“Great place to stay and good central spot.”

Stayed a week and was the most homely rental I've stayed in. Clean with two showers and two bedrooms plus spacious kitchen. There was always a parking spot outside when we returned in the evening. Plenty of places to eat just around the corner. Kathleen the owner was very friendly and keen to make sure the house was tidy for us. Very central to Ring of Kerry and Beara Peninsula. Dont hesitate to book if you need a good base to travel out from. Small windows so will be dark if you want a place to stay indoors and chill out. Would be warm in Winter due to open fire and oil central heating.

“Fabulous rental”

Kathleen was great and arranged accommodation for us with Betty. Betty is an extremely lovely person. The accommodation could not be more quaint but at the same time so clean, newly renovated, has everything you need and so close to town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back some day.

“Favorite Stay in Ireland”

person found this review helpful

This was by far my favorite of the four places we stayed while in Ireland! Kathleen met us on our arrival and had a cozy fire going in the fireplace. The cottage was so comfortable and quiet. Walking around downtown and visiting the pubs was a pleasure. Jam Cafe on Henry Street is highly recommended for breakfast or just tea and scones.

My son, daughter-in-law and I really appreciated Kathleen's hospitality.

Thank you so much Kathleen!

This is a very nice place to stay for longer time. The kitchen have everything, also these small stuff like sugar, salt, tee and sometimes like. Kenmare is very lovely village, you can make shopping, sights and of corse go for a Guinness in the evening. The small cafe around the corner is soooooo gorgeous ! Thanks Kathleen for everything.
