We had a wonderful stay and the cottage sealed the trip for us.
The little stream at the back and all the homely touches made the stay that much better.
Well equipped, clean with plenty of space ,comfortable and warm.
Good location, The Red Fox 5 mins drive away with the Bog Village good food and very nice Irish Coffee.
Good local pubs in Glenbeigh and Rossbeigh beautiful beach.
The Ring of Kerry a must drive so much to see.
Killarney national park a must see .the walks are beautiful and you don't pay for parking.
Sneem is a lovely village great homemade ice cream and a good fish and chip shop.
Killorgan had all our shopping needs butchers , fish , Aldi etc... With a good kitchen we were able to sample Kerry potatoes with mussels at home .
Local food excellent.
Joan was very nice and really helpful. Thank you.
In fact the cottage was just off the busy main road but was not affected by noise. Well equipped, comfortable bed, however, the shower was poor. We could have done with instructions on how to use the heating, this would have saved us phoning Joan. It would also been handy to have some advice notes on local amenities, walks and useful telephone numbers etc on hand in the cottage - perhaps we,have been spoilt with others holiday properties we have visited previously. Enjoyed meals at The Towers Hotel. Managed to do some walking despite some inclement weather. Muckross House is worth visiting. The Gap of Dunloe is also very dramatic
Just back from a lovely week in this delightful cottage. Great location and great base for exploring the 'Kingdom' of Kerry. Had everything we needed for a nice stay. Thank you Caroline and Joan!
Sitting on the Ring of Kerry, this house offers every amenity for the keen walker and tourist. Positioned as it in right on the main road which circles the county, it provides ideal access either way on the road around Kerry, and indeed onto Dingle on the other side of the peninsula.
Best local places to visit are Valentia Island, which is a calm haven from some busier points on the Ring. Caherseveen provides some interesting architecture, history and lovely wine at the converted church-now an Italian restaurant.
We walked from Derrynene House all around the coastline and returned for tea and cake at the former home of the great Irish statesman, Daniel O'Connell.
Friendly locals, lovely pubs and brilliant beach only minutes away. Glenbeigh offers all of this, with a modern, well positioned house as a base. Ideal!
Pairc Airgead is a lovely little bungalow well situated to explore the Ring of Kerry. With quirky decor and nice touches it is perfect getaway for two. The kitchen is light and spacious and is very well equipped with plenty of pans, bowls, cutlery etc and good quality fixtures and fittings. It was lovely to have been welcomed with milk, fruit and biscuits plus there was some basic seasonings and plenty of tea towels, cleaning items etc.
The property is situated about a mile from the centre of Glenbeigh which has a range of pubs/takeaways/restaurants and a shop which sells most things you need. It is also very close to the beautiful Rossbeigh beach and lots of other nice walks and beaches. At the rear of the property there is a patio area and a grassed area which leads to a lovely little brook which our dog Poppy loved plodging in.
The only couple of things to be aware of is that the road at the front of the property is quite busy and whilst this didn't disturb us in terms of noise or prevent us from sleeping it means that you can't walk to Glenbeigh as there is no pavement and traffic does travel quite fast. The only other very small issues are that whilst the shower was hot the water pressure was poor - but I suspect this is just due to the rurality. I also found the pillows a little hard - but I am a bit picky about pillows.
The property was quiet and dark at night and the bed was good quality and comfortable. There is satellite TV but no WiFi.
We would recommend this property for those looking for a quiet getaway which gives a good location to visit lots of interesting and beautiful places on the south west coast of Ireland.
