Love the house and the area!

  • 5 of 5

The property is lovely! We enjoyed the house,the location and everything about our stay here! The owner sent his sister Joan and brother in law Finn to let us in to the house. They were so kind and friendly.

It was a very chilly day for May and on the way to the house my daughter had said"wish we could have a fire in the house when we get settled in". When we arrived and found they had already lit a fire for us we were thrilled.

The property both house and yard, were clean,beautiful and well cared for. I would definitely stay here again!

It was a favorite of all of us!

Absolutely Beautiful ☘️

  • 5 of 5

If you're planning a holiday in Ireland then

Kenmare and Dunkerron Lodge are a must !

Spent 3 weeks of March 2017 in this beautiful

1800's home ... Arrived to a cosy fire set and

was welcomed by Finn & Joan ...

As a retired Chef , the kitchen is far and above

well appointed / or in a matter of minutes you

can be in Kenmare with a host of wonderful restaurants

to dine ...

Dunkerron Lodge is the perfect place to set up as

a base for exploring Kerry ... at the end of the day

returning to the Lodge - feet up in front of the fire

was just a wee piece of heaven ...

Heartfelt thanks to Joan , Finn and Tim ...

Dunkerron Lodge is a treasure and I have

many happy memories of Kenmare and

surrounding area ...

Will most definitely return/ over and over

again ..❤️

cozy with everything you need

  • 4 of 5

I don't recall exact date of stay, but it was mid-January 2015. I stayed for nearly three weeks during a difficult time of year (weather-wise) in this part of Ireland. But I was very comfortable and glad to be there. The electric blankets were a welcome addition, and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could want for cooking. The fireplace was a nice spot to spend some cold evenings. The landlords are helpful, accommodating, and responsive to needs. I would rent from them again, and recommend to others.

A beautiful cottage.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this cottage for our Summer Holidays this year. From the minate we arrived, we feel in love with the place. This is a period cottage dated back to the 1800's. It is so beatuifully restored and well maintained that you really feel like you are experiencing a little piece of that period in history. (But with all the modern facilites of the 20th century :-) )

Everything from the open fire, the free standing bath to the old iron beds, really made the entire experience a very memorable holiday. The outside of the cottage is as well maintained as the inside, boasting a fabalous rose garden to the side of the house.

The kitchen is more than equipped for all your culinary requirements, in fact it's definatly the most well supplied self catering cottage I have ever stayed in. It's only a 5 minate drive into the village of Kenmare, and very close to some really nice beaches in Caherdaniel.

This cottage is a little gem. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to take a proper break from the hussle and bussle of life and just switch off and relax.
