Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi James,



Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I was away for a few days.



We had a ball at Skellig Cottage. The weather was shocking so we got great use out of the house. The layout was fabulous. Everything was spotlessly clean and anything we needed was there. We even made use of the barbeque (in very extreme conditions).



We enjoyed it so much we were thinking of heading back there again for New Years Eve, if its available.

Thanks again for everything James. I'll be in touch re New Years Eve at a later stage.

Amazing place. Beautiful and spacious house in a spot with ever changing views over the bay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice house with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen area is huge and the views from the windows are really amazing. Its a 180 degrees view of the bay with ever changing vistas. No matter what the wheather is.

We found it hard to leave the place after only one week.

The house is well equipped, with several sitting areas. Only remark on the downside is that some kitchen appliances start to show some tear and wear.

Nice surpise was the availability of a Nespresso coffee maker with a milk frother for a real cappuccino. So bring the cups of your own liking for a perfect coffee ;)

Quiet cottage in great location

  • 4 of 5

We were two couples from Australia enjoying a 3 week stay in Ireland. The cottage accommodated us well but we would not call it a luxury seaside cottage. The kitchen facilities were very good and we really appreciated the new coffee maker. The only thing that could be added to the kitchen is a couple of containers with lids. The milk etc in the fridge was much appreciated. Both of the en suite bathrooms are very small and restrictive and the showers lack a soap container and there is only a towel rail for the hand towel and washer. Perhaps some towel hooks in the bedrooms would assist with this problem. We dined out on most evenings and on the last night we went to the Smugglers Inn Restaurant (near the Golf Course) and we had the best meal of our 2 months holiday - would really recommend this to other guests. They even have an Early Bird Menu offer which is extremely good value - get there by 6.30 pm.

Lovely and comfortable cottage situated in an ideal location to explore the delights of Kerry

  • 4 of 5

There were nine of us in our party when we stayed at Skellig Bay cottage in June 2016 (6 adults, 2 children and a toddler). We were very lucky as the weather was exceptional, which allowed us plenty of time to bathe on the beautiful Derrynane Beach which is just a 10 minute drive from the cottage. There is plenty of other things to see within walking distance of the cottage itself, for example the old fort just up the lane and the secluded cove which is about 400 meters in front of the cottage as the crows flies. However it’s still a 20 minute walk to get to it following the road.

The cottage was perfect for our stay, there was plenty of room for us all to be together or have our own space and the facilities were great. It is laid out in a modern open plan style and is tastefully decorated. The beds were really comfortable and we never struggled with heating or hot water for showers and baths. Sitting out on the terrace of an evening as the sun goes down is delightful and we often ate our tea outside, using the BBQ as well.

Our only minor complaints about the place was at times we had to wait for cold water to come through the taps, the lock on the main bathroom door kept getting stuck (locking people inside) and the absence of a parasol outside. Apart from these minor observations everything else was very good. We did however find the refuse a bit tricky to manage having only been given one normal and one recycling bag for a full week. That said, everything else we needed was very well catered for. We would highly recommend Derrynane Beach, followed by a spot of lunch in the Blind Piper. The anti clockwise drive from Waterville to Killarney is stunning and Valentia Island and Portmagee is worth a visit.
