Perfect Little Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cottages location allowed us to explore the Kerry coast and the Killarney National Park while providing the peace and quiet to properly relax and enjoy the warm Irish summer nights. Michael was an exemplary host, meeting us at the cottage, running through the many facilities the property had to offer, while also imparting local knowledge. Michael even attempted to organise a trip to the Skelligs for us, and although his friend was fully booked, this is an example of how Michael goes above and beyond for his guests.

The cottage itself was wonderful, the log fire and Jacuzzi bath particular favourites of ours.

Perfect little getaway

  • 5 of 5

Michael was a very accommodating host - he met us on arrival to take us to the house and even got the fire going for us. The house was absolutely perfect, very well equipped, it had everything we needed and more. So cosy and made for a very relaxing weekend. Kerry was fantastic, we loved exploring the area and taking in the stunning local scenery. The house was great, the location was great, we couldn't have asked for a better weekend! Would highly recommend to anyone.

Romantic getaway in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Michael the owner could not of done anymore. We arrived late on the Friday night and he had the fire going for us. It was so warm and cozy throughout the cottage. The jacuzzi bath is an excellent touch to help you unwind and forget about your hectic lives. The property is spotless throughout and the four poster bed is a lovely addition. The location is perfect for walks around the area and is also a few minutes drive to a spectacular beach. The beach was amazing we where there each day for a romantic walk, it was very quiet which felt like we had it all to ourselves! There is a shop less than 5 minutes away for all the essentials. And a beautiful couch you can cuddle up in front of the wood/turf fire. We have no hesitation in recommending this cottage and would love to visit again. June and Vinny

Simply beautiful

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place called paradise- this is it!

What a beautiful and luxurious little cottage surrounded by a amazing scenery. The sea is only a stone's throw away and can be seen even from the bedroom window. Every single detail in the house is chosen carefully and makes you feel home. Well, this place is even better than home....

"I do"...Fantastic Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Michael for a fantastic holiday cottage!! It's clear how much work you've put in, all the little touches really made us feel at home. Tom could not have chosen a more romantic spot to propose!

Even with the rain, exploring Kerry from here has been a joy! We'll be back again.

Time for us!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful time there. Everything was perfect for a little timeout from our daily business. It was calm but not lonely. Close to beach, coast and direct on the famous Ring of Kerry.

Michael and bis family gave us the impression to be friends, not guests - in a positive way!

It was our first holiday in Ireland but for sure not our last.
