We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was comfortable and well cared for.

  • 5 of 5

We have 6 people, and all had a comfy place to sleep! Loved the little back yard and patio. The town was close, and had lots of choices for delicious Irish food, drink, and music!!

This townhouse was spacious, clean and nicely appointed but had some issues

  • 4 of 5

Everything about the townhouse was explained to us by a lovely property manager. My son and I were surprised to find out we had to pay for towels, gas, and electricity. We have never encountered that before. The townhouse was quite nice. It was light-filled and the furniture, etc. were good-looking. I also liked the fireplace.The main issues we had with the property were two: one, the bed in the master bedroom was so soft that neither of us could use it, which might not be an issue for all (so take this into consideration). Thankfully, there were still two other bedrooms with twin beds that were okay. Second, the shower in the master bedroom was either ice cold or scalding. I assume this will be corrected, because the property representative was very apologetic and was going to get this problem fixed. I would recommend this property without hesitation except for the two issues I have pointed out.

Close to Kenmare

  • 4 of 5

For those who use a GPS for travel, the address given takes you to a different town and a different holiday village. This condo is 1 mile from the last turn onto Sneem Road. Look for the Willowfield Garden Center on the right and turn in left at the 'Rent an Irish Cottage' sign on the right.

Thanks to a previous review, we knew about the cut-off walking trail into town. Every day after exploring Killarney National Park and the Ring of Kerry, we would walk into town to a pub. The walk is close to 3/4 mile and there are many pubs to choose from when you get into town. The traffic in town is pretty bad because most of the pubs also rent rooms so it was definitely easier to walk. The food is a bit pricey, but almost always includes entertainment in the evenings.

We were the first renters of the season, so there were some problems. The hot water did not work. Luckily there is an on-demand heater for the shower upstairs. The washer/dryer combo is very small and the dryer did not work. That may be an ongoing issue as we found two folding drying racks and lots of clothes pins for the line outside. Otherwise, the condo is convenient, well-furnished, quiet and clean.

Geraldine is a very nice manager and helpful with any questions about the area.

As an added bonus, we even had a guest hedge-hog in the yard during the first two days of our stay. :)

Kenmare good centre and great accommodation

  • 4 of 5

The house was a great location for us in Kenmare and we really enjoyed all the facilities in Kenmare. Its about a 15 minute walk ( my husband's pace) into Kenmare or a longer walk around the back lanes. The longer walk along quiet roads gives lovely views out across the bay. Kenmare is a really good centre to explore the area and very good shops and restaurants, having sampled a few and plenty of soda bread, we welcomed the walk back to the house. The house itself was great and suitable for coping with all weathers

Large, clean and very comfortable cottage.

  • 5 of 5

Had a terrific time in this cottage exploring around the area. Everything was provided for except for the Internet which was a shame. A portable dongle was offered but was too slow to even download our emails.
