“Beautiful views” We had a brilliant time , there were loads to do althrough you gad to travel to get to them , kids enjoyed themselves weather was fantastic and the views from the cabin were beautiful
“Beautiful cottage -great location” We stayed in Old Essmore Cottage for 4 nights as part of a family get together in Ireland for St Patrick's day and our son's birthday. Having started our week in Dublin we found it an easy drive to Carlingford Lough for our stay at Gerard's cottage. As it was a Sunday we were delighted when Gerard met us with some gorgeous cake and other goodies including 2 bottles of wine - great hospitality. The cottage exceeded our expectations - the kitchen/diner is particularly attractive and the choice of music adds to the ambience. The lounge is very cosy with the log burner and the conservatory a little sun trap with great view of the Lough. Everything you need is provided, good wifi, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher etc. The cottage is well situated for Omeath and Carlingford and the Greenway which runs between the 2 is just across the road - a lovely walk. Carlingford is great for eateries - we can recommend Magees. Newry is nearby and has a large Supermarket for your groceries. Belfast is about an hour away and we enjoyed our trip to Titanic Museum on a wet day. All in all would highly recommend the cottage and the area for a relaxing break.
“Five star property in perfect location!” The house is not a typical holiday let, it is very much like coming home. It is immaculately decorated and presented, with a fabulously well equipped kitchen that was great fun to cook in. The house is thoughtfully designed with the huge living room upstairs looking out on to spectacular sea views. There are two exquisitely decorated bathrooms, and three lovely bedrooms. The patio was perfect to sit out on with a glass of wine and watch the sun set. Calling it a "Cottage" is quite the understatement!
The location is right on the Hook, just a short walk from the lighthouse so perfect for daily coastal walks and experiencing many of the beaches in the area.
Barbara is a super host (even though we did not meet) and clearly relishes sharing her beautiful home with guests, she could not have been more helpful or thoughtful. We love The Hook and we love The Cottage and we're looking forward already to our next trip!!
“Ideal house for Lahinch” Our group of 5 spent 3 nights at Klondell House in May 2014. Location is ideal with golf course across the street and 'downtown' Lahinch less than 10 minutes walk. House is well-equipped, clean and spacious. The only issue for our group was the lack of wifi.
Dew-covered fields sparkle emerald green and the lilting sound of happy-go-lucky locals drifts from a cosy pub close by. Where else could you be but Ireland? From Dublin’s enchanting streets to County Kerry’s rugged beauty, you’ll be powerless against its charms.
Packed With Personality
Whether you’re in the city or countryside, Ireland offers a warm welcome. Dublin, its vibrant and charismatic capital, is a fascinating city. Cobbled streets are lined with historic buildings, including the medieval St Patrick’s cathedral, the spectacular buildings of Trinity College, and the revitalised Docklands district (not to mention around 1,000 pubs). And no visit to Dublin is complete without touring the world-famous Guinness factory or walking the banks of the beautiful River Liffey.
Fairy Tale Scenery
In rural Ireland, breathtaking vistas of lush fields dotted with thatched cottages come as standard. For incredible coastal views, nothing beats driving the Wild Atlantic Way: you can expect exquisite beauty at each and every turn in the road. But the Emerald Isle has a few surprises, too: County Clare’s Burren National Park offers explorers a lunar landscape, including the unique 207-metre peak of Knockanes with ridges that curve up the hillside.
From the high spirits of St Patrick’s Day to laid-back laughter over a pint of the black stuff, much of Ireland’s lively social scene plays out in the comfort of a cosy pub. You’ll probably be treated to some impromptu trad music (traditional Irish folk music) and end up singing the night (as well as your worries) away. Dublin is the place for bustling bars while quieter watering holes can be found pretty much anywhere you care to stay, from Westport to Wexford.

Central Location to Ring of Kerry Killarney Dingle
Lovely, comfortable apartment with excellent facilities & uninterrupted views over the river
Connveniently located on the Ring of Kerry and The Wild Atlantic Way, close to Killorglin for supplies & places to eat, this immaculate apartment was ideal for exploring the Dingle Peninsula & provided us with everything we could possibly need. The position overlooking the river with the lovely mountains in the background was very tranquil. We really did not want to leave & wished we had had a much longer visit as there is so much to do & see in this area of Ireland. No hesitation in recommending this apartment. …
