“Comfortable and well-equipped house for exploring the Kerry countryside”

Reviewed 26 May 2013

We had a great spring holiday at Knockatinna with our two kids 10 and 8 years old. The house is a two-hour drive away from Cork airport, and is beautifully and quietly located in the hills just west of Glenbeigh, close to Dingle bay and Rossbeigh beach. We were heartily welcomed by the very friendly parents of the owner, who live a few hundreds of meters further up the road. The house is very well equipped, containing all the necessary equipment and basic ingredients for home cooking, lots of books and DVDs, and extensive documentation for planning day-trips. We particularly enjoyed the fireplace, which provided a cosy atmosphere during the chilly evenings even though the weather was quite good during the whole week. From the house there is 15-minute descent towards a cobblestone beach. We used the house as a basis for several activities, including hiking in the surroundings and near Killarney, and day trips to Valencia Island and Dingle. The Irish coastline here is stunningly beautiful, with its green hills, its cliffs and the several small islands. We can highly recommend this house if you intend to explore the Kerry countryside!

“"Hope to return"”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Knockatinna and this was enhanced by good weather (which always helps). The cottage was one of the best we have stayed at - clean, very well equipped and set in beautiful and quiet surroundings. It was a great location to explore the Ring of Kerry and especially the fantastic beaches. Plenty of places to visit and walks nearby. The owner's parents live just half a mile from the cottage and we were kindly invited to visit one evening (partaking in Kathleen's legendary 'Irish Coffees' which was worth the trip alone!). We would certainly recommend this cottage to family and friends.

“A wondrous Holiday!”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2012

I miss Knockatinna already, having spent a lovely two weeks in its embrace! It's truly in the country, but only a five minute drive from a delightful village (Glenbeigh - with several wonderful pubs, including the Olde Glenbeigh, with origins dating back to the late 1700's). The house was truly outfitted for "self-catering", with all kitchen accoutrements on hand. Linens, towels, etc., were amply furnished. The house is well heated, but for chill evenings, two fireplaces add to the charm of the place. From Knockatinna we toured the Ring of Kerry, the Dingle Penninsula (greeting Fungie, the friendly Dolphin in Dingle Bay), Blarney Castle, Cashel of the Kings and Cork City as well as Bunratty, Durty Nellie's and the unbelievable Cliffs of Moher. We enjoyed spectacular beaches, the Bog Museum, classic Irish farms and pastures, pristine lakes, and of course, embracing Irish hospitality served up by John and Kathleen O'Shea and their fabulous daughter, Laura. All made for a wondrous holiday which we would love to repeat as soon as possible.

“Knockatina was comfortable and spotless with everything we needed for a comfortable stay in Co. Kerry”

Reviewed 7 Apr 2012

Knockatina is a lovely, modern house with everything we needed to be comfortable. The O'Sheas gave us a warm welcome and a lovely send-off inviting us for lovely Irish coffees before leaving. The location was perfect, just off the Ring of Kerry road, yet in a quiet cul-de-sac that very tranquil. With the beauty of Co. Kerry all around us we found ourselves relaxing and enjoying everything. We would recommend this house to a friend without hesitating.

“A Gem in the "Emerald" Isle.”

Reviewed 9 Oct 2011

After a lengthy four month holiday of Scotland and France, our final month and destination before returning home to Australia was Ireland. After spending sometime in Belfast and Dublin we decided to book a self catering accomodation for 10 days of rest and recretaion purposes before tackling the flight home. Whilst in Dublin we went online with Holidaylettings UK and came across "Knockatinna" which appreared to suit our needs and our purse. Booking was easy enough and the trip to County Kerry was great, but be prepared for some narrow roads in the last mile getting there. Nothwithstanding, I can say that it is more than worth it. Practical details are that this self catering holiday home has great space inside and out. It is clean, extremely comfortably furnished, is secluded from noisy surrounds, traffic and otherwise, is unbelivebly well stocked in the kitchen regarding, a lovely welcome package, refridgerated food items, pantry food basics, pots, pans, utensils, cleaning, and bathroom items, etc etc. For families or couples who want to base themseleves in a fantastic part of Ireland, to enjoy day trips around the Ring of Kerry, to towns like Dingle, Cork, Kilarney,Tralee ...or just chill to out and recharge the batteries, "Knockatinna" is it. Plenty of room for kids to run around, two bathrooms, huge kitchen/dining area, log fires, fantastic views from most of the windows in the house, and shops/pubs/cafes/local attractions are less than a ten minute drive. Most improtantly, Kathleen and John our hosts were indicative of the warm and friendly nature that the Irish are noted for. They ensure that your stay is a memorable one. (Kathleen makes the best Irish Coffees that I have ever had). Without hesitation if we find ourselves in Ireland again, Knockatinna will see us again. Bottom line for us, we loved enough to extend ours stay for and extra four nights. We recommend and rate this "let" most highly.

“Lovely, relaxing and very well equipped”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2011

We spent a week in Knockatinna with our 2 children, aged 11 and 14 and we all had a wonderful time. The house is extremely well equipped (the best I ever had for a rental!) and very homey. It is also very big and practical as it is designed for 8 people but only 2 rooms (ie 4 guests) are in use during rental period. There is lots to do around for all ages, beach, surf, sailing, mountains... that can be found around the corner. It is located in a very quiet corner of the Dingle Peninsula, well away from tour buses but really close to Rossbeigh beach which is superb! Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend this rental to families with young children or teenagers for a good relaxing time in a beautiful location!
