Ardgroom Cottage Coastal Cottage Self-Catering

Holiday home
This charming detached stone cottage is situated on the outskirts of a coastal village and offers comfortable accommodation for a couple looking for a romantic getaway. The rooms are on the ground floor, but the property is elevated and has some lovely views. The kitchen is well equipped and spacious with a table that provides ample room for dining and the sitting room is cosy and welcoming with views across to Kenmare. The double bedroom is spacious and tastefully decorated and the shower room is conveniently arranged to be en-suite. Outside there is a lawned garden to the front of the property with far reaching views over to Kenmare Bay. There is a shop and pub just five minutes walk away and the cottage is the perfect place for a romantic hideaway.

Area
Situated on the stunning Bay of Kenmare, the lovely town of Kenmare overlooks the magnificent Atlantic Ocean. There are beautiful, unspoiled beaches to explore, wildlife to be spotted and coastal paths to be walked. Kenmare is a fascinating town full of interesting streets that wind and wander along and house artist's galleries, little boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Ireland. The town of Killarney is only 25 miles away and has more amenities and eateries and is well worth investigating. Beara and Dingle Peninsulas are close by as is the Ring of Kerry - all places waiting to be discovered. With all the attractions on offer, one might think that things may be hectic, but Ireland is famous for its leisurely pace of life and it doesn't disappoint.

Region
County Kerry is a mystical and unspoilt part of Ireland, with spectacular natural beauty and a fascinating history. Facing the Atlantic Ocean, it features many sandy beaches, rocky inlets and stunning peninsulas.

Self-Catering Reviews

Booking and contact with company very good.. Property was a perfect size for us in a stunning location. No problem contacting owner who was very pleasant. Unfortunately as recent reviews stated we also found the property to be very damp. After a few days even our clothes in the closets felt damp and cold. We had to pay an extreme amount for electricity as felt the need to keep heating on constantly.

After reading some of the previous reviews we were a bit apprehensive but we did not need to be.. Contacting the owner was no problem and he met us on arrival. We were told to contact him during the week if there were any problems but there weren't any.The cottage was clean and comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our electricity bill at the end of the week was 8.40 euros. Ideally suited for exploring the Beara Peninsular and within walking distance of the shop and pub. Would happily stay there again.

We were feeling a little nervous after reading the few negative reviews on here, but we had a lovely week.. The owners were easy to get hold of. There was no problem re picking up keys or getting in touch. The cottage was very clean, no smell of damp whatsoever. It was warm so didn't need to put heating on at all. When it did rain the cottage still felt cosy. Bed was very comfy and lots of storage space. Two bathrooms were a bonus. Shower was excellent (we used shower room next to cloakroom rather than ensuite shower, purely as it was hot water on demand rather than having to preheat water at mains timer). Kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need. White goods, although not the newest, were functional and clean. Cooker worked well! TV was old yes, but we didn't come to Ireland to watch TV to be honest. We were sat out on the patio most evenings or down at the local pub. We spent a week at the cottage and our total electricity usage came to 12 Euro, that was with cooking and showering everyday. 1 hour drive to Ring of Kerry, 2 hour drive to Dingle Peninsula. Lots of great walks around the local area- I recommend Ardgroom Stone Circle and the Pulleen Loop. We would stay at Ardgroom Cottage again and for the price it is very good value. Location is ideal for exploring the south west and is beautiful. The locals are very friendly. I recommend the lemon meringue pie at the local Post Office!

The location and the views are stunning.. The village is a good location for a base. As regards the cottage you should refer to the two previous feedbacks.

We were really disappointed when we arrived at the cottage.. There were no instructions regarding the use of the TV which was out of the arc! There was no hot water and no instructions on how to control it - it was only by trial and error that we eventually managed to. Everything seemed damp, there were spiders everywhere and even slugs climbing the bathroom and shower room walls. The electric oven was in a terrible state and had been painted - yes painted - all over the control knob panel with biro crosses to mark the off position, but no way of knowing which knob controlled which hotplate. In order to try and dry the place out we had to put heaters on although sparingly, as we knew we had to pay for the electricity used at 0.35 Euros per unit. Even so, we had to pay nearly 68 Euros for one week of electricity, which considering we pay £86 a MONTH for gas and electric at home, this seemed very expensive. The location was excellent, the scenery spectacular and the people we met during our travels around were very, very friendly and we may well have another holiday in Ireland, but definitely not at Ardgroom Cottage.

It was difficult to establish contact with the property owners.. They didn't respond to voicemail when I made calls to contact them as per key collection instructions. Although eventually a call was taken no particular arrangement was offered, this meant I had to make another call upon arrival and wait for a key to be brought to the property. The property description was inaccurate in terms of access via steps. The website photos did not accurately represent the "closed in" nature of the interior. The rusty white goods, ancient TV, uncomfortable furniture and other well worn items in the property were far below expectations. Heating had been left on when not required due to weather making us suspect dampness being held at bay. There was scaffolding over the bedroom roof and work commenced upon our arrival - we had not been forewarned of this. We decided within an hour not to stay at this property - it would have ruined our holiday to do so. We had to find an alternative - Sykes helped. This property had the same "tick rating" as the one we stayed at for the first week of our holiday - it did not in any sense deserve it. We would not stay in any property of this nature - ever!

The setting was ideal for exploring the area and very relaxing in the evening. The owner was most helpful, nothing was any trouble to him.

Positives first - nice area and the people seem friendly. I also believe it would be a decent place to let during the summer and even late spring/early autumn. Negatives - we booked through Hogans Cottages and for what we received it turned out to be very expensive and quite average. Until additional heating is added to the cottage it is not acceptable for winter letting. For the price we paid we did not expect that there would be one storage heater in a large room with high ceilings (electricity costs are also additional). We have informed the owner directly and he did inform me that he would add additional heaters, which I believe he will but I would recommend that this be checked out before letting during the winter.
