Stunning house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Five ladies staying here, one in a wheelchair. We all had an amazing time.

Everything in the house is of a very high standard - the kitchen has all the equipment you could possibly need, the beds, sheets and towels top quality, and the light oak wood flooring and tables and chairs give a natural and warm feeling. The whole atmosphere of the house is spacious and yet cosy and welcoming.

John was so helpful during booking, in the weeks leading up to our trip, and then when we arrived - best way to get there, things to see, and how to get the best from the house.

We had great meals out locally, lunches and dinners - especially the Smugglers Inn and QC's. Everyone was very friendly and helpful on all our visits around Kerry, and we especially loved travelling around the Skerrig Ring for the views and places to see.

Overall we loved our holiday and definitely hope to return.

The house exceeded our expectations-the living areas were bright and spacious,with glorious views of the sea.

The big difference

  • 5 of 5

We have seen quite a few houses in Ireland and I must say, this house makes a difference. Very clean, bright, comfortable, dry (even in the cold and wet climate this summer), spacious are some of the words that come into my mind when I think about the house. The owners are very friendly, caring and helpful at all times. The pictures of the spectacular view speak for themselves. Our kids loved the garden which is beautifully arranged. We would definitely come back for our next stay.

Irish Vacation Dream

  • 5 of 5

I can't express enough the quality of this house and its owners. My family and I decided to take a trip to Ireland, so as the planner of the family, I started my search for the perfect place to accommodate my three children (8,8, and 6), my husband and I and my sister. This house is by far one of the nicest we've ever stayed in - and I assure you we travel regularly.

The location is amazing. To sit outside on the patio and overlook the view was one of our favorite ways in which to relax. The kids loved the big yard to kick a soccer ball around or stand at the property line and moo at the neighboring cows. From the house, there are several stretches of roadway and hiking paths to work off all the Guinness beer. The house contains all the luxuries needed - whether in the kitchen, in the bathrooms, in the bedrooms or in the yard. We even BBQ'd on the grill one evening. The house is spacious enough for six people to get some moments alone but small enough to feel comfortable and homey. We simply LOVED staying here and when we return to Ireland, we will most definitely stay here again.

But aside from the accomodations themselves, the owners are fabulous. From the minute I inquired about the property, John was eager to help. He provided numerous suggestions on things to do and places to see. The day after we arrived, he called us at the house to check on how things were and offer more suggestions. He was available for questions at any point - I simply emailed him and he got back to me right away. He was just a pleasure.

If you are looking for a place to stay on the Ring of Kerry, I would highly recommend staying here. The views are spectacular. The house is beautiful and comfortable. The owners are amazing and Waterville is a quaint town filled with wonderful people. We loved our Irish vacation!

You will LOVE this house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been renting houses for 16 years in Ireland and this house is without a doubt the best house we have ever rented. The house was spotless when we arrived and we were greeted by Penny the wonderful housekeeper. The location is stunning and so peaceful. John and Ann have thought of every detail to make this house incredible, the kitchen was so well equipped we did not go out for dinner once, the beds so comfortable we drifted off in minutes. The living room was the perfect place to chill after a day of hiking with it's beautiful views, wonderful fireplace and very comfy furniture.

The yard and garden were beautiful as well. I love this house and hope to return next year. Thank you John and Ann for sharing your amazing home I would highly recommend, it is perfect!!!

From the Owner

We spent many years renting properties in Ireland for our holidays. Often they were not as described. We hunted for the ideal location to build our dream holiday home. Loher Beach House is the result and in our opinion plus that of many others is that you will not find a nicer home or location to spend your valuable time. This is a stand out place with stand out reviews to back it up.

From the Owner

We know of no other holiday home with so many 5 star reviews from discerning travellers. Our Irish home is Luxuriously appointed throughout with superb proportions which means there is plenty of room for you all to relax in comfort and style. For example the lounge is 9m x 8m. As our mentioned in our reviews this is a home from home. To have all of this in such a stunning and yet convenient location overlooking the Wild Atlantic is very rare and why many of our customers return.
