Brilliant stay *****

  • 5 of 5

Golfing party of 8 stayed for 3 nights recently & we couldn't have asked for more. House is beautiful & extremely spacious & comfortable. The owner Eileen was very helpful & was only a phonecall away if we needed anything. Only a couple of miles from Kilkarney town centre so inexpensive taxi fare to enjoy the restaurants & bars in Kilkarney. Would recommend to anyone.

This home is fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the home are accurate and we found everything to be clean and spacious. I would absolutely rent this house again. The Torc Hotel next door was a great place to dine when you don't want to venture to the town. Wr also ate at the Porterhouse and the food was great.

Fabulous house for family reunion/ celebration

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing week in this property with a mixed age group celebrating a special anniversary. The house is huge and the photos are very realistic of what it looks like. The bedrooms are well equipped and the majority have their own shower ensuites. Only one bathroom (master) has a bath. The bedrooms themselves are quite compact but beds are comfortable and rooms perfectly appointed. House had everything we needed. We cooked large meals, had a BBQ. There were two large fridges, so we used one for wine and prosecco to last us all week. We have a baby and was provided with cot, a ride on toy, stair gate, hi chairs and baby bath.

Everyone was impressed by the house and decor. We comfortably seated 14 around the table. Perfect house in the perfect location for our family reunion and we felt no need to hire cars as it was affordable to hire group taxis or organise tours. The taxi company Eileen recommended was excellent and we used Deros tour guides who were fantastic. The best rental we've stayed in for a very fair price. Highly recommended

Comfortable for all 12 of us!!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time staying at this property last week. The spaciousness allowed us to feel comfortable staying with 12 people and not feel on top of each other. It's a beautiful home with all the creature comforts we needed. Location was perfect! The Torc Inn and pub was very accommodating and delicious food when we didn't feel like cooking. Had one problem with the laundry, but called maintenance person and he came right over and helped us! Thank you for your lovely home!!

Beautiful and huge

  • 4 of 5

+ Beautiful house and area, comfortable beds, lovely living spaces. Fantastic area.

- There is a security light that shines right into the front of the house that is set off by movement including rabbits (there are a lot of lovely rabbits), but the light shining into the front windows despite curtains and blinds still shines into three bedrooms.

There is a bright green emergency light in the master bedroom which made the nicest room in the house unusable for all in my group, at least we didn't have the full 14 people.

Exactly as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 10 and it was absolutely perfect for us. Being next door (20 feet or less) to a nice pub with pretty good food was an wonderful addition to the whole thing. Good kitchen situation. Good linens. Good hanging out spaces (2 living rooms). Comfortable beds. Close to town. Great parking for several cars. Clean! Clean! Clean! Huge dining table that allowed us to host a dinner for 20. Every bedroom had a bathroom (except on 3rd floor where 2 bedrooms share a bath). That was awesome! Did I mention Clean? Ha! The bedrooms facing the back had wonderful views of a meadow. The windows facing the busy road were very good and blocked the sound. This is a great rental house.
