About the Owner

Karen and I (Steve) are from Birmingham we have 3 kids 2 big ones and one little one ;o)

We fell in love with County Kerry and have visiting Ireland for many many years as we have family 'over'.

We have had Bumble Cottage now since 2006 and the cottage has been very popular.

We have made sure that the cottage has all the home comforts you would expect.

We find that Listowel is such welcoming place and everyone has time for each other and not in a hurry, which makes a welcome change from living in a busy city.

Ian From Wolverhampton


We had a very enjoyable time last week thank you

The highlight was a trip down to Inch beach in Dingle via Connor pass, and maybe the Guinness!!

The cottage was very nice and comfortable, with plenty of room for the four of us. I don’t think we wanted for anything while we were there.

Noreen was very helpful as well, even getting a mechanic to come out when I had a problem with my car.

Many Thanks


Carol From Birmingham


Our stay in Bumble cottage was very enjoyable and relaxing.

We did not have chance to see all the places we hoped to have seen.

Tralee bay nr. Castle Gregory was worth visiting and Ballybunioin Beach was also very Nice

Noreen and Family were very helpful..

We hope to visit again in the future.

Deirdre From Dublin

From the Owner

Listowel is a lovely traditional Irish Town with an abundance of character. We purchased Bumble Cottage as it give easy access to all ports and airports and ideally located to tour County Kerry, County Claire and County Limerick. Close to the coast with easy access to many famous seaside locations such as Ballybunion and Ballyheigue. A short drive and you are on the Ring of Kerry or the Dingle Peninsula. Golf round here is great, Adare, Ballybunion, Doonbeg, Castle Island are all close by. Me and my son love fishing and with the Feale and the Shannon close by, it’s great for us. We often go to Tarbert till dusk for a spot of sea fishing or even just across the road and fish of the bridge. Listowel has museums, a castle, steam railway, restaurants & pubs galore..

From the Owner

We offer all home comforts and as some say 'try to do that little extra..' Maybe you are just looking for a break away from the hustle and the bustle, so we understand the importance of home comforts. UK Satellite TV in the lounge and all bedrooms so you don't miss what's going on in the soaps and are in touch with the news back home. The large farmhouse kitchen has all you need. We recently purchased a 4 poster bed for the master bedroom which looks great!! In the lounge we have a video library approx 200 titles and a nice turf burner. Kids= large garden, play & picnic area, Fishing just yards way and CBBC & CITV along with kids dvds and games.
